Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Prove that a line that divides two sides of a triangle proportionally is parallel to the third side. Be sure to create and name the appropriate geometric figures.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A double negation, yeah? Isn't that basically indirectly proving?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't that rely on the lines being parallel?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's not a question, it's a command. That's all that's given. I think I'm proving the converse of the triangle proportionality theorem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ooh I could probably say the triangles are similar, thus having congruent angles, then say by extension or by that they're exterior or interior angles or whatever that they're parallel.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we can start with one type of triangle like righttriangle and then use tangent ratio and prove

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ya you can use that or start with that similar triangles provide congruence

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It seems the least convoluted way I've thought.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Could I use the converse(inverse maybe? I forget) of the corresponding angles theorem after saying they're similar to prove parallelism?
