#### Answer:

(1)

In ∆MST and ∆TBM,

side MS ≅ side TB (given)

∠MST ≅ ∠TBM (right angle)

side MT is common

∴ By Hypotenuse-side test, ∆MST ≅ ∆TBM.

∴ side ST ≅ side MB,

∠SMT ≅ ∠BTM,

∠STM ≅ ∠BMT.

(2)

In ∆PRQ and ∆TRS,

side PR ≅ side RT (given)

side QR ≅ side RS (given)

∠PRQ ≅ ∠SRT (vertically opposite angles)

∴ By SAS test, ∆PRQ ≅ ∆TRS.

∴ side PQ ≅ side ST,

∠QPR ≅ ∠STR,

∠PQR ≅ ∠TSR.

(3)

In ∆DHC and ∆DFC,

∠DCH ≅ ∠DCF (given)

∠DHC ≅ ∠DFC (given)

side DC is common

∴ By AAS test, ∆DHC ≅ ∆DFC.

∴ side DH ≅ side DF,

side HC ≅ side FC,

∠HDC ≅ ∠FDC.

#### Question 2:

In the adjacent figure, seg AD ≌ seg EC Which additional information is needed to show that ∆ ABD and ∆ EBC will be congruent by A-A-S test ?

#### Answer:

In ∆ABD and ∆EBC,

side AD ≅ side EC (given)

∠ABD ≅ ∠EBC (vertically opposite angles)

∴ To show that ∆ ABD and ∆ EBC will be congruent by A-A-S test, one of the following is needed:

∠BAD ≅ ∠BCE

or

∠BDA ≅ ∠BEC.
