Hello Kinshuk ! 

 

PQR is an Isosceles triangle so PE bisects QR 

QE = ER 
In ∆PQE => QE² = PQ² - PE² = 7² - PE² 

In ∆PDE , DE² = PD² - PE² = 5² - PE² 

Now,

QD × DR = (QE + DE) (QE - DE) 

=> QD × DR = ( QE)²- ( DE)² 

=> QD × DR = 7² -5² = 24
So they can only be 3 × 8 or 4 × 6. 

Hence 3+8 = 11, 
4+6 =10 
Option ( B )

Choose one answer.
a. 1/2
b. 13/16
c. 5/9
d. 1/3

Hello Abhi,

Please find the solution

A(ABC) = 1

A(ACF) = 1/3 and A(BCF) = 2/3.

A(BFE) = (1/3)*(2/3) = 2/9. So A(AFEC) = 7/9.

A(FBD = A(EBD) = 1/9.

A(EDC) = 2*A(EBD) = 2/9.

A(FDA) = (1/2)*A(FBD) = 1/18.

A(ADC) = A(AFEC) - A(EDC) - A(FDA) = (7/9) - (2/9) - (1/18) = 1/2

32 – (1+x)2 = 33-(2-x)2

1+x2+2x=4+x2-4x

6x = 3

x =1/2

AE = 3(sqrt3)/2

AD2 =(3(sqrt3)/2)2 + (1/2)2 =27/4 + 1/4 = 7

AD = sqrt7

In triangle ABC ,Produce a line from B to meet AC,meeting at D and From C to AB,meeting at E.let BD and CE meeet at X.let triangle BXE have area a,triangle BXC have area b and triangle CXD have area c.find the area of quadrilateral AEXD in terms of a,b,and c

a) bc(2a+b+c)/b^2-ac

b)ac(a+2b +c)/b^2-ac

c)abc/b^2-ac

d)ab(a+b +2c)/b^2-ac

ake a special case. Assume ABC is an equilateral triangle.

Let's assume D is the mid point on AC and E is the mid point on AB.

Now Area(BXE) = Area(CXD) = a = c

Then for this case Area(BXC) = b = 2a

And area of AEXD = 2a (it's very simple to calculate now)

Now, check all options:

  1. a) 2a*a(2a+2a+a)/4a^2-a^2 = 10a/3
  2. b) a*a(6a)/4a^2-a^2 = 2a

c)a*2a*a/4a^2-a^2 = 2a/3

  1. d) a*a(a+2a+2a)/4a^2-a^2 = 5a/3

Only b) matches. So, it is the answer.

 

Three altitudes of a triangle are 12cm, 20cm and 25 cm. Find the perimeter of the triangle.  How to solve this one?  

Hello Hemant! 

Ratio of sides :

1/12 : 1/20 : 1/15 => 5x : 3x : 4x

Area => 1/2 • 3x•4x = 1/2 • 12 • 5x

x = 5

Perimeter => 5x + 4x + 3x = 5 × ( 5+3+4) = 60 🙂

The perimeter of a right triangle is 12+8√3. The sum of the squares of the three sides is 294. Find the length of the hypotenuse.

0

Given that P2+ B2 + H2 = 294

and P2 + B2 = H2

So, H2 + H2 = 294

2H2 = 294

H2 = 147 = 49 x 3

H = 7 sqrt(3)

The sides of a right triangle are 3 4 5 

A point is taken on the hypotenuse at a distance of 2 cm from the vertex adjacent to the 4 side. Find the distance from this point to the vertex of the right triangle.

Question 28 sir

The alternate approach for the question 

The sides of a right triangle are 3 4 5 

A point is taken on the hypotenuse at a distance of 2 cm from the vertex adjacent to the 4 side. Find the distance from this point to the vertex of the right triangle.

Let's say MN intersect AX at O , 

MO = 1/2 BX 

 

∆AMO and ∆ABX are similar triangles so 

 

Area∆ AMO/ Area∆ABX = MO²/BX² = 1/4 

 

So if Area of ∆AMO = x ,then  Area ABX = 4x and Area MOXB = 4x - x = 3x ( shaded area ) 

 

 

Area of ∆ABC = 2 × Area ∆ABX = 8x 

 

Hence required ratio = 3x/ 8x = 3 : 8
