### What is a similarity transformation different from a congruence transformation?

The size of the shape changes with a similarity transformation (enlargement), whereas it does not with a congruence transformation.

### Complete this sentence after a congruence transformation the area of a triangle would be it was before?

This sentence can be complete as: After a congruence transformation the area of a triangle would be the same as it was before.

### What is a congruence transformation?

A congruence transformation of a shape is one that does not alter the size (area) or the relative lengths and positions of the lines. Translations, rotations and reflections are all example of simple transformations which are congruent.

### Is reflecting a congruence transformation?

YES ---- Explanation: An isometry is a distance-preserving mapping. . Geometric figures which can be related by an isometry are called congruent. Reflection preserves distance so it is an isometry. It reverses orientation so it is called an indirect orientationl

### What is a congruence transformation A.Shrinking B.Rotating C.Stretching?

Rotation is congruent.

### When After a congruence transformation the area of a triangle would be?

It would be left unchanged.

### What does rigid mean in maths?

A transformation is said to be rigid if it preserves relative distances.

### A triangle that is translated reflected or rotated and preserves its shape is said to be?

A Congruent Transformation.

### Is dilating a congruence transformation?

no because i just had a quiz which asked that and i checked no and it waqs right... so im positive..

### What are all preserves in South Dakota?

There are many different kinds of preserves in South Dakota: Preserves (as in Jams and Jellies) Historical Preserves Nature Preserves Private Shooting Preserves Pheasant Preserves Commercial Hunting Preserves Fishing Preserves Goose Hunting Preserves

### How can we use dilating and congruence transformation to prove two triangles are similar?

Recall that two triangles are similar if one is simply a larger or smaller version of the other. So if you can make one bigger or smaller (this is called dilating) so that it looks exactly the same as another (and would fit exactly if moved with a congruence transform), then this would show similarity.

### 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

### 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 is the possessive form of the word preserves?

The possessive form of the plural noun preserves is preserves'. Example: The preserves' flavors are raspberry, cherry, and peach.

### What are congruence theorems or postulates SSS?

the congruence theorems or postulates are: SAS AAS SSS ASA

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

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

### 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 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.

### 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 âˆ A â‰Œ âˆ B then âˆ B â‰Œ âˆ A and when âˆ A â‰Œ âˆ C then âˆ C â‰Œ âˆ A and when âˆ C â‰Œ âˆ B then âˆ B â‰Œ âˆ C This is the definition of symmetric property of congruence.

### Who discovered congruence of triangles?

Pascal (both the Persians and the Chinese) discovered the congruence of traingle during the eleventh century

### The hl congruence theorem for right triangle special case of?

It is a special case of: the 3 sides (SSS) congruence, using Pythagoras, the 2 sides and included angle (SAS) congruence, using the sine rule.

### Congruence in a sentence?

In order to prove the triangle's congruence, he had to find the measure of all three sides. trust please -dan

### What is the definition of substitution property of congruence?

There is not Substitution Property of Congruence. There is, however, one for Equality, called the Substitution Property of Equality.

### Angle-angle-angle guarantees congruence between two triangles?

No it doesn't. It guarantees similarity, but not congruence.

### Why is the angle angle side congruence theorem important?

It is no more nor less important than any other theorem for congruence.

### If you have two boxes 12cmhigh12cmlong 12cmwide are they congruent or not similar?

No. Congruence implies similarity, so they are also similar. Though similarity is not enough for congruence.

### Why is AAA not an appropriate conjecture for triangle congruence?

It does not necessarily prove congruence but it does prove similarity. You can have a smaller or bigger triangle that has the same interior angles.

### 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 SSA in geometry?

It refers to the congruence of two sides and a non-included angle of one triangle with that of another. SSA does not imply congruence of the triangles.

### 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.

### Why are strawberry preserves called ''preserves''?

Because they are preserved in a jar, and while most strawberries would rot, they last longer and to me, they taste the same.

### What will happen if you open preserves and do not refrigerate?

They will spoil. There are no preservatives in home canned preserves.

### How would you describe goal congruence in a business setting?

Goal congruence occurs when the goals of the employees and the goals of the company become intertwined and meshed together.

### Which of the following is the right triangle congruence theorem?

There is nothing specific folloing right triangle congruence theorem. It depends on the order in whih the syllabus is taught.

### What are the 2 triangle congruence theorems?

The two triangle congruence theorems are the AAS(Angle-Angle-Side) and HL(Hypotenuse-Leg) congruence theorems. The AAS congruence theorem states that if two angles and a nonincluded side in one triangle are congruent to two angles and a nonincluded side in another triangle, the two triangles are congruent. In the HL congruence theorem, if the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and one leg of another right triangle, the two triangles… Read More
