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

18 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 EFProve: ∆ABC ∆DEFDABFCParagraph ProofYou 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.
