## Introduction

In this chapter we will explore the properties of midsegments, perpendicular bisectors, angle bisectors, medians, and altitudes. Next, we will look at the relationship of the sides of a triangle and how the sides of one triangle can compare to another.

## Chapter Outline

### Chapter Summary

## Summary

This chapter begins with an introduction to the Midsegment Theorem. The definition of a perpendicular bisector is presented and the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem and its converse are explored. Now that the bisectors of segments have been discussed, the definition of an angle bisector is next and the Angle Bisector Theorem and its converse are presented. The properties of medians and altitudes of triangles are discussed in detail. The entire chapter builds to a discovery of the relationships between the angles and sides in triangles as a foundation for the Triangle Inequality Theorem. The chapter ends with a presentation of indirect proofs.
