Drag and drop a statement or reason to each box to complete the proof.

Given: PQ¯¯¯¯¯≅PR¯¯¯¯¯

Prove: ∠Q≅∠R

 

        Statement                                                                             Reason

PQ¯¯¯¯¯ ≅ PR¯¯¯¯¯                                                                   Given

Draw PM¯¯¯¯¯¯ so that M is the midpoint of QR¯¯¯¯¯ .             Two points determine a line.

 (                                    )                                                                Definition of midpoint

PM¯¯¯¯¯¯ ≅ PM¯¯¯¯¯¯                                                                (                                )

(                                    )                                                                 (                                 )

This might help you!
 

\(\overline{QM}\cong\overline{RM}\) Definition of midpoint
\(\overline{PM}\cong\overline{PM}\) Reflexive Property of Congruence
\(\triangle PQM\cong\triangle PRM\) Side-Side-Side Triangle Congruence Postulate

Simple;

PQR is an isosceles triangle, and Q and P are reflected over the one line of symmetry, which happens to be PM if M is the midpoint of PR.

Yes, you are right that the isosceles triangle theorem would end this problem in one step.
