Unformatted text preview: 97 Some Theorems on Right Triangles
A) Theorem 926 a. The median to the hypotenuse of a right triangle is half as long as the hypotenuse b. c. Proof Take a point D on CM such that quadrilateral ADBC is a parallelogram. What type of parallelogram is it? Why? Then,
CM = 1 AB 2 B) Theorem 927 (The 306090 Triangle Theorem) a. If an acute angle of a right triangle has a measure of 30, then the opposite side is half as long as the hypotenuse i. b. Proof Let M be the midpoint of the hypotenuse AB . What does that tell us? What other angle do we know? C) Theorem 928 (The Converse of the 306090 Triangle Theorem) a. If one leg of a right triangle is half as long as the hypotenuse, then the opposite angle has a measure of 30. Proof Let M be the midpoint of AB . Then what do we know? What kind of triangle is CMB ? ...
