6 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y First Exmple s first exmple, we ll do Pythgors Theorem. First we drw the tringle: 6

7 s first tsk, let s mke the ngle right. To do this, we select the segments nd, then click the perpendiculr button: Notice tht there is now perpendiculr constrint symbol between the two line segments. Now we need to set the distnce between nd to be x. To do this, we select the segment nd click the distnce constrint button You will get n edit box with the preset vlue of. hnge this to x. Similrly, set the constrint of y between nd : 7

8 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y 8

9 Now we re redy to disply the vlue of the hypotenuse. Select the segment nd the lculte istnce button The => sign in front of the mesurement shows tht it is n output. 9

10 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Tringles The following exmples explore spects of tringles: 10

11 Exmple 1: ltitude of right ngled tringle b +b b 11

12 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple : ltitude of the symmetricl ltitude of n isosceles tringle x x -b 4 +x b 1

13 Exmple 3: ltitude of the non-symmetricl ltitude of n isosceles tringle x x b x b - b4 4 x b 13

14 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 4: ltitude of tringle defined by side lengths Heron s formul sys tht the re of tringle is ( + b + c)( + b c)( b + c)( + b + c) 4 You ll need to expnd the expression to see the reltionship to the ltitude below: b + b b - b 4 - c 4 c c 4 c 4 c 14

15 Exmple 5: ltitude of n Isosceles Tringle n isosceles tringle is defined by bse length nd one ngle. Wht is its ltitude? sin(θ) cos(θ) θ 15

16 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 6: Tringle res Two sides nd the included ngle: θ b sin(θ) b 16

17 Two sides nd the non included ngle: b -b sin(θ) +b cos(θ) sin(θ) b θ 17

18 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Three sides: +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 4 c b 18

19 Exmple 7: Intersection of the Medins of Right ngled Tringle Medins will be esy to specify when we hve the Midpoint construction. However, they cn lso be specified simply by setting the distnce to the end of the medin to be hlf the specified length of the side: E F +b 3 b b 19

20 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 8: entroid of generl tringle We look t the centroid (intersection of the medins). We check the length of the medin nd the loction of the incenter on tht medin: 9 + b 9 - c 9 E F + b - c 4 b c c We see tht the centroid is locted /3 of the wy down the medin. 0

21 lterntively, if we constrin the tringle by specifying its vertices, we obtin this formul for the loction of the centroid: x 1,y 1 F x 0 +x 1 +x y 0 +y 1 +y, 3 3 x 0,y 0 E x,y 1

22 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 9: ngle of Medin Given tringle with sides length,b nd included ngle θ we derive the ngle the medin mkes with the other side of the tringle: rctn -b sin(θ) -+b cos(θ) rctn - b sin(θ) - +b θ b

23 Exmple 10: Orthocenter We look t the orthocenter (intersection of the ltitudes) of tringle. gin we derive n expression for its distnce from vertex of the tringle. b F b -b +c +b+c (+b-c) (-b+c) (-+b+c) c E 3

24 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 11: Orthocenter oordintes This exmple is tken from the pper Lernen mit einem neuen Tschenrechner Given tht nd re locted t points (,b) nd (c,b) respectively, nd tht point cn move long the line y=d, we find the coordintes of the intersection of the ltitudes. The locus is qudrtic, s shown both by its shpe nd by its eqution. -X -b - c+b d+x (+c)+y (b-d)=0 (t,d) F (,b) E (c,b) 4

25 Exmple 1: ircumcircle rdius The center of the circumcircle of tringle is the intersection of the perpendiculr bisectors. Exmining the expression for the distnce from one vertex to the intersection point shows tht it is symmetric. Hence will be the sme, whichever vertex is chosen (try it). b b F b c +b+c -(+b-c) (-b+c) (-b-c) E c 5

26 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Of course, more direct pproch is just to drw the circumcircle: b c +b+c (+b-c) (-b+c) (-+b+c) b c 6

27 Exmple 13: ircumcircle rdius in terms of vectors If we hve vectors defining circle, wht is the circle s rdius: u 0 -u 1 u 0 v + 0 -u 0 u 1 v 0 -u 0 v 1 -u 0 +u 1 + -v 0 +v 1 + u 0 v + 0 -v +v +v u 1 v 0 -u 0 v 1 -u 0 +u 1 + -v 0 +v 1 u 1 u 0 v 1 v 0 7

28 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 14: Incircle Rdius b E +b-c -b+c -+b+c +b+c c 8

29 Exmple 15: Vector joining the incircle with the vertex of tringle defined by vectors u 1 u 0 +v0 +u0 u 1 +v1 u 0 v 0 u 0 +v0 + u1 +v1 + u0 -u 1 + -v0 +v 1 v 1 u 0 +v0 +v0 u 1 +v1 F u 0 +v0 + u1 +v1 + u0 -u 1 + -v0 +v 1 E u 1 v 1 Exmine the expression the denomintor of ech coefficient is the perimeter of the tringle, so the vector cn be written: u v 0 0 u u u u P 1 P + v u

30 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 16: Incircle enter in rycentric oordintes x 1,y 1 E x,y x 0,y 0 x -x 0 +x 1 + y 0 -y 1 +x 1 -x 0 +x + y 0 -y +x 0 -x 1 +x + y 1 -y -x 0 +x 1 + y 0 -y 1 + -x 0 +x + y 0 -y + -x 1 +x + y 1 -y y -x 0 +x 1 + y 0 -y 1 +y 1 -x 0 +x + y 0 -y +y 0 -x 1 +x + y 1 -y, -x 0 +x 1 + y 0 -y 1 + -x 0 +x + y 0 -y + -x 1 +x + y 1 -y If we let =, b= nd c= nd let, nd be the position vectors of the points,, then the incircle center is: + b + c + b + c 30

31 Exmple 17: How does the point of contct with the incircle split line +b-c G b H -b-c F c E 31

32 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 18: Length of line joining vertex with the point of contct between the incircle nd the opposite side E b - b 3 - b c+ b c+3 c + b c - c 3 H b c 3

33 Exmple 19: Pythgors-Like igrm rw tringle (not necessrily right ngled), nd set the side lengths to be, b nd c. Now drw squres on ech side, constrining them with right ngles nd lengths of sides. Now look t the distnce between neighboring corners of the squres: -b + c c c c b - + b + c + b -c b b 33

34 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 0: Penequilterl Tringle Strting with tringle whose sides re length,b,c, we construct squres on ech side, join the corners of the squres, then join the midpoints of these lines to crete tringle: F J G E c L b K I H 34

35 The tringle looks to the nked eye s if it is equilterl. Try drgging the originl points nd observe tht the new tringle still looks equilterl: I c H G K b L E J F 35

36 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Is it in fct? + b + 3 c 4 + +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c F J b + c + +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c I G E c L b K K I H 4 + b 4 + c b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 16 Not quite, we observe the sides re gurnteed to be close in size, but not identicl unless the originl tringle is isosceles. In fct, the difference in squres of the sides of the new c tringle is. 4 4 Notice we cn repet the process drwing squres on JK, KL nd JL. The difference in c squres of the ensuing sides will be

37 y repeting this process, we cn crete tringle s close s we like to n equilterl tringle, but still not exctly one. O V M F J P G E N L b K U I H T Q R 37

38 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 1: nother Penequilterl Tringle We cn do similr construction bsed on equilterl tringles drwn on the sides of n originl tringle: E Side Length b c b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 8 G b H re c b + 3 c +5 +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 3 I E We see tht the difference in squres of the sides of the new tringle corresponding to c nd b is. If we repet the process, this tringle will eventully become equilterl, but not s quickly s the previous tringle. In fct, if S(n) is the sum of the sides t the nth stge in the itertion, nd (n) is the re of the tringle on the nth stge of the itertion, the bove equtions for side length nd re show tht the following re true: 38

39 ) ( 8 5 1) ( 3 3 ) ( 1) ( 6 3 1) ( 8 5 ) ( + = + = n n S n n n S n S Which reltion we cn solve to give: ( ) = (0) (0) ) ( ) ( S n n S n

40 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple : Folding right ngled tringle If you crete second right ngled tringle by cutting perpendiculr to the hypotenuse, then tht tringle is similr to the originl one. Here re its side lengths: b x +b b x E x 40

41 Exmple 3: Interior point of n Equilterl Tringle If point is interior to n equilterl tringle, the sum of the perpendiculr distnces to the sides of the tringle is independent of the loction of the point. The following construction shows this (try dding the three distnces). F x- y 6 G y 3 (- x+y) 3 E 3 x- y 3 x 41

42 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Here is simpler wy to define this one, using perpendiculr distnce constrints. In this cse we specify x to be the perpendiculr distnce between nd, nd y to be the perpendiculr distnce from to. We then sk for the perpendiculr distnce from to. x y - 3 +x+y Notice tht the sum of these 3 distnces is 3, which is independent of x nd y. 4

43 Exmple 4: Right ngled tringle in semi-circle This digrm shows tht the center of the hypotenuse of right ngled tringle is hlf hypotenuse wy from the opposite vertex: d d d 43

44 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 5: Line Joining the pex to bse of n isosceles tringle Tke n isosceles tringle whose equl sides hve length nd divide its bse in lengths x, y. Join the dividing point to the opposite vertex, nd exmine its length. The expression is surprisingly simple: -x y x y From this result, you cn deduce, for exmple, tht for ny two chords through prticulr point interior to circle, the product of the lengths of the chord segments on either side of the point is the sme. 44

45 Exmple 6: re of the tringle is: re of Tringle defined by vectors u 1 v 0 u 0 v - 1 u 0 v 0 u 1 v 1 45

46 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 7: Similr Tringle Lengths on similr tringle go by rtio: b E c b c d c d b E c 46

47 Exmple 8: res of tringles bounded by evins The rtios of res in this digrm re simple qudrtics in t. n you derive these qudrtics from the sine rule? re of z 4 +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 4 re of F z 3 t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 4 - t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 4 t<1 z 3 t-t re of F/ = z 4 t<1 b t b E t F c c t re of EF z 0 +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c re of EF/ = 1-3 t+3 t z 0 z +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c 4 3 t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c > t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c t +b+c +b-c -b+c -+b+c >

48 U S I N G S Y M O L I G E O M E T R Y Exmple 9: ecomposing vector into components prllel nd perpendiculr to second vector v 0 -u 1 v 0 +u 0 v 1 u 1 v 1 -u 0 -v0 u 0 u 1 v 0 -u 0 v 1 -u 0 -v0 u 0 -u 0 u 1 -v 0 v 1 u 0 v 0 -u 0 -v0 v 0 -u 0 u 1 -v 0 v 1 -u 0 -v0 48
