Proof B This task is a geometric proof, and you will need to develop logical statements that are supported by reasons. Support each  statement with a reason. Keep in mind: 1. The diagram is NOT drawn to scale. 2. There may be multiple ways to show your proof. Most people prove this in 7–16 steps, so if you need to add additional rows to the table, feel free to do so. The number of  steps to complete this task does not matter as much as making sure that all the STATEMENTS and REASONS you list are  correct.
