  1. TriangleInequality(Triangle Inequality Theorem)

  2. Objectives: • recall the primary parts of a triangle • show that in any triangle, the sum of the lengths of any two sides is greater than the length of the third side • solve for the length of an unknown side of a triangle given the lengths of the other two sides. • solve for the range of the possible length of an unknown side of a triangle given the lengths of the other two sides • determine whether the following triples are possible lengths of the sides of a triangle

  3. Triangle Inequality Theorem B • The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side. AB + BC > AC AB + AC > BC AC + BC > AB C A

  4. Is it possible for a triangle to have sides with the given lengths? Explain. a. 3 ft, 6 ft and 9 ft • 3 + 6 > 9 b. 5 cm, 7 cm and 10 cm • 5 + 7 > 10 • 7 + 10 > 5 • 5 + 10 > 7 c. 4 in, 4 in and 4 in • Equilateral: 4 + 4 > 4 (NO) (YES) (YES)

  5. Solve for the length of an unknown side (X) of a triangle given the lengths of the other two sides. The value of x: a + b > x > |a - b| a. 6 ft and 9 ft • 9 + 6 > x, x < 15 • x + 6 > 9, x > 3 • x + 9 > 6, x > – 3 • 15 > x > 3 b. 5 cm and 10 cm c. 14 in and 4 in 15 > x > 5 28 > x > 10

  6. Solve for the range of the possible value/s of x, if the triples represent the lengths of the three sides of a triangle. • Examples: a. x, x + 3 and 2x b. 3x – 7, 4x and 5x – 6 c. x + 4, 2x – 3 and 3x d. 2x + 5, 4x – 7 and 3x + 1

  7. TRIANGLE INEQUALITY(ASIT and SAIT)

  8. OBJECTIVES: • recall the Triangle Inequality Theorem • state and identify the inequalities relating sides and angles • differentiate ASIT (Angle – Side Inequality Theorem) from SAIT (Side – Angle Inequality Theorem) and vice-versa • identify the longest and the shortest sides of a triangle given the measures of its interior angles • identify the largest and smallest angle measures of a triangle given the lengths of its sides

  9. INEQUALITIES RELATING SIDES AND ANGLES: ANGLE-SIDE INEQUALITY THEOREM: • If two sides of a triangle are not congruent, then the larger angle lies opposite the longer side. If AC > AB, then mB > mC. SIDE-ANGLE INEQUALITY THEOREM: • If two angles of a triangle are not congruent, then the longer side lies opposite the larger angle. If mB > mC, then AC > AB. C B A

  11. TRIANGLE INEQUALITY(Isosceles Triangle Theorem)

  12. Objectives: • recall the definition of isosceles triangle • recall ASIT and SAIT • solve exercises using Isosceles Triangle Theorem (ITT) • prove statements on ITT • recall the definition of angle bisector and perpendicular bisector

  13. Isosceles Triangle: • a triangle with at least two congruent sides Parts of an Isosceles : Base: AC Legs: AB and BC Vertex angle: B Base angles: A and C B A C

  14. Isosceles Triangle Theorem (ITT): • If two sides of a triangle are congruent, then the angles opposite the sides are also congruent. If AB  BC, then A  C. B A C

  15. Converse of ITT: • If two angles of a triangle are congruent, then the sides opposite the angles are also congruent. If A  C, then AB  BC. B A C

  16. Vertex Angle Bisector-Isosceles Theorem: (VABIT) • The bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle is the perpendicular bisector of the base. If BD is the angle bisector of the base angle of ABC, then AD  DC and mBDC = 90. B A C D
