5.03 Proving triangles congruent

Interactive practice questions

In the diagram, $MQ$MQ is perpendicular to $PR$PR, and $\Delta MPR$ΔMPR is isosceles. a

What is the measure of $\angle MQR$MQR?

b

From the information given, we know $\triangle MPQ$MPQ and $\triangle MRQ$MRQ are congruent because:

they have three pairs of congruent sides.

A

they have two pairs of congruent sides and the non-included angle is congruent.

B

they have two pairs of congruent sides and the included angle is congruent.

C

they have three pairs of congruent angles.

D

they are both right triangles with hypotenuse and one leg the same length.

E

they have three pairs of congruent sides.

A

they have two pairs of congruent sides and the non-included angle is congruent.

B

they have two pairs of congruent sides and the included angle is congruent.
