If triangle ABC is congruent to triangle JKL list the three pairs of equal sides.

Is the diagram complete? I mean, I know you have to have a more detailed diagram here....

4. hba

Lemme show.

5. Stormegeddon

Actually I don't have a diagram for my homework I have to complete the sentence or in this case list something. No diagram though

6. rajathsbhat

OHH I get it now.

7. hba

Raj you wanna explain or should i continue ?

8. hba

9. rajathsbhat

hba, all yours.

10. hba

Nah,I hate geometry.

11. Stormegeddon

I don't understand geometry O_o

12. hba

This is Easy Dude.

13. Stormegeddon

not for me O_o

14. Stormegeddon

three pairs r A = J, B = K, and C = L?

15. rajathsbhat

Ok then. The question would be more accurate if stated as "If triangle ABC is congruent to triangle JKL *in that order* list the three pairs of equal sides. Anyway, all you have to do is draw two identical triangles, each being scalene, like this:|dw:1353957312750:dw| Close enough.

16. rajathsbhat

The trick lies in naming the vertices. You can name the first triangle anyway you want. Let's name the vertices A,B,C in the counter-clockwise direction. Now, when you name the second triangle, be careful to name the vertices K,L,M in the same order & starting from the same equivalent point. Like this:|dw:1353957699668:dw| All you have to do now is compare the two triangles & write down the equal sides.

17. Stormegeddon

A = K, B = L, and C = M?

18. rajathsbhat

Sides. They want sides which have the same measurement. For ex, one of the sides of ABC is AB right? So which *side* of KLM is equal to side BC?

19. rajathsbhat

A, K, B etc are vertices--points of the triangle.

20. Stormegeddon

Oh ... so... AB = KL, BC = LM, CA = MK?

21. rajathsbhat

There ya go. Good job.

22. Stormegeddon

Help with one more plz?

23. Stormegeddon

if triangle CAB is congruent to triangle FEG list the three pairs of equal angles. Is the answer similar to the one above? with just the single ones though not the doubles

24. rajathsbhat

Yes. Absolutely.

25. Stormegeddon

So A = K, B = L, and C = M. :) thanks

26. rajathsbhat

yeah, angleA=angleK and so on...

Corresponding parts :D
