Question 1.

Draw a triangle ABC, where AB = 8 cm, BC = 6 cm and ∠B = 70° and locate its circumcentre and draw the circumcircle.

Solution:

Steps for construction:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with the given measures.

Step 2: Construct the perpendicular bisector of (AB and BC) any two sides and let them, meet at S which is the circumcenter.

Step 3: With S as centre and SA = SB = SC as radius draw the circumcircle to passes through A, B and C.

Circum radius = 4.3 cm.

Solution:

Steps for construction:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with the given measures.

Step 2: Construct the perpendicular bisector of any two sides (AB and BC) and let them meet at S which is the circumcenter.

Step 3: With S as centre and SA = SB = SC as radius draw the circumcircle to passes through A, B and C.

Circum radius = 4.3 cm.

Question 4.

Construct an isosceles triangle PQR where PQ = PR and ∠Q = 50°, QR = 7cm. Also draw its circumcircle.

Solution:

Given PQ = PR

∴ ∠R = 50° (opposite angles are equal)

Steps for construction:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with the given measures.

Step 2: Construct the perpendicular bisector of any two sides (QR and PR) and let them meet at S. S is the circumcenter of ΔPQR.

Step 3: With S as centre SP = SQ = SR as radius. Draw the circumcircle.

Circum radius = 3.5 cm.

Question 5.

Draw an equilateral triangle of side 6.5 cm and locate its incentre. Also draw the incircle.

Solution:

Steps for construction:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with the each side measure 6.5 cm.

Step 2: Construct the angles bisectors of any two angles (A and B) and let them meet at I. Then I is the incentre of ΔABC.

Step 3: Draw perpendicular from I to any one of the side (AB) to meet AB at D.

Step 4: With I as centre and ID as radius draw the circle. This circle touches all the sides of the triangle internally.

Step 5: Measure of In-radius = 1.5 cm.

Question 6.

Draw a right triangle whose hypotenuse is 10 cm and one of the legs is 8 cm. Locate its incentre and also draw the incircle

Solution:

Steps for construction:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with AB = 8cm, BC = 10 cm and ∠A = 90°.

Step 2: Construct the angle bisectors of any two angles (∠B and ∠C) and let them meet at I. Then I is the incentre of ΔABC.

Step 3: Draw perpendicular from I to any one of the side to meet AB at D.

Step 4: With I as centre and ID as radius draw the circle. This circle touches all the sides of the triangle internally.

Step 5: Measure of In-radius = 1.8 cm.

Question 7.

Draw ΔABC given AB = 9 cm, ∠CAB = 115° and ∠ABC = 40°. Locate its incentre and also draw the incircle. (Note: You can check from the above examples that the incentre of any triangle is always in its interior).

Solution:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with AB = 9cm, ∠B = 40° and ∠A = 115°.

Step 2: Construct the angle bisectors of any two angles (A and B) and let them meet at I. Then I is the incentre of ΔABC.

Step 3: Draw perpendicular from I to any one of the side (AB) to meet AB at D.

Step 4: With I as centre and ID as radius draw the circle. This circle touches all the sides of the triangle internally.

Step 5: Measure of In-radius = 2.7 cm.

Question 8.

Construct ΔABC in which AB = BC = 6cm and ∠B = 80°. Locate its incentre and draw the incircle.

Solution:

Steps for construction:

Step 1: Draw the ΔABC with AB = 6 cm, ∠B = 80° and BC = 6 cm.

Step 2: Construct the angle bisectors of any two angles (A and B) and let them meet at I. Then I is the incentre of ΔABC.

Step 3: Draw perpendicular from I to any one of the side (AB) to meet AB at D.

Step 4: With I as centre and ID as radius draw the circle. This circle touches all the sides of the triangle internally.

Step 5: Measure of In-radius = 1.9 cm.
