    1. Write a two-column proof.

      1. Proof congruence and congruent triangles
        Given: AC\overline{AC}\congBD\overline{BD}, AD\overline{AD}\congBC\overline{BC},  CAD\angle\ CAD\cong CBD\angle\ CBD,  ADC\angle\ ADC\cong BCD\angle\ BCD
        Prove:  ACD\triangle\ ACD\cong BDC\triangle\ BDC
      2. Given: XC\overline{XC}\congZC\overline{ZC}
