# Corresponding Elements

## Corresponding Elements

Corresponding geometric objects of similar and congruent figures are objects that have the same relative position with respect to these figures.

• Corresponding geometric objects of similar and congruentfigures are objects that correspond in these figures or that have the same relative position.
• Corresponding elements of equal ratios are numbers that have identical positions in these ratios, that is, either the numerator or the denominator.

### Example

In an orthogonal symmetry with axis d, sides AB and A’B’ of the triangles are corresponding elements.
