anyone

people probably still sleep or sum

pooja just got online

anyone?

i am so confused

do you get it

I suck at geometry ;-;

?

well we know that these are angles and lines and there asking which is a right statement

they are asking for errors

|dw:1438177982190:dw|

i am still confused

this one is right so this one is not it

so how do i find the error

idk im still trying to figure this out im sorry

?

you have to check step by step

k can you help me

yeah do u know what CPCT is?

no

its a property (Corresponding Pairs Of Congruent Triangles)

yeah...

so what should i do

so you must have noticed in step 6 it is mentioned:: OL ≅ ON CPCTC

no ol is not on cptc

so

so should i write OL ≅ ON in not cpctc

no its the property of isosceles triangle ie ∠OLN ≅ ∠LNO Given

so what should i write ?

i am really bad at geometry

?

you should write OL ≅ ON (opposite sides of an isosceles triangle)

whats the second error ?

im trying to identify it. :P

k

did you find the second error

im trying bro

k

this is so hard

its not so hard and i dont think there is another error at all. every step seems perfect

did you find it?

nahh im sorry!!

darn

i am so stuck lol i have been trying to figure this out for 1 hour

?

@satellite73 can you please help him?

is there a picture for this proof?

no picture

just the two column proof

?

do you have an idea of what the incorrect ones are?

step 6 is incorrect

but i can't find the second one

?

hang on a second

k

|dw:1438180391633:dw|

here are your triangles

k

now why is step 6 incorrect?

because OL ≅ ON is opposite sides of an isosceles triangle.

?

but they are still congruent

ohh ok

i am really confused now

what does CPCTE mean?

corresponding parts congruent triangles

k

for the statement to be true it should either be
OL ≅ ON Reflexive property
or
OL = ON CPCTE

k

so whats the second one and why?

i am not sure

can you help me find the second one

yeah. look at all of the signs and wording

is the second error 5 LE ≅ EN Definition of a Perpendicular Bisector

nope

look at number 8. do you see anything wrong?

it does not look like an asa triangle

what congruence postulate would fit here?

how about SSS?

k

so how should i write my answer?

no i was asking if SSS looked right

does it?

yes

?

?

8 OLE ≅ ΔONE SIde-Side-Side (SSS) Postulate

k so should i write statement 6 and 8 are wrong.

or do i have to explain?

correct the error

can you help me write out the answer?
