# 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)
