The second Congruence Theorem that we will go over is SAS (Side-Angle-Side). This means that there are two sides and an included angle that are respectively equal. Let's look at the diagram below:

We can write a congruence statement from the diagram above by stating what we know. We know that,

Since we know that two sides and the included angle are congruent to the other triangle

then we can conclude that:

then we can conclude that:

__Example__

Given the following triangles, write a congruence statement to show that the triangles are congruent:
