# What are the differences between similar triangles and congruent triangles?

Congruent figures are the same shape and size. Similar figures are the same shape, but not necessarily the same size. Note that if two figures are congruent, then they are also similar, but not vice-versa.

Similar triangles have corresponding angles that are congruent, and their corresponding sides are in proportion. Congruent triangles have exactly the same size and shape, meaning all corresponding angles and sides are equal.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
