### Circles Text Book Questions and Answers

Textbook Page No, 42

Question 1.

Suppose we draw a circle with the bottom side of the triangles in the picture as diameter. Find out whether the top corner of each triangle is inside the circle, on the circle or outside the circle.

Answer:

Angle of the first triangle =110°

As 110° > 90° the top comer will be inside the circle

Angle of second triangle = 90°

∴ The top comer will be on the circle.

Angle of the third triangle = 70°

70° > 90°

∴ The top comer will be outside the circle

Question 2.

For each diagonal of the quadrilateral shown, check whether the other two corners are inside, on or outside the circle with that diagonal as diameter

Answer:

The fourth angle in ABCD

= 360 – (110 + 105 + 55) = 360

Drawing diagonal AC and taking it as diameter of a circle As, ∠D = 90°

D will be on the circle. ∠B = 55° (90 > 55°)

∴ B will be outside the circle

Drawing diagonal BD and taking it as diameter of a circle.

∠A = 105°, ∠C = 110°

As both angles are greater than 90, they lie inside the circle.

Question 3.

If circles are drawn with each side of a triangle of sides 5 centimetres, 12 centimetres and 13 centimetres, as diametres, then with respect to each circle, where would be the third vertex?

Answer:

As the sides are 5, 12, 13 cm and also

52 + 122 = 25 + 144 = 169 = 132

∴ ABC is a right triangle

Taking BC as diameter and drawing a circle, ∠A (<90°), A will be outside the circle.

Taking AB as diameter and drawing a circle ∠C (<90°) C will be outside the circle.

Taking AC as diameter and drawing a circle, ∠B = 90°, B will be on the circle.

Question 4.

In the picture, a circle is drawn with a line as diameter and a smaller circle with half the line as diameter. Prove that any chord of the larger circle through the point where the circles meet is bisected by the small circle.

Answer:

∠ADO = ∠APB = 90°

(angle subtended by diameter is always 90°)

⇒ OD\\PB

AO = OB (Radius of bigger circle)

(If in a triangle, the line drawn from midpoint of one side, is parallel to another side, then the line will bisect the third side)

Therefore AD = DP

(AB’s midpoint is ‘O’ and OD\\PB)

Question 5.

Use a calculator to determine up to two decimal places, the perimeter and the area of the circle in the picture.

Answer:

Question 6.

The two circles in the picture cross each other at A and B. The points P and Q are the other ends of the diameters through A.

i. Prove that P, B, Q lie on a line.

ii. Prove that PQ is parallel to the line joining the centres of the circles and is twice as long as this line.

Answer:

i. ∆ PAB (angle subtended by semicircle)

∠PBA = 90°

∆ ABQ be a triangle on the semi¬circle of centre D.

∴ ∠ABQ = 90°

∠PBA + ∠ABQ = 180 (Linear pair)

As AP, AQ are diameters of the circle. PQ be the line drawn through B per¬pendicularly to AB. Therefore P, B, Q lies on the same line.

ii.

Question 7.

Prove that the two circles drawn on the two equal sides of an isosceles triangle as diameters pass through the midpoint of the third side.

Answer:

∠ADB= 90° (AABD angle subtended by semicircle)

∠CDA = 90°

∴ ∠ADB +∠CDA = 180° (linear pair)

∆ ABD ∆ ADC are right angled triangles.

In ∆ ABD

BD^{2} = AB^{2} – AD^{2} ( AB = AC )

= AC^{2} – AD^{2} = DC^{2}

BD = CD

Question 8.

Prove that all four circles drawn with the sides of a rhombus as diameters pass through a common point.

Prove that this is true for any quadrilat¬eral with adjacent sides equal, as in the picture.

Answer:

ABCD is a rhombus so diameter are perpendicular bisectors.

∠AOD = 90°

O be on the circle having diameter AD.

∠AOB = 90°, therefore

O be on the circle having diameter AB.

∠BOC= 90°, therefore

O be on the circle having diameter BC

∠DOC= 90°, therefore

O be on the circle having diameter DC

O be the common point on the circle.

∠A0D = ∠AOB and

∠COD = ∠BOC and,

AD = AB,

AO be the common side.

Δ AOD, Δ AOB are equal triangles.

OD = OB

Both the circles can passed through O.

A BCD is an isosceles triangle.

Those circles having diameters CD and BC are passing through midpoint of BD.

∴ O be common for the four circles. (Diameter)

Question 9.

A triangle is drawn by joining a point on a semicircle to the ends of the diameter. Then semicircles are drawn with the other two sides as diameter.

Prove that the sum of the areas of the blue and red crescents in the second picture is equal to the area of the triangle.

Answer:

Area of triangle = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) × 2r × h = rh

Area of the semicircle = \(\frac{\pi r^{2}}{2}\)

Area of the rest of the figure

The diameters of the red and blue semi-circles are the sides of the two triangles.

∴ Their areas

Area of red and blue crescents

= area of the triangle

Question 1.

In all the pictures given below, O is the centre of the circle and A, B, C are points on it. Calculate all angles of Δ ABC and Δ OBC in each.

Answer:

a.

OA = OB (radii)

∴ ∠OAB = 20° ; (∠OAB = ∠OBA)

OC = OA (radii) ;

∠OAC = 30°

∠BAC = ∠OAB + ∠OAC

= 20 + 30 = 50°

∠BOC = 2x ∠BAC = 100°

OB = OC (radii)

∴ ∠OBC = ∠OCB = 40°

Angles of triangle ABC are ∠BAC = 50° ∠ABC = 60°, ∠ACB = 70°

Angles of ∆ BOC are

∠OBC = 40°, ∠OCB = 40°, ∠BOC = 100°

b.

Angles of ∆ ABC are ∠ABC = 50°, ∠BAC = 60°, ∠BCA = 70°

Angles of ∆ AOC are

∠OAC = 40°, ∠AOC = 100°, ∠OCA = 40°

c.

∠ACB = 180 – 55 = 125° ; OA = OC

∠CAO = ∠ACO = 70° ; ∠OBC = ∠BCO = 55° Angles of A OBC are

∠OBC = 55° ∠COB = 70° ∠BCO = 55°

Angles of ∆ ABC

Answer:

The angle subtended by two adjacent numbers at the centre of the clock is 30°

We can make 4 equilateral triangles by joining the numbers on the clock (1. 5, 9), (2, 6, 10), (3. 7, 11), (4, 8, 12)

Question 3.

In each problem below, draw a circle and a chord to divide it into two parts such that the parts are as specified.

i. All angles on one part 80°.

ii. All angles on one part 110°.

iii. All angles on one part half of all angles on the other.

iv. All angles on one part, one and a half times the angles on the other.

Answer:

i. ∠AOB = 160°

Therefore all angles in the are ACB arc 80°.

ii. Draw angle as central angle 220° so angle on the small arc AB will be 110°.

iii. Draw angle as central angle 120° or 240° All angles on one part will be 120°, and other part be 60°.

iv. Draw a circle and draw central angle 144° All angles on the part APB will be 120° and All angles on the part AQB will be 108°.

Question 4.

∠OAC + ∠ABC = 90°

Answer:

Question 6.

Draw a triangle of circumradius 3 centimetres and two of the angles 32\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\) and 37\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\)

Answer:

Draw a circle with radius 3 cm and central angle 65°.

Half of 65° is 32\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\) Similarly we can draw 75°

Join the points A, B and C Halfof75°is 373\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\) Complete the triangle.

Question 7.

In the picture, AB and CD are mutually perpendicular chords of the circle. Prove that the arcs APC and BQD joined together would make half the circle.

Answer:

If ∠ADC = x

∠AOC =2x

(Angle subtended on the alternate arc is half of the central angle of arc )

If ∠BAD = y

∠BOD= 2y

∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2x + 2y

= 2 (x + y) = 2 × 90 = 180°

∴ The arcs APC and BQD joined together will make half the circle.

Question 8.

In the picture, A, B, C, D are points on a circle centred at O. The lines AC and BD are extended to meet at P. The line and BC intersect at Q. Prove that the angle which the small are AB makes at O is the sum of the angles it makes at P and Q.

Answer:

Textbook Page No. 59

Question 1.

Calcula te the angles of the quadrilateral in the picture and also the angles between their diagonals:

Answer:

Since

∠ACD = 30°

∠ABD = 30°

(Angle in the same segment of a circle)

Since ZCBD = 45°

∠CAD = 45°

Since ZBDC = 50°

∠BAC = 50°

∠ABC + ∠ADC = 180 (cyclic quadrilateral)

∠ABC = 75°

∴ ∠ADC = 180 – 75 = 105°

∠ADB = 105 – 50 = 55°

As, ∠BAD = 95°

∠DCB = 180 – 95 = 85°

∴ ∠ACB = 85 – 30 = 55°

Question 2.

Prove that any outer angle of a cyclic quadrilateral is equal to the inner angle at the opposite vertex.

Answer:

PQRS is cyclic Quadrilateral

∠PSR + ∠PQR = 180°

(sum of opposite angles)

∠PQR + ∠RQT = 180° (linear pair)

From this we get ∠PSR = ∠RQT

Question 3.

Prove that a parallelogram which is not a rectangle is not cyclic.

Answer:

PQRS is cyclic quadrilateral.

∠P + ∠R = 180

Also in a parallelogram opposite angles will be equal.

∠P + ∠R = 180°

∠P = ∠R = 90°

This means that PQRS must be a rectangle, otherwise, it is not cyclic.

Question 4.

Prove that any non-isosceles trapezium is not cyclic.

Answer:

opposite angles are not supplementary.

∴ ABCD is not cyclic. Non-isosceles trapezium is not cyclic.

Question 5.

In the picture, bisectors of adjacent angles of the quadrilateral ABCD intersect at P, Q, R, S.

Prove that PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral.

Answer:

2x + 2y + 2z + 2w = 360°;

x + y + z + w = 180°

Δ DPC; ∠DPC = 180 – (w + z)

Δ ARB ; ∠ARB =180 – (x + y)

∠R + ∠P = 360 – (x + y + z + w) = 360 – 180 = 180°

In ΔBQC ZQ = m – (w + x)

In Δ ASD ∠S = 180 – (r + y)

Similarily ∠S +∠Q = 180.

PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral.

Question 6.

Therefore the circumcircle of ACPQ also passes through M

Textbook Page No. 67

Question 1.

In the picture, chords AB and CD of the circle are extended to meet at P.

i. Prove that the angles of Δ APC and Δ PBD, formed by joining AC and BD, are the same.

ii. Prove that PA × PB = PC × PD.

iii. Prove that if PB = PD, then ABDC is an isosceles trapezium.

Answer:

i. As ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.

If ∠BAC = x° then

∠BDC = 180 – x ∠BDP = x°

If ∠ACD = y° then ∠PBD = y°

As ∠APC is common angle.

Angles of Δ APC and Δ PBD are same

iii. If PB = PD ; AP= PC

In ABCD

ABDC is a cyclic quadrilateral, so their opposite angles are supplementary.

If AP = PC, in ∆ APC

∠A =∠C

As AB = CD

AC || BD

Adjacent angles are supplementary

∴ ABCD will be an isosceles trapezium

Question 2.

Draw a rectangle of width 5 centimetres and height 3 centimetres.

i. Draw a rectangle of the same area with width 6 centimetres.

ii. Draw a square of the same area.

Answer:

i. Draw a rectangle of length 5 cm and width 3cm.

Extend AB up to 6cm.

(AE = 6cm) Draw an arc having radius as AE and A as centre. Extend DA and mark the point F.

Extend BA towards left. Mark G as AD = AG

Draw Δ GFB.

Circum circle of Δ GFB meets AD at D.

∴ AG × AB = AF × AH.

That is area of the rectangle having length AB and width AD is equal to the area of rectangle having length AE and width AH.

ii. Draw a rectangle of length 5cm and width 3cm. Area = 5 x 3 = 15 cm2.

Therefore side of a square will be √15.

Draw a semicircle of diameter AH.

Extend BC, and mark the point F.

AB × BH = 5 × 3 = 15

AB × BH = BF2 ; BF = √5 cm

Area of BEGF = √15 × √15 = 15 cm^{2}

Question 3.

Draw a square of area 15 square centimetres.

Answer:

Draw a rectangle of length 5cm and width 3cm. Area = 3 × 5 cm^{2} = 15 cm^{2}. Side of the square is √15.

Draw a semicircle of diameter AH.

BC can touch the point F.

AB × BH = BF2 = √152 = 15 cm^{2}.

Area of BEGF = 15 cm^{2}.

Question 4.

Draw a square of area 5 square centimetres in three different ways. (Recall Pythagoras theorem)

Answer:

i. Draw a rectangle of length 5cm and width 1 cm.

Draw a semicircle of diameter AE. Extend BC up to F. √5 is the side of the square BGHF.

ii. Draw a right-angled triangle of perpendicular sides 2 cm and 1cm.

Hypotenuse will be y is cm. The area of the square ACDE is 5 cm^{2}, because here we take the hypotenuse as sides of the square.

iii. Draw a right-angled triangle of hypotenuse 3 cm and one side 2cm.

Third side = \(\sqrt{3^{2}-2^{2}}=\sqrt{5} \mathrm{cm}\)

Draw a square having side BC, then area of the square BEDC will be 5cm^{2}

Question 5.

In the picture, a line through the centre of a circle cuts a chord into two parts:

What is the radius of the circle?

Answer:

The intersection may be with in the circle.

Chords AB & CD intersect at P i. e.,

AP × PB = CP × PD

(The intersection will be inside the circle)

AP × PB = CP × PD

4 × 6 = CP × (OP + OD)

24 = CP × (OP + OC)

24 = CP × (OP + OP + CP)

24 = CP × (5 + 5 + CP)

24 = CP × (10 + CP)

CP =2

Radius = CP + OP = 2 + 5 = 7cm

Question 6.

In the picture, a line through the centre of a circle meets a chord of the circle:

What are the lengths of the two pieces of the chord?

Answer:

CP= 13 – PB

Therefore equation (1)

(13 – PB)PB = 40

PB = 5, 8

If PB = 5cm then PC = 8cm

If PB = 8cm then PC = 5cm

In figure PB > PC

PB = 8 cm, PC = 5 cm

If CD = x, then

⇒ 8 × 3 = (2 + x)2 ⇒ 24 = 4 + 2x

⇒ 2x = 20 ⇒ x = \(\frac { 20 }{ 2 }\) = 10

∴ CD= 10

Question 9.

In the figure AB is the diameter and CD is parallel to the diameter. AB = 8cm,BD = 2cm, find CD

Answer:

If we draw a perpendicular DP to AB from D. Then PAxPB = PD2.

Here PB = x, then PA = 8 – x.

x(8 – x) = PD^{2}, 2^{2} = x^{2} + PD^{2}

x(8 – x) = 4 – x^{2}, 8x – x^{2} = 4 – x^{2}

8x = 4, x = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)

Similarly, let us draw a perpendicular CQ to AB from C
