(ii) Find SP if TP = 18 cm, RQ = 4 cm and TR = 6 cm.
(iii) Find area of quadrilateral PQRS if area of ∆ PTS = 27cm2.

Answer 6

(a) Steps of Construction:
icse-previous-papers-with-solutions-for-class-10-mathematics-2016-26(i) Using the given data, construct the regular hexagon ABCDEF with each side equal to 5 cm.
(ii) Draw the perpendicular bisectors of sides AB, BC, CD, DE, EF and FA which intersect AB at V, BC at X, CD at Y, DE at U, EF at W and FA at Z.
(iii) Join the mid points of opposite sides i.e., UV, WX and YZ and the diagonals passing through the centres i.e., AD, BE and CF.
Hence A regular hexagon has six lines of symmetry – UV, WX, YZ, AD, BE, CF.
