1. 4.1 Detours and Midpoints Homework ProofProblem #18

2. 18) Given: AD  DB AE  BC CD  ED Prove: Δ AFB is isosceles A B F E C D

3. 18) Given: AD  DB AE  BC CD  ED Prove: Δ AFB is isosceles A B F E C D

4. From our givens: ΔAED ΔBCD by : SSS A B Now we have 3 pairs of corresponding congruent angles! E C D For our next pair of Δ’s we will need: ∡EDA  ∡CDB by CPCTC

5. We have: ED  DC AD  DB and PART of the included angle between those two sides! A B 2 pairs of congruent sides We need the rest of ∡EDB and ∡CDA E C ∡ADB  ∡ADB by REFLEXIVE PROPERTY That give us . . . ∡EDB  ∡CDA by ADDITION D From these triangles, we get sides EB  AC by CPCTC ΔEDB ΔCDA by SAS

6. We are getting closer to ΔAFB! A B For this pair of Δ’s, we already have: AE  BC (Given) EB  CA (CPCTC) F This means: ∡ABE  ∡BAC by CPCTC E C We have another EASY side! AB  AB by Reflexive Property Now we have proven: ΔEABΔCBA by SSS Look what we have! 

7. A B It’s time for: F Theorem 21: (Angle-Side Theorem) If two angles of a triangle are congruent, the sides opposite the angles are congruent. So now we can say: AF  BF Reason? IF , then And for our final “PROVE!” Statement: Δ AFB is ISOSCELES Reason:If a triangle has at least two congruent sides, then it is isosceles byDEFINITION!
