Row Game Practice!

-Each row is a team-Everyone gets a white board and marker-I will check first person’s answer. If it’s correct, your team gets 7 points!-If first person’s answer is not correct, I will check everyone else’s in your row. Each correct answer is 1 point for your team.-Switch seats so everyone gets a chance to be the 1st person-Winning team gets candy!

Find the values of a and b that yields congruent

triangles

a = 6 b = 15

Quick Review!Quick Review!

Given ABC is a triangle, find the measure of each angle. Then classify the triangle by its angles and sides.mA = 2x + 5°, mB = 3x – 15° and m C = 4x + 1o°Right

Isosceles

Quick Review!

Find the measure of the exterior angle.

120°

Getting into formal proofs…
