# In Exercise 16 and 18, complete the missing statements or reasons for each proof. Use an indirect proof to completethe following proof. Given: Δ M N Q with m ∠ N = 120 ° Prove: ∠ M and ∠ Q are not complementary. To determine

To prove:

The given statement.

Explanation

For indirect proof, consider M, and Q are complementary. According to the corollary, the sum of two complementary angle will be 90°.

Given:

The following figure shows the given diagram.

Given that, ΔMNQ with mN=120°.

Approach:

Write the sum of complementary angle.

mM+mQ=90°

According to the theorem of triangle, the sum of three angle will be 90°
