Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All I know is that it is not C, I tried that the first time because I thought the vertical angles was a side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jilliana29 read the definitions of each from the site @nono266 Provided. http://www.regentsprep.org/Regents/math/geometry/GPB/theorems.htm \ Use to support SideSideSide (SSS) Congruence If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. SideAngleSide (SAS) Congruence If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another triangle, the triangles are congruent. AngleSideAngle (ASA) Congruence If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another triangle, the triangles are congruent. AngleAngleSide (AAS) Congruence If two angles and the nonincluded side of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another triangle, the triangles are congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because two of the options have "SSA" as a postulate, and you said how that is not a real postulate, also I tried C the first time and I did not get it right. So that narrows it down to B. @nono266

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well so you used process of elimination, i know it doesn't say to provide a reason but in future references make sure you have one. :)
