Geometry Sum | ABCD is a square. Prove in each case ∆APD ≅ ∆BPC | Find Angle DPC Angle PCD and Angle PCD |

   ABCD is a square and APB is an equilateral triangle.
Prove in each case:
  1)APD ≅BPC
   2) Find the angles of DPC

Solution :
First Part
GivenABP = Equilateral triangle
R.T.P.
1)APD ≅BPC
   2) Find DPC,PDC andPCD,
Proof: In APD and BPC

AP = BP | Same side of the equilateral triangle.
AD = BC | Same side of the Square.
and
DAP = DAB - PAB = 90°-60°=300
Similarly
BPC = ABC - ABP = 90°-60°=30°
DAP = BPC
APD ≅BPC SAS_Proved


2nd Part

In APD
AP=AD || As AP = AB (Equilateral Triangle).
We know that DAP = 30 °
APD = (180°- 30°)/2 || APD is an isoscless and APD is one of the base angle.
or APD = 150°/2
or APD = 75°
Similarly
BPC = 75°
Therefore DPC = 360°- (75°+75°+60°)
or DPC = 150°
Now in PDC
PD=PC || AsAPD ≅BPC
PDC is an isocles
And PDC = PCD = (180° -150°) /2
Or PDC = PCD = 15°
DPC=150°
PDC=15 °
and PCD=15 ° Answer

2nd Case proof for 2nd image and angle calculation are coming soon

Speed Distance and Time For Class 8 | Part 2 Mathematics | Relative Speed of Boat

In this video sums related to relative speed of boat in standstill water stream and in a water stream having speed in the same direction and also in the opposite direction have been discussed. Watch the video and comment below. If you have sum of boat and stream then post it in the comment box.

Sum No-1: Speed of a boat in still water is 9 km per hr. If the boat goes 54 km downstream in 4 hours.; find the the speed of the stream.
Sum No-2: The speed of a boat in still water is 10 km per hour. If the boat goes 35 km upstream in 5 hrs. ; find the speed of the stream.

Theorem: Tangent and Radius of a Circle | are Perpendicular to Each Other.

Theorem :Tangent and radius of a circle are perpendicular to each other.

Solution :

Given:
A circle with centre O.
AB is the tangent to the circle at point B
and OB is the radius of the circle.
R.T.P. OB ⊥ AC
Proof:

1.  OB < OC || Since each point of the tangent other than point B is outside the circle.

2.  Similarly it can be shown that out of all the line segments which would be drawn from point O to the tangent line AC, OB is the shortest.

3.   OB ⊥ AC || The shortest line sgement drawn from a given point to a given line , is ⊥ to the line.

Theorem : Opposite Angles of a Cyclic Quadrilateral are Supplementary | Class 8

Theorem : Opposite Angles of a Cyclic Quadrilateral are Supplementary.

Solution :

Given: ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.
R.T.P.(Require To Prove)

1.BAD + BCD = 1800
     2.ABC + ADC = 1800

Construction : Join OB and OD
Proof:

1.  BOD = 2 ∠BAD || Angle at the centre of a circle is twice the angle at the circumference.
2.  Reflex BOD + BOD = 2 (BAD + BCD) || Same as stated above.
  or   2 (BAD + BCD) = 3600 || By statement 2.
or   (BAD + BCD) = 1800
3. Similarly by joining OA and OC it can be proved that
  ABC + ADC = 1800
4.   BAD + BCD = 1800
&      ABC + ADC = 1800   Proved

Theorem | the angle subtended by an arc of a circle | at the centre is double the angle subtended by it at | any point on the remaining part of the circle

Theorem :

A circle  with centre O in which AB subtends AOB at centre and angle ACB at any point  on the remaining part of the circle.
R.T.P. - AOB =  2 xACB

Solution :

Construction: Join CO and produce CO to point D .

1. In AOC, OC = OA || Radii of same circle .
2. OCA= OAC || Base angles of isoscles ∆ in which OC = OA
3. Exterior AOD = OCA+ OAC || Exterior ∠ of a ∆ = sum of two opposite interior angles.
or AOD = OCA+ OCA
or AOD = 2 . ∠ OCA - - - - Eqn. 1
4. Similary ot can be proved that BOD = 2. OCB - - - - - - Eqn. 2
5. Adding Eqn 1 and Eqn. 2 we get
AOD + BOD = 2 . ∠OCA + 2. ∠OCB
AOB = 2 (∠OCA + ∠OCB)
AOB = 2 ∠ACB Proved
