Can anyone help me?
The figure below shows triangle NRM with r2 = m2 + n2:
Triangle NRM has legs m and n, and r is the length of its longest side.
Ben constructed a right triangle EFD with legs m and n, as shown below:
Triangle EFD has legs m and n and hypotenuse f.
He made the following table to prove that triangle NRM is a right triangle:
Statement Reason
1. r2 = m2 + n2 Given
2. f2 = m2 + n2 Pythagorean Theorem
3. f2 = r2 Substitution
4. f = r Square Root Property of Equality
5. Triangle NRM is congruent to triangle EFD SSS Postulate
6. Angle NRM is a right angle ?
7. Triangle NRM is a
