Geometry

I need help on these two.

Consider tirangles ABC and DEF. Side A is congruent to side F. Angle A is congruent to angle F. Angle B is congruent to angle E. What postulate or theorem can be used to prove that the two triangles are congruent?

If angle1 and angle2 are complementary angles, and mangle1 = 5x-9 and mangle2=4x, find the measure of the two angles.

Step by step would be great guys. I need it


Cant you use the ASA theorem? Two triangles are congruent if a pair of corresponding angles and the included side are equal.

if 5x-9 + 4x=90 solve for x.


I completely forgot about the ASA theorem. I don't know why it didn't cross my mind when I read the problem! Thank you. =)


If the m<1=39 degrees and <2 is congruent to <1 does that equal 39 degrees.

    In most geometry courses, we learn that there's no such thing as "SSA Congruence". That is, if we have triangles ABC and DEF such that AB = DE, BC = EF, and angle A = angle D, then we cannot deduce that ABC and DEF are congruent.
