Solution :-

Given, ABC and AMP are two right triangles, right angled at B and M respectively.

(i) In ΔABC and ΔAMP, we have,

∠CAB = ∠MAP (common angles)

∠ABC = ∠AMP = 90° (each 90°)

ΔABC ~ ΔAMP (AA similarity criterion)

 

(ii) As, ΔABC ~ ΔAMP (AA similarity criterion)

If two triangles are similar then the corresponding sides are always equal,

Hence, \( \dfrac{CA}{PA}=\dfrac{BC}{MP}\)
