all pairs of corresponding parts (sides/angles) are congruent

New cards

5

congruent triangles

all 6 pairs of parts of a triangle are congruent

New cards

6

reflexive property

an angle or segment is congruent to itself

New cards

7

included angle

angle formed by 2 sides of a triangle

New cards

8

the common side between 2 angles of a triangle

New cards

9

Side Side Side Postulate

if 3 sides of a triangle are congruent to the corresponding 3 sides of a 2nd triangle then the triangles are congruent

New cards

10

Side Angle Side Postulate

if 2 sides and their included angle of a triangle are congruent to the corresponding 2 sides and their included angle of a 2nd triangle then the triangles are congruent

New cards

11

Angle Side Angle Postulate

if 2 angels and their included side of a triangle are congruent to the corresponding 2 angles and their included angle of a 2nd triangle then the triangles are congruent

27

Angle classification

acute, right, and obtuse

New cards

28

acute

A triangle which has 3 acute angles

New cards

29

right

New cards

31

triangle sum theorem

the measure of the 3 interior angles of a triangle sum to 180 degrees

New cards

32

No choice theorem

if 2 angles form one triangle congruent to the 2 angles in the second triangle the pair of angles are congruent

New cards

33

Angle Angle Side Postulate

if two angles and one side form a triangle congruent to the two angels and side in the second triangle the triangles are congruent

New cards

34

Hypotenuse

side opposite the right angle in a right triangle

New cards

35

legs of a right triangle

two side in a right triangle that form the right angle

New cards

36

median

a segment drawn from the vortex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side

New cards

37

altitude

a segment drawn from the vortex of a triangle perpendicular to the opposite side (extend if necessary)

New cards

38

Angle side

if two sides in a triangle are congruent then the angles opposite those sides are also congruent

if two angles in a triangle are congruent then the sides opposite them are congrurent

New cards

39

Angle side for Scalene triangles

if two sides of a triangle are not congruent, then the angles opposite then are also not congruent and the larger angle is opposite the larger side

if two angles of a triangle are not congruent, then the sides opposite of them are also not congruent and the longer side is opposite if the larger angle

New cards

40

Hypotenuse leg Postulate

if the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding hypotenuse and leg of a 2nd right triangle then the triangles are congruent

New cards

41

auxiliary lines postulate

2 points that make a segment
