Indirect Proof At first, you assume that the statement is false and then show that this causes a contradiction with facts Also called a proof by contradiction Writing an Indirect Proof 1. Identify the conjecture to be proven 2. Assume the opposite of the conclusion is true 3. Use direct reasoning to show that the asssumption leads to a contradiction 4. Conclude that since the assumption is false, the original conjecture must be true
Hinge Theorem If the two sides of two triangles are congruent but the third side is not congruent then the triangle with the longer side will have a larger included angle.
Converse of Hinge Theorem If two sides of one triangle are congruent to two sides of another triangle and the third sides are not congruent, then the larger included angle is across from the longer third side.
