In AP Board class 9 Maths Chapter 8 students will mostly learn about convex quadrilaterals. The will study the definition of a quadrilateral, know the different types and understand the properties of quadrilaterals. Some of the important topics included in this chapter are;

- Properties and Diagonals of Parallelogram
- The Mid-point Theorem

## What Is A Quadrilateral?

A quadrilateral is a simple closed figure bounded by four lines in a plane or it is any 4-sided polygon. It is also known by other names like Quadrangle or Tetragon. There are several types of or quadrilateral shapes namely;

- Square
- Rectangle
- Parallelogram
- Trapezoid
- Rhombus
- Kite

### Properties of A Convex Quadrilateral

Some of the properties of quadrilaterals include;

- All interior angles are less than 180° or they add to 360°.
- The two diagonals both lie inside the quadrilateral.
- It has four sides or edges.
- It has four vertices or corners.

### Mid-point Theorem Of Triangle And Converse

**Theorem 1:** The midpoints of two sides of a triangle which is joined by a line segment joining is parallel to the third side and also half of it.

**Theorem 2:** The line passing through the midpoint of one of the sides of a triangle which is also parallel to another side will bisect the third side.

Students can go through some of the chapter questions along with their solutions given below and know more about the concepts.

**Question 1:** The angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio 2:4:8:10. Find the angles.

Solution: Let the angles of the quadrilateral be 2n, 4n, 8n and 10n.

âˆµ Sum of all the angles of a quadrilateral = 360^{o}

∴ 2n + 4n + 8n + 10n = 360^{o}

= 20n = 360^{o}

We get \(x=\frac{360}{24}\)

= 15^{o}

∴ 2n = 2 × 15^{o} = 30^{o}

4n = 4 × 15^{o}= 60^{o}

8n = 8 × 15^{o} = 120^{o}

10n = 10 × 15^{o} = 150^{o}
