A circle that is inside a triangle and is tangent to its sides.
A circle that goes around a triangle and passes through its vertices.
The center of the inscribed circle of a triangle.
The center of the circumscribed circle of a triangle.
A segment that joins a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side.
The point where the medians of a triangle intersect.
A segment that passes through a vertex of a triangle and is perpendicular to the opposite side.
Two lines that intersect to form a right angle.
Two coplanar lines that do not intersect.
A statement that you think is true based on observations.
A statement that you prove using logical reasoning.
A point that divides a segment into two congruent parts.
A line that passes through the midpoint of a segment.
A line that bisects a segment and is also perpendicular to it.
A ray that divides an angle into two congruent parts.
Perpendicular Lines Theorem
If two coplanar lines are perpendicular to the same line, then they are parallel.
Distance from a Point to a Line
The shortest segment from a point to a line is the one that is perpendicular to the line.
Angle Congruence Postulate
Two angles are congruent if and only if they have the same measure.
Angle Addition Postulate
part of the angle + part of the angle = total angle
Two angles that make 90 degrees.
Two angles that make 180 degrees.
Linear Pair Postulate
If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary.
An angle whose measure is 90 degrees.
An angle whose measure is less than 90 degrees.
An angle whose measure is greater than 90 degrees an less than 180.
An angle whose measure is 180 degrees.
Points that lie on the same line.
Points that lie on the same plane.
A statement that is accepted as true without proof.
A statement that is proved using logical reasoning.
