Isosceles vs equilateral

Isosceles vs Equilateral

  • What is an isosceles triangle?

  • What is an equilateral triangle?

  • Label the following on the diagram below:

    • Legs

    • Base

    • Base angle

    • Vertex angle


Isosceles triangle theorem

Isosceles Triangle Theorem

  • If two sides of a triangle are congruent, then the angles opposite those sides are congruent.


Converse of the isosceles theorem

Converse of the Isosceles Theorem

  • If two angles of a triangle are congruent, then the sides opposite those angles are congruent.


Theorem 4 5

Theorem 4-5

  • If a line bisects the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle, then the line is also perpendicular bisector of the base.


Corollary 4 3

Corollary (4-3)

  • If a triangle is equilateral, then the triangle is equiangular


Corollary 4 4

Corollary (4-4)

  • If a triangle is equiangular, then the triangle is equilateral
