To be congruent they have to be exactly alike.  Same shape, same size.  Let's look at same size. 

 

The hypotenuse of one has to equal the hypotenuse of the other.  So     10b  =  b + 36 

Solve for b                                                                                                   9b  =  36   

                                                                                                                      b  =  4  

 

Same with that leg                                                                                        9c  =  c + 16  

Solve for c                                                                                                    8c  =  16  

                                                                                                                       c  =  2
