SSS congruence condition

Triangles are congruent if all three sides in one triangle are congruent to the corresponding sides in the other

Q-1 In an isosceles triangle ABC, with , the bisectors of and intersect each other at O. Join A to O. Show that :

1. AO bisects

Solution:

Given,, the bisectors of and intersect each other at O

1. Since ABC is an isosceles with

(Angle bisectors.) (Side opposite to the equal angles are equal.)

2. In and , (Given) (Common) (Proved above)

Therefore, by SSS congruence condition.

(by Corresponding Part of Congruent Triangles)

Thus, AO bisects

Q-2 In ΔABC, AD is the perpendicular bisector of BC (see Fig). Show that ΔABC is an isosceles triangle in which .

Solution:

Given, AD is the perpendicular bisector of BC To show,

Proof,In and , (Common) (AD is the perpendicular bisector)

Therefore (By SAS congruence condition). (By Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles)
