Geometry | Chapter 4 | 8th Maths : Summary

**SUMMARY**

**• **Congruent figures are exactly
the same in shape and size.

**• **Similar figures have the
same shape but different sizes.

**• **In a right angled triangle,
the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the**
**squares on the other two
sides. This is known as Pythagoras theorem.

**• **The three medians of any
triangle are concurrent. The point of concurrence of the**
**three medians in a triangle
is called its Centroid, denoted by the letter G.

**• **The three altitudes of any
triangle are concurrent. The point of concurrence of the**
**three altitudes of a triangle
is called as its Orthocentre, denoted by the letter H.

**• **The three perpendicular bisectors
of the sides of any triangle are concurrent. The** **point of concurrence of the
three perpendicular bisectors of a triangle is called as its Circumcentre, denoted
by the letter S.

**• **The three angle bisectors
of any triangle are concurrent. The point of concurrence**
**of the three angle bisectors
of a triangle is called as its Incentre, denoted by the letter I.

**• **A trapezium is a quadrilateral
in which a pair of opposite sides are parallel.

**• **A parallelogram is a quadrilateral
in which the opposite sides are parallel.

**• **Rhombus is a parallelogram
in which all its sides are congruent.

**• **Rectangle is a parallelogram
whose all its angles are right angles.

**• **Square is a parallelogram
in which all its sides and angles are equal.
