You have seen that two triangles are congruent if they have six pairs of congruent
corresponding parts. However, it is not always possible to check all three pairs of corresponding
sides and all three pairs of corresponding angles. Fortunately, there are shortcuts for
determining whether two triangles are congruent.
Prove two triangles are congruent by applying the Side-Angle-Side,
Angle-Side-Angle, Side-Side-Side, Angle-Angle-Side, and HypotenuseLeg congruence conditions. Also G.3.B, G.5.A, G.5.C
If two angles and the included side of one triangle
are congruent to two angles and the included side
of another triangle, the triangles are congruent.

Math Background
Students know that when triangles are congruent, all pairs of corresponding sides
and corresponding angles are congruent. As an extension of that, students to
begin to develop converses of the statement that Corresponding Parts of
Congruent Triangles Are Congruent in which they do not need to know that all
six pairs of corresponding parts are congruent in order to prove that triangles are
congruent. In this lesson, they explore the Angle-Side-Angle (ASA) Theorem.
They find that if they can prove that two angles and the included side of one
triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, the
triangles are congruent.
1/22/15 3:04 AM
What is the benefit of using the Angle-SideAngle Theorem instead of CPCTC? You need
to find only three pairs of congruent corresponding
parts with ASA, as opposed to six pairs with CPCTC.

EXPLAIN 1
You can state your findings about triangle congruence as a theorem. This theorem can help you
decide whether two triangles are congruent.
Deciding Whether Triangles Are
Congruent Using ASA Triangle
Congruence
ASA Triangle Congruence Theorem
If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and
the included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Example 1
CONNECT VOCABULARY
Remind students that the ASA Triangle Congruence
Theorem is a shortened form of its full name, the
Angle-Side-Angle Triangle Congruence Theorem.
When you write ASA, it is helpful to read it aloud as
Angle-Side-Angle and have students do the same to
reinforce what it means.

Give each pair pictures of congruent and
non-congruent triangles, highlighters, protractors,
and rulers. Instruct them to prove which pairs are
congruent by using Angle-Side-Angle to prove it.
Have students highlight the angles and the side they
used to show congruence, and write notes explaining
why the triangles are congruent.

Step 2 Compare the angle measures and side lengths.
m∠A = m∠D = 45°, AC = DF = 2.3 cm, and m∠C = m∠F = 61°
_ _
So, ∠A ≅ ∠D, AC ≅ DF, and ∠C ≅ ∠F.
_

∠A and ∠C include side AC, and ∠D and ∠F include side DF.
So, △ABC ≅ △DEF by the ASA Triangle Congruence Theorem.

QUESTIONING STRATEGIES
Why do you need to find the measure of the
missing angle to use the ASA Triangle
Congruence Theorem? The two sides that you know
are congruent need to be the included sides, so you
need to know the measures of the angles at their
endpoints.

None of the angles in △MNP has a measure of 110° .
Therefore, there is/is not a sequence of rigid motions that maps
△MNP onto △JKL, and △MNP is/is not congruent to △JKL.
Reflect
4.
In Part B, do you need to find m∠K? Why or why not?
No; you only need to know that △JKL has an angle (∠L) that is not congruent to any
angle of △MNP. At that point, you can conclude that the triangles are not congruent.

Why would you use the ASA Triangle
Congruence Theorem? What do you need to
know to use it? You would use the ASA Triangle
Congruence Theorem to prove that two triangles
are congruent by using only three pairs of
congruent parts. You need to know that two pairs of
corresponding angles are congruent and the
included sides between those angles are also
congruent.

10. Discussion Suppose you and a classmate both draw triangles with a 30° angle, a
70° angle, and a side that is 3 inches long. How will they compare? Explain your
reasoning.
The triangles will be congruent by the ASA Triangle Congruence Theorem
if the 3 inch side is the included side. Otherwise, the triangles will have
the same shape but not necessarily the same size.

11. Discussion How can a diagram show you that corresponding parts of two triangles
are congruent without providing specific angle measures or side lengths?
Possible answer: Vertical angles are congruent. Overlapping sides are
congruent. Right angles are congruent. Angles or sides marked with
congruence symbols are congruent.
12. Essential Question Check-In What must be true in order for you to use the ASA
Triangle Congruence Theorem to prove that triangles are congruent?
Two angles and the included side of one triangle must be congruent to two
angles and the included side of another triangle.
