Example 1

Write a proof.

GIVEN:

PROVE:

Because they are vertical angles, PMQRMS. All points on a circle are the same distance from the center, so MP, MQ, MR, and MSare all equal.

ANSWER

MRSand MPQ are congruent by the SAS Congruence Postulate.

Example 2

In the diagram, QSand RPpass through the center Mof the circle. What can you conclude about MRSand MPQ?

SOLUTION

Prove that

Example 3

You are making a canvas sign to hang on the triangular wall over the door to the barn shown in the picture. You think you can use two identical triangular sheets of canvas. You knowthatRP QS and PQ PS. What postulate or theorem can you use to conclude that

PQRPSR?

Sign Making

Example 4

You are given that PQ PS. By the Reflexive Property, RP RP. By the definition of perpendicular lines, both

RPQ and RPSare right angles, so they are congruent. So, two sides and their included angle are congruent.

ANSWER

You can use the SAS Congruence Postulate to conclude that .
