## 7. Given that mPRQ = 120

We know that the line joining the centre and
the external point is the angle bisector between
the tangents.
120
Thus, mPRO = mQRO = 60
2
Also we know that lengths of tangents from an external point
are equal.
Thus, PR = RQ.
Join OP and OQ.
Since OP and OQ are the radii from the centre O,
OP PR and OQ RQ.
Thus, OPR and OQR are right angled congruent triangles.
Hence, POR=90 PRO=90 60 30
QOR=90 QRO=90 60 30

8. Let the given circle touch the sides AB and AC of the triangle at points F and E
respectively and let the length of line segment AF be x.
Now, it can be observed that:
BF = BD = 6 cm (tangents from point B)
CE = CD = 9 cm (tangents from point C)
AE = AF = x (tangents from point A)
AB = AF + FB = x + 6
BC = BD + DC = 6 + 9 = 15
CA = CE + EA = 9 + x
2s = AB + BC + CA = x + 6 + 15 + 9 + x = 30 + 2x
s = 15 + x
s a = 15 + x 15 = x
s b = 15 + x (x + 9) = 6
s c = 15 + x (6 + x) = 9

Given that the length of the diagonal of the rectangular field is 16 metres more than
the shorter side.
Thus, diagonal = 16 + b
Since longer side is 14 metres more than shorter side, we have,
= 14 + b
Diagonal is the hypotenuse of the triangle.
Consider the following figure of the rectangular field.

## Let P be an external point and PA and PB are tangents to the circle.

We need to prove that PA = PB
Now consider the triangles OAP and OBP
mA = mB = 90
OP = OP [common]
OA = OB = radii of the circle
Thus, by Right Angle-Hypotenuse-Side criterion of congruence we have,
OAP OBP
The corresponding parts of the congruent triangles are congruent.
Thus,
PA = PB

27. In the figure, C is the midpoint of the minor arc PQ, O is the centre of the circle and
AB is tangent to the circle through point C.
We have to show that the tangent drawn at the midpoint of the arc PQ of a circle is
parallel to the chord joining the end points of the arc PQ.
We will show that PQ AB.
It is given that C is the midpoint point of the arc PQ.
So, arc PC = arc CQ.
PC = CQ

## This shows that PQC is an isosceles triangle.

Thus, the perpendicular bisector of the side PQ of PQC passes through vertex C.
The perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through the centre of the circle.
So the perpendicular bisector of PQ passes through the centre O of the circle.
Thus perpendicular bisector of PQ passes through the points O and C.
PQ OC
AB is the tangent to the circle through the point C on the circle.
AB OC
The chord PQ and the tangent PQ of the circle are perpendicular to the same line OC.
PQ AB.

AA1 = A1A2 = A2A3 = A3A4 = A4A5 = A5A6 = A6A7.
7. Join A7B.

8. Since we have to construct a triangle each of whose sides is of the
7
corresponding sides of ABC. So take five parts out of seven equal parts on AX. i.e.
from point A5, draw A5B' || A7B, meeting AB at B'.
9. From B', draw B'C' || BC, meeting AC at C'
10. AB'C' is the required, each of the sides is five-seventh of the corresponding sides
of ABC.

## 31. A(k + 1, 2k) , B(3k, 2k + 3) and (5k 1, 5k)

If 3 points are collinear then area of triangle formed by them = 0
