dang, thanks anyways

@jcoury do you know the difference between illustrating a theorem vs proving it?

@madhu.mukherjee.946

- anonymous

nope sorry

- madhu.mukherjee.946

first using your compass and straight edge, construct an isosceles triangle.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

what now

- madhu.mukherjee.946

Using your compass and straight edge, bisect the vertex angle.

so is that the first thing you have to construct to prove the isosceles triangle theorem?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

yeah

- anonymous

ok so just to be clear (sorry lol i just want to make sure i understand it) the first thing you have to construct to prove the isosceles triangle theorem is bisect the vertex angle right?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

yes .But before that you need to construct the triangle

- anonymous

ok makes sense, thanks, could you help with the second question?

- anonymous

What's the difference between illustrating a theorem and proving it?

- anonymous

@madhu.mukherjee.946

- madhu.mukherjee.946

to prove a theorem it means that you got to show that the theorem is valid

- madhu.mukherjee.946

illustrating a theorem means to explain a theorem maybe with a diagram and also with the help of a proof sometimes

- anonymous

yeah i know what you mean but my teacher asked this: i want to talk about illustrating a theorem vs proving it, i dont get it, does she want the difference or something?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

yeah she wants the difference

- anonymous

oh alright, thanks for your help! ill award you best response!

- madhu.mukherjee.946

welcome!

@madhu.mukherjee.946 sorry i have one more question !

- anonymous

sure!

- anonymous

so what does that mean exactly? lol sry im not very good at geometry

- madhu.mukherjee.946

okay now consider triangle pro and triangle oqr

- madhu.mukherjee.946

i guess you are familiar with congruency

- anonymous

yes

- madhu.mukherjee.946

good

- madhu.mukherjee.946

now see it is given that the figure is a rectangle

- anonymous

so both triangles are congruent

- madhu.mukherjee.946

u got to prove the congruency

- anonymous

how do i do that?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

thats what i'm telling you

- madhu.mukherjee.946

now see it is given that the figure is a rectangle

- madhu.mukherjee.946

so we know that the opposite sides of a rectangle are equal

- anonymous

so then that proves that pr and oq are congruent? since the opposite sides are equal?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

no dude wait

- anonymous

im sorry lol im really bad at this

- anonymous

i just want to know how PR is congruent to OQ

- madhu.mukherjee.946

thats what i'm telling you. you got to prove triangle pro and triangle oqr congruent

- anonymous

ohh ok gotcha

- madhu.mukherjee.946

can you prove it

- madhu.mukherjee.946

hey victor can you prove it
