# In Exercises 44 to 44, explain why each statement is true.The altitude from the vertex of an isosceles triangle is also the median to the base of the triangle.

To determine

To explain:

The altitude from the vertex of an isosceles triangle is also the median to the base of the triangle.

Explanation

(1) If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of second triangle, then the third angle of both triangles are congruent.

(2) If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included sides of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent (ASA).

(3) Median of a triangle is a line segment joining a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side.

Given:

An isosceles ΔABC is given with altitude AD¯ and AB¯AC¯.

Figure (1)

Approach:

Consider the ΔABC with altitude AD¯.

Altitude AD¯ is perpendicular to BC¯.
