E and F are two points on side PQ and PR in △PQR.

(i) PE=3.9 cm, EQ=3 cm and PF=3.6 cm, FR=2.4 cm

Using Basic proportionality theorem,

∴PE/EQ=3.9/3=39/30=13/10=1.3

PF/FR=3.6/2.4=36/24=3/2=1.5

EQPE=FRPF

So, EF is not parallel to QR.

(ii) PE=4 cm, QE=4.5 cm, PF=8 cm, RF=9 cm

Using Basic proportionality theorem,

∴PE/QE=4/4.5=40/45=8/9

PF/RF=8/9

PE/QE=PF/RF

So, EF is parallel to QR.

(iii) PQ=1.28 cm, PR=2.56 cm, PE=0.18 cm, PF=0.36 cm

Using Basic proportionality theorem,

EQ=PQ−PE=1.28−0.18=1.10 cm

FR=PR−PF=2.56−0.36=2.20 cm

PE/EQ=0.18/1.10=18/110=9/55… (i)

PE/FR=0.36/2.20=36/220=9/55 … (ii)

∴PE/EQ=PF/FR
