15. WP is an angle bisector, so m HWP 1 2 m HWA . x 12 ¬ 1 2 (4 x 16) x 12 ¬ 2 x 8 12 ¬ x 8 20 ¬ x WP is a median, so AP PH . 3 y 11 ¬ 7 y 5 11 ¬ 4 y 5 16 ¬ 4 y 4 ¬ y m PAW ¬ 3 x 2 ¬ 3(20) 2 ¬ 58 m PWA m HWP because WP is an angle bisector. So, m PWA ¬ x 12 ¬ 20 12 or 32 m WPA m PAW m PWA ¬ 180 m WPA 58 32 ¬ 180 m WPA ¬ 90 WPA is a right angle, so WP is also an altitude. 16. WP bisects AH , so AP PH . 6 r 4 ¬ 22 3 r 3 r 4 ¬ 22 3 r ¬ 18 r ¬ 6 WP is perpendicular to AH , so m HPW 90. m WHA m HWP m HPW ¬ 180 8 q 17 10 q 90 ¬ 180 9 q 117 ¬ 180 9 q ¬ 63 q ¬ 7 m HWP ¬ 10 q ¬ 10 7 ¬ 17 17. Always; each median is always completely contained in the interior of the triangle, so the intersection point must also be inside the triangle. 18. sometimes; true for a right triangle but false for an equilateral triangle 19. Never; an angle bisector lies between two sides of the triangle and is contained in the triangle up to the point where it intersects the opposite side. so, the intersection point of the three angle bisectors must also be inside the triangle. 20. sometimes; true for an obtuse triangle but false for an acute triangle 21. PS is a median of PQR

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
