###### Practice Set 1.3
Question 1.

In figure 1.55, ∠ABC = 75°, ∠EDC = 75° state which two triangles are similar and by which test? Also write the similarity of these two triangles by a proper one to one correspondence.

With one- to-one correspondence ABC ↔ EDC

∵ ∠ABC ≅ ∠EDC = 75°

∠ACB ≅ ∠ECD (Is common in both the triangles ABC and EDC)

⇒ Î” ABC~Î” EDC ………(By AA Test)

Question 2.

Are the triangles in figure 1.56 similar? If yes, by which test?

In Î” PQR and Î” LMN

And

And

⇒

⇒ Î”PQR~Î”LMN …………(By SSS Similarity Test)

Question 3.

As shown in figure 1.57, two poles of height 8 m and 4 m are perpendicular to the ground. If the length of shadow of smaller pole due to sunlight is 6 m then how long will be the shadow of the bigger pole at the same time?

∵ the shadows are measured at the same time

⇒ angle of of elevation will be equal for both the pole

⇒ Î” PQR~Î” ABC ………(By AA Test)

⇒

⇒ BC

⇒ x =

⇒ x = 12 m

Question 4.

In Î”ABC, AP ⊥ BC, BQ ⊥ AC B- P-C, A-Q - C then prove that, Î”CPA ~ Î”CQB. If AP = 7, BQ = 8, BC = 12 then find AC.

From fig.

⇒ ∠ APC≅ ∠ BQC (∵ AP⊥ BC and BQ⊥ AC)

⇒ Also, ∠ ACP≅ ∠ BCQ (Common)

⇒ Î” CPA~Î” CQB (By AA Test)

⇒

⇒ AC =

⇒AC =

⇒AC = 10.5

Question 5.

Given : In trapezium PQRS, side PQ || side SR, AR = 5AP, AS = 5AQ then prove that, SR = 5PQ

Given that, AR = 5AP and AS = 5AQ

⇒  = 5 ………(1)

And  = 5……….(2)

⇒

And, ∠ SAR≅ ∠ QAP …… (opposite angles)

⇒ Î” SAR ~ Î” QAP …………(SAS Test of similarity)

⇒  (corresponding sides are proportional)

But,  = 5

⇒  = 5

⇒ SR = 5PQ

Question 6.

In trapezium ABCD, (Figure 1.60) side AB || side DC, diagonals AC and BD intersect in point O. If AB = 20, DC = 6, OB = 15 then find OD.

In Î” AOB and Î”COD

⇒ ∠ AOB≅ ∠ COD (opposite angles)

⇒ ∠ CDO≅ ∠ ABO (Alternate angles ∵ AB||DC)

⇒ Î” AOB ~ Î” COD (By AA Test)

⇒  (corresponding sides are proportional)

⇒ OD =

⇒ OD =

⇒ OD = 4.5

Question 7.

□ ABCD is a parallelogram point E is on side BC. Line DE intersects ray AB in point T. Prove that DE × BE = CE × TE.

In Î” CED and Î”BET

⇒ ∠ CED≅ ∠ BET (opposite angles)

⇒ ∠ CDE≅ ∠ BTE (Alternate angles)

(∵ AB||DC ⇒ BT||DC, as BT is extension to AB)

⇒ Î” CED ~ Î” BET (By AA Test)

⇒  (corresponding sides are proportional)

⇒ DE× BE = CE×TE

Question 8.

In the figure, seg AC and seg BD intersect each other in point P and  Prove that, Î”ABP ~ Î”CDP

In Î” APB & Î” CPD

⇒  ……(Given)

And, ∠APB = ∠DPC (vertically opposite angles)

⇒ Î” APB ~ Î” CPD (By SAS Test)

Question 9.

In the figure, in Î”ABC, point D on side BC is such that, ∠BAC = ∠ADC.

Prove that, CA2 = CB × CD

In Î” BAC & Î” ADC

⇒ ∠ BAC ≅ ∠ ADC ……(Given)

And, ∠ACB ≅ ∠DCA ……(common)

⇒ Î” BAC ~ Î” ADC (By AA Test)

⇒  (corresponding sides are proportional)

⇒ CA2 = CB×CD
