(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) If a circle is inscribed in a right angled triangle $$ABC$$ with the right angle at $$B$$, show that the diameter of the circle is equal to $$AB+BC-AC$$.

(b) If a triangle is inscribed in a circle, then the product of any two sides of the triangle is equal to the product of the diameter and the perpendicular distance of the third side from the opposite vertex. Prove the above statement.

(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.

A triangle $$ABC$$ has sides $$AB=AC=5$$ cm and $$BC=6$$ cm Triangle $$A'B'C'$$ is the reflection of the triangle $$ABC$$ in a line parallel to $$AB$$ placed at a distance $$2$$ cm from $$AB$$, outside the triangle $$ABC$$. Triangle $$A''B''C''$$ is the reflection of the triangle $$A'B'C'$$ in a line parallel to $$BC$$ placed at a distance of $$2$$ cm from $$B'C'$$ outside the triangle $$A'B'C'$$. Find the distance between $$A$$ and $$A''$$.
