In triangles ABC and PQR, ∠A = ∠Q and ∠B = ∠R. Which side of Δ PQR should be equal to side BC of Δ ABC so that the two triangles are congruent? Give reason for your answer.
“If two sides and an angle of one triangle are equal to two sides and an angle of another triangle, then the two triangles must be congruent.” Is the statement true? Why?
“If two angles and a side of one triangle are equal to two angles and a side of another triangle, then the two triangles must be congruent.” Is the statement true? Why?
Is it possible to construct a triangle with lengths of its sides as 4 cm, 3 cm, and 7 cm? Give reason for your answer.
In Fig. D and E are points on side BC of a Δ ABC such that BD = CE and AD = AE. Show that Δ ABD ≅ Δ ACE.
CDE is an equilateral triangle formed on a side CD of a square ABCD (Fig.7.5). Show that
Δ ADE ≅ Δ BCE.
The image of an object placed at point A before a plane mirror LM is seen at point B by an observer at D as shown in Fig. 7.12. Prove that the image is as far behind the mirror as the object is in front of the mirror.
ABC is an isosceles triangle with AB = AC and D is a point on BC such that AD ⊥ BC (Fig. ). To prove that ∠BAD = ∠CAD, a student proceeded as follows:
In Δ ABD and Δ ACD,
AB = AC (Given)
∠B = ∠C (because AB = AC)
And ∠ADB = ∠ADC
Therefore, Δ ABD Δ Δ ACD (AAS)
So, ∠BAD = ∠CAD (CPCT)
What is the defect in the above arguments?
P is a point on the bisector of ∠ABC. If the line through P, parallel to BA meet BC at Q, prove that BPQ is an isosceles triangle.
ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AB = BC and AD = CD. Show that BD bisects both the angles ABC and ADC.
O is a point in the interior of a square ABCD such that OAB is an equilateral triangle. Show that Δ OCD is an isosceles triangle.
ABC and DBC are two triangles on the same base BC such that A and D lie on the opposite sides of BC, AB = AC and DB = DC. Show that AD is the perpendicular bisector of BC.
ABC is an isosceles triangle in which AC = BC. AD and BE are respectively two altitudes to sides BC and AC. Prove that AE = BD.
