Geometry

Can you please explain the Side-Side- Side Postulate, The Side-Angle-Side Postulate, and The Angle-Side-Angle Postulate.
Thank you very much

The side-side-side postulate is when two triangles are congruent with one another. (all sides are the same). The Side Angle Side postulate (SAS) states that if two side and the included angle of one trianle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then these two sides are congruent. The angle-side-angle postulate states that if two angles and the included side of on triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then these two triangles are congruent.

thank you very much

You are very welcome. :)
