FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. How to show AB bisects PQ if AB is an altitude of an isosceles triangle APQ in which AP = AQ?

In the question, it’s given that AB is an altitude and AP = AQ. Now, in a triangle, APB and AQB, angle ABP = 90o and ABQ = 90o. As AP = AQ and AB is the common arm in the triangle APB and AQB, then apply the RHS congruence rule. The rule states that two triangles are said to be congruent if the hypotenuse and one side of a triangle are equal to another triangle’s hypotenuse and its one side. Hence, both the triangles APB and AQB are equal. Now, by applying the CPCT rule, PB is equal to QB. Hence, AB bisects PQ.

2. How to prove that the ABC is an isosceles triangle if BE and CF are two altitudes equal to each other?

Given that BE and CF are two altitudes of an isosceles triangle that are equal to each other. In the triangle BEC and CFB, angle BEC is equal to 90o and CFB is equal to 90o. Also, BC = CB as it is a common side. Similarly, BE and CF are equal. By applying the RHS Congruence Rule, triangle BEC and CFB are equal to each other. Additionally, by CPCT rule, C = B. It means that sides opposite to the equal angles are equal always. Hence, AB = AC. It shows, that side AB and BC of the triangle ABC form an isosceles triangle.
