In the previous segment, we saw when two triangles are congruent. In this segment of the
chapter of ‘Congruence of Triangles’, we will see the SSS conditions for congruence.
What is the SSS (Side – Side – Side) congruence condition?
SSS congruence condition says that if 3 sides of a triangle are respectively equal to the three sides of another triangle, the triangles will be congruent.
Consider two triangles, △ABC and △PQR.
AB = PQ = 3 units BC = QR = 5 units AC = PR = 7 units
Thus, these two triangles are congruent as all the three sides of the triangles are equal.
△ABC ≅ △PQR.
Can two triangles be determined congruent using AAA (Angle – Angle – Angle) condition?
