Step 1: Recall the conditions of the congruent figures

NOTE: Congruent shapes have the same size and shape. In congruent

shapes, all pairs of corresponding angles are congruent and all pairs of

corresponding sides are congruent.

Step 2: Make sure that the corresponding angles are congruent or not.

NOTE: Look at the angles. There is no angle in the left shape

congruent to *X* in the right shape. So, the shapes are not congruent.

\angle K ≅ \angle W,

\angle J ≅ \angle V

\angle X \neq \angle W

\angle I \neq \angle Y

Step 3: Look at the sides. Check all the corresponding sides are congruent or not.

* * EXAMPLE: WV ≅ IH , and VY ≅ IJ, are we know

Step 4: Conclude that the given figures are congruent if shapes have the same size and shape.

NOTE: Corresponding angles and sides are congruent, the

shapes are congruent.
