Given ΔLMN where the length of segment NP is greater than the length of segment LP, the following is an indirect paragraph proof proving segment MP is not a median:
Triangle LMN is shown with point P on side LN. A segment is drawn between points M and P.
Assume segment MP is a median. According to the definition of a median, point P is the midpoint of side L N. By the definition of a midpoint NP = LP. This contradicts the given statement. Therefore, segment MP is not a median.
Is the indirect proof logically valid? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes. Statements are presented in a lo
