The Scalar and Vector Product

By Math Original No comments

Scalar and Vector product There are two different ways in which vectors can be multiplied: the scalar and the vector product. Scalar Product Let’s suppose that we have two vectors $displaystyle overrightarrow{a}$and $displaystyle overrightarrow{b}$ shown below with the same direction and also the angle between them labeled ϴ. Definition: The scalar product of the vector […]

Similar triangles

By Math Original No comments

Similar triangles What are similar triangles? Similar triangles are triangles in which their corresponding angles are congruent and their corresponding sides are proportional. They are the same shape but not basically the same size. Three rules to prove if two triangles are similar 1. AA – the Angle-Angle rule states that if two corresponding angles of our two triangles are […]

Pythagorean Theorem

By Math Original No comments

Pythagorean Theorem Pythagorean theorem is used in a right angle triangle to calculate the sides of the triangle. When we are given two sides length in a right angle triangle we can find the missing side by using the Pythagorean theorem. Also to prove if a triangle is a right angle triangle. What does Pythagorean Theorem says? […]

Congruent Triangles

By Math Original No comments

Congruent triangles Two triangles are congruent if all their corresponding angles have the same measure and all their corresponding sides have the same length. Four rules of proving that two triangles are congruent Rule 1: The SSS rule: Side-Side-Side rule The side-side-side rule states that if the three sides of a triangle are equal to the three sides of the […]

Triangles

Triangles A triangle is plane shape called a polygon that is formed by three edges and three vertices. Properties of Triangles 1. The sum of all internal angles of a triangle is 180° 2. The sum of any two side lengths in any triangle is always greater than the length of the third side. 3. The difference between the two […]

Polygons

By Math Original No comments

Polygons Polygons are the part of the plane bounded by a dashed line enclosed. So, basically a polygon is made from straight lines. Polygons are classified  by the number of sides that they have. Three sided polygons A three sided polygon is a triangle. The internal angles of all triangles add up to 180°. Triangles can […]
