Postulate: Side-Side-Side Postulate (S.S.S.)
If the three sides of one triangle are congruent to the three sides of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. Postulate: Ex: Which sides must first be proved congruent in order to prove the triangles congruent using the S.S.S. Postulate? 1) A B C D 2) E F 3) X
