Karen is using an indirect method to prove that segment DE is not parallel to segment BC in the triangle ABC shown.
She starts with the assumption that segment DE is parallel to segment BC.
Which inequality will she use to contradict the assumption?
6:2 ≠ 7:10
6:8 ≠ 7:10
6:7 ≠ 2:7
6:2 ≠ 3:2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4if DE is parallel to BC then triangles ABC and ADE are similar and corresponding sides will be in same ratio ie AE: AC will be equal to AD: AB this should help
