Angle Side Angle Postulate

Proving Congruent Triangles With ASA

Example of Angle Side Angle Proof

    $$ \triangle $$ABC $$ \cong $$ $$ \triangle $$XYZ
  • Two angles and the included side are congruent
    • $$ \angle $$CAB = $$ \angle $$ZXY (angle)
    • AB = XY  (side)
    • $$ \angle $$ACB = $$ \angle $$XZY  (angle)
  • Therefore, by the Angle Side Angle postulate (ASA), the triangles are congruent.

we can use the Angle Side Angle postulate to prove that the opposite sides and the opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent

Proof 4) Given: ABCD is a parallelogram.
Prove the opposite sides and the opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent.
Remember the definition of parallelogram: a quadrilateral that has two pairs of opposite parallel sides.
