CPCT stands for Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent is a statement on congruent trigonometry. It states that if two or more triangles are congruent, then all of their corresponding angles and sides are as well congruent.
What is CPCT?
Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles (CPCT) are equal. While dealing with the concepts related to triangles and solving questions, we usually make use of the abbreviation cpct in short words rather than full form.
Congruence can be predicted without actually measuring the sides and angles of a triangle. Different rules of congruency are as follows.
- SSS (Side-Side-Side)
- SAS (Side-Angle-Side)
- ASA (Angle-Side-Angle)
- AAS (Angle-Angle-Side)
- RHS (Right angle-Hypotenuse-Side)
