Question 5.

Using ruler and compasses only, construct a parallelogram ABCD using the following data: AB = 6 cm, AD = 3 cm and ∠DAB = 45°.

If the bisector of ∠DAB meets DC at P, prove that ∠APB is a right angle.

Solution:

Steps of constructions :

(i) Draw a line segment AB = 6 cm.

(ii) At A draw a ray AX making an angle of 45° and cut off AD = 3 cm.

(iii) With centres B and radius 3 cm and with centre D and radius 6 cm, draw arcs intersecting each other at C.

(iv) Join BC and DC.

ABCD is the required ||gm.

(v) Draw the angle bisector of A meeting CD at P and join BP.

To prove : ∠APB = 90°

Proof: In ∆ADB,

∠DPA = ∠PAB (alternate angles)

But ∠DAP = ∠PAB (∵ AP is the bisector of CA)

∴ ∠DAP = ∠DPA = \(\frac { 134° }{ 2 }\) = 67\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\)

∴ AD = DO = 3 cm

Similarly in ∆BCP

PC = DC – DP = 6 – 3 = 3 cm

∴ PC = CB = 3 cm

∴ ∠CPB = ∠CBP

But ∠CPB + ∠CBP = 180°- ∠BCP

= 180° – 45°= 135° (∵ ∠BCP = ∠DAB = 45°)

∴ ∠CPB = ∠CBP = \(\frac { 134° }{ 2 }\) = 67\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\)

But ∠DPA + ∠CPB + ∠APB = 180°

(angles of a line)

⇒ 22\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\) + 67\(\frac { 1° }{ 2 }\) + ∠APB = 180°

⇒ 90° + ∠APB = 180°

⇒ ∠APB = 180° – 90° = 90°

Hence ∠APQ = 90°

Hence proved.
