Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think A? How can the sides be congruent if it is dilated down a size?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The angles remain the same as even dilated triangles remain within the same angle proportion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But how is that not true? A dilation keeps a triangle similar to the original, as it only modifies proportion, not the shape.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it not congruent because it does not have the same side lengths buts its similar because when you dilate a figure the angles stay the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but it asks 'which of the statements are not true' so hence like you said the triangle is not congruent.
