Q. 16

# Prove that, of al

It is given in the question that,

l is the straight line and A is a point that is not lying on l

AB is perpendicular to line l and C is the point on l

As, B = 90o

So in ∆ABC, we have:

A + B + C = 180o

A + B = 90o

C < 90o

C < B

AB < AC

As C is that point which can lie anywhere on l

AB is the shortest line segment drawn from A to l

Hence, proved
