Which is the hypotenuse-leg theorem?
A. If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are similar to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
B. If the hypotenuse is congruent to the corresponding part of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
C. If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are equilateral.
D. If the hypotenuse and one leg of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
