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.
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
Yes. I know that,
amistre64
  • amistre64
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
  • karatechopper
Well its not an equation. They are just line segments
amistre64
  • amistre64
its information pertaining to the shape that would help to define it otherwise it could just as well be an equilateral triangle
hartnn
  • hartnn
since, PS is bisector, AS=CS
anonymous
  • anonymous
since P is the circumcenter, it lies in the perpendicular BISECTOR BS
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
Yes, i have that segment down already. @hartnn
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
I am confused on that. You know i have to find congruent segments right? @r0n4ld
amistre64
  • amistre64
at the moment, that is thhe only line segment that we can be sure of; the rest of the triangle is a mystery
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
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?
hartnn
  • hartnn
not at all, BP is hypotenuse of right triangle, whereas BT is the side.
hartnn
  • hartnn
*BT is one of the leg.
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
Yes, but Point P is the circumcenter. So i would think every line segment is congruent.
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
If attached to Point P
hartnn
  • hartnn
the 3 perpendicular bisectors will bisect 3 sides only... so u get 3 pirs of segments equal.
hartnn
  • hartnn
*pairs
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
Would PS be one?
hartnn
  • hartnn
nopes, because PS is not a part of a side of triangle.
hartnn
  • hartnn
RA=RB SA=SC TB=TC
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
But they have to be congruent to BP
hartnn
  • hartnn
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
  • karatechopper
Oh..
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
BUT. P is the middle! So why wouldnt everyone thing attached to the P be congruent?
hartnn
  • hartnn
u really can't say anything about PS,PT,PR
hartnn
  • hartnn
'middle' doen;t mean middle of everything :P
hartnn
  • hartnn
*doesn't
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
Awh man!
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
so its only CP and AP?
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes...
hartnn
  • hartnn
=BP
karatechopper
  • karatechopper
ok! THANKS!!!! :)
hartnn
  • hartnn
welcome ^_^
