4. ganeshie8

in between therez a side, right ?

6. ganeshie8

that becomes now Angle-Side-Angle

7. ganeshie8

check ur options, BOTH triangles must have this order of Angle-Side-Angle, for them to be congruent by ASA

8. GeOmEnTrY

Ah, I see, so the answer looks as if it would be the 1st or 2nd choice because they both look alike. Now I need to figure out which one.

9. ganeshie8

good guess, its one of those

10. ganeshie8

in the first option, the side is not included between angles, its not Angle-Side-Angle. look again

11. ganeshie8

think of it like, two angles are ur two eyes, and the side is ur nose

Oh! I now see it! The 2nd one is the answer because the side is included between the angles. I now understand it pretty well. Thank you! :)
