Let’s decide if two figures are congruent.
The following diagrams describe how to decide using rigid transformations whether or not two figures are congruent.
All of these triangles are congruent. Sometimes we can take one figure to another with a translation. Shade the triangles that are images of triangle ABC under a translation.
For each of the following pairs of shapes, decide whether or not they are congruent. Explain your reasoning.
For each pair of shapes, decide whether or not Shape A is congruent to Shape B. Explain how you know.
A polygon has 8 sides: five of length 1, two of length 2, and one of length 3. All sides lie on grid lines. (It may be helpful to use graph paper when working on this problem.)
