    Having Trouble With Proofs

    I have been having trouble understanding proofs and I always seem to mess up on them. Does anyone have any advice? This is mainly concerning proofs of congruent triangles, angles, etc. Thanks!

    Learrn the definitions and postulates! And by that, I mean learn the precise words. Proofs of theorems in mathematics use the exact words of definitons, postulates, and other theorems. The better you know them, the easier it is to fit the words into proofs.
