**(5.1) Midsegments of Triangles**

What will we be learning today? Use properties of midsegments to solve problems.

**Key Terms: A midsegment of a triangle is**

Theorem 5-1: Triangle Midsegment Theorem If a segment joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, then the segment is parallel to the third side, and is half its length Key Terms: A midsegment of a triangle is a segment connecting the midpoints of two sides.

**Example 1: Finding Lengths**

Theorem 5-1: Triangle Midsegment Theorem If a segment joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, then the segment is parallel to the third side, and is half its length Example 1: Finding Lengths In XYZ, M, N and P are the midpoints. The Perimeter of MNP is 60. Find NP and YZ. Because the perimeter is 60, you can find NP. NP + MN + MP = 60 (Definition of Perimeter) NP = 60 NP + = 60 NP = x 24 M P 22 Y Z N

Theorem 5-1: Triangle Midsegment Theorem If a segment joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, then the segment is parallel to the third side, and is half its length Example 1: Use the Triangle Midsegment Theorem to find YZ MP = of YZ Triangle Midsegment Thm. MP = = ½ YZ Substitute 24 for MP = YZ Multiply both sides by or the reciprocal of ½. x 24 M P 22 Y Z N

**Example 2: Identifying Parallel Segments**

Theorem 5-1: Triangle Midsegment Theorem If a segment joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, then the segment is parallel to the third side, and is half its length Example 2: Identifying Parallel Segments Find the m<AMN and m<ANM. Line segments MN and BC are cut by transversal AB, so m<AMN and <B are angles. Line Segments MN and BC are parallel by the Theorem, so m<AMN is congruent to <B by the Postulate. m<AMN = 75 because congruent angles have the same measure. In triangle AMN, AM = , so m<ANM = by the Triangle Theorem. m<ANM = by substitution. A corresponding Triangle Midsegment N M M Corresponding Angles AN m<AMN Isosceles 75O C 75 B

**(5.2) Bisectors in Triangles**

What will we be learning today? Use properties of perpendicular bisectors and angle bisectors.

10
Theorems Theorem 5-2: Perpendicular Bisector Thm. If a point is on the perpendicular bisector of a segment, then it is equidistant form the endpoints of the segment. Theorem 5-3: Converse of the Perpendicular Bisector Thm. If a point is equidistant from the endpoints of a segment, then it is on the perpendicular bisector of the segment.

11
Theorems Theorem 5-4: Angle Bisector Thm. If a point is on the bisector of an angle, then it is equidistant from the sides of the angle. Theorem 5-5: Converse of the Angle Bisector Thm. If a point in the interior of an angle is equidistant from the sides of the angle, then it is on the angle bisector.

12
Key Concepts The distance from a point to a line is the length of the perpendicular segment from the point to the line. Example: D is 3 in. from line AB and line AC C D 3 A B

13
Example Using the Angle Bisector Thm. Find x, FB and FD in the diagram at the right. Show steps to find x, FB and FD: FD = Angle Bisector Thm. 7x – 35 = 2x + 5 A 2x + 5 B F 7x - 35 C D E
