# Very basic geometry theorems.Try to find it's difficult applications, and prove them

Right Angles- All right angles are congruent.

Straight Angles- All straight angles are congruent.

Congruent Supplements- Supplements of the same angle, or congruent angles, are congruent.
Congruent Complements- Complements of the same angle, or congruent angles, are congruent.
Linear Pair- If two angles form a linear pair, they are supplementary.

Vertical Angles- Vertical angles are congruent.

Triangle Sum- The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180º.

Exterior Angle- The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the two non-adjacent interior angles.

The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is greater than either non-adjacent interior angle.

Base Angle Theorem-

(Isosceles Triangle) If two sides of a triangle are congruent, the angles opposite these sides are congruent.

Base Angle Converse-

(Isosceles Triangle) If two angles of a triangle are congruent, the sides opposite these angles are congruent. Note by Sattik Biswas

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

So you want us to derive the entirety of Euclidean geometry again? :P

No. I mean if you want to do fine go ahead. What I am trying to say is that this are among some of the very basic theorems, using these basic theorems many difficult theorems has been proved. So I am just telling to explore that world a little bit.

Oh okay, I didn't mean for you to get offended or anything.
Perhaps this belongs more in a wiki?

Yes it does sir.
