I'm a bit confused on what the difference is between congruent and parallel. If a line is congruent (same) wouldn't that also make them parallel? like a square has all sides that are parallel but they are also congruent because they are all the same right... am I making any sense?

  • math -

    take a kite for example there are 2 paris of congruent lengths, but they are obviously not parallel. hope that helps

  • math -

    two lines can be both congruent and parallel ... but most the time this isn't the case

    "_ |": congruent [I guess] but not parallel
    "| |" both congruent and parallel
