In triangle ABC, altitudes are drawn from the vertices B and C on AC and AB respectively such that BL=CM. Prove that Triangle BCM congruent triangle CBL.

Kindly give answer to the above question?

 

Given that:

In ΔABC, altitude are drawn from the vertices B and C on AC and AB respectively such that      BL = CM.

                 

 

To prove:      ΔBCM ΔCBL

 

Since BL and CM are altitudes

⇒ ∠ALB = ∠AMC = 90°

So, ΔBCM and ΔCBL are right angled triangle.

Also given BL = CM and BC is a common side in both triangles.

 

⇒ Hypotenuse and one side of triangle BCM is equal to hypotenuse and one side of other side right angled triangle.

Hence by RHS congruence criterion, ΔBCM ΔCBL
