Hi Beamy!

We are happy to see the interest you are showing towards this section! Thank you for your response. However, due to a paucity of time we will not be able to immediately answer all your queries. We are providing the answer to questions (1) and (2).

**Q 1.**

Consider the ∆ABC, let AD be the bisector of ∠A and BD = CD. It is required to prove ∆ABC is an isosceles triangle i.e. AB = AC. For this draw a line from C parallel AD and extend BA. Let they meet at E.

It is given that

∠BAD = ∠CAD ... (1)

CE||AD

∴ ∠BAD = ∠AEC (Corresponding angles) ... (2)

And ∠CAD = ∠ACE (Alternate interior angles) ... (3)

From (1), (2) and (3)

∠ACE = ∠AEC

In ∆ACE, ∠ACE = ∠AEC

∴ AE = OAC (Sides opposite to equal angles) ... (4)

In ∆BEC, AD||CE and D is the mid-point of BC using converse of mid-point theorem A is the mid-point of BE.

∴ AB = AE

⇒ AB = AC [Using (4)]

In ∆ABC, AB = AC

∴ ∆ABC is an isosceles triangle.

Hence, proved

**Q 2.**

Consider the ∆ABC right angle at B and ∠BCA = BAC extend CB to D such that BD = BC. Join AD

Using angle sum property of triangle ABC

∠ABC + ∠BAC + ∠ACB = 180°

⇒ 90° + ∠BAC + 2∠BAC = 180°

⇒ 3∠BAC = 90°

⇒∠BAC = 30°

∴ ∠ACB = 2 × 30° = 60°

Similarly, it can be proved that ∠ADB = 60° and ∠BAD = 30°

∴ ∠CAD = 30° + 30° = 60°

In ∆ACD, ∠CAD = ∠ACD = ∠ADC = 60°

So, ∆ABC is an equilateral triangle.

∴ AC = CD = AD

It is know that the perpendicular drawn to a side from opposite vertex bisects the side

∴ CD = 2BC

⇒ AC = 2BC [CD = AC]

Hence, proved

Hope! This will help you.

Cheers!!!
