Is it true that all triangles are isoceles? If you think this is a trivial question, explain the hidden assumption in the proof that all triangles are isoceles.
Please, help

lol

- Loser66

but I don't understand the rest of the question.

- dan815

to show that not all triangles are isocles, pick 3 non equal angles that sum to 180, and prove that a different angle has a different side

- Loser66

a right triangle is a perfect proof, right?

- Loser66

So, If I say: No, not all triangles are isoceles, and give out the proof, I don't have to do the rest of it, right?

@Loser66 this is not trivial question. it has geometrical attempt

- anonymous

This fallacy has been attributed to Lewis Carroll znd explained by maxwell .

if you need any help understanding the proof and the fault in it im always here :P

- Loser66

hey, ikram. What should I do for this question? find out the fallacy?

- Loser66

Since this proof is not on my book, and I am not allowed to use the internet solution, how can I prove it is a fallacy?

- anonymous

yes, just mention their used to be a known proof by Lewis Carroll , which says " every triangle is isosceles ", mention the proof and then say why its wrong.

- Loser66

ok, Thanks a ton. Let me try. :)

- anonymous

in this case its okay if used Internet as reference since this is history and not work like its wrong proof anyway lol

- anonymous

you are welcome @Loser66 :)
PS:- saying every triangle is isosceles s not weird at all, even if you see some triangles do not match, one of eclids postulate said "all right triangles are congruent" and have a proof for it even thought for first look it does not seems alright, okay now ?

- anonymous

you also can disprove the main question in addition of mention history about it :D

- Loser66

I figure out the mistake on the proof. Correct me if I am wrong, please
at 6, the case to get 2 triangles are equal is ASA, not AAS, right?

- Loser66

It means the side must be between the angles.

- anonymous

nope, the mistake is in step 3

- anonymous

Let these two lines meet at a point O., there is no guaranty that O would be inside the triangle not on circumcircle or out of it.

- anonymous

in general thes line meet in this conditional at point O in circumcircle, there is only one case that it would be inside the triangle which is isosceles and equilateral triangles

- Loser66

oh, I see!! man!!

- anonymous

:D
