Geometry proof helpCan someone please help me do a 2 column proof similar to the one below with the given Triangle? Last edited by helpmewithproofs (20130817 10:59:58) #2 20130818 16:01:25
Re: Geometry proof helpHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130820 00:57:32

Re: Geometry proof helpThe two column format is just a neat way to write down the proof. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #5 20130827 03:38:10
Re: Geometry proof helpDid a computer write that? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
