4 The Side-Splitting gives us another way of find some of the lengths from the previous problem. Side-Splitting TheoremA line parallel to one side of a triangle will DIVIDE THE OTHER TWO SIDES PROPORTIONALLY
5 One obvious proportion resulting from this theorem would be but others that are useful are or or……..
6 Example: Consider the figure on the right. 1) TA = 6. AX = 10 TE = 8 Example: Consider the figure on the right. 1) TA = AX = TE = TS = ______
10 The following statement is a corollary of the Side-Splitting Theorem The following statement is a corollary of the Side-Splitting Theorem. Two-Transversal Proportionality CorollaryThree or more parallel lines will divide two transversals proportionally.
