    AB||CD|GIVEN angle B=angle D|given BF=ED|GIVEN now what?

    because AB || CD, we can say that angle BAF = angle DCE because they are alternate interior angles

    so essentially angle BAF = angle DCE | alternate interior angles what's next?

    you have 2 angles, and a side, which congruence property can you use?

    BAF=angle DCE|alternate interior angles angle B=angle D|given BF=ED|GIVEN just to clear it up is this right^^ if its not can you correct it?

    you put the givens first though the "given" statements always come first

    ASA OR AAS

    you would use AAS because the two angles are adjacent and the last side is not between them

    Ok, so then would i say anything about reflective property?

    no you can't use the reflexive property for this one

    so it looks like this: BF=ED|GIVEN angle B=angle D|given AB||CD | given BAF=angle DCE|alternate interior angles triangle BF and ED are congruent by the AAS property

    last line is more like triangle ABF and triangle CDE are congruent by the AAS property
