Question

# Name the postulate, if possible, that makes the triangles congruent.

- SSS
- SAS
- ASA
- Not possible

Hint:

### In two triangles, if the three sides of one triangle are equal to the corresponding three sides (SSS) of the other triangle, then the two triangles are congruent by SSS rule.

## The correct answer is: SSS

### From the above diagram,

OE = OE (Common side for both triangles)

OL = OV ( given by notations in the diagram )

EL = EV ( given by notations in the diagram )

Here, the three sides of one triangle are equal to the corresponding three sides (SSS) of the other triangle .

So, the two triangles OEL and OEV are congruent by SSS rule.
