Question 1.
How will you prove ∆ ABC ~ AD AC?
Proof:
In ∆ ABC & ∆ DAC, ∠C is common and ∠BAC = ∠ADC = 90°
Therefore ∆ ABC ~ AD AC (AA similarity)

Check whether the following are Pythagorean triplets

1. 57, 176, 185
2. 264, 265, 23
3. 8, 41, 40

Solution:
1. For Pythagorean triplet, the sum of the squares of 2 sides is equivalent to square of 3rd side (hypotenuse)
Let us check of
572 + 1762 whether = 1852 or not
572 = 3249
1762 = 30976
1852 = 34225
572 + 1762 = 3249 + 30976 = 34225 = 1852
∴ 57, 176 & 185 are Pythagorean triplet.

2. 23, 264, 265
232 = 529
2642 = 69696
232 + 2642 = 70225
2652 = 70225
∴ 232 + 2642 = 2652
∴ Pythagorean triplet

3. 8, 41, 40
82 = 64
402 = 1600
82 + 402 = 1664
412 = 1681
82 + 402 ≠ 412 = 1
∴ They are not Pythagorean triplet

We can construct sets of Pythagorean triplets as follows. Let m and n be any two positive integers (m > n):
(a, b, c) is a Pythagorean triple if a = m2 – n2, b = 2mn and c = m2 + n2 (Think, why?) Complete the table. Solution: Activity – 2 (Text book Page No. 65)

Question 1.

Question 1.
The area of the trepezium is ……..
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ x h x (a + b) sq. units! Question 2.
The distance between the parallel sides of a trapezium is called as ………
its height

Question 3.
If the height and parallel sides of a trapezium are 5 cm, 7 cm and 5 cm respectively, then its area is ……..
30 sq cm
Hint:
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ x h x (a + b) sq. units
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ x 5 x (7 + 5)
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ x 5 x 12 = 30 sq.cm

Question 4.
In an isosceles trapezium, the non-parallel sides are ……….. in length.
Equal.

Question 5.
To construct a trapezium, ………… measurements are enough.
Four.

Question 6.
If the area and sum of the parallel sides are 60 cm2 and 12 cm, its height is ………..
10 cm
Hint:
Area of the trapezium = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ x h (a + b)
60 = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ x h x (12)
h = $$\frac{60×2}{12}$$ = 10 cm

Think (Text book Page No. 74) Question 1.
Can a rhombus, a square or a rectangle be called as a parallelogram? Justify your answer.
Solution:
Yes, a rhombus, a square or a rectangle can be called as parallelogram as the opposite sides are equal and parallel and diagonals bisect each other in this figures.
