# Internal bisectors and incenter of a triangle

Not what you're looking for?

1- Given triangle ABC, prove that an internal bisectors of an angle of a triangle divides the opposite sides (internally) into two segments proportional to the adjacent sides of the triangle. That is prove that DB/DC = AB/AC. (D is the point where e internal bisector of <A meets with BC)

2- Given triangle ABC with in-center I prove that < BIC = 90 + ½ (< BAC)

Need to prove, BD/DC = AB / AC

Lets use the sin rule for a triangle,

For triangle, ABD

BD/sin a = AB /sin (<BDA) ------------------------------- (1)

<BDA = 180 - (b+a),

So sin (<BDA ) = sin [180 - (b+a)] = sin (b+a)

Substituting in (1),

BD/sin a = AB /sin (b+a) --------------------(2)

For triangle ADC using sin rule,

DC /sin (a) = AC / sin (<ADC) ...
