# If two figures are congruent then they are similar?

Yes. Congruence implies similarity. Though similarity is not enough for congruence.

### Can congruent figures be similar and can similar figures be congruent?

Congruent figures are always similar. However, similar figures are only sometimes congruent.

### What is the difference between similar and congruent?

Congruent means two figures have exactly the same shape and size. If the shape is identical, but not the size , two figures are similar.

### Can two figures be congruent but not similar?

no because if they are conmgruent then they are similar

### How do you compare and contrast congruent and similar?

Similar means they are of the same shape but not necessary the same size. two figure are congruents when they are of the same shape and size. congruent figures can be similar but not similar figures aren't always congruent

### Can congruent figures be similar figures?

All congruent figures are similar figures, and have identical sizes.

### 1What is the difference between congruent and similar?

Two congruent geometric figures have the same shape and the same size, whereas two similar geometric figures have the same shape but they differ in size.

### How are similar and congruent figures the same?

Congruent figures are similar - in sides as well as angles. Corresonding angles of similar figures congruent but their sides are not. The sides are all in some fixed ratio. [If that ratio is 1, the figures are congruent.]

### How do you know if two figures are similar or congruent?

congruent figures are the same shape and the same size while similar figures are the same shape but different sizes and it doesn't matter which way the shape is facing

### What is different about similar and congruent figures?

Congruent figures are identical in dimensions and angles whereas similar figures have dimensions in proportion to congruent figures but both have exactly the same angles.

### What is alike and different about similar and congruent figures?

If two figures are similar or congruent, each angle of the first figure is the same as the corresponding angle of the second figure. In similar figures, the ratio of each side in the first figure to the corresponding side in the second figure is a constant. If the figures are congruent, that ratio is 1: that is, the corresponding sides are of the same measure.

### If two figures are similar then are they also congruent?

No. Two figures are similar if they have same shape, and all the angles are equal; but they can have the sides of different sizes. I mean, similar figures may have different sizes, but must have the same shape.

### What is the difference between similar figures and congruent figures?

similar figures have the same shape but not the same lengths, while congruent shapes are the same as eachother.

### Why are two figures similar if their angles are the same?

because if you shrink or grow a similar figure, it would be congruent.

### What do you call two figures the have identical sides and shapes?

You would call them congruent or similar.

### What word describes has the same position in two different similar figures and are congruent?

supplementary

### Definition of Congruent Figures?

The Definition of Congruent Figures (which is a proof) says that if two figures have corresponding sides congruent and corresponding angles congruent, then the figures are to be congruent.

### Can you use regular pipe cleaners for tone hole cleaners?

Congruent figures are always similar. However, similar figures are only sometimes congruent.

### Are all similar figures are congruent?

No because Similar figures are the same shape, angles, and types but not lengths. Congruent means EXACTLY the same in everything.

### How do you know angles are congruent?

Angles are congruent if they are equal. Corresponding angles in figures that are similar are congruent.

### Why are squares similar but not congruent?

They may be of different sizes. Congruent figures have the same size. They may be of different sizes. Congruent figures have the same size. They may be of different sizes. Congruent figures have the same size. They may be of different sizes. Congruent figures have the same size.

### Are figures with congruent angles always similar?

yes they are because they have congruent sides

### How are similar figures different from congruent figures?

They have the same properties but are smaller in size.

### When are two similar figures also congruent?

If the scale factor is 1. That is, if a pair of corresponding sides are the same length.

### What is the difference between congruent and similar figures?

Congruent figures have exactly the same shape; you could superimpose one on the other and see only one figure. Similar figures have some points of similarity but do not have to be exactly the same.

### Explain why similar figures are not always congruent?

similar figures have the same angles but not necessarily the same side lengths

### What does it mean for two figures to be similar?

When two figures are similar it means that its the same size and length and that they both have same features in other words it means that its congruent. Simply put : they have the same shape, same angles and proportional side lengths.

### Are all similar geometric figures are also congruent?

No, something could be similar to something else, but be bigger. To be congruent they need to be the exactly the same.

### What does it mean when two figures are congruent?

Two figures are congruent when they have the exact same angles within them. However, one of the figures might be blown up or shrunk. (Just not Skewed/Stretched). for example: A is congruent to but isn't congruent to A Since it's slanted (skewed). === === == == == ==

### Are congruent figures always similar figures?

Yes, congruence is a stronger condition than similarity.

### Why are congruent figures similar?

because all the sides are equal congruent means equal like a square

### What is the similiarity between a congruent and non-congruent figure?

Congruent means that two figures have the same shape. Non-congruent means they don't. There is no "similarity"; two non-congruent figures can be just about anything, for example a square and a circle.

### Do similar figures have the same shape and size?

Similar means that the figures are the same shape yet not the same size. If the figures are the exact same size and shape, then they are congruent.

### Figures that have the same size or shape?

Figures that have the same size are congruent, and the ones that have the same shape are similar.

### How do you know if two figures are congruent or not?

They are congruent if they are identical in shape and size.

### What is it called when figures have the same shape but not the same size?

Figures that have the same shape but not size are similar. Figures that have the same size are congruent.

### Do similar figures always have corresponding angles that are equil?

Yes, similar figures always have congruent corresponding angles and proportional corresponding side lengths.

### Are Equal angles are always congruent?

the shape? no, not always. but they are always at least similar figures. but the angles alone are always congruent
