CD = BE (c.p.c.t.)

Hence, BE = CD.

AD, BD and CD are joined.

To prove : AD bisects ∠A and ∠D.

AB = AC (given)

BD = CD (given)

∆ABD ≅ ∆CAD (SSS condition)

∠BAD = ∠CAD (c.p.c.t.)

and ∠BDA = ∠CDA (c.p.c.t.)

Hence AD is the bisector of ∠A and Z D.

Hence proved.

**Question 14.**

**Solution:**

Two triangles whose corresponding angles are equal, it is not necessarily that they should be congruent. It is possible if atleast one side must be equal. Below given a pair of triangles whose angles are equal but these are not congruent.

**Question 15.**

**Solution:**

In two triangles, if two sides and and included angle of the one equal to the corresponding two sides and included angle, then the two triangles are congruent.

If another angle except included angles are equal to each other and two sides are also equal these are not congruent. In the above figures, in ∆ABC and ∆PQR, two corresponding sides and one angle are equal, but these are not congruent.

**Question 16.**

**Solution:**

In ∆ABC,

Area = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x BC x AL = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x 5 x 4 = 10 cm²

and in ∆PQR

Area = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x QR x PR = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x 5 x 4 = 10 cm²

In these triangles

Areas of both triangles are equal but are not congruent to each other

**Question 17.**

**Solution:**

(i) Two line segments are congruent if they have the same length.

(ii) Two angles are congruent if they have equal measure.

(iii) Two squares are congruent if they have same side length.

(iv) Two circles are congruent if they have equal radius.

(v) Two rectangles are congruent if they have the same length and same breadth.

(vi) Two triangles are congruent if they have all parts equal.

**Question 18.**

**Solution:**

(i) False : Only those squares are congruent which have the same side.

(ii) True :

(iii) False : It is not necessarily, that those figures which have equal areas, must be congruent.

(iv) False : It is not necessarily that those triangles whose areas are equal, must be congruent.

(v) False : It is not necessarily that such triangles must be congruent.

(vi) True : It two angles and one side of a triangle are equal to the corresponding two angles and one side of the other are equal they are congruent.

(vii) False : Only three angles of one are equal the three angles of is not necessarily that these must be congruent.

(viii) True.

(ix) False : Only hypotenuse and one right angle of the one are equal to the hypotenuse and one right angles of the other, the triangles are not necessarily congruent, one side except them, must be equal.

(x) True : It is the definition of congruency of two triangles.
