My geometry book doesn't explain things very well so..... yeah I'm pretty sure that this has a simple answer, but my geometry book words it pretty weird.

If triangle RST is congruent to triangle MNP and RT = MP, TS = PN, and angle T = angle P, give the corresponding parts; the equal parts.

Don't understand your question. – GWu Apr 12 '11 at 17:54

You already have two sides and the angle between them the same, so you just need to match up the other side and two angles.

  • SR = NM
  • angle S = angle N
  • angle R = angle M
