Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1three pairs r A = J, B = K, and C = L?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 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 counterclockwise 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sides. 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A, K, B etc are verticespoints of the triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh ... so... AB = KL, BC = LM, CA = MK?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So A = K, B = L, and C = M. :) thanks
