PROVING STATEMENTS
What is the difference between congruence and
equality?
Building a Proof



When writing a proof, you can only use facts that
have previously been proved (theorems), facts that
are assumed true without proof (postulates), and
definitions.
Proofs can be written in paragraph form or in a
two-column form.
We will use two-column form most often.

Given: state the “given” facts
Diagram: a figure that shows what is given
Prove: a statement of what you have to prove
Statements: (Left Column) numbered logical
Reasons: (Right Column) numbered reasons that

Properties of Equality (review)


These two properties are often interchangeable:
Substitution Prop. of Equality: If a=b, then we can
substitute (plug in) a for b, or b for a.


If x+a=c AND a=b, then x+b=c (Plug it in, plug it in!)
Transitive Prop. of Equality: If a=b & b=c, then a=c.


the same height. =)
Properties of Equality (review cont.)


Mirror, mirror, on the wall…
Reflexive Prop. of Equality: a=a
 Anything
is equal to itself (Think about

Symmetric Property of Equality: If a=b, then b=a.
 Think
about something symmetrical… if you flip it, it still
looks the same. You can always flip an equation, Left
to Right. (Flip it good!)
Properties of Congruence

These 3 properties work for congruence also:

Reflexive: For any segment AB, AB ≅ AB.

Symmetric: If AB ≅ CD, then CD ≅ AB.

Transitive: If AB ≅ CD & CD ≅ EF, then AB ≅ EF.
