Homework Help: Geometry

Posted by DANIELLE on Thursday, June 14, 2007 at 11:30am.

Can some one please check these for me.Thanks
Angle DEF is similar to Angle HJK and the scale factor of angle DEF to anle HJK IS 5/2. If EF =15 FIND JK
Here is what I came up with Am I correct
5/2 = EF/JK
5/2 =15/JK
5(JK)=30
JK=30/5
JK=6

Given: ABCD is a parallelogram; <1 is congruent to <2

To Prove: ABCD is a Rhombus

Plan: Show <2 is congruent to < CAB.
hence CB is congruent to AB,
making ABCD a parallelogram
with consecutive sides congruent


PROOF

Statements Reasons
1. ABCD is a parallelogram 1.Given
<1 is congruent to <2
2. Draw segment from A to C 2. Two points determine exactly one line
3.< 1 & <3 are congruent 3. Alternate angles are congruent
4. AC bisects angle 1&2 4. Def. of Angle bisector
5 . m<DAB=m<BCD 5. Opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal
6. <2 & <3 are congruent 6. Transitive prop 7 . AB=BC 7. Sides oposite are congruent angles
8.<1 & <2 8. Cor.parts are eual
9. AB=BC=CD=DA 9. ABCD is a rhombus
