  1. 1. TrianglesTriangles By GEETU 10-B
  2. 2. • Basic Proportionality Theorem • Similarity Criteria • Area Theorem • Pythagoras Theorem What will you learn?
  3. 3. A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry.
  4. 4. BASIC PROPORTIONALITY THEOREM • Basic Proportionality Theorem states that if a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other 2 points , the other 2 sides are divided in the same ratio. • It was discovered by Thales , so also known as Thales theorem.
  5. 5. Proving The Thales’ Theorem
  6. 6. Converse of the Thales’ Theorem If a line divides any two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, then the line is parallel to the third side

  8. 8. Similarity Criteria Similarity Criteria's SSS ASA AA
  9. 9. • If in two triangles, corresponding angles are equal, then their corresponding sides are in the same ratio (or proportion) and hence the two triangles are similar. • In Δ ABC and Δ DEF if ∠ A=∠ D, ∠ B= ∠E and ∠ C =∠ F then Δ ABC ~ Δ DEF. AAA Similarity
  10. 10. • If in two triangles, sides of one triangle are proportional to (i.e., in the same ratio of ) the sides of the other triangle, then their corresponding angles are equal and hence the two triangles are similar. • In Δ ABC and Δ DEF if AB/DE =BC/EF =CA/FD then Δ ABC ~ Δ DEF. SSS Similarity
  11. 11. • If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of the other triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, then the two triangles are similar. • In Δ ABC and Δ DEF if AB/DE =BC/EF and ∠ B= ∠E then Δ ABC ~ Δ DEF. SAS Similarity
  12. 12. • The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides • It proves that in the figure given below Area Theorem
  13. 13. Proof Of Area Theorem
  14. 14. • If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse then triangles on both sides of the perpendicular are similar to the whole triangle and to each other • In a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. • In a right triangle if a and b are the lengths of the legs and c is the length of hypotenuse, then a² + b² = c². • It states Hypotenuse² = Base² + Altitude². • A scientist named Pythagoras discovered the theorem, hence came to be known as Pythagoras Theorem. Pythagoras Theorem
  15. 15. Pythagoras Theorem
  16. 16. ProofofPythagorasTheorem
  17. 17. In a triangle, if square of one side is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then the angle opposite the first side is a right angle. Converse of Pythagoras Theorem
  18. 18. ProofofConverseofPythagorasTheorem
  19. 19. • Two figures having the same shape but not necessarily the same size are called similar figures. • All the congruent figures are similar but the converse is not true. • Two polygons of the same number of sides are similar, if (i) their corresponding angles are equal and (ii) their corresponding sides are in the same ratio (i.e., proportion). • If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, then the other two sides are divided in the same ratio. • If a line divides any two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, then the line is parallel to the third side. Summary
  20. 20. • If in two triangles, corresponding angles are equal, then their corresponding sides are in the same ratio and hence the two triangles are similar (AAA similarity criterion). • If in two triangles, two angles of one triangle are respectively equal to If in two triangles, corresponding angles are equal, then their corresponding sides are in the same ratio and hence the two triangles are similar (AAA similarity criterion). • If in two triangles, two angles of one triangle are respectively equal to the two angles of the other triangle, then the two triangles are similar (AA similarity criterion). • If in two triangles, corresponding sides are in the same ratio, then their corresponding angles are equal and hence the triangles are similar (SSS similarity criterion). • If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of another triangle and the sides including these angles are in the same ratio (proportional), then the triangles are similar (SAS similarity criterion). • The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides. Summary
  21. 21. • If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse, then the triangles on both sides of the perpendicular are similar to the whole triangle and also to each other. • In a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides (Pythagoras Theorem). • If in a triangle, square of one side is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then the angle opposite the first side is a right angle.
