2. is a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle. Diagonal bisects . If ,
and , find .

Solution:

Call the point of intersection of BD and AC as O.


Therefore, because of the given that bisects .

Consider and :
, vertical angles are congruent.
, intercept the same arc. Thus .
Therefore by AA Similarity Postulate, . Thus:

Substitute , and .

Now consider and :


, vertical angles are congruent.
, intercept the same arc. Thus .
Therefore by AA Similarity Postulate, . Thus:

Substitute and .

By Transitivity Property:

Therefore:

5. A circle is tangent to the hypotenuse of isosceles . and are extended and
are tangent to circle and and respectively, as shown in the figure. The area of the
triangles is 4 sq units. Find the area of the circle.

Solution:

But since is an isosceles triangle. Thus:

By PT: .
The median of a right triangle with respect to the hypotenuse is half the hypotenuse.
Therefore:

Let the radius of the circle.


Thus

is a square whose side is . Therefore .


But , hence,
