Side - Side - Side (S.S.S)

This is the first type of congruent triangles. It means that every side in the triangle is equal in measure to its corresponding side in the other triangle. This means that this two triangles are congruent.

Side - Angle - Side (S.A.S)

This is the second type of congruent triangles. It means that two sides are equal to their corresponding sides in the other triangle including angle equal in measure with its corresponding. This means that they are congruent.

Angle - Side - Angle (A.S.A)

This is the third type of congruent triangles. It means that two angles are equal in measure to their corresponding angles in the other triangle including a side equal in length with its corresponding. This means that they are congruent.

Right - Hypotenuse - Side (R.H.S)

This is the third type of congruent triangles. It only can be in the right angle triangle. The hypotenuse side is the longest side in the triangle.
