**Question 1.**

**In the following figure, point D divides AB in the ratio 3 : 5. Find:**

**Solution:**

**Question 2.**

**In the given figure, PQ // AB;**

**CQ = 4.8 cm, QB = 3.6 cm and AB = 6.3 cm. Find:**

**(i) \(\frac { CP }{ PA }\)**

**(ii) PQ**

**(iii) If AP = x, then the value of AC in terms of x.**

**Solution:**

In the given figure,

PQ || AB

CQ = 4.8 cm, QB = 3.6 cm, AB = 6.3 cm

**Question 3.**

**A line PQ is drawn parallel tp the side BC of ΔABC which cuts side AB at P and side AC at Q. If AB = 9.0 cm, CA = 6.0 cm and AQ = 4.2 cm, find the length of AP.**

**Solution:**

In ΔABC, PQ || BC

AB = 9.0 cm, CA = 6 cm, AQ = 4.2 cm

**Question 4.**

**In ΔABC, D and E are the points on sides AB and AC respectively.**

**Find whether DE // BC, if:**

**(i) AB = 9 cm, AD = 4 cm, AE = 6 cm and EC = 7.5 cm**

**(ii) AB = 63 cm, EC = 11.0 cm, AD = 0.8 cm and AE = 1.6 cm.**

**Solution:**

In ΔABC, D and E are the points on sides AB and AC respectively.

**Question 5.**

**In the given figure, ΔABC ~ ΔADE. If AE : EC = 4 : 7 and DE = 6.6 cm, find BC. If ‘x’ be the length of the perpendicular from ****A to DE, find the length of perpendicular from A to BC in terms of ‘x’.**

**Solution:**

In the given figure,

ΔABC ~ ΔADE

AE : EC = 4 : 7, DE = 6.6 cm, BC = ?

Draw AL ⊥ DE and AM ⊥ BC and AL = x cm

Find AM in terms of x

ΔADE ~ ΔABC

**Question 6.**

**A line segment DE is drawn parallel to base BC of ΔABC which cuts AB at point D and AC at point E. If AB = 5 BD and EC = 3.2 cm, find the length of AE.**

**Solution:**

In ΔABC DE || BC

AB = 5 BD, EC = 3.2 cm

**Question 7.**

**In the figure, given below, AB, CD and EF are parallel lines. Given AB = 7.5 cm, DC = y cm, EF = 4.5 cm, BC = x cm and CE = 3 cm, calculate the values of x and y.**

**Solution:**

(i) In ΔACB and ΔFCE, we have

∠ACB = ∠FCE (vertically opposite angles)

∠CBA = ∠CEF (alternate angles)

ΔACB ~ ΔFCE (AA Axiom of similarity)

Thus their corresponding sides are proportional.

**Question 8.**

**In the figure, given below, PQR is a right angle triangle right angled at Q. XY is parallel to QR, PQ = 6 cm, PY = 4 cm and PX : XQ = 1 : 2. Calculate the lengths of PR and QR.**

**Solution:**

Given, PQ = 6 cm; PY = 4 cm;

PX : XQ = 1 : 2

Since a line drawn || to one side of triangle divide the other two sides proportionally.

**Question 9.**

**In the following figure, M is mid-point of BC of a parallelogram ABCD. DM intersects the diagonal AC at P and AB produced at E. Prove that: PE = 2PD.**

**Solution:**

In the given figure, ABCD is a ||gm

AB || CD, AD || BC

M is mid point of BC

DM intersect AB produced at E and AC at P

To prove: PE = 2PD

Proof: In ΔDEA,

AD || BC (Opposite sides of || gm)

M is mid-point of CB B is mid-point of AE

AB = BE ⇒ AE = 2AB or 2CD

In ΔPAE and ΔPCD

∠APE = ∠CPD (Vertically opposite angles)

∠PAE = ∠PCD (Alternate angles)

ΔPAE ~ ΔPCD

**Question 10.**

**The given figure shows a parallelogram ABCD. E is a point in AD and CE produced meets BA produced at point F. If AE = 4 cm, AF = 8 cm and AB = 12 cm, find the perimeter of the parallelogram ABCD.**

**Solution:**

In the given figure, ABCD is a ||gm E is a point on AD

CE is produced to meet BA produced at point F

AE = 4 cm, AF = 8 cm, AB = 12 cm

To find the perimeter of ||gm ABCD

In ΔFBC,

AD or AE || BC (Opposite sides of ||gm)

Perimeter of ||gm ABCD = 2 (AB + BC) = 2 (12 + 10) cm = 2 x 22 = 44 cm
