# Honors Geometry

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)?

1. 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.

2. 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.

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

5. Put your ITT in the form

IF THIS

THEN THAT

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

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