To construct a triangle similar to a given ∆ABC with its sides 3/7 of the corresponding sides of ∆ABC, first draw a ray BX such that ∠CBX is an acute angle and X lies on the opposite side of A with respect to BC. Then, locate points B1,B2,B3,.......... on BX at equal distances and next step is to join
To construct a triangle similar to a given ∆ ABC with its sides 7/3 of the corresponding sides of ∆ABC, draw a ray BX making an acute angle with BC and X lies on the opposite side of A with respect of BC. The points B1, B2,...........B1 are located at equal distances on BX, B3 is joined to C and then a where C’ lines on BC produced. Finally line segment A’C’ is drawn parallel to AC.
Draw a parallelogram ABCD in which BC=5 cm, AB=3 cm, and ∠ABC=60°, divide it into triangles BCD and ABD by the diagonal BD. Construct the triangles BD’C’ similar to ∆BDC with scale factor 4/3. Draw the line segment D’A’ parallel to DA, where A’ lies on extended side BA. Is A’BC’D’ a parallelogram?
