2. ganeshie8

start wid one vertex

3. ganeshie8

|dw:1347560412800:dw|

4. ganeshie8

as you go from b to z, its 5ft

5. ganeshie8

|dw:1347560494402:dw|

6. ganeshie8

from z to y, its 3ft so its, \(\triangle bzy\)

7. ganeshie8

can you trace the second triangle same way ?

|dw:1347560633410:dw|

could you explain how to get the answer?

10. ganeshie8

|dw:1347560977761:dw|

11. ganeshie8

yea if you start from z its zyb right ?

12. ganeshie8

for the seconf triangle, start from a corresponding vertex for z, which is o

alright so zyb and owr?

14. ganeshie8

Perfect !

15. ganeshie8

and they are congruent which postulate ?

what lol sorry I haven't been taught any of this material

17. ganeshie8

okay, SSS means, Side Side Side all Sides are congruent

18. ganeshie8

|dw:1347561236893:dw|

19. ganeshie8

all corresponding sides between the two triangles are equal , right ?

yes and congruent means equal

21. ganeshie8

yep thats right ! so its SSS congruence, all corresponding sides are congruent

22. ganeshie8

if all 3 corresponding sides are congruent, then triangles are congruent. thats SSS congruence postulate.

so it would be c?

24. ganeshie8

\(\triangle ZYB \cong \triangle OWR\) by SSS yea its C

thank you so much!

26. ganeshie8

np :)
