Two figures with the same size and shape called congruent.

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.

Any two figures, polygonal or not, that are the same shape and size. Any two figures, polygonal or not, that are the same shape and size. Any two figures, polygonal or not, that are the same shape and size. Any two figures, polygonal or not, that are the same shape and size.

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

it is similar, easy as that. congruent is same shape same size ans similar is same shape different size similar=two figures that have the same shape, but not necessarily the same size

They are congruent. Figures that only have the same size or only have the same shape as each other are "similar".

You call figures with the same shape and size as congruent shapes. I hope this helped.

congruent * * * * * No. COngruence does require same size. The figures in question are SIMILAR.

Similar figures are geometrical figures, which have the same shape but not the same size

Congruent figures are figures that have the same size and shape.

If two geometrical figures have the same size and shape, they are said to be congruent.

Similar figures have the same shape but not necessarily the same size

Your question is not clear. Please reword and clarify. similar=two figures that have the same shape, but not necessarily the same size

Similar figures are polygons with the same shape but a different size. eg: 5cm square compared to a 10cm square = similar figures. Same shape but different size.

All of them are the exact same size no matter what it is.

equal, the same as, mathmatically similar, exactly the same as each other etc. The technical term for figures of identical size and shape is "isomorphic".
