Text Solution

What is Known?

\(ABC\) is an isosceles triangle with \(AB \;\;AC\) and \(AP \;BC\)

To prove:

\[\angle \text{B}=\angle \text{C}\]

Reasoning:

We can show triangles \(APB\) and \(APC\) congruent by using RHS congruency and then we can say corresponding parts of congruent triangles are equal to show the required result.

Steps:

In \(\Delta APB\) and \(\Delta APC\),

\[\begin{align} \angle APB & = \angle APC\;(\text{Each }90^{\circ})\\  AB &= AC \;(\text {Given})\\  AP& = AP \;(\text {Common})\\  \Delta APB &\cong \Delta APC \\&(\text {Using RHS congruence rule})\end{align}\]

\[\angle B = \angle C\;(\text{By using }CPCT)\]
