Intro. to Geometric Proofs
Before we can consider geometric
proofs, we need to review
important definitions and
postulates from Unit I.
“If and only if” (abbreviated iff)
means that both a statement and
its converse is true.
Definitions:
An angle is a right angle iff
it has a measure of 90 degrees.
Two lines are perpendicular iff
they intersect to form a right angle.
A ray bisects an angle iff
the ray divides the angle into
two congruent angles.
Two angles are complementary iff
they have a sum of 90 degrees.
Two angles are supplementary iff
they have a sum of 180 degrees.
A point is a midpoint of a segment iff
the point divides the segment into
two congruent segments.
You must also be able to use the
definition of a linear pair to
identify a linear pair in a figure.
Postulates:
If R is between P and Q, then
PR + RQ = PQ
If S is in the interior of PQR , then
mPQS  mSQR  mPQR
Linear Pair Postulate:
If two angles form a linear pair,
then the angles are supplementary.
