    they might be similar but you cant say thyre congruent. you cant compare the side lenghts of one with the angles of another

    ***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 3-4-5 right triangle are not 30-60-90 (fyi the angles in a 3-4-5 triangle are about 36.87º , 53.13º and 90º)
