    to answer these you need to know congruent means identical size and shape (i.e. the triangles are exact matches)

    If you know that the 3 sides of a triangle exactly match another triangle's 3 sides, then you know the triangles are congruent. People say if you have side-side-side, the triangles are congruent. They abbreviate that sss. For example, |dw:1443727270825:dw|

    To show that 2 sides are equal, people put a mark on the "matching sides" |dw:1443727413423:dw|

    if more than one side matches then people put 2 marks, or 3 marks That means if you see this |dw:1443727535114:dw|

    Hint: Read about congruent triangles BEFORE attempting the question(s). You will find it easy. For example, try: https://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/triangles-congruent.html
