**Question 1.**In the figure, if AB = CD and ∠AOB = 90° find ∠COD

**Answer:**We know “Angles subtended by equal chords at the center of acircle are equal”.

∠COD = ∠AOB = 90^{0}

**Question 2.**In the figure, PQ = RS and ∠ORS = 48°. Find ∠OPQ and ∠ROS.

**Answer:**In ORS,

∠ORS = ∠OSR (radius of circle)

∠OSR = ∠ORS = 48^{0}

∠OSR + ∠ORS + ∠ROS = 180

⇒ 48 + 48 + ∠ROS = 180

⇒ 96 + ∠ROS = 180

⇒ ∠ROS = 180-96

⇒ ∠ROS = 180-96

⇒ ∠ROS = 84

We know “Angles subtended by equal chords at the center of a circle are equal”.

∠POQ = ∠ROS = 84^{0}

In POQ,

∠POQ + ∠OPQ + ∠OQP = 180

84^{0} + x + x = 180

84^{0} + 2x = 180

2x = 180-84

2x = 96

x =

x = 48

∠OPQ = 48

**Question 3.**In the figure PR and QS are two diameters. Is PQ = RS?

**Answer:**Considering a circle, where PR and QS being a diameter.

Let center of circle be O.

In triangles POQ and SOR

PO = OR (Radius of circle)

OS = OQ (Radius of circle)

Angle POQ = Angle SOR (Vertically opposite angles are always

equal)

Hence triangle POQ is congruent to triangle SOR (By Side Angle Side

Axiom)

PQ = RS (By C.P.C.T.C)

Hence, proved.

**Question 1.**

In the figure, if AB = CD and ∠AOB = 90° find ∠COD

**Answer:**

We know “Angles subtended by equal chords at the center of acircle are equal”.

∠COD = ∠AOB = 90^{0}

**Question 2.**

In the figure, PQ = RS and ∠ORS = 48°. Find ∠OPQ and ∠ROS.

**Answer:**

In ORS,

∠ORS = ∠OSR (radius of circle)

∠OSR = ∠ORS = 48^{0}

∠OSR + ∠ORS + ∠ROS = 180

⇒ 48 + 48 + ∠ROS = 180

⇒ 96 + ∠ROS = 180

⇒ ∠ROS = 180-96

⇒ ∠ROS = 180-96

⇒ ∠ROS = 84

We know “Angles subtended by equal chords at the center of a circle are equal”.

∠POQ = ∠ROS = 84^{0}

In POQ,

∠POQ + ∠OPQ + ∠OQP = 180

84^{0} + x + x = 180

84^{0} + 2x = 180

2x = 180-84

**Question 2.**Draw two circles passing through A, B where AB = 5.4cm

**Answer:**

**Question 3.**If two circles intersect at two points, then prove that their centres lie on the perpendicular bisector of the common chord.

**Answer:**

Let two circles O and O' intersect at two points A and B so that AB is the common chord of two circles.

OO' is the line segment joining the centers.

Let OO' intersect AB at M

Now Draw line segments OA, OB , O'A and O'B

In Î”OAO' and OBO' , we have

OA = OB (radii of same circle)

O'A = O'B (radii of same circle)

O'O = OO' (common side)

⇒ Î”OAO' ≅ Î”OBO' (SSS congruency)

⇒ ∠AOO' = ∠BOO'

⇒ ∠AOM = ∠BOM ......(i)

Now in Î”AOM and Î”BOM we have

OA = OB (radii of same circle)

∠AOM = ∠BOM (from (i))

OM = OM (common side)

⇒ Î”AOM ≅ Î”BOM (SAS congruency)

⇒ AM = BM and ∠AMO = ∠BMO

But

∠AMO + ∠BMO = 180°

⇒ 2∠AMO = 180°

⇒ ∠AMO = 90°

Thus, AM = BM and ∠AMO = ∠BMO = 90°

Hence OO' is the perpendicular bisector of AB.

**Question 4.**If two intersecting chords of a circle make equal angles with diameter passing through their point of intersection, prove that the chords are equal.

**Answer:**Given that AB and CD are two chords of a circle, with center O intersecting at a point E.

PQ is a diameter passing through E, such that ∠ AEQ = ∠ DEQ

Draw OL ⊥ AB and OM ⊥ CD.

In right angled OLE

∠LOE + 90° + ∠ LEO = 180° (Angle sum property of a triangle)

∴∠LOE = 90° – ∠LEO

= 90° – ∠AEQ = 90° – ∠DEQ

= 90° – ∠MEO = ∠MOE

In triangles OLE and OME,

∠LEO = ∠MEO

∠LOE = ∠MOE (Proved)

OE = OE (Common side)

∴ Î”OLE ≅ Î”OME

⇒ OL = OM (CPCT)

Thus, AB = CD

**Question 3.**

If two circles intersect at two points, then prove that their centres lie on the perpendicular bisector of the common chord.

**Answer:**

Let two circles O and O' intersect at two points A and B so that AB is the common chord of two circles.

OO' is the line segment joining the centers.

Let OO' intersect AB at M

Now Draw line segments OA, OB , O'A and O'B

In Î”OAO' and OBO' , we have

OA = OB (radii of same circle)

O'A = O'B (radii of same circle)

O'O = OO' (common side)

⇒ Î”OAO' ≅ Î”OBO' (SSS congruency)

⇒ ∠AOO' = ∠BOO'

⇒ ∠AOM = ∠BOM ......(i)

Now in Î”AOM and Î”BOM we have

OA = OB (radii of same circle)

∠AOM = ∠BOM (from (i))

OM = OM (common side)

⇒ Î”AOM ≅ Î”BOM (SAS congruency)

⇒ AM = BM and ∠AMO = ∠BMO

But

∠AMO + ∠BMO = 180°

⇒ 2∠AMO = 180°

⇒ ∠AMO = 90°

Thus, AM = BM and ∠AMO = ∠BMO = 90°

Hence OO' is the perpendicular bisector of AB.

If two intersecting chords of a circle make equal angles with diameter passing through their point of intersection, prove that the chords are equal.

**Answer:**

Given that AB and CD are two chords of a circle, with center O intersecting at a point E.

PQ is a diameter passing through E, such that ∠ AEQ = ∠ DEQ

Draw OL ⊥ AB and OM ⊥ CD.

In right angled OLE

∠LOE + 90° + ∠ LEO = 180° (Angle sum property of a triangle)

∴∠LOE = 90° – ∠LEO

= 90° – ∠AEQ = 90° – ∠DEQ

= 90° – ∠MEO = ∠MOE

In triangles OLE and OME,

∠LEO = ∠MEO

∠LOE = ∠MOE (Proved)

OE = OE (Common side)

∴ Î”OLE ≅ Î”OME

⇒ OL = OM (CPCT)

Thus, AB = CD

i.

ii.

iii.

**Answer:**(i) We know “Sum of all angles of a triangle is 180”.

x + y + 30 = 180

Since it is an isosceles triangle, x = y.

x + x + 30 = 180

⇒ 2x + 30 = 180

⇒ 2x = 180-30

⇒ 2x = 150

⇒ x =

⇒ x = 75

x = y = 75

(ii) We know that “Angles on the opposite sides in the cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary”.

x + 110 = 180

⇒ x = 180-110

⇒ x = 70

y + 85 = 180

⇒ y = 180-85

⇒ y = 95

(iii) Given, x = 90°

x + y + 50 = 180

⇒ 90 + y + 50 = 180

⇒ y + 140 = 180

**Answer:**In a quadrilateral, if the sum of opposite angles is 180°, then it is a

cyclic quadrilateral.

In quad. ABCD, A + C = 180°,

Therefore, ABCD is a cyclic quad.

In a cyclic quad., the vertices lie on the same circle. Thus, D also

lies on the same circle.

Hence, proved.

**Question 3.**Prove that a cyclic rhombus is a square.

**Answer:**To prove rhombus inscribed in a circle is a square, we need to prove that either any one of its interior angles is equal to 90° or its diagonals are equal.

∠ABD = ∠DBC = b

∠ADB = ∠BDC = a

In the figure, diagonal BD is angular bisector of angle B and angle D.

In triangle ABD and BCD,

AD = BC (sides of rhombus are equal)

AB = CD (sides of rhombus are equal)

BD = BD (common side)

△ABD ≅ △BCD. (SSS congruency)

In the figure,

2a + 2b = 180° (as, opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral are always supplementary)

2(a + b) = 180°

a + b = 90°

In △ABD,

Angle A = 180°-(a + b)

= 180°-90°

= 90°

Therefore, proved that one of its interior angle is 90°

Hence, rhombus inscribed in a circle is a square.

⇒ y + 140 = 180

⇒ y = 180-140

⇒ y = 40

**Question 2.**

Given that the vertices A, B, C of a quadrilateral ABCD lie on a circle. Also ∠A + ∠C = 180°, then prove that the vertex D also lie on the same circle.

**Answer:**

In a quadrilateral, if the sum of opposite angles is 180°, then it is a

cyclic quadrilateral.

In quad. ABCD, A + C = 180°,

Therefore, ABCD is a cyclic quad.

In a cyclic quad., the vertices lie on the same circle. Thus, D also

lies on the same circle.

Hence, proved.

**Question 3.**

Prove that a cyclic rhombus is a square.

**Answer:**

To prove rhombus inscribed in a circle is a square, we need to prove that either any one of its interior angles is equal to 90° or its diagonals are equal.

∠ABD = ∠DBC = b

∠ADB = ∠BDC = a

In the figure, diagonal BD is angular bisector of angle B and angle D.

In triangle ABD and BCD,

AD = BC (sides of rhombus are equal)

AB = CD (sides of rhombus are equal)

BD = BD (common side)

△ABD ≅ △BCD. (SSS congruency)

In the figure,

2a + 2b = 180° (as, opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral are always supplementary)

2(a + b) = 180°

a + b = 90°

In △ABD,

Angle A = 180°-(a + b)

= 180°-90°

= 90°

Therefore, proved that one of its interior angle is 90°

Hence, rhombus inscribed in a circle is a square.
