What is the Centroid Theorem?

The centroid of a triangle is located at 2/3 the distance from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. Ex.) AP=2/3AB


What is the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem?

If a point is on the perpendicular bisector of a segment, then it is equidistant to the endpoints of a segment.


What is the Converse of the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem?

If a point is equidistant to the endpoints of a segment, then it is on the perpendicular bisector of the segment.


What is the Angle Bisector Theorem?

If a point is on the bisector of an angle, then that point is equidistant from the sides of the angle.


What is the Converse of the Angle Bisector Theorem?

If a point is equidistant from the sides of an angle, then it is on the angle bisector.
