Q. 144.4( 5 Votes )

In the adjoining figure, AD is the bisector of BAC. If AB = 10 cm, AC = 6 cm, BC = 12 cm, find BD.


Answer :

Given: AD is the bisector of BAC


and by Angle-Bisector theorem which states that if a ray bisects an angle of a triangle, then it divides the opposite side into segments that are proportional to the other two sides.











And BC – CD = DB


12 – 4.5 = DB


DB = 7.5cm
