Question 4 Triangles - Exercise 6.2

A and B are respectively the points on the sides PQ and PR of a ΔPQR such that PQ = 12.5 cm, PA = 5 cm, BR = 6 cm and PB = 4 cm. Is AB || QR?

Answer:

According to the question,

PQ = 12.5 cm

PA = 5 cm

BR = 6 cm

PB = 4 cm

Then,

QA = QP – PA = 12.5 – 5 = 7.5 cm

So,

PA/AQ = 5/7.5 = 50/75 = 2/3 … (i)

PB/BR = 4/6 = 2/3 … (ii)

Form Equations (i) and (ii).

PA/AQ = PB/BR

We know that, if a line divides any two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, then the line is parallel to the third side.

Therefore,

AB || QR.
