Also know, what does Cpcte mean?

Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Equal

what does Cpctc mean in geometry? corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent

In respect to this, what is Cpctc and example?

Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent It means that if two trangles are known to be congruent , then all corresponding angles/sides are also congruent. As an **example**, if 2 triangles are congruent by SSS, then we also know that the angles of 2 triangles are congruent.

What is the definition of congruent triangles?

**Congruent Triangles**. When two **triangles** are **congruent** they will have exactly the same three sides and exactly the same three angles. The equal sides and angles may not be in the same position (if there is a turn or a flip), but they are there.
