In Δ M N P (not shown), point Q lies on N P ¯ so that M Q bisects N M P . If M N < M P , draw a conclusion about the relative lengths of N Q ¯ and Q P ¯ .

To determine

To draw:

A conclusion about the relation between the length of NQ¯ and QP¯ from the given information.

Explanation

Given:

The triangle ΔMNP, point Q lies on NP¯ so that MQ bisects NMP and MN<MP.

Approach:

The angle bisector divides the opposite side in the ratio of the other two adjacent sides of the triangle.

Calculation:

Consider the triangle ΔMNP,

Figure (1)

From the given data, the side MP¯ is greater than the side MN¯.

MN¯<MP¯

Since, MQ¯ is the angle bisector of angle M and, the angle bisector divides the opposite side in the ratio of the other two sides of the triangle
