Squirrel02 Group Title

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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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
