Could anyone help me udnerstand the base angle theorem and the converse base angle theorem better?..I don't wuite understand them, and I have homework on it.

Marie: The base angle theorem: If in a triangle two of the side are equal length, then the angles opposite the sides are equal.

Converse: If in a triangle two angles are equal, then the sides opposite the angles are equal.

See Isosceles triangles:
