# Which congruence criterion do you use in the following?

(a) Given:AC = DF

AB = DE

BC = EF

So, ∆ ABC ≅ ∆ DEF

(b) Given: ZX = RP

RQ = ZY

∠PRQ = ∠XZY

So, ∆ PQR ≅ ∆ XYZ

(c) Given: ∠MLN = ∠FGH

∠NML = ∠GFH

ML = FG

So, ∆ LMN ≅ ∆ GFH

(d) Given: EB = DB

AE = BC

∠A = ∠C = 90°

∆ABE = ∆CDB

**Solution:**

(i) The congruence criterion to show that ∆ ABC ≅ ∆ DEF is Side Side Side (SSS) rule.

(ii) The congruence criterion to show that ∆ PQR ≅ ∆ XYZ is Side Angle Side (SAS) rule.

(iii) The congruence criterion to show that ∆ LMN ≅ ∆ GFH is Angle Side Angle (ASA) rule.

(iv) The congruence criterion to show that ∆ LMN ≅ ∆ GFH is the Right angle Hypotenuse Side (RHS) rule.
