**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

It is given that $\triangle$ ABC $\sim\triangle$ DEF

=> $\frac{AB}{DE}=$Â $\frac{BC}{EF}=$Â $\frac{AC}{DF}$

Also, ratio of areas of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of the square of the corresponding sides.

=> $\frac{ar(\triangle ABC)}{ar(\triangle DEF)}=$Â $(\frac{AB}{DE})^2=(\frac{BC}{EF})^2=(\frac{AC}{DF})^2$

=> Ans – (B)

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

It is given that $\triangle$ ABC and $\triangle$ DEF are equiangular triangles, thus corresponding angles are equal.

=>Â $\triangle$ ABC $\sim\triangle$ DEF

=> Ratio of perimeter = $\frac{AB}{DE}=$Â $\frac{BC}{EF}=$Â $\frac{AC}{DF}$Â ————-(i)

Since, AL and DM are medians, => Ratio of perimeter of $\triangle$ ABC to $\triangle$ DEF = $\frac{AL}{DM}$ ———–(ii)

From, equations (i) and (ii), we getÂ :

=>Â $\frac{BC}{EF}=\frac{AL}{DM}$

=> Ans – (B)

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

If two triangles are similar, then the corresponding sides are proportional to each other. Also, the corresponding angles are equal, but the corresponding sides may or may not be equal to each other. Thus, all are correct.

=> Ans – (D)

**4)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

We have :

We here have 6 equilateral triangles of side 6cm so we can say a complete hexagon and half area of rectangle BCFE

Now In triangle ABF

using cosine rule

we get cos A = (6^2+6^2-BF^2)/2AF AB

we get BF $6\sqrt{\ 3}$

Area of shaded region = Area of hexagon + 0.5(Area of rectangle BFCE)

we get area = $6\times\ \frac{\sqrt{\ 3}}{4}\times\ 6\times\ 6\ +\ 6\sqrt{\ 3}\times\ 6\times\ 0.5$

= $54\sqrt{\ 3}+18\sqrt{\ 3}\ =72\sqrt{\ 3}$

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Side of square is 20 cm.

So, diagonal of square is 20âˆš2 cm.

So,to calculate perimeter of triangle,we get to count each diagonal 2 times and 4 sides only one time .

So, required perimeter=4Ã—20+4Ã—20âˆš2

=(80+80âˆš2) cm.

B is correct choice.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the bases of the triangles be 3x and 4x units.

Heights of the triangles be a and b units respectively.

Then, Ratio of their areas = $\dfrac{1}{2}\times3x\times a : \dfrac{1}{2}\times4x\times b = 3a : 4b$

Given, $3a :Â 4b = 1 :Â 2$

=> $3a\times2 = 4b\times1 => 6a = 4b$

=> $\dfrac{a}{b} = \dfrac{4}{6} = \dfrac{2}{3}$

Therefore, Their heights will be in the ratio 2 :Â 3.

**7)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let height of the two triangles be 3 and 2 units respectively.

Let bases of the two triangles be $b_1$ and $b_2$ units respectively.

=> Ratio of area of triangles = $\frac{\frac{1}{2}\times b_1\times h_1}{\frac{1}{2}\times b_2\times h_2}=\frac{2}{3}$

=> $\frac{3b_1}{2b_2}=\frac{2}{3}$

=> $\frac{b_1}{b_2}=\frac{4}{9}$

$\therefore$ Required ratio =Â **4Â : 9**

=> Ans – (B)

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the AreasÂ of $\triangle ABC$ and $\triangle PQR$Â areÂ $3x:5x$

LetÂ the HeightsÂ of $\triangle ABC$ and $\triangle PQR$Â areÂ $5y:3y$Â and Bases are $B_{1}$ and $B_{2}$ respectively.

Area ofÂ $\triangle ABC$ = $\frac{1}{2} \times 5y\times B_{1}$ andÂ Area ofÂ $\triangle PQR$ = $\frac{1}{2} \times3y\times B_{2}$

$\thereforeÂ \frac{3x}{5x}Â = \frac{\frac{1}{2} \times 5y\times B_{1}}{\frac{1}{2} \times3y\times B_{2}}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{B_{1}}{B_{2}} = \frac{9}{25}$

$\therefore$Â Â $B_{1}:B_{2} = 9:25$

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

We know that

Area =Â $\frac{1}{2}\times\ b\times\ h$

Now we can say

The ratio of areas of two triangles with bases b1 and b2 and heights h1 and h2 will beÂ $\frac{\left(b1\ h1\right)}{b2\ h2}$

so we get

$\frac{4}{5}=\frac{\left(5b1\ \right)}{3b2}$

so b1:b2 =12:25

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Given,

Number of sides of the polygon = 11

$=$>Â Number of vertices of the polygon = 11

Number of vertices of the triangle = 3

Number of possibilities of selecting 3 from 11 =Â $11_{C_3}$ =$\frac{11\times10\times9}{1\times2\times3}$ =Â $165$

$\therefore\ $Number ofÂ triangles that can be drawn by only using the vertices of the polygon of 11 sides = 165

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

**11)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the length of the two equal sides ofÂ right-angled isosceles triangle be x cm then hypotenuse be $x\sqrt{2} Â cm$

Area of equilateral triangle drawn on hypotenuse (H) = $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times a^{2}=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times (x\sqrt{2})^2$

Area of equilateral triangle drawn on side (A) = $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times a^{2}=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times x^2$

$\frac{A}{H}=\left(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times x^{2}\right)\times\frac{4}{\sqrt{3}}\times\frac{1}{(x\sqrt{2})^2} =Â \frac{1}{2}$

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Given that ratio of altitudes of two triangles is 4:5

=> $\frac{h_{1}}{h_{2}}$=$\frac{4}{5}$

Also, Given that, ratio of areas of two triangles is 3:2

=> $\frac{\frac{1}{2} \times b_{1} \times h_{1}}{\frac{1}{2} \times b_{2} \times h_{2}}$ = $\frac{3}{2}$

=>Â $\frac{b_{1} \times 4}{ b_{2} \times 5}$ = $\frac{3}{2}$

=>Â $\frac{b_{1}}{ b_{2}}$ =Â $\frac{15}{8}$

Therefore, ratios of the bases is 15:8

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

To find the area of the isosceles triangle ABC draw a perpendicular line from A to the base of the triangle BC and name that point as D such that it will become a right angled triangle.

Now,BD = CD =6cm.The area of the right angled triangle is given as = $\frac{1}{2}\times{b}\times{h}$,where b and h are base and height.

Height we can calculate from pythagoras theorem

$AD^{2}$ = $(AB^{2} – BD^{2})$

$\Rightarrow$ $AD^{2}$ = $(10^{2} – 6^{2})$

$\Rightarrow$ AD = 8cm.

The area of right angled now will be = $\frac{1}{2}\times{6}\times{8}$ = 24$cm^{2}$

The area of triangle ABC will be two times the area of triangle ADB = 24+24=48$cm^{2}$.

Hence option B is correct.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Triangles ABC and PQR are similar.

So,

$\frac{perimeter of ABC}{perimeter of PQR} =Â \frac{side ofÂ ABC}{side of PQR}$

$\frac{78}{46.8} = \frac{AB}{11.7}$

$\frac{78}{46.8} \times 11.7 = AB$

AB = 19.5 cm

**15)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Given thatÂ Â $10\sqrt{3}$ cm

We know the area of equilateral triangle = $ \frac{\sqrt {3}} {4} a^2 $Â Â …… Eq (1)

and on the $\triangle DCBÂ Â isÂ Â alsoÂ Â given = \frac{1}{2} \times a \times h $Â Â …… Eq (2)

then Eq(1) = Eq (2)

$ \frac{\sqrt {3}} {4} a^2Â =Â Â \frac{1}{2} \times a \times h $

$\Rightarrow h =Â \frac{\sqrt{3}} {2} a $

$\Rightarrow h =Â \frac{\sqrt{3}} {2} \timesÂ 10\sqrt{3}$

$\Rightarrow h = 15 cm Ans
