What is a real life example of an angle bisector?
A bisector breaks something into two pieces that are the same size! Two common bisectors in math are a line segment bisector and an angle bisector.
Equation of the Angle Bisector a 1 x + b 1 y + c 1 a 1 2 + b 1 2 = − a 2 x + b 2 y + c 2 a 2 2 + b 2 2 .
The angle bisector theorem converse states that if a point is in the interior of an angle and equidistant from the sides, then it lies on the bisector of that angle. The incenter is the point of intersection of the angle bisectors in a triangle.
What is the converse of the angle bisector theorem?
The best real life example I can provide is that the practice of quilting involves bisecting angles. If you look at any quilt, you will likely see triangles. The second best example I can provide involves sewing with plaid or striped material. Sometimes the sewer wants to cut-on-a-bias.
