Sol. BDEF is a parallelogram.
∴ BD = EF                     …(1)
[Opposite side of a parallelogram]

Question. In quadrilateral ABCD, ∠A + ∠D = 180º. What special name can be given to this quadrilateral?
Sol. In quadrilateral ABCD, ∠A + ∠D = 180º i.e., the sum of two consecutive angles is 180º. So, pair of opposite side AB and CD are parallel. Therefore, quadrilateral ABCD is trapezium. Hence, special name which can be given to this quadrilateral ABCD is trapezium.

Sol. We know that an acute angle is less than 90º. All the angles of a quadrilateral cannot be acute angles because than equal sum of a quadrilateral will be than a 360º, whereas angle sum of quadrilateral is 360o.

Question. All the angles of a quadrilateral are equal. What special name is given to this quadrilateral?
Sol. All the angle of a quadrilateral are equal. Also, the sum of angles of a quadrilateral is 360º. Therefore, each angle of quadrilateral is 90o. So, the given quadrilateral is a rectangle.
Hence, special name given quadrilateral is rectangle.

Question. Can the angles 110º, 80º, 70º and 95º be the angles of a quadrilateral? Why or why not?
Sol. Sum of these angles 110º + 80º + 70º + 95º = 355º But, sum of the angles of a quadrilateral is always 360o. Hence, 110º, 80º, 70º and 95º cannot be the angles of a quadrilateral.

Question. One angle of a quadrilateral is of 108º and the remaining three angles are equal. Find each of the three equal angles.
Sol.
One angle of a quadrilateral is of 180º and let each of the three remaining equal angles be xº.
As the sum of the angles of a quadrilateral is 360º.
∴ 180º + x + x + x = 360º ⇒ 3x = 360º − 180º = 252º
∴ x = 252º ÷ 3 = 84º
Hence, each of the three angles be 84º.

Question. In ΔABC, AB = 5 cm, BC = 8 cm and CA = 7 cm. If D and E are respectively the midpoints of AB an BC, determine the length of DE.
Sol. In Δ ABC, AB = 5 cm, BC = 8 cm and CA= 7 cm. D and E are respectively the mid-points of AB and BC.

[Using the mid-point theorem]

Question. Diagonals AC and BD of a parallelogram ABCD intersect each other at O. If OA = 3 cm and OD = 2 cm, determine the lengths of AC and BD.
Sol. We know that diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
∴ AC = 2 × OA = 2 × 3 cm = 6 cm
And BD = 2OD = 2 × 2 cm = 4 cm
Hence, lengths of AC and BD are 6 cm and 4 cm respectively.

10. In Fig.8.2, ABCD and AEFG are two parallelograms. If ∠C = 55º, determine ∠F.

Sol. We know that opposite angle of parallelogram are equal.
In parallelogram ABCD, we have
∠A = ∠C
But, ∠C = 55º [Given]
∠A = 55º
Now, in parallelogram AEFG, we have
∠F = ∠A = 55º
Hence, ∠F = 55º .

Question. Opposite angles of a quadrilateral ABCD are equal. If AB = 4 cm, determine CD.
Sol.
Since opposite angles of a quadrilateral ACBD are equal. If AB = cm, determine CD.
[ ∵ Opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal]
But, AB = 4cm, therefore CD = 4cm.
Hence, CD = 4cm.

Sol. Yes, all the angles of a quadrilateral can be right angles. Angles sum of a quadrilateral will be 360o, which is true.

Question. Diagonals of a quadrilateral ABCD bisect each other. If ∠A= 35º, determine ∠B.
Sol. As the diagonals of a quadrilateral ABCD bisect each other, so ABCD is a parallelogram. Now, ABCD is a parallelogram
∴ ∠A+∠B =1800
[∵Adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary]
∴ 35 +∠B =18º
⇒ ∠B =180º −35º =145º

Question. E is the mid-point of the side AD of the trapezium ABCD with AB||DC. A line through E drawn parallel to AB intersect BC at F . Show that F is the mid-point of BC. [Hint: Join AC]
Sol. Given: A trapezium ABCD in which AB||CD and E is mid-point of the side AB. Also, EF||AB.
To prove: F is the mid-point of BC.

Construction: Join AC which intersect EF at O.
[∵ EF||AB and DC||AB ⇒AB||EF||DC]
∴ O is the mid-point of AC. [Converse of mid – point theorem]
Now, in ΔCAB,O is the mid-point of AC and OF||AB.
⇒ OF bisects BC.
Or F is the mid-point of BC.
Hence, proved.

Question. ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || DC and ∠A = ∠B = 45º. Find angles C and D of the trapezium.
Sol.
ABCD is a trapezium in which AB||DC.

Now, AB||DC and AD is transversal.
∴ ∠A+∠D =180º
[∵ Sum of interior angles on the side of the transversal is 180º]
⇒ 45º + ∠D =180º
⇒ ∠D = 180º − 45 = 135º
Similarly, 0 ∠B +∠C =180º
⇒ 45º + ∠C =180º
⇒ ∠C = 180º − 45º = 135º
Hence, ∠A = ∠B = 45º and 0 ∠C = ∠D = 135º .

Question. The angle between two altitudes of a parallelogram through the vertex of an obtuse angle of the parallelogram is 60º. Find the angles of the parallelogram.

∠1 + ∠2 + ∠B + ∠3 = 360º
⇒60º + 90º +∠B + 90º = 360º
⇒ ∠B + 240º = 360º
⇒ ∠B = 360º − 240º
⇒ ∠B =120º
[∵Opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal]
∠A+∠B =180º
[∵Sum of consecutive interior angles is 180o]
⇒ ∠A + 120º = 180º
⇒ ∠A =180º − 120º
⇒ ∠A = 60º
But, ∠C = ∠A = 60º
[∵Opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal]

Question. E and F are points on diagonal AC of a parallelogram ABCD such that AE = CF. Show that BFDE is a parallelogram.
Sol.
Given: A parallelogram ABCD: E and F are points of diagonal AC of parallelogram ABCD such that AE = CF.

To prove: BFDE is parallelogram.
Proof: ABCD is s parallelogram.
∴ OD = OB             …(1) [ ∵Diagonals of parallelogram bisect each other]
OA = OC                …(2) [Same reason as above]
AE = CF                  …(3) [Given]
Subtracting (3) from (2), we get
OA – AE = OC – CF
⇒ OE = OF            …(4)
∴ BFDE is parallelogram. [∵OD = OB and OE = OF]
Hence, proved.

Question. Through A, B and C, lines RQ, PR and QP have been drawn, respectively parallel to sides BC, CA and AB of a Δ ABC as shown in Fig.8.5. Show that BC = 1/2 QR

Sol. Given: Triangle ABC and PQR in which AB||PQ, BC||RQ and CA||PR.
To prove: BC = 1/2 QR
Proof: Quadrilateral RBCA is a parallelogram.
[∵ RA||BC and BR||CA]
∴ RA = BC                                …(1) [∵Opposite side of parallelogram]
Now, quadrilateral BCQA is a parallelogram.
∴ AQ = BC                                 …(2) [∵Opposite side of parallelogram]
Adding (1) and (2), we get
RA + AQ = 2BC
⇒ QR = 2BC
⇒ BC = 1/2 QR
Hence, proved.

Question. Can all the four angles of a quadrilateral be obtuse angles? Give reason for your answer.
Sol. No, because then the sum of four angles of the quadrilateral will be more than 360º whereas sum of four angles of a quadrilateral is always equal to 360º.

Question. ABCD is a rhombus in which altitude from D to side AB bisects AB. Find the angles of the rhombus.
Sol.
In DAPD and DBPD, we have

AP = BP                      [Given]
∠1 = ∠2                      [∵Each equal to 90º]
PD = PD                     [Common side]
So, by SAS Criterion of congruence, we have
ΔAPD ≅ ΔBPD
∴ ∠A = ∠3                             [CPCT]
But, ∠3 = ∠4 [∵ Diagonals bisect opposite angles of a rhombus]
⇒ ∠A = ∠3 = ∠4                            …(1)
SO, 0 ∠A+∠ABC =180º              [∵Sum of consecutive interior angles is 180º]
⇒ ∠A+ ∠3+∠4 =180º
⇒ ∠A+ ∠A+∠A =18º0                [Using (1)]
3∠A =180º
⇒ ∠A =180º/3 = 60º
Now, ∠ABC = ∠3 + ∠4
= 60º + 60º
=1200 [∵ Opposite angles of a rhombus are equal]
∴ ∠ADC = ∠ABC =120º             [Same reason as above]

To prove: ΔDEF is an equilateral triangle.
Proof: EF joints mid-points of sides of AB and AC respectively.
∴ EF = 1/2 BC                    …(1) [Mid-point theorem]
Similarly ,DE = 1/2 BC      …(2) [Mid-point theorem]
DF = 1/2 AC                      …(3) [Mid-point theorem]
But, AB = BC = CA            …(4) [Sides of an equilateral ΔABC]
From (1), (2), (3) and (4), we have
DE = EF = FD
∴ ΔDEF is an equilateral triangle.
Hence, proved.

AP = CQ       [Given]
∠1 = ∠2       [Alt. int. ∠s are equal]
∠3 = ∠4       [Vertically opp. ∠s ]
∴ ΔAOP ≅ ΔCOQ [By SAS congruence rule]
∴ OA = OC and OP = OQ        [CPCT]
Hence, AC and PQ bisect each other.

Sol.
∠BAP = ∠DAP = 1/2 ∠A       …(1)

Since ABCD is a parallelogram, we have

[∵ Sum of interior angles on the same sides of transversal is 180º]
In ΔABP, we have
∠BAP + ∠B + ∠APB = 180º
⇒ 1/2 θ∠A = 180º −∠A + ∠APB = 180º [Using (1) and (2)]
⇒ ∠APB = 1/2 ∠A                        …(3)
From (1) and (3), we get
∠BAP = ∠APB
BP = AB                                       …(4)
[∵ Side of opposite to equal angles are equal]
Since opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal, we have
⇒ 1/2 AD = BP                                       [∵P is the mid-point of BC]
⇒ 1/2 AD = AB                                      [∵From (4), BP = AB]
Since, opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal, we have
Hence, proved.

Question. A square is inscribed in an isosceles right triangle so that the square and the triangle have one angle common. Show that the vertex of the square opposite the vertex of the common angle bisects the hypotenuse.
Sol.
ABC is an isosceles right triangle with AB = BC. A square BFED is inscribed in triangle ABC so that ∠B = common = 90o. In ΔADE and ΔEFC, we have

DE = EF               …(1)        [∵Sides of a square are equal]
∠1+∠2 =180º         [Linear pair axiom]
⇒ 90º +∠2 =180º     [∵Each angle of a square = 90º]
⇒ ∠2 = 90
Similarly, ∠4 = 90º
∴ ∠2 = ∠4             …(2)     [∵Each = 90o]
Now, AB = BC [Given]
∴ ∠C = ∠A            …(3)     [∵Angles opp. To equal sides are equal]
From (1), (2) and (3), we get
ΔADE ≅ ΔEFC        [By AAS Congruence rule]

Sol. ABCD is a parallelogram, in which AB = 10cm and AD = 6cm. The bisector of ∠A meets DC in E. AE and BC produced meet at F.

∠EAD = ∠EFB …(2) [ Alt. ∠s ]
⇒ ∠BAE = ∠EFB [From (1) and (2)]
∴ BF = AB [∵Sides opposite to equal ∠s are equal]
⇒ BF = 10 cm [∵ AB = 10 cm]
⇒ BC + CF = 10 cm ⇒ 6 cm + CF = 10 cm
[∵ BC = AD = 6 cm, opposite sides of a ||gm]
⇒ CF = 10 – 6 cm = 4 cm

CF||BE
∴ BDFE is a parallelogram.
⇒ BC||EF                             [∵Opposite sides of a ||gm are parallel]
And BC = EF                      [∵Opposite sides of a ||gm are equal]
Hence, proved.

Question. E is the mid-point of a median AD of ΔABC and BE is produced to meet AC at F. Show that AF = (1/2)AC
Sol. Given: A ΔABC in which E is the mid-point of median AB and BE is produced to meet AC at F.

To prove:    AF = (1/2)AC
Construction: Draw DG||BF intersecting AC at G.
∴ AF = FG                              …(1)                [Converse of mid-point theorem]
In ΔFBC, D is the mid-point of BC and DG||BF.
∴ FG = GC                            …(2)                 [Converse of mid-point theorem]
From equation (1) and (2), we get
AF = FG = GC                                            …(3)
But, AC = AF + FG + GC
⇒ AC = AF + AF + AF [Using (3)]
⇒ AC = 3AF
⇒ AF = (1/2)AC
Hence, proved.

Question. Show that the quadrilateral formed by joining the mid-points of the consecutive sides of a square is also a square.
Sol.
Given: A square ABCD in which P, Q, R, S are the mid-points of sides AB, BC, CD, DA respectively. PQ, QR, RS and SP are joined.
To prove: PQRS is a square.
Construction: Join AC and BD.
Proof: In ΔABC , P and Q are the mid-points of sides AB and BC respectively.

∴ PQ|| AC and
PQ = (1/2)AC          …(1)
In DADC, R and S are the mid-points of CD and AD respectively.
∴ RS || AC and
RS = (1/2)AC        …(2)
From eqs. (1) and (2), we get
PQ||RS and PQ = RS       …(3)
Thus, in quadrilateral PQRS one pair of opposite sides are equal and parallel.
Hence, PQRS is a parallelogram.
Since ABCD is a square.
∴ AB = BC = CD = DA

⇒ PB = RC and BQ = CQ
Thus, in Δs PBQ and RCQ, we have
PB = RC
BQ = CQ                            [⇒ PB = CR and BQ = CQ]
And ∠PBQ = ∠RCQ          [∵Each equal to 90o]
So, By SAS criterion of congruence, we have
ΔPBQ ≅ ΔRCQ
⇒ PQ = QR                         [CPCT] …(4)
From (3) and (4), we have
PQ = QR = RS
But, PQRS is a parallelogram
∴ PQ = PS
So, PQ = QR = RS = PS              …(5)
Now, PQ||AC [From (1)]
⇒ PM||NO                            …(6)
Since, P and S are the mid-points of AB and AD respectively.
PS||BD
⇒ PN||MO                              …(7)
Thus, in quadrilateral PMON, we have
PM||NO [From (6)]
And PN||MO [From (7)]
So, PMON is a parallelogram.
⇒ ∠MPN = ∠MON
⇒ ∠MPN = ∠BOA [∵∠MPN = ∠BOA]
⇒ ∠MPN = 900
[∵ Diagonals of square are ∴ ⊥ AC ⊥ BD ⇒ ∠BOA = 900]
⇒ ∠QPS = 900
Thus, PQRS is a quadrilateral such that PQ = QR = RS = SP and ∠QPS = 900

Question. E and F are respectively the mid-points of the non-parallel sides AD and BC of a trapezium ABCD. Prove that EF || AB and 1/2 EF = (AB + CD) [Hint: Join BE and produce it to meet CD produced at G.]
Sol.

Given: A trapezium ABCD in which E and F are respectively the mid-points of the nonparallel sides AD and BC.
To prove: EF||AB and
EF = 1/2(AB +CD)
Construction: Join DF and produce it to intersect AB produced at G.
Proof: In ΔCFD and ΔBFG, we have
DC||AB
∴ ∠C = ∠3 [Alternate interior angles]
CF = BF
∠1 = ∠2 [Vertically opposite angles]
So, By ASA criterion of congruence, we have
DCFD ≅ DBFG
∴ CD = BG [CPCT]
EF joins mid-points of sides AD and GD respectively
∴ EF||AG [∵Mid-point theorem]
⇒ EF||AB
So, EF = (1/2) AG [Mid-point theorem]
⇒ EF = 1/2 (AB + AG)
⇒ EF = 1/2 (AB +CD)          [∵CD = BG]
Hence, proved.

Question. Prove that the quadrilateral formed by the bisectors of the angles of a parallelogram is a rectangle.
Sol.
Given: A quadrilateral ABCD in which bisectors of angles A, B, C, D intersect at P, Q, R, S to from a quadrilateral PQRS.

To Prove: PQRS is a rectangle.
Proof: Since ABCD is a parallelogram.
Therefore, AB||DC
Now, AB||DC and transversal AD intersect them at D and A respectively.
Therefore,
∠A+∠D =1800 [∵Sum of consecutive interior angles is 180o]
⇒ 1/2 ∠A = (1/2) ∠D =900
⇒ ∠DAS +∠ADS = 900 …(1)
[∵DS and AS are bisectors of ∠A and ∠D respectively]
But, in ΔDAS, we have
[∵Sum of the angles of a triangle is 180o]
⇒∠900 +∠ASD =1800 [Using (1)]
⇒ ∠ASD = 900
⇒ ∠PSR = 900       [∵ ∠ASD and ∠PSR are vertically opposite angles
∴ ∠PSR = ∠ASD ]
Similarly, we can prove that
∠SRQ = 900 ,∠RQP = 900 and ∠SPQ = 900
Hence, PQRS is a rectangle.

Question. P and Q are points on opposite sides AD and BC of a parallelogram ABCD such that PQ passes through the point of intersection O of its diagonals AC and BD. Show that PQ is bisected at O.
Sol. ABCD is a parallelogram. Its diagonal AC and BD bisect each other at O. PQ passes through the point of intersection O of its diagonal AC and BD.

In ΔAOP and ΔCOQ, we have
∠3 = ∠4                      [Alternate int. ∠s ]
OA = OC                     [Diagonals of a ||gm bisects each other]
∠1 = ∠2 [Vertically opposite angles]
∴ ΔAOP ≅ ΔCOQ [By ASA Congruence rule]
So, OP = OQ                 [CPCT]
Hence, PQ is bisected at O.

Question. ABCD is a rectangle in which diagonal BD bisects ∠B. Show that ABCD is a square.
Sol. Given: A rectangle ABCD in which diagonal BD bisects ∠B.

To prove: ABCD is a square.
Proof: DC||AB
[∵ Opposite sides of a rectangle are parallel]
⇒ ∠4 = ∠1 ..(1) [Alternate interior angles]
Similarly, ∠3 = ∠2                           …(2)         [Alternate interior angles]
And ∠1 = ∠2                                  …(3) [Given]
From equation (1), (2) and (3), we get
∠3 = ∠4
In ΔBDA and ΔBDC,we have
∠1 = ∠2                           [Given]
BD = BD                           [Common side]
∠3 = ∠4                           [proved above]
So, By ASA criterion of congruence, we have
ΔBDA ≡ ΔBDC
∴ AB = BC                         [CPCT]
So, ABCD is a square.
Hence, proved.

Question. D, E and F are respectively the mid-points of the sides AB, BC and CA of a triangle ABC. Prove that by joining these mid-points D, E and F, the triangles ABC is divided into four congruent triangles.
Sol. Given: A ΔABC and ΔDEF which is formed by joining the mid-point D, E and F of the sides AB, BC and CA of ΔABC.
