# In Fig. 6.52, DE = IH, EG = FI and ∠ E = ∠ I. Is ∆DEF ≅ ∆HIG? If yes, by which congruence criterion?

**Solution:**

Given, the figure represents two __triangles__ DEF and GHI.

Also, DE = IH, EG = FI

∠E = ∠I

We have to determine if the triangles DEF and HIG are __congruent__ or not.

Given, EG = FI

Adding GF on both sides,

EG + GF = FI + GF

From the figure,

EG + GF = EF

FI + GF = IG

So, EF = IG

Considering triangles DEF and HIG,

Given, DE = IH

Also, EF = IG

∠E = ∠I

The __SAS criterion__ states that If two sides of one triangle are respectively proportional to two __corresponding sides__ of another, and if the included angles are equal, then the two triangles are congruent.

By SAS rule, ∆DEF ≅ ∆HIG
