Q. 44.3( 36 Votes )

In the adjoining figure, the sides BA and CA have been produced such that BA = AD and CA = AE. Prove that DE || BC. [ hint:-use the concept of alternate angles.]


Answer :

In Δ AED and Δ ABC we have


BA = AD(Given)


CA = AE(Given)


EAD = BAC (Vertically Opposite)


So Δ AED and Δ ABC are congruent by S.A.S. axiom of congruency


So we can say


AED = ACB(Corresponding parts of Congruent triangles)


So AED & ACB forms a pair of alternate interior angles


Hence DE || BC
