Circles (Exercise: 10.6) EX 10.6 QUESTION 1.

Prove that the line of centres of two intersecting circles subtends equal angles at the two points of intersection.

Solution: Given: Two circles with centres P and Q respectively such that they intersect each other at P and Q.
To Prove: ∠PAQ = ∠PBQ.
Proof: In ∆APQ and ∆BPQ,
PA = PB [Radii of the same circle]
QA = QB [Radii of the same circle]
PQ = PQ [Common]
∴ ∆APQ = ∆BPQ [ SSS congruence criteria]
⇒ ∠PAQ = ∠PBQ [C.P.C.T.]
