Based on the given information, can you conclude that (Triangle) QRS is congruent to (Triangle) TUV? Explain. Given: QR is congruent to TU QS is congruent to TV Angle R is congruent to angle U QRS is congruent to TUV

So you cant? because there is not postulate A.S.S?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Look at what you have, a side (QS) followed by another side (QR) followed by an angle (R). There is no postulate or theorem SSA or retriceto prove triangles congruent, so you can't prove the triangles congruent from the given information.

You are correct.

Thought so, just wanted back up! Thanks! i have one more question if you mind helping me out?

You have a question?

Well this is what i said the first time and it was marked wrong...
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Really? Are you sure you copied the problem correctly. From the given info, it looks like it would be SSA, which does not allow you to prove two triangles congruent.

  • anonymous
Im 100% sure...But it was weird because in the given it was put that they are congruent...

I have a question about the given.

mhm?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
This is what you wrote above as given: "Given: QR is congruent to TU QS is congruent to TV Angle R is congruent to angle U QRS is congruent to TUV" The first two lines are congruence of segments. The third line is congruence of angles. What is the 4th line of given? Is it supposed to be a line of prove the triangles congruent, as in hte prove line of a proof? Is it part of the given? Is it about triangles or angles? Since there is no symbol before the three letters, I can't tell.

Triangles

Wait. the given incvludes the traingles are congruent? Or is it the line that should read Prove: triangle QRS is congruent to triangle TUV
anonymous
  • anonymous
No its in the given!
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
If that is the case, then of course you can conclude the triangles are congruent. You are being told they are. I thought the last line was supposed to be the "Prove" line in the proof, and the question was if the proof was possible.
anonymous
  • anonymous
No...So what exactly do i write? that they are congruent because its in the given?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
The fact that they only give you info on sides and angles to have SSA, which is not enough to prove triangles congruent is irrelevant since they are actually telling you the triangles are congruent.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Yes, exactly. The triangles are congruent because it is given.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, lol
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Thanks for going back to the problem. I misunderstood the last line of given thinking it's the Prove line of the proof.
