What is the missing reason in step 13?
1. The altitude of an acute angle in an obtuse triangle intersects the extension of the opposite side of the triangle
2. The altitude of a triangle consists of infinitely many points

Is this proof also valid for the other angles in the triangle? Namely, $BC^2 = AB^2 + AC^2 - 2 AB \ AC cos(m ang A)$ and $AC^2 = AB^2 + BC^2 - 2 AB \ BC \ cos(m ang B)$. Why or why not?
1. Yes, since if an altitude was constructed from either remaining vertex, the form of the proof for these other formulas would be identical.
2. Yes, since $m ang A$ and $m ang B$ are both larger than $m ang C$. Therefore the same proof is true for these other formulas.
3. No, since the altitudes from the other vertices may or may not intersect the other sides.
4. No, this proof is only valid for the smallest angle of an acute triangle.
1. $sin(m ang BAE) = (AE)/(AB)$
2. $sin(m ang BAE) = (BE)/(AB)$
3. $sin(m ang BAE) = (BE)/(BC)$
4. $sin(m ang BAE) = (BE)/(AE)$
