**Practice Set 4.3 Page 56**

**1. Construct PQR, in which Q = 70°, R = 80° and PQ + QR + PR = 9.5 cm.**

**Solution : **

Let us draw a rough figure.

Explanation :

As shown in the figure, points T and S are taken on line QR such that,

QT = PQ, and PR = RS …(i)

TS = TQ+QR+RS

TS = PQ+QR+PR ….(ii) [from (i)]

Given PQ + QR + PR = 9.5 cm. …(iii)

TS = 9.5cm [from (ii) and (iii)]

Now in PTQ, TQ = QP [from (i)]

QPT = QTP = x˚ …(iv) [Isoceles triangle theorem]

In PQT, PQR is the exterior angle.

QPT+QTP = PQR [Remote interior angle theorem]

x+x = 70˚ [From (iv)]

2x = 70˚

x = 70/2 = 35˚

PTQ = 35 ˚

T = 35˚

Similarly, S = 40˚.

Now in PTS

T = 35°, S = 40° and TS = 9.5 cm

Hence, we can draw PTS .

Since, PQ = TQ,

Point Q lies on perpendicular bisector of seg PT.

Also, RP = RS

Point R lies on perpendicular bisector of seg PS.

Points Q and R can be located by drawing the perpendicular bisector of PT and PS respectively.

PQR can be drawn.

Steps of construction:

1. Draw seg TS of length 9.5 cm.

2. From point T draw ray making angle of 35°.

3. From point S draw ray making angle of 40°.

4. Mark the point of intersection of two rays as P.

5. Draw the perpendicular bisector of seg PT and seg PS intersecting seg TS in Q and R respectively.

Hence, PQR is the required triangle.

**2. Construct XYZ, in which Y = 58°, X = 46° and perimeter of triangle is 10.5 cm.**

**Solution:**

Let us draw a rough figure.

Explanation :

As shown in the figure, points W and V are taken on line YX such that,

YW = ZY and XV = ZX ……(i)

YW+YX+XV = WV [W-Y-X, Y-X-V]

ZY+YX+XZ = WV ……(ii) [From (i)]

Also,

ZY+YX +XZ = 10.5 cm …..(iii) [Given perimeter is 10.5 cm]

WV = 10.5 cm [From (ii) and (iii)]

In ZWY

YZ = YW [From (i)]

YZW = YWZ = x° …..(iv) [Isosceles triangle theorem]

In ZYW, ZYX is the exterior angle.

YZW +YWZ = ZYX [Remote interior angles theorem]

x+x = 58° [From (iv)]

2x = 58°

x = 58/2 = 29°

ZWY = 29°

YZW = 29°

Similarly, V = 23°

Now, in ZWV

W = 29°, V = 23° and

WV= 10.5 cm

Hence, we can draw ZWV .

Since, ZY = YW

Point Y lies on perpendicular bisector of seg ZW.

Also, ZX = XV

Point X lies on perpendicular bisector of seg ZV.

Points Y and X can be located by drawing the perpendicular bisector of ZW and ZV respectively.

XYZ can be drawn.

Steps of construction:

1. Draw seg WV of length 10.5 cm.

2. From point W draw ray making angle of 29°.

3. From point V draw ray making angle of 23°.

4. Mark the point of intersection of two rays as Z.

5. Draw the perpendicular bisector of seg WZ and seg VZ intersecting seg WV in Y and X respectively.

Hence, XYX is the required triangle.

**Problem Set 4 Page 56**

**1. Construct XYZ, such that XY + XZ = 10.3 cm, YZ = 4.9 cm, XYZ = 45°.**

**Solution:**

Let us draw a rough figure.

As shown in the rough figure draw segYZ = 4.9cm

Draw a ray YT that makes an angle of 45° with YZ.

Mark a point W on ray YT,

so that YW= 10.3 cm

Now,YX + XW = YW [Y-X-W]

YX + XW=10.3cm …..(i)

Given, XY + XZ = 10.3cm ……(ii)

YX + XW = XY + XZ [From (i) and (ii)]

XW = XZ

Point X is on the perpendicular bisector of seg WZ

The point of intersection of ray YT and perpendicular bisector of seg WZ is point X.

Steps of construction:

1. Draw seg YZ of length 4.9 cm.

2. Draw ray YT, so that ZYT = 45°.

3. Mark point W on ray YT such that *l*(YW) = 10.3 cm.

**2. Construct ABC, in which B = 70°, C = 60°, AB + BC + AC = 11.2 cm**

**Solution:**

Let us draw a rough figure.

As shown in the figure, take point D and E on line BC, so that

BD = AB and CE = AC ……(i)

BD+BC+CE = DE [D-B-C, B-C-E]

AB+BC+AC = DE …..(ii)

Given AB+BC+AC= 11.2 cm ….(iii)

DE = 11.2 cm [From (ii) and (iii)]

In ADB

AB = BD [From (i)]

BAD = BDA = x° ….(iv) [Isosceles triangle theorem]

In ABD, ABC is the exterior angle.

BAD +BDA = ABC [Remote interior angle theorem]

x+x = 70° [From (iv)]

2x = 70°

x = 70/2 = 35°

ADB = 35°

D = 35°

Similarly, E = 30°

Now, in ADE

D = 35°, E = 30° and DE = 11.2 cm

So, ADE can be drawn.

Since, AB = BD

Point B lies on perpendicular bisector of seg AD.

Also AC = CE

Point C lies on perpendicular bisector of seg AE.

Points B and C can be located by drawing the perpendicular bisector of AD and AE respectively.

So, ABC can be drawn.

Steps of construction:

1. Draw seg DE of length 11.2 cm.

2. From point D draw ray making angle of 35°.

3. From point E draw ray making angle of 30°.

4.Mark the point of intersection of two rays as A.

5. Draw the perpendicular bisector of seg DA and seg EA intersecting seg DE in B and C respectively.

6. Draw seg AB and seg AC.

ABC is the required triangle.

**3. The perimeter of a triangle is 14.4 cm and the ratio of lengths of its side is 2 : 3 : 4. Construct the triangle.**

**Solution:**

Let us draw a rough figure.

Let the common multiple be k

In ABC,

AB = 2k cm, AC = 3k cm, BC = 4k cm

Given the perimeter of triangle = 14.4 cm

AB+BC+AC = 14.4

2k+3k+4k = 9k

9k = 14.4

k = 14.4/9

k = 1.6

AB = 2k = 2×1.6 = 3.2 cm

AC = 3k = 3×1.6 = 4.8 cm

BC = 4k = 4×1.6 = 6.4 cm

Steps of construction:

1.Draw seg BD = 6.4 cm.

2.With B as centre, draw an arc of radius 3.2 cm.

3.With C as centre, draw an arc of radius 4.8 cm so that it intersects the previous arc at point A.

4.Join AB and AC.

So ABC is the required triangle.

**4. Construct PQR, in which PQ – PR = 2.4 cm, QR = 6.4 cm and PQR = 55°.**

**Solution:**

Let us draw a rough figure.

Explanation :

PQ-PR = 2.4 cm.

PQ > PR.

Draw seg QR = 6.4 cm.

We can draw the ray QT such that TQR = 55°.

We have to locate point S on ray QT.

Take point S on ray QT such that QS = 2.4 cm.

Now , Q-S-P and

QS = PQ-PS = 2.4 cm …(i)

Given PQ-PR = 2.4 cm. ..(ii)

PQ-PS = PQ-PR [From (i) and (ii)]

PS = PR

Point P is on the perpendicular bisector of seg RS.

Point P is the intersection of ray QT and the perpendicular bisector of seg RS.
