Circumcenter is the point P. Need to find segments congruent to line segment CS.

    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.

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

    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

    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

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

    not at all, BP is hypotenuse of right triangle, whereas BT is the side.

    Yes, but Point P is the circumcenter. So i would think every line segment is congruent.

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

    Would PS be one?

    nopes, because PS is not a part of a side of triangle.

    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.

    BUT. P is the middle! So why wouldnt everyone thing attached to the P be congruent?
