Formal Proofs
I mean the ones that have 2 columns, one for Statements and one for reasons.

Simply put, I suck at them and would rather snort Drain-O while Beavers chew at my toes.:mad:

Really, anyone, tell me all you know. How do I know how many statements and reasons will I need to write one? That's one thing I don't know. I tried googling for help on them, but didn't find anything. I just need help concerning everything about them.. To show you where I am, I know the about SSS, SAS, ASA, and AAS Postulate, and the LL LA HA HL and the fifth theorem that I don't remember it's name. Probably BC.

Heeelp.

If you are commenting on someone's post in another thread, then you should continue that conversation there. I have no clue what you are babbling about.

No, I meant to start a new thread. In short, I need help concerning writing formal proofs. I don't need help with a specific one, I need help with them in general. Tips, suggestions, etc. I looked in google for something like that, but couldn't find anything.

Then please tell us the nature of what you are trying to work with. From the looks of it, Plane Geometry?

Yes, plain geometry. Mainly they want me to write FP's to show that triangle ABC is congruent to triangle XYZ.
