# NCERT Solutions Class 9 Maths Chapter 10 – CIRCLES Exercise 10.6

## (Q 1) Prove that the line of centres of two intersecting circles subtends equal angles at the two points of intersection.

## Ans

## (Q 2) Two chords AB and CD of lengths 5 cm and 11 cm respectively of a circle are parallel to each other and are on opposite sides of its centre. If the distance between AB and CD is 6 cm, find the radius of the circle

## Ans

## (Q 3) The lengths of two parallel chords of a circle are 6 cm and 8 cm. If the smaller chord is at distance 4 cm from the center, what is the distance of the other chord from the center?

## Ans

## (Q 4) Let the vertex of an angle ABC be located outside a circle and let the sides of the angle intersect equal chords AD and CE with the circle. Prove that ABC is equal to half the difference of the angles subtended by the chords AC and DE at the centre.

## Ans

## (Q 5) Prove that the circle drawn with any side of a rhombus as diameter, passes through the point of intersection of its diagonals.

## Ans

## (Q 6) ABCD is a parallelogram. The circle through A, B and C intersect CD (produced if necessary) at E. Prove that AE = AD.

## Ans

## (Q 7) AC and BD are chords of a circle which bisect each other. Prove that (i) AC and BD are diameters, (ii) ABCD is a rectangle.

## Ans

## (Q 8) Bisectors of angles A, B and C of a triangle ABC intersect its circumcircle at D, E and F respectively. Prove that the angles of the triangle DEF are 90°-1/2 A , 90°-1/2 B and 90°-1/2 C

## Ans

## (Q 9) Two congruent circles intersect each other at points A and B. Through A any line segment PAQ is drawn so that P, Q lie on the two circles. Prove that BP = BQ.

## Ans

## (Q 10) In any triangle ABC, if the angle bisector of A and perpendicular bisector of BC intersect, prove that they intersect on the circumcircle of the triangle ABC.
