Triangle Congruence: CPCTC
1. Heike Dreschler set the Woman’s World Junior Record for the
long jump in 1983. She jumped about 23.4 feet. The diagram
shows two triangles and a pond. Explain whether Heike
could have jumped the pond along path BA or along
path CA.

have equal lengths, so the diagonals
bisect each other.

2. Possible answer: From the definition of a
rhombus, IH is congruent to FG , IF is
congruent to GH , and IH is parallel to
FG . By Alternate Interior Angles
Theorem, GFH is congruent to IHF
and FGI is congruent to HIG.
Therefore FGJ is congruent to HIJ by
ASA. By CPCTC, FJ is congruent to HJ
and GJ is congruent to IJ . So FJI is
congruent to GHJ by SSS. But HIJ is
also congruent to FIJ by SSS. And so
all four triangles are congruent by the
Transitive Property of Congruence. By
CPCTC and the Segment Addition
Postulate, FH is congruent to GI . By
CPCTC and the Linear Pair Theorem,
FJI, GJF, HJG, and IJH are right
angles. So FH and GI are
perpendicular. By CPCTC, GFH, IFH,
GHF, and IHF are congruent, so FH
bisects IFG and IHG. Similar
reasoning shows that GI bisects FGH
and FIH.
Practice B
1. Possible answer: Because DCE 
BCA by the Vertical s Thm. the
triangles are congruent by ASA, and each
side in ABC has the same length as its
corresponding side in EDC. Heike
could jump about 23 ft. The distance
along path BA is 20 ft because BA
corresponds with DE, so Heike could
have jumped this distance. The distance
along path CA is 25 ft because CA
corresponds with CE, so Heike could not
have jumped this distance.

Practice C
1. Possible answer: From the definition of a
parallelogram, DC is congruent to AB
and DC is parallel to AB . By the
Alternate Interior Angles Theorem, BAC
is congruent to DCA and CDB is
congruent to ABD. Therefore ABE is
congruent to CDE by ASA. By CPCTC,
DE is congruent to BE and AE is
congruent to CE . Congruent segments
