## Study Notes

### Logical Statements and Theorems

• Contrapositive: If not B, then not A (~B → ~A). Useful in proofs for establishing the validity of statements.
• Converse: If B, then A (B → A). Not logically equivalent to the original statement.
• Inverse: If not A, then not B (~A → ~B). Also not logically equivalent.
• Theorem: A statement proven through logical deduction.
• Corollary: A statement that naturally follows from a theorem.
• Postulate/Axiom: A statement accepted as true without proof, forming the foundation of geometric reasoning.

### Angles and Segments

• Angle Types:
• Zero Angle: Measures 0 degrees.
• Straight Angle: Measures 180 degrees.
• Right Angle: Measures 90 degrees.
• Acute Angle: Less than 90 degrees.
• Obtuse Angle: More than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.
• Angle Bisector: A ray dividing an angle into two equal parts.
• Adjacent Angles: Share a common side and vertex.
• Supplementary Angles: The sum equals 180 degrees.
• Complementary Angles: The sum equals 90 degrees.

### Triangle Properties

• Types of Triangles:
• Acute Triangle: All angles are acute.
• Right Triangle: One angle is 90 degrees.
• Obtuse Triangle: One angle is obtuse.
• Isosceles Triangle: At least two sides are congruent.
• Scalene Triangle: No sides are congruent.
• Triangle Inequality Theorem: The sum of the lengths of any two sides must be greater than the third side.
• Angle Sum Theorem: The sum of measures in a triangle equals 180 degrees.

### Triangle Congruence and Similarity

• Congruent Triangles: Corresponding parts are congruent (CPCTC).
• AAS, ASA, SAS, SSS Postulates: Conditions under which triangles can be proven congruent based on angles and sides.
• Similar Triangles: Figures with the same shape but not necessarily the same size. Proportional sides and equal angles (AA Similarity Postulate and SSS Similarity Theorem).

### Proportional Relationships

• Scale Factor: Ratio of the lengths of corresponding sides in similar figures.
• Triangle Proportionality Theorem: A parallel line divides two sides of a triangle proportionally.
• Cross Products Property: In a proportion, the product of the extremes equals the product of the means.

### Geometric Figures

• Polygon Interior Angles: Sum of interior angles in an n-sided polygon is (n-2) × 180.
• Exterior Angles: Sum is always 360 degrees regardless of the number of sides.
• Common Polygons:
• Decagon: 10 sides.
• Dodecagon: 12 sides.
• Heptagon: 7 sides.
• Nonagon: 9 sides.

### Transformations

• Rigid Motion: Transformation that does not change size or shape.
• Types of Transformations:
• Translation: Moving points in a specified direction.
• Rotation: Circular movement around a point.
• Reflection: Creating a mirror image.
• Dilation: Changing size by a scale factor, not a rigid motion.

### Special Points in Triangles

• Centroid: Intersection point of the triangle's medians.
• Orthocenter: Intersection of all altitudes of a triangle.
• Circumcenter: Center of the circumscribed circle of the triangle.
• Incenter: Center of the inscribed circle within the triangle.

### Properties of Line Segments

• Midpoint: Divides a segment into two equal lengths.
• Endpoint: Point at either end of a line segment.
• Perpendicular Bisector: Splits a segment at a right angle.

### Angle Relationships with Lines

• Transversal: Line that intersects two or more lines at different points.
• Corresponding Angles: Non-adjacent angles on the same side of a transversal, with one angle interior and the other exterior.
• Alternate Interior Angles: Angles on opposite sides of the transversal and inside the parallel lines.

• Skew Lines: Non-parallel lines that do not intersect and are not coplanar.
• Linear Pair: Adjacent angles that are supplementary.
• Angle of Incidence and Reflection: Fundamental concepts in optics related to the behavior of light when it meets surfaces.

These concise summaries provide a framework for studying geometry concepts and can serve as a quick reference.
