### Thales' Theorem

Hello everyone,
I noticed that math is fun doesn't have a topic for Thales' Theorem (I searched it, do let me know if there is) Maybe add it in?

### Re: Thales' Theorem

I guess, but by searching it online you can find lots of places where the theorem is stated and proved.

I have included the Theorem (statement) in the Formulas.
