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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've done this many times so I'm very familiar with all the triangle congruence properties

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

Emily778

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

jim_thompson5910

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

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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you 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

Emily778

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, asa or not enough information?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not enough info SSA always leads to "not enough info"

Emily778

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

jim_thompson5910

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

Emily778

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have 2 parallel lines and the angles are on the INSIDE of them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's never a good reason in geometry

jim_thompson5910

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know it's a bad response but I'm confused D:

jim_thompson5910

Emily778

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

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

Emily778

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh. 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1R , 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)

Emily778

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

jim_thompson5910

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

jim_thompson5910

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A, B, and C are the vertices of one triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since these two triangles have 2 completely different sets of angles, they cannot be congruent

Emily778

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

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they're 2 completely different triangles, so they aren't congruent
