### Conventions for Geometry Proofs

I really need help with this. In my maths exams I can easily find the answers for the questions. But I'm losing valueble marks becausing I'm not writing the proofs correctly. I don't know how! And when it is explained in class I just don't get it, I don't know which proves to use where. I keep getting co-interior and alternate and stuff all mixed up. Can anyone help me with some good methods for proof in gemoetry. I just can't seem to express my logic mathematically.

"When subtracted from 180, the sum of the square-root of the two equal angles of an isocoles triangle squared will give the square-root of the remaining angle squared."

Here is a link on Geometry proofs. I hope it is of some help to you!

It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge - Enrico Fermi.

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.
