problem 1

Given that line EF is parallel to line GH and line AB and line CD are parallel, which angles are proven congruent by alternate exterior angles?

problem 2

Prove that triangle ABC is congruent to triangle DBE. Given: line AE bisects line CD and side AC and side DE are congruent.

problem 3

This diagram is not drawn to scale! What would the last angle in this square have to be in order to be a quadrilateral? Then, find the angle measurement of the exterior angle.

problem 4

Prove triangle ACD and triangle ACB congruent. Given: AC bisects angle a and angle c. Side AD is congruent to side AB

Problem 5

The rectangle is in a pattern made of identical shapes...What is this called?

Problem 6

What shape is this? Find the other angle measurements.

Problem 7

Assume these are lines... Would they be parallel, oblique, or skew?

Problem 8

Choose the method that explains why triangle ABC is similar to triangle DEF.

A) AA B) SSS C)SAS D) not possible

Problem 9

What kind of triangles are these? If angle d and angle a are congruent, what postulate would you use to solve these congruent?

problem 10

How many diagonals could be drawn in this octagon?
