# How do you do two-column geometrical proofs?

Draw a table with two columns;

in the first column write things you know ("Statements" or "Assertions");

in the second column write the Reason you know the corresponding assertion is true.

#{: (color(black)("Assertion")," | ",color(black)("Reason")), (bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"))," | ",bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXX"))), (/_AMD+/_DMB = 180^@," | ","Definition of a straight line"), (bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"))," | ",bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXX"))), (/_CMB+/_DMB = 180^@," | ","Definition of a straight line"), (bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"))," | ",bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXX"))), (/_AMD+/_DMB = /_CMB+/_DMB," | ","Thing that are equal to the same"), (," | "," thing are equal to each other"), (bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"))," | ",bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXX"))), (/_AMD = /_CMB," | ","Subtracting the same amount from"), (," | "," both sides of an equality leaves an equality"), (bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX")),,bar(color(white)("XXXXXXXXXXXX"))) :}#

Two-column geometrical proofs involve presenting a geometric proof in a structured format with two columns: one for statements and one for reasons. In the statements column, each step of the proof is listed, while in the reasons column, the justification or reason for each step is provided. Here's a basic outline of how to do a two-column geometrical proof:

- Begin with the given information or assumptions.
- Identify the theorem or property you plan to use in each step.
- Write down the statements of the proof, starting with the given information and progressing logically to the desired conclusion.
- In the reasons column, provide the justification for each step, citing the theorem, property, or previously proven statement that justifies the step.
- Continue this process until you have logically proven the desired conclusion.

It's important to maintain clarity and coherence throughout the proof, ensuring that each step follows logically from the previous one and that all statements are properly justified. Additionally, it's helpful to use clear notation and diagrams to illustrate the geometric relationships involved. With practice and familiarity with geometric principles and theorems, you can effectively construct two-column geometrical proofs to demonstrate the validity of geometric propositions.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
