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

  • anonymous
nope sorry
madhu.mukherjee.946

first using your compass and straight edge, construct an isosceles triangle.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
what now
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • 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
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
yeah
anonymous
  • 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
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
yes .But before that you need to construct the triangle
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok makes sense, thanks, could you help with the second question?

What's the difference between illustrating a theorem and proving it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@madhu.mukherjee.946
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
  • 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
  • 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
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
yeah she wants the difference

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

wait im trying to get the picture!

  • anonymous
if you could please help me with this last one i promise its the last one! lol
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
ok pls wait

sure!

  • anonymous
so what does that mean exactly? lol sry im not very good at geometry
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
okay now consider triangle pro and triangle oqr
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
i guess you are familiar with congruency
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
good
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
now see it is given that the figure is a rectangle
anonymous
  • anonymous
so both triangles are congruent
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
u got to prove the congruency
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do i do that?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
thats what i'm telling you
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
now see it is given that the figure is a rectangle
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
so we know that the opposite sides of a rectangle are equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
so then that proves that pr and oq are congruent? since the opposite sides are equal?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
no dude wait
anonymous
  • anonymous
im sorry lol im really bad at this
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just want to know how PR is congruent to OQ
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
thats what i'm telling you. you got to prove triangle pro and triangle oqr congruent
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh ok gotcha
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
can you prove it
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
hey victor can you prove it
