So, A is congruent to C because A and C are both congruent to B? Isn't that what you need to prove in the first place?

Well, isn't it self evident?

Anyway, I think I should yes ^^

Ok, here's another version :

We have the 3 geometric figures : A,B,C
With the information given: A congruent to B, B congruent to C

So, inversely, we will have :

B congruent to A, because A is congruent to B, so, its inverse must necessarely also be true, because if it wasn't we would a contradiction with the information given to us that A congruent B, but we know that it isn't the case, so the only option left is B is really congruent to A

C congruent to B
For the same reason has the above statement.

So, we have 3 geomtric figures congruent, because A is congruent to B, and having proved the inverse of B congruent C, that is, C congruent to B, we see that the two geometric figures(A and C) are also congruent to the same figure (B), and that...

A is congruent to C

What does equal mean in terms of geometric figures?

Well, sorry for my mistake in terms, I meant congruent,xD

hi Al-Allo

This seems to be a good way to prove this, but your proof is difficult for me to follow because I'm not clear which lines are in which shape.

Show that if a geometric figure is congruent to another geometric figure, which is in its turn congruent to a third geomtric figure, then the first geometric figure is congruent to the third.

We have the 3 geometric figures : A,B,C
With the information given: A congruent to B, B congruent to C

So, inversely, we will have :

B congruent to A, because A is congruent to B, so, its inverse must necessarely also be true, because if it wasn't we would a contradiction with the information given to us that A congruent B, but we know that it isn't the case, so the only option left is B is really congruent to A
