Given: / PQR is a right angle. Q w S w is an altitude of n PQR. Prove: n PSQ , n PQR n PQR , n QSR n PSQ , n QSR Proof: 46. Given: / ADC is a right angle. D w B w is an altitude of n ADC . Prove: } D AB B } 5 } D CB B } Proof: It is given that / ADC is a right angle and D w B w is an altitude of n ADC. n ADC is a right triangle by the definition of a right triangle. Therefore, n ADB , n DCB ,because if the altitude is drawn from the vertex of the right angle to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, then the two triangles formed are similar to the given triangle and to each other. So } D AB B } 5 } D CB B } by definition of similar polygons. 47. Given: / ADC is a right angle. D w B w is an altitude of n ADC.
