Exercise 10.4

Q. 1. If two equal chords of a circle intersect; prove that the parts of one chord are separately equal to the parts of the other chord.

Q. 2. If non-parallel sides of a trapezium are equal, prove that it is cyclic.

Q. 3. If P, Q and R are the mid-points of the sides BC, CA and AB of a triangle and AD is the perpendicular from A on BC, prove that P, Q, R and D are concyclic.

Q. 4. ABCD is a parallelogram. A circle through A, B is so drawn that it intersects AD at P and BC at Q. Prove that P, Q, C and D are concyclic.

Q. 5. Prove that angle bisector of any angle of a triangle and perpendicular bisector of the opposite side if intersect, they will intersect on the circumcircle of the triangle.
