**Exercise 2.5 Class 10 Maths Triangles Question 1.**

Sides of triangles are given below. Determine which of them are right triangles. In case of a right triangle, write the length of its hypotenuse.

i) 7 cm, 24 cm, 25 cm,

ii) 3 cm, 8 cm, 6 cm.

iii) 50 cm, 80 cm, 100 cm.

iv) 13 cm, 12 cm, 5 cm.

Solution:

In ⊥∆ABC, ∠B = 90°.

Let AB = a, BC = b, Hypotenuse AC = c then

AC^{2} = AB^{2} + BC^{2}

c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2}

∴ Here diagonal is the greatest side.

i) a, b,c

7 cm, 24 cm, 25 cm,

c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2}

25^{2} = (7)^{2} + (24)^{2}

625 = 49 + 576

625 = 625

625 = 49 + 576 625 = 625

∴ This is right angled triangle.

Measurement of Hypotenuse, c = 25 cm.

ii) a c b

3 cm, 8 cm, 6 cm.

c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2}

8^{2} = (3)^{2} + (6)^{2}

64 = 9 + 36

64 ≠ 45

∴ These are not sides of right angled triangle.

iii) a b c

50 cm, 80 cm, 100 cm.

c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2}

100^{2}= (50)^{2} + (80)^{2}

10000 = 2500 + 6400

10000 ≠ 8900

∴ These are not sides of right angled triangle.

iv) a b c

12 cm, 5 cm, 13 cm,

c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2}

13^{2} = (12)^{2} + (5)^{2}

169 = 144 + 25

169 = 169

∴ These are sides of right angled triangle.

Measurement of Hypotenuse =13 cm.

**Triangles Exercise 2.5 Question 2.**

PQR is a triangle right angled at P and M is a point on QR such that PM ⊥ QR. Show that PM^{2} = QM.MR.

Solution:

Data: PQR is a triangle 9 right angled at P and M is a point on QR such that PM ⊥ QR.

To Prove: PM^{2} = QM.MR

Proof: In ⊥D QPR, ∠P = 90°,

QR^{2} = QP^{2} + PR^{2} ……………. (i)

In ⊥D PMQ, ∠M = 90°

QP^{2} = PM^{2} + QM^{2} ………. (ii)

In ⊥D PMR, ∠M = 90°

PR^{2} = PM^{2} + MR^{2} ……………. (iii)

By Adding eqn. (ii) and (iii)

QP^{2} + PR^{2} = PM^{2} + QM^{2} + PM^{2} + MR^{2}

QR^{2} = 2PM^{2} + QM^{2} + MR^{2} (. Eqn. (i))

(QM + MR)^{2} = 2PM^{2} + QM^{2} + MR^{2}

QM^{2} + MR^{2} + 2QM.MR = 2PM^{2} + QM^{2} + MR^{2}

QM^{2} – QM^{2} + MR^{2} – MR^{2} + 2QM.MR = 2PM^{2}

2QM.MR = 2PM^{2}

2PM^{2} = 2QM.MR

∴ PM^{2} = QM.MR

**Triangles Class 10 Exercise 2.5 Question 3.**

In the following figure, ABD is a triangle right angled at A and AC ⊥BD. Show that

i) AB^{2}= BC.BD

ii) AC^{2} = BC.DC

iii) AD^{2} = BD.CD

Solution:

Data: In ∆ABD, ∠A = 90°,

AC ⊥ BD.

To Proved: AB^{2} = BC.BD

ii) AC^{2} = BC.DC

iii) AD^{2} = BD.CD

i) AB^{2} = BC.BD

∆ACB ~ ∆BAD (. Theorem7)

ABBD=BCAB

∴ AB^{2}= BC × BD.

ii) AC^{2} = BC.DC

∆BCA ~ ∆ACD

ABAD=ACCD=BCAC

∴ AC × AC = BC × CD

∴ AC^{2} = BC × CD

iii) AD^{2} = BD.CD

∆ACD ~ ∆BAD

ADBD=CDAD=ACAB

∴ AD × AD = BD × DC

∴ AD^{2} = BD × DC

**Triangles Class 10 Exercise 2.5 Solutions Question 4.**

ABC is an isosceles triangle right angled at C. Prove that AB^{2} = 2AC^{2}.

Solution:

Data: ABC is an isosceles triangle right angled at C.

To Prove: AB^{2} = 2AC^{2}.

In ⊥∆ACB, ∠C = 90°

∴ AB^{2}= AC^{2} + BC^{2}

(∵ Pythagoras Theorem)

AB^{2} = AC^{2} + AC^{2} (∵ AC = BC)

AB^{2} = 2 AC^{2}.

**10th Maths Triangles Exercise 2.5 Question 5.**

ABC is an isosceles triangle with AC = BC. If AB^{2} = 2AC^{2}, prove that ABC is a right-angled triangle.

Solution:

Data: ABC is an isosceles triangle with AC = BC.

AB^{2} = 2 AC^{2}.

To Prove: ∆ABC is a right angled triangle

AB^{2} = 2AC^{2} (Data)

AB^{2} = AC^{2} + AC^{2}

AB^{2} = AC^{2} + BC^{2} (∵ AC = BC)

Now, in ∆ABC, square of one side is equal to squares of other two sides.

∆ABC is a right angled triangle, Opposite angle to AB, i.e., ∠C is 90°.

**KSEEB Solutions For Class 10 Maths Triangles Question 6.**

ABC is an equilateral triangle of side 2a. Find each of its altitudes.

Solution:

Data: ABC is an equilateral triangle of side 2a.

To Prove: Altitude of ∆ABC,

AD =?

In equilateral triangle

D bisect base.

∴ AB = BC = CA = 2a. 3 D a

If BC = 2a,

12BC=a unit

∴ BD = DC = a.

Now, in ⊥∆ADB, ∠D = 90°

∴ AD^{2} + BD^{2} = AB^{2}

AD^{2} + a^{2} = (2a)^{2}

AD^{2} + a^{2} = 4a^{2}

∴ AD^{2} = 4a^{2} – a^{2}

AD^{2} = 3a^{2}.

AD2−−−−√=3a2−−−√

∴Altitude,AD=3–√a unit.

**Class 10 Maths Exercise 2.5 Solution Question 7.**

Prove that the sum of the squares of the sides of a rhombus is equal to the sum of the squares of its diagonals.

Solution:

Data: ABCD is a rhombus.

Here, AB = BC = CD = DA.

Diagonals AC and BD intersects at ’O’.

To Prove: AB^{2} + BC^{2} + CD^{2} + DA^{2} = AC^{2} + BD^{2}.

In rhombus diagonals bisects perpendicularly.

∴ ∠AOB = ∠AOD = 90°.

In ⊥∆AOB,

AB^{2} = AO^{2} + BO^{2} ……..(i)

In ⊥∆BOC,

AC^{2} = BO^{2} + CO^{2} ……..(ii)

In ⊥∆COD,

CD^{2} = OC^{2} + OD^{2} ……….(iii)

In ⊥∆AOD,

AD^{2} = AO^{2} + OD^{2}…………(iv)

By Adding equations (i) + (ii) + (iii) + (iv)

AB^{2} + BC^{2} + CD^{2} + DA^{2} =

= AO^{2} + BO^{2} + BO^{2} + CO^{2} + CO^{2} + DO^{2} + AO^{2} + OD^{2}

= 2AO^{2} + 2BO^{2} + 2CO^{2} + 2DO^{2}

= 2AO^{2} + 2CO^{2} + 2BO^{2} + 2DO^{2}

Now, RHS = 2AO^{2} + 2CO^{2} + 2BO^{2} + 2DO^{2}

=2×(12AC)2+2×(12AC)2+2×(12BD)2+2×(12BD)2

=2×14AC2+2×14AC2+2×14BD2+2×14BD2

=12AC2+12AC2+12BD2+12BD2

RHS = AC^{2} + BD^{2}

∴ LHS = RHS

∴ AB^{2} + BC^{2} + CD^{2} + DA^{2} = AC^{2} + BD^{2}.

i) OA^{2} + OB^{2} + OC^{2} – OD^{2} – OE^{2} – OF^{2} = AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2}

ii) AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2} = AE^{2} + CD^{2} + BF^{2}.

Solution:

Data: O is a point in the interior of a triangle ABC, OD ⊥ BC, OE ⊥ AC, OF⊥ AB.

To Proved: i) OA^{2} + OB^{2} + OC^{2} – OD^{2} – OE^{2} – OF^{2} = AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2}

ii) AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2} = AE^{2} + CD^{2} + BF^{2}

(i) OA^{2} + OB^{2} + OC^{2} – OD^{2} – OE^{2} – OF^{2} = AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2}

OA^{2} = AF^{2} + OF^{2} → (i)

OB^{2} = BD^{2} + OD^{2} → (ii)

OC^{2} = OE^{2} + EC^{2} → (iii)

By Adding equations (i) + (ii) + (iii),

OA^{2} + OB^{2}+ OC^{2} = AF^{2} + OF^{2} + BD^{2} + OD^{2} + OE^{2} +EC^{2}

∴ OA^{2} + OB^{2} + OC^{2} – OE^{2} – OF^{2} – OD^{2} = AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2}

(ii) AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2} = AE^{2} + CD^{2} + BF^{2}.

OA^{2} = AF^{2} + OF^{2}

∴ AF^{2} = OA^{2} – OF^{2} → (i)

OB^{2} = BD^{2} + OD^{2}

∴BD^{2} = OB^{2} – OD^{2} → (ii)

OC^{2} = OE^{2} + EC^{2}

∴ CE^{2} = OC^{2} – OE^{2} → (iii)

From adding equations (i) + (ii) + (iii),

AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2} = OA^{2} – OF^{2} + OB^{2} – OD^{2} + OC^{2} – OE^{2}

AF^{2 }+ BD^{2} + CE^{2} = OA^{2} – OE^{2} + OB^{2} – OF^{2} + OC^{2} – OE^{2}

∴ AF^{2} + BD^{2} + CE^{2} = AE^{2} + FB^{2} + CD^{2} .

**Exercise 2.5 Class 10 Question 9.**

A ladder 10 m long reaches a window 8 m above the ground. Find the distance of the foot of the ladder from base of the wall.

Solution:

In ⊥∆ACB, ∠C = 90°, BC = ?

AC^{2} + CB^{2} = AB^{2}

(8)^{2} + CB^{2} = (10)^{2}

64 + CB^{2} = 100

CB^{2} = 100 – 64

CB^{2} = 36

∴ CB = 6

∴ Ladder is at a distance of 6m from the base of the wall.

**2.5 Maths Class 10 Question 10.**

A guy wire attached to a vertical pole of height 18 m is 24 m long and has a stake attached to the other end. How far from the base of the pole should the stake be driven so that the wire will be taut?

Solution:

In ⊥∆PQR, ∠Q = 90°, QR = ?

∴ PQ^{2} + QR^{2} = PR^{2}

(18)^{2} + QR^{2} = (24)^{2}

324 + QR^{2} = 576

QR^{2} = 576 – 324

QR^{2} = 252

∴ QR = 15.8 m.

**Triangles Class 10 KSEEB Solutions Question 11.**

An aeroplane leaves an airport and flies due north at a speed of 1000 km per hour. At the same time, another aeroplane leaves the same airport and flies due west at a speed of 1200 km per hour. How far apart will be the two planes after 112 hours?

Solution:

Distance travelled by aeroplace trowards North is 112 hours :

=1000×112

=1000×32

= 1500 km.

Diatance travelled by aeroplane towards West in 112 Hours :

=1200×112

=1200×32

= 1800 km.

In ⊥∆AOB,

AB^{2} = OA^{2} + OB^{2}

= (1500)^{2} + (1800)^{2}

= 2250000 + 3240000 = 5490000

AB=5490000−−−−−−−√

AB=90000×61−−−−−−−−−√

AB=30061−−√km km

∴ Two planes are 300V6T km. apart after 14 hours

Prove that AE^{2} + BD^{2} = AB^{2} + DE^{2}.

Solution:

Data: In ∆ABC, ∠C = 90°, D and E are points on the sides CA and CB respectively

Top Prove: AE^{2} + BD^{2} = AB^{2} + DE^{2}

In ⊥∆ACE, ∠C = 90°

∴ AE^{2} = AC^{2} + CE^{2} ………. (i)

In ⊥∆DEB, ∠C = 90°

∴ BD^{2} = DC^{2} + CB^{2} ………… (ii)

From adding equations (i) + (ii)

AE^{2} + BD^{2} = AC^{2} + CE^{2} + DC^{2} + CB^{2}

= AC^{2} + CB^{2} + DC^{2} + CE^{2}

∴ AE^{2} + BD^{2} = AB^{2} + DE^{2} ( . Theorem 8).

**Triangles Class 10 Solutions KSEEB Question 14.**

The perpendicular from A on side BC of a ∆ABC intersects BC at D such that DB = 3CD (see the following figure) Prove that 2AB^{2} = 2AC^{2} + BC^{2}.

Solution:

In ∆ACD,

AC^{2} = AD^{2} + DC^{2}

AD^{2} = AC^{2} – DC^{2}……….. (1)

In ∆ABD,

AB^{2} = AD^{2} + DB^{2}

AD^{2} = AB^{2} – DB^{2}………. (2)

From equations (1) and (2),

AC^{2} – DC^{2} = AB^{2} – DB^{2} ………… (3)

3DC = DB (data given)

DC=BC4, and DB=3BC4 ……….. (3)

Substituting eqn. (4) in eqn. (3),

AC2−(BC4)2=AB2−(3BC4)2

AC2−BC216=AB2−9BC216

16AC2−BC216=16AB2−9BC216

16AC^{2} – BC^{2} = 16 AB^{2} – 9BC^{2}

16AB^{2} – 16AC^{2} = 9 BC^{2} – BC^{2}

16AB^{2} – 16AC^{2} = 8BC^{2}

8(2AB^{2} – 2AC^{2} = BC^{2})

2AB^{2} – 2AC^{2} = BC^{2}

2AB^{2} = 2AC^{2} ≠ BC^{2}

In ⊥∆ADC, ∠ADC = 90°

∴ AC^{2} = AD^{2} + DC^{2}

=AD2+(12AC)2

(DC=12BCDC=12AC)

AC2=AD2+14AC2

AC21−14AC2=AD2

4AC2−1AC24=AD2

∴ 3AC^{2} = 4AD^{2}.
