    i think its suppose to be the M(measure) of angle R and Measure of angle S

    120 Is not a choice

    Sorry, look at the new picture. Only angle U and S are congruent.

    But you can find out what the sum of all the angles is.

    100+100+120+t=360? 320+t=360 t=40

    they all need to = 360 and u and s are conruent ao 100+100+120 =320 and 320+40=360

    |dw:1359136676205:dw| Diagonal RS is congruent to itself. So triangle RUT and triangle RST are congruent, and by corresponding parts, angle U and S are congruent.

    |dw:1359136772891:dw| If you draw diagonal US, even though US is congruent to itself, there are no triangles that you can prove congruent. So you don't know anything about angles R and T being congruent.
