Congruence of Triangles
When two triangles are congruent, then their corresponding parts are also equal or same
So, when two lines, AB and XY are corresponding, they are represented as:
Line AB ↔ Line XY
When two angles, ∠ A and ∠ Y are corresponding, they are represented as:
∠ A ↔ ∠ X
When two vertices, A and Y are corresponding, they are represented as:
Vertex A ↔ Vertex X
Example: △ ABC and △ YXZ are congruent as per following correspondence:
ABC ↔ YXZ
Write which parts of △ YXZ corresponds to following parts of △ ABC:
Line AC
Line CB
Line CA
Line BA
∠ A
∠ B
∠ C
Solution: △ ABC and △ YXZ are congruent as per following correspondence; ABC ↔ YXZ, so the corresponding parts of △ YXZ are as:
Line AC ↔ Line YZ
Line CB ↔ Line ZX
Line CA ↔ Line ZY
Line BA ↔ Line XY
∠ A ↔ ∠ Y
∠ B ↔ ∠ X
∠ C ↔ ∠ Z
