I know, I'm asking you what kind they are are they acute triangles? obtuse triangles? right triangles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
im guessing they are right angles
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
they are (the square angles)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so they are right triangles
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
because of this, we can use two special congruence theorems that only apply to right triangles
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
any ideas what they are?

hypotenuse- leg,and side angle side?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
close
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
HL and LL HL = hypotenuse leg LL = leg leg
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
but since we don't know anything about the hypotenuse from the drawing, we can't use HL so we can only use LL
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what else can we use?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ha, and la?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
correct, this also only applies to right triangles (sry just had to confirm that) so if you know the hypotenuse and an acute angle, then you can use HA if you know one leg and an acute angle, then you can use LA HA = hypotenuse angle LA = leg angle
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what else

  • anonymous
i can use others? angle angle side?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
good, there's a lot you can use actually you can also use SAS the only thing you can't use is HL and HA since we know nothing about the hypotenuse
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
but because we have info about both legs, the right angle, and we have one acute angle, we can use those other theorems
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the answer to my question would be LA, SAS, AND LL?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
AAS as well (I guess you didn't write that out since you already picked it)
