Splitting Hypotenuse (Posted on 2011-04-03) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Two rays from the right-angled vertex of an isosceles right triangle split the hypotenuse into three sgments.

Prove that the three segments can be used to form a right triangle (the middle segment as the hypotenuse) if and only if the angle between the rays is 45.
