In Figure , if \(\Delta \mathrm{ABE} \cong \Delta \mathrm{ACD}\), show that \(\Delta ADE \sim \Delta ABC\).


Text Solution



As we know if two triangles are congruent to each other;their corresponding parts are equal.

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.

This criterion is referred to as the SAS (Side–Angle–Side) similarity criterion for two triangles.


In \(\begin{align}\Delta ABE\,\,{\rm {and}}\,\Delta ACD \end{align}\)

\[\begin{align}& AE=AD\,\,(\because \Delta ABE\cong \Delta ACD\,\,\rm{given}).........(1) \\ & AB=AC\,\,(\because\Delta ABE\cong \Delta ACD\,\,\rm{given}).........(2) \\ \end{align}\]

Now Consider \(\Delta ADE,\,\,\Delta ABC\)

\[\begin{align} \frac{AD}{AB}&=\frac{AE}{AC}\qquad\,\text{from}\,\,(1)\,\And (2) \\  \rm{and}\quad\,\,\angle DAF&=\angle BAC\,\,\,\left( \text{Common}\,\text{angle} \right) \\  \Rightarrow\quad \Delta ADE&\sim{\ }\Delta ABC\left( \text{SAS}\,\text{criterion} \right) \\ \end{align}\]


Frequently Asked Questions

What are Class 10 NCERT Exemplars?
While getting good scores in school tests is a desirable outcome, it is not a reliable indicator of how strong your child’s math foundation really is. Many students who score well in school exams in their earlier years, might struggle with math in higher grades because of a weak foundation. At Cuemath, we evaluate your child’s grasp of math fundamentals, and take corrective actions immediately. Also, your child may have limited exposure in their school, and in most cases, may not feel challenged to learn more. Cuemath's customised learning plan ensures your child is challenged with varied difficulty levels of questions at every stage.
