#### QUESTION 14

In the adjoining figure, from point P not lying on a line m , line segments are drawn to m , PD being the shortest one. If B and C be the points on m such that D is the mid point of BC . Prove that PB=PC

[Hint: Let m be a line and P be a point not lying on m. On the line m , B and C are two points such that BD=DC.

To prove : PB=PC

Proof: Of line segments drawn from P to m. PD is the smallest,

∴PD⊥m

That is , ∠PDB=∠PDC=90°

Now, prove congruence of ΔPBD and ΔPCD ]
