1 ONGUN INGL wo triangles are congruent if there is a sequence of rigid transformations that carry one onto the other. wo triangles are also congruent if they are similar figures with a ratio of similarity of 1, that is 1 1. One way to prove triangles congruent is to prove they are similar first, and then prove that the ratio of similarity is 1. In these lessons, students find short cuts that enable them to prove triangles congruent in fewer steps, by developing five triangle congruence conjectures. hey are,,,, and HL, illustrated below. HL Note: stands for side and stands for angle. HL is only used with right triangles. he H stands for hypotenuse and the L stands for leg. he pattern appears to be but this arrangement is NO one of our conjectures, since it is only true for right triangles. ee the Math Notes boxes in Lessons and arent Guide with xtra ractice 2014 M ducational rogram. ll rights reserved. 1

2 xample 1 Use your triangle congruence conjectures to decide whether or not each pair of triangles must be congruent. ase each decision on the markings, not on appearances. Justify each answer. a. b. c. d. e. f. In part (a), the triangles are congruent by the conjecture. he triangles are also congruent in part (b), this time by the conjecture. In part (c), the triangles are congruent by the conjecture. art (d) shows a pair of triangles that are not necessarily congruent. he first triangle displays an arrangement, while the second triangle displays an arrangement. he triangles could still be congruent, but based on the markings, we cannot conclude that they definitely are congruent. he triangles in part (e) are right triangles and the markings fit the HL conjecture. Lastly, in part (f), the triangles are congruent by the conjecture M ducational rogram. ll rights reserved. ore onnections Geometry

3 xample 2 Using the information given in the diagrams below, decide if any triangles are congruent, similar but not congruent, or not similar. If you claim the triangles are congruent or similar, create a flow chart justifying your answer. a. b. X Z V Y In part (a), by the conjecture. Note: If you only see, observe that is congruent to itself. he eflexive roperty justifies stating that something is equal or congruent to itself. = m = m = eflexive rop. In part (b), XV ~ ZYV by the ~ conjecture. he triangles are not necessarily congruent; they could be congruent, but since we only have information about angles, we cannot conclude anything else. Vertical angles = XV ~ ZYV ~ Lines, alt. int. angles = here is more than one way to justify the answer to part (b). here is another pair of alternate interior angles ( XV and ZYV) that are equal that we could have used rather than the vertical angles, or we could have used them along with the vertical angles. arent Guide with xtra ractice 2014 M ducational rogram. ll rights reserved. 3
