A Hint for a Geometry ProofDate: 6 Jan 1995 11:09:46 -0500 From: Paul Pragin Subject: Geometry Prove: If a segment whose endpoints lie on opposite sides of a parallelogram passes through the midpoint of a diagonal, that segment is bisected by the diagonal. I can't prove that. Can you help me? Thank you very much, Paul Pragin Date: 6 Jan 1995 13:08:32 -0500 From: Anonymous Subject: Re: Geometry Hi Paul, To get you started, draw a picture and look at the two triangles that get made. Those two triangles look the same to me. What would happen if you tried to show that they are equal? -- Steve Weimar ("chief of staff") |
