Question 6.
Draw ∆ABC. Draw perpendiculars from A, B and C respectively on the sides BC, CA and AB. Are there perpendicular concurrent? (passing through the same points).
Solution:
Step I: Draw any ∆ABC.
Step II : Draw the perpendicular AD from A to BC.


Step III : Draw the perpendicular BE from B to AC.
Step IV : Draw the perpendicular CF from C to AB.
We observe that the perpendiculars AD, BE and CF intersect each other at P.
Thus, P is the point of intersection of the three perpendiculars.
