how far did you get on #2
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
um i think i finished that one, not sure let me check
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok post what you got
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
im not so sure how to do it?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or just write it out here
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
like what do you mean?
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
# 2 im not sure what to do
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what is the first step i need to do @jim_thompson5910 ?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well start with what you are given
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would it be BCD=EDC BCD=ECD
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good, start off saying those two sets of angles are congruent because that's given
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so then it would look like this? BCD=EDCGIVEN BCD=ECDGIVEN and then now what?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what segments can you say for sure are congruent
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i would have to say that BCD and BED are congruent right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what segment is between angles BCD and EDC
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
is it just one segment?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes do you see it?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
segment, not angle
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that's a point, not a segment
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
there's the figure dw:1358891844771:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what I'm talking about is this segment (in black) dw:1358891880746:dw
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ohhh C and D sorry lol
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you mean segment CD right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that's the shared side between the two triangles that overlap
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
CD = CD by the reflexive property
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then you can say those two overlapping triangles are congruent by the ASA property
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay, so what would our whole overall problem look like? ill do it, and you see if it looks correct
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BCD=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?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you'll have to be specific by actually naming the triangles
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BCD=EDCGIVEN BCD=ECDGIVEN so CD=CD by the reflexive property BCD and EDC are congruent by the ASA property how about this?^^
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you nailed it
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
awesome! okay how about the next one now:)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh you might want to say triangles BCD and EDC are congruent by the ASA property so you don't confuse them with angles
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok how do we get started on the next one
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
we have to start with what we are given.
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
exactly, so go ahead and state that
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
im not sure how that to start this one because Ive never done one with a midpoint in it, but ill try real quik
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well 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
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BDC=BDAGIVEN BCD=BADGIVEN RIGHT?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
where does it say that BCD=BAD is given?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but the first one is given
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so add that on
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
AD = CD not because it's given, but by the definition of midpoint
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
A midpoint cuts a line segment into two equal halves
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so then how do i find my other given?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You're done with you're givens
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh so theirs only one given then
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now you need one more side or one more angle, here is a visual hint: dw:1358892974213:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
There are 2 givens, but you've used them up already
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 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?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
dw:1358893179414:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
see those segments i highlighted?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they are congruent, do you see why?
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, because they have equal sides right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they are congruent because they are the same segment BD dw:1358893344746:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so you'll have to say BD = BD and give a reason why that's true
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so I would say BD=BD are reflective property ?
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay and then I say why my triangles are congruent?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes and which property will you use
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
this may help dw:1358893552844:dw
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 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?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you're missing something
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
AD = DC but why is that?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and remember you have 2 given statements
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because its the midpoint, where would i place it?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and it's not the ASA property
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
would it be the SAS property?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes that's correct
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BDC=BDAGIVEN AD = DCGIVEN So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the SAS property
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no AD = DC is not given
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
go back and look at the doc and you'll see it's not given
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay, so then what would our next given be and is SAS correct for the property?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
look back at the doc, and simply restate what they give
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
all i see is Dis the midpoint of side AC, and then BDC=BDA
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just restate those and say given
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that will allow you say that AD = DC because of the definition of midpoint
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so how would it look ?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
like you had it, just add those lines in
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay, where would I put that at when i put my answer in?
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 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
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
put those givens at the top, then put AD = DC  definition of midpoint right after that
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
AD = DC  definition of midpoint BDC=BDAGIVEN So BD=BD by the reflective property Triangles BDC and BDA are congruent by the SAS property
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you forgot AD = DC  definition of midpoint again
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BDC=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
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok show me what you got for this one
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I got: AB=CDGIVEN BF=EDGIVEN is this right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
AB  CD, not AB = CD
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
also, angle B = angle D  given
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so then it would look like this ABCDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
along with BF=EDGIVEN
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you have 3 given statements
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh how would i order them?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in any order, all 3 are given and don't depend on one another
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ABCDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven BF=EDGIVEN now what?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because AB  CD, we can say that angle BAF = angle DCE because they are alternate interior angles
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so essentially angle BAF = angle DCE  alternate interior angles what's next?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you have 2 angles, and a side, which congruence property can you use?
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BAF=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?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you put the givens first though the "given" statements always come first
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
since you always start with what you are given
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and you build from there
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BF=EDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven BAF=angle DCEalternate interior angles
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you forgot the line ABCD  given
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
where do i put that that at
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
above the "alternate interior angles" line
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
BF=EDGIVEN angle B=angle Dgiven ABCD  given BAF=angle DCEalternate interior angles
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you have 2 angles, and a side, which congruence property can you use?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you would use AAS because the two angles are adjacent and the last side is not between them
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ok, so then would i say anything about reflective property?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no you can't use the reflexive property for this one
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 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
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
last line is more like triangle ABF and triangle CDE are congruent by the AAS property
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay, but otherwise it looks good?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes it looks great
 one year ago

katlin95Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thanks so much jim! you tha best:))
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
