Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm not an expert on geometry, so doublecheck this for sure, but my gut feel goes with SAS Postulate, since you're given that the two opposite corresponding sides are congruent, the right angles obviously are equal and congruent, and the triangles share a side, making it congruent. Two sides and an angle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you see they have the same hypotenuses and they have the same leg length, so the other leg must be equal according to the pythagorean theorem, so maybe HL postulate, could mean 'Hyopotenuse Leg' Postulate
