    so to find AB you already know the coordinates so: \[AB= \sqrt{(-3-0)^{2}+(8-2)^{2}}\]

    You could leave AB = square roof 34 or round it to 5.83

    Do the same to CD: CD= spuare roof of [ (0- (-2) ^2) + (-4-2)^2 ] CD= square roof of [ ( 0+2)^2 + (-6)^2 ] CD= square roof of ( 4 +36) CD = square roof of 40 CD = 2 square roof 10 or 6.32

    congruents or not based on it definition was : exacly the same. Since you know 2 of it leagth, can you said it was congruents or not? 5.83 = 6.32 ( false ) => it NOT CONGRUENT! :)
