Line \(SD\) is a line of symmetry for figure \(AXPDZHMS\). Noah says that \(AXPDS\) is congruent to \(HMZDS\) because sides \(AX\) and \(HM\) are corresponding.
- Why is Noah’s congruence statement incorrect?
- Write a correct congruence statement for the pentagons.
FIgure \(MBJKGH\) is the image of figure \(AFEKJB\) after being rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise about point \(K\). Draw a segment in figure \(AFEKJB\) to create a quadrilateral. Draw the image of the segment when rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise about point \(K\).
