SSS and SAS - Problem 3 3,499 views

In this problem we are looking at are these two triangles congruent and if so what’s the short-cut. So I’ve given you triangle ABC. So let’s look and see what we have.

We have side AB is congruent to side EF. We have side AC is congruent to side DF and we have angle A is not congruent to anything in the other triangle. So we have a problem here, we don’t have enough information that these two triangles are congruent. So all you have to do on this problem is say, 'cannot', remember that’s one word, 'be determined'.

So that way you’ll make your English teacher happy, because you noticed that is one word and you’ll make your geometry teacher happy because you got the right answer.
