Question

# Why is SSA not a valid method for proving that triangles are congruent?

Hint:

### Sides could be located in different parts of triangles.

## The correct answer is: the triangles must be of the same length, shape and size

### Complete step by step solution:

SSA is not possible since the sides could be located in two different parts of the

triangles and not the corresponding sides of two triangles. There is chance that the

size and shape would be different for both triangles and for triangles to be congruent,

the triangles must be of the same length, shape and size.
