Answer 1 :


Question 2 : In the figure, ∆ACB ~ ∆APQ. If BC = 10 cm, PQ = 5 cm, BA = 6.5 cm and AP = 2.8 cm, find CA and AQ. Also, find the area (∆ACB) : area (∆APQ).

Answer 2 :


Question 3 : The areas of two similar triangles are 81 cm² and 49 cm² respectively. Find the ratio of their corresponding heights, what is the ratio of their corresponding medians ?

Answer 3 :

Areas of two similar triangles are 81 cm² and 49 cm²
The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles are proportion to the square of their corresponding altitudes and also squares of their corresponding medians
Ratio in their altitudes = √81 : √49 = 9 : 7
Similarly, the ratio in their medians = √81 : √49 = 9 : 7

Question 4 : The areas of two similar triangles are 169 cm² and 121 cm² respectively. If the longest side of the larger triangle is 26 cm, find the longest side of the smaller triangle.

Answer 4 :

Triangles are similar Area of larger triangle = 169 cm²
and area of the smaller triangle =121 cm²
Length of longest sides of the larger triangles = 26 cm
Let the length of longest side of the smaller triangle = x

Question 5 : The areas of two similar triangles are 25 cm² and 36 cm² respectively. If the altitude of the first triangle is 2.4 cm, find the corresponding altitude of the other.

Answer 5 :

Area of first triangle = 25 cm²
Area of second = 36 cm²
Altitude of the first triangle = 2.4 cm
Let altitude of the second triangle = x
The triangles are similar

Question 6 : The corresponding altitudes of two similar triangles are 6 cm and 9 cm respectively. Find the ratio of their areas.

Answer 6 :

Length of the corresponding altitude of two triangles are 6 cm and 9 cm
triangles are similar

Question 7 : ABC is a triangle in which ∠A = 90°, AN ⊥ BC, BC = 12 cm and AC = 5 cm. Find the ratio of the areas of the ∆ANC and ∆ABC.

Answer 7 :

In ∆ABC, ∠A = 90°
AN ⊥ BC
BC = 12 cm, AC = 5 cm

Question 8 :
In the figure, DE || BC
(i) If DE = 4 cm, BC = 6 cm and area (∆ADE) = 16 cm², find the area of ∆ABC.
(ii) If DE = 4 cm, BC = 8 cm and area of (∆ADE) = 25 cm², find the area of ∆ABC. (C.B.S.E. 1991)
(iii) If DE : BC = 3 : 5, calculate the ratio of the areas of ∆ADE and the trapezium BCED

Answer 8 :


Question 9 : In ∆ABC, D and E are the mid-points of AB and AC respectively. Find the ratio of the areas of ∆ADE and ∆ABC.

Answer 9 : In ∆ABC, D and E are the mid points of AB and AC respectively

Question 10 : The areas of two similar triangles are 100 cm² and 49 cm² respectively. If the altitude of the bigger triangle is 5 cm, find the corresponding altitude of the other. (C.B.S.E. 2002)
