Text Solution

What is Known?

\(AD\) is perpendicular bisector of \(BC\) means and \(BD=DC\)

To prove:

\(\Delta ABC\) is an isosceles triangle in which \(AB = AC.\)

Reasoning:

We can show two triangles ADB and ADC congruent by using SAS congruency rule and then we can say corresponding parts of congruent triangles will be equal.

Steps:

In \(\Delta ADC\text{ and }\Delta ADB,\)

\(\begin{align}&AD=AD (Common)\\&\angle ADC=\angle ADB\ (\text{Each }\!\!~\!\!\text{ }{{90}^{{}^\circ }})\\&CD=BD\\&\left( \begin{array}  & \text{AD is the perpendicular } \\ \text{bisector of BC} \\ 
\end{array} \right)\\\\&\therefore \Delta ADC\cong \Delta ADB \\&\text{(By SAS congruence rule)}\\\\&\therefore AB=AC\,\,\,(\text{By }CPCT)\!\!~\!\!\end{align}\) 

Therefore, \(ABC\) is an isosceles triangle in which \(AB = AC\).
