## CHAD159753 3 years ago Matthew is constructing a triangle TRS congruent to triangle UVW. First, he marked a point T. With the length of UW as the width of the compass, he drew an arc from point T and marked a point on the arc as S. With the length of half of UV as the width of the compass, he drew an arc from point T. Which statement about the arc drawn in the last step is true? It is correct because the use of compass preserves the congruency in angle measure of angle RTS and angle VUW. It is incorrect because TS will not be congruent to UW because a ruler was not used to make the line segment. It is

What's that last part? It is...

2. CHAD159753

It is correct because the use of compass preserves the congruency in angle measure of angle RTS and angle VUW. It is incorrect because TS will not be congruent to UW because a ruler was not used to make the line segment. It is incorrect because the width of the compass should be equal to UV. It is correct because it can be used to make side TR congruent to side UV.

sorry lol those are the answers

4. rebeccaskell94

I think the answer is A bc I like A, although C might be in..no wait B...for Becca. But then that leaves D...

5. CHAD159753

So your saying its ether A B C or D?

6. MichaelaRose

When in doubt, choose C! That's the most common correct answer choice..

7. rebeccaskell94

xD yes Chad. Can I have my medal now ? XD jkjk

8. ParthKohli

It is incorrect because the width of the compass should be equal to UV.

9. ParthKohli

How can two triangles be congruent when one length is half the length of the corresponding side? o.O

10. ParthKohli

@CHAD159753 Moi medal xP

11. CHAD159753

Lol I needa answer xD

12. ParthKohli

Third lol

13. ParthKohli

C. is the answer ;)

14. CHAD159753

yu sure?

15. ParthKohli

101%

16. ParthKohli

Michaela, you googled it and copied from a previous post lol

17. CHAD159753

is that good enough? lol

18. ParthKohli

Yes... c

19. CHAD159753

So who gets the medal tho?
