Distance of a Point from the Sides of a Triangle
- Guillermo Bautista
- Equilateral Triangles
Move point P and make a conjecture about the sum of the shortest distance from P to the sides of the equilateral triangle. Only use the Hint slider if necessary.
1.) Move the sliders to the extreme right. What do you observe? 2.) What does the animation tell you about your conjecture? 3.) Justify why your conjecture is correct or not.
