The proof by using given information.

Explanation

Given:

Given: HJ¯JF¯,HG¯FG¯

Prove: ΔHJKΔFGK

 PROOF Statements Reasons 1. ? 1. Given 2. ∠s G and J are right ∠s 2. ? 3. ∠G≅∠J 3. ? 4. ∠HKJ≅∠GKF 4. ? 5. ? 5. ?

Definition:

AA:

If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.

Description:

Given that HJ¯JF¯,HG¯FG¯.

To Prove: ΔHJKΔFGK

If two lines are perpendicular, then they form a right angle. Hence, the angles G and J are right angles.

It is known that all right angles are congruent. So that GJ.

If two angles are vertical angles, then they are congruent. That is, HKJFKG
