# What solid figure is a set of your parallel cross sections are circles that are similar but not congruent?

A sphere is.

### What solid figure is a set of your parallel cross sections are squares that are similar but not congruent?

A square pyramid is.

### Why are circles always congruent?

Only when they have the same diameters then they will be congruent otherwise they will be similar.

### Are circles sometimes never or always similar?

Circles are congruent when they have the same radius and they are similar when their radii are different in lengths.

### Are Two circles are congruent if their centers are the same?

No, but they can be. They would be similar.

### Are all circles congruent?

No. There are big ones, medium ones, and little bitty ones. But all circles are similar.

### Is it true that circle are congruent?

All circles are similar, they all are the same shape, regardless of size. Only if they have equal diameters, would they be congruent.

### Circles that lie in the same plane and have the same center?

They're definitely similar, concentric, and coplanar. They're not necessarily congruent, but they could be.

### What solid has cross sectional shapes taken to parallel to a base that are similar but not congruent to one another?

A tapered prism.

### What has cross-sectional shapes taken parallel to a base that are similar but not congruent to one another?

A cone or a pyramid.

### Are circles similar or congruent?

Similar, in most instances. All their interior angles add to 360 (without exception), however, the measure of the diameter, perimeter (etc) could be different.

### How is the Transitive Property of Parallel Lines similar to the Transitive Property of Congruence?

If A ~ B and B ~ C then A ~ C. The above statement is true is you substitute "is parallel to" for ~ or if you substitute "is congruent to" for ~.

### A quadilateral with opposite sides parallel and congruent?

Square Square, rectangle (opposite sides are congruent and parralel), rhombus (similar to square but different angles although opposite angles are the same)

### What sape Has Cross-sectional Shapes Taken Parallel To A Base That Are Similar But Not Congruent To One Another.?

A pyramid or cone.

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

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

### Are congruent tiangles similar?

All congruent shapes are similar, but not all similar shapes are congruent.

### What is a median median line?

It is the line joining the midpoints of two sides of a polygon - usually a triangle. This line will be parallel to the third side. The three median-median lines will divide any triangle into 4 congruent triangles that are similar to the original. It is the line joining the midpoints of two sides of a polygon - usually a triangle. This line will be parallel to the third side. The three median-median lines will… Read More

### Who are squares alike?

Squares have 4 90 degree angles and 2 sets of parallel lines and 4 congruent sides. A rectangle has the angles and parallel lines. A parallelogram has the parallel lines. A rectangle is most similar, however there are more geometric shapes with some similarities to a square.

### What are similarities of congruent shapes and similar shapes?

The angles for congruent shapes and the angles in similar shapes are all the same. All the sides are also proportional in both. Basically, all congruent shapes are similar but not all similar shapes are congruent.

### Is a trapziod congruent similar or neither?

A trapezoid can be congruent or similar to another trapezoid.

### Can two shapes be congruent and not similar?

In short, no. Similar shapes are shapes in which all corresponding angles congruent regardless of the length of the sides. Congruent shapes have congruent corresponding angles and corresponding sides. In effect congruent shapes is a special condition of similar shapes.

### 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.]

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

No. If they are congruent they must be similar. The reverse is not true, though.

### How is a rectangle similar to a parllelogram?

They both have four sides, and they both have two pairs of parallel sides. Each pair of opposite sides are congruent. The diagonals bisect each other.

### Are similar triangles always congruent?

No. A triangle is similar to one that is twice its size but the two are not congruent.

### Do two similar polygons have to be congruent?

no, they could be different size but same shape and be similar but not congruent.

### Can congruent figures be similar figures?

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

### Are two congruent pentagons either always sometimes and never similar?

If they are congruent they must be similar.

### Are congruent shapes always similar?

Yes because to be similar the shapes need to have the same ratio of sides and similar angles. To be congruent the shapes have to be the same shape and size, so 2 congruent shapes will always be 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

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

A similar figure has the same interior angles as a congruent figure but its sides are in proportion to a congruent figure.

### What words have the same meaning as same?

exact, matching, identical, alike, duplicate, twin; indistinguishable, interchangeable, corresponding, equivalent, parallel, like, comparable, similar, congruent, concordant, consonant.

### Are two triangles with corresponding congruent angles congruent?

No, they are similar. They may be congruent, but they need not be.

### Are congruent triangles similar?

Yes. Similar triangles have equal corresponding angles, and so do congruent triangles.

### Are all congruent polygons similar?

No. You can have two triangles that are congruent to one another, and two quadrilaterals that are congruent to one another. But the triangle cannot be similar to the quadrilateral!

### How do you know angles are congruent?

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

### Do similar polygons have congruent sides and congruent angles?

No. The word congruent is not applied to sides or angles.

### What determines if two polygons are congruent?

similar polygons may not be congruent (different sizes) congruent polygons are always similar (equal in every geometric respect - including

### Are congruent triangles always similar?

No, congruent triangles are always similar but similar triangles and not always congruent. Imagine that similar triangles can be created on a copy machine enlarge and shrink the image, turn it, even turn it over, the angles remain the same. A congruent triangle must be exactly the same as the original. Hope this helps!

### Are similar triangles congruent?

Yes, similar triangles are congruent because in order to be congruent they must first be equal. Which in turn is the definition of a similar triangle. A triangle equal in angle measurements and/or side lengths. So, yes.

### 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.

### How are congruent and similar shapes different?

Similar shapes are the same shape and not the same size but congruent shapes are exactly alike

### Why congruence is a special case of similarity?

Term similar is more wide than term congruent. For example: if you say that two triangles are congruent that automatically means that they are similar, but if you say that some two triangles are similar it doesn't have to mean that they are congruent.

### True or false Similar polygons have congruent sides and congruent angles?

False. The angles will be congruent, but the sides not so.
