Using theorem how i solve the problem of exercise 6.2 of triangles chapter, how i solve this problem because it is very important Using Basic proportionality theorem, prove that a line drawn through the mid-points of one side of a triangle parallel to another side bisects the third side. (Recall that you have proved it in Class IX).

  1. Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 6-10

    Solution:

    Given, in ΔABC, D is the midpoint of AB such that AD=DB.

    A line parallel to BC intersects AC at E as shown in above figure such that DE || BC.

    We have to prove that E is the mid point of AC.

    Since, D is the mid-point of AB.

    ∴ AD=DB

    ⇒AD/DB = 1 …………………………. (i)

    In ΔABC, DE || BC,

    By using Basic Proportionality Theorem,

    Therefore, AD/DB = AE/EC

    From equation (i), we can write,

    ⇒ 1 = AE/EC

    ∴ AE = EC

    Hence, proved, E is the midpoint of AC.
