1 Similarity of Triangle Similarity of Triangle 17.1 INTRODUCTION Looking around you will see many objects which are of the same shape but of same or different sizes. For examples, leaves of a tree have almost the same shape but same or different sizes. Similarly, photographs of different sizes developed from the same negative are of same shape but different sizes, the miniature model of a building and the building itself are of same shape but different sizes. All those objects which have the same shape but different sizes are called similar objects. Let us examine the similarity of plane figures : (i) Two line-segments of the same length are congruent but of different lengths are similar. (ii) Two circles of the same radius are congurent but circles of different radii are similar. (iii) Two equilateral triangles of different sides are similar.

2 96 Mathematics (iv) Two squares of different sides are similar. In this lesson, we shall study about the concept of similarity, especially similarity of triangles and the conditions thereof. We shall also study about various results related to them. 17. OBJECTIVES After studying this lesson, the learner will be able to : identify similar figures distinguish between congurent and similar plane figures cite the criteria for similarity of triangles viz. AAA, SSS and SAS. verify and use unstarred results given in the curriculum based on similarity experimentally prove the Baudhayan/Pythagoras Theorem apply these results in verifying experimentally (or proving logically) problems based on similar triangles EXPECTED BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE Knowledge of plane figures like triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, rectangles, squares, etc. criteria of congruency of triangles finding squares and square-roots of numbers ratio and proportion internal and external bisectors of angles of a triangle SIMILAR PLANE FIGURES Fig. 17.

3 Similarity of Triangle 97 In Fig. 17., the two pentagon seem to be of the same shape. We can see that A A, B B, C C, D D and E E and AB BC CD DE EA AB ' ' BC ' ' CD ' ' DE ' ' EA ' '. We say that the two pentagons are similar. Thus we say that Any two polygons, with corresponding angles equal and corresponding sides proportional, are similar Thus, two polygons are similar, if they satisfy the following two conditions : (i) Corresponding angles are equal (ii) The corresponding sides are proportional. Even if one of the conditions does not hold, the polygons are not similar as in the case of a rectangle and square given in Fig Here all the corresponding angles are equal but the corresponding sides are not proportional. Fig SIMILARITY OF TRIANGLES Triangles are special type of polygons and therefore the conditions of similarity of polygons also hold for triangles. Thus, Two triangles are similar if (i) their corresponding angles are equal, and (ii) their corresponding sides are proportional Fig We say that ABC is similar to DEF and denote it by writing ABC ~ DEF

4 98 Mathematics The symbol ~ stands for the phrase is similar to If ABC ~ DEF, then by definition A D, B E, D F and AB DE AAA criterion for similarity BC EF We shall show that if either of the above two conditions is satisfied then the other automatically holds in the case of triangles. Let us perform the following experiment. Construct two s ABC and PQR in which P A, Q B and R C as shown in Fig CA FD Fig Measure the sides AB, BC and CA of ABC and also measure the sides PQ, QR and RP of PQR. Now find the ratio AB PQ, BC QR and CA RP. What do you find? You will find that all the three ratios are equal and therefore the triangles are similar. Try this with different triangles with equal corresponding angles. You will find the same result. Thus, we can say that If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal the triangles are similar. This is called AAA similarity criterion SSS criterion for similarity. Let us now perform the following experiment : Draw a triangle ABC with AB 3 cm, BC 4.5 cm and CA 3.5 cm

5 Similarity of Triangle 99 (i) (ii) Fig Draw another PQR as shown in Fig (ii) We can see that AB PQ BC QR AC PR i.e., the sides of the two triangles are proportional Now measure A, B and C of ABC and P, Q and R of PQR. You will find that A P, B Q and C R. Repeat the experiment with another two triangles having corresponding sides proportional, you will find that the corresponding angles are equal and so the triangle are similar. Thus, we can say that If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional the triangles are similar SAS Criterian for Similarity Let us conduct the following experiment. Take a line AB 3 cm and at A construct an angle of 60. Cut off AC 4.5 cm. Join BC Fig Now take PQ 6 cm. At P, draw an angle of 60 and cut off PR 9 cm. Measure B, C, Q and R. We shall find that B Q and C R Thus, ABC ~ PQR

6 100 Mathematics Thus, we conclude that If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of the other triangle and the sides containing these angles are proportional, the triangles are similar. Thus, we have three important criteria for the similarity of triangles. They are given below: (i) If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, the triangles are similar. (ii) If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, the triangles are similar. (iii) If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of the other triangle and the sides containing these angles are proportional, the triangle are similar. Example 17.1 : In Fig are given two triangles ABC and PQR Fig Is ABC ~ PQR? Solution : We are given that A P and B Q We also know that A + B + C P + Q + R 180 Thus, according to first criterion of similarity ABC ~ PQR. Example 17. : Fig In Fig. 17.9, ABC ~ PQR. If AC 4.8 cm, AB 4 cm and PQ 9 cm, find PR.

8 10 Mathematics 17.6 BASIC PROPORTIONALITY THEOREM We state below the Basic Proportionality Theorem : If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle, the other two sides of the triangle are divided proportionally. Thus, in Fig , DE BC, According to the above result AD DB AE EC We can easily verify this by measuring AD, DB, AE and EC. You will find that AD DB AE EC We state the converse of the above result as follows : Fig If a line divides any two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, the line is parallel to third side of the triangle. Thus, in Fig , if DE divides sides AB and AC of ABC such that AD AE, then DB EC DE BC. We can verify this by measuring ADE and ABC and finding that ADE ABC These being alternate angles, the lines DE and BC are parallel. We can verify the above two results by taking different triangles. Let us solve some examples based on these. Example 17.3 : In Fig , DE BC. If AD 3 cm, DB 5 cm and AE 6 cm, find AC. Solution : DE BC (Given). Let EC x AD DB AE EC x 3x 30 x10 EC 10 cm AC AE + EC 16 cm. Fig

AD DB 4 5 Similarly, AE EC According to converse of Basic Proportionality Theorem DE BC. 4 5 Fig CHECK YOUR PROGRESS In Fig (i), (ii) and (iii), PQ BC. Find the value of x in each case. Fig In Fig [(i), (ii) and (iii)], find whether DE is parallel to BC or not? Give reasons for your answer. Fig BISECTOR OF AN ANGLE OF A TRIANGLE We now state an important result as given below : The internal bisector of an angle of a triangle divides the opposite side in the ratio of sides containing the angle

10 104 Mathematics Thus, according to the above result, if AD is the internal bisector of A of ABC, then BD DC AB AC We can easily verify this by measuring BD, DC, AB and AC and finding the ratios. We will find that BD DC AB AC Repeating the same activity with other triangles, we may verify the result. Let us solve some examples to illustrate this. Example 17.5 : The sides AB and AC of a triangle are 6 cm and 8 cm. The bisector AD of A intersects the opposite side BC in D such that BD 4.5 cm. Find the length of segment CD. Solution : According to the above result, we have BD DC AB AC (Q AD is the internal bisector of A of ABC) Fig or 45. x 6 8 6x x6 i.e., the length of line-segment CD 6 cm. Fig Example 17.6 : The sides of a triangle are 8 cm, 36 cm and 48 cm. Find the lengths of the line-segments into which the smallest side is divided by the bisector of the angle opposite to it. Solution : The smallest side is of length 8 cm and the sides forming the angle. A opposite to it are 36 cm and 48 cm. Let the angle bisector AD meet BC in D. BD DC BD 3DC or BD 36 DC 3 DC 48 4 BC BD + DC 8 cm DC + 3 DC 8 4 Fig. 17.0

Fig In Fig. 17., PS is the internal bisector of P of PQR. The dimensions of some of the sides are given in Fig Find x. Fig In Fig. 17.3, RS is the internal bisector of R of PQR. For the given dimensions, express p, the length of QS in terms of x, y and z. Fig. 17.3

12 106 Mathematics 17.8 SOME MORE IMPORTANT RESULTS Let us study another important result on similarity in connection with a right triangle and the perpendicular from the vertex of the right angle to the opposite side. We state the result below and try to verify the same. If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse, the triangles on each side of the perpendicular are similar to each other and to the triangle. Let us try of verify this by an activity. Draw a ABC, right angled at A. Draw AD to the hypotenuse BC, meeting it in D. Let DBA α, As ADB 90, BAD 90 α As BAC 90 and BAD 90 α, Therefore DAC α Similarly, DCA 90 α ADB and CDA are similar, as it has all the corresponding angles equal. Also, the angles of BAC are α, 90 and 90 α ADB ~ CDA ~ CAB Another important result is about relation between sides and areas of similar triangles. It states that Fig The ratio of the areas of similar triangles is equal to the ratio of the squares on their corresponding sides Let us verify this result by the following activity. Draw two triangles ABC and PQR which are similar i.e., their sides are proportional. Fig. 17.5

Let us illustrate these results with the help of examples. Example 17.7 : Find the ratio of the area of two similar triangles if one pair of their corresponding sides are.5 cm and 5.0 cm.

If the ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is 16 : 5, find the ratio of their corresponding sides.

15 Similarity of Triangle BAUDHAYAN/PYTHAGORAS THEOREM We know prove an important theorem, called Baudhayan/Phythagorus Theorem using the concept of similarity. Theorem : In a right triangle, the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides. Given. A right triangle ABC, in which B 90. To Prove : AC AB + BC Construction. From B, draw BD AC (See Fig. 17.9) Proof : BD AC From (i), we get From (ii), we get ADB ~ ABC...(i) and BDC ~ ABC...(ii) AB AC AD AB AB AC.AD...(A) BC AC DC BC BC AC.DC...(B) Adding (A) and (B), we get AB + BC AC (AD + DC) AC. AC AC The theorem is known after the name of famous Greek Mathematician Pythagoras. This was originally stated by the Indian Mathematician. Baudhayan about 00 years before Pythagoras Converse of Pythagoras Theorem The conserve of the above theorem states : In a triangle, if the square on one side is equal to sum of the squares on the other two sides, the angle opposite to first side is a right angle. This result can be verified by the following activity. Draw a triangle ABC with side 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm. Fig i.e., AB 3 cm, BC 4 cm and AC 5 cm. You can see that AB + BC (3) + (4) Fig

16 110 Mathematics AC (5) 5 AB + BC AC The triangle in Fig satisfies the condition of the above result. Measure ABC, you will find that ABC 90. Construct triangles of sides 5 cm, 1 cm and 13 cm, and of sides 7 cm, 4 cm, 5 cm. You will again find that the angles opposite to side of length 13 cm and 5 cm are 90 each. Let us solve some examples using above results. Example 17.9 : In a right triangle, the sides containing the right angle are of length 5 cm and 1 cm. Find the length of the hypotenuse. Solution : Let ABC be the right triangle, right angled at B AB 5 cm, BC 1 cm Also, AC BC + AB (1) + (5) AC 13 i.e., the length of the hypotenuse is 13 cm. Example : Find the length of diagonal of a rectangle the lengths of whose sides are 3 cm and 4 cm. Solution : In Fig , is a rectangle ABCD. Join the diagonal BD. Now DCB is a right triangle. BD BC + CD BD 5 i.e., the length of diagonal of rectangle ABCD is 5 cm. Fig Example : In an equilateral triangle, verify that three times the square on one side is equal to four times the square on its altitude. Solution : The altitude AD BC and Let and Let BD CD AB BC CA a BD CD a AD x Fig. 17.3

Any two polygons, with corresponding angles equal and corresponding sides proportional, are similar. Two triangles are said to be similar, if (a) their corresponding angles are equal and (b) their corresponding sides are proportional Criteria of similarity AAA criterion SSS criterion SAS criterion If a line is drawn parallel to one-side of a triangle, it divides the other two sides in the same ratio and its converse.

19 Similarity of Triangle 113 The internal bisector of an angle of a triangle divides the opposite side in the ratio of sides containing the angle. If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right angled triangle to the hypotenuse, the triangles so formed are similar to each other and to the given triangle. The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of squares of their corresponding sides. In a right triangle, the square on the hypotenuse is equal to sum of the squares on the remaining two sides (Baudhyan) Pythagoras Theorem In a triangle, if the square on one side is equal to the sum of the squares on the remaining two sides, then the angle opposite to the first side is a right angle converse of (Baudhayan) Pythagoras Theorem.
