Since Sasha is equidistant from Toby and Rani, S w T w and S w R w are congruent and n STR is an isosceles triangle. According to the Isosceles Triangle Theorem, / T and / R are also congruent.

Unformatted text preview: S w X w is perpendicular to T w R w , so / SXT and / SXR are both right angles and congruent. Two corresponding angles and the corresponding nonincluded sides are congruent (AAS Theorem), so n STX and n SRX are congruent triangles. Since these triangles are congruent, the corresponding sides T w X w and R w X w are congruent and have equal length; therefore when Sasha is jumping at Point X she will be at the midpoint between Toby and Rani. 237 Chapter 7...
