Isosceles Triangles

  2. 2. ISOSCELES <br />TRIANGLES<br />
  3. 3. Parts of an Isosceles Triangle<br />The congruent sides of an isosceles triangle are the legs.<br />The third side is the base.<br />The two congruent sides form the vertex angle.<br />The other two angles are the base angles.<br />vertex angle<br />leg<br />leg<br />base angles<br />base<br />
  4. 4. pg 161 <br />The bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle is the perpendicular bisector of the base.<br /> If AC BC and CD<br /> bisects ACB, then<br /> CD┴AB and CD<br /> bisects AB.<br />C<br />A<br />B<br />
  5. 5. CONVERSE OF ISOSCELES TRIANGLE THEOREM<br /> pg 161 <br />If two angles of a triangle are congruent, then the sides opposite the angles are congruent.<br />If A B, <br /> then AC BC. <br />C<br />A<br />B<br />
