# What is Asa congruence postulate?

Angle side angle congruence postulate. The side has to be in the middle of the two angles

### Is a ASA triangle similarity postulate?

Since ASA is a congruence postulate and congruence implies similarity, then the answer is : yes.

### What additional congruence do you need in order to prove that abe dbc by the asa congruence postulate?

We definitely need to see the drawing that goes along with that question before we can even begin to try and answer it.

### What are the four congruence postulates?

The postulates that involve congruence are the following : SSS (Side-Side-Side) Congruence Postulate - If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. SAS (Side-Angle-Side) Congruence Postulate - If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another triangle, the triangles are congruent. ASA (Angle-Side-Angle) Congruence Postulate - If two angles and the included side of one… Read More

### Which theorem is used to prove the AAS triangle congruence postulate theorem?

The ASA theorem and the fact that the three angles of any triangle sum to 2*pi radians (180 degrees).

### What saa congruence postulate?

SAA Congruence Postulate states that if two angles and a side opposite one of the angles are the same, the triangles are congruent.

### What is the congruence throemand postulate of asa?

I assume "throemand" is your fail at spelling "theorem and". The theorem states that if two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

### What are congruence theorems or postulates SSS?

the congruence theorems or postulates are: SAS AAS SSS ASA

### What is asa postulate?

The Angle Side Angle postulate( ASA) states that if two angles and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then these two triangles are congruent.

### What is ass or ssa congruence postulate?

The ASS postulate would be that: if an angle and two sides of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding angle and two sides of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. The SSA postulate would be similar. Neither is true.

### What are the only two triangle congruence shortcuts that do not work?

The only Two Triangle congruence shortcuts that do not prove congruence are: 1.AAA( Three pairs of angles in a triangle) & 2.ASS or SSA(If the angle is not in between the two sides like ASA.

### Is LMN OPQ If so name the congruence postulate that applies?

congruent - SSS Answer by Arteom, Friday December 10, 2010

### What is the definition of AAS Congruence postulate of trianges?

It is a theorem, not a postulate, since it is possible to prove it. If two angles and a side of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding angles and side of another triangle then the two triangles are congruent.

### How is the Hinge Theorem alike to the SAS Congruence Postulate?

Chyna Lachano Pendelton daughter of Latonya Scott knows the answer. Hit upp her Facebook. ^.^

### How does the ASA congruence theorem differ form the AAS congruence theorem?

ASA or Angle Side Angle differs from the AAS in that the order of the sides or angles are stated is the same as they are labeled on a triangle. Just because the letters are shifted doesn't make them different. There are three angles on a triangle and there are only two stated so the two stated cannot be assigned to angles with a side in between them for AAS, or a side at either… Read More

### What is the Angle-side-angle congruence postulate?

First of all, it's a theorem, not a postulate. It says: Two triangles are congruent if they have two angles and the included side of one equal respectively to two angles and the included side of the other.

### SSA side-side-angle guarantees congruence between two triangles?

true True -- SSA does NOT guarantee congruence. Only SAS, SSS, and ASA can do that (and AAS, because if two pairs of corresponding angles are congruent, the third has to be).

### What is SSS used for in geometry?

SSS is a postulate used in proving that two triangles are congruent. It is also known as the "Side-Side-Side" Triangle Congruence Postulate. It states that if all 3 sides of a triangle are congruent to another triangles 3 sides, then both triangles are congruent.

### What are reasons used in the proof that the angle-bisectors construction can be used to bisect any angle?

All of the radii of a circle are congruent CPCTC sss triangle congruence postulate

### What postulate or theorem verifies the congruence of triangles?

sss There are five methods for proving the congruence of triangles. In SSS, you prove that all three sides of two triangles are congruent to each other. In SAS, if two sides of the triangles and the angle between them are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In ASA, if two angles of the triangles and the side between them are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In AAS, if two angles and one of… Read More

### What are the congruence shortcuts?

SSS-side, side, side SAS-side, angle, side ASA-angle, side, angle SAA-side, angle, angle

### Which of the following are reasons used in the proof that the angle bisector construction can be used to bisect any angle?

-CPTCP -SSS triangle congruence postulate -all of the radii of the circle are congruent apex :)

### Angle-Side-AnglePostulate in Figure?

The Angle-Side-Angle postulate can be used to prove congruence between two triangles. However, for this particular question, there is no figure available to develop that proposition.

### Is side angle angle a congruence shortcut?

No, the side-side-angle in congruence shortcut DOESN'T exist..hint-SSA turns backward--->ASS<---thats the problem of no word will come on math..kinda funny to laugh about but SSA=GET rid off it! use SSS, SAS, ASA, SAA, SSS, and AAA.

### Who came up with the geometry postulate of sss sas asa and aas?

The SSS, ASA and SAA postulates together signify what conditions must be present for two triangles to be congruent. Do all of the conditions this postulates represent together have to be present for two triangles to be congruent ? Explain.

### What are the five triangle congruency theorems?

SSS, SAS, ASA, AAS, RHS. SSA can prove congruence if the angle in question is obtuse (if it's 90 degrees, then it's exactly equivalent to RHS).

### What is Asa for congruence?

If a side and two angles at either end of it (Angle-Side-Angle = ASA) of one triangle are the same measure as that of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent. In fact, it does not have to be the angles at the ends of the sides in question since two angles being equal means that the third pair of angle will also be equal. So as long as the ASA are in corresponding… Read More

### What is triangle congruence theorem?

There are three main ways to prove to triangles congruent. If all the sides match, if a side then an included angle and the next side and last angle-side angle. SSS, SAS. ASA

### Which theorem is used to prove that aas triangle congruence postulate theorem?

AAS: If Two angles and a side opposite to one of these sides is congruent to the corresponding angles and corresponding side, then the triangles are congruent. How Do I know? Taking Geometry right now. :)

### Are the two right triangles TRS and WUV congruent If so name the congruence postulate that applies?

To be congruent, the three angles of a triangle must be the same and the three sides must be the same. If triangles TRS and WUV meet those conditions, they are congruent.

### A hypotenuse and an acute angle define congruence?

Yes. If you know two angles of a triangle, then you know all three. Why? Because they sum to 180 deg. So you have the hypotenuse and the angles at either end then you have ASA. AAS may not be sufficient for congruence but ASA IS. Another way of looking at it: suppose the hypotenuse is h and the known acute angle is x. Then, the side adjacent to the angle is h*cos(x) while the… Read More

### Which postulate or theorem can be used to prove that triangle PRS is congruent to triangle QRS?

We cannot determine without seeing the data for PRS & QRS. My guess though would be ASA Though it could also be SSS

### What does sas mean in geometery?

It is an acronym for the postulate "Side Angle Side". This is used to determine a triangle's congruency to other triangles. SAS is grouped often with SSS, AAS, and ASA (all "A"s are angle, all "S"s are side.)

### What is reflexive symmetric and transitive properties of Congruence?

Congruence is basically the same as equality, just in a different form. Reflexive Property of Congruence: AB =~ AB Symmetric Property of Congruence: angle P =~ angle Q, then angle Q =~ angle P Transitive Property of Congruence: If A =~ B and B =~ C, then A =~ C

### What is the postulate that says that any quantity is equal to itself?

Reflexive Postulate, or Identity Postulate.

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

Yes. Congruence implies similarity. Though similarity may not be enough for congruence. Congruence means they are exactly the same size and shape.

### What are SSS SAS RHS and AAS as regards proof of congruence?

These are all congruency tests for triangles. S=side A=angle R=right angle H=hypotenuse Take one of the tests for example. AAS If two angles and one side is the same between two triangles, then the triangles are congruent. A link is provided to the Wikipedia article on congruence. It's really easy to read and understand. And it has drawings, too. (ASA was not included in the list, but it is covered in the Wikipedia post with… Read More

### What is The difference between similarity and congruence?

similarity and congruence are both different. Congruence is when two shapes are identical; in size and shape whereas similarity is when two shapes look similar but can vary in size.

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

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

### What is the definition of symmetric in the Properties of congruence?

When in a triangle, for angle A, B, C; As the symmetric property of congruence , when ∠A ≌ ∠B then ∠B ≌ ∠A and when ∠A ≌ ∠C then ∠C ≌ ∠A and when ∠C ≌ ∠B then ∠B ≌ ∠C This is the definition of symmetric property of congruence.
