## ze4life 2 years ago consider triangle DEF and triangle JKL,with DE=JK,EF=KL,and<EDF= KJL. Two sides and a non-included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and a non-included angle of the other triangle.From your solution to part A,is it correct to conclude that triangle DEF must be congruent to triangle JKL?answer yes or no and explain your answer using complete sentences.

can u explain the question because i cant understand

Given two pairs of congruent segments and a pair of congruent angles opposite a pair of congruent segments.|dw:1355538753912:dw| can you conclude that the two sides are congruent?

4. sirm3d

can you conclude that the two TRIANGLES are congruent?

5. ze4life

yes because if two angles of a triangle are congruent,then the sides opposite those angles are congruent

11. sirm3d

i'll think first of how to say it correctly, coz im not good with words.

12. ze4life

take ur time its alright

Let's begin with an isosceles triangle, and extending the base to one side.|dw:1355539972915:dw|

14. sirm3d

at the vertex, draw a segment to the extension of the base |dw:1355540028031:dw|

15. sirm3d

two triangles are formed satisfying the conditions|dw:1355540083358:dw||dw:1355540128449:dw|
