Triangles: Notes and Questions

Mathematics is one of the most important that is asked in the government recruitment exams. Generally, there are questions asked related to basic concepts and formulas of trigonometry. To let you make the most of the Mathematics section, we are providing important notes related to triangle. Also, many central and state exams are nearby with bunches of posts for the interested candidates in which Mathematics is a major part. We have covered important notes and questions focusing on these prestigious exams. We wish you all the best of luck to come over the fear of the Mathematics section.

Triangles: Notes and Questions_130.1


By geometry, we know that BD/DC = AB/AC (since AD bisects ÐA).
The lengths of the sides AB, BC and AC are c, a and b respectively, then BD/DC = AB/AC = c/b.
Coordinates of D are (bx2+cx3/b+c, by2+cy3/b+c)
IB bisects DB. Hence ID/IA = BD/BA = (ac/b+c)/c = a/c+b.
Let the coordinates of I be (x, y).
Then x = ax1+bx2+cx3/a+b+c, y = ay1+by2+cy3/a+b+c.

Q. If (0, 1), (1, 1) and (1, 0) are middle points of the sides of a triangle, find its incentre.


Let A(x1, y1), B(x2, y2) and C(x3, y3)be teh vertices of a triangle.
x1 + x2 = 0, x2 + x= 0, x3 + x1 = 0
y1 + y2 = 0, y2 + y3 = 0, y3 + y1 = 0.
Solving these equations, we get A(0, 0), B(0, 2) and C(2, 0).
Now, a = BC = 2√ 2, b = CA = 2 and c = AB = 2.
Thus, incentre of the triangle ABC is (2-√ 2, 2-√ 2).

Q. If midpoints of the sides of a triangle are (0, 4), (6, 4) and (6, 0), then find the vertices of triangle, centroid and circumcentre of triangle.

Triangles: Notes and Questions_140.1Solution:

Let points A (x1, y1), B (x2, y2) and C (x3, y3) be vertices of ΔABC.
x1 + x3 = 0 , y1 + y3 = 8
x2 + x3 = 12 , y2 + y3 = 8
x1 + x2 = 12, y1 + y2 = 0
Solving we get A (0, 0), B (12, 0) and C (0, 8)
Hence ΔABC is right angled triangle. ∠A = π/2
Circumcentre is midpoint of hypotenuse which is (6, 4) itself and centroid
(x1+x2+x3)/3 , (y1+y2+y3)/3 = (4 , 8/3)
