Expert Answer:

RHS congruence criterion:

If under a correspondence, the hypotenuse and one side of a right angled triangle are respectively equal to the hypotenuse and one side of another right angled triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

In the above figure,

A = P = 90o ,

Hypotenuse BC = hypotenuse QR = 5 cm and

Side AB = side PQ = 3.5 cm

So, ABC PQR (By RHS congruence rule).
