Expert Answer:

Dear student,
 
Congruent triangles are triangles that have the same size and shape. CPCT means that correponding parts of congruent triangles are equal.
So, if triangles ABC and PQR are congruent, then
angle A = angle P
angle B = angle Q
angle C = angle R
AB = PQ
BC = QR
CA = RP
 
We hope that clarifies your query.
