Unit 11: Parallelograms and Triangles

On this page notes of Unit 11 of Mathematics 9 written by Dr. Karamat H. Dar and Prof. Irfan-ul-Haq are given. Unit 08: Linear Graph and their Application After studying this unit, the students will be able to:

  • prove that in a parallelogram
    • the opposite sides are congruent,
    • the opposite angles are congruent,
    • the diagonals bisect each other.
  • prove that if two opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent and parallel, it is a parallelogram.
  • prove that the line segment, joining the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, is parallel to the third side and is equal to one half of its length.
  • prove that the medians of a triangle are concurrent and their point of concurrency is the point of trisection of each median.
  • prove that if three or more parallel lines make congruent segments on a transversal, they also intercept congruent segments on any other line that cuts them.

Definition Alert!

Quadrilateral: A figure formed by four non-collinear points in the plane is called a quadrilateral.

Parallelogram: A figure formed by four non-collinear points in the plane is called a parallelogram if its opposite sides are parallel.

Rectangle: A figure formed in the plane by four non-collinear points is called a rectangle if
(i) its opposite sides are equal in length.
(ii) the angle at each vertex is of measure 90 degree.
