We have 2 rt triangles:

X1 = hor = X2 = 2. The hor. sides are

equal.

Y1 = ver = y2 = 4. The ver. sides are

equal.

Z1 = hyp. = Z2 = 4.5. The hyp are equal.

The corresponding sides are equal.

Therefore, the triangles are congruent.

CALCULATIONS:

Triangle # 1, PQR.

Y1 = 3 -(-1) = 3 + 1 = 4.

X1 = 0-(-2) = 2.

Triangle # 2,STU.

Y2 = 2 - (-2) = 2 + 2 = 4.

X2 = 1 - (-1) = 1 + 1 = 2.
