# side ab and ac and median ad of a triangle abc r respectively proportional to sides   pq and pr and median pm of another triangle pqr prove that triangle abc similar to pqr  explain step by step it plz

GIVEN - AB/PQ , AC/PR , AD/PM

CONSTRUCTION - Let us extend AD and PM up to point E and L respectively, such that AD = DE and PM = ML. Then, join B to E, C to E, Q to L, and R to L.

PROVE - ΔABC ∼ ΔPQR We know that medians divide opposite sides.

Therefore, BD = DC and QM = MR

Also, AD = DE (By construction)

And, PM = ML (By construction)

In quadrilateral ABEC, diagonals AE and BC bisect each other at point D.

Therefore, quadrilateral ABEC is a parallelogram.

∴ AC = BE and AB = EC (Opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal)

Similarly, we can prove that quadrilateral PQLR is a parallelogram and PR = QL, PQ = LR

It was given that   ∴ ΔABE ∼ ΔPQL (By SSS similarity criterion)

We know that corresponding angles of similar triangles are equal.

∴ ∠BAE = ∠QPL … (1)

Similarly, it can be proved that ΔAEC ∼ ΔPLR and

∠CAE = ∠RPL … (2)

Adding equation (1) and (2), we obtain

∠BAE + ∠CAE = ∠QPL + ∠RPL

⇒ ∠CAB = ∠RPQ … (3)

In ΔABC and ΔPQR, (Given)

∠CAB = ∠RPQ [Using equation (3)]

∴ ΔABC ∼ ΔPQR (By SAS similarity criterion)

solved by meritian....!! well.. i think merit xxprt...!!!

Similarly, it can be proved that ΔAEC ∼ ΔPLR and

CAE = RPL (2)

Adding equation (1) and (2), we obtain

BAE + CAE = QPL + RPL

⇒ CAB = RPQ (3)

In ΔABC and ΔPQR,

(Given)

CAB = RPQ [Using equation (3)]

∴ ΔABC ∼ ΔPQR (By SAS similarity criterion)
