**How to Check if the Given Triangles are Congruent with Given Triangles :**

Here we are going to see some example problems to check if the given triangles are congruent with given triangles.

**Question 1 :**

Consider the given pairs of triangles and say whether each pair is that of congruent triangles. If the triangles are congruent, say ‘how’; if they are not congruent say ‘why’ and also say if a small modification would make them congruent:

**Solution :**

In triangle ABC, and triangle PQR

AB = QP

BC = RQ

From the given information, the triangles are not congruent. If AC and RP were equal, then both the triangles will be congruent by using SSS criterion.

**Solution :**

In triangle ABD, in triangle BDC

AB = DC (S)

AD = BC (S)

DB = DB (S)

Hence the triangle ABD and BDC are congruent using the criterion SSS.

**Solution :**

In triangle TXP and PXZ

YX = ZX (S)

YP = PZ (S)

PX = PX (S)

Hence the triangles TXP and PXZ are congruent using the criterion SSS.

**Solution :**

In triangle ABO and ODC

AO = OC (S)

<ABO = <ODC (A)

<AOB = <DOC (A)

By using the criterion ASA triangle ABO and ODC are congruent.

**Solution :**

In triangle AOB, triangle ODC

BO = DO (S)

AO = OC (S)

<AOB = <ODC (A)

By using the criterion SAS the triangles are AOB and ODC.

**Solution :**

In triangle ABM and AMC

AB = AC (S)

<AMB = <AMC (A)

AM = AM (S)

Hence the triangles ABM and AMC are congruent.

**Question 2 :**

ΔABC and ΔDEF are two triangles in which AB = DF, ∠ACB = 70°, ∠ABC = 60°; ∠DEF = 70° and ∠EDF = 60°. Prove that the triangles are congruent

**Solution :**

AB = EF (S)

<ABC = <EDF (A)

<BCA = <DEF (A)

Hence the triangles are congruent.

Question 4 :

Find all the three angles of the ΔABC

<ACB = <ABC + <BAC

4x - 15 = 2x - 5 + x + 35

4x - 2x - x = 35 - 5 + 15

x = 45

4x - 15 = 4(45) - 15 = 165

2x - 5 = 2(45) - 5 = 85

x + 35 = 45 + 35 = 80

Hence the required angles are 165, 85 and 80.
