Question Group #2
Directions and/or Common Information:
Use the following diagram for the next 7 questions: Which of the following allows us to say that angle AXB is congruent to angle DXC?

 Why is angle XBA congruent to angle XCD?
 2 they are vertical anglesthey are supplementary they are alternate interior anglesthey just look that way

 What information is missing from the diagram that we can use to prove triangle AXB is congruent to triangle DXC using ASA?
 3 XA is congruent to XDCD is congruent to ABangle D is congruent to angle AXB is congruent to XC

 If X is the midpoint of BC, what would be the reason that XB is congruent to XC?
 4 definition of midpointdefinition of bisectmidpoint congruence theoremthey look the same

 If BC bisects AD at point X what would be the reason that XA is congruent to XD?
 5 Bisecting angle theorembisector congruencedefinition of midpointdefinition of bisect

 If the information in #4 and #5 is considered to be a given, how could we prove the triangles are congruent?
