```Proving Triangles
Congruent

Why do we study
triangles so much?
• Because they are the only “rigid”
shape.
• Show pictures of triangles
The Idea of a Congruence
Two geometric figures with
exactly the same size and
shape.

How much do you
need to know. . .
. . . about two triangles
to prove that they
are congruent?
Corresponding Parts
If all six pairs of corresponding parts of
two triangles (sides and angles) are
congruent, then the triangles are
congruent.

Distance Formula
• The Cartesian coordinate system is
really two number lines that are
perpendicular to each other.
• We can find distance between two
points via………..
• Mr. Moss’s favorite formula
a2 + b2 = c2
Distance Formula
• The distance formula is from
Pythagorean’s Theorem.
• Remember distance on the number
line is the difference of the two
numbers, so a  x2  x1
• And b   y2  y1 
• So


d  x2  x1    y2  y1 

To find distance:
• You can use the Pythagorean theorem
or the distance formula.
• You can get the lengths of the legs
by subtracting or counting.
• A good method is to align the points
vertically and then subtract them to
get the distance between them
• Find the distance between (-3, 7) and
(4, 3)

Why no SSA Postulate?
• We would get in trouble if someone
spelled it backwards. (bummer!)
• Really – SSA allows the possibility of
having two different solutions.
• Remember: It only takes one counter
example to prove a conjecture wrong.
• Show problem on Geo Sketch

form the right  of the Δ.

to the hyp & a leg of another rt. Δ,
then the Δ’s are .

Angle-Angle-Side (AAS)
• The proof of this is based on ASA.
• If you know two angles, you really
know all three angles.
• The difference between ASA and
AAS is just the location of the
angles and side.
• ASA – Side is between the angles
• AAS –Side is not between the angles

Right Triangle Congruence
When dealing with right triangles, you will
sometimes see the following definitions of
congruence:
HL - Hypotenuse Leg
HA – Hypotenuse Angle (AAS)
LA - Leg Angle (AAS of ASA)
LL – Leg Leg Theorem (SAS)

• Proving shapes are congruent proves
ALL corresponding dimensions are
congruent.
• For Triangles: Corresponding Parts of
Congruent Triangles are Congruent
• This includes, but not limited to,
corresponding sides, angles,
altitudes, medians, centroids,
incenters, circumcenters, etc.
They are ALL CONGRUENT!

G and H are the centroids, find AH.
