Not enough information

Work Step by Step

1. One angle from each triangle is marked as a right angle, so the two right angles are congruent. 2. One line segment in each triangle is marked congruent. This line is opposite the right angle in each triangle; therefore, these are the hypotenuses of each triangle. Now, we have one angle and the hypotenuse of one right triangle congruent to an angle and the hypotenuse of another right triangle; therefore, we do not have enough information to prove that the triangles are congruent.
