Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yeah do u know what CPCT is?

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1CPCTC is an acronym for corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent. CPCTC is commonly used at or near the end of a proof which asks the student to show that two angles or two sides are congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4its a property (Corresponding Pairs Of Congruent Triangles)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so you must have noticed in step 6 it is mentioned:: OL ≅ ON CPCTC

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so should i write OL ≅ ON in not cpctc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4how can that be true before it is proved that the triangles are congruent which has been proved in step8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4no its the property of isosceles triangle ie ∠OLN ≅ ∠LNO Given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now why is step 6 incorrect?

max1409

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because OL ≅ ON is opposite sides of an isosceles triangle.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. but the statement dosent say that they are equal, it says their congruent. you were right about 6 being wrong. but i wanted for you to know why

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the statement to be true it should either be OL ≅ ON Reflexive property or OL = ON CPCTE
