Q-3 If two equal chords of a circle intersect within the circle; prove that the line joining the point of intersection to the centre makes equal angles with the chords.

Solution: In Circle with Center O with AB and PQ Are Two Chords

Given,

• AB and PQ are chords intersecting at S.
• , CD is the diameter.

To prove,

Now, Construction,

• Draw And OS is joined.

In and ,

• (Equal chords are equidistant from the centre)
• (Common line)
• ( by construction)
• Therefore, (By Right Angle Hypotenuse congruence condition)

Therefore,

• by Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles
• (Same angle)

Q-4 If a line intersects two concentric circles (circles with the same centre) with centre O. A common chord intersects the circles at A, B, C and D, prove that AB = CD (see Fig.) . Two Concentric Circles with Centre O at a, B, C and D

Solution:

Given,

Two concentric circles, with centre at O and common chord intersecting at A, B, C and D Two Concentric Circle with Centre at O and Common Chord Intersecting at a, B, C and D

Now, since and is drawn from center O

• OM is bisects of AD as .
• … equation (1)

Since O is also the center of inner circle, therefore OM also bisects BC as .

• Therefore, … equation (2)

From (1) and (2) ,
