1)

Segment AG is congruent to segment MR.

Note that when we say ABCD is congruent to EFGH, there is a direct "letter congruency".

This means AB must be congruent to EF; BC to FG; CD to GH... etc.

2)

SSS Congruence Postulate

Note that 2 sides are said to be congruent.

The third side happen to be a common side (PS), so it is obvious that this side will be congruent as well. Hence, we can apply SSS.

3)

ASA Congruence Postulate

Note that angle TSW = angle XYW and angle STW = angle YXW due to alternate interior angles, which we could apply as ST is parallel to YX.

It is also given that ST is congruent to YX, so we can apply ASA.

4)

HL Congruence Theorem

This is clear since the corresponding hypotenuse and a corresponding leg are congruent.

5)

After magnifying, I still can't read the angle in your image.

In any case, this is an isosceles triangle.

Thus, you can subtract the given angle from 180 degrees, and then divide the resulting angle by 2.

6)

180 - 34 - 34

= 112 degrees

The length is just there to confuse you.

One base angles is 34 degrees, the other base angle must also be 34 degrees since this is an isosceles triangle. Thus, we just subtract 34 degrees twice from 180 degrees, which is the sum of the interior angles of a triangle.

7)

AAS Congruence Theorem

Note that two pairs of congruent angles have been given.

AC is a common side, so clearly it is congruent as well for both triangles.

There is no evidence or information given to point out that any of the other sides are congruent.

Thus we can apply only AAS.

8)

PNQ is congruent to NPR by the SAS Congruence Postulate

Clearly you can't use SSS or HL here, since you are trying to prove the diagonals are equal.

If you use SSS or HL, you will be assuming that the diagonals are equal even before proving it is true.

9)

They are always congruent.

You just proven this in question 8).

10)

square

Note that while a rhombus have perpendicular bisecting diagonals, the diagonals are not congruent.

11)

(180 - 80) / 2

= 100 / 2

= 50 degrees

12)

18cm, 7cm, 14cm

Note that the sum of the two shorter sides of a triangle must always be longer than the longest side.

If the two shorter sides add up to the longest side, you will just have a flat straight line consisting of all three sides.

If the two shorter sides add up to less than the longest side, these two sides cannot possibly meet each other.

5)

m ∠ A is same as m ∠ B since it is isosceles triangle.

x + x + 99° = 180°

2x = 180° - 99°

2x = 81°

x = 40.5°

6)

34° + 34° + vertex = 180° ----> vertex = 112°
