Answer:

Perimeter is 15 cm.

So length + breadth = 7.5 cm

**Parallel Lines 9th Standard Kerala Syllabus Question 4.**

In the picture below, the diagonals of the trapezium ABCD intersect at P. Prove that PA × PD = PB × PC.

Answer:

Sides AB, CD are parallel.

Draw EF parallel to AB and passing through P.

Now lines AB, EF and DC are parallel.

These lines cut the lines AC and BD in the same ratio.

So, PA : PC = PB : PD

i.e., PA/PC=PB/PD

From this by cross multiplication we get PA × PD = PC × PB

**Parallel Lines Class 9 Kerala Syllabus Question 1.**

In the picture, the perpendicular is drawn from the midpoint of the hypotenuse of a right triangle to the base. Calculate the length of the third side of the large right triangle and the lengths of all three sides of small right triangle.

Answer:

AC = 10 cm

∴ AM = 5 cm

MN, CB are perpendicular to AB

MN, CB are parallel lines.

∴ MN divides AB and AC in the same ratio.

∴ AN = BN = 4cm

M is the midpoint of the AC. N is the midpoint of AB.

The length of the line joining the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is half the length of the third side. So MN is half of BC.

∴ MN = 3cm

**Parallel Lines Chapter Class 9 Kerala Syllabus Question 2.**

Draw a right triangle and the perpendicular from the midpoint of the hypotenuse to the base.

i. Prove that this perpendicular is half the perpendicular side of the large triangle.

ii. Prove that perpendicular bisects the bottom side of the larger triangle.

iii. Prove that in the large triangle the distances from the mid point of the hypotenuse to all the vertices are equal.

iv. Prove that the circumcentre of a right triangle is the mid point of its hypotenuse.

Answer:

MN is perpendicular to AB.

MN and CB are parallel lines. MN divides AC and AB in the same ratio.

i. AM = 1/2AC, AN = 1/2AB

∴ MN = 1/2CB

ii. We get two right triangles of same base and perpendicular. So their hypotenuses are also equal.

∴ MA = MC = MB

AN = NB

iii. ∠ANM = ∠BNM = 90°

MN = MN

ΔANM ≅ ΔBNM

AM = MB …….(1)

M is the midpoint of AC

AM = MC …….(2)

(1) = (2) ⇒ AM = MB = MC

iv. The points A, B and C are at same distance from M. So a circle can be drawn with M as centre and pass through there three points. So this circle is the circum circle of ΔABC.

**9th Standard Maths Notes Kerala Syllabus Question 3.**

In the parallelogram ABCD, the line drawn through a point P on AB, parallel to BC, meets AC at Q. The line through Q, parallel to AB meets AD at R.

Prove that AP/PB=AR/RD

Answer:

In ΔABC, RQ the parallel line of BC, divides AB and BC in the same ratio When we consider the relation

AR/RD=AQ/QC,AP/PB=AQ/AC=AR/RD

AR/RD=AQ/QC

AP/PB=AQ/AC=AR/RD

∴ AP/PB=AR/RD

**9th Maths Kerala Syllabus Question 4.**

In the picture below, two vertices of a parallelogram are joined to the mid points of two sides. Prove that these lines divide the diagonal in the picture into three equal parts.

In the parallelogram ABCD, AB = CD and AB parallel CD.

P is the mid point of AB and Q is the midpoint of DC.

Since P and Q are the midpoints of AB and CD respectively.

PB = ½AB

DQ = ½CD = ½AB

∴ PB = DQ

i.e., PB = DQ and PB parallel DQ.

∴ PBQD is a parallelogram.

Since the parallel lines PD and BQ cut AB into equal parts, they cut AY also into equal parts.

AX = XY

The parallel lines PD and BQ cut CD into equal parts. So they cut CX also into equal parts.

YC = XY

∴ AX = XY = YC

**9th Standard Maths Kerala Syllabus Question 5.**

Prove that the quadrilateral formed by joining the mid points of a quadrilateral is a parallelogram. What if the original quadrilateral is a rectangle? What if it is a rhombus?

Answer:

P, Q, R and S are the midpoints of the sides of the quadrilateral ABCD. Draw the diagonals AC and BD.

The length of the line joining the mid-points of two sides of a trianglle is half the length of the third side.

In ΔABC, PQ = ½AC

In ΔADC, SR = ½AC

∴ PQ = SR

In ΔABD, PS = ½BD

In ΔBCD, QR = ½BD

∴ PS = QR

In quadrilateral PQRS, both pairs of opposite sides are equal. So it is a parallelogram.

PQ = ½AC, RS = ½AC

∴ RS = PQ = ½AC

PS = ½BD, QR = ½BD

∴ PS = QR = ½BD = ½AC

∴ PQ = RS = PS = QR

All sides of the quadrilateral PQRS are equal. So it is a rhombus.

Since ABCD is a rhombus. AC perpendicular to BD.

PQ and SP are perpendicular, i.e., ∠SPQ = 90°

One angle of the parallelogram PQRS is 90° and therefore it is a rectangle.

**9 Maths Kerala Syllabus Question 4.**

In ΔABC, the point P is on AB such that the length of AP is double the length of PB. The line through P parallel to BC meets AC at Q and the length of AQ is 1 cm more than that of QC, what is the length of AC?

Answer:

AP = 2 × PB

AP : PB = 2 : 1

AP/PB=AQ/QC=21 ⇒

AQ = 2QC

Consider QC = x cm

x + 1 = 2x ⇒ x = 1 ⇒ QC = 1

AQ = 2 × 1 = 2

AC = AQ + QC = 2 + 1 = 3 cm

**Maths 9 Kerala Syllabus Question 6.**

In the figure, ABCD is a trapezium, and AB || CD. P is the midpoint of AD. If PQ || AB, then prove that Q is the midpoint of BC.

Answer:

Given PQ || AB,

therefore

PQ || DC also. Line segments AD and BC are dividing 3 parallel lines EC, PQ and AB. Given P is the midpoint of AD

⇒ DP = PA ∴ DP/PA = 1, ∴ CQ/QB = 1

∴ CQ = QB ∴ Q is the midpoint of BC.

In ABC, a line parallel to BC cuts AB and AC at P and Q. Show that APAB=AQAC

Answer:

AB/PB=AQ/QC (BC || PQ)

AP/PB+1=AQ/QC+1;AP+PB/PB=AQ+QC/QC

AB/PB=AQ/QC;

∴ AP/AB=AQ/AC
