I HAVE to get this done within the next 30 minutes. So, if could take the time to help me for a few minutes, I'd really appreciate it.
Name a pair of triangles in the figure and state whether they are congruent by SSS, SAS, ASA, AAS, or HL.
Given: Line segment NP is congruent to line segment OM, line segment MN is congruent to line segment PO
Diagram is in the comments.

It's okay. I understand. Would you know how to write a paragraph proof? That's the last question I require some help on.

So, basically angles NMP and CMP are congruent to one another by the ASA Postulate?

Line segment CP is congruent to line segment NM. Line segment NP is congruent to line segment OM. Angles NPM is congruent to CMP. Is that correct?

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i'm thinking you mean CPM and not CMP. but i just don't know how we conclude that those two angles are congruent

Okay...so the information we have posted is not enough to prove it by one of the postulates?

i don't think so :/ but they wouldn't give you an impossible question...

I think it would be due to the SAS Postulate... Just a moment please.

Line segment NP is congruent to line segment OM Reason: Given Line segment MN is congruent to line segment PO Reason: Given So, I guess we need angles next, since all of the possible line segments have been stated.

Squirrel02 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I think that NMP is congruent to NPM by the SSS postulate possibly. This is due to NP = OM and MN = PO MP is congruent to MP by the reflexive property. What do you think?
 one year ago

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you can't use SSS postulate to prove that two angles are congruent lol

oh my. the reflexive property. i totally forgot about that. loolz.

Do you think this is enough to prove it? Line segment NP is congruent to line segment OM Reason: Given Line segment MN is congruent to line segment PO Reason: Given MP is congruent to MP by the reflexive property. Triangle NMP is congruent to triangle OPM by SSS.

Thank you very much. Write a paragraph proof. Given: line segment BC is congruent to line segment EC and line segment AC is congruent to line segment DC Prove: line segment BA is congruent to line segment ED

Angle ABC is congruent to DEC by the vertical angles are congruent Line segment BA is congruent to line segment DE
 one year ago

AriPotta Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
It is given that line segment BC is congruent to line segment EC and line segment AC is congruent to line segment DC. Angles ACB and ECD are congruent by the vertical angles theorem. By SAS, triangles ABC and DEC are congruent. Therefore, line segment BA is congruent to line segment ED by CPCTC
