Question 1.

If the lengths of two sides of an isosceles triangle are 3 cm and 7 cm, then what is the lengths of the third side?

Solution:

2 sides of isosceles triangle are equal.

Also sum of two sides of triangle is always greater then 3rd side.

∴ The length of 3rd side = 7 cm

Question 2.

If the lengths of three consecutive sides of an isosceles trapezium are 5 cm, 6 cm and 8 cm, then what is the length of the fourth side?

Solution:

6 cm
