 Question 618092: Assume you are given two right triangles with congruent hypotenuses and wish to show that they are congruent. Which of the following denote a congruence theorem for right triangles that may be of use? for apex Answer by solver91311(16897)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The fact that the triangles are right and the two hypotenuses are congruent is insufficient to prove the triangles congruent.
