## espinozagabe 4 years ago I need a Journal Answer/Written Answer for this one: How do the Triangle-Angle Bisector Theorem and the Angle Bisector Theorem differ?

1. estudier

U asked this yesterday and I said that I thought they were the same thing.

2. espinozagabe

Yeah I know. But I don't think they are.

3. estudier

Why do you think that?

4. espinozagabe

Someone else mentioned something about the Triangle-Angle Bisector Theorem including an angle bisector.

5. estudier
6. espinozagabe

Hmm. I'll think about it more.

I'm reasonably sure about it, let's say.

11. espinozagabe

Ok

12. espinozagabe

So you were pretty much correct. The difference is that the angle bisector theorem can be applied to any angle. However when that theorem is applied in a triangle it divides it into two different segments, and the corresponding sides in each of the two segments are then proportional to each other.

13. estudier

Ah, OK, one is a special case of the other. Thanks for coming back.

Well I wanted to let you know the answer as well. lol
