Slide1:

Triangle Inequalities § 7.1 Segments, Angles, and Inequalities § 7.4 Triangle Inequality Theorem § 7.3 Inequalities Within a Triangle § 7.2 Exterior Angle Theorem

Slide2:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities You will learn to apply inequalities to segment and angle
measures. 1) Inequality

Slide3:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities The Comparison Property of Numbers is used to compare two line segments of unequal measures. The property states that given two unequal numbers a and b, either: a < b or a > b The same property is also used to compare angles of unequal measures.

Slide4:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities The measure of J is greater than the measure of K. The statements TU > VW and J > K are called __________ because they contain the symbol < or >. inequalities a < b a = b a > b

Slide5:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities SN DN 6 – (- 1) 6 – 2 7 4 > >

Slide6:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities AB > AC AB > CB A similar theorem for comparing angle measures is stated below. This theorem is based on the Angle Addition Postulate.

Slide7:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities A similar theorem for comparing angle measures is stated below. This theorem is based on the Angle Addition Postulate.

Slide8:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities mBDA mCDA 45° 40° + 45° < < Use theorem 7 – 2 to solve the following problem. 45° 85°

Slide9:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities For any numbers a, b, and c, 1) if a < b and b < c, then a < c. 2) if a > b and b > c, then a > c. if 5 < 8 and 8 < 9, then 5 < 9. if 7 > 6 and 6 > 3, then 7 > 3.

Slide10:

Segments, Angles, and Inequalities For any numbers a, b, and c, For any numbers a, b, and c, 1) if a < b, then a + c < b + c and a – c < b – c. 2) if a > b, then a + c > b + c and a – c > b – c. 1 < 3
1 + 5 < 3 + 5
6 < 8

Slide12:

Exterior Angle Theorem You will learn to identify exterior angles and remote interior
angles of a triangle and use the Exterior Angle Theorem. 1) Interior angle
2) Exterior angle
3) Remote interior angle

Slide13:

Exterior Angle Theorem In the triangle below, recall that 1, 2, and 3 are _______ angles of ΔPQR. interior Angle 4 is called an _______ angle of ΔPQR. exterior An exterior angle of a triangle is an angle that forms a _________ with one of
the angles of the triangle. linear pair In ΔPQR, 4 is an exterior angle at R because it forms a linear pair with 3. ____________________ of a triangle are the two angles that do not form
a linear pair with the exterior angle. Remote interior angles In ΔPQR, 1, and 2 are the remote interior angles with respect to 4.

Slide14:

Exterior Angle Theorem In the figure below, 2 and 3 are remote interior angles with respect to
what angle? 5

Exterior Angle Theorem 1 and 3 Name two angles in the triangle below that have measures less than 74°. acute

Slide19:

Exterior Angle Theorem

Slide20:

Exterior Angle Theorem The feather–shaped leaf is called a pinnatifid.
In the figure, does x = y? Explain. __ + 81 = 32 + 78 28 28° 109 = 110 No! x does not equal y

Slide22:

Inequalities Within a Triangle You will learn to identify the relationships between the _____
and _____ of a triangle. sides angles Nothing New!

Slide23:

Inequalities Within a Triangle in the same order LP < PM < ML mM < mP mL <

Slide24:

Inequalities Within a Triangle in the same order JK < KW < WJ mW < mK mJ <

Slide25:

Inequalities Within a Triangle greatest measure WY > XW 3 5 4 WY > XY

Slide26:

Inequalities Within a Triangle The longest side is So, the largest angle is The largest angle is So, the longest side is

Slide28:

Triangle Inequality Theorem You will learn to identify and use the Triangle Inequality Theorem. Nothing New!

Slide29:

Triangle Inequality Theorem greater a + b > c a + c > b b + c > a

Slide30:

Triangle Inequality Theorem Can 16, 10, and 5 be the measures of the sides of a triangle? No! 16 + 10 > 5 16 + 5 > 10
