Question 22.

A square is inscribed in an isosceles right triangle so that the square and the triangle have one angle common. Show that the vertex of the square opposite to the vertex of the common angle bisects the hypotenuse.

Solution.

Given: ∆ABC in which ∠A = 90° and AB = AC

Let ADEF be a square

⇒ AD = AF …(i)

and AB = AC …(ii)

Subtracting equation (i) from (ii), we get

AB – AD = AC – AF

⇒ BD = CF …(iii)

Now in ∆CFE and ∆EDB

∠CFE = ∠EDB = 90°

BD = CF (proved earlier)

DE = EF (sides of a square)

∆CFE = ∆EDB (by SAS congruency rule)

⇒ CE = BE (by c.p.c.t)

Hence, vertex E of the square (RBSESolutions.com) bisects the hypotenuse BC.

Question 23.

In a parallelogram ABCD, AB = 10 cm and AD = 6 cm. The bisector of ∠A meets DC in E. AE and BC are produced to meet at F. Find the length of CF.

Solution.

In ∆ADE and ∆CEF

∠1 = ∠3 …(i) (alternate interior angles)

as AD || BC (produced)

∠1 = ∠2 …(ii) (AF is the bisector of ∠A)

From (i) and (ii), we get

∠2 = ∠3

⇒ AB = BF (side opposite to equal angles are equal)

⇒ AB = BC + CF

⇒ 10 = 6 + CF

⇒ CF = 4 cm

Question 24.

P, Q, R and S are respectively, the mid-points of (RBSESolutions.com) the sides AB, BC, CD and DA of a quadrilateral ABCD in which AC = BD and AC ⊥ BD. Prove

that PQRS is a square.

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a quadrilateral and P, Q, R and S are the mid-points of the side AB, BC, CD and DA respectively, such that AC = BD and AC ⊥ BD

To prove: PQRS is a square.

Proof: Now, in ∆ADC, by mid-point theorem

SR || AC and SR = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(i)

In ∆ABC, by mid-point theorem

PQ || AC and PQ = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(ii)

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

PQ || SR and PQ = SR …(iii)

Now, in ∆ABD, by mid-point theorem

SP || BD and SP = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) BD = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(iv)

[∵ AC = BD (given)]

And, in ∆BCD, by mid-point theorem

RQ || BD and RQ = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) BD = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(v)

From equations (iv) and (v), we get

SP || RQ and SP = RQ = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(vi)

Now, from equations (iii) and (vi), we get

PQ = SR = SP = RQ

Thus, all four sides (RBSESolutions.com) are equal.

Now, in quadrilateral OERF

OE || FR and OF || ER

So, OERF is a parallelogram.

∆EOF = ∆ERF = 90° (opposite angles of a parallelogram)

and ∠QRS = 90°

Hence, PQRS is a square.

Hence proved.

Question 25.

A diagonal of a parallelogram bisects one (RBSESolutions.com) of its angle. Show that it is a rhombus.

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a parallelogram and diagonal AC bisects ∠A.

To prove: Diagonal AC bisects ∠A

∠1 = ∠2

Now, AB || CD and AC is a transversal.

∠2 = ∠3 (alternate interior angle)

Again AD || BC and AC is a transversal.

∠1 = ∠4 (alternate interior angles)

Now, ∠A = ∠C (opposite angles of a parallelogram)

⇒ \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) ∠A = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) ∠C

⇒ ∠1 = ∠3

⇒ AD = CD (side opposite to equal angles)

AB = CD and AD = BC

AB = BC = CD = AD

⇒ ABCD is a rhombus.

Question 26.

ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AB || DC and AD = BC (see figure). Show that:

(i) ∠A = ∠B and

(ii) ∠C = ∠D

[Hint: Extend AB and draw (RBSESolutions.com) a line through C parallel to DA intersecting AB produced at E]

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || CD and AD = BC.

To prove:

(i) ∠A = ∠B

(ii) ∠C = ∠D

Construction:

Join AC and BD. Extend line AB and draw (RBSESolutions.com) a line through C parallel to DA which meets AB produced at E.

Proof:

(i) AB || DC

⇒ AE || DC …(i)

and AD || CE …(ii) (by construction)

⇒ ADCE is a parallelogram

⇒ ∠A + ∠E = 180° …(iii) (sum of consecutive interior angles)

⇒ ∠ABC + ∠CBE = 180° …(iv) (linear pair of angles)

AD = CE …(v) (opposite sides of a parallelogram)

and AD = BC (given) …(vi)

⇒ BC = CE from (v) and (vi)

⇒ ∠CBE = ∠CEB …(vii) (angles opposite to equal sides)

⇒ ∠B + ∠E = 180° …(viii) [using (iv) and (vii)]

Now from (iii) and (viii), we have

∠A + ∠E = ∠B + ∠E

⇒ ∠A = ∠B

(ii) ∠A + ∠D = 180°

and ∠B + ∠C = 180°

⇒ ∠A + ∠D = ∠B + ∠C (∵ ∠A = ∠B)

⇒ ∠C = ∠D

Question 27.

In ∆ABC, AD is the median through A and E is the mid-point of AD. BE is produced (RBSESolutions.com) to meet AC in F. Prove that AF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) AC.

Solution.

Given: ABC is a triangle in which AD is the median through A and E is the mid-point of AD.

To prove: AF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) AC

Construction: Through D, draw DK || BF

Proof: In ΔADK,

E is the mid-point of AD and EF || DK.

F is the mid-point of AK. (by converse of mid-point theorem)

⇒ AF = FK …(i)

In ΔBCF,

D is the mid-point of BC and DK || BF.

K is the mid-point of FC.

FK = KC …(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we get

AF = FK = KC …(iii)

Now, AC = AF + FK + KC

⇒ AC = AF + AF + AF [(using (iii)]

⇒ AC = 3AF

⇒ AF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC.

Question 28.

Show that the line segment joining the mid-points (RBSESolutions.com) of the consecutive sides of a square is also of a square.

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a square in which E, F, G and H are respectively the mid-points of sides AB, BC, CD and DA.

To prove: EFGH is a square.

Construction: Join A to C and B to D.

Proof: In ΔABC

E and F are mid-points of sides AB and BC.

From mid-point theorem

EF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(i)

Similarly, HG = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC …(ii)

From (i) and (ii) EF = HG

Similarly, by joining B to D

We can say HE = GF

Since ABCD is a square

AB = BC = CD = DA

Again by using mid-point theorem

⇒ \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AB = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) DA

⇒ AE = AH

⇒ ∠AHE = ∠AEH = 45°

Similarly, ∠DHG = ∠DGH = 45°

∠AHE + ∠GHE + ∠DHG = 180°

⇒ 45° + ∠GHE + 45° = 180°

⇒ ∠GHE = 90°

⇒ EFGH is a square.

Question 29.

Show that the bisectors of the angles (RBSESolutions.com) of a parallelogram form a rectangle.

Solution.

Let ABCD be a parallelogram and P, Q, R and S be the points of intersection of the bisectors of ∠A and ∠D, ∠A and ∠B, ∠B and ∠C, ∠D and ∠C respectively of parallelogram ABCD.

AP bisects ∠A and DP bisects ∠D. Therefore

∠DAP + ∠ADP = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) ∠A + \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) ∠D

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) (∠A + ∠D)

⇒ ∠DAP + ∠ADP = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x 180° = 90° (sum of consecutive ∠s of a parallelogram)

∠DAP + ∠ADP = 90° ….(i)

Also in ∆ADP,

∠DAP + ∠ADP + ∠APD = 180° (angle sum property of a triangle)

⇒ 90° + ∠APD = 180°

⇒ ∠APD = 90° [using (ii)]

But ∠QPS = ∠APD (vertically opposite angles)

⇒ ∠QPS = 90° ..(ii)

Similarly, BR bisects ∠B and CR bisects,

∠C, therefore

∠QRS = 90° …(iii)

Also, AQ bisects ∠A and BQ bisects ∠B and DS bisects ∠D and CS bisects ∠C, therefore

∠PQR = 90° …(iv)

and ∠PSR = 90° ..(v)

So, using (ii), (iii), (iv) and (v), we can say that PQRS is (RBSESolutions.com) a quadrilateral in which all angles i.e. ∠P, ∠Q, ∠R and ∠S are right angles.

Hence, PQRS is a rectangle.

Question 30.

P and Q are points on opposite sides AD and BC of a parallelogram ABCD, such that PQ passes through the point of intersection O of its diagonals AC and BD. Show that PQ is bisected at O.

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a parallelogram, whose diagonals bisect each other at O, i.e. OB = OD and OC = OA.

Proof: In ∆OBQ and ∆ODP

∠BOQ = ∠POD (vertically opposite angles)

∠OBQ = ∠ODP …(i) (since AD || BC and BD is transversal)

and OB = OD (given)

∆ODP = ∆OBQ (by ASA congruence rule)

Then, OP = OQ (by c.p.c.t)

Hence, O bisects PQ

Hence proved.

Question 31.

ABCD is a rectangle (RBSESolutions.com) whose diagonal BD bisects the ∠B. Show that ABCD is a square.

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a rectangle in which diagonal BD bisects ∠B

i.e. ∠1 = ∠2

To prove: ABCD is a square.

Proof: In ∆ADB and ∆BDC

AB = DC (opposite sides of a rectangle)

∠1 = ∠3 (alternate angles)

and BD = BD (common)

∆ABD = ∆CDB (by SAS congruency rule)

But ∠1 = ∠2 (given)

⇒ ∠3 = ∠2

⇒ BC = DC (sides opposite to equal angles)

⇒ ABCD is a square.

Question 32.

D, E and F are respectively the mid-points (RBSESolutions.com) of the sides AB, BC and CA of a ∆ABC. Prove that by joining these mid-points D, E and F, the ∆ABC is divided into four congruent triangles.

Solution.

Given: ABC is a triangle and D, E and F are mid-points of sides AB, BC and CA, respectively.

To prove: ∆ABC is divided into four congruent triangles.

Construction: Join DE, EF and FD.

Proof: Given D, E and F are the mid-points (RBSESolutions.com) of sides AB, BC and CA respectively, then

AD = BD = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AB

BE = EC = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) BC

and AF = CF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC

Now, by mid-point theorem,

EF || AB

and EF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AB = AD = BD

ED || AC

and ED = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AC = AF = CF

DF || BC

and DF = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) BC = BE = EC.

Now in ∆ADF and ∆EFD,

AD = EF (opposite sides of a parallelogram)

DF = FD (common sides)

and DE = AF

∆ADF = ∆EFD (by SSS congruence rule)

Similarly, ∆DEF = ∆DEB and ∆DEF = ∆CEF

Thus, ∆ABC is divided into four congruent triangles.

Hence proved.

Question 33.

In the given figure, ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || CD. M and N are mid-points (RBSESolutions.com) of the diagonal AC and BD respectively. Prove that MN || CD

and MN = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) (CD – AB)

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || CD and M and N are mid-points of diagonal AC and BD respectively.

Construction: Join AN and produce it to meet CD at E.

To prove: MN = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) (CD – AB)

and MN || CD

Proof: In ∆ANB and ∆END

∠ANB = ∠END (vertically opposite angles)

NB = ND (N is the mid-points of BD)

and ∠ABN = ∠EDN (alternate angles)

(∵ AB || CD and BD is a transversal)

∆ANB = ∆END (by ASA congruency rule)

⇒ AN = NE and AB = ED …(i) (by c.p.c.t)

Now in ∆EAC,

N and M are the mid-points of AE and AC respectively.

MN || EC and MN = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) EC (by mid-point theorem)

⇒ MN || EC

and MN = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) (CD – ED) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) (CD – AB) [using (i)]

Hence, MN || CD (∵ MN || EC)

and MN = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) (CD – AB).

Question 34.

P is the mid-point of the side CD of (RBSESolutions.com) a parallelogram ABCD. A line through C parallel to PA intersects AB at Q and DA produced at R. Prove that DA = AR and CQ = QR.

Solution.

Given: ABCD is a parallelogram (RBSESolutions.com) in which P is the mid-point of side CD.

To prove: DA = AR and CQ = QR

Proof: ABCD is a parallelogram.

BC = AD and BC || AD

Also, DC = AB and DC || AB

Since, P is mid-point of DC

DP = PC = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) DC

Now, QC || AP and PC || AQ.

Hence, APCQ is a parallelogram.

AQ = PC = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) DC = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) AB

= BQ [∵ DC = AB]

Now in ∆AQR and ∆BQC

AQ = BQ

∠AQR = ∠BQC (vertically opposite angles)

and ∠ARQ = ∠BCQ (alternate interior angles)

∆AQR = ∆BQC (by AAS congruence rule)

So, AR = BC (by c.p.c.t)

But, BC = DA

AR = DA

Also, CQ = QR (by c.p.c.t)

Hence proved.
