  Triangle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A perpendicular bisector of a triangle is a straight line passing through the midpoint of a side and being perpendicular to it, i.e.
A median of a triangle is a straight line through a vertex and the midpoint of the opposite side, and divides the triangle into two equal areas.
The area S of a triangle is S = ½bh, where b is the length of any side of the triangle (the base) and h (the altitude) is the perpendicular distance between the base and the vertex not on the base.

The three sides and angles constitute the six elements of a triangle; it is customary to denote the angular points by capital letters and refer to the angles by these symbols; the sides are usually denoted by the lower case letter corresponding to that of the opposite angular point.
The angles at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal and conversely; hence it follows that an equilateral triangle is also equiangular and conversely (i.
We may here notice that the perpendiculars from the vertices of a triangle to the opposite sides are concurrent; their meet is called the orthocentre, and the triangle obtained by joining the feet of the perpendiculars is called the pedal triangle.

Triangles can be classified according to the number of their equal sides.
So, a triangle with 3 equal sides is called equilateral, triangles with 2 equal sides are isosceles and finally a triangle with no equal sides is called scalene.
Triangles can also be classified according to the size of the greatest of its three (inner) angles.

The problem is: given a diagram that looks like an isosceles triangle the segments that are formed by the two "base" angle bisectors and the sides opposite the angles are given to be congruent in length.
Given only that these segments, which happen to bisect these angles and terminate on the legs, are equal in length--prove that the triangle is indeed isosceles.
However, using trigonometry it is pretty simple: apply the Law of Sines to the two triangles formed by the angle bisectors and the apex of the main triangle.
