    Great the first time in along time I don't have my book with me. Consider the irony!!! I can't believe I have a B- in the class!

    We just started geometry, but my teacher is weird so all we're doing is coloring shapes. I feel like i'm in pre-school.

    I'm in Geometry Honors, but proofs are one of the hardest things for me. I might be able to help if you post up the question :)

    I love geometry...so much better than algebra II, which I'm in now. I tutor my friend in this class, so I'd love to be of as much help as you need.

    Ok I have a quest.
    Given:segment FB is perp. 2 seg. AD,seg. GC is perp. 2 AD,seg. FB is congruent 2 seg. GC, seg. AE is congruent 2 seg. DE
    Prove seg AB is congruent 2 seg. DC
    You use the AAS (angle angle side) post. and the last step is CPCTC the shape is think a triangle roof split in 2 so there are 3 parts 2 tri. at the ends and in the middle is a square but the top is slanted

    Well....if i actually understood that problem, but I don't actually understand the given...how exactly does it divey up? But congruency is one of the easiest sections of geom.
