Prove triangle congruence


Prove that triangle, M, N, Q, \cong, triangle, P, N, Q.
Triangle P N Q and triangle M N Q are shown sharing the line N Q for one of their sides. The Angle N in triangle P N Q and triangle M N Q is thirty degrees for both. The Angle Q in triangle M N Q and triangle N P Q is one hundred seven degrees for both.
1m, angle, M, N, Q, equals, m, angle, P, N, Q, equals, 30, degreeGiven
2m, angle, M, Q, N, equals, m, angle
equals, 107, degree
They're lengths of the same segment.
