# Congruent Angles

### Congruent Angles have the same angle (in degrees or radians). That is all.

**These angles are congruent.**

They don't have to point in the same direction.

They don't have to be on similar sized lines.

Just the same angle.

Congruent - why such a funny word that basically means "equal"? Probably because they are only "equal" when laid on top of each other. Anyway it comes from Latin *congruere*, "to agree". So the angles "agree".
