BAMBI is a mnemonic device. Its use helps students remember that, in a triangle, three lines — the line formed by bisecting the vertex angle that has a different measure from the other angles, the altitude from that vertex to the opposite base, and the median from that vertex to that base — are all the same line if the triangle is isosceles:

B: Bisector
A: Altitude
M: Median
B: Base
I: Isosceles
