Concept : 1 Mark
Process : 2 Marks
Proof : 1 Mark

We have,

PQT = RQU and, TQS = UQS

PQT + TQS = RQU + UQS [Adding both angles]

PQS = RQS..........(i)

Thus, In Δ PQS and Δ RQS,
PQ = RQ [Given]
PQS = RQS [From (i)]
and, QS = QS [Common side]

Δ PQS Δ RQS [SAS congruence criterion]

QPS = QRS [C.P.C.T.C]

QPT = QRU............(ii)

Now, In Δ QPT and Δ QRS,
QP = QR [Given]
PQT = RQU [Given]
QPT = QRU [From (ii)]

ΔQPT ΔQRU
QT = QU
