a.) Create a similarity statement and give a reason.
b.) What is the ratio of side lengths from the bigger triangle to the smaller triangle?
c.) What is the ratio of side lengths from the smaller triangle to the bigger triangle?
d.) What is the scale factor from the smaller triangle to the bigger triangle?
e.) What is the ratio of a smaller side part to the larger side part (as split by BD)?
f.) Find x.
We then recapped the Angle Bisector Theorem- what does it say, how do we use it?
And for the last 20 minutes students began working on practice problems on the angle bisector theorem and other concepts presented this semester. Below is the worksheet (which was printed yellow) used in class, due 1/26/16.
