Yes. If you have an isosceles triangle standing up on the unequal side, then
the line segment from the top vertex perpendicular to the base is all of these.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Is the altitude of a triangle always the perpendicular bisector?


Can an altitude be a perpendicular bisector?

Yes - the altitude of an equilateral triangle is perpendicular to the side chosen as the base and bisects that side and the opposite angle. Also, the altitude of an isosceles triangle when measured from the third side (the side that is not equal to the other two sides) is a perpendicular bisector of the base and also bisects the opposite angle.

Can the angle bisector of a triangle also be the perpendicular bisector?

Yes. The bisector of one angle of a triangle is the perpendicular bisector of theopposite side if the bisected angle is the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle,or any angle of an equilateral triangle.

Perpendicular bisector of a triangle?

Is a line that bisects a side of a triangle and is perpendicular to that side.

Is the altitude of an isosceles triangle the angle bisector of the vertex?

Yes, provided that the base is not one of the 2 equal sides. And it's also the perpendicular bisector of the base.

How does the perpendicular bisector affect the vertex angle of an isoceles triangle?

The perpendicular bisector bisects the angle at the vertex.

What are the 4 particular lines for a triangle?

Maybe they are bisector, median, altitude and the middle perpendicular. (I hope I put it in English right :)

Is a perpendicular bisector always an angle bisector?

thank goodness for my math teacher, norm! he said only in an isosceles triangle. The bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle is perpendicular to the base! =)

Could the median of a triangle be the perpendicular bisector?

Yes in equilateral triangle.

What triangle must always have at least one angle bisector that is also a perpendicular bisector?

any isosceles triangle

What is the name of the line that is perpendicular to a side of the triangle at the midpoint of the side?

A perpendicular bisector

Is the altitude of a triangle perpendicular?
