1 Higher Geometry Problems ( Look up Eucidean Geometry on Wikipedia, and write down the English translation given of each of the first four postulates of Euclid. Rewrite each postulate as a clear statement in modern English, and illustrate with a picture. (2 Rewrite the English translation of Euclid s original fifth postulate using more clear, modern language. Draw a picture that illustrates the statement. ( Write down Playfair s Postulate, and explain why it is equivalent to Euclid s fifth postulate. (4 Explain why if we say that a line segment in the plane is vertical, this description of the line segment is not a geometric description. (5 If we consider a finite set S of points in the plane, explain why the number of points of S is a geometric quantity. (6 Give the precise definition of a triangle. (7 Give the precise definition of a quadrilateral. (8 Give the precise definition of a rectangle. (9 Give the precise definition of a parallelogram. (0 Give the precise definition of a circle in the plane. (Note: a circle does not include its insides. ( Give the precise definition of a disk in the plane. (2 Write down a precise proof that the sum of the measures of the (interior angles in a triangle is π, the measure of a straight angle. ( Write down a statement and proof of the formula for the area of a parallelogram. (4 Write down the precise definition of equality of angles. (5 Prove the exterior angle theorem. That is, let the triangle ABC be given. Let D be a point on the ray AB but not on AB. Then m CBD = m BAC + m BCA. (6 Prove that the fact that the sum of angles in a triangle is equal to a straight angle implies Playfair s Postulate. (Thus, the triangle fact may be used in place of the Parallel Postulate. (7 Prove the formula for the area of a triangle. (8 Give the precise definition of an isosceles triangle and the precise definition of an equilateral triangle. (9 Prove that if triangle ABC is isosceles with AB = AC, then B = C. (20 Show how to construct the perpendicular bisector of a line segment (and thus its midpoint using a collapsing compass and unmarked straightedge. Prove that your construction works. (2 Show how to construct a line that is perpendicular to a given circle at a given point, using a collapsing compass and unmarked straightedge. You may not assume that you have the center of the circle. Prove that your construction works. (22 Show how to construct a tangent line to a circle at a given point on the circle with an unmarked straight edge and collapsible compass. Prove that your construction works. (2 Explain how to construct the center of a given circle. Prove that your construction works. (24 Explain how to construct the diameter of a given circle that contains a given point on the circle. Prove that your construction works.
2 2 (25 Prove the SAS triangle congruence theorem, using basic notions only. (26 Prove the ASA triangle congruence theorem. You may assume that the SAS triangle congruence theorem has been proved. (27 Suppose that l and l 2 are two different lines that intersect at a point p in the plane. Let l be any other line in the plane. Prove that at least one of l and l 2 must intersect l. [Make sure that your argument is short and concise.] (28 Prove that if L, L 2, and L are three lines in the plane, then if L L 2 and L 2 L then L L. (29 Prove the SAA triangle congruence theorem. You may assume that the ASA triangle congruence theorem has been proved. (0 Prove the SSS triangle congruence theorem. You may assume that the SAS triangle congruence theorem has been proved. ( Prove that there is no SSA triangle congruence theorem. (Hint: give a counterexample. (2 Given any line and a point not on the line, show how to construct the line that is perpendicular to the line and that goes through that given point, using a collapsing compass and unmarked straightedge. Prove that your construction works. ( Given any line and a point not on the line, show how to construct the line that is parallel to the line and that goes through that given point, using a collapsing compass and unmarked straightedge. Prove that your construction works. (4 Prove that lengths can be copied, using a collapsing compass and unmarked straightedge. That is, assume that the line segment AB is given, and assume that another point C is given, and that a ray with vertex C is given. Prove that you can construct a point D on the ray so that AB = CD. (Hint: Draw AC. Construct lines perpendicular to AC at A and at C. Figure out a way to make new points E and F on these new lines so that AB = AE and then AE = CF. Use F to make the point D. (5 By proving that lengths can be copied (as in the last problem using a collapsing compass and unmarked straight edge, you are showing that you any construction made with a collapsing compass and unmarked straight edge can also be done with a rigid compass and unmarked straight edge. Therefore, to show that something can be constructed, it is sufficient to show that it can be constructed using a rigid compass and unmarked straight edge. This is the Rigid Compass Theorem. Explain the reasoning behind this. (6 Prove that angles can be copied using a collapsible compass and unmarked straight edge. You may assume that we have already shown the Rigid Compass Theorem. (That is, assume ABC is given and that the line segment DE is given. Prove that we may construct a point F such that ABC = DEF. (7 Show how to bisect an angle using a straight edge and compass construction. Prove that your construction works. (8 Prove that a simple quadrilateral is a parallelogram if and only if its opposite sides are congruent. (9 Demonstrate that the word simple cannot be deleted from the previous exercise. (40 Prove that in a parallelogram, opposite angles are congruent. (4 Prove or disprove that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. (42 Prove or disprove that the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent.
3 (4 Prove or disprove that if the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. (44 Prove or disprove that if the diagonals of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid.

(47 Prove or disprove that a quadrilateral is a kite if the diagonals are perpendicular. (48 Prove or disprove that if a quadrilateral is a kite, then the diagonals are perpendicular. (49 Prove that the number n is constructible, if n is any positive integer. (50 Prove that 75 is irrational. (5 Prove the following versions of the Carpenter s Rectangle Theorem: (a Given a quadrilateral ABCD, suppose that B is a right angle and that AB = CD. Show that if the diagonals have the same length (i.e. AC = BD, then ABCD is a rectangle. (b Given a quadrilateral ABCD such that AB = CD and AD = BC, prove that if the diagonals have the same length (i.e. AC = BD, then ABCD is a rectangle. (52 Let P QR be an isosceles triangle, with P Q = P R. Let S and T be points of QR that are spaced so that QS = ST = T R = QR. Construct the line segments P S and P T. Prove that P ST is an isosceles triangle. (5 Let ABC be a triangle such that the perpendicular bisector of AB intersects BC at its midpoint. Prove that ABC is a right triangle. (54 Let F GHJ be a simple quadrilateral. Prove that the sum of the measures of any three interior angles of the quadrilateral must be greater than 80 and less than 60. (55 Prove that 5 is irrational. (56 Give two different proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. (57 Given any quadrilateral ABCD, prove that the midpoints of the sides are either collinear or form the vertices of a parallelogram. (58 Let ABC be any given triangle. Let M and P be points on the line segments AB and AC, respectively, such that AM = 4MB and AP = 4P C. Construct the line segment MP. Prove that ABC is similar to AMP. (59 True or False. Provide proof. (a If a is a quadrilateral, then a is not a square. (b If a is a rhombus, then a is a kite. (c If a point X is on the perpendicular bisector of a line segment AB, then AX = BX. (d Every rectangle has three sides. (e All triangles are equilateral. (f Some triangles are equilateral. (g No isosceles triangle is a right triangle. (60 Find the converse of each statement above, and determine if it is true or false. Provide proof. (6 Suppose that ABC is given such that AB = 5, BC = 9, AC = 7. Let X, Y, Z be points on AB, BC, and AC, respectively, and suppose that AX = 2 and AZ = 4. If the line segments AY, BZ, and CX are concurrent, find BY. Justify your steps.
4 4 (62 Let ABC be an equilateral triangle with side length 8. Derive the formula for the height of this triangle, using the Pythagorean theorem. Then find the area of the triangle. (6 An isosceles right triangle has side lengths x and x + 2. Find x. Justify the steps. (64 Suppose that a triangle ABC has points P on AB, Q on BC, and R on AC. Suppose that AP = BQ = x > and BP = QC = CR =. Suppose in addition that the line segments AQ, BR and CP are concurrent. (a Prove that AR = x 2. (b Prove that ABC is not an equilateral triangle. (65 Let ABC be a given triangle, with points D on BC, E on AC, and F on AB. We construct the line segments AD, BE, and CF. Suppose that F B = = DB, and F A DC suppose that AD, BE, and CF are concurrent at a point p. Prove that E is the midpoint of AC. (66 Let XY Z be an equilateral triangle, and let P, Q, and R be on XY, Y Z, and XZ, respectively. Suppose that XP = Y P =, Y Q =.5, and P, Q, and R are collinear. Find ZR. (67 State the converse to Ceva s Theorem. (68 Prove that, given three points of the plane that are not colinear, there exists a unique circle that contains the three points.

Prove that either the original triangle is isosceles or that the original triangle is a right triangle. (70 Using analytic geometry, prove that the medians of any given triangle ABC are concurrent (at the centroid G. Also, prove that the height of G above side BC is exactly the height of A above BC. (7 Using analytic geometry, prove that the perpendicular bisectors of any triangle are concurrent.
