**Question 1:Â **ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If the area of triangle ABC is 136 cm$^2$,

then the area of triangle BDE is equal to:

a)Â $36 cm^2$

b)Â $38 cm^2$

c)Â $24 cm^2$

d)Â $34 cm^2$

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

Let the side of the equilateral triangle ABC = a

$\Rightarrow$Â BC = a

D is the mid-point of BC

$\Rightarrow$Â BD = $\frac{a}{2}$

Side of the equilateral triangle BDE =Â $\frac{a}{2}$

Given, Area of the equilateral triangle ABC = 136 cm$^2$

$\Rightarrow$ Â $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}a^2=136$

$\therefore\ $Area of the equilateral triangle BDE =Â $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\left(\frac{a}{2}\right)^2$

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

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

$=\frac{1}{4}\times136$

$=$ 34 cm$^2$

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 2:Â **Two equilateral triangles of side $10\sqrt{3}$ cm are joined to form a quadrilateral. What is the altitude of the quadrilateral?

a)Â 12 cm

b)Â 14 cm

c)Â 16 cm

d)Â i5 cm

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

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

**Question 3:Â **The perimeters of two similar triangles ABC and PQRare 78 cm and 46.8 cm, respectively. If PQ = 11.7, then the length of AB is:

a)Â 19.5 cm

b)Â 23.4 cm

c)Â 24 cm

d)Â 20 cm

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

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

**Question 4:Â **The sides of an isosceles triangles are 10 cm, 10 cm and 12 cm. What is the area of the triangle?

a)Â 60 $cm^2$

b)Â 48 $cm^2$

c)Â 40 $cm^2$

d)Â 44 $cm^2$

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

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.

**Question 5:Â **Give that the ratio of altitudes of two triangles is 4 : 5, ratio of their areas is 3: 2. The ratio of their corresponding bases is

a)Â 8:15

b)Â 5:8

c)Â 15:8

d)Â 8:5

**5)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

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

**Question 6:Â **Equilateral triangles are drawn on the hypotenuse and one of the perpendicular sides of a right-angled isosceles triangles. Their areas are H and A respectively. $\frac{A}{H}$ is equal to:

a)Â $\frac{1}{4}$

b)Â $\frac{1}{\sqrt[2]{2}}$

c)Â $\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$

d)Â $\frac{1}{2}$

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

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

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

**Question 7:Â **There is a polygon of 11 sides. How many triangles can be drawn by only using the vertices of the polygon?

a)Â 180

b)Â 150

c)Â 165

d)Â 175

**7)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

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

**Question 8:Â **The ratio of the areas of two triangles ABC and PQR is 4: 5 and the ratio of their heights is 5 : 3. The ratio of the bases of triangle ABC to that of triangle PQR is:

a)Â 25 : 12

b)Â 12 : 25

c)Â 11 : 15

d)Â 15 : 11

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

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

**Question 9:Â **The ratio of the areas of two triangles ABC and PQR is 3 : 5 and the ratio of their heights is 5 : 3. The ratio of the bases of triangle ABC to that of triangle PQR is:

a)Â 25 : 9

b)Â 9 : 25

c)Â 2 : 1

d)Â 1 : 1

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

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 $B_{1}:B_{2} = 9:25$

**Question 10:Â **The ratio of the area of two triangles is 2 : 3 and ratio of their height is 3 : 2. The ratio of their bases is:

a)Â 3:2

b)Â 4:9

c)Â 9:4

d)Â 2:3

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

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)

**Question 11:Â **The ratio of the areas of two triangles is 1 : 2 and the ratio of their bases is 3 : 4. What will be the ratio of their height?

a)Â 1 : 3

b)Â 4 : 3

c)Â 2 : 1

d)Â 2 : 3

**11)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

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.

**Question 12:Â **$PQRS$ is a square whose side is $20 cm$. By joining opposite vertices of $PQRS$ are get four triangles. What is the sum of the perimeters of the four triangles?

a)Â $40\surd2$

b)Â $80\surd2 + 80$

c)Â $40\surd2 + 40$

d)Â $40\surd2 + 80$

**12)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

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.

**Question 13:Â **In the given figure. $ABCDEF$ is a regular hexagon whose side is 6 cm. $APF, QAB, DCR$ and $DES$ are equilateral triangles. What is the area (in $cm^2$) of the shaded region?

a)Â $24\surd3$

b)Â $18\surd3$

c)Â $72\surd3$

d)Â $36\surd3$

**13)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

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

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

d)Â $\triangle BAC \sim\triangle PMN$

**17)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

According to angle sum propertyÂ : $\angle$ C = $50^\circ$ andÂ $\angle$ N = $80^\circ$

Now, in $\triangle$ ABC andÂ $\triangle$Â Â MNP,

$\angle$ A =Â $\angle$Â N = $80^\circ$

The remaining 2 angles are equal to $50^\circ$, thus either $\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â P orÂ $\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â M

ButÂ $\angle$Â A is corresponding toÂ $\angle$Â N.

Thus,Â $\triangle BAC \sim\triangle MNP$

=> Ans – (B)

$\therefore$Â $\frac{ar(\triangle DBC)}{ar(\triangle ABC)}=\frac{\frac{1}{2}\times(DB)\times(BC)}{\frac{1}{2}\times(AB)\times(BC)}$

= $\frac{4\times6}{8\times6}=\frac{1}{2}$

=> Ans – (C)

SolutionÂ : The given triangles are equiangular, i.e.Â $\angle$Â A =Â $\angle$Â P ,Â $\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â Q ,Â $\angle$Â C =Â $\angle$Â R

Now, inÂ $\triangle$Â ABD and $\triangle$ PQS,

$\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â Q

$\angle$Â BAD =Â $\angle$Â QPS Â Â [$\because$ $\angle$Â A = $\angle$Â P => $\frac{1}{2}$ $\angle$ A = $\frac{1}{2}$ $\angle$ P =>Â $\angle$Â BAD =Â $\angle$Â QPS]

So, by A-A criterion of similarity, we have :

$\triangle$ ABD $\sim$ $\triangle$ PQS

=> $\frac{AB}{PQ}=\frac{AD}{PS}=\frac{3}{2}$

=> Ans – (B)

**Question 21:Â **Which of the following is the CORRECT option for the triangles having sides in the ratio of 3:4:6?

a)Â Acute angled

b)Â Obtuse angled

c)Â Right angled

d)Â Either acute or right angled

**21)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Let the sides of $\triangle$ ABC be $a,b,c$, where the largest side = $’c’$

If $c^2=a^2+b^2$, then the angle at $C$ is right angle.

If $c^2<a^2+b^2$, then the angle at $C$ is acute angle.

If $c^2>a^2+b^2$, then the angle at $C$ is obtuse angle.

Now, according to ques, => $6^2=36$

and $3^2+4^2=9+16=25$

$\therefore c^2>a^2+b^2$, hence it is an obtuse angled triangle.

=> Ans – (B)
