EXAMPLE 1

Use the SAS Congruence Postulate

STATEMENTS

REASONS

ABCCDA

SAS Congruence Postulate

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.

MRSand MPQ are congruent by the SAS Congruence Postulate.

EXAMPLE 2

Use SAS and properties of shapes

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

SOLUTION

Prove that

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 andPQ PS . What postulate or theorem can you use to conclude that

PQR PSR?

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 .
