$$ABC$$ is a triangle with $$AB=AC$$. $$D$$ is any point on the side $$BC$$. $$E$$ and $$F$$ are points on the side $$AB$$ and $$AC$$, respectively, such that $$DE$$ is parallel to $$AC$$, and $$DF$$ is parallel to $$AB$$. Prove that
$$$DF + FA + AE + ED = AB + AC$$$

(i) $$PQ$$ is a vertical tower. $$P$$ is the foot and $$Q$$ is the top of the tower. $$A, B, C$$ are three points in the horizontal plane through $$P$$. The angles of elevation of $$Q$$ from $$A$$, $$B$$, $$C$$ are equal, and each is equal to $$\theta $$. The sides of the triangle $$ABC$$ are $$a, b, c$$; and the area of the triangle $$ABC$$ is $$\Delta $$. Show that the height of the tower is $${{abc\tan \theta } \over {4\Delta }}$$.

(ii) $$AB$$ is vertical pole. The end $$A$$ is on the level ground. $$C$$ is the middle point of $$AB$$. $$P$$ is a point on the level ground. The portion $$CB$$ subtends an angle $$\beta $$ at $$P$$. If $$AP = n\,AB,$$ then show that tan$$\beta $$ $$ = {n \over {2{n^2} + 1}}$$

(a) A balloon is observed simultaneously from three points $$A, B$$ and $$C$$ on a straight road directly beneath it. The angular elevation at $$B$$ is twice that at $$A$$ and the angular elevation at $$C$$ is thrice that at $$A$$. If the distance between $$A$$ and $$B$$ is a and the distance between $$B$$ and $$C$$ is $$b$$, find the height of the balloon in terms of $$a$$ and $$b$$.

(b) Find the area of the smaller part of a disc of radius $$10$$ cm, cut off by a chord $$AB$$ which subtends an angle of at the circumference.
