Thales’ Theorem – Explanation and Examples

Thales’ Theorem – Explanation and Examples

Thales’ theorem tells us that the diameter of a circle always forms a right triangle when we connect it to any point located on the circumference of the circle. This theorem can be proved by using two isosceles triangles inscribed in a circle and using their angles....

Problems with Thales’ Theorem

Thales’ theorem is a special case of the inscribed angles theorem. This theorem says that if we have a triangle inscribed in a circle with the diameter as the hypotenuse, the triangle will be a right triangle and will form a right angle at the vertex located at any...

Properties of Pascal’s Triangle

Pascal’s triangle is a type of number pattern. The numbers are arranged in a way that reflects a triangle. First, the 1 is placed at the top. Then, the rest of the numbers are arranged in a triangular pattern. The numbers we get in each step are the sum of the two...
