1. The whole is the sum of it's parts

2. Addition - If two equals are added the sums are equal.

3. Subtraction - If two equals are subtracted the differences are equal.

4. Substitution - quantities equal to each other or the same quantity may be substituted for each other.

5. Side Angle Side - Two triangles are congruent if two sides and the included angle of one are equal (or congruent) to two sides and the included angle of the other.

6. Angle Side Angle - Two triangles are congruent if a side and the adjacent angles of one are equal (or congruent), respectively, to a side and the adjacent angles of the other.

7. Side Side Side - Two triangles are congruent if three sides of one are equal (or congruent) to three sides of the other.

8. CPCTC - Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles Are Congruent. This is the simple idea that if two triangles are proven congruent, then corresponding parts (sides and angles) of those triangles must also be congruent (or equal in measure).

9. Components of equal angles are equal

10. Supplements of equal angles are equal

11. Exterior Angles Theorem - The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle will always be the sum of the measures of its two remote interior angles. Furthermore, its measure will be greater than either of its two remote interior angles.

12. When parallel lines are cut by transversals, alternate interior angles are equal and corresponding angles are equal.

13. The sum of the measures of all three angles of a triangle is always 180 degrees.

14. An exterior angle of a triangle is the sum of its remote interior angles. As a result, an exterior anglemust also be greater in measure than either of its two remote interior angles.

15. Lines will be parallel if any pair of corresponding angles are equal. 

16. Lines will be parallel if any pair of alternate interior angles are equal.

17. Angle Angle Side - If two angles and a side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and a side of another triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.

18. Hypotenuse Leg - If the hypotenuse and leg of one right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another, then the two right triangles are congruent.
