Compare and Contrast Describe the difference between saying that two segments are congruent and saying that two segments have equal length. When would you use each phrase?

In geometry congruent means that the figures have the same size and shape, the corresponding parts being equal each to each.
Equal means the two figures or quantities are identical.

congruence is a geometrical property, and includes all angles, sides, etc.
length is just a number in one dimension
