Which is the hypotenuse-angle theorem?
________________________________________

A. If the hypotenuse and an acute angle of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
B. If the hypotenuse and an obtuse angle of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
C. If the hypotenuse and an acute angle of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are complimentary.
D. If the hypotenuse and an acute angle of a right triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of another right triangle, then the triangles are supplementary.

  • Geometry -

    For heaven's sake, read the choicea and figure out what they are saying. Then choose the one that makes sense.

    B. Right triangles do not have obtuse angles

    C. and D. The words "complimentary" and "supplementary" refer to angles, not triangles.

    We will gladly critique your thinking.
