# In the given figure, two chords $AB$ and $CD$ intersect each other at the point $P$. Prove that $AP \times PB = CP \times DP$.

"

Given:

Two chords $AB$ and $CD$ intersect each other at the point $P$.

To do:

We have to prove that $AP \times PB = CP \times DP$.

Solution:

In $\triangle \mathrm{APC}$ and $\triangle \mathrm{BPD}$,

$\angle \mathrm{APC}=\angle \mathrm{DPB}$ (Vertically opposite angles)

$\angle \mathrm{PAC}=\angle \mathrm{PDB}$ (Angles on the same segment are equal)

Therefore, by AA similarity,

$\triangle \mathrm{APC} \sim \triangle \mathrm{DPB}$

This implies,

$\frac{\mathrm{AP}}{\mathrm{PD}}=\frac{\mathrm{CP}}{\mathrm{PB}}$

$\mathrm{AP} \times \mathrm{PB}=\mathrm{CD} \times \mathrm{PD}$

Hence proved.
