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? (Image(s) posted below.)

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.)

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

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

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

anonymous
  • anonymous
the angle is marked, right?
phi
  • phi
keep going. Yes, and little ) or )) near the angle means it matches that other triangle's ) or ))
anonymous
  • anonymous
So... would it be SAS?
phi
  • phi
How many angles are marked in one of the triangles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's not even an option on there, lol. Nvm. & two of them?
phi
  • 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
  • anonymous
im just gonna listen and learn
anonymous
  • anonymous
None of the sides are marked
phi
  • phi
First, one of the sides looks bold
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
hmm I see the angles... there could be one side ?
phi
  • phi
Second, one line is a "side" in both triangles ,
anonymous
  • anonymous
Even if it's not marked?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, it's going to be AAS?
phi
  • 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
  • UsukiDoll
I'm assuming that the triangles when they're together, they share the same side?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
so we have 2 angles and a side. AAS . yup that works

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

about what i just said where the chat was
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you for you time, @phi . Your help was greatly appreciated.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you two please take this elsewhere I',m trying to learn.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ugh whatever
UsukiDoll
  • 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

i thought u didnt know u said they should have a general chat
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yeah they should have a general chat subject area in addition to the chat box in the math section .

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

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