Mathematics is an equally important section for REET, MPTET & DSSSB Exams and has even more abundant importance in some other exams conducted by central or state govt. Generally, there are questions asked related to basic concepts and properties of the Geometry.
To let you make the most of Mathematics section, we are providing important facts related to the Geometry.At least 2-3 questions are asked from geometry topic in most of the teaching exams. We wish you all the best of luck to come over the fear of the Mathematics section.
Polygon: Two types of angle
- Exterior Angle: Sum of exterior Angle of the polygon is 360°,
Interior Angle: Sum of the interior angle of the polygon is (n – 2)× 180.
- Vertical opposite angle always be same
-: ∠ 1 = ∠ 3 and ∠ 1 + ∠ 2= 180°
-: ∠ 2 = ∠ 4 and ∠ 3 + ∠ 4 = 180°
- Corresponding angles:
∠ 4 + ∠ 5 = 180°
∠ 3 + ∠ 6 = 180°
- Sum of 2 interior angle opposite to exterior angle
5. In the given fig. AB = AC, then AD which is median of the triangle also be height of triangle
- In the given fig. ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.
∠ A + ∠ C = 180° (opp. Angle)
∠ B + ∠ D = 180°
⟹ opposite interior angle is equal to exterior angle.
Type of centres:
- Ortho – centre
(1) Centroid: Intersecting points of the medians of triangle is known as centroid of the triangle.
Area of ∆ ABD = ∆ ACD
AG : GD = 2 : 1
Area of ∆ BGC = ∆ AGC = ∆ AGB
Area of ∆ nzGY : ∆ ABC
2 : 36
1 : 18
Example: PS is the median of a triangle PQR and O is centroid such that PS = 27 cm. The length of PO is
Sol. PS is the median and O is the centroid —– (given)
PS = 27 cm
Ratio of PO : OS

(2) Incentre: Intersecting points of angle bisector of triangle is known as Incentre of the triangle
Ix = Iy = Iz = radius
Example: O is the incentre of triangle PQR, ∠ PQR = 70° and ∠PRQ = 60°, Then find the value of ∠ QOR.
Sol. Acc. to Question
QO and RO are the angle bisector
∴ ∠ RQO = 35° and ∠ QRO = 30°
In ∆ QOR, ∠ RQO + ∠ QRO + ∠ QOR = 180°
35° + 30° + ∠ QOR = 180°
∠ QOR = 180° – 65° ⟹ 115°
(3) Circum-centre: Intersecting point of the perpendicular bisector of triangle is known as circum-centre of the triangle
AO = OB = OC = Radius
∠BOC = 2 (∠BAC)
In right ∠ ∆ circum-centre is formed on the mid-point of hypotenuse.
(4) Ortho-centre: intersecting points of the altitudes of triangle is known as orthocentre of the triangle
Example: In an obtuse angled triangle ABC, ∠B is obtuse angled and O is orthocentre. ∠ AOC = 69° and ∠ ABC is
Sol. ∠ ABC = 180° – ∠ AOC
= 180° – 69°
Some important facts of the triangle:
- Mid-Point Theorem: In triangle ABC, P and Q are mid – point of AB and AC. Then PQ always || to BC (PQ || BC).
- Median theorem: In ∆ ABC, AD is Median
Example: If the length of the three sides of a triangle is a 9 cm, 40 cm, and 41 cm then find the length of median to its greatest side.
Sol. This is a right-angled triangle
- Angle bisector theorem: Internal angle bisector
External angle bisector:
- In the right Triangle ABC, F and D is the mid – points of AB and BC
