#### In the adjoining figure, ABC is a triangle.

DE is parallel to BC and

(i) Determine the ratios

(ii) Prove that ∆DEF is similar to ∆CBF.

Hence, find .

(iii) What is the ratio of the areas of ∆DEF and ∆CBF ? (2007)

**Solution:**

**More Solutions:**

- In triangles ABC and DEF, ∠B = ∠E, ∠F = ∠C and AB = 3DE.
- The given figure, AB || DE. The length of CD is
- If ∆PQR ~ ∆ABC, PQ = 6 cm, AB = 8 cm and perimeter of ∆ABC is 36 cm.
- PQ || CA and all lengths are given in centimeters.
- The points on the sides AB and AC of a ∆ABC.
- If the areas of two similar triangles are in the ratio 4 : 9
