## congruentIn the case of geometric figures, congruent means having exactly the same shape and size, i.e., differing only in their positions in space. Two congruent figures will coincide exactly when superimposed. In contrast, two figures are said to be similar if the figures cannot be superimposed without being scaled or reflected. ## Related category• GEOMETRY | |||||
