Congruence of triangle

Two figures are congruent if they have the same shape and size. Therefore,congruent objects are exact copies of one another. For example,to check if the two shapes given below are congruent,you can superimpose them and if they cover each other completely,they are congruent.

To check if two line segments are congruent,you just need to check their lengths and if lengths are equal then they are congruent.
To check if two angles are congruent,you just need to check their measures and if the measures are equal then they are congruent.
Extending this concept to triangles,If two triangles are congruent,then they must be copies of each other and when superposed they cover exactly each other.
