In the Fig, we have BX = 1/2 AB and BY = 1/2 BC and AB = BC. Show that BX = BY.
*Note: Thinking process should be, things which are double of the same things are equal to one another.
Given, BX = and BY =
⇒ 2BX = AB ….(i)
⇒ 2BY = BC ….(ii)
and AB = BC …(iii)
On putting the values from Eqs. (i) and (ii) in eq. (iii)
2BX = 2BY
According to Euclid’s axiom, things which are double of same things are equal to one another.
