Hi Codyh,
we are given the that angle 1 + angle 2 =180 ==> supplementary
and also angle 3+angle 4 =180 ====> also supplementary
since angle 1 is congruent to angle 4
then angle 3+angle 1 =180
but angle 2+angle 1 = 180 as well
it must be then angle 2 is congruent to angle 3

Assume that a + b = x and that x is rational. Then b = x – a = x + (–a). x + (–a) is rational because _______________________. However, it was stated that b is an irrational number. This is a contradiction. Therefore, the assumption that x is rational in the equation a + b = x must be incorrect, and x should be an irrational number. In conclusion, the sum of a rational number and an irrational number is irrational. Which of the following best completes the proof? it is the sum of two rational numbers. it is the sum of two irrational numbers. it represents a non-terminating, non-repeating decimal. its terms cannot be combined.

Because triangle XYZ is a right triangle, the side lengths must satisfy the Pythagorean theorem, a2 + b2 = c2, which in this isosceles triangle becomes a2 + a2 = c2. By combining like terms, 2a2 = c2. Which final step will prove that the length of the hypotenuse, c, is times the length of each leg? Substitute values for a and c into the original Pythagorean theorem equation. Divide both sides of the equation by two, then determine the principal square root of both sides of the equation. Determine the principal square root of both sides of the equation. Divide both sides of the equation by 2.
