The internal bisectors of the $\angle B$ and the $\angle C$ of $\triangle ABC$ intersect at $O$. If $\angle A=100^0$, the $\angle BOC$ is,
G is the centroid of $\triangle ABC$. The medians AD and BE intersect at right angles. If the lengths of AD and BE are 9 cm and 12 cm respectively, the length of AB (in cm) is,
An interior angle of a regular polygon is 5 time its exterior angle. Then the number of sides of the polygon is,
ABCD is a cyclic trapezium with AB || DC and AB as the diameter. If $\angle CAB=30^0$, then $\angle ADC$ is,
Two circles with centers P and Q intersect at B and C. A and D are points on the first and second circles respectively, such that A, C and D are collinear. If $\angle APB=130^0$, the value of $\angle BQD$ is,
AB and AC are tangents to a circle. PQ, another tangent of the circle at the point D on the circle, intersects AB and AC at P and Q respectively. If AB is 15 cm and QA is 9 cm, then DQ is,
- 4.5 cm
- 3 cm
- 7.5 cm
- 6 cm
If two circles of radii 5 cm and 3 cm touch externally, the ratio in which the direct common tangent to the circles divide externally the line joining the centers of the circles is,
- 2.5 : 1.5
- 1.5 : 2.5
- 3 : 5
- 5 : 3
AC is the transverse common tangent to two circles with centers at P and Q and radii 6 cm and 3 cm at the points A and C respectively. If AC cuts PQ at the point B and AB is 8 cm, then the length of PQ is,
- 13 cm
- 15 cm
- 10 cm
- 12 cm
Length of a chord PQ in a circle is 18 cm. AB is the perpendicular bisector of PQ at M and intersects the circle at A and B. If MB = 3 cm, the length of AB is,
- 25 cm
- 27 cm
- 28 cm
- 30 cm
Two parallel chords are drawn in a circle of diameter 30 cm. The length of one chord is 24 cm and the distance between the chords is 21 cm. The length of the other chord is then,
- 10 cm
- 12 cm
- 18 cm
- 15 cm
