It is the same distance from second base to first base, and from second base to third base. The angle formed by first base, second base, and home plate has the same measure as the angle formed by third base, second base, and home plate. What can you conclude about the distance from first base to home plate, and from home plate to third base? Explain.

they are equal, but not necessarily the same as the other two distances.
