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

    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?

    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?

    yes .But before that you need to construct the triangle

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

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

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