### Practice Set – 3.1

(1) In figure 3.8, ACD is an exterior angle of ABC.

B = 40°, A = 70°. Find the measure of ACD.

Solution:

Given, ∠A = 70°, ∠B =40°

We know, Exterior angle is equal to the sum of remote interior angles.

∴ ∠A + ∠B = ∠ACD

∠ACD = 70° + 40° = 130°

(2) In PQR, P = 70°, Q = 65° then find R.

Solution:

Sum of angles of a triangle is 180°

∠P + ∠Q + ∠R = 180°

= 70° + 65° + ∠R = 180°

= ∠R = 45°

(3) The measures of angles of a triangle are x°, (x-20)°, (x-40)°.

Find the measure of each angle.

Solution:

Sum of angles of a triangle is 180°

∴ x° + (x – 20)° + (x – 40)° = 180°

= 3x – 60° = 180°

= 3x = 120°

= x = 40°

∴ The angles are: 40°, 20°, 0°

(4) The measure of one of the angles of a triangle is twice the measure of its smallest angle and the measure of the other is thrice the measure of the smallest angle. Find the measures of the three angles.

Solution:

Let, the smallest angle be x°

A/Q, other angles are 2x° and 3x°

Sum of angles of a triangle is 180°

∴ x° + 2x° + 3x° = 180°

= 6x° = 180°

= x = 30°

∴ The angles are: 30°, 60°, 90°

(5) In figure 3.9, measures of some angles are given. Using the measures find the values of x, y, z.

Solution:

Given, ∠TMR = 140°

∵ NR is a straight ray

∴ ∠NME + ∠EMR = 180°

= ∠NME = 180° – 140° = 40°

= 3 = 40°

Also, TM is a straight ray

∴ ∠TEN + ∠NEM = 180°

= ∠NEM = 180° – 100° = 80°

= y = 80°

Sum of angles of a triangle is 180°

∴ x + y + 3 = 180°

= x = 180° – 80° – 40°

= 60°

(6) In figure 3.10, line AB || line DE. Find the measures of DRE and ARE using given measures of some angles.

Solution:-

∵ AB || DE and AD transversal

Sum of angles of △DRE is 180°

∴ ∠D + ∠E + ∠DRE = 180°

= 70° + 40° + ∠DRE = 180°

= ∠DRE = 70°

∵ ARD is straight line

∴ ∠ARE + ∠ERD = 180°

=> ∠ARE = 180° – 70° = 110°

(7) In ABC, bisectors of A and B intersect at point O. If C = 70°. Find measure of AOB.

Solution: In △ABC,

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°

= 2 ∠OAB + 2 ∠OBA + 70° = 180° (∵ AO and BO are angle bisectors)

= ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180°-70°/2

= 55°

In △AOB,

∠AOB + ∠OAB + ∠BOA = 180°

= ∠AOB + 55° = 180°

= ∠AOB = 125°

(8) In Figure 3.11, line AB || line CD and line PQ is the transversal. Ray PT and ray QT are bisectors of BPQ and PQD respectively.

Prove that PTQ = 90°.

Solution:

∵ AB || CD and PQ transversal

∴ ∠BPQ + ∠PQD = 180° (Angles on same side of transversal)

= 2 ∠TPQ + 2∠PQT = 180° (∴ PT and QT are angle bisectors)

= ∠TPQ + ∠PQT = 90°

Sum of angles of △PTQ is 180°

∴ ∠PTQ + ∠TPQ + ∠PQT = 180°

= ∠PTQ + 90° = 180°

= ∠PTQ = 90°

(9) Using the information in figure 3.12, find the measures of a, b and c.

Solution:

In figure, ∠DBF = ∠ABC (Vertically opposite angles)

B = 70°

∵ BCE is a straight line

∴ ∠c + 100° = 180°

=> C = 80°

In △ABC, a + b + c = 180°

=> a + 70° + 80° = 180°

=> a = 30°

(10) In figure 3.13, line DE || line GF ray EG and ray FG are bisectors of DEF and DFM respectively.

Prove that,

(i) DEG = ½ EDF (ii) EF = FG.

Solution:

∵ ED || FG and DF transversal

∴ ∠EDF = ∠DFG (Alternate angles) —– (1)

(i) Again, Exterior angle is equal to sum of remote interior angles of a triangle.

∴ ∠DEF + ∠EDF = ∠DFM

= ½ DEF + 1/2 ∠EDF = ½ ∠DFM

= ∠DEG + ½ ∠EDF = ∠DFG (∵ EG & FG are angle bisectors)

= ∠DEG = ∠DFG – 1/2 ∠DFG (By (i))

= ½ ∠DFG = 1/2 ∠EDF (By (i))

(ii) Also, ED || FG and EG transversal

∴ ∠DEG = ∠EGF (Alternate angles)

∵ EG is angle bisector

∴ ∠DEG = ∠GEF

∴ ∠EGF = ∠GEF

∴ △GEF is an isosceles triangle

∴ EF = GF

### Practice Set 3.2

Seg PT seg ST

PTQ STR —– vertically opposite angles seg TQ seg TR

PTQ STR —– test

TPQ —– and —- TRS (Corresponding ….. angles of congruent triangles)

Seg PQ —- (corresponding sides of congruent triangles)

Solution:

△PQT ≅ △SRT (S-A-S test)

{∵ PT = TS, QT = TR and ∠PTQ = ∠STR (Vertically opposite angles}

∠PQT = ∠SRT (Corresponding angles of congruent triangle)

∠TPQ = ∠TSR

Seg PQ = Seg SR (Corresponding sides of congruent triangle)

(3) From the information shown in the figure, state the test assuring the congruence of ABC and PQR. Write the remaining congruent parts of the triangles.

Solution:

In △ABC and △PQR,

BC = PR and AB = PQ

∠BAC = ∠RQP

∴ △ABC ≅ △PQR [S-A-S test]

AC = QR

∠ABC = ∠QPR and ∠ACB = ∠QRP (Corresponding angles & sides of congruent △S)

(4) As shown in the following figure, in LMN and PNM, LM = PN, LN = PM. Write the test which assures the congruence of the two triangles. Write their remaining congruent parts.

Solution:

In △LMN and △PNM,

LM = PN, LN = PM (Given)

MN = NM (common)

∴ △LMN ≅ △PNM (S-S-S test)

∠LMN = ∠PNM

∠MLN = ∠NPM

∠LNM = ∠PMN (Corresponding angles of congruent triangle)

(5) In figure 3.24, seg AB seg CB and seg AD seg CD.

Prove that

ABD CBD

Solution:

In △ABD and △CBD,

AD = CD, AB = CB (given)

BD = BD (Common)

∴ △ABD ≅ △CBD [S-S-S test]

(6) In figure 3.25, P R

seg PQ seg RQ

Prove that,

PQT RQS

Solution:

In △PQT and △RQS

∠P = ∠R, PQ = RQ (Given)

∠Q is common

∴ △PQT ≅ △RQS (A-S-A test)

### Practice Set 3.3

(1) Find the values of x and y using the information shown in figure 3.37.

Find the measure of ABD and m ACD.

Solution:

In △ABC, AB = AC (Given)

∴ ∠ABC = ∠ACB (Angles opposite to equal sides are equal)

∴ x = 50°

In △BCD, BD = CD (given)

∴ ∠DBC = ∠DCB (Angles opposite to equal sides are equal)

= y = 60°

∴ m ∠ABD = ∠ABC + ∠DBC

= x + 60°

= 50 + 60° = 110°

m ∠ACD = ∠ACB + ∠DCB

= y + 50° = 60° + 50° = 110°

(2) The length of hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is 15. Find the length of median of its hypotenuse.

Solution:-

We know length of median on hypotenuse is half the length of the hypotenuse.

∵ Hypotenuse = 15

Median = 15/2 = 7.5

(3) In PQR, Q = 90°, PQ = 12, QR = 5 and QS is a median. Find l(QS). Solution:

∵ PQR is a right angled triangle and PR is a hypotenuse and QS is median on the hypotenuse.

∴ l(QS) = ½ × hypotenuse

= ½ × 12 = 6

(4) In figure 3.38, point G is the point of concurrence of the medians of PQR. If GT = 2.5, find the lengths of PG and PT.

Solution:

∵ PT is median of △PQR and G is a point of concurrence of the medians.

∴ PG : GT = 2:1

∴ PG = 2×2.5

= 5

∴ PT = PG + GT

= 5+2.5

= 7.5

### Practice Set 3.4

(1) In figure 3.48, point A is on the bisector of XYZ. If AX = 2 cm then find AZ.

Solution:

∵ A is a point on the bisector of ∠XYZ

∴ Lines draw from A on both sides of the bisector are equal.

∴ AX = AZ

∴ AZ = 2cm

(2) In figure 3.49, RST = 56°, seg PT ray ST, seg PR ray SR and seg PR seg PT Find the measure of RSP.

Solution:

∵ Seg PR ≅ Seg PT

∴ SP is an angle bisector of ∠TSR

∴ ∠RSP = 1/2 ∠RST = ½ × 56° = 28°

(Lines drawn from P are equal then the lines is an angle bisector)

(3) In PQR, PQ = 10 cm, QR = 12 cm, PR = 8 cm. Find out the greatest and the smallest angle of the triangle. Solution:

Angle opposite to longer side is greatest and opposite to smaller side is smallest.

∴ ∠P is the greatest angle and ∠Q is the smallest angle.

(4) In FAN, F = 80°, A = 40°. Find out the greatest and the smallest side of the triangle. State the reason.

Solution:

∵ ∠F = 80°, ∠A = 40°

∴ ∠N = 180° – ∠F – ∠A

= 60°

Sides opposite to greatest angle is greatest and opposite to smallest angle is greatest.

∴ AN is the greatest side and FN is the smallest side.

(5) Prove that an equilateral triangle is equiangular.

Solution: In △ABC,

AB = AC

∴ ∠C = ∠B (Angles opposite to equal sides)

AC = BC

∠B = ∠A (Angles opposite to equal sides)

AB = BC

∠C = ∠A (Angles opposite to equal sides)

∴ ∠A = ∠B = ∠C

(6) Prove that, if the bisector of BAC of ABC is perpendicular to side BC, then ABC is an isosceles triangle. Solution:

Let, AD be the angle bisector of ∠A of △ABC.

In △ABD and △ABD,

∴ △ABD ≅ △ACD (A-S-A test)

∴ AB = AC and ∠ABD = ∠ACD (Corresponding sides & angles of congruent triangles)

∴ ABC is an isosceles triangle.

(7) In figure 3.50, if seg PR seg PQ, show that seg PS > seg PQ.

Solution:

In △PRS, ∠PRS is an obtuse angle

Hence, ∠PRS is the greatest angle

Side opposite to ∠PRS is PS. which is the greatest side

∴ Seg PS > seg PR = seg PQ

∴ Seg PS > seg PQ

(8) In figure 3.51, in ABC, seg AD and seg BE are altitudes and AE = BD.

Prove that seg AD seg BE

Solution:

In △ABD and △ABE,

AE = BD and ∠AEB = ∠ADB = 90°, AB is common

∴ △ABD ≅ △ABE (S-A-S test)

∴ Seg AD ≅ Seg BE (Corresponding side of congruent triangle)

### Practice Set 3.5

(1) If XYZ ~ LMN, write the corresponding angles of the two triangles and also write the ratios of corresponding sides.

Solution:

Corresponding angle are:

∠X = ∠L, ∠Y = ∠M, ∠Z = ∠N

Rations of corresponding sides are:

XY/LM = YZ/MN = XZ/LN

(2) In XYZ, XY = 4 cm, YZ = 6 cm, XZ = 5 cm, If XYZ ~ PQR and PQ = 8 cm then find the lengths of remaining sides of PQR.

Solution:

△XYZ ~ △PQR

∴ XY/PQ = YZ/QR = XZ/PR

= 4/8 = 6/QR = 5/PR

∴ QR = 6 × 8/4 = 12

PR = 5 × 8/4 = 10

(3) Draw a sketch of a pair of similar triangles. Label them. Show their corresponding angles by the same signs. Show the lengths of corresponding sides by numbers in proportion.

Solution: ### Problem Set 3

(1) Choose the correct alternative answer for the following questions.

(i) If two sides of a triangle are 5 cm and 1.5 cm, the length of its third side cannot be –

(A) 3.7 cm

(B) 4.1 cm

(C) 3.8 cm

(D) 3.4 cm

Ans: (D) 3.4 cm.

(ii) In PQR, If R > Q then . . . . .

(A) QR > PR

(B) PQ > PR

(C) PQ < PR

(D) QR < PR

Ans: (B) PQ > PR.

(iii) In TPQ, T = 65°, P = 95° which of the following is a true statement ?

(A) PQ < TP

(B) PQ < TQ

(C) TQ < TP < PQ

(D) PQ < TP < TQ

Ans: (B) PQ < TQ.

(2) ABC is isosceles in which AB = AC. Seg BD and seg CE are medians. Show that BD = CE.

Solution:

In △ABC, BD and CE are medians

∴ AE = BE = ½ AB and AD = DC = ½ AC

Now, In △BEC and △BDC,

AB = AC

= ½ AB = ½ AC

= BE = CD

∠B = ∠C (Equal angles of isosceles triangles)

BC is common

∴ △BEC ≅ △BDC (S-A-S test)

∴ BD = CE (Corresponding sides of congruent triangles)

(3) In PQR, If PQ > PR and bisectors of Q and R intersect at S. Show that SQ > SR.

Solution:

In △PQR,

PQ > PR

∴ ∠R > ∠Q (Angles opposite to the sides follow the inequality)

∴ ½ ∠R > ½ ∠Q

∠SRQ > ∠SQR (∵ SQ & SR are bisectors of ∠Q & ∠R)

∴ SQ > SR

(4) In figure 3.59, point D and E are on side BC of ABC, such that BD = CE and AD = AE. Show that ABD ACE.

Solution:

Now, ∠AED + ∠AEC = 180°

∴ ∠AEC – ∠ADB = 0

BD = EC

∴ △ABD ≅ △ACE (S-A-S test)

(5) In figure 3.60, point S is any point on side QR of PQR.

Prove that: PQ + QR + RP > 2PS

Solution:

In △PQS

PQ + QS > PS (Sum of two sides of triangle is greater than third side)

Similarly,

In △PSR,

PR + SR > PS

∴ Adding we get, PQ + QS + PR + SR > PS + PS

= PQ + QR + PR > 2 PS

(6) In figure 3.61, bisector of BAC intersects side BC at point D.

Prove that AB > BD

Solution:

In △DAC, ∠DAC < ∠ADB (Exterior angle of △DAC)

= AB > BD (Sides opposite to the greater and smaller angles are greater and smaller)

(7) In figure 3.62, seg PT is the bisector of QPR. A line parallel to seg PT and passing through R intersects ray QP at point S. Prove that PS = PR.

Solution:

∵ PT || SR, and QS transversal,

∠QPT = ∠PSR (corresponding angles)

∵ PT || SR and PR transversal

∠TPR = ∠PRS (Alternate angles)

∵ PT is bisector of ∠QPR

∴ ∠QPT = ∠TPR

= ∠PSR = ∠PRS

∴ PS = PR (sides opposite to the angles are also equal)

(8) In figure 3.63, seg AD seg BC.

seg AE is the bisector of CAB and

C – E – D. Prove that

DAE = ½ (C – B)

Solution:

∵ AE is bisector of ∠CAB

∴ ∠CAE = ∠BAE —- (i)

∠B + ∠ADB + ∠DAB = 180°

= ∠B = 90° – ∠DAB

In ACD,

= ∠C = 90° – ∠CAD

∴ ∠C – ∠B = ∠DAB – ∠CAD

= (∠DAE + ∠BAE) – (∠CAE – ∠DAE)

= 2 ∠DAE + ∠BAE – ∠BAE (By (i))

= 2 ∠DAE

= ∠DAE = ½ (∠C – ∠B)
