## 6 Questions

If two triangles have two sides and an included angle equal to a given angle, when can we conclude that the triangles are congruent?

When the two sides included in the angle are equal in length.

What can we conclude about the angles in two triangles if the sides opposite the included angle are equal?

The angles opposite the included angle are also equal.

In which scenario can we conclude that two triangles are not congruent?

When only one pair of sides and one angle are equal in both triangles.

What should be verified to ensure the congruence of two triangles beyond checking sides and angles corresponding to a given angle?

The measurement of at least one additional angle and side must be equal.

How do we verify if two triangles are congruent using different angles and sides?

By examining corresponding pairs of sides and angles in each triangle.

What is an essential step suggested in the text for understanding and applying triangular relationships effectively?

Practicing by verifying relationships in various triangles with different measures.

## Study Notes

- The text is about understanding relationships between angles in a triangle.
- Two triangles, each with two sides and an included angle equal to a given angle, are being compared.
- The text explains that if the two sides included in the angle are equal in both triangles, then the two triangles are congruent.
- The text also explains that if the sides opposite the included angle are equal in both triangles, then the two angles opposite the included angle are also equal.
- The text uses the example of a 60 degree angle to illustrate this concept.
- The sides included in the 60 degree angle are 55 and 65, and the opposite sides are 80 and 80.
- The text shows that since both pairs of sides are equal in length, the triangles are congruent.
- The text also mentions the need to check other angles in the triangles to make sure they are equal as well.
- The text mentions that this concept can be extended to the verification of other triangular relationships using different angles and sides.
- The text encourages the reader to practice and try to understand the concept by verifying the relationships in other triangles.

Test your understanding of triangle congruence and the relationship between angles in triangles with this quiz. Learn how to determine if triangles are congruent by comparing side lengths and included angles. Explore how to verify if angles opposite equal sides are also equal in triangles.
