"To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act." Anatole France
Bellwork – Write a theorem about the following
Leg-Leg Congruence
If the legs of one right triangle are
congruent to the corresponding legs of
another right triangle, then the triangles
are congruent
Hypotenuseleg Congruence
If the hypotenuse and a leg of one right
triangle are congruent to the
hypotenuse and corresponding leg of
another right triangle, then the triangles
are congruent.
Leg Angle Congruence
If one leg and an acute angle of one
right triangle are congruent to the
corresponding leg and acute angle of
another right triangle, then the triangles
are congruent.
Hypotenuse-Angle
Congruence
If the hypotenuse and an acute angle of
one right triangle are congruent to the
hypotenuse and corresponding acute
angle of another right triangle then the
two triangles are congruent

KHJ = HKJ, set equal to x
x+ x + 100 = 180
