HJKL and WXYZ are right trapezoids. Are these trapezoids congruent ifa) H L ¯ ≅ W Z ¯             a n d             L K ¯ ≅ Z Y ¯ ? b) H L ¯ ≅ W Z ¯     ,       L K ¯ ≅ Z Y ¯ ,               a n d           ∠ K ≅ ∠ Y ?  To determine

To Find:

Whether the given trapezoids are congruent.

Explanation

The given trapezoids HJLK and WXYZ are

We know that for two right trapezoids to be congruent, the base angles of both the trapezoids needs to be congruent.

We know that for right trapezoid HJ¯||LK¯andLH.

Similarly WX¯||ZY¯a

To determine

To Find:

Whether the given trapezoids are congruent.
