Use the given plan to write a two-column proof. 17.  Given : BE ≅ CE , DE ≅ AE Prove : A̅B̅ ≅ CD

D

Plan : Use the definition of congruent segments to write the given information in terms of lengths. Then use the Segment Addition Postulate to show that AB = CD and thus A̅B̅ ≅ CD .

are complementary, both pairs of angle measures add to 90º. Use substitution to show that the sums of both pairs are equal. Since ∠ 3 ≅ ∠ 4, their measures are equal. Use the Subtraction Property of Equality and the definition of congruent angles to conclude that ∠ 1 ≅ ∠ 2.
