Triangle ABC is a right triangle. Point D is the midpoint of side AB and point E is the midpoint of side AC. The measure of angle ADE is 36°. The following flowchart with missing statements and reasons proves that the measure of angle ECB is 54°: Which statement and reason can be used to fill in the numbered blank spaces?

    From the picture: this doesnt match up: 1.Measure of angle AED is 36° 2.Base Angle Theorem 3.Corresponding angles are congruent AED cant be 36, as ADE is 36 and the other angle is 90

    if lines DE and BC are parallel: the triangle is congruent nothing in the picture indicates whether they are or are not parallel... so we can't assume they are... so ... yeah, i don't know how to solve it, sáll

    wait: ur 2nd picture indicates they're parallel (the flow diagram)

    as they're parallel: angle ADE = angle ABC and angle AED = ACB so they're congruent

    AED = 54 ACB = 54 ADE = 36 ABC = 36 they share an angle of 90 so ... yeah

    u tell me @Bacon211 are the corresponding angles congruent? or the alternate interior angles congruent? once you understand this you can chose ther right answer

    cool, so as they're corresponding angles, i'd pick this one: 1.Measure of angle AED is 54° 2.Triangle Sum Theorem 3.Corresponding angle are congruent
