Question 1.
Solution:
We know that two triangles are similarity of their corresponding angles are equal and corresponding sides are proportional.
(i) In ∆ABC and ∆PQR
∠A = ∠Q = 50°
∠B = ∠P = 60° and ∠C = ∠R = 70°
∆ABC ~ ∆QPR (AAA axiom)
(ii) In ∆ABC and ∆DEF
In ∆ABC,
AB = 3 cm, BC = 4.5
and in ∆DEF
DF = 6 cm, DE = 9 cm
∆ABC is not similar to ∆DEF
As in ∆ABC, ∠A is not included of two sides AB and BC.
(iii) In ∆ABC and ∆PQR
In ∆ABC,
AC = 8 cm BC = 6 cm
Included ∠C = 80°
In ∆PQR,
PQ = 4.5 cm, QR = 6 cm
and included ∠Q = 80° (v) In ∆ABC,
∠A = 80°, ∠C = 70°
and third angle
∠B = 180° – (80° + 70°)
⇒ ∠B = 180° – 150° = 30°
In ∆MNR,
∠M = 80°, ∠N = 30°, and ∠R = [180° – (80° + 30°)]
∠R = 180° – 110° = 70°
Now, in ∆ABC
∠A = ∠M – 80°, ∠B = ∠N = 30°
and ∠C = ∠R = 70°
∆ABC ~ ∆MNR (AAA or AA axiom)

Question 2.
Solution:
In the given figure, ∆ODC ~ ∆OBA and ∠BOC =115°, ∠CDO = 70° To find :
(i) ∠DOC
(ii) ∠DCO
(iii) ∠OAB
(iv) ∠OBA
∆ODC ~ ∆OBA
∠D = ∠B = 70°
∠C = ∠A
∠COD = ∠AOB
(i) But ∠DOC + ∠BOC = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ ∠DOC + 115°= 180°
⇒ ∠DOC = 180° – 115° = 65°
(ii) ∠DOC + ∠CDO + ∠DCO = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
⇒ 65° + 70° + ∠DCO = 180°
⇒ 135° + ∠DCO = 180°
⇒ ∠DCO = 180° – 135°
∠DCO = 45°
(iii) ∠AOB = ∠DOC = 65° (vertically opposite angles)
∠OAB = ∠DCO = 45° (∆ODC ~ ∆OBA)
(iv) ∠OBA = ∠CDO = 70° (∆ODC ~ ∆OBA)

∠AFD = ∠BFE (vertically opposite angles)
∆AFD ~ ∆BFE (AA axiom)
$$\frac { AF }{ EF }$$ = $$\frac { FD }{ FB }$$
By cross multiplication,
⇒ AF x FB = EF x FD
Hence proved.

∠APC = ∠BPD (Vertically opposite angles)
∠A = ∠D (Angles in the same segment)
∆PAC ~ ∆PDB (AA axiom)
$$\frac { PA }{ PD }$$ = $$\frac { PC }{ PB }$$
⇒ PA x PB = PC x PD
Hence proved.

AC and BD are joined. To prove :
(a) ∆PAC ~ ∆PDB
(b) PA . PB = PC . PD

Ext. ∠PAC = ∠D
Now, in ∆PDB and ∆PAC

∠PAC = ∠D (proved)
∆PDB ~ ∆PAC (AA axiom)
or ∆PAC ~ ∆PBD
$$\frac { PA }{ PD }$$ = $$\frac { PC }{ PB }$$

Proof: AB ⊥ BC and DQ ⊥ BC
AB || DQ
DP ⊥ AB
DP || BC
Now, AB or PB || DQ and BC or BQ || DP BQDP is a rectangle
BQ = DP and BP = DQ
Now, in right ∆BQD
∠1 + ∠2 = 90° …..(i)
Similarly in rt. ∆DQC,
∠3 + ∠4 = 90° (DQ ⊥ BC) …(ii)
and in right ∆BDC,
∠2 + ∠3 = 90° …(iii)
∠BDC = 90° (BD ⊥ AC)
From (i) and (ii),
∠1 = ∠3
and from (ii) and (iii),
∠2 = ∠4
Now, in ∆BQD and ∆DQC
∠1 = ∠3
∠2 = ∠4 (proved)
∆BQD ~ ∆DQC (AA axiom)
$$\frac { BQ }{ DQ }$$ = $$\frac { DQ }{ QC }$$
⇒ DQ² = BQ x QC
⇒ DQ² = DP x QC
(b) Similarly, we can prove that
∆PDA ~ ∆PBD
$$\frac { PD }{ PB }$$ = $$\frac { AP }{ DP }$$
⇒ DP² = BP x AP
⇒ DP² = DQ . AP (BP = DQ)
Hence proved.
