### 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)

### 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 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

### 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

### Are all rectangles all congruent to one another?

No, nor are they similar. No shape can always be congruent to others in its class, but appropriately specified shapes (sufficiently specified angles and proportion of line segments) are always similar.

### If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangls?

The triangles are similar.

### What does congruent mean in shapes?

A shape that is similar to another freakin shape i <3 Justin bieber

### 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.

### 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.

### What is the definition of a parallel character?

A parallel character is another character (in the same piece of literature or another) that is very similar if not almost exactly the same as the original character chosen.

### Can congruent figures be similar figures?

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

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

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

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

If they are congruent they must be similar.

### Are similar triangles always congruent?

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

### 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.

### 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.

### Does congruent means having the same size and shape?

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.

### 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

### What is the relationship between corresponding sides in similar triangles?

Corresponding sides are congruent with one another, meaning they have the same length/measurement
