Hint to
interact with the figure below: Click the
red button ()
on the figure to start the animation. Drag points A, C, D and line
AC to change the figure. Press P and click the left mouse button to start the step by step
construction, help.
Proposition
Given a triangle ABC and a trapezoid ADEC (DE // AC), as shown.
AE and CD meet at F, and BF meets DE and AC at N and M
respectively. Prove that M and N are the midpoints of AC and DE respectively.
Interactive Geometry: You can alter the figure
dynamically in order to test and prove (or disproved)
conjectures and gain mathematical insight that is less
readily available with static drawings by hand.
