Given: ABC is a triangle right angled at C. A line through the mid-point M of hypotenuse AB and parallel to BC intersects AC at D.

To prove :  \small CM=MA=\frac{1}{2}AB

Proof : In \triangleABC,     

       M is the midpoint of AB.                (Given)

                   DM || BC            (Given)

  By converse of midpoint theorem,

                    D is the midpoint of AC  i.e.  AD = DC.

In \triangle AMD  and \triangle CMD,

        AD = DC    (proved above)

       \angleADM = \angle CDM    (Each  right angle)

            DM = DM      (Common)

           \triangle AMD \cong\triangle CMD      (By SAS)

             AM = CM         (CPCT)

       But ,\small AM=\frac{1}{2}AB

  Hence,\small CM=MA=\frac{1}{2}AB
