with "Side Angle Side", you have 2 sides and an included angle pic: dw:1354651195503:dw with "Side Side Side", you have 3 sides pic: dw:1354651237390:dw

thankyou! that helped a lot! :) can you help me with more? My grade went down because of this thing. :(

ASA SSS SAS not enough information
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
which one would it be?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so using the info i gave above, which one are you thinking?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you have 3 corresponding sides equal > SSS

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you sure? I need to get all of these right. No "I think"

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I'm very sure

I've done this many times so I'm very familiar with all the triangle congruence properties
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
would this be sas or asa?

 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
notice this dw:1354653246131:dw so those two sides (which form the first S) are congruent
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
is the second one i just posted sas?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the other one, you have 2 sides and an angle (angle is between the two sides)
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I'm really confused with this one. :/
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you CANNOT use SSA because there's no one unique triangle that SSA makes so there are no guarantees that those two triangles are congruent if you use SSA
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so, asa or not enough information?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
not enough info SSA always leads to "not enough info"
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the options were asa, sss, sas, and no enough info. not ssa
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i know, that's because SSA isn't a valid congruence property
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I'm guessing this one is ASA?

I'm guessing vertical?

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no, vertical angles look like this dw:1354653660952:dw
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they look the same? :/

you have 2 parallel lines and the angles are on the INSIDE of them
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
that's never a good reason in geometry
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
using "they look the same" is always a bad response because the drawing may not be to scale or it may be drawn poorly
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no it says "<a parallel <c"

I know it's a bad response but I'm confused D:

angles can't be parallel...so something is off
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh wait.. does the = sign with the swirly thing on top mean congruent? xD

okay, do you get it now?

that's fine, btw, to say "parallel" you type 
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah i already know the answer
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what is it? And I wrote that down so I remember and don't act stupid :D
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it's alternate interior angles notice how they're on the inside of the parallel lines
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh. I was paying more attention on the angles of them than where the line was. :) thanks. And can you help me on the last 2 too? :D

which one did you miss
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the first one. Sad thing is I thought I really had it. it wasn't one you helped me on.
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
can you help me on other ones? :D five questions?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
same type of problem though right?
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
R , S, and T are the vertices of one triangle. E, F, and D are the vertices of another triangle. mR = 60, mS = 80, mF = 60, mD = 40, RS = 4, and EF = 4. Are the two triangles congruent? If yes, explain and tell which segment is congruent to RT . (1 point)
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, by ASA; yes, by AAS; yes, by SAS; No, the two triangles are not congruent.

this is what we're given dw:1354655142386:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
we can find this out dw:1354655272312:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so if you flip the second triangle you get this dw:1354655318737:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so we can use ASA angle S = angle E (A) RS = FE (S) angle R = angle F (A)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no, ASA and what do you mean by ed?
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
That's what it says..Nevermind. The only one with ASA is FD

you have to look at my last drawing
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
A, B, and C are the vertices of one triangle. D, E, and F are the vertices of another triangle. m∠A = 50, m∠B = 10, m∠E = 40, m∠F = 30, AB = 6, and DE = 6. Are the two triangles congruent If yes, explain why and tell which segment is congruent to AC . (1 point)
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, by SAS; yes, by ASA; yes, by AAS; No, the two triangles are not congruent.

I'm sure I could do these if I tried, but I really wanna get these done. :/

give it a shot, try drawing it out like i did it

since these two triangles have 2 completely different sets of angles, they cannot be congruent
 one year ago

Emily778Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so, it would be the last one?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
they're 2 completely different triangles, so they aren't congruent

not sure how that matters or how that is relevent...

And I have like almost 20 overdue assignments in each subject. I will do it when i get all on track. I usually don't cheat. But I feel it's the only way, I will get things done. And if that's what I have to do, than I will do it.

Well, I know it's not relevant, but i'm curious. :I

Can you at least show me how to do the last one I posted. I actually am confused with that one.
