ABC is an isosceles triangle with AB = AC and D is the mid-point of base BC (Fig. 6.48).

A. State three pairs of equal parts in the triangles ABD and ACD.

B. Is ∆ABD ∆ACD. If so why?

Answer :

Given: AB = AC; D is midpoint of BC

As D is midpoint of BC


In Δ ADB and Δ ADC

AB = AC (given)

BD = DC (D is midpoint of BC)

AD = AD (common)

these are all 3 equal parts of triangles ABD and ACD

yes ∆ABD ∆ACD

Because it follows SSS congruence criterion
