CHAPTER 10 (A) Main Concepts and Results

Construction of a triangle similar to a given triangle as per given scale factor which may be less than 1 or greater than 1. Construction of the pair of tangents from an external point to a circle.

Sample Question 1 : To divide a line segment AB in the ratio p : q ( p, q are positive integers), draw a ray AX so that BAX is an acute angle and then mark points on ray AX at equal distances such that the minimum number of these points is (A) greater of p and q (C) p + q 1 (B) p + q (D) pq

Sample Question 2 : To draw a pair of tangents to a circle which are inclined to each other at an angle of 35, it is required to draw tangents at the end points of those two radii of the circle, the angle between which is (A) 105 (B) 70 (C) 140 (D) 145

2. To divide a line segment AB in the ratio 4:7, a ray AX is drawn first such that BAX is an acute angle and then points A1, A2, A3, .... are located at equal distances on the ray AX and the point B is joined to (B) A11 (C) A 10 (D) A9 (A) A12 3. To divide a line segment AB in the ratio 5 : 6, draw a ray AX such that BAX is an acute angle, then draw a ray BY parallel to AX and the points A1, A2, A3, ... and B1, B2 , B3 , ... are located at equal distances on ray AX and BY, respectively. Then the points joined are (A) A5 and B 6 (B) A6 and B5 (C) A4 and B5 (D) A5 and B 4 4. To construct a triangle similar to a given ABC with its sides 3 of the 7 corresponding sides of ABC, first draw a ray BX such that CBX is an acute angle and X lies on the opposite side of A with respect to BC. Then locate points B1, B2, B3, ... on BX at equal distances and next step is to join (B) B3 to C (C) B7 to C (D) B4 to C (A) B10 to C 5. To construct a triangle similar to a given ABC with its sides 8 of the 5 corresponding sides of ABC draw a ray BX such that CBX is an acute angle and X is on the opposite side of A with respect to BC. The minimum number of points to be located at equal distances on ray BX is (B) 8 (C) 13 (D) 3 (A) 5 6. To draw a pair of tangents to a circle which are inclined to each other at an angle of 60, it is required to draw tangents at end points of those two radii of the circle, the angle between them should be (B) 90 (C) 60 (D) 120 (A) 135

Solution : False. As 2 3: 2 not a positive integer, while 1 is. EXERCISE 10.2 Write True or False and give reasons for your answer in each of the following: 1. By geometrical construction, it is possible to divide a line segment in the ratio 3: 1 . 3 2. 7 of the 3 corresponding sides of ABC, draw a ray BX making acute angle with BC and X lies on the opposite side of A with respect to BC. The points B1, B2, ...., B7 are located at equal distances on BX, B3 is joined to C and then a line segment B6C' is drawn parallel to B3C where C' lies on BC produced. Finally, line segment A' C' is drawn parallel to AC. To construct a triangle similar to a given ABC with its sides 3. 4. A pair of tangents can be constructed from a point P to a circle of radius 3.5 cm situated at a distance of 3 cm from the centre. A pair of tangents can be constructed to a circle inclined at an angle of 170. (D) Short Answer Questions Sample Question 1 : Draw an equilateral triangle ABC of each side 4 cm. Construct a triangle similar to it and of scale factor 3 . Is the new triangle also an equilateral? 5 Solution : Follow the similar steps as given in Mathematics Textbook for Class X. Yes, the new triangle is also equilateral.
