- SSS Postulate - If the sidesof one triangle are congruent to the sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
- SAS Postulate - If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

. Paragraph Proof

Since E is the midpoint of segment AC, segment AE is congruent to EC by midpoint theorem. Since E is the midpoint of segment BD, segment BE is congruent to segment ED by midpoint theorem. Angle AEB and angle CED are vertical angles by definition. Therefore angle AEB is congruent to angle CED because all vertical angles are congruent. Triangle ABE is congruent to triangle CED by the side-angle-side postulate.

3. AEB and CED are vertical angles.
