triangle is : isosceles

– in a triangle ABC, if altitude BE is euqal to the altitude CF, then the triangle
is : isosceles

– the median on the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is equal to : nothing
can be said

– in an an isosceles triangle ABC, d,e,f are the midpoints of the base BC and
the equal sides AB, AC resp, then : DF=DE

– if the diagonals of a || are equal then its a : rectangle

– a diagonal of a |\gm divides it into : 4 triangles of equal area

– in a triangle ABC, the median AD bisecting the side BC has its midpoint O.
the line CO meets AB at E. AE is equal to : AB/3

– if a line is drawn || to 1 side of a triangle, the other 2 sides are divided : in
the same ratio

– if the diagonals of a ||gm are equal, its a : rectangle

– AAA theorem is applicable for 2 triangles to prove them : similar

– the ratios of areas of similiar triangles is equal to the ratio of : squares on
the corresponding sides

– if 2 chords of a circle intersect inside or outside a circle, the rectangle
contained by the parts of 1 chord is equal in area to the rectange contained
by : the parts of the other

– if the perpendicular drawn from the vertex of a right angled triangle to the
hypotenuse, the number of similiar triangles formed is euqal to : 3

– in triangle abc, ad is perpendicular to bc. if ad^2 = bd*dc, the triangle is :
right angled

– in a ||gm abcd, e is a pt on ad. ac and be intersect each other at f. then:

– p and q are 2 pts on the sides ca and cb of a triangle abc, right angled at c.
