**Short Answer Type Questions**

Question 1.

In the given figure, AB = AC and BD = EC then prove that ΔADE is an isosceles triangle.

Solution.

In ΔABD and ΔAEC

AB = AC (given) …(i)

∠ABC = ∠ACB …(ii) (angle opposite to equal sides are equal)

Also BD = EC (given) …(iii)

From (i), (ii) and (iii), we have

ΔABD = ΔAEC (by SAS congruency property)

⇒ AD = AE (by c.p.c.t)

Hence, ΔADE is (RBSESolutions.com) an isosceles triangle.

Hence proved.

Question 2.

In figure, BA ⊥ AC, DE ⊥ EF, such that BA = DE and BF = CD, prove that AC = EF.

Solution.

To prove: AC = EF, we have to prove

ΔABC = ΔDEF

Here BA = DE (given) …(i)

BA ⊥ AC and DE ⊥ FE

∠BAC = ∠DEF = 90° (each) …(ii)

Also BF = CD (given) …(iii)

Adding FC in equation (iii), we get

BF + FC = CD + FC

⇒ BC = FD …(iv)

From (i), (ii) and (iv), we get

ΔABC = ΔDEF (by RHS congruency property)

⇒ AC = EF (by c.p.c.t)

Hence proved.

Question 3.

In figure, CB = AD and AB = CD. Can we say ∠ABC and ∠ADC are equal? (RBSESolutions.com) Why?

Solution.

In ΔABC and ΔADC

AB = DC

AD = CB

and AC = AC

ΔABC = ΔADC (by SSS congruency property)

So, ∠ABC = ∠ADC (by c.p.c.t)

Hence proved.

Question 4.

In figure, CN ⊥ AB, DM ⊥ AB and CN = DM. Are OC and OD equal? Why?

Solution.

In ΔOMD and ΔONC

∠OMD = ∠ONC (each 90°)

∠MOD = ∠NOC (vertically opposite angles)

and CN = DM (given)

ΔOMD = ΔONC (by AAS property)

⇒ OC = OD (by c.p.c.t)

Hence proved.

Question 5.

In figure, ∠A = 35°, ∠ABC = 100° and BD ⊥ AC, prove that ΔBDC is an isosceles triangle.

Solution.

In ΔABC,

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (the sum of the (RBSESolutions.com) interior angles of a Δ is equal to 180°)

35° + 100° + ∠C= 180°

⇒ ∠C = 180° – 135°

⇒ ∠C = 45°

But in ΔABD, BD ⊥ AC

i.e., ∠ADB = 90°

and ∠A = 35° (given)

∠ABD = 180° – 125° = 55°

∠DBC = 100° – 55° = 45°

Now, ∠DCB = ∠DBC = 45° (Proved above)

Hence BDC is an isosceles triangle.

Question 6.

In the given figure, O is the (RBSESolutions.com) middle point of both AB and CD. Prove that AC = BD and AC || BD.

Solution.

In Δ’s AOC and BOD

OA = OB

OC = OD

∠AOC = ∠BOD (vertically opposite angles)

ΔAOC = ΔBOD (by SAS congruence property)

Hence AC = BD (by c.p.c.t)

Also ∠OAC = ∠OBD (alt. angle)

AC || BD

Hence proved.

Question 7.

In figure, X and Y are the points (RBSESolutions.com) on equal sides of AB and AC such that AX = AY. Show that XC = BY.

Solution.

In ΔABC

AB = AC (given)

and AX = AY (given)

⇒ AB – AX = AC – AY

⇒ BX = CY ….(i)

Now in ΔBXC and ΔBYC

BX = CY [from (i)]

BC = BC (common)

∠B = ∠C (angle opp. to equal sides are equal)

ΔBXC = ΔBYC (by SAS property)

⇒ XC = BY (by c.p.c.t)

Hence proved.

Question 8.

In the following figures, two sides (RBSESolutions.com) of ΔABC, AB and BC and median AD are respectively equal to PQ, QR and median PM of ΔPQR.

Prove that: ΔABC = ΔPQR.

Solution.

According to question

AB = PQ (given)

Median AD = Median PM

and BC = QR

BC = QR

BD = QM

ΔABD = ΔPQM (by SSS congruency property)

∠B = ∠Q (by c.p.c.t)

Now in ΔABC and ΔPQR

AB = PQ (given)

∠B = ∠Q (proved above)

and BC = QR (given)

ΔABC = ΔPQR (by SAS congruency property)

Hence proved.

Question 9.

In figure, side QR of ΔPQR is (RBSESolutions.com) produced on both sides such that ∠PQS = ∠PRT. Prove that PQ = PR.

Solution.

In ΔPQR

∠PQS + ∠PQR = 180° (linear pair angles)

⇒ ∠PQS + ∠q = 180°

⇒ ∠q = 180° – ∠PQS …(i)

Also ∠r = 180° – ∠PRT …(ii)

But ∠PQS = ∠PRT (given) …(iii)

From (iii), eqn (i) becomes

∠q = 180° – ∠PRT …(iv)

Now from (ii) and (iv), we have

∠q = ∠r

i.e., ∠PQR = ∠PRQ

⇒ PR = PQ (converse of isosceles A theorem)

Hence proved.

Question 10.

Prove that the medians bisecting (RBSESolutions.com) the equal sides of an isosceles triangle are equal.

Solution.

Given: In ΔABC, D and E are mid-points of AB and AC respectively.

To prove: BE = CD

Proof: Since triangle ABC is (RBSESolutions.com) an isosceles triangle, then

AB = AC …(i)

and ∠ABC = ∠ACB …(ii)

D and E are mid-points of AB and AC respectively,

then DB = DA and EC = AE …(iii)

Now, in ΔBCD and ΔBCE

BC = BC (common)

∠DBC = ∠ECB by (ii)

BD = CE by (iii)

ΔBCD = ΔBCE (by SAS congruency rule)

⇒ BE = CD

Hence proved.

**Long Answer Type Questions**

Question 1.

“If two sides of a triangle are unequal (RBSESolutions.com) then the longer side has greater angle opposite to it.” Prove it.

Solution.

Given: A ΔABC in which AC > AB (say)

To prove: ∠ABC > ∠ACB

Construction: Mark a point D on AC such that AB = AD.

Join BD.

Proof: In ΔABD

AB = AD (by construction)

⇒ ∠1 = ∠2 …(i) (angles opposite to equal sides are equal)

Now in ΔBCD

∠2 > ∠DCB (ext. angle is greater than (RBSESolutions.com) one of the opposite interior angles)

⇒ ∠2 > ∠ACB …(ii) [∵ ∠ACB = ∠DCB]

From (i) and (ii), we get

∠1 > ∠ACB …(iii)

But ∠1 is a part of ∠ABC

∠ABC > ∠1 …..(iv)

Now from (iii) and (iv), we get

∠ABC > ∠ACB

Hence proved.

Question 2.

In figure, PQR is a triangle and S is (RBSESolutions.com) any point in its interior, show that SQ + SR < PQ + PR.

Solution.

Given: S is any point in the interior of ΔPQR

To prove: SQ + SR < PQ + PR

Construction: Produce QS to meet PR in T.

Proof: In ΔPQT PQ + PT > QT (sum of two sides of Δ is greater than third side)

or, PQ + PT > QS + ST …(i)

Also in ΔRST

ST + TR > RS …(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii), we get

PQ + PT + ST + TR > SQ + ST + SR

⇒ PQ + (PT + TR) > SQ + SR

⇒ PQ + PR > SQ + SR

Hence proved.

Question 3.

In figure, T is a point on side QR of ΔPQR and S is (RBSESolutions.com) a point such that RT = ST. Prove that PQ + PR > QS.

Solution.

In ΔPQR, we have

PQ + PR > QR (the sum of two sides of a triangle is greater than third side).

⇒ PQ + PR > QT + TR [∵ QT + TR = QR]

⇒ PQ + PR > QT + ST …(i) [∵ TR = ST]

In ΔQST, we have

QT + ST > QS …(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we get

PQ + PR > QS.

Hence proved.

Question 4.

In figure, side AB and AC are produced (RBSESolutions.com) to point D and E respectively. Bisectors BO and CO of ∠DBC and ∠ECB respectively meet at O. If AB > AC. Prove that OC > OB.

Solution.

Given: ABC is a triangle in which AB and AC is produced up to D and E respectively and bisectors of ∠DBC and ∠ECB meet at O. Also AB > AC.

To prove: OC > OB

Proof: In ΔABC

AB > AC

⇒ ∠ACB > ∠ABC …(i)

Also BO and CO are the bisectors of ∠DBC and ∠BCE respectively.

∠OBD = ∠OBC

and ∠OCB = ∠OCE

∠ACB = 180° – ∠BCE

⇒ ∠ACB = 180° – 2∠OCB …(ii)

Similarly ∠ABC = 180° – 2 ∠OBC…(iii)

From (i), (ii) and (iii), we have

180° – 2∠OCB > 180° – 2∠OBC

⇒ – 2∠OCB > – 2∠OBC

⇒ ∠OBC > ∠OCB

⇒ OC > OB

Hence proved.

Question 5.

If figure, ABCD is a quadrilateral. Prove that AB + BC + CD + DA > AC + BD.

In ΔABC

AB + BC > AC …(i) (the sum of (RBSESolutions.com) any two sides of a Δ is greater than third side)

Also in ΔADC

AD + DC > AC …(ii) (reason as above)

Similarly in ΔABD and ΔBCD

AB + AD > BD …(iii)

BC + CD >BD …(iv)

Adding (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv), we get

2AB + 2BC + 2AD + 2CD > 2AC + 2BD

⇒ AB + BC + CD + DA > AC + BD

Hence proved.

To prove: ∠R > ∠P and ∠S > ∠Q

Construction: Join PR and QS.

Proof: In ΔPQR

PQ is longest side (given)

PQ > QR

⇒ ∠5 > ∠2 …(i) (∠ opposite to longer side is greater)

In ΔPSR

RS is the shortest side (given)

PS > RS

⇒ ∠6 > ∠1 …(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii), we get

∠5 + ∠6 > ∠1 + ∠2

⇒ ∠R > ∠P

Now in ΔPQS, PQ is the (RBSESolutions.com) longest side

PQ > PS

⇒ ∠8 > ∠3 …(iii)

In ΔSRQ, RS is the shortest side

RQ > RS …(iv)

⇒ ∠7 > ∠4

Adding (iii) and (iv), we get

∠7 + ∠8 > ∠3 + ∠4
