**19. In – any correspondence of two fight angles, if their hypotenuses are congruent and one more side of one triangle is congruent to the corresponding side of the other, the two triangles are congruent. Prove it.**

**Proof:**

**21. Take two points p & q at a distance of 7cm. Draw circles with the radii of 2.8 cm, and ****1.6cm with centres p & q. Draw direct common tangent to these circles & write steps of construction**

STEPS OF CONSTRUCTION:

(i) Draw a line segment PQ = 7cm

(ii) With centre P draw a circle of radius 2.8 cm and at Q draw a circle of radius 1.6 cm.

(iii) Taking P as centre draw a third circle of radius 2.8 – 1.6 = 1.2 cm

(iv) Bisect line segment PQ at point O.

(v) Taking centre 0 and radius equal to OP or OQ draw a 4th circle intersecting.

(vi) Join P to C and produce it to meet the bigger circle at O. Repeat the same process with the lower point C.

(vii) Draw QE parallel to PO and QF parallel to PO’

(viii) Now join D and E and produce it on both sides similarly draw D’E’ and produce on both sides DE and DE are the required direct common tangents .
