The word for this is "similar." The same shape and the same size is "congruent."

No, that's called a similar shape, it has to be both same shape and size, Your Welcome.

Yes, it does. A congruent shape has the same shape and size as another shape. A shape that is similar is the same shape, just a different size, like a proportion.

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

No. Same shape, but different size.

Shapes that are the same except for their size are called "similar".

No. They can me different sizes. For a shape to be congruent, they need to me same size and same shape.

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

No, not unless they are made of the same substance. Different substances have different densities, which means that the same volumes will have different masses.
