Objectives

- Use properties of isosceles triangles
- Use properties of equilateral triangles

Properties of Isosceles Triangles

- The formed by the ≅ sides is called the vertex angle.
- The two ≅ sides are called legs. The third side is called the base.
- The two s formed by the base and the legs are called thebase angles.

Isosceles Triangle Theorem

- Theorem 4.9If two sides of a ∆ are ≅, then the s opposite those sides are ≅ (if AC ≅ AB, then B ≅ C).

The Converse of Isosceles Triangle Theorem

- Theorem 4.10

If two s of a ∆ are ≅, then the sides opposite those s are ≅ (if B ≅ C, then AC ≅ AB).

Name two congruent segments (not indicated).

By the converse of the Isosceles Triangle Theorem, the sides opposite congruent angles are congruent. So,

Example 2:Answer:

Properties of Equilateral ∆s

- Corollary 4.3A ∆ is equilateral if it is equiangular.
- Corollary 4.4Each of an equilateral ∆measures 60°.

EFG is equilateral, and bisects bisectsFindand

Each angle of an equilateral triangle measures 60°.

Since the angle was bisected,

Example 3a:EFG is equilateral, and bisects bisectsFind

Example 3b:Linear pairs are supplementary.

Substitution

Subtract 75 from each side.

Answer: 105
