Thales midpoint theorem

Think everything is half

Thales midpoint theorem think everything is a half

The magician chopped his assistant through her midpoint (in half).

Thales used further ideas to determine his midpoint theorem that said.

If you half the triangle to create an other parallel line of the bottom length

If the midpoints of a triangles sides are marked off i.e.

D is half way between A and C

E is half way between B and C

Then A to B must be parallel to DE

If the smaller parallel line is exactly half of the larger line then the midpoint is realised

And

DE is `1/2` length of AB

Yes HALF

`DE=1/2AB`
