Practice on QA is the best solution!

In the figure given below, ABCD is a parallelogram. E is the midpoint of the side BC. DF is drawnperpendicular to AE. If AB = 5.6 cm and BC = 2.8 cm, find the length of CF.

(a) 4.2 cm       (b) 5.6 cm        (c) 4.8 cm           (d) 5.4 cm

Solution:

Let’s draw CH parallel to AE intersecting DF at G.

As CE || AH and AE || CH, AECH is also a parallelogram.
Hence, CE = AH and H is the midpoint of AD.

In ïƒ¿ADF,GH || AF,therefore, G is the midpoint of FD.
(Basic Proportionality Theorem)

In ïƒ¿CFD,since EF || CG and ïƒ¿CGF ïƒ¿90ïƒ¿CG is the median as well as the altitude. Hence, ïƒ¿CDFis an isosceles triangle and CF = CD = 5.6 cm.
