# Exercise 4.1: Lines and Triangles

Question 1: In the given figure, AB is a mirror. PQ is the incident ray and QR, the reflected ray. If

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle PQR=112^{\circ}\end{array}$$
, find
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle PQA\end{array}$$
.

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â

Ans:

We know that the angle of incidence = angle of reflection.

Hence, let

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle PQA = \angle BQR = x^{o}\end{array}$$

Since, AQB is a straight line, we have

therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l} \angle PQA + \angle PQR + \angle BQR = 180^{o}\end{array}$$

x + 112 + x = 180o

2x = 68

X = 34o

therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle PQA = 34^{o}\end{array}$$

Question 2: If two straight lines intersect each other than prove that ray opposite to the bisector of one of the angles so formed bisect the vertically opposite angles.

Ans:

Let AB and CD be the two lines intersecting at a point O and let ray OE bisect

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AOC\end{array}$$
. Now draw a ray OF in the opposite direction of OE, such that EOF is a straight line.

Let

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle COE = 1, \angle AOE = 2, \angle BOF = 3\ and\ \angle DOF = 4\end{array}$$

We know that vertically opposite angles are equal.

therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l} \angle 1 = \angle 4\ and\ \angle 2 = \angle 3\end{array}$$

But,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1 = \angle 2\end{array}$$
[Since OE bisects
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AOC\end{array}$$
]

therefore,Â

$$\begin{array}{l} \angle 4 = \angle 3\end{array}$$

Hence, the ray opposite the bisector of one of the angles so formed bisects the vertically-opposite angle.

Question 3: Prove that the bisector of two adjacent supplementary angles include a right angle.

Ans: Let AOB denote a straight line and let

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AOC\ and\ \angle BOC\end{array}$$
be the supplementary angles.

Thus, we have:

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AOC = x^{o}\end{array}$$
and
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle BOC = (180 -x)^{o}\end{array}$$

Let OE bisects

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AOC\end{array}$$
and OF bisect
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle BOC\end{array}$$

Then, we have:

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AOE = \angle COE = \frac{1}{2} x^{o}\end{array}$$
and

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle BOF = \angle FOC = \frac{1}{2}(180 – x)^{o}\end{array}$$

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle COE + \angle FOC = \frac{1}{2} x + \frac{1}{2} (180 – x)^{o}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l} = \frac{1}{2}(x + 180 – x)\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}= \frac{1}{2}(180^{o})\end{array}$$

= 90o

$$\begin{array}{l}AB\left | \right | CD\end{array}$$
are cut by a traversal t at E and F respectively. If L1 =
$$\begin{array}{l}70^{\circ}\end{array}$$
, find the measure of each of the remaining marked angles.

Ans.

We have,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$
. Then,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1=\angle 5\end{array}$$
[Corresponding angle ]

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 5=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1=\angle 3\end{array}$$
[Vertically-opposite angles]

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 3=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 5=\angle 7\end{array}$$
[Vertically-opposite angles]

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 7=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1+\angle 2=180^{\circ}\end{array}$$
[Since AFB is a straight line ]

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}70^{\circ}+\angle 2=180^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 2=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$
[Vertically-opposite angles]

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 4=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 2=\angle 6\end{array}$$
[Corresponding angles]

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 6=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 6=\angle 8\end{array}$$
[Vertically-opposite angles]

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 8=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$
,
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 2=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$
,
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 3=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$
,
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 4=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$

,
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 7=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$
and
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 8=110^{\circ}\end{array}$$
.

$$\begin{array}{l}AB\left | \right | CD\end{array}$$
are cut by a transversal t at E and F respectively. If L2:L1 = 5:4 , find the measure of each one of the marked angles.

Given

$$\begin{array}{l}AB\left | \right | CD\end{array}$$
and a line t intersects them at E and F forming angles

L1 + L2 + L3 + L4 + L5 + L6 + L7 + L8

Ans.

Given, L2:L1 = 5:4

Let L2 = 5y and L1 = 4y

But L2 + L1 =

$$\begin{array}{l}180^{\circ}\end{array}$$
[Linear pair]

Ã  5y + 4y =

$$\begin{array}{l}180^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Ã  Y =

$$\begin{array}{l}\frac{180^{\circ}}{9}=20^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Therefore, L2 = 5y = 5 x

$$\begin{array}{l}20^{\circ}\end{array}$$
=
$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$

And L1 = 4y = 4 x

$$\begin{array}{l}20^{\circ}\end{array}$$
=
$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$

But L1 = L3 [vertically opp. Angles]

Therefore, L3 =

$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Similarly, Since L2 = L4 [vertically opp. Angles]

Therefore, L4 =

$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Since, L1 = L5 [corresponding angles]

Therefore, L5 =

$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Since, L4 = L6 [Alternate angles]

Therefore, L6 =

$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Since, L3 = L7 [Corresponding angles]

Therefore, L7 =

$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Since, L4 = L8 [Corresponding angles]

Therefore, L8 =

$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Hence, L3 =

$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$
,L4 =
$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$
, L5 =
$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$
, L6 =
$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$
, L7 =
$$\begin{array}{l}80^{\circ}\end{array}$$
, L8 =
$$\begin{array}{l}100^{\circ}\end{array}$$
.

and
$$\begin{array}{l}AD\left | \right |BC\end{array}$$
.Prove that
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle ADC=\angle ABC\end{array}$$

Ans.

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle ADC+\angle DCB=180^{\circ}\end{array}$$
Â  â€¦(i) [Consecutive Interior angles]

Also,

and BC is the transversal. Then,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle DCB+\angle ABC=180^{\circ}\end{array}$$
Â Â  â€¦(ii) [Consecutive Interior angles]

From (i) and (ii), we get:

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle ADC+\angle DCB=\angle DCB+\angle ABC\end{array}$$

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle ADC=\angle ABC\end{array}$$

Again,

$$\begin{array}{l}EF\parallel CD\end{array}$$
and DE is the transversal.

Then,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle DEF=\angle FED\end{array}$$

Ã

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle EOB+55^{\circ}=180^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle EOB=155^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}x^{\circ}=\angle EOB+\angle EOD\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}(125+155)^{\circ}\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}280^{\circ}\end{array}$$

[Consecutive interior angles]

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle AEF+116=180\end{array}$$

[Consecutive Interior angles]

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle CEF+124=180\end{array}$$

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle CEF=56^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l}x^{\circ}=\angle AEF+\angle CEF\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}(64+56)^{\circ}\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}120^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}z=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle DSH=z\end{array}$$
[Corresponding Angles]

Ã

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle DSH=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

therefore,Â

$$\begin{array}{l} \angle DSH=t\end{array}$$
[Vertically-opposite Angles]

Ã  t =

$$\begin{array}{l}70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l};x=60^{\circ},z=70^{\circ}\;and\;t=70^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Q19) For what value of x will the lines l and m be parallel to each other?

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â

Ans.

For the lines l and m to be parallel

(i)

$$\begin{array}{l}\Leftrightarrow\end{array}$$
3x â€“ 20 = 2x +10 Â [Corresponding angles]

$$\begin{array}{l}\Leftrightarrow\end{array}$$
x = 30

(ii)

$$\begin{array}{l}\Leftrightarrow\end{array}$$
3x + 5 + 4x = 180 [Consecutive Interior Angles]

$$\begin{array}{l}\Leftrightarrow\end{array}$$
7x = 175

$$\begin{array}{l}\Leftrightarrow\end{array}$$
x = 25

Q20) If two straight lines are perpendicular to the same line, prove that the lines are parallel to each other.

Ans:

Given: Two lines m and n are perpendicular to a given line l.

To Prove :

$$\begin{array}{l}m\parallel n\end{array}$$

Proof : Since

$$\begin{array}{l}m\perp l\end{array}$$

So,

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1=90^{\circ}\end{array}$$

Again, Since

$$\begin{array}{l}n\perp l\end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 2=90^{\circ}\end{array}$$

therefore,

$$\begin{array}{l} \angle 1=\angle 2=90^{\circ}\end{array}$$

But

$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 1\end{array}$$
and
$$\begin{array}{l}\angle 2\end{array}$$
are the corresponding angles made by the transversal l with lines m and n and they are proved to be equal.

Thus,

$$\begin{array}{l}m\parallel n\end{array}$$
