    Rita is writing statements as shown to prove that if segment ST is parallel to segment RQ, then x = 24. Statement Reason 1. Segment ST is parallel to segment QR Given 2. Angle QRT is congruent to angle STP Corresponding angles formed by parallel lines and their transversal are congruent. 3. Angle SPT is congruent to angle QPR Reflexive property of angles. 4. Triangle SPT is congruent to triangle QPR Angle-Angle Similarity Postulate 5. ? Corresponding sides of similar triangles are in proportion. Which equation can she use as statement 5? (2x + 28):28 = 60:35 (2x + 28):28 = 60:95 (2x + 28):60 = 28:95 (2x + 28):95 = 28:35

    |dw:1395180647953:dw| according to "Corresponding sides of similar triangles are in proportion" DB:AB = EC:AC

    or to fit here we must use (AD+DB):AD = (AE+EC):AC

    I guess we can use AB:AC = AD:AC

    yeah I mixed things up :S sorry we have to use PQ:PR = PS:PT where PQ = PS+PQ PR = PT+TR

    so it will be (2x + 28):95 = 28:35
