.. remainder arc BAC = arc EDF. .. LBKC = L ELF (111. 27]

... segments BKC, ELF are similar : and they are on equal chords. .. they are equal. [111. 24.] Also A BGC = A EHF. .. sector BGC = sector EHF.

4. Let chords AC, BD intersect at rt. L s in X. Then LAXD = _ * ABD, BAC together, .. the arcs AD, BC subtend at the circumference 28 together equal to a rt. L.

PX and QY subtend at A opp. vertical < S. Hence arc PX = arc QY. Hence chord PX = chord QY.

12. Each = the common chord [Ex. 1].

13. Since the chord AB is common to the two equal os, the arc AB in one = the arc AB in the other [111. 28]; .. LAPB = LAQB [111. 27]. ..BP = BQ.

14. Each of the chords BX, XA, AY, YC subtends an . equal to half the base L.

Hence, if the base < s are each double of the vertical the pentagon is equilateral.

Page 199. 1. See fig. p. 199. Let tangent at D be par. to AB. Then, if DC be perp. to tangent, the centre is in DC (111. 19]. But DC is also perp. to AB. ... DC bisects AB [111. 3.] Hence arc ADB is bisected at D [111. 30].

2. Let CB be the quadrant, A the centre. On AB describe an equilateral A ADB. Because AD= AB, .. D is on the circumference. Bisect DAB in E. Then the rt. BAC is trisected by AD, AE [Ex. 6, p. 60). .. the arc BC is trisected at D and E.

2. The locus is the o on hyp. as diameter.

3. The locus is a quadrant of the o whose centre is the pt. of intersection of the rulers, and radius half the length of the rod [111. 31].

4. Each of the LS PBA, QBA in a semicircle is a rt. L. .. PB, QB are in a st. line.

5. The line joining the vertex of an isosceles A to the middle pt. of the base is perp. to the base. Hence the o on a side as diameter passes through the middle pt. of the base [Ex. 1].


Let A be pt. of contact, AB diameter of inner, and ABC of outer 0. Draw any chord ADE. Then each of the < 8 ADB, AEC in a semicircle is a rt. L. .. BD is parl. to CE. But B is middle pt. of AC. :. D is middle pt. of AE (Ex. 1, p. 96).

7. Both the circles described on the sides of a A as diameters must pass through the foot of the perp. from the vertex on the base or base produced.

8. The required locus is the o whose diameter is the line joining the given pt. to the centre of the given O. If the pt. is without the oce, the locus is confined within the two tangents to the O. If the pt. is on the oce, the locus is the o on the radius through the point as diameter. [See solution of Ex. 40, p. 229.]

9. On the side of the greater of the two given squares as diameter describe a semicircle : from its extremity draw a chord equal to the side of the other given square. The chord completing the A is the side of the required square [111. 31, 1. 47].

11. Since the diagonals of a rhombus are at rt. Ļs to one another (Ex. 11, p. 27), :: the required locus is the o described on the given st. line as diameter.

Page 204. 1. If, from one extremity of a chord of a circle, a straight line be drawn making an angle with the chord equal to the angle in the alternate segment, this straight line shall touch the circle.

Take fig. p. 203. Let BA be the diameter through B. Then, if the DBF is acute, the alternate segment must be > a semicircle. :. the diameter BA must fall in this segment.

.. LDBF = L BAD: add LABD. .. LABF = 48 BAD, ABD = a rt. 2 (1. 32, 111. 31]. :. BF is a tangent. Similarly, if _ EBD is an obtuse angle, EB must be a tangent.

2. Each of the _ s made by the tangents with the line joining their pts. of contact is equal to the angle in the alt. segment. :. these _ are equal

... the tangents are equal (1. 6].

3. Let A be pt. of contact, AB, AC the diameters of the given OS. Draw ADE to cut the Os in D and E. Then < s ADB, AEC in semicircles are rt. _ S. .. BD, CE are par. and _ S DAB, EAC are in (i) coincident and in (ii) opp. vertical. Hence the remaining _ S ABD, ACE are equal (1. 32] : i. e. the segments DBA, ECA are similar.

4. Draw T'AT the common tangent to the two os at A. [Ex. 3, p. 181.] Let AX be between AP and AT. Then

_TAX = LAPX (111. 32]. And, in (i),

L TAX = L AQY : in (ii),


L T'AY=L AQY. :. in (i) and in (ii) LAQY = L APX.

:. PX is par!. to QY.

5. Tangent at A to first o makes with AO an í equal to OBA in alternate segment. But because o is centre of the other

OA = OB. .. LOBA= L OAB. .. AO bisects < between AB and the tangent at A.

6. The tangent at P makes with PAC an _ equal to < PBA = L ABD (or its supplement) = L ACD (or its supplement). .. tangent at P is par!. to CD.

7. Let A be pt. of contact, AB chord through A, C the middle pt. of arc cut off by AB; CM, CN perps. on the tangent at A and the chord AB. Then L CAM = L ABC (111. 32] and [ABC = _ CAB [111. 307 L CAM= L CAB. .. the < $ CAM, CAN are identically equal (1. 26]. CM = CN.
