Write a two-column proof.
Given: $\stackrel{―}{MN}\stackrel{\sim }{=}\stackrel{―}{MP},\stackrel{―}{NO}\stackrel{\sim }{=}\stackrel{―}{PO}$
Prove: $\mathrm{\angle }N\stackrel{\sim }{=}\mathrm{\angle }P$ You can still ask an expert for help

Step 1
Given:
$\stackrel{―}{MN}\stackrel{\sim }{=}\stackrel{―}{MP},\stackrel{―}{NO}\stackrel{\sim }{=}\stackrel{―}{PO}$ To prove:
$\mathrm{\angle }N\stackrel{\sim }{=}\mathrm{\angle }P$
Step 2
Thus, The reflexive property of congruence,
$\stackrel{―}{MO}\stackrel{\sim }{=}\stackrel{―}{MO}$
Now Triangles are congruent if all three sides in one triangle are congruent to the corresponding sides in the other.
By SSS congruence,
$\mathrm{△}MNO\stackrel{\sim }{=}\mathrm{△}MPO$
Corresponding parts of congruent triangle (CPCT).
Their corresponding sides are equal and angles are equal.
Therefore, $\mathrm{\angle }N\stackrel{\sim }{=}\mathrm{\angle }P$
