E and F are points on the sides PQ and PR respectively, of a PQR. For each of the following cases, verify EF||QR.

PE = 4 cm, QE = 4.5 cm, PF = 8 cm and RF = 9cm.

Answer :

Given: E and F are points on the sides PQ and PR respectively, of a PQR. PE = 4 cm, QE = 4.5 cm, PF = 8 cm and RF = 9cm

Required: To verify if EF||QR


Consider the ΔPQR


Here, and


We can clearly see that


Converse Thales theorem is satisfied and EF||QR.


Yes, EF is parallel to QR(EF||QR)
