# How do you know if a triangle is HL?

Space and AstronomyIn right triangles, if two legs are congruent and if the two hypotenuses are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. This is known as the **hypotenuse leg theorem**.

## How do you tell if a triangle is SSS SAS ASA AAS or HL?

Video quote: *If we've got that situation where we've got three pairs of congruent sides then those two triangles are going to be congruent. So this is called side-side-side congruency.*

## What is HL in triangle?

In right triangles, if two legs are congruent and if the two hypotenuses are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. This is known as the **hypotenuse leg theorem**.

## How do you know if HL is congruent?

Video quote: *For why two triangles are going to be congruent if their hypotenuse. If each of their hypotenuse is have the same length is that hypotenuse a pot.*

## How do you find HL in geometry?

Video quote: *So if you can prove that the angles are right angles the hypotenuse is the same and one of the legs are congruent then you can use the HL postulate to prove that two triangles are congruent.*

## How do you get a HL proof?

This is represented as: **Hypotenuse² = Base² + Perpendicular²**. According to the HL Congruence rule, the hypotenuse and one leg are the elements that are used to test the congruence of triangles. The HL Congruence rule is similar to the SAS (Side-Angle-Side) postulate.

## What is LL ha la HL in geometry?

So we’ve learned about the LA, or leg-acute, theorem and the LL, or leg-leg, theorem. **The HA theorem is the hypotenuse-angle theorem, and the HL theorem is the hypotenuse-leg theorem**.

## What is the acute angle?

Acute angles measure **less than 90 degrees**. Right angles measure 90 degrees. Obtuse angles measure more than 90 degrees.

## How about if a leg and an acute angle are given?

Leg Acute (LA) Theorem

The LA Theorem states: **If the leg and an acute angle of one right triangle are both congruent to the corresponding leg and acute angle of another right triangle, the two triangles are congruent**.

## What is the ASA theorem?

The Angle-Side-Angle Postulate (ASA) states that **if two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent**.

## Is AAS and ASA same?

**AAS congruence criterion is same as ASA congruence criterion**.

## How do you prove ASA in geometry?

Angle-side-angle is a rule used to prove whether a given set of triangles are congruent. The ASA rule states that: **If two angles and the included side of one triangle are equal to two angles and included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent**.

## Is aas a postulate or theorem?

A quick thing to note is that **AAS is a theorem, not a postulate**. Since we use the Angle Sum Theorem to prove it, it’s no longer a postulate because it isn’t assumed anymore. Basically, the Angle Sum Theorem for triangles elevates its rank from postulate to theorem.

## How do you know if a triangle is AAS?

AAS stands for “angle, angle, side” and means that we have two triangles where we know two angles and the non-included side are equal. **If two angles and the non-included side of one triangle are equal to the corresponding angles and side of another triangle, the triangles are congruent**.

## Is Asa a postulate?

Postulate 12.3: **The ASA Postulate**. If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

## Is AAA a postulate?

(This is sometimes referred to as the AAA Postulate—which is **true in all respects, but two angles are entirely sufficient**.) The postulate can be better understood by working in reverse order. The two triangles on grids A and B are similar, by a 1.5 dilation from A to B.

## Can HL prove triangles congruent?

The Hypotenuse-Leg (HL) Triangle Congruence Theorem is a special case that allows you to show that two right triangles are congruent. **If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent**.

## Can HL be proven congruent?

**Once triangles are proven congruent, the corresponding leftover “parts” that were not used in SSS, SAS, ASA, AAS and HL, are also congruent**. Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent. The following ordered combinations of the congruent triangle facts will NOT be sufficient to prove triangles congruent.

## What is the AA postulate in geometry?

In two triangles, **if two pairs of corresponding angles are congruent, then the triangles are similar** . (Note that if two pairs of corresponding angles are congruent, then it can be shown that all three pairs of corresponding angles are congruent, by the Angle Sum Theorem.)

## What does a AA similarity look like?

AA Similarity Postulate: **If two angles in one triangle are congruent to two angles in another triangle, the two triangles are similar**. The AA Similarity Postulate is a shortcut for showing that two triangles are similar.

## What does AA similarity claim about triangles?

The AA criterion for triangle similarity states that **if two triangles have two pairs of congruent angles, then the triangles are similar**.

## What is aa similarity example?

AA similarity : **If two angles of one triangle are respectively equal to two angles of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar**. Paragraph proof : Let ΔABC and ΔDEF be two triangles such that ∠A = ∠D and ∠B = ∠E. Thus the two triangles are equiangular and hence they are similar by AA.

## Is AA a proof?

Video quote: *Now there's another postulate. That's similar but a lot more useful and since that it's more commonly used. Let's say if we have the same three triangles. You could also prove that two triangles are*
