Yes you can by since FD=NM then FG=NP and since it said DG= MP all the sides are congruent. IN additionally since Angle P=D than Angle M=G because it is an Isosceles. And then the top anle is the same because the other two angles are know and the angles in a triangle must add up to 180 degrees. Now that we know all the sides and angles and their all equal to each other than the triangles must be congruent.
IF the marked angle in triangle MNP was angle M (and not angle P), then you could use the SAS postulate

but the angles are marked in two different spots, so I don't think it's going to work
I guess you could say that because the side opposite angle P is MN, and because MN = DF and you have 2 congruent sides, this must mean that angle G = angle P
so (not 100% sure), you can make this marking
but that still doesn't help us with triangle MNP
we still don't have the angle M (ie we can't show it's congruent to angle D)
so it looks like you would have to use the SSA case...but that is not a valid congruence property
It must not be able to prove that DFG = MNP
yeah I don't think we can prove the two triangles are congruent
