Question

In the given figure, $$AB\parallel CD$$ and a transversal $$t$$ cuts them at $$E$$ and $$F$$ respectively. If $$EG$$ and $$FG$$ are the bisectors of $$\angle BEF$$ and $$\angle EFD$$ respectively, prove that $$\angle EGF={90}^{o}$$

Solution

We know that $$AB\parallel CD$$ and $$t$$ is a tranversal cutting at points $$E$$ and $$F$$From the figure we know that $$\angle BEF$$ and $$\angle DFE$$ are interior anglesSo we get$$\angle BEF+\angle DFE={ 180 }^{ o }$$Dividing teh entire equation by 2 we get$$\dfrac{1}{2}\angle BEF+\dfrac{1}{2}\angle DFE={90}^{o}$$According to the figure the above equation can further be written as$$\angle GEF+\angle GFE={90}^{o}...(i)$$According to the $$\triangle GEF$$We can write$$\angle GEF+\angle GFE+\angle EGF={ 180 }^{ o }$$Based on equation (i) we get$${90}^{o}+\angle EGF={ 180 }^{ o }$$$$\angle EGF={90}^{o}$$Therefore it is proved that $$\angle EGF={90}^{o}$$MathematicsRS AgarwalStandard IX
