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

    The scale factor of triangle DEF to triangle HJK is 5/2. If EF =15 find JK EF : JK = 5 : 2 15 : JK = 5 : 2 15 * 2 = JK * 5 30 = 5(JK) 5(JK) / 5 = 30 / 5 JK = 6 Am I CORRECT ON THIS ONE? Looks like EF and JK are corresponding sides

    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.
