### SCERT Maharashtra Question Bank solutions for 10th Standard SSC Mathematics 2 Geometry Maharashtra State Board Chapter 2 Pythagoras Theorem Q.2 (A)

#### Complete the following activities [2 Marks]

From given figure, In ∆ABC, If AC = 12 cm. then AB =?

Activity: From given figure, In ∆ABC, ∠ABC = 90°, ∠ACB = 30°

∴ ∠BAC = `square`

∴ ∆ABC is 30° – 60° – 90° triangle

∴ In ∆ABC by property of 30° – 60° – 90° triangle.

∴ AB = `1/2` AC and `square` = `sqrt(3)/2` AC

∴ `square` = `1/2 xx 12` and BC = `sqrt(3)/2 xx 12`

∴ `square` = 6 and BC = `6sqrt(3)`

From given figure, In ∆ABC, AD ⊥ BC, then prove that AB^{2} + CD^{2} = BD^{2} + AC^{2} by completing activity.

Activity: From given figure, In ∆ACD, By pythagoras theorem

AC^{2} = AD^{2} + `square`

∴ AD^{2} = AC^{2} – CD^{2} ......(I)

Also, In ∆ABD, by pythagoras theorem,

AB^{2} = `square` + BD^{2}

∴ AD^{2} = AB^{2} – BD^{2} ......(II)

∴ `square` − BD^{2} = AC^{2} − `square`

∴ AB^{2} + CD^{2} = AC^{2}+ BD^{2}

From given figure, In ∆ABC, If ∠ABC = 90° ∠CAB=30°, AC = 14 then for finding value of AB and BC, complete the following activity.

Activity: In ∆ABC, If ∠ABC = 90°, ∠CAB=30°

∴ ∠BCA = `square`

By theorem of 30° – 60° – 90° triangle,

∴ `square = 1/2` AC and `square = sqrt(3)/2` AC

∴ BC = `1/2 xx square` and AB = `sqrt(3)/2 xx 14`

∴ BC = 7 and AB = `7sqrt(3)`

From given figure, in ∆MNK, if ∠MNK = 90°, ∠M = 45°, MK = 6, then for finding value of MN and KN, complete the following activity.

Activity:

In ∆MNK, ∠MNK = 90°, ∠M = 45° …...[Given]

∴ ∠K = `square` .....[Remaining angle of ∆MNK]

By theorem of 45° – 45° – 90° triangle,

∴ `square = 1/sqrt(2)` MK and `square = 1/sqrt(2)` MK

∴ MN = `1/sqrt(2) xx square` and KN = `1/sqrt(2) xx 6`

∴ MN = `3sqrt(2)` and KN = `3sqrt(2)`

A ladder 10 m long reaches a window 8 m above the ground. Find the distance of the foot of the ladder from the base of wall. Complete the given activity.

Activity: As shown in figure suppose

PR is the length of ladder = 10 m

At P – window, At Q – base of wall, At R – foot of ladder

∴ PQ = 8 m

∴ QR = ?

In ∆PQR, m∠PQR = 90°

By Pythagoras Theorem,

∴ PQ^{2} + `square` = PR^{2} .....(I)

Here, PR = 10, PQ = `square`

From equation (I)

8^{2} + QR^{2} = 10^{2}

QR^{2} = 10^{2} – 8^{2}

QR^{2} = 100 – 64

QR^{2} = `square`

QR = 6

∴ The distance of foot of the ladder from the base of wall is 6 m.

From the given figure, in ∆ABC, if AD ⊥ BC, ∠C = 45°, AC = `8sqrt(2)` , BD = 5, then for finding value of AD and BC, complete the following activity.

Activity: In ∆ADC, if ∠ADC = 90°, ∠C = 45° ......[Given]

∴ ∠DAC = `square` .....[Remaining angle of ∆ADC]

By theorem of 45° – 45° – 90° triangle,

∴ `square = 1/sqrt(2)` AC and `square = 1/sqrt(2)` AC

∴ AD =`1/sqrt(2) xx square` and DC = `1/sqrt(2) xx 8sqrt(2)`

∴ AD = 8 and DC = 8

∴ BC = BD +DC

= 5 + 8

= 13

Complete the following activity to find the length of hypotenuse of right angled triangle, if sides of right angle are 9 cm and 12 cm.

Activity: In ∆PQR, m∠PQR = 90°

By Pythagoras Theorem,

PQ^{2} + `square` = PR^{2} ......(I)

∴ PR^{2} = 9^{2} + 12^{2}

∴ PR^{2} = `square` + 144

∴ PR^{2} = `square`

∴ PR = 15

∴ Length of hypotenuse of triangle PQR is `square` cm.

From given figure, in ∆PQR, if ∠QPR = 90°, PM ⊥ QR, PM = 10, QM = 8, then for finding the value of QR, complete the following activity.

Activity: In ∆PQR, if ∠QPR = 90°, PM ⊥ QR, ......[Given]

In ∆PMQ, by Pythagoras Theorem,

∴ PM^{2} + `square` = PQ^{2} ......(I)

∴ PQ^{2} = 10^{2} + 8^{2}

∴ PQ^{2} = `square` + 64

∴ PQ^{2} = `square`

∴ PQ = `sqrt(164)`

Here, ∆QPR ~ ∆QMP ~ ∆PMR

∴ ∆QMP ~ ∆PMR

∴ `"PM"/"RM" = "QM"/"PM"`

∴ PM^{2} = RM × QM

∴ 10^{2} = RM × 8

RM = `100/8 = square`

And,

QR = QM + MR

QR = `square` + `25/2 = 41/2`

Find the diagonal of a rectangle whose length is 16 cm and area is 192 sq.cm. Complete the following activity.

Activity: As shown in figure LMNT is a reactangle.

∴ Area of rectangle = length × breadth

∴ Area of rectangle = `square` × breadth

∴ 192 = `square` × breadth

∴ Breadth = 12 cm

Also,

∠TLM = 90° ......[Each angle of reactangle is right angle]

In ∆TLM,

By Pythagoras theorem

∴ TM^{2} = TL^{2} + `square`

∴ TM^{2} = 12^{2} + `square`

∴ TM^{2} = 144 + `square`

∴ TM^{2} = 400

∴ TM = 20

In ∆LMN, l = 5, m = 13, n = 12 then complete the activity to show that whether the given triangle is right angled triangle or not.

*(l, m, n are opposite sides of ∠L, ∠M, ∠N respectively)

Activity: In ∆LMN, l = 5, m = 13, n = `square`

∴ l^{2} = `square`, m^{2} = 169, n^{2} = 144.

∴ l^{2} + n^{2} = 25 + 144 = `square`

∴ `square` + l^{2} = m^{2}

∴By Converse of Pythagoras theorem, ∆LMN is right angled triangle.
