A. Provide the missing statement and justification in the proof. B. Using complete sentences, explain why the proof would not work without the missing step.

@OakTree can you read that two column ?

  • OakTree
Already there.

okay just making sure

Oh. Duh. So, where it says "Angle PNT = Angle PNM + Angle MNT" that isn't necessarily true unless you first say that Angle PNT = Angle PNM + Angle PNM. Then, after that, you replace the Angle PNM with the Angle MNT. The reason is because you can't add angles like that unless they're directly next to each other. It's very nitpicky, and honestly no one would ever care, but that's it.

huh? no that not what the question asked.. it asked thats the missing step & why wouldnt the proof work without that step

im going to post the column so its easier to read

That's what I gave you. You need to first say that Angle PNT = Angle PNM + Angle MNT.
OakTree

And don't bother with that - it's a waste of your time.

  • anonymous
ohhhhh i see what you did
OakTree
  • OakTree
Good. :)

i think im going to skip that one im confused on what i should put for that step still
OakTree
  • OakTree
Okay.
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks though. or do you know what goes to that step?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if not its fine but if you do it would be great?
OakTree
  • OakTree
What I said goes there. You need to put in that Angle PNT = Angle PNM + Angle MNT.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is the justification? thats what goes in for the statement part right?
OakTree
  • OakTree
Yeah. Everything is up there in things I've said.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
