Proving Triangles Congruent Part 2
AAS Theorem If two angles and one of the non- included sides in one triangle are congruent to two angles and one of the non-included sides in another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

AAS vs. ASA ASAAAS
Parts of a Right Triangle legs hypotenuse
HL Theorem RIGHT TRIANGLES ONLY! If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

There’s no such thing as AAA AAA Congruence: These two equiangular triangles have all the same angles… but they are not the same size!
Recap: There are 5 ways to prove that triangles are congruent: SSS SAS ASA AAS HL
Examples A B C D B is the midpoint of AC SAS ABD CBD K J L N M H AAS MLN HJK S: AB BC A: ABD CBD S: DB DB A: L J A: M H S: LN JK
