True

IV. Very Short Answer Type Questions:

Question 1.
Can a ∆ABC be constructed, in which BC = 6 cm, ∠C = 30° and AC - AB = 4 cm.
Yes, because the difference of any two sides of a triangle is always less than the third side.

Question 2.
Can an angle of 67.5° be constructed?
Yes, because
67.5° = $$\frac{135^{\circ}}{2}=\frac{1}{2}$$ (90°+ 45°)

Question 1.
Draw an exterior angle of a triangle. By using ruler and compass, bisect it.

Steps of Construction :

1. Draw a ∆ABC. Extend BC to make an exterior angle ∠ACD.
2. Bisect angle ∠ACD → Taking C as centre and any suitable radius, draw an arc to intersect AC at M and CD, at N.
3. Taking M as centre and radius more than half of MN draw an arc.
4. Also taking N as centre, cut the previous arc at O.
5. Join CO.

Question 2.
Can a ∆ABC be constructed in which ∠B = 105°, ∠C = 90° and AB + BC + CA = 10 cm?
It is given that :
AB + BC + CA = 10 cm
∠B = 105° and ∠C = 90°
Also, ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 105° + 90° = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 195° = 180°
⇒ ∠A = - 15° which is not possible as in ∆ABC, sum of two angles is more than 180°.
Thus, ∆ABC cannot be constructed.

Question 3.
Construct an equilateral triangle if its altitude is 6 cm. Give justification for your construction.

Draw a line XY. Take any point D on this line. Construct perpendicular PD on XY. Cut a line segment AD from PD equal to 6 cm. Make angles equal to 30° at A on both sides of AD, say ∠CAD and ∠BAD where B and C lie on XY. Then ABC is the required triangle.

Justification: Since ∠A = 30° + 30° = 60° and AD ⊥ BC, ∆ABC is an equilateral triangle with altitude AD = 6 cm.

Question 4.
Draw an acute-angled triangle ABC. Construct perpendicular bisectors of AB and BC intersecting each other at O. Measure OA, OB and OC. Are they equal?
Steps of Construction :

1. Draw an acute-angled triangle ABC.
2. Taking B and A as centres and' radius more than BA, draw arcs on both sides of the line segment BA (to intersect each other).
3. Let these arcs intersect each other at D and E. Join DE.
4. Let DE intersect BA at the point M. Then line DME is the required bisector of BA.
5. Again, taking B and C as centres and radius more than \frac{1}{2}BC, draw arcs on both sides of the line segment BC (to intersect each other).
6. Let these arcs intersect each other at F and G. Join FG.
7. Let FG intersect BC at the point N. Then line FNG is the required bisector of BC.
8. Let the bisectors DME and FNG intersect each other at O.
By measurement, OA = OB = OC = 3.8 cm

Question 5.
Construct a rhombus whose diagonals are 8 cm and 6 cm long. Measure the length of each side of the rhombus.

Steps of Construction:

1. Draw a line segment AC = 8 cm.
2. Draw the right bisector PQ of the line segment AC. Let O be the point of intersection of AC and PQ so that O is the mid-point of AC.
3. From OP, cut a line segment OD = 3 cm and .from OQ, cut a line segment OB = 3 cm.
(∵ The other diagonal is 6 cm long and half of 6 cm is 3 cm.)
4. Join AD, DC, CB and AB, then ABCD is the required rhombus.
5. Measure the lengths of segments AB, BC, CD and DA; each is found to be 5 cm long.
Justification: Right triangles AOB, BOC, COD and AOD are congruent to each other as ∠AOB = ∠BOC = ∠COD = ∠AOD = 90°; OA = OC = 4 cm and OB = OD 3 cm.
(By SAS congruency criterion)

Question 6.
Construct ∆ABC in which BC = 6.8 cm, ∠B = 45° and ∠C = 45°. Construct angle bisector of ∠B and ∠C and let them intersect at point O. Measure angle BOC.

Steps of Construction :

1. Draw a line segment BC =6.8 cm.
2. Draw ∠PBC = 45° at point B and draw ∠QCB = 45° at point C.
3. Mark the point of intersection of ray BP and ray CQ at A.
4. Now, draw the angle bisectors of ∠ABC and ∠ACB, let them to intersect each other at point O. On measuring the ∠BOC, we get the value 135°

Question 7.
Construct an angle of 7\frac{1^{\circ}}{2} using compass and ruler only.

Steps of Construction:
Here, 7 $$\frac{1^{\circ}}{2}=\frac{60^{\circ}}{8}=\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{1}{2} \times 60^{\circ}$$,
so construct an angle of 7$$\frac{1^{\circ}}{2}$$, first draw an angle of 60°, say ∠BOC and then bisect to get ∠BOP = 30°. Again bisect ∠BOP, to get ∠BOK = 15°, Further, bisect ∠BOK to get ∠BOT = 7$$\frac{1^{\circ}}{2}$$.

Question 1.
Construct a triangle PQR such that ∠P = 90°, ∠Q = 60° and the perimeter of the triangle is 12 cm.

Steps of Construction:

1. Draw AB = 12 cm.
2. At A construct ∠BAS = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 90° = 45° and at B construct ∠ABT = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 60° = 30°.
3. Let AS and BT meet at R.
4. Draw perpendicular bisector of AR to meet AB at P.
5. Draw perpendicular bisector of BR to meet AB at Q.
6. Join RP and PQ. Then RPQ is the required triangle.

Question 2.
Construct a triangle ABC in which AB = 5.8 cm, BC + CA = 8.4 cm and ∠B = 60°. Also, justify the construction.

In order to construct the ∆ ABC we follow the following steps:

Steps of Construction:

1. Draw AB = 5.8 cm.
2. Draw ∠ABX = 60°
3. From ray BX, cut-off line segment BD = BC + CA = 8.4 cm.
5. Draw the perpendicular bisector of AD meeting BD at C.
6. Join AC to obtain the required triangle ABC.

Justification: Clearly, C lies on the perpendicular bisector of AD.
∴CA = CD
Now, BD = 8.4 cm
⇒ BC + CD = 8.4 cm .
⇒ BC + CA = 8.4 cm .
Hence, ∆ABC is the required triangle.

Question 3.
Construct a ∆ABC in which ∠B = 60°, ∠C = 75° and the perpendicular from the vertex A to the base BC is 5 cm.
