I have to identify the postulate or theorem that proves the triangles congruent.
I've been looking at some examples online, and I'm still very confused. Could someone kindly explain to me, so I can understand better?

probably SAS , SSS, or ASA

congruent also means equivalent. . .

Yeah I know, but when I look at the website, and look at the examples, I still don't quite understand. (I'm about to post another photo.)

- UsukiDoll

I think there's a theorem some where about angles and sides being congruent like SAS? Let me check

- UsukiDoll

The Side Angle Side postulate (often abbreviated as SAS) states that if two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then these two triangles are congruent.

Look at what you are "given" in one of the triangles, the "marked" angles and sides
what is marked in one of the triangles?

- UsukiDoll

ok hint: SSA theorem doesn't exist.. try typing SSA backwards. (sorry mod but it's kind of funny xD)

- anonymous

I've been looking at the definitions, but determining which of the terms goes with it is difficult for me.

- phi

- anonymous

the angle is marked, right?

- phi

keep going. Yes, and little ) or )) near the angle means it matches that other triangle's ) or ))

- anonymous

So... would it be SAS?

- phi

How many angles are marked in one of the triangles?

- anonymous

That's not even an option on there, lol. Nvm. & two of them?

- phi

yes, two angles are marked (and they match the two angles in the other triangle that are marked)
so you should start by thinking AA something
next, what about the sides? are any "marked" ?

- anonymous

im just gonna listen and learn

- anonymous

None of the sides are marked

- phi

First, one of the sides looks bold

- UsukiDoll

hmm I see the angles... there could be one side ?

- phi

Second, one line is a "side" in both triangles ,

- anonymous

Even if it's not marked?

- anonymous

So, it's going to be AAS?

- phi

I think the "bold" means it is marked. but even if it were not, I would say that side is congruent in both triangles.
so AAS

- UsukiDoll

I'm assuming that the triangles when they're together, they share the same side?

- UsukiDoll

so we have 2 angles and a side. AAS . yup that works

- UsukiDoll

I didn't send anything inappropriate to you @DaBest21. I said in the message to show some respect before I blocked you.

- phi

The way you know it is not ASA is
A S A means angle , then a side , then an angle.
your picture shows
angle, angle , side (if you start at the correct angle)

- anonymous

about what i just said where the chat was

- anonymous

Thank you for you time, @phi . Your help was greatly appreciated.

- anonymous

Can you two please take this elsewhere I',m trying to learn.

- anonymous

Ugh whatever

- UsukiDoll

no. You were being rude me by assuming that I didn't know where the chat is and I already do . So stop going into other people's questions. I said learn some respect. There is nothing inappropriate about it @Dabest21

- anonymous

i thought u didnt know u said they should have a general chat

- UsukiDoll

yeah they should have a general chat subject area in addition to the chat box in the math section .

- anonymous

oh sorry i just misunderstood i didnt mean to start a fight

- UsukiDoll

I just got a warning from a mod for something I didn't do. I'm about to quit openstudy.

- anonymous

oh :(

- anonymous

dont what was it about

- UsukiDoll

the warning claimed that I've done the off topic question which I didn't in the first place. I'm being wrongly accused here.

- anonymous

oh thats wierd

- UsukiDoll

that wasn't me who did that. :/

- anonymous

well srry about before

- UsukiDoll

same here... but I hate openstudy now for what just happened. I'm being wrong accused.
:*(

- UsukiDoll

*wrongly accused. after all I did for them.

- anonymous

that happened to me once it said i was spamming the chat when i didnt know they had a chat

- UsukiDoll

trying to enforce the rules in here... helping others... some people even want me to apply for ambi and qh. And they did this to me?

- UsukiDoll

Openstudy just stabbed me in the back!

- anonymous

:*(

- UsukiDoll

I don't care if I reach 90 SS now.

- anonymous

just keep going its just one warning right?

- UsukiDoll

I don't care...

- anonymous

i mean i dont know if it affects anything

- UsukiDoll

I really don't care. . . OpenStudy stabbed me in the back... I'm super upset.

- anonymous

well im srry and im gonna go do more questions so just send me a message if u need anything
