Altitude of triangle

Give triangle of ABC, altibute is AB and base is BC

Give Altitude Triangle of ABC

In geometry, an altitude of a triangle is a line segment through a vertex and perpendicular to (i.e. forming a right angle with) a line containing the base (the opposite side of the triangle). This line containing the opposite side is called the extended base of the altitude.

Q-4 BE and CF are two equal altitudes of a triangle ABC. Using RHS congruence rule, prove that the triangle ABC is isosceles

Solution:

A Triangle ABC

Given,BE and CF are two equal altitudes.

  • In and , (Altitudes) (Common)(Common)

  • Therefore, by RHS congruence condition.

  • Now, (by Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles)Thus, as sides opposite to the equal angles are equal.

Q-5 ABC is an isosceles triangle with. Draw to show that

Solution:

Isosceles Triangle ABC with AB=AC

  • Given,In (AP is altitude) (Given) (Common line)

  • Therefore, by Right Angle-Hypostenuse-Side congruence condition.

  • Thus,(by Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles)
