Given The picture use the given to prove triangle ABC is similar to ADE.
Have one Side be the statement and the other side be the reason.
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
i hope its clear to u me little lazy in drawing tables and other stuffs
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
is the greater sign mean the triangle?
This is basically what matricked did. It just looks more formal.
Thanks both of you then. That is all
No, < means angle. For triangle I actually spelled out triangle.
