6-3 Indirect Proof
Indirect Proof 1. Assume temporarily that opposite of prove. 2. Then think how to contradict the info. 3. But this contradicts Given. 4. Therefore the temporary assumption that opposite of prove must be false. 5. It follows that Prove.
Ways to remember… Always (Assume) Take (Then) Bread (But) To (Therefore) Italy (In conclusion) The bread in Italy is not good.
Ways to remember what goes in the blanks… Olives (opp. Of prove) Taste (Think) Good (Given) On (Opp. Prove) Pizza (Prove)
Given: In parallelogram XYZW, m X = 80° Prove: Parallelogram XYZW is not a rectangle. Assume temporarily that Parallelogram XYZW is a rectangle. Then rectangles have all right angles which means m X = 90°. But this contradicts the given information that m X = 80°. Therefore the temporary assumption that Parallelogram XYZW is a rectangle is false. It follows that Parallelogram XYZW is not a rectangle. EXAMPLE 1
Given: m X ≠ m Y Prove: X and Y are not both right angles Assume temporarily that X and Y are both right angles. Then m X = 90° and m Y = 90°. Using substitution, m X = m Y. But this contradicts the given information m X ≠ m Y. Therefore the temporary assumption that X and Y are both right angles is false. It follows that X and Y are not both right angles. TOO
Multiple Choice Theorem: A triangle has at most one obtuse angle. Eduardo is proving the theorem above by contradiction. He began by assuming that in
Starting with If, Then If they start with and If-Then— The “If” part is the GIVEN Then “Then” part is the PROVE
