10. Given: ∠1 and ∠3 are complementary, and ∠2 and ∠4 are complementary. ∠3 ≅ ∠4
Prove: ∠1 ≅ ∠2
Plan: Since ∠1 and ∠3 are complementary and ∠2 and ∠4 are complementary, both pairs of
angle measures add to 90°. Use substitution to show that the sums of both pairs are equal.
Since ∠3 ≅ ∠ 4, their measures are equal. Use the Subtraction Property of Equality and the
definition of congruent angles to conclude that ∠1 ≅ ∠2.
