## Circles Exercise Ex. 9.1

### Solution 1

A circle is a collection of points which are equidistant from a fix point. This fix point is called as the centre of circle and this equal distance is called as radius of circle. And thus shape of a circle depends on the radius of the circle.

So, if we try to superimpose two circles of equal radius, one each other both circles will cover each other.

So, two circles are congruent if they have equal radius.

So, if we try to superimpose two circles of equal radius, one each other both circles will cover each other.

So, two circles are congruent if they have equal radius.

Now consider two congruent circles having centre O and O' and two chords AB and CD of equal lengths

Now in AOB and CO'D

AB = CD (chords of same length)

OA = O'C (radii of congruent circles)

OB = O'D (radii of congruent circles)

AOB CO'D (SSS congruence rule)

AB = CD (chords of same length)

OA = O'C (radii of congruent circles)

OB = O'D (radii of congruent circles)

AOB CO'D (SSS congruence rule)

AOB = CO'D (by CPCT)

Hence equal chords of congruent circles subtend equal angles at their centres.

### Solution 2

Let us consider two congruent circles (circles of same radius) with centres as O and O'.

In AOB and CO'D

AOB = CO'D (given)

OA = O'C (radii of congruent circles)

OB = O'D (radii of congruent circles)

AOB CO'D (SSS congruence rule)

AB = CD (by CPCT)

Hence, if chords of congruent circles subtend equal angles at their centres then chords are equal.

AOB = CO'D (given)

OA = O'C (radii of congruent circles)

OB = O'D (radii of congruent circles)

AOB CO'D (SSS congruence rule)

AB = CD (by CPCT)

Hence, if chords of congruent circles subtend equal angles at their centres then chords are equal.

## Circles Exercise Ex. 9.2

### Solution 1

Let radius of circle centered at O and O' be 5 cm and 3 cm respectively.

OA = OB = 5 cm

O'A = O'B = 3 cm

OO' will be the perpendicular bisector of chord AB.

AC = CB

OA = OB = 5 cm

O'A = O'B = 3 cm

OO' will be the perpendicular bisector of chord AB.

AC = CB

Given that OO' = 4 cm

Let OC be x. so, O'C will be 4 - x

In OAC

^{2}+ 16 + x

^{2}- 8x

AC

^{2}= - x

^{2}- 7 + 8x ... (2)

From equations (1) and (2), we have

25 - x

^{2}= - x

^{2}- 7 + 8x

8x = 32

x = 4

So, the common chord will pass through the centre of smaller circle i.e. O'. and hence it will be diameter of smaller circle.

Now, AC

AC = 3 m

^{2}= 25 - x^{2}= 25 - 4^{2}= 25 - 16 = 9AC = 3 m

The length of the common chord AB = 2 AC = (2 3) m = 6 m

### Solution 2

chords PQ and RS are congruent to each other.

On adding equations (1) and (3), we have

PV + VT = RU + UT

PT = RT ... ... ... ... (4)

Equations (4) and (5) shows that the corresponding segments of

chords PQ and RS are congruent to each other.

OV = OU (Equal chords of a circle are equidistant from the centre)

OVT = OUT (Each 90

OT = OT (common)

OVT OUT (RHS congruence rule)

OTV = OTU (by CPCT)

Draw perpendiculars OV and OU on these chords.

In OVT and OUT

OV = OU (Equal chords of a circle are equidistant from the centre)

OVT = OUT (Each 90

^{o})OT = OT (common)

OVT OUT (RHS congruence rule)

OTV = OTU (by CPCT)

Hence, the line joining the point of intersection to the centre makes equal angles with the chords.

### Solution 4

Let us draw a perpendicular OM on line AD.

Here, BC is chord of smaller circle and AD is chord of bigger circle.

We know that the perpendicular drawn from centre of circle bisects the chord.

Subtracting equations (2) from (1), we have

AM - BM = MD - MC

AB = CD

^{2}+ (3 m)^{2}= (5 m)^{2}OA

^{2}= (25 - 9) m^{2}= 16 m^{2}OA = 4 m

We know that in an isosceles triangle altitude divides the base, so in RSM

RCS will be of 90

^{o}and RC = CMArea of ORS = OARS

RC = 4.8

RM = 2RC = 2(4.8)= 9.6

Medians of equilateral triangle pass through the circum centre (O) of the equilateral triangle ABC.

We also know that median intersect each other at the 2: 1. As AB is the median of equilateral triangle ABC, we can write
