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