Expert Answer:

In triangle ABC and PQR, AB = AC. angle C = angle P and angle B = angle Q.

In such case these triangles are called isosceles triangles.

The reason is described below.


In triangle ABC; AB = AC.

So, triangle ABC is an isosceles triangle.


It is given that

Angle C = angle P                                               … (1)

Angle B = angle Q.                                              … (2)


Given that in triangle ABC; AB = AC.

So, angle B = angle C                                        … (3)


From (1), (2) and (3);

Angle P = angle Q


So, PR = QR in triangle PQR.


This shows that the triangle PQR is an isosceles triangle.
