2.2 Proofs Involving
Congruence
Slide 4-1
Congruent Segments
Two segments that have the same length are called
congruent segments. The symbol ≅ means
congruent.
We mark congruent segments in a figure with
exactly the same number of tick marks.
Slide 4-2
Definition
Two angles that have the same measure are called
congruent angles. Recall that the symbol ≅ means
congruent.
We mark congruent angles with exactly the same
number of arcs, as shown in the figures
below.
Slide 4-3
Definitions
Congruent figures have the exact same shape and
size. All the figures below are congruent. As shown
below, a flip, rotate (turn), or slide does not affect
whether figures are congruent because they still
have the same shape and size.
Slide 4-4
Definitions
When figures are congruent, their corresponding
sides are congruent, and their corresponding angles
are congruent.
Corresponding Angles
& Sides
AB  RS
A   R
B   S
C   T
BC  ST
CA  TR
Slide 4-5
Example
Naming Congruent Parts
For the two figures, we
are given that ABCD ≅ TRQS.
Solution
The figures help, but having the congruent angles
listed in the corresponding order is all that is
needed. ABCD ≅ TRQS
Angles: A  T , B  R, C  Q, D  S
Sides: AB  TR, BC  RQ, CD  QS , DA  ST

by equal number of tick marks

Statements
Reasons
1. AB  BC, EB  BD
1. Given

Postulate 4.4-1 Angle-Side-Angle (ASA)
Postulate
Slide 4-11
Example
Identifying ASA
Multiple Choice: Choose two triangles that are
congruent by the ASA Postulate. Explain why.
a.
b.
c.
d.
Solution
Choices b and d are congruent by ASA because for
these two triangles, the sides marked congruent are
the included sides of the two congruent angles.
