The flow chart proof with missing statements and reasons proves that if a line intersects two sides of a triangle and divides these sides proportionally, the line is parallel to the third side
Which reason can be used to fill in the numbered blank space?
Answer 1. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BAC
2. Corresponding Angles Postulate
1. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BAC
2. Corresponding Parts of Similar Triangles
1. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BCA
2. Alternate Exterior Theorem
1. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BCA
2. Corresponding Parts of Similar Triangles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If we can assume that the midsegement and the third side are parallel then : 1. ∡BDE ≅ ∡BAC 2. Corresponding Angles Postulate
