Cross products EDF are right triangles. AC DF ABC B DEF E 7. Def. of segments EF 4. Corr. sides of s are proportional. Proof: From part a, A CDB by definition of similar triangles. ABE DBC because all right angles are congruent. Thus, ABE DBC by AA Similarity. BC BD BE BA from definition of similar triangles. 2. Corresponding Postulate 5. Def. of AQ BC DE BC LPJ A B C Proof: AHB, AJC, and EBC are right angles because perpendicular lines form right angles. Since all right angles are congruent, AHB AJC EBC. Since A A by the Reflexive Property, ABH ACJ, by AA Similarity. Likewise, since C C, ACJ DCB. By the Transitive Property, ABH DCB. BC EF B 2. Alternate Interior Theorem H Reasons C LNM, PMN 36.
