## NCERT solutions for Class 9 Maths Chapter 10 Circles: Exercise 10.2

### Question 1. Recall that two circles are congruent if they have the same radii. Prove that equal chords of congruent circles subtend equal angles at their centres.

**Solution:**

Given:

Two Congruent Circles

andC1C2

is the chord of C1ABand

is the chord of C2PQAB = PQ

To Prove: Angle subtended by the Chords AB and PQ are equal i.e. âˆ AOB = âˆ PXQ

Proof:In â–³AOB & â–³PXQ

AO = PX (Radius of congruent circles are equal)

BO = QX (Radius of congruent circles are equal)

AB = PQ (Given)

â–³AOB â© â–³PXQ (SSS congruence rule)

Therefore, âˆ AOB = âˆ PXQ (CPCT)

### Question 2. Prove that if chords of congruent circles subtend equal angles at their centres, then the chords are equal.

**Solution: **

Given:

Two Congruent circles C1 and C2

AB is the chord of C1 and PQ is chord of C2

& âˆ AOB = âˆ PXQ

To prove :

In â–³AOB and â–³PXQ ,

AO = PX (Radius of congruent circles are equal)

âˆ AOB = âˆ PXQ (Given)

BO = QX (Radius of congruent circles are equal)

â–³AOB â© â–³PXQ (SAS congruence rule)

Therefore, AB = PQ (CPCT)

### Question 1. Draw different pairs of circles. How many points does each pair have in common? What is the maximum number of common points?

** Solution**:

(i) Two points common

(ii) One point common

(iii) One point common

(iv) No point common

(v) No point commonAs we can analyse from above, two circles can cut each other maximum at two points.

### Question 2. Suppose you are given a circle. Give a construction to find its centre.

**Solution:**

Let the circle be C1

We need to find its centre.

Take points P, Q, R on the circleStep 1:

Join PR and RQ.Step 2:We know that perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through centre

So, we construct perpendicular bisectors of PR and RQ

Take a compass. With point P as pointy end and R as pencil end of the compass, mark an arc above and below PR. Do same with R as pointy end P as pencil end of the compass.Step 3:

Join points intersected by the arcs.Step 4:The line formed is the perpendicular bisector of PR.

Take compass, with point R as pointy end and Q as pencil end of the compass mark an arc above and below RQ.Step 5:Do the same with Q as pointy end and R as pencil end of the compass

Join the points intersected by the arcs.Step 6:The line formed is the perpendicular bisector of RQ.

The point where two perpendicular bisectors intersect is the centre of the circle. Mark it as point O.Step 7:Thus, O is the centre of the given circle.

### Question 3: If two circles intersect at two points, prove that their centres lie on the perpendicular bisector of the common chord.

**Solution:**

Given,

Let circle C1 have centre O and circle C2 have centre X, PQ is the common chord.

OX is the perpendicular bisector of PQ i.e.To prove:1. PR = RQ

2. âˆ PRO = âˆ PRX = âˆ QRO = âˆ QRX = 90Â°

Construction:Join PO, PX, QO, QX

Proof:In â–³POX and â–³QOX

OP = OQ (Radius of circle C1)

XP = XQ (Radius of circle C2)

OX = OX (Common)

âˆ´ â–³POX â‰… â–³QOX (SSS Congruence rule)

âˆ POX = âˆ QOX (CPCT) —-(1)

Also,

In â–³POR and â–³QOR

OP = OQ (Radius of circle C1)

âˆ POR = âˆ QOR ( From (1))

OR = OR (Common)

âˆ´ â–³OPX â‰… â–³OQX (SAS Congruence Rule)

PR = QR (CPCT)

& âˆ PRO = âˆ QRO (CPCT) —-(2)

Since PQ is a line

âˆ PRO + âˆ QRO = 180Â° (Linear Pair)

âˆ PRO + âˆ PRO= 180Â° ( From (2))

2âˆ PRO = 180Â°

âˆ PRO = 180Â° / 2

âˆ PRO = 90Â°

Therefore,

âˆ QRO = âˆ PRO = 90Â°

Also,

âˆ PRX = âˆ QRO = 90Â° (Vertically opposite angles)

âˆ QRX = âˆ PRO = 90Â° (Vertically opposite angles)

Since, âˆ PRO = âˆ PRX = âˆ QRO = âˆ QRX = 90Â°

âˆ´ OX is the perpendicular bisector of PQ

âˆ 1+90Â°=âˆ 2+90Â°

âˆ 1+âˆ EDC=âˆ 2+FCD

âˆ ADC=âˆ BCD

âˆ D=âˆ C 2

Now,

âˆ A+âˆ A+âˆ C+âˆ C=360Â°

2âˆ A+2âˆ C=360Â°

2(âˆ A+âˆ C)=360Â°

âˆ A+âˆ C=360Â°/2=190Â°

âˆ A=âˆ C [opposite angle of ||gm]

âˆ´âˆ A=âˆ C=(180Â°)/2=90Â°

âˆ A=90Â°

âˆ C=90Â°

Similarly,

âˆ B+âˆ D=180Â°

âˆ´âˆ B=âˆ D =(180Â°)/2=90Â° ———-[opposite of a ||gm]

Each angle of ABCD is 90Â°

âˆ B=90Â°

âˆ D=90Â°

Thus, ABCD is a rectangle.

**Question 3. The lengths of two parallel chords of a circle are 6 cm and 8 cm. If the smaller chord is at distance 4 cm from the center, what is the distance of the other chord from the centre?**

**Solution:**

Let AB and CD are|| chord of circle with centre O which AB=6cm and CD=8cm and radius of circle =r cm.

Construction: Draw OP perpendicular AB and OM perpendicular CD.

Because AB||CD and OP perpendicular AB and OM perpendicular CD therefore. Point O, M and P are collinear.

Clearly, OP=4cm ———-[According to question]

OM=to find?

P is midpoint of AB.

âˆ´AP=1/2 AB=1/2*6=3cm

M is midpoint of AB.

CM=1/2 CD=1/2*8cm=4cm

Join AO and CO

Now in Right âˆ†OPA,

r

^{2}=AP^{2}+PO^{2}r

^{2}=3^{2}+4^{2}r

^{2}=9+16=25Now in âˆ†OMC

r

^{2}=CM^{2}+MO^{2}25=4

^{2}+MO^{2}25-16=MO

^{2}9=MO

^{2}âˆš9=MO

3=MO

âˆ´Therefore distance of the other chord from the centre is 3cm

Give: Vertex B of âˆ†ABC lie outside the circle,chord AD=CE

To prove: âˆ ABC=1/2(âˆ DOE-âˆ AOC)

Construction: Join AE

Solution: Chord DE subtends âˆ DOE at the center and âˆ DAE at point A on the circle.

âˆ´âˆ DAE=1/2âˆ DOE ———-1

chords AC subtends âˆ AOC at the centre and âˆ AEC at point

âˆ´âˆ AEC=1/2âˆ AOC ———2

In âˆ† ABE,âˆ DAE is exterior angle

âˆ DAE=âˆ ABC +âˆ AEC

1/2âˆ DOE=âˆ ABC+1/2âˆ AOC

Â½(âˆ DOE-âˆ AOC)= âˆ ABC

To prove: AE=AD

Proof: Here ABCE is a cyclic quadrilateral

âˆ 2+âˆ 4=180Â° —–[sum of opposite is of a cyclic quadrilateral is 180Â°]

âˆ 4=180Â°-âˆ 1 ——-1

Now âˆ 4+âˆ 6=180Â°-âˆ 6 ———2

From 1 and 2

180Â°-âˆ 2=âˆ 180Â°-âˆ 6

âˆ 2=âˆ 6 ———–3

Also âˆ 2=âˆ 5 ———[opposite angles of ||gm are equal] —–4

From 3 and 4

âˆ 5=âˆ 6

Now, In âˆ†ADE,

âˆ 5=âˆ 6

similarly âˆ†AODâ‰…âˆ†COB (S.A.S)

AD=CD (C.P.C.T.) 2

From 1 and 2 ABCD is a ||gm

Since, ABCD is cyclic quadrilateral

âˆ´âˆ A+âˆ C=180Â°

âˆ B+âˆ B=180Â°

2âˆ B=180Â°

âˆ B=180Â°/2

âˆ B=90Â°

âˆ´ âˆ A and âˆ B lies in a semicircle

â†’ AC and BD are diameter of circle.

ii) Since ABCD is a ||gm and âˆ A=90Â°

âˆ´ ABCD is a rectangle.

âˆ ADF=âˆ ACF ———–2 [angle in the same segment are equal]

Adding 1 and 2

âˆ ADE+âˆ ABF=âˆ ABE+âˆ ACF

âˆ D=1/2âˆ B+1/2âˆ C ——[BC and CF are bisector of âˆ B & âˆ c]

âˆ D=1/2(âˆ B+âˆ C)

âˆ D=1/2(180Â°-âˆ A)

âˆ D=1/2(180Â°-âˆ A)

âˆ D=90Â°-1/2âˆ AC

âˆ BOC=2âˆ BAC ——-1

Now, In âˆ†BOE and âˆ† COE

BO=OE ——–(radii of the same circle)

BE=CE —–(give)

âˆ´âˆ†BOEâ‰…COE ——-(S.S.S)

âˆ 1=âˆ 2 ——-(c.p.c.t)

Now,

âˆ 1+âˆ 2=âˆ BOC

2âˆ 1=âˆ BOC

2âˆ 1=2âˆ BAC ———- (from 1)

âˆ 1=âˆ BAC

âˆ BOE=âˆ BAF
