    intriangle ABC and triangle ADE 1) <BAC =<DAE (reason ---- common to both) 2) <ABC =< ADE (reason corresponding angles as DE||BC and AB is the transversal) hence triangle ABC and ADE are similar

    Your answering a little different then what my teacher does. Can't you answer it with a similarity postulate?

    Statements | Reasons --------------------------------------------------------------- 1. BC || DE | 1. Given 2. <A is congr to <A | 2. Congruence of angles is reflexive 3. <ABC is congr to <ADE | 3. || lines cut by tranversal, corrsesp <s congr. 4. triangle ABC ~ triangle ADE | 4. AA similarity

    No, < means angle. For triangle I actually spelled out triangle.
