Q. 2

*ABC* is a triangle in which *BE* and *CF* are, respectively, the perpendiculars to the sides *AC* and *AB*. If *BE*=*CF*, prove that Δ*ABC* is isosceles.

Answer :

Given that ABC is a triangle in which BE and CF are perpendiculars to the side AC and AB respectively.

Such that,

BE = CF

We have to prove that, is isosceles triangle.

Now, consider

We have,

∠BFC = ∠CEB = 90^{o} (Given)

BC = CB (Given)

CF = BE (Given)

So, by RHS congruence rule, we have

∠FBC = ∠ECB (By c.p.c.t)

∠ABC = ∠ACB (By c.p.c.t)

AC = AB (Opposite sides of equal angles are equal in a triangle)

Therefore, is isosceles.
