**Quadrilateral Practice Problems for 9th Grade :**

Here we are going to see some example problems based on the concept quadrilaterals.

**Question 1 :**

Show that the bisectors of angles of a parallelogram form a rectangle .

**Solution :**

In triangle ADS,

<SAD = (1/2)<A ----(1)

<ADS = (1/2) <D ----(2)

(1) + (2)

<SAD + <ADS = (1/2) [<A + <D]

<SAD + <ADS = (1/2) (180)

<SAD + <ADS = 90

In triangle ADS,

<SAD + <ASD + <SDA = 180

<SAD + <SDA + <ASD = 180

90 + <ASD = 180

<ASD = 180 - 90

<ASD = 90, <PSR = 90 (Vertically opposite angle)

Hence PQRS is a rectangle.

**Question 2 :**

If a triangle and a parallelogram lie on the same base and between the same parallels, then prove that the area of the triangle is equal to half of the area of parallelogram.

**Solution :**

Let ΔABP and a parallelogram ABCD be on the same base AB and between the same parallels AB and PC.

To Prove : ar( ΔPAB ) = (1/2)ar( ABCD)

Draw BQ ||AP to obtain another parallelogram.ABQP and ABCD are on the same base AB and between the same parallels AB and PC.

Therefore, ar(ABQP) = ar(ABCD)

But ΔPAB ≅ ΔBQP( Diagonals PB divides parallelogram ABQP into two congruent triangles.

So ar (PAB) = ar(BQP) -----------(2)

ar (PAB) = (1/2)ar(ABQP) -----------------(3)

This gives ar (PAB) = (1/2)ar(ABCD)

**Question 3 :**

Iron rods a, b, c, d, e, and f are making a design in a bridge as shown in the figure. If a || b , c || d , e || f , find the marked angles between

(i) b and c

(ii) d and e

(iii d and f

(iv) c and f

**Solution :**

(i) Angle between b and c is 30.

(ii) Angle between d and e :

75 + angle between d and e = 180

Angle between d and e = 180 - 75

= 105

(iii) Angle between d and f :

In a parallelogram opposite angles will be equal.

Angle between d and is also 75.

(iv) Angle between c and f :

In a parallelogram opposite angles will be equal.

Angle between c and f is 105.
