```7.5 Proportions in Triangles
• Side-Splitter Theorem
– If a line is parallel to one side of a triangle and
intersects the other two sides, then it divides those
sides proportionally.
Using the Side-Splitter Theorem
• What is the value of x in
the diagram at the right?

Corollary to the Side-Splitter Theorem
• If three parallel lines intersect two transversals, then
the segments intercepted on the transversals are
proportional.
Triangle-Angle-Bisector Theorem
• If a ray bisects an angle of a triangle, then it
divides the opposite side into two segments that
are proportional to the other two sides of the
triangle.
