### Problem 2

Han wrote a proof that triangle \(BCD\) is congruent to triangle \(DAB\). Han's proof is incomplete. How can Han fix his proof?

- Line \(AB\) is parallel to line \(DC\) and cut by transversal \(DB\). So angles \(CDB\) and \(ABD\) are alternate interior angles and must be congruent.
- Side \(DB\) is congruent to side \(BD\) because they're the same segment.
- Angle \(A\) is congruent to angle \(C\) because they're both right angles.
- By the Angle-Side-Angle Triangle Congruence Theorem, triangle \(BCD\) is congruent to triangle \(DAB\).
