2 Consider the Right Triangle. EXIT BACKNEXT

3 If we draw a vertical line from vertex C to a point D on our base, we form other right triangles. EXIT BACKNEXT

4 We have now created three right triangles These triangles are all similar! EXIT BACKNEXT

5 Recall that similar triangles have congruent (equal measure) corresponding angles. EXIT BACKNEXT

6 EXIT BACKNEXT

7 We know the following EXIT BACKNEXT

8 Similarly, EXIT BACKNEXT

9 Our picture becomes... EXIT BACKNEXT

10 Notice we can dissect this right triangle. We must rotate the first right triangle ¼ turn clockwise so the two triangles have the same alignment. EXIT BACKNEXT

11 Since these triangles are similar, the following properties can be used. EXIT BACKNEXT

12 It can be shown that the original right triangle ABC is similar to the smaller two right triangles. EXIT BACKNEXT

13 If we separate the figure into three triangles and use the same alignment for all three we get... EXIT BACKNEXT

14 Similar proportions can be created. CAD B A C D B C EXIT BACKNEXT

15 Example 1) Determine the value for X EXIT BACKNEXT

16 EXIT BACKNEXT

17 We really have EXIT BACKNEXT

18 Example 2) EXIT BACKNEXT

19 Example 3) EXIT BACKNEXT

20 Example 4) EXIT BACKNEXT

21 Summary EXIT BACKNEXT
