Exercise 11.1

1. Draw a line segment of length $7.6$ cm and divide it in the ratio $5:8$. Measure the two parts. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: To divide a line segment of length $7.6$ cm in the ratio of $5:8$ follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw line segment $AB$ of $7.6$ 

Step 2: Draw a ray $AX$ making an acute angle with line segment $AB$. 

Step 3: Mark $13$ points \[{{A}_{1}},{{A}_{2}},...,{{A}_{13}}\] on $AX$such that the length of each segment is equal.

Step 4: Join $B$ with ${{A}_{13}}$.

Step 5: Draw a line parallel to \[B{{A}_{13}}\] passing through \[{{A}_{5}}\] and intersecting $AB$ at point $C$.

The point $C$ divides the line segment $AB$ in the ratio of $5:8$. The length of required segments are: $AC=2.9cm$ and $BC=4.7cm$.

Justification

By construction, we have $\vartriangle A{{A}_{5}}C,\vartriangle AB{{A}_{13}}$ with ${{A}_{5}}C\parallel B{{A}_{13}}$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, 

$\dfrac{AC}{BC}=\dfrac{A{{A}_{5}}}{{{A}_{5}}{{A}_{13}}}$

Since the distance between ${{A}_{i}},{{A}_{i+1}}$ are equal. Therefore, 

$\dfrac{A{{A}_{5}}}{{{A}_{5}}{{A}_{13}}}=\dfrac{5}{13-5}=\dfrac{5}{8}$

Hence, the point $C$ divides the line segment $AB$ in the ratio of $5:8$.

2. Construct a triangle of sides $4$ cm, $5$ cm and $6$ cm and then a triangle similar to it whose sides are $\dfrac{2}{3}$ of the corresponding sides of the first triangle. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: To construct the required triangle, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw a line segment \[\text{AB}\] of length $4$ cm. 

Step 2: Now, take point $A$ as a centre and draw an arc of $5$ cm radius.

Step 3: Now, take point $B$ as a centre and draw an arc of $6$ cm radius.

Step 4: The point at which the arcs from step 3 and 2 meet. Name it as \[C\]. \[\vartriangle ABC\] is the required triangle.

Step 5: Draw a ray $AX$ on the opposite side of vertex $C$ making an acute angle with line $AB$.

Step 6: Mark $3$ points \[{{A}_{1}},{{A}_{2}},{{A}_{3}}\] on $AX$ such that the length of each segment is equal.

Step 7: Join $B$ with ${{A}_{3}}$.

Step 8: Draw a line parallel to \[B{{A}_{3}}\] passing through \[{{A}_{2}}\] and intersecting $AB$ at point $B'$.

Step 9: Draw a line parallel to \[BC\] passing through \[B'\] and intersecting $AC$ at point $C'$.

\[\vartriangle AB'C'\] is the required triangle.

Justification

By construction, we have $\vartriangle ABC,\vartriangle AB'C'$ with $BC\parallel B'C'$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle ABC=\angle AB'C'$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle ABC\sim \vartriangle AB'C'$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{B'C'}{BC}=\dfrac{AC'}{AC}$  ….. (1)

Consider triangles, $\vartriangle A{{A}_{2}}B',\vartriangle A{{A}_{3}}B$ with ${{A}_{2}}B'\parallel {{A}_{3}}B$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle A{{A}_{2}}B'=\angle A{{A}_{3}}B$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle A{{A}_{2}}B'\sim \vartriangle A{{A}_{3}}B$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{A{{A}_{2}}}{A{{A}_{3}}}=\dfrac{2}{3}$  ….. (2)

Hence from (1) and (2), 

$\Rightarrow AB'=\dfrac{2}{3}AB,\text{ }AC'=\dfrac{2}{3}AC\text{ and }B'C'=\dfrac{2}{3}BC$

3. Construct a triangle with sides $5$ cm, $6$ cm and $7$ cm and then another triangle whose sides are $\dfrac{7}{5}$ of the corresponding sides of the first triangle. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: To construct the required triangle, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw a line segment \[\text{AB}\] of length $5$ cm and extend it from $B$ end. 

Step 2: Now, take point $A$ as a centre and draw an arc of $6$ cm radius.

Step 3: Now, take point $B$ as a centre and draw an arc of $7$ cm radius.

Step 4: The point at which the arcs from step 3 and 2 meet. Name it as \[C\]. \[\vartriangle ABC\] is the required triangle.

Step 5: Draw a ray $AX$ on the opposite side of vertex $C$ making an acute angle with line $AB$.

Step 6: Mark $7$ points \[{{A}_{1}},{{A}_{2}},...,{{A}_{7}}\] on $AX$such that the length of each segment is equal.

Step 7: Join $B$ with ${{A}_{5}}$.

Step 8: Draw a line parallel to \[B{{A}_{5}}\] passing through \[{{A}_{7}}\] and intersecting extended $AB$ at point $B'$.

Step 9: Draw a line parallel to \[BC\] passing through \[B'\] and intersecting extended $AC$ at point $C'$.

\[\vartriangle AB'C'\] is the required triangle.

Justification

By construction, we have $\vartriangle ABC,\vartriangle AB'C'$ with $BC\parallel B'C'$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle ABC=\angle AB'C'$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle ABC\sim \vartriangle AB'C'$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{B'C'}{BC}=\dfrac{AC'}{AC}$  ….. (1)

Consider triangles, $\vartriangle A{{A}_{7}}B',\vartriangle A{{A}_{5}}B$ with ${{A}_{7}}B'\parallel {{A}_{5}}B$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle A{{A}_{7}}B'=\angle A{{A}_{5}}B$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle A{{A}_{7}}B'\sim \vartriangle A{{A}_{5}}B$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{A{{A}_{7}}}{A{{A}_{5}}}=\dfrac{7}{5}$  ….. (2)

Hence from (1) and (2), 

$\Rightarrow AB'=\dfrac{7}{5}AB,\text{ }AC'=\dfrac{7}{5}AC\text{ and }B'C'=\dfrac{7}{5}BC$

4. Construct an isosceles triangle whose base is $8$ cm and altitude $4$ cm and then another triangle whose side are $1\dfrac{1}{2}$ times the corresponding sides of the isosceles triangle. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: To construct the required triangle, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw a line segment \[\text{AB}\] of length $8$ cm and extend it from $B$ end. 

Step 2: Now, take point $A$ and $B$ as centres and draw arcs of $6$ cm radius. The point at which the arcs meet is $O,O'$. Join the line $OO'$.  

Step 3: Let the line $OO'$ meet the line $AB$ at $D$.  Now, take point $D$ as centre and draw an arc of $4$ cm radius.

Step 4: Let the arc cuts the line $OO'$ at point \[C\]. \[\vartriangle ABC\] is the required isosceles triangle.

Step 5: Draw a ray $AX$ on the opposite side of vertex $C$ making an acute angle with line $AB$.

Step 6: Mark $3$ points \[{{A}_{1}},{{A}_{2}},{{A}_{3}}\] on $AX$such that the length of each segment is equal.

Step 7: Join $B$ with ${{A}_{2}}$.

Step 8: Draw a line parallel to \[B{{A}_{2}}\] passing through \[{{A}_{3}}\] and intersecting extended $AB$ at point $B'$.

Step 9: Draw a line parallel to \[BC\] passing through \[B'\] and intersecting extended $AC$ at point $C'$.

\[\vartriangle AB'C'\] is the required triangle.

Justification

By construction, we have $\vartriangle ABC,\vartriangle AB'C'$ with $BC\parallel B'C'$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle ABC=\angle AB'C'$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle ABC\sim \vartriangle AB'C'$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{B'C'}{BC}=\dfrac{AC'}{AC}$  ….. (1)

Consider triangles, $\vartriangle A{{A}_{3}}B',\vartriangle A{{A}_{2}}B$ with ${{A}_{3}}B'\parallel {{A}_{2}}B$ and vertex $A$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle A{{A}_{3}}B'=\angle A{{A}_{2}}B$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle A{{A}_{3}}B'\sim \vartriangle A{{A}_{2}}B$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{A{{A}_{3}}}{A{{A}_{2}}}=\dfrac{3}{2}$  ….. (2)

Hence from (1) and (2), 

$\Rightarrow AB'=\dfrac{3}{2}AB,\text{ }AC'=\dfrac{3}{2}AC\text{ and }B'C'=\dfrac{3}{2}BC$

5. Draw a triangle \[\mathbf{ABC}\] with side $BC=6$ cm, \[\mathbf{AB}=\mathbf{5}\] cm and \[\angle ABC={{60}^{\circ }}\] . Then construct a triangle whose sides are $\dfrac{3}{4}$ of the corresponding sides of the triangle \[\mathbf{ABC}\]. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: To construct the required triangle, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw a line segment \[\text{BC}\] of length $6$ cm. 

Step 2: Now, take point $B$ as centre and draw an arc of $5$ cm radius making an angle of ${{60}^{\circ }}$ with $BC$. Let the point be known as $A$ 

Step 3: Join $AC$. \[\vartriangle ABC\] is the required triangle.

Step 4: Draw a ray $BX$ on the opposite side of vertex $A$ making an acute angle with line $BC$.

Step 5: Mark $4$ points \[{{B}_{1}},{{B}_{2}},{{B}_{3}},{{B}_{4}}\] on $BX$such that the length of each segment is equal.

Step 6: Join $C$ with ${{B}_{4}}$.

Step 7: Draw a line parallel to \[C{{B}_{4}}\] passing through \[{{B}_{3}}\] and intersecting $BC$ at point $C'$.

Step 8: Draw a line parallel to \[AC\] passing through \[C'\] and intersecting $AB$ at point $B'$.

Justification

By construction, we have $\vartriangle ABC,\vartriangle AB'C'$ with $AC\parallel A'C'$ and vertex $B$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle BAC=\angle BA'C'$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle ABC\sim \vartriangle AB'C'$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{B'C'}{BC}=\dfrac{AC'}{AC}$  ….. (1)

Consider triangles, $\vartriangle B{{B}_{3}}C',\vartriangle B{{B}_{4}}C$ with ${{B}_{4}}C\parallel {{B}_{3}}C'$ and vertex $B$ common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle B{{B}_{4}}C=\angle B{{B}_{3}}C'$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle B{{B}_{3}}C'\sim \vartriangle B{{B}_{4}}C$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{BC'}{BC}=\dfrac{B{{B}_{3}}}{B{{B}_{4}}}=\dfrac{3}{4}$  ….. (2)

Hence from (1) and (2), 

$\Rightarrow AB'=\dfrac{3}{4}AB,\text{ }AC'=\dfrac{3}{4}AC\text{ and }B'C'=\dfrac{3}{4}BC$

6. Draw a triangle \[\mathbf{ABC}\] with side \[\mathbf{BC}=\mathbf{7}\] cm,  \[\angle B={{45}^{\circ }}\], \[\angle A={{105}^{\circ }}\]. Then, construct a triangle whose sides are $\dfrac{4}{3}$ times the corresponding side of $\vartriangle ABC$. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: We know that sum of interior angles of a triangle is ${{180}^{\circ }}$. Therefore, 

$\angle A+\angle B+\angle C={{180}^{\circ }}$ 

$\Rightarrow {{105}^{\circ }}+{{45}^{\circ }}+\angle C={{180}^{\circ }}$

\[\therefore \angle C={{30}^{\circ }}\]

To construct the required triangle, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw a line segment \[\text{BC}\] of length $7$ cm and extend it from end $C$. 

Step 2: Now, take point $B$ as centre and draw an arc making an angle of ${{45}^{\circ }}$ with $BC$. 

Step 3: Now, take point $C$ as centre and draw an arc making an angle of ${{30}^{\circ }}$ with $BC$.  

Step 4: Let the point where the arcs from step 2 and 3 meet be known as $A$. \[\vartriangle ABC\] is the required triangle.

Step 5: Draw a ray $BX$ on the opposite side of vertex $A$ making an acute angle with line $BC$.

Step 6: Mark $4$ points \[{{B}_{1}},{{B}_{2}},{{B}_{3}},{{B}_{4}}\] on $BX$such that the length of each segment is equal.

Step 7: Join $C$ with ${{B}_{3}}$.

Step 8: Draw a line parallel to \[C{{B}_{3}}\] passing through \[{{B}_{4}}\] and intersecting $BC$ at point $C'$.

Step 9: Draw a line parallel to \[AC\] passing through \[C'\] and intersecting $AB$ at point $B'$.

\[\vartriangle AB'C'\] is the required triangle.

Justification

By construction, we have $\vartriangle ABC,\vartriangle AB'C'$ with $AC\parallel A'C'$ and vertex $B$  common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle BAC=\angle BA'C'$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle ABC\sim \vartriangle AB'C'$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{AB'}{AB}=\dfrac{B'C'}{BC}=\dfrac{AC'}{AC}$  ….. (1)

Consider triangles, $\vartriangle B{{B}_{3}}C,\vartriangle B{{B}_{4}}C'$ with ${{B}_{4}}C'\parallel {{B}_{3}}C$ and vertex $B$ common. Therefore, by corresponding angle property, $\angle B{{B}_{4}}C'=\angle B{{B}_{3}}C$

Hence, by  $AA$ similarity criteria, $\vartriangle B{{B}_{3}}C\sim \vartriangle B{{B}_{4}}C'$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{BC'}{BC}=\dfrac{B{{B}_{4}}}{B{{B}_{3}}}=\dfrac{4}{3}$  ….. (2)

Hence from (1) and (2), 

$\Rightarrow AB'=\dfrac{4}{3}AB,\text{ }AC'=\dfrac{4}{3}AC\text{ and }B'C'=\dfrac{4}{3}BC$

7. Draw a right triangle in which the sides (other than hypotenuse) are of lengths $4$ cm and $3$ cm. then construct another triangle whose sides are $\dfrac{5}{3}$ times the corresponding sides of the given triangle. Give the justification of the construction.

Ans: To construct the required triangle, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Draw a line segment \[\text{AB}\] of length $4$ cm and extend it from $B$ end. 

Step 2: Now, take point $A$ as centres and draw an arc of $3$ cm radius and making an angle of ${{90}^{\circ }}$ with $AB$. Let the point be known as $C$. 

Step 3: Join $BC$. \[\vartriangle ABC\] is the required isosceles triangle.
