you will need to see side- angle - side in that order
Can you explain what the answers mean to me, please?
I mean, the options given.
First, that picture is not very good. what they mean is |dw:1437481223227:dw|
you are looking for SAS you are given an angle (the bottom angle) and a side (the line down the middle) what else do you need ?
you want to use side -angle - side check off what you have, and what is left over that you need?
So I need E, I, and K?
since I already have T?
ignore the letters. Just get the idea you are told about an angle and a side you want to use side- angle - side what do we need (the answer is either: angle or side ) which do we need?
I'm sorry Phi. I thank you for having patience with me. I just don't have an eye for this stuff.
We need a side, then?
yes we need a side now we need to figure out which side
when we write side-angle-side that means the "parts" are *next to each other" so put your finger on the side we know, then move to the angle we know then move to the next side... that last side is what we need
and we do that for both triangles
ek = ki ?
ek and ki are the top sides |dw:1437481799802:dw|
do you see the order should go like this |dw:1437481889400:dw|
and then we do the same thing for the other triangle we want the bottom sides to be equal
So we need the KET = KIT?
to name a side we list the end points (order does not matter) so a side is named using two letters. the start and the end letter
oooohhh we need ET and IT!?
FYI, KET is an angle angles use 3 letters, start, pointy end, and then end point
yes ET and IT
I'm sorry for taking up your time yet once again. Your effort is greatly appreciated, Sir. :) I really like how you actually explain to me until I get it myself. So thank you.
