# Isosceles Theorem Worksheets

What is the Isosceles Theorem? Solving isosceles triangles requires special considerations since it has unique properties that are unlike other types of triangles. Therefore, when youâ€™re trying to prove those triangles are congruent, you need to understand two theorems beforehand. These two isosceles theorems are the Base Angles Theorem and the Converse of the Base Angles Theorem. The base angles theorem suggests that if you have two sides of a triangle that are congruent, then the angles opposite to them are also congruent. On the other hand, the converse of the Base Angles Theorem showcase that if two angles of a triangle are congruent, then the sides opposite to them will also be congruent.
