    • Title

      The title is a reference to the Side-Angle-Side Congruence Theorem of geometry, which states that, given two triangles, if two sides and the angle between them in one triangle are equal in value to their corresponding parts in the other triangle, then both triangles are congruent and all other sides and angles are equal in value as well.
