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

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

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

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

    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.

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