Ex. 6.6 Q3 Triangles Solution - NCERT Maths Class 10

Go back to  'Ex.6.6'


In Fig. below, \(ABC\) is a triangle in which \(\Delta ABC > 90°\) and \(AD \perp CB\) produced.

Prove that:

\[A{C^2} = A{B^2} + B{C^2} + 2BC.BD\]

Ex 6.6 | Question 3

Text Solution


Pythagoras theorem


In \(\Delta ADC\)

\[\begin{align} \angle ADC &= {90^ \circ }\\ \Rightarrow A{C^2} &= A{D^2} + C{D^2}\\ &= A{D^2} + {\left[ {BD + BC} \right]^2}\\ &=\!\! \begin{bmatrix} A{D^2} + B{D^2} + B{C^2} \\+ 2BC \cdot BD \! \end{bmatrix} \\ A{C^2} &= \begin{bmatrix} A{B^2} + B{C^2} \\ + 2BC \cdot BD \end{bmatrix} \end{align}\]

Therefore, in

\[\begin{align}\angle ADB,\;A{B^2} = A{D^2} + B{D^2}\;\end{align}\]
