FROG is a trapezoid. Is (angle)RGO ~with= (angle)FRG? Is (angle)GOF ~with= (angle)RFO? Why is (triangle)GOS ~ (triangle)RFS? t =?, s =?

    is t referring the the angle or the side?

    Been a while since i've one geometry. But for the first 2 questions I would answer yes. They are parallel lines cut by a transversal, so alternate interior angles are = (I think that's what they're called anyway)

    That would make the triangles similar by AAA (isn't that one of those theroms?)

    then you can use ratios to find the lengths of t and s. Just make sure you use the sides that are similar to each other

    Aren't angles across from each other called vertical angles. So by alternate interior angles and vertical angles, you'd have all 3

    You should have all 3. The 2 that were questions 1 and 2. then the vertical angles

    1) and 2) sim ,because alternate interior angles
