An indirect proof is a type of mathematical proof that uses a contradiction to prove that a statement is true. In other words, indirect proofs assume that the statement is false and then use reasoning to show that this leads to a contradiction. This type of proof is often used in geometry, as it can be difficult to directly prove certain geometric statements. Indirect proof can be challenging, but practice can help. Our online resource provides indirect proof problems and questions with answers and explanations. These can be a great way to learn and understand this type of proof.
