## 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}

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