8A Review of triangles

and ICE-EM Mathematics Year 9. We briefly review them here.

Triangles

We recall:

The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180.

An exterior angle of a triangle equals the sum of the opposite interior angles.

The base angles of an isosceles triangle are equal.

Conversely, if two angles of a triangle are equal, then the sides opposite those angles

are equal.

Each interior angle of an equilateral triangle is 60.

Conversely, if the three angles of a triangle are equal, then the triangle is equilateral.

Polygons

The angle sum of a quadrilateral is 360.

The sum of the interior angles of a convex polygon is (n 2)180.

The sum of the exterior angles of a convex polygon is 360.

8B Congruence

In ICE-EM Mathematics Year 8 and Year 9 we introduced the idea of congruent figures.

Congruent figures

Two plane figures are called congruent if one figure can be moved on top of the other

figure, by a sequence of translations, rotations and reflections, so that they coincide

exactly.

Congruent figures have exactly the same shape and size.

When two figures are congruent, we can match up every part of one figure with the

corresponding part of the other, so that:

matching angles have the same size

matching intervals have the same length

matching regions have the same area.

The congruence arguments used in this chapter involve only congruent triangles. In ICE-EM

Mathematics Year 8 and Year 9 we developed four tests for two triangles to be congruent, as

follows.

Two triangles are congruent if:

SSS: the three sides of one triangle are respectively equal to the three sides of the other

triangle, or

AAS: two angles and one side of one triangle are respectively equal to two angles and

the matching side of the other triangle, or

SAS: two sides and the included angle of one triangle are respectively equal to two sides

and the included angle of the other triangle, or

RHS: the hypotenuse and one side of one right-angled triangle are respectively equal to

the hypotenuse and one side of the other right-angled triangle.

ABC PQR,

where the vertices are written in matching order.

When a congruence test is used to justify the congruence, the tests initials are placed in

brackets after the congruence statement, as in Example 1 on the next page.

If the two triangles are congruent, write down a congruence statement and the

congruence test used to justify it.

If they are not, explain why not.

is not isosceles. Hence, ABC is not congruent to XYZ, because AC XZ.

Quadrilaterals

The sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360.

Congruence of triangles is used to establish properties of special quadrilaterals.

Parallelograms

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel.

A parallelogram has the following properties, as proved in ICE-EM Mathematics Year 9

Book 1, Chapter 7:

B C

The opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal.

The opposites sides of a parallelogram are equal.

The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. A D

Here are four well known tests for a parallelogram. Proofs of these are given in ICE-EM

Mathematics Year 9 Book 1, Chapter 7.

If the opposite angles of a quadrilateral are equal, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

If the opposite sides of a quadrilateral are equal, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are equal and parallel, then the quadrilateral

is a parallelogram.

If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

Rhombuses

A rhombus is a quadrilateral with four equal sides. A rhombus is a parallelogram. (We also

note that because the opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal, it is always sufficient to

establish that just two adjacent sides are equal.)

B

The following are properties of a rhombus, as were proved in

ICE-EM Mathematics Year 9 Book 1, Chapter 7.

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect the vertex angles through A C

which they pass.

Here are two tests for whether a quadrilateral is a rhombus.

Proofs of these are given in ICE-EM Mathematics Year 9 Book 1,

Chapter 7.

D

If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram with two adjacent sides equal,

then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other at right angles, then the quadrilateral

is a rhombus.

Rectangles

A rectangle is a quadrilateral in which all angles are right angles.

The following are properties of a rectangle, as proved in ICE-EM Mathematics Year 9 Book 1,

Chapter 7:

B C

A rectangle is a parallelogram.

Its opposite sides are equal and parallel.

Its diagonals bisect each other.

The diagonals of a rectangle are equal.

A D

Here are three tests for a rectangle:

A parallelogram with one right angle is a rectangle.

If all angles of a quadrilateral are equal, then the quadrilateral is a rectangle.

If the diagonals of a quadrilateral are equal and bisect each other, then the quadrilateral

is a rectangle. B

Kites

A C

A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent equal sides.

Example 2

In the kite ABCD, B

A

DA = DC and BA = BC.

Prove that BAD = BCD. D

Solution

Join D to B. B

In the triangles ABD and CBD,

BA = BC (given) D

DA = DC (given)

DB is common,

C

so BDA BDC (SSS)

Hence, BAD = BCD. (matching angles of congruent triangles)

8CEnlargements

Enlargements and similarity

An enlargement transformation is specified by its centre of enlargement and its

enlargement factor.

When a figure is enlarged:

matching lengths are in the same ratio and

matching angles are equal.

A C

The image is thus a scale drawing of the

original figure.

In the diagram at the right, O is A C

the centre of enlargement.

ABC is an enlargement

by factor 2 of ABC.

O B B

Since the enlargement factor

AB BC C A

is 2, = = = 2.

AB BC CA

Similarity

Two figures are called similar if we can enlarge one figure

so that its enlargement is congruent to the other figure. In

simple term, this means that by enlarging or shrinking one

of two items, we get the other item, perhaps translated,

rotated or reflected.

Thus, similar figures have the same shape, but not

necessarily the same size, just as a scale drawing has the

same shape as the original, but has a different

size.

Photocopying is restricted under law and this material must not be transferred to another party.

Similar figures

Two figures are called similar if there is an enlargement of one figure that is congruent

to the other figure.

Matching lengths in similar figures are in the same ratio, called the similarity ratio.

Matching angles in similar figures are equal.

As with congruence, most problems involving similarity come down to establishing that two

triangles are similar. In this section we review the four similarity tests for triangles. For each

congruence test there is a corresponding similarity test.

If the angles of one triangle are respectively equal to the angles of another triangle,

then the two triangles are similar.

Note: When using this test, it is sufficient to prove that just two pairs of angles are

equal the third pair must then also be equal since the angle sum of any triangle

is 180. Thus, the test is often called the AA similarity test.

This similarity test corresponds to the AAS congruence test.

Similarity statements

B

Arguments using similar triangles depend on a

statement that two triangles are similar. As with

congruence, always give the similarity test in brackets Q

A C

afterwards, and be particularly careful to name the

vertices in matching order.

P R

Thus, for the triangles shown, we write

ABC is similar to PQR (AAA).

Ratios between triangles and ratios within triangles

When two triangles are similar we can read off the ratios of the matching lengths between the

triangles in the box on the previous page. That is,

PQ RQ PR 3

= = =

AB CB AC 2

Alternatively, we can read off the ratios within the triangles. Thus, for the triangles on the

previous page,

PQ AB 6

= =

PR AC 5

PQ AB 3

and = =

RQ CB 2

RQ CB 4

and = =

PR AC 5

a x a b

Note that = is equivalent to = because both statements are equivalent to ay = bx.

b y x y

That is, equal ratios between the triangles is equivalent to equal ratios within triangles.

It does not matter whether you use ratios between triangles or ratios within triangles.

The SAS similarity test

There are two ways of stating the test:

Q

If the ratios of two pairs of matching sides 1

are equal and the included angles are

P R

equal, then the two triangles are similar. 22

1

OR B

sides of one triangle is equal to

the ratio of the lengths of another A 5

C

triangle and the included angles

are equal, then the two triangles

are similar.

The statement that the two triangles in the box above are similar is thus written as

ABC is similar to PQR (SAS).

Consider PQR and ABC, as shown in the box above. The ratios of matching lengths are:

AC AB

= =2

PR PQ

PR AC 5

The ratios within the triangles are = = .

PQ AB 2

There are two ways of stating the test:

B Q

If the ratio of the hypotenuses and the ratio of one

pair of sides of a right-angled triangle are equal, 2

then the triangles are similar. 3

OR A C

1

If the ratio of the hypotenuse and one side of one

right-angled triangle is equal to the ratio P 1

12 R

of the hypotenuse and one side of another right-angled

triangle, then the two triangles are similar.

The statement that the two triangles in the box above are similar is thus written as

ABC is similar to PQR (RHS).

Solution

UVW has angles 45, 105, 30.

Thus, triangles K and L are similar (AAA), but triangle J is not similar to K or L.

The matching side lengths in triangles L and K are 12 and 15 (since they are opposite

the 45 angle) and x and 18 (since they are opposite the 60 angle).

situations, as in the following examples.

8D Similarity and intervals

within a triangle

Similarity is a useful tool to analyse an interval joining points on two sides of a triangle, as in

the example below.

Example 11

In triangle ABC, A

14 7

AP = 14, PB = 6, AQ = 7 and QC = 3.

P Q

6

a Prove that ABC is similar to APQ. 3

B C

b Prove that PQ is parallel to BC.

c Find the ratio PQ:BC.

Solution

AB AC 10

= =

AP AQ 7

BAC = PAQ

ABC is similar to APQ (SAS).

b Since the triangles are similar, ABC = APQ.

Therefore, corresponding angles are equal.

Thus, BC || PQ.

c PQ:BC = 7:10 (matching sides of similar triangles)

Exercise 8D

1 Prove that the interval joining the midpoints of two B

sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and half

its length.

5 Draw a diagram of a triangle ABC with a point P on AB and a point Q on AC such that

AP = 12, PB = 9, AQ = 4 and QC = 3.

Prove that PQ || BC.

6 Draw a diagram of a triangle ABC with a point P on AB and a point Q on AC such that

AP = 9, PC = 15, AQ = 6 and PQ || BC.

Find the length QB and the ratio PQ:BC.

B

7 The point S is the intersection point of two lines. Points

A and B are the points of intersection of the first line with A

two parallel lines, such that B is further away from Sthan

A. Similarly, points C and D are the intersections of the

S C D

second line with the two parallel lines, such that D is

further away from S than C.

Prove that:

a SA:AB = SC:CD b SB:AB = SD:CD c SA:SB = SC:SD

8 The point S is the intersection point of two lines. Points B

A and B are the points of intersection of the first line with A

two other lines, such that B is further away from S than A.

Similarly, points C and D are the intersection points of the

second line with the two other lines, such that D is further S

away from S than C. Prove that if SA:AB = SC:CD, then C D

the two intercepting lines AC and BD are parallel.
