What of a triangle can split an angle of the triangle into two congruent parts?

a perpendicular line.


How do you describe triangles by the sides?

Scalene Triangle- a triangle with no congruent sides Isosceles Triangle- a triangle with two congruent sides Equilateral Triangle- a triangle with three congruent sides


Which triangle with two sides perpendicular and no two sides congruent?

That would be a right triangle. The perpendicular lines make up the right angle.


What does a perpendicular bisector of a triangle split into two congruent parts?

That will depend on what type of triangle it is as for example if it is an isosceles triangle then it will form two congruent right angle triangles.


What does a perpendicular bisector cut of a triangle into two congruent parts?

side


A perpendicular bisector of a triangle splits what into two congruent parts?

It splits one side of the triangle into two congruent parts.


Describe if sides of a triangle are parallel or congruent?

They can never be parallel. They may or may not be congruent, depending on the specific triangle.


Is it true that the perpendicular bisector of the base of an isosceles triangle splits the triangle into two congruent triangles?

Yes, it is true.


How can you prove a triangle ABC is isosceles if angle BAD is congruent to angle CAD and line AD is perpendicular to line Bc?

Given: AD perpendicular to BC; angle BAD congruent to CAD Prove: ABC is isosceles Plan: Principle a.s.a Proof: 1. angle BAD congruent to angle CAD (given) 2. Since AD is perpendicular to BC, then the angle BDA is congruent to the angle CDA (all right angles are congruent). 3. AD is congruent to AD (reflexive property) 4. triangle BAD congruent to triangle CAD (principle a.s.a) 5. AB is congruent to AC (corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent) 6. triangle ABC is isosceles (it has two congruent sides)


Angle bisector of angleA of triangleABC is perpendicular to BC prove it is isosceles?

Let D represent the point on BC where the bisector of A intersects BC. Because AD bisects angle A, angle BAD is congruent to CAD. Because AD is perpendicular to BC, angle ADB is congruent to ADC (both are right angles). The line segment is congruent to itself. By angle-side-angle (ASA), we know that triangle ADB is congruent to triangle ADC. Therefore line segment AB is congruent to AC, so triangle ABC is isosceles.


Does a scalene triangle have congruent angles?

No, An equilateral triangle has 3 congruent angles, an isosceles triangle has 2 congruent angles, a scalene triangle has no congruent angles.


If a triangle has one congruent side then is it a scalene triangle?

if it has one congruent side it is a scalene triangle. if it has a pair of congruent sides it is an isosceles triangle. if all the sides are congruent it is an equilateral triangle
