## NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Mathematics Triangles

###### 1. ABC is a triangle. Locate a point in the interior of ABC which is equidistant from all the vertices of ABC.

Ans. Let ABC be a triangle.

Draw perpendicular bisectors PQ and RS of sides AB and BC respectively of triangle ABC. Let PQ bisects AB at M and RS bisects BC at point N.

Let PQ and RS intersect at point O.

Join OA, OB and OC.

Now in AOM and BOM,

AM = MB [By construction]

AMO = BMO = [By construction]

OM = OM [Common]

AOM BOM [By SAS congruency]

OA = OB [By C.P.C.T.] …..(i)

Similarly, BON CON

OB = OC [By C.P.C.T.] …..(ii)

From eq. (i) and (ii),

OA = OB = OC

Hence O, the point of intersection of perpendicular bisectors of any two sides of ABC equidistant from its vertices.

###### 2. In a triangle locate a point in its interior which is equidistant from all the sides of the triangle.

Ans. Let ABC be a triangle.

Draw bisectors of B and C.

Let these angle bisectors intersect each other at point I.

Draw IK BC

Also draw IJ AB and IL AC.

Join AI.

###### In BIK and BIJ,

IKB = IJB = [By construction]

IBK = IBJ

[ BI is the bisector of B (By construction)]

BI = BI [Common]

BIK BIJ [ASA criteria of congruency]

IK = IJ [By C.P.C.T.] ……….(i)

Similarly,CIK CIL

IK = IL [By C.P.C.T.] ……….(ii)

From eq (i) and (ii),

IK = IJ = IL

Hence, I is the point of intersection of angle bisectors of any two angles of ABC equidistant from its sides.

###### 3. In a huge park, people are concentrated at three points (See figure).

A: where there are different slides and swings for children.

B: near which a man-made lake is situated.

C: which is near to a large parking and exit.

Where should an ice cream parlour be set up so that maximum number of persons can approach it?

Ans. The parlour should be equidistant from A, B and C.

For this let we draw perpendicular bisector say of line joining points B and C also draw perpendicular bisector say of line joining points A and C.

Let and intersect each other at point O.

###### Now point O is equidistant from points A, B and C.

Join OA, OB and OC.

Proof: In BOP and COP,

OP = OP [Common]

OPB = OPC =

BP = PC [P is the mid-point of BC]

BOP COP [By SAS congruency]

OB = OC [By C.P.C.T.] …..(i)

Similarly, AOQ COQ

OA = OC [By C.P.C.T.] …..(ii)

From eq. (i) and (ii),

OA = OB = OC

Therefore, ice cream parlour should be set up at point O, the point of intersection of perpendicular bisectors of any two sides out of three formed by joining these points.

###### 4. Complete the hexagonal rangoli and the star rangolies (See figure) but filling them with as many equilateral triangles of side 1 cm as you can. Count the number of triangles in each case. Which has more triangles?

Ans. In hexagonal rangoli, Number of equilateral triangles each of side 5 cm are 6.

Area of equilateral triangle = = = sq. cm

###### Area of hexagonal rangoli = 6 x Area of an equilateral triangle

= = sq. cm ……….(i)

Now area of equilateral triangle of side 1 cm = = = = sq. cm …..(ii)

Number of equilateral triangles each of side 1 cm in hexagonal rangoli

= = = 150 …..(iii)

Now in Star rangoli,

Number of equilateral triangles each of side 5 cm = 12

###### Therefore, total area of star rangoli = 12 Area of an equilateral triangle of side 5 cm

=

=

= sq. cm ……….(iv)

Number of equilateral triangles each of side 1 cm in star rangoli

=

=

= 300 ……….(v)

From eq. (iii) and (v), we observe that star rangoli has more equilateral triangles each of side 1 cm.
