Prove Triangle Theorems





 

Videos, solutions, and lessons to help High School students learn how to prove theorems about triangles.

Theorems include: a line parallel to one side of a triangle divides the other two proportionally, and conversely; the Pythagorean Theorem proved using triangle similarity.

Triangle Proportionality Theorem

The Triangle Proportionality Theorem
If a line parallel to one side of a triangle intersects the other two sides, then it divides those sides proportionally. The segment joining midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and half the length.
Demonstration of the Triangle Proportionality Theorem
In the triangle ABC let PQ be parallel to BC, with P on AB and Q on AC. Then |AP|/|PB| = |AQ|/|QC|.
