Angle B = 90 degrees, side BC = 20, angle Y = 90 degrees, and side YZ = 20. What additional information would you need to prove that ΔABC≅ΔXYZ by HL?
Angle A is congruent to angle X.
Angle B is congruent to angle Y.
Side AB is congruent to side XY.
Side AC is congruent to side XZ.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Can you post or draw the diagram, according to the given information, and start from there? In geometry, a diagram must be drawn, if it is not already supplied. Drawing the diagram by hand will help you sort out the given information. With practice, most simple problems will be solved when you finish drawing the diagram.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Once you have done that, you can determine which sides are the heights and which are the lengths. And the problem will be solved.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That doesn't sound good for someone working on geometry. I believe the first lesson in geometry is to follow instructions/information to draw a diagram. I'll start the drawing and let you complete. Question wants you to prove ΔABC≅ΔXYZ, and angle B=90. so as we discussed before, the angles must be listed in order. dw:1444075556282:dw Now read the question again, and fill in all information not already in the diagram. After that, you can decide which of the missing information is required to prove by HL.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@mathmate i think D would be my answer, i just checked it with my other options and none of them match up except for D :3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's good. It seems that the notion of "height" is not clear to you. Height in a figure is the length measure perpendicular to the base. For example, dw:1444076849602:dw You will see that the slant side is not a height. Only the perpendicular distance is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if its slanted/diagnal its called a perpendicular distance? @mathmate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2"Height in a figure is the length measure perpendicular to the base." If it is not perpendicular to the base it is not a height. Think of what you measure when you measure the height of a building. You would not measure it on the slant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OHHHHHHHHHHHH ok so id compare measuring the height of a regular building to the leaning tower of pizza?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now that you know what the length (BC) and height. You know what additional information you would need to complete the proof.
