State whether the figures are congruent or not congruent.
00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:13.340
First we have to think what does congruent mean.
00:00:15.350 --> 00:00:20.510
Congruent figures are the same size and the same shape.
00:00:22.380 --> 00:00:28.490
Our first triangle has side lengths three, four, and five.
00:00:29.920 --> 00:00:36.580
Our second triangle has side lengths three, four, and five.
00:00:38.740 --> 00:00:40.880
Both figures are triangles.
00:00:41.410 --> 00:00:43.730
And they’re the exact same size.
00:00:46.080 --> 00:00:49.650
One of these figures is faced in a different direction.
00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:54.350
But that doesn’t have any effect on whether it’s congruent or not.
00:00:54.790 --> 00:00:59.580
To be congruent, it only has to be the same size and the same shape.
00:00:59.700 --> 00:01:02.520
It doesn’t have to be facing the same direction.
00:01:04.560 --> 00:01:08.600
So we say yes, these figures are congruent.
