If the bisector of the vertical angle of the triangle bisects the base prove that the triangle is isosceles?

• Math -

The law of sines says that the ratio of the common bisector line to the sine of the unbisected side angles must be the same. Therefore the two side angles must be equal. That makes the triangle isosceles.
