congruent means "equal to" or equivalent

the circumcenter is the point of concurrency of the three perpendicular bisectors (of the segments). The operative word here is bisector.

Yes. I know that,

cant see the equation underneath so it difficult to see what the trianlge is spose to look like as opposed to its visual shape

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Well its not an equation. They are just line segments

its information pertaining to the shape that would help to define it otherwise it could just as well be an equilateral triangle

since, PS is bisector, AS=CS

since P is the circumcenter, it lies in the perpendicular BISECTOR BS

Yes, i have that segment down already. @hartnn

I am confused on that. You know i have to find congruent segments right? @r0n4ld

at the moment, that is thhe only line segment that we can be sure of; the rest of the triangle is a mystery

Ok! Thats what i thought!

I was confused if there were any more thats why i posted

I have another question tho. Would line segment BT. be congruent to line segment BP?
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not at all, BP is hypotenuse of right triangle, whereas BT is the side.

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
*BT is one of the leg.

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yes, but Point P is the circumcenter. So i would think every line segment is congruent.

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
If attached to Point P

the 3 perpendicular bisectors will bisect 3 sides only... so u get 3 pirs of segments equal.
 2 years ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Would PS be one?
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
nopes, because PS is not a part of a side of triangle.

RA=RB SA=SC TB=TC

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But they have to be congruent to BP
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
there is a property : The perpendicular bisectors of the sides of a triangle meet at a point which is equidistant from the vertices so, BP=CP=AP also.

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
BUT. P is the middle! So why wouldnt everyone thing attached to the P be congruent?
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
u really can't say anything about PS,PT,PR

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
'middle' doen;t mean middle of everything :P

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Awh man!
 2 years ago

karatechopper Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so its only CP and AP?
