Ceva's Theorem is the criteria for determining the congruence of cevians of a triangle. Cevians are

**line segments**or**rays**that extend from a given vertex to the opposite side such as medians, altitudes, and angle bisectors. Cevians are not always found within the triangle. The theorem states that in triangle ABC with points D, E, and F respectively on lines BC, CA, and AB, lines AD, BE, and CF are congruent if and only if the below ratios multiplied equal**1**.
