Given that m PRQ = 120
We know that the line joining the centre and
the external point is the angle bisector between
the tangents.
120
Thus, m PRO = m QRO = 60

Also we know that lengths of tangents from an external point
are equal.
Thus, PR = RQ.
Join OP and OQ.
Since OP and OQ are the radii from the centre O,
OP PR and OQ RQ.
Thus, OPR and OQR are right angled congruent triangles.
Hence, POR=90 PRO=90 60 30

25. Let  be the length of the longer side and b be the length of the shorter side.
Given that the length of the diagonal of the rectangular field is 16 metres more than
the shorter side.
Thus, diagonal = 16 + b
Since longer side is 14 metres more than shorter side, we have,
= 14 + b
Diagonal is the hypotenuse of the triangle.
Consider the following figure of the rectangular field.

## By applying Pythagoras Theorem in ABD, we have,

(16 b)2 (14 b)2 b2
256 b2 32b 196 b2 28b b2
256 32b 196 28b b2
60 32b 28b b2
b2 4b 60 0

b 10b 6b 60 0
b(b 10) 6(b 10) 0
(b 6)(b 10) 0
(b 6) 0 or (b 10) 0
b 6 or b 10
As breadth cannot be negative, breadth = 10 m
Thus, length of the rectangular field = 14 + 10 = 24 m

## Let P be an external point and PA and PB are tangents to the circle.

We need to prove that PA = PB
Now consider the triangles OAP and OBP
mA = mB = 90
OP = OP [common]
OA = OB = radii of the circle
Thus, by Right Angle-Hypotenuse-Side criterion of congruence we have,
OAP  OBP
The corresponding parts of the congruent triangles are congruent.
Thus,
PA = PB

27. In the figure, C is the midpoint of the minor arc PQ, O is the centre of the circle and
AB is tangent to the circle through point C.
We have to show that the tangent drawn at the midpoint of the arc PQ of a circle is
parallel to the chord joining the end points of the arc PQ.
We will show that PQ AB.
It is given that C is the midpoint point of the arc PQ.
So, arc PC = arc CQ.
PC = CQ

## This shows that PQC is an isosceles triangle.

Thus, the perpendicular bisector of the side PQ of PQC passes through vertex C.
The perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through the centre of the circle.
So the perpendicular bisector of PQ passes through the centre O of the circle.
Thus perpendicular bisector of PQ passes through the points O and C.
PQ  OC
AB is the tangent to the circle through the point C on the circle.
AB  OC
The chord PQ and the tangent PQ of the circle are perpendicular to the same line OC.
PQ  AB.

30.
Steps for construction:
1. Draw a line segment AB = 5 cm.
2. At B construct mABC = 60
3. Take a measure of 6 cm, and draw an arc from B on BC.
4. Join AC to obtain ABC.
5. Below AB, make an acute angle BAX.
6. Since 7 > 5, mark off 7 points A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6 and A7 such that
AA1 = A1A2 = A2A3 = A3A4 = A4A5 = A5A6 = A6A7.
7. Join A7B.

8. Since we have to construct a triangle each of whose sides is of the
7
corresponding sides of ABC. So take five parts out of seven equal parts on AX.
i.e. from point A5, draw A5B' || A7B, meeting AB at B'.
9. From B', draw B'C' || BC, meeting AC at C'
10. AB'C' is the required, each of the sides is five-seventh of the corresponding
sides of ABC.
