Congratulations - you have completed Geometry and Mensuration: Test 11.You scored %%SCORE%% out of %%TOTAL%%.You correct answer percentage: %%PERCENTAGE%% .Your performance has been rated as %%RATING%%
 Question 1
ABC is a right angled triangle, right angled at C and p is the length of the perpendicular from C on AB. If a, b and c are the lengths of the sides BC, CA and AB respectively, then
 A $\displaystyle \frac{1}{{{p}^{2}}}=\frac{1}{{{b}^{2}}}-\frac{1}{{{a}^{2}}}$ B $\displaystyle \frac{1}{{{p}^{2}}}=\frac{1}{{{a}^{2}}}+\frac{1}{{{b}^{2}}}$ C $\displaystyle \frac{1}{{{p}^{2}}}+\frac{1}{{{a}^{2}}}=\frac{1}{{{b}^{2}}}$ D $\displaystyle \frac{1}{{{p}^{2}}}=\frac{1}{{{a}^{2}}}-\frac{1}{{{b}^{2}}}$
Question 1 Explanation:

 Question 2
$\displaystyle \begin{array}{l}If\vartriangle ABC\text{ }is\text{ }similar\text{ }to\vartriangle DEF\text{ }such\text{ }that\text{ }BC=\text{ }3\text{ }cm,\text{ }\\EF=\text{ }4cm\text{ }and\text{ }area\text{ }of\vartriangle ABC=\text{ }54\text{ }c{{m}^{2}},\text{ }\\then\text{ }the\text{ }area\text{ }of\vartriangle DEF\text{ }is:\end{array}$
 A 66 cm2 B 78 cm2 C 96 cm2 D 54 cm2
Question 2 Explanation:
In case of similar triangles, the ratio of the areas of the triangles is equal to the square of the sides in proportion.
The ratio of the area of Î”ABCÂ  to Î”DEF = 32: 42 = Â 9:16
The Area of Î”DEF= (16/9)x54 = 96 cm2 Thus, the correct option (c)
 Question 3
$\displaystyle \begin{array}{l}In\,ABC,\angle A=\text{ }{{90}^{o}}and\,AD\bot BC\,where\text{ }D\text{ }lies\text{ }on\text{ }BC.\text{ }\\If\text{ }BC=\text{ }8\text{ }cm,\text{ }AC=\text{ }6cm,\text{ }\\then\,\vartriangle ABC:\,\vartriangle ACD=\text{ }?\end{array}$
 A 4: 3 B 25: 16 C 16: 9 D 25: 9
Question 3 Explanation:

From the figure the Î”ABC and Î”ACD are similar triangles by AAA similarity.
In case of similar triangles, the ratio of the areas of the triangles is equal to the square of the sides in proportion.
We have Î”ABC/Î”ACD =82/62= 16/9
 Question 4
The areas of two similar triangles ABC and DEF are 20 cm2 and 45 cm2 respectively. If AB= 5cm, then DE is equal to:
 A 6.5 cm B 7.5 cm C 8.5 cm D 5.5 cm
Question 4 Explanation:
In case of similar triangles, the ratio of the areas of the triangles is equal to the square of the sides in proportion.
Hence we have AB2 /DE2 = 20/45 = 4/9
AB/DE = 2/3
Now if AB = 5 cm, then DE = 5 x 3/2 = 7.5cm
 Question 5
 A 130o B 80o C 100o D 120o
Question 5 Explanation:

We have âˆ ABC + âˆ BAC + âˆ ACB = 1800
=> 5âˆ  ACB + 3âˆ ACB + âˆ  ACB = 1800
=> 9 âˆ  ACB = 1800
=>âˆ  ACB = 200
So âˆ  ABC = 5 âˆ  ACB = 5 Ã— 20 = 1000.
