**Geometry 1 Unit 4Congruent Triangles**Casa Grande Union High School Fall 2008**Geometry 1Unit 4**4.1 Triangles and Angles**Equilateral- all 3 sides are congruent**Isosceles- at least 2 sides are congruent Scalene- No sides congruent Classifying Triangles by Sides**Classifying Triangles by Angles**Acute Triangle- All angles are less than 90° Obtuse Triangle- 1 angle greater than 90 ° Right Triangle- 1 angle measuring 90°**Classifying Triangles**• Example 1 • Name each triangle by its sides and angles A. B. C.**A**C B Parts of triangles • Vertex (plural vertices) • The points joining the sides of a triangle • Adjacent sides • Sides sharing a common vertex • Side AB is adjacent to side BC**Exterior angle**A Interior angle C B • Interior angle • Angle on the inside of a triangle • Exterior angle • Angle outside the triangle that is formed by extending one side**Triangle Sum Theorem**• The sum of the three interior angles of a triangle is 180º**B**1 A C • Exterior Angle Theorem • The measure of the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two nonadjacent interior angles. • Example: m∠1=m∠A+ m∠B**Example 2**Find the measure of each angle. 2x + 10 x x + 2**B**A C D Example 3 Given that ∠ A is 50º and ∠B is 34º, what is the measure of ∠BCD? What is the measure of ∠ACB?**Hypotenuse**Legs Right triangle vocabulary • Legs • Sides that form the right angle • Hypotenuse • Side opposite the right angle**Corollary to the Triangle Sum Theorem**• The acute angles of a right triangle are complementary. m∠A+ m∠B = 90°**13**12 5 Example 4 A. Given the following triangle, what is the length of the hypotenuse? B. What are the length of the legs? C. If one of the acute angle measures is 32°, what is the other acute angle’s measurement?**Legs**• The two congruent sides of an isosceles triangle. • Base • The noncongruent side of an isosceles triangle. • Base Angles • The two angles that contain the base of an isosceles triangle. • Vertex Angle • The noncongruent angle in an isosceles triangle.**Vertex Angle**Legs Base Angles Isosceles triangle vocabulary Base**A**15 75º B C 7 Example 5 A. Given the following isosceles triangle, what is the measurement of segment AC? B. What is the measurement of angle A?**80°**53° Example 6 Find the missing measures**Example 7**Given: ∆ABC with mC = 90° Prove: mA + mB = 90°**Geometry 1Unit 4**4.2 Congruence and Triangles**Congruent Figures**• Congruent Figures • Figures are congruent if corresponding sides and angles have equal measures. • Corresponding Angles of Congruent Figures • When two figures are congruent, the angles that are in corresponding positions are congruent. • Corresponding Sides of Congruent Figures • When two figures are congruent, the sides that are in corresponding positions are congruent.**B**Q A P C R Congruent Figures • For the triangles below, ∆ABC ≅ ∆PQR • The notation shows congruence and correspondence. • When writing congruence statements, be sure to list corresponding angles in the same order.**Example 1**S E V D F T Complete the congruence statement for the two given triangles: DEF What side corresponds with DE?
