Chapter 6 Inequalities in Geometry

6-1 Inequalities Objectives Apply properties of inequality to positive numbers, lengths of segments, and measures of angles State and use the Exterior Angle Inequality Theorem.

Law of Trichotomy The "Law of Trichotomy" says that only one of the following is true

Alex Has Less Money Than Billy or Alex Has the same amount of money that Billy has or Alex Has More Money Than Billy

Equalities vs Inequalities To this point we have dealt with congruent –Segments –Angles –Triangles –Polygons

Equalities vs Inequalities In this chapter we will work with –segments having unequal lengths –Angles having unequal measures

The 4 Inequalities SymbolWords >greater than < less than ≥greater than or equal to ≤less than or equal to

The symbol "points at" the smaller value

A review of some properties of inequalities When you use any of these in a proof, you can write as your reason, A property of Inequality

1. If a < b, then a + c < b + c

If a < b, then a + c < b + c Alex has less coins than Billy. If both Alex and Billy get 3 more coins each, Alex will still have less coins than Billy. Example

Likewise If a < b, then a − c < b − c If a > b, then a + c > b + c, and If a > b, then a − c > b − c So adding (or subtracting) the same value to both a and b will not change the inequality

2. If a < b, and c is positive, then ac < bc

Likewise If a < b, and c is positive, then a < b c c

So multiplying (or dividing) the same value to both a and b will no change the inequality if c is POSITIVE !

3. If a bc (inequality swaps over!)

Likewise If a b c

So multiplying (or dividing) the same value to both a and b will change the inequality if c is NEGATIVE !

4. If a < b and b < c, then a < c

If a < b and b < c, then a < c 1.) If Alex is younger than Billy and 2.) Billy is younger than Carol, Then Alex must be younger than Carol also! Example

5. If a = b + c and c is > 0, then a > b and a > c

The Exterior Angle Inequality Theorem The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is greater than the measure of either remote interior angle. 143 2 m  4 > m  1 m  4 > m  2

Remote time

If a and b are real numbers and a < b, which one of the following must be true? A. -a < -b B. -a > -b C. a < -b D.-a > b E.I don’t know

Remote Time True or False

If XY = YZ + 15, then XY > YZ

True or False If m  A = m  B + m  C, then m  B > m  C

True or False If m  H = m  J+ m  K, then m  K > m  H

True or False If 10 = y + 2, then y > 10

6-2: Inverses and Contrapositives State the converse and inverse of an if-then statement. Understand the relationship between logically equivalent statements. Draw correct conclusions from given statements.

Review Identify the hypothesis and the conclusion of each statements. –If Maria gets home from the football game late, then she will be grounded. –If Mike eats three happy meals, then he will have a major stomach ache.

If you are in your room, then you are in your house. What can you conclude if a) You are in your house b) You are in your room c) You are not in your room d) You are not in your house

Venn Diagrams Maria gets home from the game late She will be grounded A conditional statement can also be illustrated with a Venn Diagram. If Maria gets home from the football game late, then she will be grounded..

Venn Diagrams Mike eats three happy meals He will have a major stomach ache A conditional statement can also be illustrated with a Venn Diagram. If Mike eats three happy meals, then he will have a major stomach ache

Venn Diagrams IF THEN

Venn Diagrams THEN IF

Then she is grounded Late from football game Aren’t there other reasons why Maria might get grounded?

Has a major stomach ache Eats three happy meals Aren’t there other reasons why Mike might get a stomach ache?

It’s a funny thing This part of geometry is called LOGIC, however, if you try and “think logically” you will usually get the question wrong. Let me show you

Example 1 If it is snowing, then the game is canceled. What can you conclude if I say, the game was cancelled?

Example 1 If it is snowing, then the game is canceled. What can you conclude if I say, the game was cancelled?

There are other reasons that the game would be cancelled Game cancelled Snowing A B C D

All you can conclude it that it MIGHT be snowing and that isn’t much of a conclusion.

Let’s try again Remember don’t think logically. Think about where to put the star in the venn diagram.

6-3 Indirect Proof Objectives Write indirect proofs in paragraph form

After walking home, Sue enters the house carrying a dry umbrella. We can conclude that it is not raining outside.

Because if it HAD been raining, then her umbrella would be wet. The umbrella is not wet. Therefore, it is not raining.

How do you feel about proofs? a)I don’t like them at all b)I don’t mind doing them c)I haven’t learned all of the definitions/postulates/ and theorems, so they are still hard for me to do. d)I love doing proofs e)I’m getting better at doing proofs

UUGGGHHH more proofs Up until now the proofs that you have written have been direct proofs. Sometimes it is IMPOSSIBLE to find a direct proof.

Indirect Proof Are used when you can’t use a direct proof. BUT, people use indirect proofs everyday to figure out things in their everyday lives. 3 steps EVERYTIME

Step 1 Assume temporarily that…. (the conclusion is false). I know I always tell you not to ASSume, but here you can. You want to believe that the opposite of the conclusion is true.

Step 2 Using the given information of anything else that you already know for sure, for sure, for sure…..(like postulates, theorems, and definitions), try and show that the temporary assumption that you made can’t be true. You are looking for a contradiction* to the GIVEN information. This contradicts the given information. Use pictures and write in a paragraph.

Step 3 My temporary assumption is false and ( the original conclusion must be true). Restate the original conclusion.

Example 1 Given: Tim drove 105 miles to his friend’s house in 1 ½ hours. Prove: Tim exceeded the 55 mph speed limit while driving.

Given: Tim drove 105 miles to his friend’s house in 1 ½ hours. Prove: Tim exceeded the 55 mph speed limit while driving. Step 1: Assume temporarily that Tim did not exceed the 55 mph

Given: Tim drove 105 miles to his friend’s house in 1 ½ hours. Prove: Tim exceeded the 55 mph speed limit while driving. Step 1: Assume temporarily that Tim did not exceed the 55 mph Step 2: Then the minimum time it would take Tim to get to his friend’s house is 105/55 = 1.9 hours. This is a contradiction to the given information that he got there in 1 ½ hours.*

Given: Tim drove 105 miles to his friend’s house in 1 ½ hours. Prove: Tim exceeded the 55 mph speed limit while driving. Step 1: Assume temporarily that Tim did not exceed the 55 mph Step 2: Then the minimum time it would take Tim to get to his friend’s house is 105/55 = 1.9 hours. This is a contradiction to the given information that he got there in 1 ½ hours.* Step 3: My temporary assumption is false and Tim exceeded the 55 mph speed limit while driving.

Then the minimum time it would take Tim to get to his friend’s house is 105/55 = 1.9 hours. This is a contradiction to the given information that he got there in 1 ½ hours.* My temporary assumption is false and Tim exceeded the 55 mph speed limit while driving.

Example 2 Given: n is an integer and n 2 is even Prove: n is even

Given: n is an integer and n 2 is even Prove: n is even Step 1: Assume temporarily that n is not even. That would mean that n is odd.

Given: n is an integer and n 2 is even Prove: n is even Step 1: Assume temporarily that n is not even. That would mean that n is odd. Step 2: I know that n 2 = (n)(n), and if I choose a value for n that is odd, like 3, then n 2 =(3)(3)=9.* This contradicts the given information that is n 2 even.

Given: n is an integer and n 2 is even Prove: n is even Step 1: Assume temporarily that n is not even. That would mean that n is odd. Step 2: I know that n 2 = (n)(n), and if I choose a value for n that is odd, like 3, then n 2 =(3)(3)=9.* This contradicts the given information that is n 2 even. Step 3: My temporary assumption is false and n is even.

Given: n is an integer and n 2 is even Prove: n is even Assume temporarily that n is not even. That would mean that n is odd. I know that n 2 = (n)(n), and if I choose a value for n that is odd, like 3, then n 2 =(3)(3)=9.* This contradicts the given information that is n 2 even. My temporary assumption is false and n is even.

Example 3 Given: Trapezoid PQRS with bases PQ and SR Prove: PQ  SR

Given: Trapezoid PQRS with bases PQ and SR Prove: PQ  SR Step 1: Assume temporarily PQ =SR

Given: Trapezoid PQRS with bases PQ and SR Prove: PQ  SR Step 1: Assume temporarily PQ =SR Step 2: Since PQRS is a trapezoid and PQ and SR are the bases, I know by the definition of a trapezoid, that PQ || SR. If PQ || SR and PQ =SR, then PQRS is a parallelogram because If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are both  and ||, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. This contradicts the given information that PQRS is a trapezoid, because a quadrilateral can’t be a trapezoid AND a parallelogram.*

I know that m  X = 90 and m  Y = 90, because of the definition of a right angle. If the m  X = 90 and m  Y = 90, then by substitution, m  X = m  Y*. This is a contradiction to the given information that m  X  m  Y. My teomporary assumption is false and  X and  Y are not both right angles

Remember SAS and SSS

Paper Strip Triangle Supplies- paper, scissors and a ruler. Step 1: Have pairs of students cut two strips of paper, making the strips a random length but very thin. Step 2: Students then place the two strips together so that they form two sides of an angle Step 3: Then they measure how long the third side would need to be.

Paper Strip Triangle Step 4: Now, have the students increase the size of the included angle and measure how long the third side would need to be.

Make a People Triangle Step 1: Measure students' heights and identify two students who are identical in height to two other students. Step 2: Have two of the students lie on the floor, their feet touching at an angle, to form two sides of a triangle, and measure the distance between the students' heads. Step 3: Do the same thing with the second pair of students. smaller angle.
