Question from racheal, a student:
how to i prove angle ACB is not a rt. angle
when given AT=BT=5;CT=4 in a indirect proof?


Can you prove it? Is it even true?

Try to find an example where ACB is a right angle. To make things easy, try putting C on the segment TA. Then figure out what CB has to be.

Good Hunting!
