Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1***How come these aren't equivalent.?*** I am not sure what you mean by equivalent. Triangles can be congruent, which means they can be overlaid exactly on top of each other, or they can be similar. Similar means their corresponding angles are congruent (equal) the angles in a 345 right triangle are not 306090 (fyi the angles in a 345 triangle are about 36.87º , 53.13º and 90º)
