# Is two similar triangles are congruent?

## Is two similar triangles are congruent?

Two triangles are said to be similar if their corresponding angles are congruent and the corresponding sides are in proportion . In other words, similar triangles are the same shape, but not necessarily the same size. The triangles are congruent if, in addition to this, their corresponding sides are of equal length.

## How do you determine if two triangles are similar congruent or neither?

Identifying Triangles as Similar, Congruent, or Neither When two line segments have the same length, they are congruent. When two figures have the same shape and size, they are congruent. These two triangles are congruent. They are exactly the same in every way.

**Can all congruent triangles be similar?**

All congruent triangles cannot be similar. Only some of the congruent triangles are similar.

### How can you prove that two triangles are similar?

To show two triangles are similar, it is sufficient to show that two angles of one triangle are congruent (equal) to two angles of the other triangle. Theorem: If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, the triangles are similar.

### Are two similar figures are always congruent?

Similar figures are always congruent, whereas the congruent figures are not necessarily similar. Similar figures are always congruent, whereas the congruent figures are not necessarily similar.

**Does congruent mean similar?**

All congruent figures are similar, but not all similar figures are congruent. Congruence means two objects (whether two dimensional or three dimensional) are identical in size and shape.

## Are similar figures also congruent?

## Are all similar figures are congruent?

**Is congruent similar?**

### Are all similar figures congruent explain why?

All congruent figures are similar, but not all similar figures are congruent. Congruence means two objects (whether two dimensional or three dimensional) are identical in size and shape. Everything about them — their angles, lengths of sides, overall dimensions — are identical.

### Are similar figures congruent give examples?

Two shapes can be similar without being congruent. For example, if two triangles have the same angles but one is shape bigger than the other, they can be considered similar.

**How is congruent different from similar?**

Similar triangles have the same shape but sizes may vary but congruent triangles have the same shape and size.

## Are the two triangles congruent Why or why not?

When two pairs of corresponding angles and one pair of corresponding sides (not between the angles) are congruent, the triangles are congruent. When the hypotenuses and a pair of corresponding sides of right triangles are congruent, the triangles are congruent.

## Are all congruent figures also similar?

**Can something be congruent and similar?**

Similar figures have the same angles which means that they have the same shapes, but they differ in size. However, the sides are still in the the same ratio. Congruent shapes are always similar , but similar shapes are usually not congruent – one is bigger and one is smaller.
