In ΔABC, ∠A = 30°, ∠B = 40° and ∠C = 110°

In ΔPQR, ∠P = 30°, ∠Q = 40° and ∠R = 110°

A student says that ΔABC ≅ ΔPQR by AAA congruence criterion. Is he justified? Why or why not?

#### Solution

No. This property represents that these triangles have their respective angles of equal measure. However, this gives no information about their sides. The sides of these triangles have a ratio somewhat different than 1:1. Therefore, AAA property does not prove the two triangles congruent.
