Question 1.
From the figure given, prove that ∆ABC ~ ∆DEF.
Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 1 Chapter 4 Geometry Ex 4.1 1
Solution:
From the ∆ABC,
AB = AC
It is an isosceles triangle
Angles opposite to equal sides are equal
∴ ∠B = ∠C = 65°
∴ ∠B + ∠C = 65° + 65°
= 130°
We know that .sum of three angles is a triangle = 180°
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
∠A + 130° = 180°
∠A = 180°-130°
∠A = 50°
From ∆DEF, ∠D = 50°
∴ Sum of Remaining angles = 180° – 50° = 130°
DE = FD
∴ ∠D = ∠F
From ∆ABC and ∆DEF
Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 1 Chapter 4 Geometry Ex 4.1 2
∠A = ∠D = 50°
∠B = ∠E = 65°
∠C = ∠F = 65°
∴ By AAA criteria ∆DEF ~ ∆ABC

Question 2.

Question 4.
In the given figure, if ∆EAT ~ ∆BUN find the measure of all angles.
Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 1 Chapter 4 Geometry Ex 4.1 11
Solution:
Given ∆EAT ≡ ∆BUN
∴ Corresponding angles are equal
∴ ∠E = ∠B ..(1)
∠A = ∠U ..(2)
∠T = ∠N ..(3)
∠E = x°
∠A = 2x°
Sum of three angles of a triangle = 180°
In ∆EAT, x + 2x + ∠T = 180°
∠T = 180° – (x° + 2x° )
∠T = 180°- 3x° …(4)
Also in ∆BUN
(x + 40)° + + ∠U = 180°
x + 40° + x + ∠U = 180°
2x° + 40° + ∠U = 180°
∠U = 180° – 2x – 40°
= 140° – 2x°
Now by (2)
∠A = ∠U
2x = 140° – 2x
2x + 2x = 140°
4x = 140°
Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 1 Chapter 4 Geometry Ex 4.1 12
∠A = 2x° = 2 × 35° = 70°
∠N = x + 40°
= 35° + 40° = 75°
∴ ∠T = ∠N = 75°
∠E = ∠B = 35°
∠A = ∠U = 70°

Question 11.
Is ∆PRQ ≡ ∆QSP ? Why ?
Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 1 Chapter 4 Geometry Ex 4.1 22
Solution:
In ∠PRQ = ∠PSQ = 90° given
PR = QS = 3 cm given
PQ = PQ = 5 cm common
It satisfies RHS criteria
∴ ∆PRQ congruent to ∆QSP.
