Chapter 4: Linear Equations in Two Variables
An equation of the form, ax + by + c = 0, where a, b, and c are real numbers, such that a and
b are both not zero, is called a linear equation in two variables.
For example, 2x + 3y + 10 = 0, 3x + 7y = 0
Equations of the form, ax + b = 0 or cy + d = 0, are also examples of linear equations in
two variables since they can be written as ax +0. y + b = 0 or 0.x + cy + d = 0
respectively.
Solution of a linear equation in two variables
A solution of a linear equation represents a pair of values, one for x and one for y which
satisfy the given equation.
Linear equation in one variable has a unique solution.
Linear equation in two variables has infinitely many solutions.
Geometrical representation of a linear equation in two variables
The geometrical representation of the equation, ax + by + c = 0, is a straight line.
For example: the equation x + 3y = 6 can be represented on a graph paper as follows:
An equation of the form, y = mx, represents a line passing through the origin.
Every point on the graph of a linear equation in two variables is a solution of the linear
equation. Every solution of the linear equation is a point on the graph of the linear
equation.
Equation of lines parallel to the x-axis and y-axis
The graph of x = a is a straight line parallel to the y-axis.
2.
The graph of y = b is a straight line parallel to the x-axis.
Chapter 8: Quadrilaterals
The sum of all the interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.
In the following quadrilateral ABCD, A + B + C + D = 360°.
Classification of quadrilaterals
Classification of parallelograms
Diagonals of a parallelogram divide it into two congruent triangles.
If ABCD is a parallelogram, then ABC CDA
In a parallelogram,
opposite sides are parallel and equal
opposite angles are equal
adjacent angles are supplementary
3.
diagonals bisect each other
A quadrilateral is a parallelogram, if
each pair of opposite sides is equal
each pair of opposite angles is equal
diagonals bisect each other
a pair of opposite sides is equal and parallel
Properties of some special parallelograms
Diagonals of a rectangle are equal and bisect each other.
Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.
Diagonals of a square are equal and bisect each other at right angles.
Mid-point theorem and its converse
Mid-point theorem
The line segment joining the mid-point of any two sides of a triangle is parallel to the
third side and is half of it.
In ABC, if D and E are the mid-points of sides AB and AC respectively, then by the
BC
.
mid-point theorem, DE||BC and DE

Converse of the mid-point theorem
A line through the mid-point of one side of a triangle parallel to the other side bisects the
third side.
In the given figure, if AP = PB and PQ||BC, then PQ bisects AB i.e., Q is the mid-point
of AC.
The quadrilateral formed by joining the mid-points of the sides of a quadrilateral is a
parallelogram.

Chapter 9: Areas of Parallelograms and Triangles
Two congruent figures have equal areas, but the converse is not true.
If a figure is formed by two non-overlapping regions A and B, then the area of the figure =
Area (A) + Area (B).
Two figures lie on the same base and between the same parallels if they have a common base
and if the opposite vertex (or side) lies on a line parallel to the base.
For example:
In the first figure, parallelograms ABCE and ABDF lie on the same base AB and between the
same parallels AB and CF.
In the second figure, parallelogram ABCE and triangle ABD lie on the same base but they do
not lie between the same parallels.
Parallelograms on the same (or equal) base and between the same parallels are equal in area.
Its converse is also true, i.e., parallelograms on the same base and having equal areas lie
between the same parallels.
The area of a parallelogram is the product of its base and the corresponding height.
Areas of parallelogram and triangle on the same base
If a parallelogram and a triangle lie on the same (or equal) base and between the same
parallels, then the area of the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram.
If a parallelogram and a triangle lie on the same base and the area of the triangle is half
the area of the parallelogram, then the triangle and the parallelogram lie between the
same parallels.
Triangles on the same base and between the same parallels
Triangles on the same base (or equal base) and between the same parallels are equal in
area.
Triangles having the same base and equal areas lie between the same parallels.
The median of a triangle divides it into two congruent triangles.
5.
Thus, a median of a triangle divides it into two triangles of equal area.
Chapter 10: Circles
Two or more circles are said to be congruent if they have the same radii.
Two or more circles are said to be concentric if their centre’s lie at the same point.
Angle subtended by chords at the centre
Chords that are equal in length subtend equal angles at the centre of the circle.
Chords subtending equal angles at the centre of the circle are equal in length.
Perpendicular from the centre to a chord
The perpendicular from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord.
The line joining the centre of the circle to the mid-point of a chord is perpendicular to the
chord.
Perpendicular bisector of a chord always passes through the centre of the circle.
At least three points are required to construct a unique circle.
Equal chords and their distances from the centre
Equal chords of a circle (or congruent circles) are equidistant from the centre.
Chords which are equidistant from the centre of a circle are equal in length.
Angle subtended by an arc of a circle
Two or more chords are equal if and only if the corresponding arcs are congruent.
The angle subtended by an arc at the centre of the circle is double the angle subtended by
the arc at the remaining part of the circle.
For example:
Here, AXB is the angle subtended by arc AB at the remaining part of the circle.
AOB = 2 AXB

Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal.
6.
PRQ and PSQ lie in the same segment of a circle.
PRQ = PSQ
Angle in a semicircle is a right angle.
Concyclic points
A set of points that lie on a common circle are known as concyclic points.
Here, A, B, D, and E are concyclic points.
If a line segment joining two points subtends equal angles at the two points lying on the
same side of the line segment, then the four points are concyclic.
For example:
Here, if ACB = ADB, then points A, B, C, and D are concyclic.
Cyclic quadrilaterals
A cyclic quadrilateral is a quadrilateral if all four vertices of the quadrilateral lie on a
circle.
Here, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.
7.
The sum of each pair of opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral is 180.
If the sum of a pair of opposite angles of a quadrilateral is 180, then the quadrilateral is
cyclic.
The quadrilateral formed by the angle bisectors of interior angles of any quadrilateral is a
cyclic quadrilateral.
Non-parallel sides of a cyclic trapezium are equal in length.
Chapter 11: Constructions
When the base, base angle, and the sum of other two sides of a triangle are given, the
triangle can be constructed as follows.
Let us suppose base BC, B, and (AB + AC) are given.
Steps of construction:
(1) Draw BC and make an angle, B, at point B.
(2) Draw an arc on BX, which cuts it at point P, such that BP (= AB + AC).
(3) Join PC and draw its perpendicular bisector. Let this perpendicular bisector intersect BP
at A.
Thus, ABC is the required triangle.
When the base, base angle, and the difference between the other two sides of the
triangle are given, the triangle can be constructed as follows.
Let us suppose base BC, B, and (AB – AC) are given.
Steps of construction:
(1) Draw BC and make an angle, B, at point B.
(2) Draw an arc on BX, which cuts it at point P, such that BP (= AB – AC).
(3) Join PC and draw its perpendicular bisector. Let this perpendicular bisector intersect BX
at point A. Join AC.
8.
Thus, ABC is the required triangle.
When the base BC, B, and (AC – AB) are given, the triangle can be constructed as
follows:
(1) Draw base BC and B.
(2) Draw an arc, which cuts extended BX on opposite side of BC at point Q, such that
BQ = (AC – AB).
(3) Join QC and draw its perpendicular bisector. Let this perpendicular bisector intersect BX
at point A. Join AC.
Thus, ABC is the required triangle.
When the perimeter and two base angles of the triangle are given, the triangle can be
constructed as follows.
Let us suppose that base angle, B, and C of ABC are given.
Steps of construction:
(1) Draw a line segment PQ of length equal to the perimeter of the triangle and draw the base
angles at points P and Q.
(2) Draw the angle bisectors of P and Q. Let these angle bisectors intersect each other at
point A.
(3) Draw the perpendicular bisectors of AP and AQ. Let these perpendicular bisectors
intersect PQ at points B and C respectively. Join AB and AC.
9.
Thus, ABC is the required triangle.

Solution:
For this data, histogram can be drawn by taking class intervals along x-axis and frequency
along y-axis and then drawing bars parallel to y-axis.
The histogram for this data is as follows.
13.
If the class intervals are not of uniform width, then in the histogram, the length of bars is
equal to adjusted frequencies. For example, consider the following data.

For example, tossing a coin is an experiment.
15.
Outcome: An outcome is the result of an experiment.
For example, getting a head on tossing a coin is an outcome.
Sample space: The set of all possible outcomes of an experiment is called sample space.
The sample space of the experiment of throwing a die is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}.
Event: An event is the set of one or more outcomes of an experiment.

280 times, what is the probability of getting head on the upper face of the coin?
Solution: Let A be the event of getting head on the upper face of the coin.
Total number of trials = 500
Number of trials in which tail comes up = 280
Number of trials in which head comes up = 500 – 280 = 220
