Question 1.
In the figure, the sides BA and CA have been produced such that BA = AD and CA = AE. Prove the segment DE || BC.

Solution:
Given : Sides BA and CA of ∆ABC are produced such that BA = AD are CA = AE. ED is joined.
To prove : DE || BC
Proof: In ∆ABC and ∆DAE AB=AD (Given)
AC = AE (Given)
∠BAC = ∠DAE (Vertically opposite angles)
∴ ∆ABC ≅ ∆DAE (SAS axiom)
But there are alternate angles
∴ DE || BC

Question 2.
In a ∆PQR, if PQ = QR and L, M and N are the mid-points of the sides PQ, QR and RP respectively. Prove that LN = MN.
Solution:
Given : In ∆PQR, PQ = QR
L, M and N are the mid points of the sides PQ, QR and PR respectively

To prove : LM = MN
Proof : In ∆LPN and ∆MRH
PN = RN (∵ M is mid point of PR)
LP = MR (Half of equal sides)
∠P = ∠R (Angles opposite to equal sides)
∴ ALPN ≅ AMRH (SAS axiom)
∴ LN = MN (c.p.c.t.)

Question 3.
Prove that the medians of an equilateral triangle are equal.
Solution:
Given : In ∆ABC, AD, BE and CF are the medians of triangle and AB = BC = CA

To prove : AD = BE = CF
Proof : In ∆BCE and ∆BCF,
BC = BC (Common side)
CE = BF (Half of equal sides)
∠C = ∠B (Angles opposite to equal sides)
∴ ABCE ≅ ABCF (SAS axiom)
∴ BE = CF (c.p.c.t.) …(i)
Similarly, we can prove that
From (i) and (ii)
⇒ AD = BE = CF

Question 4.
In a ∆ABC, if ∠A = 120° and AB = AC. Find ∠B and ∠C.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠A = 120° and AB = AC
∴ ∠B = ∠C (Angles opposite to equal sides)
But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)

⇒ 120° + ∠B + ∠B = 180°
⇒ 2∠B = 180° – 120° = 60°
∴ ∠B = $$\frac { { 60 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ = 30°
and ∠C = ∠B = 30°
Hence ∠B = 30° and ∠C = 30°

Question 5.
In a ∆ABC, if AB = AC and ∠B = 70°, find ∠A.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠B = 70°
AB =AC
∴ ∠B = ∠C (Angles opposite to equal sides)

But ∠B = 70°
∴ ∠C = 70°
But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ ∠A + 70° + 70° = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 140°= 180°
∴∠A = 180°- 140° = 40°

Question 6.
The vertical angle of an isosceles triangle is 100°. Find its base angles.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, AB = AC and ∠A = 100°
But AB = AC (In isosceles triangle)

∴ ∠C = ∠B (Angles opposite to equal sides)
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ 100° + ∠B + ∠B = 180° (∵ ∠C = ∠B)
⇒ 2∠B = 180° – 100° = 80°
∴ ∠C = ∠B = 40°
Hence ∠B = 40°, ∠C = 40°

Question 7.
In the figure, AB = AC and ∠ACD = 105°, find ∠BAC.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, AB = AC
∴ ∠B = ∠C (Angles opposite to equal sides)
But ∠ACB + ∠ACD = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ ∠ACB + 105°= 180°
⇒ ∠ACB = 180°-105° = 75°
∴ ∠ABC = ∠ACB = 75°
But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ ∠A + 75° + 75° = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 150°= 180°
⇒ ∠A= 180°- 150° = 30°
∴ ∠BAC = 30°

Question 8.
Find the measure of each exterior angle of an equilateral triangle.
Solution:
In an equilateral triangle, each interior angle is 60°

But interior angle + exterior angle at each vertex = 180°
∴ Each exterior angle = 180° – 60° = 120°

Question 9.
If the base of an isosceles triangle is produced on both sides, prove that the exterior angles so formed are equal to each other.
Solution:
Given : In an isosceles ∆ABC, AB = AC
and base BC is produced both ways

To prove : ∠ACD = ∠ABE
Proof: In ∆ABC,
∵ AB = AC
∴∠C = ∠B (Angles opposite to equal sides)
⇒ ∠ACB = ∠ABC
But ∠ACD + ∠ACB = 180° (Linear pair)
and ∠ABE + ∠ABC = 180°
∴ ∠ACD + ∠ACB = ∠ABE + ∠ABC
But ∠ACB = ∠ABC (Proved)
∴ ∠ACD = ∠ABE
Hence proved.

Question 10.
In the figure, AB = AC and DB = DC, find the ratio ∠ABD : ∠ACD.

Solution:
In the given figure,
In ∆ABC,
AB = AC and DB = DC
In ∆ABC,
∵ AB = AC
∴ ∠ACD = ∠ABE …(i) (Angles opposite to equal sides)
Similarly, in ∆DBC,
DB = DC
∴ ∠DCB = ∠DBC .. (ii)
Subtracting (ii) from (i)
∠ACB – ∠DCB = ∠ABC – ∠DBC
⇒ ∠ACD = ∠ABD
∴ Ratio ∠ABD : ∠ACD = 1 : 1

Question 11.
Determine the measure of each of the equal angles of a rightangled isosceles triangle.
OR
ABC is a rightangled triangle in which ∠A = 90° and AB = AC. Find ∠B and ∠C.
Solution:
Given : In a right angled isosceles ∆ABC, ∠A = 90° and AB = AC
To determine, each equal angle of the triangle

∵ ∠A = 90°
∴ ∠B + ∠C = 90°
But ∠B = ∠C
∴ ∠B + ∠B = 90°
⇒ 2∠B = 90°
90°
⇒ ∠B = $$\frac { { 90 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 45°
and ∠C = ∠B = 45°
Hence ∠B = ∠C = 45°

Question 12.
In the figure, PQRS is a square and SRT is an equilateral triangle. Prove that
(i) PT = QT
(ii) ∠TQR = 15°

Solution:
Given : PQRS is a square and SRT is an equilateral triangle. PT and QT are joined.

To prove : (i) PT = QT; (ii) ∠TQR = 15°
Proof : In ∆TSP and ∆TQR
ST = RT (Sides of equilateral triangle)
SP = PQ (Sides of square)
and ∠TSP = ∠TRQ (Each = 60° + 90°)
∴ ∆TSP ≅ ∆TQR (SAS axiom)
∴ PT = QT (c.p.c.t.)
In ∆TQR,
∵ RT = RQ (Square sides)
∠RTQ = ∠RQT
But ∠TRQ = 60° + 90° = 150°
∴ ∠RTQ + ∠RQT = 180° – 150° = 30°
∵ ∠PTQ = ∠RQT (Proved)
∠RQT = $$\frac { { 30 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 15°
⇒ ∠TQR = 15°

Question 13.
AB is a line segment. P and Q are points on opposite sides of AB such that each of them is equidistant from the ponits A and B (see figure). Show that the line PQ is perpendicular bisector of AB.

Solution:
Given : AB is a line segment.
P and Q are points such that they are equidistant from A and B
i.e. PA = PB and QA = QB AP, PB, QA, QB, PQ are joined
To prove : PQ is perpendicular bisector of AB

Proof : In ∆PAQ and ∆PBQ,
PA = PB (Given)
QA = QB (Given)
PQ = PQ (Common)
∴ ∆PAQ ≅ ∆PBQ (SSS axiom)
∴ ∠APQ = ∠BPQ (c.p.c.t.)
Now in ∆APC = ∆BPC
PA = PB (Given)
∆APC ≅ ∆BPC (Proved)
PC = PC (Common)
∴ ∆APC = ∆BPC (SAS axiom)
∴ AC = BC (c.p.c.t.)
and ∠PCA = ∠PCB (c.p.c.t.)
But ∠PCA + ∠PCB = 180° (Linear pair)
∴ ∠PCA = ∠PCB = 90°
∴ PC or PQ is perpendicular bisector of AB

(a) 90°
(b) 45°
(c) 60°

(a) 30°
(b) 45°
(c) 60°
(d) 90°
Solution:
In a right triangle, one angle = 90°
∴ Sum of other two acute angles = 180° – 90° = 90°
∵ Both angles are equal
∴ Each angle will be = $$\frac { { 90 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 45° (b)

(a) 75°
(b) 80°
(c) 40°
(d) 50°
Solution:

∴ Sum of interior opposite angles = 100°
∵ Both angles are equal
∴ Each angle will be = $$\frac { { 100 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 50° (d)

Question 4.
If one angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the other two angles, then the triangle is
(a) an isosceles triangle
(b) an obtuse triangle
(c) an equilateral triangle
(d) a right triangle
Solution:
Let ∠A, ∠B, ∠C be the angles of a ∆ABC and let ∠A = ∠B + ∠C

But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
( Sum of angles of a triangle)
∴ ∠A + ∠A = 180° ⇒ 2∠A = 180°
⇒ ∠A = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 90°
∴ ∆ is a right triangle (d)

Question 5.
Side BC of a triangle ABC has been produced to a point D such that ∠ACD = 120°. If ∠B = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$∠A, then ∠A is equal to
(a) 80°
(b) 75°
(c) 60°
(d) 90°
Solution:
Side BC of ∆ABC is produced to D, then

Ext. ∠ACB = ∠A + ∠B
(Exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its interior opposite angles)

Question 6.
In ∆ABC, ∠B = ∠C and ray AX bisects the exterior angle ∠DAC. If ∠DAX = 70°, then ∠ACB =
(a) 35°
(b) 90°
(c) 70°
(d) 55°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠B = ∠C
AX is the bisector of ext. ∠CAD
∠DAX = 70°

∴ ∠DAC = 70° x 2 = 140°
But Ext. ∠DAC = ∠B + ∠C
= ∠C + ∠C (∵ ∠B = ∠C)
= 2∠C
∴ 2∠C = 140° ⇒ ∠C = $$\frac { { 140 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ = 70°
∴ ∠ACB = 70° (c)

Question 7.
In a triangle, an exterior angle at a vertex is 95° and its one of the interior opposite angle is 55°, then the measure of the other interior angle is
(a) 55°
(b) 85°
(c) 40°
(d) 9.0°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, BA is produced to D such that ∠CAD = 95°
and let ∠C = 55° and ∠B = x°

∵ Exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its opposite interior angle
∴ ∠CAD = ∠B + ∠C ⇒ 95° = x + 55°
⇒ x = 95° – 55° = 40°
∴ Other interior angle = 40° (c)

Question 8.
If the sides of a triangle are produced in order, then the sum of the three exterior angles so formed is
(a) 90°
(b) 180°
(c) 270°
(d) 360°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, sides AB, BC and CA are produced in order, then exterior ∠FAB, ∠DBC and ∠ACE are formed

We know an exterior angles of a triangle is equal to the sum of its interior opposite angles
∴ ∠FAB = ∠B + ∠C
∠DBC = ∠C + ∠A and
∠ACE = ∠A + ∠B Adding we get,
∠FAB + ∠DBC + ∠ACE = ∠B + ∠C + ∠C + ∠A + ∠A + ∠B
= 2(∠A + ∠B + ∠C)
= 2 x 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
= 360° (d)

(a) 50°
(b) 90°
(c) 40°
(d) 100°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠A = 100°

Now, ∠BAD = $$\frac { { 100 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ = 50°
In ∆ABD,
∠BAD + ∠B + ∠D= 180°
(Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ ∠50° + ∠B + 90° = 180°
∠B + 140° = 180°
⇒ ∠B = 180° – 140° ∠B = 40° (c)

(a) 48°, 60°, 72°
(b) 50°, 60°, 70°
(c) 52°, 56°, 72°
(d) 42°, 60°, 76°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, BC is produced to D and ∠ACD = 108°

Ratio in ∠A : ∠B = 4:5
∵ Exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its opposite interior angles
∴ ∠ACD = ∠A + ∠B = 108°
Ratio in ∠A : ∠B = 4:5

Question 11.
In a ∆ABC, if ∠A = 60°, ∠B = 80° and the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at O, then ∠BOC =
(a) 60°
(b) 120°
(c) 150°
(d) 30°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠A = 60°, ∠B = 80°
∴ ∠C = 180° – (∠A + ∠B)
= 180° – (60° + 80°)
= 180° – 140° = 40°
Bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at O

Question 12.

(a) 100°
(b) 80°
(c) 90°
(d) 135°
Solution:
In the figure,

AB and CD intersect at O
and AC || DB, ∠CAB = 45°
and ∠CDB = 55°
∵ AC || DB
∴ ∠CAB = ∠ABD (Alternate angles)
In ∆OBD,
∠BOD = 180° – (∠CDB + ∠ABD)
= 180° – (55° + 45°)
= 180° – 100° = 80° (b)

Question 13.
In the figure, if EC || AB, ∠ECD = 70° and ∠BDO = 20°, then ∠OBD is

(a) 20°
(b) 50°
(c) 60°
(d) 70°
Solution:
In the figure, EC || AB
∠ECD = 70°, ∠BDO = 20°

∵ EC || AB
∠AOD = ∠ECD (Corresponding angles)
⇒ ∠AOD = 70°
In ∆OBD,
Ext. ∠AOD = ∠OBD + ∠BDO
70° = ∠OBD + 20°
⇒ ∠OBD = 70° – 20° = 50° (b)

Question 14.
In the figure, x + y =
(a) 270
(b) 230
(c) 210
(d) 190°

Solution:
In the figure

Ext. ∠OAE = ∠AOC + ∠ACO
⇒ x = 40° + 80° = 120°
Similarly,
Ext. ∠DBF = ∠ODB + ∠DOB
y = 70° + ∠DOB
[(∵ ∠AOC = ∠DOB) (vertically opp. angles)]
= 70° + 40° = 110°
∴ x+y= 120°+ 110° = 230° (b)

Question 15.
If the measures of angles of a triangle are in the ratio of 3 : 4 : 5, what is the measure of the smallest angle of the triangle?
(a) 25°
(b) 30°
(c) 45°
(d) 60°
Solution:
Ratio in the measures of the triangle =3:4:5
Sum of angles of a triangle = 180°
Let angles be 3x, 4x, 5x
Sum of angles = 3x + 4x + 5x = 12x
∴ Smallest angle = $$\frac { 180 x 3x }{ 12x }$$ = 45° (c)

Question 16.
In the figure, if AB ⊥ BC, then x =
(a) 18
(b) 22
(c) 25
(d) 32

Solution:
In the figure, AB ⊥ BC
∠AGF = 32°
∴ ∠CGB = ∠AGF (Vertically opposite angles)
= 32°

In ∆GCB, ∠B = 90°
∴ ∠CGB + ∠GCB = 90°
⇒ 32° + ∠GCB = 90°
⇒ ∠GCB = 90° – 32° = 58°
Now in ∆GDC,
Ext. ∠GCB = ∠CDG + ∠DGC
⇒ 58° = x + 14° + x
⇒ 2x + 14° = 58°
⇒ 2x = 58 – 14° = 44
⇒ x = $$\frac { 44 }{ 2 }$$ = 22°
∴ x = 22° (b)

Question 17.
In the figure, what is ∠ in terms of x and y?
(a) x + y + 180
(b) x + y – 180
(c) 180° -(x+y)
(d) x+y + 360°

Solution:
In the figure, BC is produced both sides CA and BA are also produced
In ∆ABC,
∠B = 180° -y
and ∠C 180° – x

∴ z = ∠A = 180° – (B + C)
= 180° – (180 – y + 180 -x)
= 180° – (360° – x – y)
= 180° – 360° + x + y = x + y – 180° (b)

Question 18.
In the figure, for which value of x is l1 || l2?
(a) 37
(b) 43
(c) 45
(d) 47

Solution:
In the figure, l1 || l2
∴ ∠EBA = ∠BAH (Alternate angles)
∴ ∠BAH = 78°

⇒ ∠BAC + ∠CAH = 78°
⇒ ∠BAC + 35° = 78°
⇒ ∠BAC = 78° – 35° = 43°
In ∆ABC, ∠C = 90°
∴ ∠ABC + ∠BAC = 90°
⇒ x + 43° = 90° ⇒ x = 90° – 43°
∴ x = 47° (d)

Question 19.
In the figure, what is y in terms of x?

Solution:
In ∆ABC,
∠ACB = 180° – (x + 2x)
= 180° – 3x …(i)
and in ∆BDG,
∠BED = 180° – (2x + y) …(ii)
∠EGC = ∠AGD (Vertically opposite angles)
= 3y

∠B + ∠ACB + ∠CGE + ∠BED = 360° (Sum of angles of a quadrilateral)
⇒ 2x+ 180° – 3x + 3y + 180°- 2x-y = 360°
⇒ -3x + 2y = 0
⇒ 3x = 2y ⇒ y = $$\frac { 3 }{ 2 }$$x (a)

Question 20.
In the figure, what is the value of x?
(a) 35
(b) 45
(c) 50
(d) 60

Solution:
In the figure, side AB is produced to D
∴ ∠CBA + ∠CBD = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ 7y + 5y = 180°
⇒ 12y = 180°
⇒ y = $$\frac { 180 }{ 12 }$$ = 15
and Ext. ∠CBD = ∠A + ∠C
⇒ 7y = 3y + x
⇒ 7y -3y = x
⇒ 4y = x
∴ x = 4 x 15 = 60 (d)

Question 21.
In the figure, the value of x is
(a) 65°
(b) 80°
(c) 95°
(d) 120°

Solution:
In the figure, ∠A = 55°, ∠D = 25° and ∠C = 40°

Now in ∆ABD,
Ext. ∠DBC = ∠A + ∠D
= 55° + 25° = 80°
Similarly, in ∆BCE,
Ext. ∠DEC = ∠EBC + ∠ECB
= 80° + 40° = 120° (d)

Question 22.
In the figure, if BP || CQ and AC = BC, then the measure of x is
(a) 20°
(b) 25°
(c) 30°
(d) 35°

Solution:
In the figure, AC = BC, BP || CQ

∵ BP || CQ
∴ ∠PBC – ∠QCD
⇒ 20° + ∠ABC = 70°
⇒ ∠ABC = 70° – 20° = 50°
∵ BC = AC
∴ ∠ACB = ∠ABC (Angles opposite to equal sides)
= 50°
Now in ∆ABC,
Ext. ∠ACD = ∠B + ∠A
⇒ x + 70° = 50° + 50°
⇒ x + 70° = 100°
∴ x = 100° – 70° = 30° (c)

Question 23.
In the figure, AB and CD are parallel lines and transversal EF intersects them at P and Q respectively. If ∠APR = 25°, ∠RQC = 30° and ∠CQF = 65°, then
(a) x = 55°, y = 40°
(b) x = 50°, y = 45°
(c) x = 60°, y = 35°
(d) x = 35°, y = 60°

Solution:
In the figure,
∵ AB || CD, EF intersects them at P and Q respectively,
∠APR = 25°, ∠RQC = 30°, ∠CQF = 65°
∵ AB || CD
∴ ∠APQ = ∠CQF (Corresponding anlges)
⇒ y + 25° = 65°
⇒ y = 65° – 25° = 40°
and APQ + PQC = 180° (Co-interior angles)

y + 25° + ∠1 +30°= 180°
40° + 25° + ∠1 + 30° = 180°
⇒ ∠1 + 95° = 180°
∴ ∠1 = 180° – 95° = 85°
Now, ∆PQR,
∠RPQ + ∠PQR + ∠PRQ = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ 40° + x + 85° = 180°
⇒ 125° + x = 180°
⇒ x = 180° – 125° = 55°
∴ x = 55°, y = 40° (a)

Question 24.
The base BC of triangle ABC is produced both ways and the measure of exterior angles formed are 94° and 126°. Then, ∠BAC = ?
(a) 94°
(b) 54°
(c) 40°
(d) 44°
Solution:
In ∆ABC, base BC is produced both ways and ∠ACD = 94°, ∠ABE = 126°

Ext. ∠ACD = ∠BAC + ∠ABC
⇒ 94° = ∠BAC + ∠ABC
Similarly, ∠ABE = ∠BAC + ∠ACB
⇒ 126° = ∠BAC + ∠ACB
94° + 126° = ∠BAC + ∠ABC + ∠ACB + ∠BAC
220° = 180° + ∠BAC
∴ ∠BAC = 220° -180° = 40° (c)

Question 25.

(a) 45°

Question 1.
Define a triangle.
Solution:
A figure bounded by three lines segments in a plane is called a triangle.

Question 2.
Write the sum of the angles of an obtuse triangle.
Solution:
The sum of angles of an obtuse triangle is 180°.

Question 3.
In ∆ABC, if ∠B = 60°, ∠C = 80° and the bisectors of angles ∠ABC and ∠ACB meet at a point O, then find the measure of ∠BOC.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠B = 60°, ∠C = 80°
OB and OC are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C
∵ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒ ∠A + 60° + 80° = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 140° = 180°
∴ ∠A = 180°- 140° = 40°

= 90° + – x 40° = 90° + 20° = 110°

Question 4.
If the angles of a triangle are in the ratio 2:1:3. Then find the measure of smallest angle.
Solution:
Sum of angles of a triangle = 180°
Ratio in the angles = 2 : 1 : 3
Let first angle = 2x
Second angle = x
and third angle = 3x
∴ 2x + x + 3x = 180° ⇒ 6x = 180°
∴ x = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 6 }$$  = 30°
∴ First angle = 2x = 2 x 30° = 60°
Second angle = x = 30°
and third angle = 3x = 3 x 30° = 90°
Hence angles are 60°, 30°, 90°

Question 5.
State exterior angle theorem.
Solution:
Given : In ∆ABC, side BC is produced to D

To prove : ∠ACD = ∠A + ∠B
Proof: In ∆ABC,
∠A + ∠B + ∠ACB = 180° …(i) (Sum of angles of a triangle)
and ∠ACD + ∠ACB = 180° …(ii) (Linear pair)
From (i) and (ii)
∠ACD + ∠ACB = ∠A + ∠B + ∠ACB
∠ACD = ∠A + ∠B
Hence proved.

Question 6.
The sum of two angles of a triangle is equal to its third angle. Determine the measure of the third angle.
Solution:
In ∆ABC,
∠A + ∠C = ∠B

But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
∴ ∠B + ∠A + ∠C = 180°
⇒ ∠B + ∠B = 180°
⇒ 2∠B = 180°
⇒ ∠B = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 90°
∴ Third angle = 90°

Question 7.
In the figure, if AB || CD, EF || BC, ∠BAC = 65° and ∠DHF = 35°, find ∠AGH.

Solution:
Given : In figure, AB || CD, EF || BC ∠BAC = 65°, ∠DHF = 35°

∵ EF || BC
∴ ∠A = ∠ACH (Alternate angle)
∴ ∠ACH = 65°
∵∠GHC = ∠DHF
(Vertically opposite angles)
∴ ∠GHC = 35°
Now in ∆GCH,
Ext. ∠AGH = ∠GCH + ∠GHC
= 65° + 35° = 100°

Question 8.
In the figure, if AB || DE and BD || FG such that ∠FGH = 125° and ∠B = 55°, find x and y.

Solution:
In the figure, AB || DF, BD || FG

∠FGH = 125° and ∠B = 55°
∠FGH + FGE = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ 125° + y – 180°
⇒ y= 180°- 125° = 55°
∵ BA || FD and BD || FG
∠B = ∠F = 55°
Now in ∆EFG,
∠F + ∠FEG + ∠FGE = 180°
(Angles of a triangle)
⇒ 55° + x + 55° = 180°
⇒ x+ 110°= 180°
∴ x= 180°- 110° = 70°
Hence x = 70, y = 55°

Question 9.
If the angles A, B and C of ∆ABC satisfy the relation B – A = C – B, then find the measure of ∠B.
Solution:
In ∆ABC,
∠A + ∠B + ∠C= 180° …(i)
and B – A = C – B

⇒ B + B = A + C ⇒ 2B = A + C
From (i),
B + 2B = 180° ⇒ 3B = 180°
∠B = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 3 }$$ = 60°
Hence ∠B = 60°

Question 10.
In ∆ABC, if bisectors of ∠ABC and ∠ACB intersect at O at angle of 120°, then find the measure of ∠A.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, bisectors of ∠B and ∠C intersect at O and ∠BOC = 120°

But ∠BOC = 90°+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$
90°+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A= 120°
⇒ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A= 120°-90° = 30°
∴ ∠A = 2 x 30° = 60°

Question 11.
If the side BC of ∆ABC is produced on both sides, then write the difference between the sum of the exterior angles so formed and ∠A.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, side BC is produced on both sides forming exterior ∠ABE and ∠ACD
Ext. ∠ABE = ∠A + ∠ACB
and Ext. ∠ACD = ∠ABC + ∠A

∠ABE + ∠ACD = ∠A + ∠ACB + ∠A + ∠ABC
⇒ ∠ABE + ∠ACD – ∠A = ∠A 4- ∠ACB + ∠A + ∠ABC – ∠A (Subtracting ∠A from both sides)
= ∠A + ∠ABC + ∠ACB = ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)

Question 12.
In a triangle ABC, if AB = AC and AB is produced to D such that BD = BC, find ∠ACD: ∠ADC.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, AB = AC
AB is produced to D such that BD = BC
DC are joined
In ∆ABC, AB = AC
∴ ∠ABC = ∠ACB
In ∆ BCD, BD = BC
∴ ∠BDC = ∠BCD
and Ext. ∠ABC = ∠BDC + ∠BCD = 2∠BDC (∵ ∠BDC = ∠BCD)
⇒ ∠ACB = 2∠BCD (∵ ∠ABC = ∠ACB)
⇒ ∠ACB + ∠BDC = 2∠BDC + ∠BDC
⇒ ∠ACB + ∠BCD = 3 ∠BDC (∵ ∠BDC = ∠BCD)
⇒ ∠ACB = 3∠BDC

Question 13.
In the figure, side BC of AABC is produced to point D such that bisectors of ∠ABC and ∠ACD meet at a point E. If ∠BAC = 68°, find ∠BEC.

Solution:
In the figure,

side BC of ∆ABC is produced to D such that bisectors of ∠ABC and ∠ACD meet at E
∠BAC = 68°
In ∆ABC,
Ext. ∠ACD = ∠A + ∠B
⇒ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠ACD = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A + $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠B
⇒ ∠2= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A + ∠1 …(i)
But in ∆BCE,
Ext. ∠2 = ∠E + ∠l
⇒ ∠E + ∠l = ∠2 = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A + ∠l [From (i)]
⇒ ∠E = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A = $$\frac { { 68 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  =34°

In the figure, the sides BC, CA and AB of a ∆ABC have been produced to D, E and F respectively. If ∠ACD = 105° and ∠EAF = 45°, find all the angles of the ∆ABC.

Solution:
In ∆ABC, sides BC, CA and BA are produced to D, E and F respectively.
∠ACD = 105° and ∠EAF = 45°
∠ACD + ∠ACB = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ 105° + ∠ACB = 180°
⇒ ∠ACB = 180°- 105° = 75°
∠BAC = ∠EAF (Vertically opposite angles)
= 45°
But ∠BAC + ∠ABC + ∠ACB = 180°
⇒ 45° + ∠ABC + 75° = 180°
⇒ 120° +∠ABC = 180°
⇒ ∠ABC = 180°- 120°
∴ ∠ABC = 60°

BC is produced to D and CE ⊥ AC
∵ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangles)
Let∠A = 3x, then ∠B = 2x and ∠C = x
∴ 3x + 2x + x = 180° ⇒ 6x = 180°
⇒ x = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 6 }$$  = 30°
∴ ∠A = 3x = 3 x 30° = 90°
∠B = 2x = 2 x 30° = 60°
∠C = x = 30°
In ∆ABC,
Ext. ∠ACD = ∠A + ∠B

⇒ ∠A + 90° + ∠DOE + 90° = 360°
∠A + ∠DOE = 360° – 90° – 90° = 180°
But ∠BOC = ∠DOE (Vertically opposite angles)
⇒ ∠A + ∠BOC = 180°
∴ ∠BOC = 180° – ∠A

Question 15.
In the figure, AE bisects ∠CAD and ∠B = ∠C. Prove that AE || BC.

Solution:
Given : In AABC, BA is produced and AE is the bisector of ∠CAD
∠B = ∠C

To prove : AE || BC
Proof: In ∆ABC, BA is produced
∴ Ext. ∠CAD = ∠B + ∠C
⇒ 2∠EAC = ∠C + ∠C (∵ AE is the bisector of ∠CAE) (∵ ∠B = ∠C)
⇒ 2∠EAC = 2∠C
⇒ ∠EAC = ∠C
But there are alternate angles
∴ AE || BC

Question 1.
If the ratio of mode and median of a certain data is 6 : 5, then find the ratio of its mean and median.
Solution:
We know that
Mode = 3 median – 2 mean…(i)
and $$\frac { mode }{ median }$$ = $$\frac { 6 }{ 5 }$$
Mode = $$\frac { 6 }{ 5 }$$median
∴From (i), $$\frac { 6 }{ 5 }$$ median = 3 median – 2 mean
=> 2 mean = 3 median – $$\frac { 6 }{ 5 }$$median
2 mean = $$\frac { 15-6 }{ 5 }$$median = $$\frac { 9 }{ 5 }$$median
$$\frac { mean }{ median }$$ = $$\frac { 9 }{ 5X2 }$$ = $$\frac { 9 }{ 10 }$$
∴Ratio = 9:10

Question 2.
If the mean of x + 2, 2x + 3, 3x + 4, 4x + 5 is x + 2, find x.
Solution:
Mean of x + 2, 2x + 3, 3x + 4, 4x + 5 = x + 2
=> $$\frac { x + 2+2x + 3+3x + 4+4x + 5 }{ 4 }$$ = x + 2
=> 10x + 14 = 4x + 8
=> 10x – 4x = 8 – 14
=> 6x= – 6
∴ x = – 1

Question 3.
If the median of scores ,$$\frac { x }{ 2 }$$, $$\frac { x }{ 3 }$$, $$\frac { x }{ 4 }$$, $$\frac { x }{ 5}$$ and $$\frac { x }{ 6 }$$ (where x > 0) is 6, then find the value $$\frac { x }{ 6 }$$
Solution:
$$\frac { x }{ 2 }$$, $$\frac { x }{ 3 }$$, $$\frac { x }{ 4 }$$, $$\frac { x }{ 5}$$, $$\frac { x }{ 6 }$$
Here n = 5
Median = $$\frac { n+1 }{ 2 }$$ th term = $$\frac { 5+1 }{ 2 }$$ th
$$\frac { 6 }{ 2 }$$ = 3rd term = $$\frac { x }{ 4 }$$
$$\frac { x }{ 4 }$$ = 6 => x = 24
$$\frac { x }{ 6 }$$ = $$\frac { 24 }{ 6 }$$ = 4
∴Hence = $$\frac { x }{ 6 }$$ = 4

Question 4.
If the mean of 2, 4, 6, 8, x, y is 5, then find the value of x + y.
Solution:
Mean of 2, 4, 6, 8, x, y is 5
$$\frac { 2+4+6+8+x+y }{ 6 }$$ = 5
$$\frac { 20+x+y }{ 6 }$$ = 5
=> 20 + (x +y) = 30
=> x + y = 30 – 20 = 10
∴x + y = 10

Question 5.
If the mode of scores 3, 4, 3, 5, 4, 6, 6, x is 4, find the value of x.
Solution:
Mode of 3, 4, 3, 5, 4, 6, 6, x is 4
∴ 4 comes in maximum times
But here ,
3 2
4 2
5 1
6 2
3, 4 and 6 are equal in number
∴ x must be 4 so that it becomes in maximum times

Question 6.
If the median of 33, 28, 20. 25, 34, x is 29. find the maximum possible value of x.
Solution:
Median of 33, 28, 20, 25, 34, x is 29
Now arranging in ascending order 20, 25, 28, x, 33, 34
Here n = 6
Median = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \left[ \frac { 6 }{ 2 } th\quad term+\left( \frac { 6 }{ 2 } +1 \right) th\quad term \right]$$
29 = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [3rd term + 4th term]
29 = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [28+x]
58 = 28 + x
=> x = 58 – 28 = 30
∴Possible value of x = 30

Question 7.
If the median of the scores 1, 2, x, 4, 5 (where 1 <2 <x <4 <5) is 3, then find the mean of the scores.
Solution:
Scores are 1, 2, x, 4, 5 and median 3
Here n = 5 which is odd
Median = $$\frac { n+1 }{ 2 }$$ th term = $$\frac { 5+1 }{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { 6 }{ 2 }$$ th
=> 3 = 3rd term = x
=> 3 = x
∴ x = 3
Mean of the score = $$\frac { 1+2+3+4+5 }{ 5 }$$ = 3

Question 8.
If the ratio of mean and median of a certain data is 2 : 3, then find the ratio of its mode and mean.
Solution:
We know that mode = 3 median – 2 mean

$$\frac { mode }{ mean }$$ = $$\frac { 5 }{ 2 }$$
Ratio in mode and mean = 5 : 2

Question 9.
The arithmetic mean and mode of a data are 24 and 12 respectively, then find the median of the data.
Solution:
Mean = 24
Mode = 12
We know that mode = 3 median – 2 mean
12 = 3 median – 2 x 24
12 = 3 median – 48
3 median 12 + 48 = 60
Median = $$\frac { 60 }{ 3 }$$ = 20

Question 10.
If the difference of mode and median of a data is 24, then find the difference of median and mean.
Solution:
Mode – Median = 24
Mode = 24 + median
But mode = 3 median – 2 mean
3 median – 2 mean = 24 + median
3 median – median – 2 mean = 24
=> 2 median – 2 mean = 24
=> Median – Mean = 12 (Dividing by 2)

These Solutions are part of RD Sharma Class 9 Solutions. Here we have given RD Sharma Class 9 Solutions Chapter 11 Co-ordinate Geometry Ex 11.1

Other Exercises

Question 1.
In a ∆ABC, if ∠A = 55°, ∠B = 40°, find ∠C.
Solution:
∵ Sum of three angles of a triangle is 180°
∴ In ∆ABC, ∠A = 55°, ∠B = 40°
But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)

⇒ 55° + 40° + ∠C = 180°
⇒ 95° + ∠C = 180°
∴ ∠C= 180° -95° = 85°

Question 2.
If the angles of a triangle are in the ratio 1:2:3, determine three angles.
Solution:
Ratio in three angles of a triangle =1:2:3
Let first angle = x
Then second angle = 2x
and third angle = 3x
∴ x + 2x + 3x = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)
⇒6x = 180°
⇒x = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 6 }$$  = 30°
∴ First angle = x = 30°
Second angle = 2x = 2 x 30° = 60°
and third angle = 3x = 3 x 30° = 90°
∴ Angles are 30°, 60°, 90°

Question 3.
The angles of a triangle are (x – 40)°, (x – 20)° and ($$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x – 10)°. Find the value of x.
Solution:
∵ Sum of three angles of a triangle = 180°
∴ (x – 40)° + (x – 20)° + ($$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$x-10)0 = 180°
⇒ x – 40° + x – 20° + $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$x – 10° = 180°
⇒ x + x+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$x – 70° = 180°
⇒ $$\frac { 5 }{ 2 }$$x = 180° + 70° = 250°
⇒ x = $$\frac { { 250 }^{ \circ }x 2 }{ 5 }$$  = 100°
∴ x = 100°

Question 4.
Two angles of a triangle are equal and the third angle is greater than each of those angles by 30°. Determine all the angles of the triangle.
Solution:
Let each of the two equal angles = x
Then third angle = x + 30°
But sum of the three angles of a triangle is 180°
∴ x + x + x + 30° = 180°
⇒ 3x + 30° = 180°
⇒3x = 150° ⇒x = $$\frac { { 150 }^{ \circ } }{ 3 }$$ = 50°
∴ Each equal angle = 50°
and third angle = 50° + 30° = 80°
∴ Angles are 50°, 50° and 80°

Question 5.
If one angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the other two, show that the triangle is a right triangle.
Solution:
In the triangle ABC,

∠B = ∠A + ∠C
But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
⇒∠B + ∠A + ∠C = 180°
⇒∠B + ∠B = 180°
⇒2∠B = 180°
∴ ∠B = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ = 90°
∵ One angle of the triangle is 90°
∴ ∆ABC is a right triangle.

Question 6.
Can a triangle have:
(i) Two right angles?
(ii) Two obtuse angles?
(iii) Two acute angles?
(iv) All angles more than 60°?
(v) All angles less than 60°?
(vi) All angles equal to 60°?
Solution:
(i) In a triangle, two right-angles cannot be possible. We know that sum of three angles is 180° and if there are two right-angles, then the third angle will be zero which is not possible.
(ii) In a triangle, two obtuse angle cannot be possible. We know that the sum of the three angles of a triangle is 180° and if there are
two obtuse angle, then the third angle will be negative which is not possible.
(iii) In a triangle, two acute angles are possible as sum of three angles of a trianlge is 180°.
(iv) All angles more than 60°, they are also not possible as the sum will be more than 180°.
(v) All angles less than 60°. They are also not possible as the sum will be less than 180°.
(vi) All angles equal to 60°. This is possible as the sum will be 60° x 3 = 180°.

Question 7.
The angles of a triangle are arranged in ascending order of magnitude. If the difference between two consecutive angle is 10°, find the three angles.
Solution:
Let three angles of a triangle be x°, (x + 10)°, (x + 20)°
But sum of three angles of a triangle is 180°
∴ x + (x+ 10)° + (x + 20) = 180°
⇒ x + x+10°+ x + 20 = 180°
⇒ 3x + 30° = 180°
⇒ 3x = 180° – 30° = 150°
∴ x = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ = 50°
∴ Angle are 50°, 50 + 10, 50 + 20
i.e. 50°, 60°, 70°

Question 8.
ABC is a triangle is which ∠A = 72°, the internal bisectors of angles B and C meet in O. Find the magnitude of ∠BOC.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, ∠A = 12° and bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at O

Now ∠B + ∠C = 180° – 12° = 108°
∵ OB and OC are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C respectively
∴ ∠OBC + ∠OCB = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ (B + C)
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x 108° = 54°
But in ∆OBC,
∴ ∠OBC + ∠OCB + ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ 54° + ∠BOC = 180°
∠BOC = 180°-54°= 126°
OR
According to corollary,
∠BOC = 90°+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A
= 90+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x 72° = 90° + 36° = 126°

Question 9.
The bisectors of base angles of a triangle cannot enclose a right angle in any case.
Solution:
In right ∆ABC, ∠A is the vertex angle and OB and OC are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C respectively
To prove : ∠BOC cannot be a right angle
Proof: ∵ OB and OC are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C respectively

∴ ∠BOC = 90° x $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A
Let ∠BOC = 90°, then
$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A = O
⇒∠A = O
Which is not possible because the points A, B and C will be on the same line Hence, ∠BOC cannot be a right angle.

Question 10.
If the bisectors of the base angles of a triangle enclose an angle of 135°. Prove that the triangle is a right triangle.
Solution:
Given : In ∆ABC, OB and OC are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C and ∠BOC = 135°

To prove : ∆ABC is a right angled triangle
Proof: ∵ Bisectors of base angles ∠B and ∠C of the ∆ABC meet at O
∴ ∠BOC = 90°+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$∠A
But ∠BOC =135°
∴ 90°+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A = 135°
⇒ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$∠A= 135° -90° = 45°
∴ ∠A = 45° x 2 = 90°
∴ ∆ABC is a right angled triangle

Question 11.
In a ∆ABC, ∠ABC = ∠ACB and the bisectors of ∠ABC and ∠ACB intersect at O such that ∠BOC = 120°. Show that ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°.
Solution:
Given : In ∠ABC, BO and CO are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C respectively and ∠BOC = 120° and ∠ABC = ∠ACB

To prove : ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°
Proof : ∵ BO and CO are the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C
∴ ∠BOC = 90° + $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$∠A
But ∠BOC = 120°
∴ 90°+ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A = 120°
∴ $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ ∠A = 120° – 90° = 30°
∴ ∠A = 60°
∵ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
∠B + ∠C = 180° – 60° = 120° and ∠B = ∠C
∵ ∠B = ∠C = $$\frac { { 120 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$ = 60°
Hence ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°

Question 12.
If each angle of a triangle is less than the sum of the other two, show that the triangle is acute angled.
Solution:
In a ∆ABC,
Let ∠A < ∠B + ∠C

⇒∠A + ∠A < ∠A + ∠B + ∠C
⇒ 2∠A < 180°
⇒ ∠A < 90° (∵ Sum of angles of a triangle is 180°)
Similarly, we can prove that
∠B < 90° and ∠C < 90°
∴ Each angle of the triangle are acute angle.

92, 35, 67, 85, 72, 81, 56, 51, 42. 69
Arranging in ascending order = 35, 42, 51, 56, 67, 69, 72, 81, 85, 92
Here n = 10 which is even
Median = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \left[ \frac { n }{ 2 } th\quad term+\left( \frac { n }{ 2 } +1 \right) th\quad term \right]$$
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [5th term + 6th term]
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ (67+69) = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x 136 = 68

Question 9.
Numbers 50, 42, 35, 2x + 10, 2x – 8, 12, 11, 8 are written in descending order and their median is 25, find x.
Solution:
50, 42, 35, 2x + 10, 2x – 8, 12, 11, 8 are in descending order
Here n = 8 which is even
Now Median = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \left[ \frac { n }{ 2 } th\quad term+\left( \frac { n }{ 2 } +1 \right) th\quad term \right]$$
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [4th term + 5th term] = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$[2x + 10 + 2x – 8]
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [4x + 2] = 2x + 1
But median = 25
2x + 1 = 25
=> 2x = 25 – 1 = 24
=> $$\frac { 24 }{ 2 }$$ = 12
Hence x = 12

Question 10.
Find the median of the following observations 46, 64, 87, 41, 58, 77, 35, 90, 55, 92, 33. If 92 is replaced by 99 and 41 by 43 in the above data, find the new median?
Solution:
46, 64, 87, 41, 58, 77, 35, 90, 55, 92, 33
Writing in ascending order = 33, 35, 41, 46, 55, 58, 64, 77, 87, 90, 92
Here n = 11 which is odd
Median = $$\frac { n+1 }{ 2 }$$ th term
= $$\frac { 11+1 }{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { 12 }{ 2 }$$
= 6th term = 58
By replacing 92 by 93 and 41 by 43, then new order will be
33, 35, 43, 46, 55, 58, 64, 77, 87, 90, 99
Median = 6th term = 58

Question 11.
Find the median of the following data : 41, 43, 127, 99, 61, 92, 71, 58, 57. If 58 is replaced by 85, what will be the new median.
Solution:
41, 43, 127, 99, 61, 92, 71, 58, 57
Arranging in ascending order = 41, 43, 57, 58, 61, 71, 92, 99, 127
Here n = 9 which is odd
Median = $$\frac { n+1 }{ 2 }$$ th term = $$\frac { 9+1 }{ 2 }$$ th term
= $$\frac { 10 }{ 2 }$$ = 5th term = 61
By change 58 by 92, we get new order = 41, 43, 57, 61, 71, 92, 92, 99, 127
Median = 5th term = 71

Question 12.
The weights (in kg) of 15 students are : 31, 35, 27, 29, 32, 43, 37, 41, 34, 28, 36, 44, 45, 42, 30. Find the median. If the weight 44 kg is replaced by 46 kg and 27 kg by 25 kg, find the new median.
Solution:
Weights of 15 students are 31, 35, 27, 29, 32, 43, 37, 41, 34, 28, 36, 44, 45, 42, 30
Writing in ascending order = 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45
here n = 15 which is odd
n+1 15+1
Median = $$\frac { n+1 }{ 2 }$$ th term = $$\frac { 15+1 }{ 2 }$$
= $$\frac { 16 }{ 2 }$$th term = 8th term = 35 kg
By replacing 44 kg by 46 kg and 27 kg by 25 kg we get new order,
25, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 41, 42, 43, 45, 46
Median = 8th term = 35 kg

Question 13.
The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median of the data is 63, find the value of x: 29, 32, 48, 50, x, x + 2, 72, 78, 84, 95
Solution:
Median = 63
29, 32, 48, 50, x, x + 2, 72, 78, 84, 95
Here n = 10 which is even
median = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \left[ \frac { n }{ 2 } th\quad term+\left( \frac { n }{ 2 } +1 \right) th\quad term \right]$$
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \left[ \frac { 10 }{ 2 } th\quad term+\left( \frac { 10 }{ 2 } +1 \right) th\quad term \right]$$
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [5th term + 6th term]
= $$\frac { 16 }{ 2 }$$ [x+x+2] = $$\frac { 2x + 2 }{ 2 }$$ = x + 1
x + 1 = 63 = x = 63 – 1 = 62
Hence x = 62

Question 11.
Candidates of four schools appear in a mathematics test. The data were as follows:

If the average score of the candidates of all the four schools is 66, find the number of candidates that appeared from school III.
Solution:
Let number of candidates in school III = p
Then total number of candidates in 4 schools = 60 + 48 + p + 40 = 148 + p
Average score of 4 schools = 66
∴Total score = (148 + p) x 66
Now mean score of 60 in school I = 75 .
∴Total = 60 x 75 = 4500
In school II, mean of 48 = 80
∴Total = 48 x 80 = 3840
In school III, mean of p = 55
∴Total = 55 x p = 55p
and in school IV, mean of 40 = 50
∴Total = 40 x 50 = 2000
Now total of candidates of 4 schools = 148 + p
and total score = 4500 + 3840 + 55p + 2000 = 10340 + 55p
∴10340 + 55p = (148 + p) x 66 = 9768 + 66p
=> 10340 – 9768 = 66p – 55p
=> 572 = 11p
∴ p = $$\frac { 572 }{ 11 }$$
Number of candidates in school III = 52

Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:
Question 1.
One angle is equal to three times its supplement. The measure of the angle is
(a) 130°
(b) 135°
(c) 90°
(d) 120°
Solution:
Let required angle = x
Then its supplement = (180° – x)
x = 3(180° – x) = 540° – 3x
⇒ x + 3x = 540°
⇒ 4x = 540°
⇒ x = $$\frac { { 540 }^{ \circ } }{ 4 }$$  = 135°
∴ Required angle = 135° (b)

Question 2.
Two straight lines AB and CD intersect one another at the point O. If ∠AOC + ∠COB + ∠BOD = 274°, then ∠AOD =
(a) 86°
(b) 90°
(c) 94°
(d) 137°
Solution:
Sum of angles at a point O = 360°
Sum of three angles ∠AOC + ∠COB + ∠BOD = 274°

∴ Fourth angle ∠AOD = 360° – 274°
= 86° (a)

Question 3.
Two straight lines AB and CD cut each other at O. If ∠BOD = 63°, then ∠BOC =
(a) 63°
(b) 117°
(c) 17°
(d) 153°
Solution:
CD is a line
∴ ∠BOD + ∠BOC = 180° (Linear pair)

⇒ 63° + ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ ∠BOC = 180° – 63°
∴ ∠BOC =117° (b)

Question 4.

When two straight lines intersect:
(iii) opposite angles are equal
(iv) opposite angles are supplementary Of these statements
(a) (i) and (iii) are correct

(a) 30°
(b) 34°
(c) 36°
(d) none of these
Solution:
∵ POQ is a straight line
∴ ∠POR + ∠QOR = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ 3x + 2x + 10° = 180°
⇒ 5x = 180 – 10° = 170°
∴ x = $$\frac { { 170 }^{ \circ } }{ 5 }$$  = 34° (b)

Question 6.
In the figure, AOB is a straight line. If ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 85°, then ∠COD =
(a) 85°
(b) 90°
(c) 95°
(d) 100°

Solution:
AOB is a straight line,
OC and OD are rays on it
and ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 85°
But ∠AOC + ∠BOD + ∠COD = 180°
⇒ 85° + ∠COD = 180°
∠COD = 180° – 85° = 95° (c)

Question 7.
In the figure, the value of y is
(a) 20°
(b) 30°
(c) 45°
(d) 60°

Solution:
In the figure,

y = x (Vertically opposite angles)
∠1 = 3x
∠2 = 3x
∴ 2(x + 3x + 2x) = 360° (Angles at a point)
2x + 6x + 4x = 360°
12x = 360° ⇒ x = $$\frac { { 360 }^{ \circ } }{ 12 }$$  = 30°
∴ y = x = 30° (b)

Question 8.
In the figure, the value of x is
(a) 12
(b) 15
(c) 20
(d) 30

Solution:
∠1 = 3x+ 10 (Vertically opposite angles)
But x + ∠1 + ∠2 = 180°

⇒ x + 3x + 10° + 90° = 180°
⇒ 4x = 180° – 10° – 90° = 80°
x = $$\frac { { 80 }^{ \circ } }{ 4 }$$ = 20   (c)

Question 9.
In the figure, which of the following statements must be true?

(iii) b + f= c + e
(a) (i) only
(b) (ii) only
(c) (iii) only
(d) (ii) and (iii) only

Solution:
In the figure,
(i) a + b = d + c
a° = d°
b° = e°
c°= f°
(ii) a + b + e = 180°
a + e + c = 180°
⇒ a + c + e = 180°
(iii) b + f= e + c
∴ (ii) and (iii) are true statements (d)

(a) 70°
(b) 80°
(c) 90°
(d) 180°
Solution:
Two lines AB and CD intersect at O

∠AOC + ∠COB + ∠BOD = 270° …(i)
But ∠AOC + ∠COB + ∠BOD + ∠DOA = 360° …(ii)
Subtracting (i) from (ii),
∠DOA = 360° – 270° = 90°
But ∠DOA + ∠AOC = 180°
∴ ∠AOC = 180° – 90° = 90° (c)

Question 13.
In the figure, PQ || RS, ∠AEF = 95°, ∠BHS = 110° and ∠ABC = x°. Then the value of x is
(a) 15°

(c) 70°
(d) 35°

Solution:
In the figure,

PQ || RS, ∠AEF = 95°
∠BHS = 110°, ∠ABC = x
∵ PQ || RS,
∴ ∠AEF = ∠1 = 95° (Corresponding anlges)
But ∠1 + ∠2 = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ ∠2 = 180° – ∠1 = 180° – 95° = 85°
In ∆AGH,
Ext. ∠BHS = ∠2 +x
⇒ 110° = 85° + x
⇒ x= 110°-85° = 25° (b)

Question 14.
In the figure, if l1 || l2, what is the value of x?
(a) 90°
(b) 85°
(c) 75°
(d) 70°

Solution:
In the figure,

∠1 = 58° (Vertically opposite angles)
Similarly, ∠2 = 37°
∵ l1 || l2, EF is transversal
∠GEF + EFD = 180° (Co-interior angles)
⇒ ∠2 + ∠l +x = 180°
⇒ 37° + 58° + x = 180°
⇒ 95° + x= 180°
x = 180°-95° = 85° (b)

Question 15.
In the figure, if l1 || l2, what is x + y in terms of w and z?

(a) 90 + x
(b) 90 + 2x
(c) 90 – $$\frac { x }{ 2 }$$
(d) 90 – 2x

Solution:
In the figure,

l1 || l2 and l3 || l4 and m is the angle bisector
∴ ∠2 = ∠3 = y
∵ l1 || l2
∠1 = x (Corresponding angles)
∵ l3 || l4
∴ ∠1 + (∠2 + ∠3) = 180° (Co-interior angles)
⇒ x + 2y= 180°
⇒ 2y= 180°-x
⇒ y = $$\frac { { 540 }^{ \circ }-x }{ 4 }$$
= 90° – $$\frac { x }{ 2 }$$ (c)

Question 18.
In the figure, if 11| m, what is the value of x?
(a) 60
(b) 50
(c) 45
d) 30

Solution:
In the figure, l || m and n is the transversal

⇒ y = 25°
But 2y + 25° = x+ 15°
(Vertically opposite angles) ⇒ x = 2y + 25° – 15° = 2y+ 10°
= 2 x 25°+10° = 50°+10° = 60° (a)

Question 19.
In the figure, if AB || HF and DE || FG, then the measure of ∠FDE is
(a) 108°
(b) 80°
(c) 100°
(d) 90°

Solution:
In the figure,
AB || HF, DE || FG

∴ HF || AB
∠1 =28° (Corresponding angles)
But ∠1 + ∠FDE + 72° – 180° (Angles of a straight line)
⇒ 28° + ∠FDE + 72° = 180°
⇒ ∠FDE + 100° = 180°
⇒ ∠FDE = 180° – 100 = 80° (b)

Question 20.
In the figure, if lines l and m are parallel, then x =
(a) 20°
(b) 45°
(c) 65°
(d) 85°

Solution:
In the figure, l || m

∴ ∠1 =65° (Corresponding angles)
In ∆BCD,
Ext. ∠1 = x + 20°
⇒ 65° = x + 20°
⇒ x = 65° – 20°
⇒ x = 45° (b)

Question 21.
In the figure, if AB || CD, then x =
(a) 100°
(b) 105°
(c) 110°
(d) 115°

Solution:
In the figure, AB || CD
Through P, draw PQ || AB or CD

∠A + ∠1 = 180° (Co-interior angles)
⇒ 132° + ∠1 = 180°
⇒ ∠1 = 180°- 132° = 48°
∴ ∠2 = 148° – ∠1 = 148° – 48° = 100°
∵ DQ || CP
∴ ∠2 = x (Corresponding angles)
∴ x = 100° (a)

Question 22.
In tlie figure, if lines l and in are parallel lines, then x =
(a) 70°
(b) 100°
(c) 40°
(d) 30°

Solution:
In the figure, l || m

∠l =70° (Corresponding angles)
In ∆DEF,
Ext. ∠l = x + 30°
⇒ 70° = x + 30°
⇒ x = 70° – 30° = 40° (c)

Question 23.
In the figure, if l || m, then x =
(a) 105°
(b) 65°
(c) 40°
(d) 25°

Solution:
In the figure,
l || m and n is the transversal

∠1 = 65° (Alternate angles)
In ∆GHF,
Ext. x = ∠1 + 40° = 65° + 40°
⇒ x = 105°
∴ x = 105° (a)

Question 24.
In the figure, if lines l and m are parallel, then the value of x is
(a) 35°
(b) 55°
(c) 65°
(d) 75°

Solution:
In the figure, l || m
and PQ is the transversal

∠1 = 90°
In ∆EFG,
Ext. ∠G = ∠E + ∠F
⇒ 125° = x + ∠1 = x + 90°
⇒ x = 125° – 90° = 35° (a)

Question 25.
Two complementary angles are such that two times the measure of one is equal to three times the measure of the other. The measure of the smaller angle is
(a) 45°
(b) 30°
(c) 36°
(d) none of these
Solution:
Let first angle = x
Then its complementary angle = 90° – x
∴ 2x = 3(90° – x)
⇒ 2x = 270° – 3x
⇒ 2x + 3x = 270°
⇒ 5x = 270°
⇒ x = $$\frac { { 270 }^{ \circ } }{ 5 }$$  = 54°
∴ second angle = 90° – 54° = 36°
∴ smaller angle = 36° (c)

Question 26.

Solution:

Question 27.
In the figure, AB || CD || EF and GH || KL.
The measure of ∠HKL is
(a) 85°
(b) 135°
(c) 145°
(d) 215°

Solution:
In the figure, AB || CD || EF and GH || KL and GH is product to meet AB in L.

∵ AB || CD
∴ ∠1 = 25° (Alternate angle)
and GH || KL
∴ ∠4 = 60° (Corresponding angles)
∠5 = ∠4 = 60° (Vertically opposite angle)
∠5 + ∠2 = 180° (Co-interior anlges)
∴ ⇒ 60° + ∠2 = 180°
∠2 = 180° – 60° = 120°
Now ∠HKL = ∠1 + ∠2 = 25° + 120°

Question 28.
AB and CD are two parallel lines. PQ cuts AB and CD at E and F respectively. EL is the bisector of ∠FEB. If ∠LEB = 35°, then ∠CFQ will be
(a) 55°
(b) 70°
(c) 110°
(d) 130°
Solution:
AB || CD and PQ is the transversal EL is the bisector of ∠FEB and ∠LEB = 35°

∴ ∠FEB = 2 x 35° = 70°
∵ AB || CD
∴ ∠FEB + ∠EFD = 180°
(Co-interior angles)
70° + ∠EFD = 180°
∴ ∠EFD = 180°-70°= 110°
But ∠CFQ = ∠EFD
(Vertically opposite angles)
∴ ∠CFQ =110° (c)

Question 29.
In the figure, if line segment AB is parallel to the line segment CD, what is the value of y?
(a) 12
(b) 15
(c) 18
(d) 20

Solution:
In the figure, AB || CD
BD is transversal
∴ ∠ABD + ∠BDC = 180° (Co-interior angles)
⇒y + 2y+y + 5y = 180°
⇒ 9y = 180° ⇒ y = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 9 }$$  = 20° (d)

Question 30.
In the figure, if CP || DQ, then the measure of x is
(a) 130°
(b) 105°
(c) 175°
(d) 125°

Solution:
In the figure, CP || DQ
BA is transversal
Produce PC to meet BA at D

∵ QB || PD
∴ ∠D = 105° (Corresponding angles)
