WYZXZY

PROVE

Redraw the triangles so they are side by side with corresponding parts in the same position. Mark the given information in the diagram.

EXAMPLE 3

Use the Hypotenuse-Leg Congruence Theorem

Write a proof.

HL Congruence Theorem

EXAMPLE 3

Use the Hypotenuse-Leg Congruence Theorem

Choose a postulate or theorem

Sign Making

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?

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.

You can use the SAS Congruence Postulate to conclude that .
