3.8 - The HL Postulate By: David Galaydick Mike Pettinato Matt Pettinato

2
What is it? HL stands for hypotenuse leg. It is used for proving right triangles congruent. It can be used to prove something congruent, but it is only treated as a postulate. Only applies to right triangles. No other types.

3
The Postulate T T T The postulate states: “If there exists a correspondence between the vertices of two right triangles such that the hypotenuse and a leg of one triangle are congruent to the corresponding parts of the other triangle, the two right triangles are congruent.” CCCCan also be stated as HL (*corresponding steps*) in proofs.

4
Using the HL Postulate The desired triangles must first be proven as right triangles. (If a triangle contains a right angle, then it is a right triangle.) Hypotenuse – The longest side of a triangle opposite of a right angle. Hypotenuses of each triangle must be proven congruent. Any leg of the two triangles must be proven congruent. Can also be the leg
