REQUISITES/LINKAGE WITH PREVIOUS TOPIC/LECTURE:

  • The Bisectors of Angles of a given triangle.

    Given: ABC is a triangle

    Required : To draw the bisectors of angles A, B and C

    Construction:

    1. Draw the ABC

    2. With point B as a centre draw an arc of any radius, intersecting the sides BC and BA at point L and M

    ANGLES BISECTORS OF  ABC

    3. Take point L as a centre and draw an arc of any radius.

    4. Now take M as a centre and with the same radius draw the another arc, which cuts the previous arc at point P

    5. Join point P to B and produce it. Thus BP is the bisector of <B

    6. Similarly, repeat steps (2) to (5) to draw CQ and AR the bisectors of <C and <A respectively.

    Hence BP, CQ and AR are the required bisectors of angles of a  arc concurrent.

    Note: The angles bisectors intersect at a point I, which is called in centre and the bisectors of angles of a  are concurrent.

  • How to draw the right bisectors of sides of a triangle ABC.

3. Now with A as a centre and with the same radius, draw arcs on either sides of AB cutting previous arcs at P and Q.

4. Join P and Q

Thus PQ is the right bisector of AB,

5. Similarly, repeat steps (2) to (4) and draw ST and LM, the right bisectors of BC and AC respectively. Hence PQ, ST and LM arc the required right bisector of the sides AB, BC and AC respectively of  ABC.

Note: Right bisectors of ABC pass through O. So they arc concurrent.

A set of points of a plane which are equidistant from a given (fixed) point is called a CIRCLE:

The fixed point is called the “Centre” of the Circle.

Circum Circle:

A circle which passes through the three vertices of a triangle is called “Circum Circle” (or circumscribed circle) and the centre is called “Circum Centre” of the circle.

In-Circle:

The circle which touches the three sides of a triangle is called in-circle or inscribed circle of the triangle and its centre is called “In-Centre”.


Construction3

Median of a Triangle:

Line segments joining, the vertices of a triangle to the mid points of the opposite sides are called medians of the triangle.

Given:

A triangle ABC, in which mAB = 6.8cm, mBC = 8cm and mAC = 10.0cm.

Required:

Draw the medians of ABC.


Construction4
CONSTRUCTION:

  • Draw a line segment BC = 8cm

  • From point B draw an arc of radius 6.8cm.

  • From point C draw an arc of radius 10cm which intersects the previous arc at point A.

    Thus  ABC is constructed.

  • Draw the mid point D of Side BC

  • Draw the mid point E of Side AC

  • Draw the mid point F of Side AB

  • Join A to D, B to E and C to F.

    Thus AD, BE and CF are our required medians of ABC, which meet in a point O.

    It may be noted that medians of every triangle are concurrent (i.e. meet in one point) and their point of concurrency called “centraid”, divides each of them in the ratio of 2:1.

    By actual measurement it can be prove that

    mAO = mBO = mCO = 2

2. Take a point A as centre and draw an arc of suitable radius, which cuts BC at points D and E.

3. From D as centre, draw an arc of radius more than ½ mDE.

4. Again from point E draw another arc of same radius, cutting first arc at point F.

5. Join the points A and F, such that AF intersects BC at point P. Then AP is the altitude of the  ABC from the vertex A.

6. Similarly, repeat the steps (2) to (5) and draw BQ and CR, the altitudes of  ABC from the vertices B and C respectively.

Hence AP, BQ and CR are the required altitudes of  ABC, which meet in a point O.

The points P, Q and R are called the feet of these altitudes.

Note: It may be remember that the altitudes of a triangle are always concurrent. The point of concurrency is called the “ORTHO CENTRE”

A set of points of a plane which are equidistant from a fixed (given) point is called a circle.

The fixed point is called the centre of the circle.

Centre of Circle

RIADIUS OF THE CIRCLE:

The distance of any point of the circle from its centre is called “radius” of the circle. It may be noted.

C A

2cm

Radius is a number not a line segment.

The line segment joining the centre with any point of the circle is called the “Radial Segment”.

In figure we see a circle whose centre is C and radius 2cm and CA is the radial segment.


  • CHORD OF THE CIRCLE:

  • The line segment whose end points are any two points of the circle is called a Chord of the circle. In fig. CD is the chord.

  • DIAMETER:

  • A chord which passes through the centre of the circle is called a diameter. In fig PQ is a diameter.

  • CIRCUMFERENCE OF A CIRCLE:

  • The length of the curve joining all points of a circle is called circumference of the circle.

  • Mathematically it is denoted by

  • C = 2

  • Where  is the radius of the circle and  = 22 or 3.14 7

TANGENT:

If there is only one point Common between a line and a circle, the line is called a tangent to the circle. OR

A line which is perpendicular to the outer end of the radius is called a tangent. OR

A line which touches the circle at only one point is called a tangent. In Fig. PQ is a tangent.

SECANT:

If there are two distinct points common to a line and a circle, the line is called a secant of the circle. In fig. DE is a secant.

TO DRAW TANGENTS TO A CIRCLE FROM A POINT OUTSIDE THE CIRCLE :

1- Question:

Draw a circle of radius 2.5cm Take a point T at a distance of 6cm from the centre. Draw the tangents to the circle passing through T. Measure the lengths of the tangents and verify the answer by mathematical calculation.

Given:

A circle of radius 2.5cm. T is a point out side the circle at a distance of 6cm from the centre of the circle.

Required:

To draw tangents to the given circle from the point-T

Construction:

1. Draw a circle of radius 2.5cm with centre O.

2. Take a point “T” outside the circle such that

OT = 6cm.

3. Draw the mid point M of OT.

4. With centre “M” and radius OM or MT draw a

circle S2 intersecting the given circle “S1” at

points P and Q.


5. Join T with P and Q. :

Thus PT and QT are the required tangents.

6. On measuring of PT or QT we get 5.4 cm

VERIFICATION:

In right angled triangle  OPT.

m<OPT = 90° (Angle in the Semi-Circle)

(m OP)2 + (m PT)2 = (mOT)2

(Acc. To Pythagoras theorem)

(2.5)2 + (mPT)2 = (6)2

6.25 + (mPT)2 = 36

(m PT)2 = 36-6.25

(m PT)2 = 29.75

mPT =  29.75

mPT = 5.4 cm

Hence verified

Thus DE and D’E’ are our required direct common tangents”. On measuring we get

DE = D’E’ = 5.8cm

VERIFICATION:

In  ACB

m<ACB = 90° (Angle in the Semi-circle)

According to Pythagoras theorems

(AB)2 = (AC)2 + (BC)2

(6)2 = (1.5)2 + (DE)2 (since BC = DE)

36 = 2.25 + (DE)2

DE2 = 36 – 2.25

DE2 = 33.75

DE = 33.75

m DE = 5.8cm

Thus verified



Transverse common tangents
TRANSVERSE COMMON TANGENTS: :

10. With Centre D’ and radius equal to BC draw an arc E’ on the Second Circle S2.

11. Draw DE and D’E’.

12. Also join B to E and B to E’



Thus DE and D’E’ are our required Transverse Common Tangents.

On measuring we get

m DE = mD’E’ = 3.8cm

VERIFICATION:

In  ACB ,

m<ACB = 90° (Angle in the Semi-circle)

According to Pythagoras theorems

(mAB)2 = (AC)2 + (BC)2

(6)2 = ( 5 )2 + (DE)2 ( DE = BC )

36 = 25 + (DE)2

(DE)2 = 36 – 25

(DE)2 = 11

m DE =  11

mDE = 3.3 cm

Thus verified
