A parallelogram is a figure which has its opposite sides to be equal and parallel. The missing reason in the proof is:
B. Substitution Angle Angle Postulate.
A parallelogram is a type of quadrilateral that has its opposite sides to be equal and parallel. The sum of its internal angles is [tex]360^{o}[/tex].
To prove that ∠ BAD ≅ ∠ DCB, we have:
Given parallelogram ABCD;
<BAC ≅ <ACD (alternate angle theorem)
<DAC ≅ <ACB (alternate angle theorem)
<BAC + <DAC = <BAD
Also,
<BCA + <DCA = <BCD
Therefore,
<BAD ≅ <DCB (Substitution Angle Angle Postulate)
Thus, the missing reason in the partial proof is:
option B. Substitution Angle Angle Postulate
