What is it?
A line that bisects a segment and is perpendicular to that same segment.
* Any point that is on the perpendicular bisector is equidistant to both of the endpoints of the segment which is perpendicular to.
*If the point is equidistant from both of the endpoints of the segment, then it is a perpendicular bisector.
A perpendicular bisector is the locus of all points in a plane that are equidistant from the endpoints of a segment.
Are both congruent.
1. Given that AC= 25.5, BD=20, and BC= 25.5. Find AB.
2. Given that m is the perpendicular bisector of AB and BC= 30 . Find AC.
Given that m is the perpendicular bisector of AB , AC= 4a, and BC= 2a+26. Find BC.
a=13 plug in both equations
What is it?
A ray or any line that cuts an angle into two congruent angles.
* Any point that lies on the angle bisector is equidistant to both of the sides of the angle.
* If it is equidistant to both sides of the angle, then it lies on the angle bisector.
MUST: the point always has to lie on the interior of the angle.
Angle point that Angle bisector
lies on the bisector
is equidistant to both
sides of the angle
Given that BD bisects ∠ABC and
CD = 21, find AD.
2. Given that AD =65 , CD= 65 and m∠ABC = 50˚, find m∠CBD.
3. Given that DA=DC , m∠DBC= (10y+3)˚ , and m ∠DBA= (8y+10) ˚, find m∠DBC.
2y=7 y=3.5 plug in both equations.
It is the point where all the 3 perpendicular bisectors of a triangle meet.
What makes it special?
It is the point of concurrency and it is equidistant to all 3 vertices.
1. Knowing what circumcenter is, it would help you if you are a business person to know a strategic place in between 3 cities to place your business. That way it would be located in the same distance from all 3 cities for customers to come.
F is the circumcenter in this equilateral triangle. The circumcenter is on the inside of the triangle.
2.In an acute the circumcenter is on the inside of the triangle
C is the circumcenter
3.In a right the circumcenter is on the midpoint of the hypotenuse
D is the circumcenter
4.In an obtuse the circumcenter is on the outside of the triangle.
F is the circumcenter
Concurrency of Angle bisectors
Of a triangle theorem
The angle bisectors of a triangle meet at a point that is equidistant from the three sides of the triangle.
What is the distance from H to G, if F to H is 10 cm?
10cm from H to G
2. H to E is 15cm , then what would be H to G doubled?
Real: H to G would be 15cm and doubled would be 30cm
H in this triangle is what?
The incenter of triangle ABC
2. If you want to open a new restaurant in town you have to place it at the incenter of three major highways so people can go to your restaurant.
3. If the distance from K to P is 2cm, what is the distance from P to L?
From P to L = 2cm
1. P is the incenter
Median of a triangle
Is the segment that goes from the vertex of a triangle to the opposite midpoint
Ex. 2: all medians are congruent. Shown in yellow
The point where the medians of a triangle intersect.
Is the center of balance. The distance from the vertex to the centroid is the double the distance from the centroid to the opposite side.
AP= 2/3 AY
1. Balance a triangular piece of glass on a triangular coffee table.
2. G is the centroid.
The medians of a triangle intersect at a point that is 2/3 of the distance from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side
A segment that goes from the vertex perpendicular to the line containing the opposite side.
Where the altitudes of a triangle intersect.
Concurrency of Altitudes line containing the opposite side.
Concurrency of Altitudes of a Triangle Theorem
The lines containing the altitudes of a triangle are concurrent
Option line containing the opposite side.
M line containing the opposite side.idsegments:
A segment that joins the midpoints of two sides of the triangle.
Every triangle has 3midsegments that form the midsegment triangle.
Midsegment Theorem The segment joining the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side, and is half the length of the third side.
Option #7 line containing the opposite side.
Side line containing the opposite side.– Angle Relationship
In any triangle the longest side is always opposite from the largest angle. The small side is opposite from a small angle.
Option #8 line containing the opposite side.
Exterior angle inequality line containing the opposite side.
The exterior angle is bigger (grater) than the non-adjacent interior angles of the triangle .
TELL WHEATHER A TRIANGLE CAN HAVE THE SIDES WITH THE GIVEN LENGTHS. EXPLAIN
3,5,7 2. 4, 6.5,11 3. 7, 4, 5
3 + 5 > 7 4 +6.5> 11 5+4 > 7
8>7 10.5>11 9>7
YES, the sum of each NO. by the 3rd triangle Yes , 5+4 is grater than 7 so
Pair of the lengths is inequality thm. A triangle there can be a triangle.
Grater than the 3rd <. Cannot have these side lengths.
Triangle Inequality Theorem The sum of the lengths of two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side.
Option #9 LENGTHS. EXPLAIN
How LENGTHS. EXPLAINtowriteanindirectproof
Examples: LENGTHS. EXPLAIN
PROVE: IF A>0 THAN 1/A >0
Assume a>0 than 1/a<0
(a) 1/a <0a
a 1 <0
3. Therefore if a>0 than 1/a>0
PROVE: A SCALENE TRIANGLE CANNOT HAVE TWO CONGRUENT ANGLES
Assume a scalene triangle can have two congruent sides
a triangle with 2 congruent angles… deff. of an isosceles triangle
Deff. Of isosceles and scalene triangles… therefore a scalene triangle cannot have two congruent angles.
PROVE: A TRIANGLE CANNOT HAVE 2 RIGHT ANGLES
assume a triangle has 2 right angles <1+<2…. GIVEN
M<1 =M<2 = 90.. DEFF OF RT. <
M<1+M<2+M<3=180 …..TRIANGLE + THM
M<3= 0 CONTRADICTION
So a triangle cannot have 2 right angles.
Option #19 LENGTHS. EXPLAIN
HINGE THEOREM LENGTHS. EXPLAIN
If 2 triangles have 2 sides that are congruent, but the third side is not congruent, then the triangle with the large included angle has the longer side.
(What changes is the incidence and the side….) Theorem:
If two sides of one triangle are congruent to the two sides of another triangle and the third sides are not congruent, then the larger included angle is across from the longer third side. Converse :

Both legs of the triangle are congruent and the length of the hypotenuse is the length of the two legs √2
