I'm stuck on these 2 problems. My Geometry teacher won't help me.

What is the inverse of the Isosceles Triangle Theorem (ITT)?


What is the contrapositive of the Isosceles Triangle Theorem (ITT)?

    Here is how I remember this:

    1. hypothesis
    If a cow, then a mammal.
    assume true

    2. converse
    If a mammal, then a cow.
    maybe

    3. inverse
    If not a cow, then not a mammal.
    maybe

    4. contrapositive
    If not a mammal, then not a cow.
    true

    You can also draw Venn diagram to remember this.

    So
    I am not sure how your book stated theorem, there are several "isosceles triangle theorems.
    here is perhaps the most likely:

    Hypothesis:

    If two sides equal, then opposite angles equal.

    Inverse
    If two sides not equal, then opposite angles not equal

    Contrapositive
    If two angles not equal, then opposite sides not equal.

    hmm.. okay, but i'm not really seeing how that goes with the ITT

  • Honors Geometry - ,

    Tell me what ITT is exactly.

  • Honors Geometry - ,

    Put your ITT in the form

    IF THIS

    THEN THAT

    That is the hypothesis. The rest just follows the recipe.

  • Honors Geometry - ,

    Okay, the ITT is
    If a triangle has two congruent sides, then the angles oppositeof those sides are congruent

  • Honors Geometry - ,

    Okay. I figured the problem out now. Thanks for your help!

  • Honors Geometry - ,

    Good, I figured you would !
