Special Isosceles Triangle Properties - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

In isosceles (and equilateral) triangles, a segment drawn from the vertex angle to the opposite side is the altitude, angle bisector and median. Isosceles triangle properties are used in many proofs and problems where the student must realize that, for example, an altitude is also a median or an angle bisector to find a missing side or angle.
