1) Draw a line segment of length 7.6 cm and divide it in 5: 8 ration. In addition, find the measure of two parts.

Solution:

1

Procedure for construction:

Solution:

3

Procedure for  construction :

  1. Draw a line segment BC with length 6 cm.
  2. With B as centre and keeping radius as 5 cm, draw an arc.
  3. With C as centre and keeping radius as 7 cm, draw another arc, intersecting the previously drawn arc at Point A.
  4. Join AB and AC. Then, ∆ABC is the required triangle.

4) Draw a triangle ABC with sides BC = 6 cm, AB = 5 cm and ∠ABC = 60°. Then construct a triangle whose sides are ¾ of the corresponding sides of ∆ABC.

Solution:

4

Procedure for construction:

(i)            Draw a triangle ABC with BC = 6 cm, AB = 5 cm and ∠ABC = 60°.

(ii)           Draw any ray BX making an acute angle with BC on the side opposite to the vertex X.

(iii)          Locate 4(the greater of 3 and 4 in ¾) points B1, B2, B3, B4 on BX so that BB1 = B1B2 = B2B3 = B3B4.

(iv)         Join B4C and draw a line through B3(the 3rd point, 3 being smaller of 3 and 4 in ¾) parallel to B4C to intersect BC at C’.

(v)          Draw a line through C’ parallel to the line CA to intersect BA at A’. Then ∆A’BC’ is the required triangle.

Justification of construction

∆ABC ~ ∆A’BC’ , Therefore,

ABAB=ACAC=BCBC

But, BCBC=BB3BB4=34

So, ABAB=ACAC=BCBC=34
5) Draw a triangle ABC with side BC = 7 cm, ∠B = 45°, ∠A = 105°. Then, construct a triangle whose sides are4/3 times the corresponding sides of ∆ABC.

(ii)           Draw any ray BX making an acute angle with BC on the side opposite to the vertex X.

(iii)          Locate 4(the greater of 3 and 4 in 4/3) points B1, B2, B3, B4 on BX so that 3 BB1 = B1 B2 = B2B3 = B3B4.

(iv)         Join NC’ and draw a line through B3(the 3rd point, 3 being smaller of 3 and 4 in 1) parallel to NC’ to intersect BC’ at C. 3

(v)          Draw a line through C’ parallel to the line CA to intersect BA at A’. Then A NBC’ is the required triangle.

 

6) Construct a triangle of isosceles type, whose base is 8 cm and height 4 cm and then another triangle whose sides are 1.5 times the corresponding sides of the isosceles triangle.
