# Given: R W → bisects ∠ S R T Do the following equalities hold? a) S W = W T b) R S R T = S W W T To determine

a)

To check: Whether the equality SW=WT holds or not.

Explanation

Given:

RW bisects SRT.

Theorem used:

Angle bisector theorem:

If a ray bisects one angle of a triangle, then it divides the opposite side into segments whose lengths are proportional to the lengths of the two sides that form the bisected angle

To determine

b)

To check: Whether the equality RSRT=SWWT holds or not.
