Homework Help: geometry

Posted by josh on Sunday, December 13, 2009 at 7:13pm.

I have triangle XYZ with BX as the bisector sides XY and XZ are congruent. I have to write a proof for angle Y being congruent to angle Z.
This is what I have, but it doesn't seem correct - can anyone help?

XY is congruent to XZ - Given

XB bisects angle XYZ - Perpendicular Bisector of Isosceles Triangle

YB is congruent to BZ - Don't know why

XB is congruent to XB - Reflexive Prop

XBY is congruent to XBZ - SSS Theorem

Angle Y is congruent to Angle Z - CPCTC
