    Triangle Proof Help

    Could anybody help me with the statements and reasons? Thanks so much!

             V
            * * *
           *  *  *
          *    *  * Z
         *     *   *
        *      *  * *

      *************** ********
      W        Y     X

    Given: Triangle VWX, Line VY bisects Angle WVX, and Line VZ is congruent to Line ZY

    Prove: (VZ over VX = WY Over WX)
    VZ = WY
    ͞VX WX

    Re: Triangle Proof Help

    The relationship you have given would be true if the triangles were similar. How could you go about showing that they are similar?

    HINT:
    Let angle XVW = 2v; then v = angle ZVY = angle ZYV, forcing angle XZY = 2v
