question
Rowena is proving that AD ≅ EB. Which statement does the ♣ represent in her proof?
A. ΔACD ≅ ΔECB
question
Complete the paragraph proof. We are given AB ≅ AE and BC ≅ DE. This means ABE is an isosceles triangle. Base angles in an isosceles triangle are congruent based on the isosceles triangle theorem, so ∠ABE ≅ ∠AEB. We can then determine △ABC ≅ △AED by . Because of CPCTC, segment AC is congruent to segment . Triangle ACD is an isosceles triangle based on the definition of isosceles triangle. Therefore, based on the isosceles triangle theorem, ∠ACD ≅ ∠ADC.
question
Mikal is proving that AE ≅ CE . Which reason does the ♣ represent in Mikal's proof?
D. AAS
question
Complete the paragraph proof: It is given that ∠TUW ≅ ∠SRW and RS ≅ TU. Because ∠RWS and ∠UWT are vertical angles and vertical angles are congruent, ∠RWS ≅ ∠UWT. Then, by AAS, △TUW ≅ △SRW. Because CPCTC, SW ≅ TW and WU ≅ RW. Because of the definition of congruence, SW = TW and WU = RW. If we add those equations together, SW + WU = TW + RW. Because of segment addition, SW + WU = SU and TW + RW = TR. Then by substitution, SU = TR. If segments are equal, then they are congruent, so SU ≅ TR. Because of , △TRS ≅ △SUT, and because of , ∠RST ≅ ∠UTS.
