can one tell if two triangles are congruent if they are given only the angles and all of them are congruent to one another? (Example below)
triangle ABC and triangle DEF with angle A congruent to angle D, angle B congruent to angle E, and angle C congruent to angle F

no, they are not congruent, but they are similar.
e.g. a Slide projected on the wall has an image where the corresponding angles of the shapes would be equal, but certainly the shapes would not have the same size.

ok thank you so much. that is what i thought but i was thinking too much into it...again :)

Can some one please check these for me.Thanks Angle DEF is similar to Angle HJK and the scale factor of angle DEF to anle HJK IS 5/2. If EF =15 FIND JK Here is what I came up with Am I correct 5/2 = EF/JK 5/2 =15/JK 5(JK)=30 JK=30/5 …
