In the app below, the

**three segments shown on the right**are congruent to the**three sides**of the**given triangle**.## Can you reposition the three segments (shown on the right) to create a triangle congruent to the given triangle shown? Try to do so! Try building this triangle on top of the colored one given.

## Try it again! Can you reposition the three segments (shown on the right) to create a triangle congruent to the given triangle shown? Try to do so! ry building this triangle on top of the colored one given.

## Move the vertices (corners) of the colored triangle on the left to create any triangle you'd like. Try to create a triangle congruent to this one using the 3 given segments. ry building this triangle on top of the colored one given.

**What do you think? **
If three sides of one triangle congruent to three sides of another triangle, are those triangles guaranteed to be congruent to each other (i.e. perfect clones)?
If "yes", explain why. If "no", explain why not.
