Q:
# Will congruent chords always form isosceles triangles with the center point?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:YesStep-by-step explanation:In a circle we have suppose two chords congruent. Now imagine the two triangles formed by connecting each chord ends to the centre.These two triangles will have all three sides congruent becauseChord length = equal (given)Other sides = equal (radii of the same circle)Thus by SSS axiom these triangle will be congruent to each other and also the triangles formed would be isosceles since radii are equal.
