Question

Explain if triangle zhy congruent to jhi Justify your answer given the following information: HY = 3, YZ = 6, HZ = 7 and YI = 3, IJ = 12, HJ = 14

1 Answer

  • Here, If triangle ZHY & JHI are congruent then, ratio of corresponding sides would be equal.
    HY / HI = YZ/IJ = HZ / HJ
    Apply the values, 
    6/12 = 7/14 
    1/2= 1/2

    Since, given sides are proportional, Triangles are Congruent here

    Hope this helps!
