Prove that in a right triangle, the median from the right angle equals half the hypotenuse.
If two angles of a triangle are equal, the opposite sides are equal, hence the triangle is isosceles.
But how do I prove that the angles are equal?

Hello, Tim28!
Prove that in a right triangle, the median from the right angle equals half the hypotenuse.
Proof without words . . .
$\displaystyle \text{Draw }AC,\,BC,\text{ and }OC.$Code:* * * * * C * o * * * * Ao - - - - * - - - - oB * O * * * * * * * * * *
$\displaystyle \text{Got it?}$
Okay, there were some words,
but they were directions for sketching the diagram.
(I couldn't type those slanted lines.)
