Q-7 ABCD is a rhombus. Show that diagonal bisects as well as and

Diagonal BD bisects as well as .

Solution:

Given,

- ABCD is a rhombus
- AC and BD are its diagonals.

Proof,

- (Sides of a rhombus are equal)
- … equation (1) (Angles opposite of equal sides of a triangle are equal.)
- Also, , therefore, … equation (2) (Alternate interior angles)

From equation (1) and (2) ,

Therefore, AC bisects .

Similarly,

- (Sides of a rhombus are equal)
- … equation (3) (Angles opposite of equal sides of a triangle are equal.)

Also, and so … equation (4) (Alternate interior angles)

From Equation (3) and (4)

Therefore, AC bisects .

Similarly, diagonal BD bisects as well as .

Q-8 ABCD is a rectangle in which diagonal bisects as well as . Show that:

- ABCD is a square
- Diagonal BD bisects ∠ B as well as ∠ D.

Solution:

- Given ABCD is a rectangle, AC is bisects, as well as

Solution (i) :

- (AC bisects as well as )
- (Sides opposite to equal angles of a triangle are equal)
- Also, (Opposite sides of a rectangle)
- Therefore,
- Thus, ABCD is a square.

Solution (ii) :

- (Angles opposite to equal sides are equal)
- Also, (Alternate interior angles) therefore,
- Thus, BD bisects

Now,

Thus, BD bisects
