Chapter 3 - Section 3.1 - Congruent Triangles - Exercises - Page 143: 11

Answer

We would use method AAS to prove triangles congruent.

Work Step by Step

Here we find that 1) $\angle N\cong\angle S$ 2) $\angle M\cong\angle Q$ 3) $\overline{MP}\cong\overline{QR}$ There are 2 pairs of congruent angles and a pair of congruent sides but the congruent sides are not included by the congruent angles. Therefore, we would use method AAS to prove triangles congruent.
