- The line segment joining a vertex of a triangle to the mid point of its opposite side is called a median of the triangle. A triangle has 3 medians.
- The perpendicular line segment from a vertex of a triangle to its opposite side is called an altitude of the triangle. A triangle has 3 altitudes.
- An exterior angle of a triangle is formed, when a side of a triangle is produced. At each vertex, you have two ways of forming an exterior angle.
- The measure of any exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of its interior opposite angles.
- The total measure of the three angles of a triangle is 180°
- The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side (a +b > c)
- The difference between the lengths of any two sides is smaller than the length of the third side.
- In a right-angled triangle, the square on the hypotenuse = the sum of the squares on its legs.

(i) Altitude

(ii) Median

(iii) No

Draw rough sketches for the following:

(a) In ΔABC, BE is a median.

(b) In ΔPQR, PQ and PR are altitudes of the triangle.

(c) In ΔXYZ, YL is an altitude in the exterior of the triangle.

(a)

(b)

(c)

Verify by drawing a diagram if the median and altitude of an isosceles triangle can be same.

AD is the altitude in the Isosceles triangle and we can see that BD=DC, So it is also the median of the triangle

Find the value of the unknown exterior angle in the below figures

(i) $x=50+70 =120^0$

(ii) $x=45+65 =110^0$

(iii) $x= 30+40=70^0$

(iv) $x= 60+60 =120^0$

(v) $x=50+50 =100^0$

(vi) $x=30+60=90^0$

Find the value of the unknown interior angle x in the following figures:

(i) $115= x+50$

$x=115-50=65^0$

(ii) $100 + x=70$

$x=100-70=30^0$

(iii) $x+90=125$

$x=35^0$

(iv) $x+60=120$

$x=60^0$

(v) $x+30=80$

$x=50^0$

(vi) $x+35=75$

$x=40^0$

We know that

Sum of interior opposite angles = Exterior angle

then

x+ 25=70

x=45°

We know that

Sum of interior opposite angles = Exterior angle

then

Exterior angle=60 + 80 =140deg;

We know that

Sum of interior opposite angles = Exterior angle

Here

50=50+50.

Which is not true.So these angles are not possible in triangle

Find the value of the unknown x in the following diagrams:

(i) x + 50° + 60° = 180°

(ii) x + 90° + 30° = 180°

x +120° = 180°

(iii) x+30° +110° = 180°

(iv) 50° +

50° +2x = 180°

2x = 180°- 50° = 130°

x=65

(v) x + x +

3x = 180°

x=60

(vi)

3x = 180° – 90° = 90

x=30

Find the values of the unknown’s

(i) y + 120° = 180° (Linear pair)

y = 180° — 120

x+ y + 50° = 180° (Angle sum property)

x+ 60° + 50° = 180°

x=70

(ii) y = 80° (Vertically opposite angles)

y +

80° + x + 50° = 180°

x+ 130

x=50

(iii) y + 50° + 60° = 180° (Angle sum property}

y = 180° — 60° – 50° = 70

x+ y = 180 (Linear pair)

x= 180° — y = 180° — 70° = 110°

iv) x=60

Now

x+y+30 =180

60+y+30=180

y=90

v) x=90

Now,

x+x+y=180

2x+90=180

X=45

vi)

y=x ( Vertically opposite angles)

Other two angles are also angle x as vertically opposite angles

y+x+x=180

x+x+x=180

3x=180

x=60

$ x+ 30 +80=180$

x=70°

$x+x+80=180$

x=50°

$x + 2x + x=180$

x=45

So angles are 45°,90°,45°

False as then Angle sum property will be voilated

False as then Angle sum property will be voilated

True

False as then Angle sum property will be voilated

True

False as then Angle sum property will be voilated

vii.

This is isosceles triangle

$2x=110$

x=55°

viii.

This is isosceles triangle

And from vertically opposite angle

x=30°

a.

This is isosceles triangle

From linear pair

$y + 120 =180$

y=60°

Now

exterior angle=sum of opposite ineterior angles

120=x+60

x=60°

b. This is isosceles right angle triangle

$x + x + 90=180$

x=45°

Now

exterior angle=sum of opposite ineterior angles

y=45 + 90=135°

c. This is isosceles triangle

So ,another angle is also x

Now from vertically opposite angle, third angle =92°

Now from angle property

$x +x +92 =180$

x=44°

Now

exterior angle=sum of opposite ineterior angles

y= 44 + 92 = 136°

Is it possible to have a triangle with the following sides?

(i) 2 cm, 3 cm, 5 cm

(ii) 3 cm, 6 cm, 7 cm

(iii) 6 cm, 3 cm, 2 cm

(i) Given that, the sides of the triangle are 2 cm, 3 cm, 5 cm. It can be observed that,

2 + 3 = 5 cm

However, 5 cm = 5 cm

Hence, this triangle is not possible.

(ii) Given that, the sides of the triangle are 3 cm, 6 cm, 7 cm. Here, 3 + 9 =12 cm > 7 cm

6 + 7 = 13 cm > 3 cm

3 + 7 = 10 cm > 6 cm

Hence, this triangle is possible.

(iii) Given that, the sides of the triangle are 6 cm, 3 cm, 2 cm.

Here, 6 + 3 = 9 cm > 2 cm

However, 3 + 2 = 5 cm < 6 cm

Hence, this triangle is not possible.

(iii) In DOPR

Sum of two sides > third side

OP + OR > PR

AM is a median of a triangle ABC.

Is AB + BC + CA > 2 AM?

(Consider the sides of triangles DABM and DAMC.)

In a triangle, the sum of the lengths of either two sides is always greater than the third

side.

In DABM,

AB + BM > AM (1)

Similarly, in DACM,

AC + CM > AM (ii)

Adding equation (1) and (ii),

AB + BM + MC + AC > AM + AM

AB + BC + AC > 2AM

ABCD is a quadrilateral.

Is AB + BC + CD + DA > AC + BD?

Considering DABC,

AB + BC > CA (i)

In DBCD,

BC + CD > DB (ii)

In DCDA,

CD + DA > AC (iii)

In DDAB,

DA + AB > DB (iv)

Adding equations (I), (//), (iii), and (iv), we obtain

AB + BC + BC + CD + CD + DA + DA + AB > AC + BD + AC + BD

2AB + 2BC + 2CD +2DA > 2AC + 2BD

AB + BC + CD + DA > AC + BD

ABCD is quadrilateral.

Is AB + BC + CD + DA < 2 (AC + BD)?

Let O be the point of intersection of diagonals

In a triangle, the sum of the lengths of either two sides is always greater than the third

side.

OA +OB > AB

In DOBC

OB + OC > BC

In DOCD

OC + OD > CD

In DOAD

OA + OD > AD

Adding all these we get

OA + OB + OB +OC + OC +OD + OA +OD > AB + BC + CD + DA

2( AC + BD) > AB + BC + CD + DA

The lengths of two sides of a triangle are 12 cm and 15 cm. Between what two measures should the length of the third side fall?

There are two things for the triangle

(i) sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side.

(ii) difference between the length of any two sides of a triangle is smaller than the length of the third side.

Let x be the third side

So, from first point

12+15 > x

Or x < 27 cm

Now from second point

15-12 < x

Or x > 3

So x lies between 3 cm and 27 cm

Which of the following can be the sides of a right triangle?

(i) 2.5 cm,6.5 cm, 6 cm.

(ii) 2 cm, 2 cm, 5 cm.

(iii) 1.5 cm, 2cm, 2.5 cm.

In the case of right-angled triangles, identify the right angles.

i) 2.5cm,6.5cm,6cm

We see that

(2.5)

Therefore, the given lengths can be the sides of a right triangle. Also, the angle between the lengths, 2.5 cm and 6 cm is a right angle

ii) 2 cm, 2 cm, 5 cm.

Here 2+ 2= 4 < 5 , So sum of two sides less than third side. So this is not a triangle

iii) 1.5 cm, 2cm, 2.5 cm

We see that

(1.5)

Therefore, the given lengths can be the sides of a right triangle. Also, the angle between the lengths, 1.5 cm and 2 cm is a right angle

A tree is broken at a height of 5 m from the ground and its top touches the ground at 12 m from the base of the tree. Find the original height of the tree

Let the tree be broken at point A

Then tree length = AB + AC

In DABC ,right angle at B

AB

AC

AC=13 m

So original length of tree= 5+13 =18 m

Angles Q and R of a DPQR are 25º and 65º.

Write which of the following is true:

(i) PQ

(ii) PQ

(iii) RP

From angle property of triangle

Angle P = 180 -25-65=90

So D PQR is right angle at P

So

Let ABCD is the rectangle as shown above

Now DABC is right angle triangle, So

BC

AB

AB=9 cm

So perimeter of rectangle

Let ABCD is the rhombus and the diagonals bisect at right angles

In triangle OAD

$AD = 17 cm$

So , perimeter of rhombus = 4 X AD= 68 cm
