## KrystaRenee Someone mind helping me with this proof? Given: <A is congruent to <C BD bisects <ABC Prove: D is the midpoint of AC Statements BD bisects <? <ABD is congruent to <CBD <A is congruent to <C BD is congruent to ? △ABD is congruent to △CBD AD is congruent to ? D is the midpoint of AC Reasons Given Definition of ? bisector ? Reflexive property ? postulate Corresponding parts of congruent △s are congruent Definition of ? one year ago one year ago

2. AriPotta

try it first

3. inkyvoyd

So, what have you done so far?

4. KrystaRenee

None lol...

5. AriPotta

try to work it out...

6. inkyvoyd

Well, the first one is a given. What does <BD bisect?

7. KrystaRenee

Yeah, AC I guess. Idk.

8. inkyvoyd

"Given: <A is congruent to <C BD bisects <ABC Prove: D is the midpoint of AC"

9. inkyvoyd

Hope that helps ;)

@KrystaRenee , You might not like math, but like all things that you don't like, you gotta grind through them. I'll try to make it easier and help you, but there are boundaries to what others can do. As quoted from my father, "The quest to seek knowledge is ultimately one's own."

11. KrystaRenee

He seems like a wise man lol. You did help, yes. How do I find out what BD and AD is congruent to?

12. inkyvoyd

I'm guessing you have the reasons for the first 3 statements? if you don't, it's best we work on those first - proofs must be completed from start to end, or from end to start...

13. KrystaRenee

No, that's what I was trying to figure out.

14. inkyvoyd

BD bisects <ABC |Given <ABD is congruent to <CBD |Definition of ? bisector can you figure this out?

15. KrystaRenee

Segment? I honestly don't know..

16. KrystaRenee

Or angle?

17. inkyvoyd

Use the given information.

18. KrystaRenee

Congruent?
