**4.3 to 4.5 Proving Δs are : SSS, SAS, HL, ASA, & AAS**

2
**Objectives Use the SSS Postulate Use the SAS Postulate**

Use the HL Theorem Use ASA Postulate Use AAS Theorem

3
**Postulate 19 (SSS) Side-Side-Side Postulate**

If 3 sides of one Δ are to 3 sides of another Δ, then the Δs are .

4
**More on the SSS Postulate**

If seg AB seg ED, seg AC seg EF, & seg BC seg DF, then ΔABC ΔEDF. E D F A B C

5
EXAMPLE 1 Use the SSS Congruence Postulate Write a proof. GIVEN KL NL, KM NM PROVE KLM NLM Proof It is given that KL NL and KM NM By the Reflexive Property, LM LN. So, by the SSS Congruence Postulate, KLM NLM

6
Three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of second triangle then the two triangle are congruent. GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Decide whether the congruence statement is true. Explain your reasoning. SOLUTION Yes. The statement is true. DFG HJK Side DG HK, Side DF JH,and Side FG JK. So by the SSS Congruence postulate, DFG HJK.

7
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Decide whether the congruence statement is true. Explain your reasoning. 2. ACB CAD SOLUTION BC AD GIVEN : PROVE : ACB CAD PROOF: It is given that BC AD By Reflexive property AC AC, But AB is not congruent CD.

8
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Therefore the given statement is false and ABC is not Congruent to CAD because corresponding sides are not congruent

9
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Decide whether the congruence statement is true. Explain your reasoning. QPT RST 3. SOLUTION QT TR , PQ SR, PT TS GIVEN : PROVE : QPT RST PROOF: It is given that QT TR, PQ SR, PT TS. So by SSS congruence postulate, QPT RST. Yes the statement is true.

**Postulate 20 (SAS) Side-Angle-Side Postulate**

If 2 sides and the included of one Δ are to 2 sides and the included of another Δ, then the 2 Δs are .

11
**More on the SAS Postulate**

If seg BC seg YX, seg AC seg ZX, & C X, then ΔABC ΔZXY. B Y ) ( A C X Z

**Theroem 4.5 (HL) Hypotenuse - Leg Theorem**

If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right Δ are to the hypotenuse and a leg of a second Δ, then the 2 Δs are .

19
**Postulate 21(ASA): Angle-Side-Angle Congruence Postulate**

If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

20
**Theorem 4.6 (AAS): Angle-Angle-Side Congruence Theorem**

If two angles and a non-included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the corresponding non-included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

21
**Proof of the Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Congruence Theorem**

Given: A D, C F, BC EF Prove: ∆ABC ∆DEF D A B F C Paragraph Proof You are given that two angles of ∆ABC are congruent to two angles of ∆DEF. By the Third Angles Theorem, the third angles are also congruent. That is, B E. Notice that BC is the side included between B and C, and EF is the side included between E and F. You can apply the ASA Congruence Postulate to conclude that ∆ABC ∆DEF. E

22
Example 5: Is it possible to prove these triangles are congruent? If so, state the postulate or theorem you would use. Explain your reasoning.

23
Example 5: In addition to the angles and segments that are marked, EGF JGH by the Vertical Angles Theorem. Two pairs of corresponding angles and one pair of corresponding sides are congruent. Thus, you can use the AAS Congruence Theorem to prove that ∆EFG ∆JHG.

24
Example 6: Is it possible to prove these triangles are congruent? If so, state the postulate or theorem you would use. Explain your reasoning.

25
Example 6: In addition to the congruent segments that are marked, NP NP. Two pairs of corresponding sides are congruent. This is not enough information to prove the triangles are congruent.

26
Example 7: Given: AD║EC, BD BC Prove: ∆ABD ∆EBC Plan for proof: Notice that ABD and EBC are congruent. You are given that BD BC. Use the fact that AD ║EC to identify a pair of congruent angles.

27
**Proof: Statements: BD BC AD ║ EC D C ABD EBC ∆ABD ∆EBC**

Reasons: Given If || lines, then alt. int. s are Vertical Angles Theorem ASA Congruence Postulate
