## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Solutions Term 1 Chapter 4 Geometry Ex 4.1

Question 1.

From the figure given, prove that ∆ABC ~ ∆DEF.

Solution:

From the ∆ABC,

AB = AC

It is an isosceles triangle

Angles opposite to equal sides are equal

∴ ∠B = ∠C = 65°

∴ ∠B + ∠C = 65° + 65°

= 130°

We know that .sum of three angles is a triangle = 180°

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°

∠A + 130° = 180°

∠A = 180°-130°

∠A = 50°

From ∆DEF, ∠D = 50°

∴ Sum of Remaining angles = 180° – 50° = 130°

DE = FD

∴ ∠D = ∠F

From ∆ABC and ∆DEF

∠A = ∠D = 50°

∠B = ∠E = 65°

∠C = ∠F = 65°

∴ By AAA criteria ∆DEF ~ ∆ABC

Question 2.

Prove that ∆GUM ~ ∆ BOX from the given figure.

Solution:

That is their corresponding sides are proportional.

∴ By SSS similarity ∆GUM ~ ∆BOX.

Question 3.

In the given figure YH ||TE Prove that ∆WHY ~ ∆WET and also find HE and TE.

Solution:

Question 4.

In the given figure, if ∆EAT ~ ∆BUN find the measure of all angles.

Solution:

Given ∆EAT ≡ ∆BUN

∴ Corresponding angles are equal

∴ ∠E = ∠B ..(1)

∠A = ∠U ..(2)

∠T = ∠N ..(3)

∠E = x°

∠A = 2x°

Sum of three angles of a triangle = 180°

In ∆EAT, x + 2x + ∠T = 180°

∠T = 180° – (x° + 2x° )

∠T = 180°- 3x° …(4)

Also in ∆BUN

(x + 40)° + + ∠U = 180°

x + 40° + x + ∠U = 180°

2x° + 40° + ∠U = 180°

∠U = 180° – 2x – 40°

= 140° – 2x°

Now by (2)

∠A = ∠U

2x = 140° – 2x

2x + 2x = 140°

4x = 140°

∠A = 2x° = 2 × 35° = 70°

∠N = x + 40°

= 35° + 40° = 75°

∴ ∠T = ∠N = 75°

∠E = ∠B = 35°

∠A = ∠U = 70°

Question 5.

From the given figure, UB || AT and CU ≡ CB Prove that ∆CUB ~ ∆CAT and hence ∆CAT is isosceles.

Solution:

Question 6.

In the figure, ∠CIP ≡ ∠COP and ∠HIP ≡ ∠HOP. Prove that IP ≡ OP.

Solution:

Question 7.

In the given triangle, AC ≡ AD and ∠CBD ≡ ∠DEC. Prove that ∆BCF ≡ ∆EDF.

Solution:

Question 8.

In the given figure, ∆ BCD is isosceles with base BD and ∠BAE ≡ ∠DEA. Prove that AB ≡ ED .

Solution:

Question 9.

In the given figure, D is the midpoint of OE and ∠CDE = 90°. Prove that ∆ODC ≡ ∆EDC.

Solution:

Question 10.

In the figure, if SW ≡ SE and ∠NWO ≡ ∠NEO. then, prove that NS bisects WE and ∠NOW = 90°

Proof:

Question 11.

Is ∆PRQ ≡ ∆QSP ? Why ?

Solution:

In ∠PRQ = ∠PSQ = 90° given

PR = QS = 3 cm given

PQ = PQ = 5 cm common

It satisfies RHS criteria

∴ ∆PRQ congruent to ∆QSP.
