Few important concepts related to NCERT syllabus Class 9 Maths chapter 9 exercise 9.4 in order to solve this exercise are:

Parallelograms having the same base and are in between the same parallels have the same area, as because the height (distance between the two parallel lines) continues as before for the two parallelograms and they have same bases subsequently their regions are equivalent.

Triangle that has a same base or the equivalent base and are between same pair of parallel lines have equivalent area. This is on the grounds that we realize that the area of the triangle is a half of the result of base and height. Since the height (distance between the parallels) continues as before for the two triangles and they have same bases subsequently their area are equivalent.

Major questions in this exercise use a blend of at least two or more concepts.

**Areas Of Parallelograms And Triangles**Class 9 Chapter 9 Exercise: 9.1

** Q1 ** Parallelogram ABCD and rectangle ABEF are on the same base AB and have equal areas. Show that the perimeter of the parallelogram is greater than that of the rectangle.

** Answer: **

We have ||gm ABCD and a rectangle ABEF both lie on the same base AB such that, ** ar(||gm ABCD) = ar(ABEF) **

for rectangle, AB = EF

and for ||gm AB = CD

CD = EF

AB + CD = AB + EF ...........(i)

SInce BEC and AFD are right angled triangle

Therefore, AD > AF and BC > BE

(BC + AD ) > (AF + BE)...........(ii)

Adding equation (i) and (ii), we get

(AB + CD)+(BC + AD) > (AB + BE) + (AF + BE)

(AB + BC + CD + DA) > (AB + BE + EF + FA)

Hence proved, perimeter of ||gm ABCD is greater than perimeter of rectangle ABEF.

** Q2 ** In Fig. , D and E are two points on BC such that . Show that .

**Answer: **

In ABC, D and E are two points on BC such that BD = DE = EC

AD is the median of ABE, therefore,

area of ABD= area of AED...................(1)

AE is the median of ACD, therefore,

area of AEC= area of AED...................(2)

From (1) and (2)

area of ABD=area of AED= area of AEC

Hence proved.

** Q3 ** In Fig. , ABCD, DCFE and ABFE are parallelograms. Show that .

**Answer: **

Given,

ABCD is a parallelogram. Therefore, AB = CD & AD = BC & AB || CD .......(i)

Now, ADE and BCF are on the same base AD = BC and between same parallels AB and EF.

Therefore, ar ( ADE) = ar( BCF)

Hence proved.

** Q4 ** In Fig. , ABCD is a parallelogram and BC is produced to a point Q such that . If AQ intersects DC at P, show that . [ ** Hint ** : Join AC.]

**Answer: **

Given,

ABCD is a ||gm and AD = CQ. Join AC.

Since DQC and ACD lie on the same base QC and between same parallels AD and QC.

Therefore, ar( DQC) = ar( ACD).......(i)

Subtracting ar( PQC) from both sides in eq (i), we get

ar( DPQ) = ar( PAC).............(i)

Since PAC and PBC are on the same base PC and between same parallel PC and AB.

Therefore, ar( PAC) = ar( PBC)..............(iii)

From equation (ii) and eq (ii), we get

Hence proved.

** Q5 (i) ** In Fig. , ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If AE intersects BC at F, show that

[ ** Hint: ** Join EC and AD. Show that and , etc.]

** Answer: **

Let join the CE and AD and draw . It is given that ABC and BDE is an equilateral triangle.

So, AB =BC = CA = and D i sthe midpoint of BC

therefore,

(i) Area of ABC = and

Area of BDE =

Hence,

** Q5 (ii) ** In Fig. , ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If AE intersects BC at F, show that

[ ** Hint: ** Join EC and AD. Show that and , etc.]

**Answer: **

Since ABC and BDE are equilateral triangles.

Therefore, ACB = DBE =

BE || AC

BAE and BEC are on the same base BE and between same parallels BE and AC.

Therefore, ar ( BAE) = ar( BEC)

ar( BAE) = 2 ar( BED) [since D is the meian of BEC ]

Hence proved.

** Q5 (iii) ** In Fig. , ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If AE intersects BC at F, show that

[ ** Hint ** : Join EC and AD. Show that and , etc.]

**Answer: **

We already proved that,

ar( ABC) = 4.ar( BDE) (in part 1)

and, ar( BEC) = 2. ar( BDE) (in part ii )

ar( ABC) = 2. ar( BEC)

Hence proved.

** Q5 (iv) ** In Fig.9.33, ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If AE intersects BC at F, show that

[ ** Hint: ** Join EC and AD. Show that and , etc.]

**Answer: **

Since ABC and BDE are equilateral triangles.

Therefore, ACB = DBE =

BE || AC

BDE and AED are on the same base ED and between same parallels AB and DE.

Therefore, ar( BED) = ar( AED)

On subtracting EFD from both sides we get

Hence proved.

** Q5 (v) ** In Fig. , ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If AE intersects BC at F, show that

[ ** Hint ** : Join EC and AD. Show that and , etc.]

**Answer: **

So, in PED,

So,

Therefore, the Area of ..........(i)

And, Area of triangle ...........(ii)

From eq (i) and eq (ii), we get

ar( AFD) = 2. ar( EFD)

Since ar( AFD) = ar( BEF)

** Q5 (vi) ** In Fig. , ABC and BDE are two equilateral triangles such that D is the mid-point of BC. If AE intersects BC at F, show that

[ Hint: From A and C, draw perpendiculars to BD.]

** Answer: **

Given that,

A quadrilateral ABCD such that it's diagonal AC and BD intersect at P. Draw and

Now, ar( APB) = and,

Therefore, ar( APB) ar( CDP)=

....................(i)

Similarly, ar( APD) ar ( BPC) =

................(ii)

From eq (i) and eq (ii), we get

Hence proved.

** Q7 (i) ** P and Q are respectively the mid-points of sides AB and BC of a triangle ABC and R is the mid-point of AP, show that

** Answer: **

We have ABC such that P, Q and R are the midpoints of the side AB, BC and AP respectively. Join PQ, QR, AQ, PC and RC as shown in the figure.

Now, in APC,

Since R is the midpoint. So, RC is the median of the APC

Therefore, ar( ARC) = 1/2 . ar ( APC)............(i)

Also, in ABC, P is the midpoint. Thus CP is the median.

Therefore, ar( APC) = 1/2. ar ( ABC)............(ii)

Also, AQ is the median of ABC

Therefore, 1/2. ar ( ABC) = ar (ABQ)............(iii)

In APQ, RQ is the median.

Therefore, ar ( PRQ) = 1/2 .ar ( APQ).............(iv)

In ABQ, PQ is the median

Therefore, ar( APQ) = 1/2. ar( ABQ).........(v)

From eq (i),

...........(vi)

Now, put the value of ar( APC) from eq (ii), we get

Taking RHS;

(from equation (iii))

(from equation (v))

(from equation (iv))

Hence proved.

** Q7 (ii) ** P and Q are respectively the mid-points of sides AB and BC of a triangle ABC and R is the mid-point of AP, show that

** Answer: **

In RBC, RQ is the median

Therefore ar( RQC) = ar( RBQ)

= ar (PRQ) + ar (BPQ)

= 1/8 (ar ABC) + ar( BPQ) [from eq (vi) & eq (A) in part (i)]

= 1/8 (ar ABC) + 1/2 (ar PBC) [ since PQ is the median of BPC]

= 1/8 (ar ABC) + (1/2).(1/2)(ar ABC) [CP is the medain of ABC]

= 3/8 (ar ABC)

Hence proved.

** Q7 (iii) ** P and Q are respectively the mid-points of sides AB and BC of a triangle ABC and R is the mid-point of AP, show that

** Answer: **

QP is the median of ABQ

Therefore, ar( PBQ) = 1/2. (ar ABQ)

= (1/2). (1/2) (ar ABC) [since AQ is the median of ABC

= 1/4 (ar ABC)

= ar ( ARC) [from eq (A) of part (i)]

Hence proved.

Since congruent triangles have equal areas.

Therefore, By using equation (i) we get

Hence proved.

** Q8 (iii) ** In Fig. , ABC is a right triangle right angled at A. BCED, ACFG and ABMN are squares on the sides BC, CA and AB respectively. Line segment meets BC at Y. Show that:

** Answer: **

Since, ar (||gm BYXD) = 2 .ar ( MBC) ..........(i) [already proved in 2nd part]

and, ar (sq. ABMN) = 2. ar ( MBC)............(ii)

[Since ABMN and AMBC are on the same base MB and between same parallels MB and NC]

From eq(i) and eq (ii), we get

** Answer: **

[both 90]

By adding ABC on both sides we get

ABC + FCA = ABC + BCE ** FCB = ACE **

** In ** FCB and ACE

FC = AC [sides of square]

BC = AC [sides of square] ** FCB = ACE ** FCB ACE

Hence proved.

** Q8 (v) ** In Fig. , ABC is a right triangle right angled at A. BCED, ACFG and ABMN are squares on the sides BC, CA and AB respectively. Line segment meets BC at Y. Show that:

** Answer: **

Since ||gm CYXE and ACE lie on the same base CE and between the same parallels CE and AX.

Therefore, ** 2. ar( ACE) = ar (||gm CYXE) B ** ut, FCB ACE (in iv part)

Since the congruent triangle has equal areas. So,

Hence proved.

** Answer: **

Since ar( ||gm CYXE) = 2. ar( ACE) {in part (v)}...................(i)

Also, ** FCB and ** quadrilateral ACFG lie on the same base FC and between the same parallels FC and BG.

Therefore, ar (quad. ACFG) = 2.ar( ** FCB ** ) ................(ii)

From eq (i) and eq (ii), we get

Hence proved.

** Q8 (vii) ** In Fig. , ABC is a right triangle right angled at A. BCED, ACFG and ABMN are squares on the sides BC, CA and AB respectively. Line segment meets BC at Y. Show that:

** Answer: **

We have,
