The Inscribed Similar Triangles Theorem states that if an altitude is drawn from the right angle of any right triangle, then the two triangles formed are similar to the original triangle and all three triangles are similar to each other.
Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a angle. The product of the slopes of two perpendicular lines is -1.
A proportion is an equation that shows two equivalent ratios.
The Pythagorean Theorem is a mathematical relationship between the sides of a right triangle, given by , where and are legs of the triangle and is the hypotenuse of the triangle.
This concept teaches students how to apply similarity to solve for missing information in inscribed right triangles.
