1. Provide the reasons for the proof. Given: m 1 = m 2 Prove: AC BD Statements: Reasons: a. m 1 = m 2 a. Given b. 1 is supplementary to 2. b. m 1+m 2= 180 c. m 1 + m 2 = 180 c. 1 is supplementary to 2 d. m 1 + m 1 = 180 2( m 1) = 180 d. m 1= 90 90 +90 = 180 m 2= 90 e. m 1 = 90 e. m 1 is a right angle f. 1 is a right angle. f. m 1 = 90 g. AC BD g. m 1 = m 2 2. Explain whether the following statement is a valid definition: “A 150° angle is an obtuse angle.” Definition: That is not valid because it is not reversible. Meaning it is false. Converse: An obtuse angle is 150º. An obtuse angle could be any measurement that is more than 90º, but less than 180º, but not only 150º. Biconditional: There is no biconditional for this statement because in order to make a biconditional, you need two hypotheses, and then you combine the two. And in order to do that, they both need to be true 3. Explain the purposes of inductive and deductive reasoning in mathematics.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
