# NCERT Class 9 Solutions: Triangles (Chapter 7) Exercise 7.1 – Part 4

Co-interior angles

When two lines are cut by a third line (transversal) co-interior angles are between the pair of lines on the same side of the transversal. If the lines are parallel the co-interior angles are supplementary (add up to 180 degrees).

Q-7 AB is a line segment and P is its mid-point. D and E are points on the same side of AB such that and (see Fig). Show that

Solution:

Given,P is mid-point of AB.

In , (P is mid-point of AB) (Given)Therefore, (By Angle-Side-Angle congruence condition.

2. (By corresponding Part of Congruent Triangles).

Q-8 In right triangle ABC, right angled at C, M is the mid-point of hypotenuse AB. C is joined to M and produced to a point D such that DM = CM. Point D is joined to point B (see Fig). Show that:

1. ΔAMC ≅ ΔBMD

2. ∠DBC is a right angle.

3. ΔDBC ≅ ΔACB

4. CM = 1/2 AB

Solution:

Given, right triangle ABC, right angled at C,M is the mid-point of hypotenuse AB.C is joined to M and produced to point D

M is the mid-point of AB and

1. In and (M is the mid-point) (Vertically opposite angles) (Given)

Therefore, (By Side-Angle-Side congruence condition).

2. (By Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles)Therefore, as alternate interior angles are equal.Now, (co-interiors angles)

3. In ΔDBC and ΔACB, (Common) (Right angles) (By Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles, already proved)

Therefore (By Side-Angle-Side congruence condition)

4. (M is mid-point)
