    AA ( Angle Angle Similarity Postulate ) This states that if two corresponding angles in 2 triangles are congruent, than the two triangles are similar.
    AAA ( Angle Angle Angle Similarity Theorem) This states that if all angles in 2 triangles are congruent, than the two triangles are similar.
    ASA ( Angle Side Angle Similarity Theorem) This sates that if two angles and its corresponding side are congruent, than the two triangles are similar.
    AAS ( Angle Angle Side Similarity Theorem) This states that if two angles and than a side is congruent, than the two triangles are similar.

    These are important and you can apply them two triangles and their sides. See if two triangles are similar, they can be written in proportion. This can help you do lots of things such as find sides or show relationships among triangles.
