Review the triangle congruence conjectures from the Math Notes box from Lesson 6.1.3.

What do you know about isosceles triangles?

The triangles should be congruent by SSS ≅, but 80° ≠ 50° and in congruent triangles all angles are equal as well.

The triangles should be congruent by SAS ≅, but 80° ≠ 90° and 40° ≠ 50° and in congruent triangles all angles are equal as well.

The triangles should be congruent by SAS ≅, but 10 ≠ 12 and in congruent triangles all sides are congruent as well.
