In Fig. 6.56, PS is the bisector of QPR of Δ PQR. Prove that

Answer :

Construct a line segment RT parallel to SP which intersects the extended line segment QP at point T

Given: PS is the angle bisector of QPR.


QPS = SPR (i)

By construction,

SPR = PRT (As PS || TR, By interior alternate angles) (ii)

QPS = QTR (As PS || TR, By interior alternate angles) (iii)

Using these equations, we get:



By construction,

PS || TR

Basic Proportionality Theorem: If a line is parallel to a side of a triangle which intersects the other sides into two distinct points, then the line divides those sides in proportion.

By using basic proportionality theorem for ΔQTR,

Hence, Proved
