Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If two triangles have two angles and the included side congruent, the triangles are congruent. ASA (anglesideangle).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which ways of proving two triangles congruent do you know?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@methstudent55: if two triangles have two angle congruent, the third is also congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mathstudent55: if two triangles have two angle congruent, the third is also congruent. It is not SAS because we only have one common side, and we do not know congruence of the other sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mathmate You're correct. You can do it by ASA by first stating that the third angles are congruent, but there is a quicker way of doing it that does not require that extra step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It still takes an extra step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is a way that just by looking you can immediately conclude the triangles are congruent with out any extra steps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To prove by SAS, you need to show that one other pair of sides are congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0o its false because not much information, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@ DorelTibi: sorry that we are discussing the semantics of things, but are you able to show that the triangles are congruent?

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's not SAS. We don't have info on two sides. We only know about the side in common.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here it is: AAS. If two angles of a triangle and a not included side are congruent to corresponding parts of another triangle, the triangles are congruent.

mathmate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In fact, AAS is the equivalent of ASA, since when two angles are congruent, then congruence of any other corresponding side is sufficient to show congruence. Equivalence means that all AAS cases can be shown to be ASA and viceversa.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Indeed, AAS is easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In the end, if you do it by ASA, you need to show BD is congr to itself and <s CDB and ADB are congruent. If you do it by AAS, you only need to show BD is congr to itself. So either way you need one extra step or two extra steps before the conlcusion.
