# How to prove that the two line segments are equal, if possible [closed]

There are two triangles. The first triangle has 3 vertices called ABC, while the second one has DEF. If vertex A = vertex D, vertex B = vertex E, and vertex C = vertex F. Is there any way that I can prove that line segment AB is equal to line segment DE?

I apologize in advance if the problem is incomprehensible, I just do not really know how to describe the problem that I am facing currently. kinda a representation of the triangle given

• What do you mean by vertex $A$=vertex $B$ and so on$??$ 2 days ago
• The point or vertex A on the first triangle is equal to the vertex D on the second triangle. I was wondering if those points are equal, then the line segments created using those points are also equal. 2 days ago
• You're saying that two points are equal (apparently dimensionally). But that can't be true, as points don't have dimensions. The points can only superimpose themselves on each other. 2 days ago
• Write the full question. 2 days ago
• I added the triangle picture, I hope it will help visualize the problem more clearly, as my wordings are kind of bad. 2 days ago

In your image, you say that both triangles are equal in size. Then it follows that $$AB=DE$$.
Also, $$SSS$$ is side-side-side criterion, which means that the two triangles are congruent if all of their corresponding sides are equal. So, if you're using $$SSS$$ then you actually already had $$AB=DE$$. So you can't use this either.
The criterion that can be used here is $$SAS$$. If in your triangle it is given that $$AC=DF$$ and $$BC=EF$$ and $$\angle ACB=\angle DFE$$ then by corresponding parts of congruent triangles you can say that $$AB=DE$$.
