Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the first step i need to do @jim_thompson5910 ?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well start with what you are given

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so would it be BCD=EDC BCD=ECD

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, start off saying those two sets of angles are congruent because that's given

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then it would look like this? BCD=EDCGIVEN BCD=ECDGIVEN and then now what?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what segments can you say for sure are congruent

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i would have to say that BCD and BED are congruent right?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what segment is between angles BCD and EDC

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is it just one segment?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes do you see it?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1segment, not angle

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's a point, not a segment

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ohhh C and D sorry lol

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you mean segment CD right?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's the shared side between the two triangles that overlap

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1CD = CD by the reflexive property

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you can say those two overlapping triangles are congruent by the ASA property

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so what would our whole overall problem look like? ill do it, and you see if it looks correct

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BCD=EDCGIVEN BCD=ECDGIVEN so CD=CD by the reflexive property the two overlapping triangles are congruent by the ASA property would this be what it look like?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you'll have to be specific by actually naming the triangles

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BCD=EDCGIVEN BCD=ECDGIVEN so CD=CD by the reflexive property BCD and EDC are congruent by the ASA property how about this?^^

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1awesome! okay how about the next one now:)

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh you might want to say triangles BCD and EDC are congruent by the ASA property so you don't confuse them with angles

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok how do we get started on the next one

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we have to start with what we are given.

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1exactly, so go ahead and state that

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1im not sure how that to start this one because Ive never done one with a midpoint in it, but ill try real quik

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you start off by stating that D is the midpoint of AC (given) then you use the definition of midpoint to say that AD = CD

katlin95

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BDC=BDAGIVEN BCD=BADGIVEN RIGHT?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1where does it say that BCD=BAD is given?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but the first one is given

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so add that on

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1AD = CD not because it's given, but by the definition of midpoint

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A midpoint cuts a line segment into two equal halves

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then how do i find my other given?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're done with you're givens

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh so theirs only one given then

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now you need one more side or one more angle, here is a visual hint: dw:1358892974213:dw

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are 2 givens, but you've used them up already

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then if we have BDC=BDAGIVEN I would have to look at the other angle i have on the picture to get my other given?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1358893179414:dw

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1see those segments i highlighted?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are congruent, do you see why?

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, because they have equal sides right?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are congruent because they are the same segment BD dw:1358893344746:dw

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you'll have to say BD = BD and give a reason why that's true

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so I would say BD=BD are reflective property ?

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay and then I say why my triangles are congruent?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes and which property will you use

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this may help dw:1358893552844:dw

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then it would look like this: BDC=BDAGIVEN So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the ASA property is this right?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you're missing something

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1AD = DC but why is that?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and remember you have 2 given statements

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because its the midpoint, where would i place it?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and it's not the ASA property

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1would it be the SAS property?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that's correct

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BDC=BDAGIVEN AD = DCGIVEN So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the SAS property

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no AD = DC is not given

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1go back and look at the doc and you'll see it's not given

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so then what would our next given be and is SAS correct for the property?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look back at the doc, and simply restate what they give

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all i see is Dis the midpoint of side AC, and then BDC=BDA

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just restate those and say given

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that will allow you say that AD = DC because of the definition of midpoint

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how would it look ?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like you had it, just add those lines in

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, where would I put that at when i put my answer in?

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so would it look like this: BDC=BDAGIVEN side AD =side DCGIVEN So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the SAS property

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1put those givens at the top, then put AD = DC  definition of midpoint right after that

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1AD = DC  definition of midpoint BDC=BDAGIVEN So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the SAS property

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you forgot AD = DC  definition of midpoint again

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BDC=BDAGIVEN AD=DCGIVEN AD = DC  definition of midpoint So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the SAS property

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok show me what you got for this one

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got: AB=CDGIVEN BF=EDGIVEN is this right?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1AB  CD, not AB = CD

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also, angle B = angle D  given

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then it would look like this ABCDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1along with BF=EDGIVEN

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have 3 given statements

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh how would i order them?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in any order, all 3 are given and don't depend on one another

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ABCDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven BF=EDGIVEN now what?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because AB  CD, we can say that angle BAF = angle DCE because they are alternate interior angles

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so essentially angle BAF = angle DCE  alternate interior angles what's next?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have 2 angles, and a side, which congruence property can you use?

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BAF=angle DCEalternate interior angles angle B=angle Dgiven BF=EDGIVEN just to clear it up is this right^^ if its not can you correct it?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you put the givens first though the "given" statements always come first

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since you always start with what you are given

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and you build from there

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BF=EDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven BAF=angle DCEalternate interior angles

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you forgot the line ABCD  given

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1where do i put that that at

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1above the "alternate interior angles" line

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BF=EDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven ABCD  given BAF=angle DCEalternate interior angles

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have 2 angles, and a side, which congruence property can you use?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you would use AAS because the two angles are adjacent and the last side is not between them

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, so then would i say anything about reflective property?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no you can't use the reflexive property for this one

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it looks like this: BF=EDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven ABCD  given BAF=angle DCEalternate interior angles triangle BF and ED are congruent by the AAS property

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1last line is more like triangle ABF and triangle CDE are congruent by the AAS property

katlin95
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, but otherwise it looks good?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes it looks great
