Theorm 8-1

If the altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, then the two triangles formed are similar to the original triangle and to each other.

Corollary 1:

When the altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the length of the altitude is the geometric mean between the segments of the hypotenuse.

Corollary 2:

When the altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, each leg is the geometric mean between the hypotenuse and the segment of the hypotenuse that is adjacent to that leg.

Pythagorean Theorem

In a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the legs.

Theorem 8-3

If the square of one side of a triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then the triangle is a right triangle.

Theorem 8-4

If the square of the longest side of a triangle is less than the sum of the squares of the other sides, then the triangle is an acute triangle.

Theorem 8-5

If the square of the longest side of a triangle is greater than the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then the triangle is an obtuse triangle.

Theorem 8-6 (45-45-90)

In a 45-45-90 triangle, the hypotenuse is √2 times as long as a leg.

Theorem 8-7 (30-60-90)

In a 30-60-90 triangle, the hypotenuse is twice as long as the shorter leg, and the longer leg is √3 times as long as the shorter leg.

Theorem 9-1

If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to the radius drawn to the point of tangency.

Corollary:

Corollary 1:

If two inscribed angles intercept the same arc, then the angles are congruent.

An angle inscribed in a semicircle is a right angle.

Corollary 3:

If a quadrilateral is inscribed in a circle, then its opposite angles are supplementary.
