    The coordinates of the vertices of triangle ABC are A( -4, 4), B(-4, 2), C(-2,2) and triangle PQR are P(2, 4), Q(2, 2), R(0, 2). Which statement is correct?

    a. Triangle ABC and triangle PQR are regular triangles. b. The two triangles are congruent by the AAA property. c. Triangle ABC is congruent to triangle PQR by the SSS property. d. The two triangles are similar because the ratio of their corresponding sides is two.

    What do you see similar about these two triangles?

    The two triangles are congruent. But which property?

    Cool, thanks! (sorry I was going to respond to the question, I was just looking up the difference between the 2)

    I messed that up, sorry. Side Side Side or Angle Angle Angle?

    The Side Side Side postulate states that if three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of another triangle, then these two triangles are congruent.

    So it is SSS?

    AAA (Angle Angle Angle) does not prove that two triangles are congruent. However, it does make two triangles similar.

    Yes, SSS.
