2. In Fig. 4.57, AE is the bisector of the exterior ∠CAD meeting BC produced in E. If AB = 10 cm, AC = 6 cm and BC = 12 cm, and find CE . 
Solution



3. In Fig. 4.58, △ABC is a triangle such that AB/AC = BD/DC, ∠B = 70°, ∠C = 50° . Find ∠BAD.
Solution 



4. In fig. 4.59, check whether AD is the bisector of ∠A of ∆ABC in each of the following:



(i) AB = 5cm, AC = 10cm, BD = 1.5 cm and CD = 3.5 cm
(ii) AB = 4 cm, AC = 6 cm, BD = 1.6 cm and CD = 2.4 cm
(iii) AB = 8 cm, AC = 24 cm, BD = 6 cm and BC = 24cm
(iv) AB = 6 cm, AC = 8cm, BD = l.5 cm and CD = 2 cm
(v) AB = 5 cm, AC = l2 cm, BD = 2.5 cm and BC = 9cm 


Solution



5. In Fig. 4.60, AD bisects ∠A, AB = 12 cm, AC = 20 cm and BD = 5 cm, determine CD. 


Solution

It is given that AD bisects ∠A . Also, AB = 12 cm, AC = 20 cm and BD = 5 cm.
We have to find CD.
Since AD is the bisector of ∠A
Then AD/AC = BD/DC
12cm/20cm = 5cm/DC
12cm × Dc = 20cm × 5 cm
DC = 100/12 cm 
= 8.33 cm
Hence, CD = 8.33 cm

6. In △ABC (Fig., 4.59), if ∠1 = ∠2, prove that AB/AC = BD/DC.


Solution



7. D, E and F are the points on sides BC, CA and AB respectively of ∆ABC such that AD bisects ∠A, BE bisects ∠B and CF bisects ∠C. If AB = 5 cm, BC = 8 cm and CA = 4 cm.
