$\dfrac{AD}{DB} = \dfrac{AE}{EC}$

Here, $\dfrac{AD}{DB} = \dfrac{2}{1}$ and AE = 8 cm

⇒ $\dfrac{2}{1} = \dfrac{8}{EC}$
⇒ $EC = 4 cm$
Here, AC = AE+EC = 4+8 = 12 cm

Given, DE is parallel to BC.
Then, $\dfrac{AD}{DB} = \dfrac{AE}{EC}$

Here, $\dfrac{AD}{DB} = \dfrac{3}{1}$

AE= 18 cm
$\dfrac{3}{1} = \dfrac{18}{EC}$
⇒ EC = 6 cm
AC = AE+EC = 6+18 = 24 cm

Given, DE is parallel to BC.
Then, $\dfrac{AD}{DB} = \dfrac{AE}{EC}$

Here, $\dfrac{AD}{DB} = \dfrac{2}{5}$

AE= 4 cm
$\dfrac{2}{5} = \dfrac{4}{EC}$
⇒ EC = 10 cm
AC = AE+EC = 4+10 = 14 cm

Given that the coordinates of a right-angled triangle are A (6, 2), B(8, 0) and C (2, -2).
We know that the distance between two points(a, b) &(c, d) is
D = $\sqrt{(a-c)^2+(b-d)^2}$
AB = $2\sqrt{2}$ units; BC = $2\sqrt{10}$; AC = $4\sqrt{2}$
Now, $AB^2 + AC^2 = BC^2$
Therefore, angle A is right angled.
Since it is a right angled triangle, the 2 sides adjacent to the right angle will be altitudes. The third altitude must meet at the vertex at which these 2 sides meet.
Hence, the vertex that contains the right angle is the orthocentre. From the points given, we can clearly see that (6, 2) is the orthocentre. Option C is the right answer,

Given,
AD = 24 cm and ABC is an equilateral triangle In an equilateral triangle all the angles are equal to 60°

In $\triangle$ADC

=> $tan \angle ACD = \frac{AD}{DC}$

=> $tan 60° = \frac{24}{DC}$

=> DC = $\frac{24}{\sqrt{3}} = 8\sqrt{3}$

=> BC = 2*DC = $16\sqrt{3}$

Area of $\triangle$ ABC = $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4} * side^2$

= $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4} * (16\sqrt{3})^2$

= $192\sqrt{3} cm^2$

Given the sides of triangle are 28 m, 45 m and 53 m

Since, $28^2 + 45^2 = 784+2025 = 2809 = 53^2$

=> The given sides are of right angled triangle as,

$c^2 + b^2 = a^2$where a, b, c are the sides of the triangle.

=> Area of triangular field = $\large\frac{1}{2}$ $\times 28 \times 45= 630 m^2$

=> Cost of sowing seeds = $12 \times 630 = Rs. 7560 rupees/m^2$

Let $\angle Q$=2x and $\angle R$=2y
Sum of angles in a triangle=180
2x+2y+110=180
2x+2y=70
x+y=35
Similarly in the triangle QOR we have $\angle OQR +\angle QRO+ \angle QOR$=180
x+y+$\angle QOR =180^\circ$
35+$\angle QOR =180^\circ$
$\angle QOR =145^\circ$

In triangle XYZ we have s=12
(x+y+z)/2 =12
x+y+z=24
12+6+y=24
y=6
Angle bisector divides the opposite side in the ratio of other sides i.e
XY/XZ=YA/AZ
YA/AZ=12/6
YA/AZ=2:1

In triangle ABC we have s=9
(a+b+c)/2 =9
a+b+c=18
4+6+b=18
b=8
Angle bisector divides the opposite side in the ratio of other sides i.e
AB/AC=BX/XC
BX/XC=4/8
BX/XC=1:2

In an equilateral triangle,all the points such as orthocentre,centroid,circumcenter coincide.
Let the triangle be PQR and the circumcentre be O. let median intersect QR at A
Centroid divides median in the ratio 2:1.PA=h,OA=R
OA=15 cm
Therefore (PO:OA)=2:1
PO:15=2:1
PO=30
PA=PO+OP
PA=30+15
PA=45
PA is also the altitude using it side of the triangle can be calculated.
$\sqrt{3}*s/2$=45

s=$30\sqrt{3}$
Area of an equilateral triangle=$\sqrt{3}(s^{2})/4$
=$675\sqrt{3}$

In an equilateral triangle,all the points such as orthocentre,centroid,circumcenter coincide.
Let the triangle be PQR and the circumcentre be O. let median intersect QR at A
Centroid divides median in the ratio 2:1
OA=5 cm
Therefore (PO:OA)=2:1
PO:5=2:1
PO=10
PA=PO+OP
PA=10+5
PA=15
PA is also the altitude using it side of the triangle can be calculated.

$\sqrt{3}*s/2$=15

s=$10\sqrt{3}$

Area of an equilateral triangle=$\sqrt{3}(s^{2})/4$

=$75\sqrt{3}$

In an equilateral triangle,all the points such as orthocentre,centroid,circumcenter coincide.
So O is also the centroid.
Centroid divides median in the ratio 2:1
Therefore (PO:OA)=2:1
12:OA=2:1
OA=6
PA=PO+PA
PA=12+6
PA=18

In an equilateral triangle,all the points such as orthocentre,centroid,circumcenter coincide.
So O is also the centroid.
Centroid divides median in the ratio 2:1
Therefore (XO:OA)=2:1
8:OA=2:1
OA=4
XA=XO+OA
XA=8+4
XA=12

In a triangle XYZ,
$\angle X+\angle Y+\angle Z$=180
Given $\angle Y$=40 $\angle Z$=60
Therefore $\angle X$=180-(40+60)
=80
As I is the incentre we have $\angle YIZ$=90+($\angle X$/2)
=90+40
=130

In a triangle PQR,
$\angle P+\angle Q+\angle R$=180
Given $\angle Q$=70 $\angle R$=40
Therefore $\angle P$=180-(40+70)
=70
As I is the incentre we have $\angle QIR$=90+($\angle P$/2)
=90+35
=125

Given that, ∠COB = 124°

To find : $\angle$RPQ = $\theta$ = ?

Solution : Let $\angle$CAB = $2x$ and $\angle$ACB = $2y$

=> $\angle$OBC = $x$ and $\angle$OCB = $y$ [SInce, BO & CO are angle bisectors]

In $\triangle$ABC

=> $\theta$ + $\angle$ABC + $\angle$ACB = 180°

=> $\theta$ = 180° -2$(x+y)$ ———Eq. (1)

In $\triangle$BOC

=> $x + y + 124° = 180°$

=> $x + y = 56°$

Putting value of (x+y) in eq.  (1)

=> $\theta$ = $180 – 2*56 = 180-112 = 68°$

The perimeter of the triangle is given as 36 cm.

The triangle of a fixed perimeter will have the maximum possible area when all the sides are of equal length.

So each side should be of length 12 cm for the triangle to have maximum possible area(i.e. Equilateral triangle).

In this case the area will be,

$\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times a^2$

$\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\times12\times12$

$=36\sqrt{3}$ $cm^2$

Given, the angles of a triangle PQR are in the ratio 2:3:7

Let the angles of the triangle be 2x,3x and 7x.

Sum of the angles in a triangle = 180°

2x+3x+7x = 180°

12x = 180

x = 15°

The angles are 30°, 45°, 105°

Hence, option D is the correct answer. Given diameter = 56cm

radius OA = 56/2 = 28 and AB = 45cm

Now, in $\triangle$OAB right angle at A

OB = $\sqrt{(AB)^2 + (OA)^2}$

= $\sqrt{784+2025} = \sqrt{2809}$

= 53 cm

Given  $\angle P-\angle Q = 16^\circ \rightarrow (1)$
$\angle Q-\angle R = 28^\circ\rightarrow (2)$
From equation (1), $\angle Q = \angle P-16^\circ$
Substituting $\angle B$ value in equation (2)
$(\angle P-16)-\angle R = 28^\circ$
$\Rightarrow \angle R = \angle P-44^\circ$
We know that $\angle P+\angle Q+\angle R=180^\circ$
Substituting $\angle P,\angle Q,\angle R$ values in above equation
$\angle P+(\angle P-16^\circ)+(\angle P-44^\circ)=180^\circ$
$\Rightarrow 3\angle P=240^\circ$
$\angle P=80^\circ$
Substituting $\angle P$ value in equation (1)
$80^\circ-\angle Q=16^\circ$
$\Rightarrow \angle Q=64^\circ$
Substituting $\angle Q$ in equation (2)
$64^\circ-\angle R = 28^\circ$
$\Rightarrow \angle R = 36^\circ$
$\therefore \angle P=80^\circ, \angle Q=64^\circ, \angle R=36^\circ$
