Series 1: playing of 14
In each of the given pairs of triangles, find which pair of triangles are similar. State the similarity criterion and write the similarity relation in symbolic form:
In an isosceles ∆ABC, the base AB is produced both ways in P and Q such that AP × BQ = AC2 and CE are the altitudes. Prove that ∆ACP ~ ∆BCQ.
In the given figure, ΔOAB ~ ΔOCD. If AB = 8cm, BO = 6.4cm, OC = 3.5cm and CD = 5cm, find (i) OA (ii) DO.
The corresponding sides of two similar triangles ABC and DEF are BC = 9.1cm and EF = 6.5cm. If the perimeter of ΔDEF is 25cm, find the perimeter of ΔABC.
