2. Find the sum of interior angles of a polygon with:

(i) 9 sides

(ii) 13 sides

(iii) 16 sides

Solution:

(i) 9 sides

Number of sides n = 9

The Sum of interior angles of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= (2 Ã— 9 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= (18 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= 14 Ã— 900

We get,

= 12600

(ii) 13 sides

Number of sides n = 13

The sum of interior angles of polygon = (2n -4) Ã— 900

= (2 Ã— 13 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= (26 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= 22 Ã— 900

We get,

= 19800

(iii) 16 sides

Number of sides n = 16

The sum of interior angles of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= (2 Ã— 16 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= (32 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= 28 Ã— 900

We get,

= 25200

3. Find the number of sides of a polygon, if the sum of its interior angles is:

(i) 14400

(ii) 16200

Solution:

(i) 14400

The sum of interior angles of polygon = 14400

Let the number of sides = n

The sum of interior angle of polygon is (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The side of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 14400

2n â€“ 4 = 14400 / 900

2(n â€“ 2) = 14400 / 900

n â€“ 2 = 14400 / (2 Ã— 900)

On further calculation, we get

n â€“ 2 = 160 / 2

We get,

n â€“ 2 = 8

n = 8 + 2

n = 10

Hence, the side of polygon = 10

(ii) 16200

Given

The sum of interior angles of polygon = 16200

Let number of sides = n

The sum of interior angles of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The side of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 16200

2(n â€“ 2) Ã— 900 = 16200

n â€“ 2 = 16200 / (2 Ã— 900)

n â€“ 2 = 8100 / 900

We get,

n â€“ 2 = 9

n = 9 + 2

n = 11

Hence, the side of polygon = 11

4. Is it possible to have a polygon, whose sum of interior angles is 10300.

Solution:

Given

The sum of interior angles of polygon = 10300

Let us consider the number of sides = n

The sum of interior angle of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The side of polygon is calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 10300

2(n â€“ 2)= 10300 / 900

On further calculation, we get

(n â€“ 2) = 10300 / (2 Ã— 900)

(n â€“ 2) = 1030 / 180

n = 5.72 + 2

n = 7.72

which is not a whole number.

Therefore, it is not a polygon, whose sum of interior angles is 10300

5. (i) If all the angles of a hexagon arc equal, find the measure of each angle.

(ii) If all the angles of an octagon are equal, find the measure of each angle.

Solution:

(i) Number of sides of polygon n = 6

Let us consider each angle be = x0

We know,

The sum of interior angles of hexagon = 6x0

The sum of interior angle of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The sum of the interior angles of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = Sum of angles

(2 Ã— 6 â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 6x0

(12 â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 6x0

6x0 = 8 Ã— 900

x0 = (8 Ã— 900) / 6

We get,

x = 1200

Therefore, each angle of hexagon = 1200

(ii) Number of sides of octagon n = 8

Let us consider each angle be = x0

We know that,

The sum of interior angles of octagon = 8x0

The sum of interior angles of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The sum of interior angles of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = Sum of angles

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 8x0

(2 Ã— 8 â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 8x0

12 Ã— 900 = 8x0

8x0 = 12 Ã— 900

x0 = (12 Ã— 900) / 8

We get,

x0 = 1350

Therefore, each angle of octagon = 1350

6. One angle of a quadrilateral is 900 and all other angles are equal; find each equal angle

Solution:

Let us consider all the three equal angle of a quadrilateral be x0

The sum of angles of a quadrilateral = 3600

x + x + x + 900 = 3600

3x + 900 = 3600

3x = 3600 â€“ 900

3x = 2700

x = 2700 / 3

We get,

x = 900

The measure of each equal angle = 900

7. If angles of quadrilateral are in the ratio 4: 5: 3: 6; find each angle of the quadrilateral.

Solution:

Let us consider the angles of quadrilateral be 4x, 5x, 3x and 6x

We know,

The sum of angles of quadrilateral = 3600

4x + 5x + 3x + 6x = 3600

18x = 3600

x = 3600 / 18

We get,

x = 200

Now, all the angles are,

4x = 4 Ã— 200

= 800

5x = 5 Ã— 200

= 1000

3x = 3 Ã— 200

= 600

6x = 6 Ã— 200

= 1200

Therefore, the angles of the quadrilateral are 800, 1000, 600 and 1200

8. If one angle of a pentagon is 1200 and each of the remaining four angles is x0, find the magnitude of x.

Solution:

Given

One angle of a pentagon = 1200

Number of sides of pentagon n = 5

Let us consider all other equal angle of pentagon be x

The sum of interior angle of polygon is (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The sum of the interior angle of pentagon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = (2 Ã— 5 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= 6 Ã— 900

We get,

= 5400

Therefore, the sum of interior angles of pentagon is 5400

Now,

x + x + x + x + 1200 = 5400

4x + 1200 = 5400

4x = 5400 – 1200

4x = 4200

x = 4200 / 4

We get,

x = 1050

Hence, the value of x = 1050

9. The angles of a pentagon are in the ratio 5: 4: 5: 7: 6; find each angle of the pentagon.

Solution:

Let us consider all the angle of pentagon as 5x, 4x, 5x, 7x and 6x

The sum of the interior angle of polygon is (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The sum of the interior angle of pentagon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = (2 Ã— 5 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= 6 Ã— 900

We get,

= 5400

The sum of interior angles of pentagon = 5400

Hence,

5x + 4x + 5x + 7x + 6x = 5400

27x = 5400

x = 5400 / 27

We get,

x = 200

Thus, each angle,

5x = 5 Ã— 200

= 1000

4x = 4 Ã— 200

= 800

5x = 5 Ã— 200

= 1000

7x = 7 Ã— 200

= 1400

6x = 6 Ã— 200

= 1200

Therefore, all the angles of a pentagon are 1000, 800, 1000, 1400 and 1200

10. Two angles of a hexagon are 900 and 1100. If the remaining four angles arc equal, find each equal angle.

Solution:

Let us consider all the angle of hexagon as x

Number of sides in hexagon n = 6

The sum of interior angle of polygon is (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

The sum of interior angle of hexagon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = (2 Ã— 6 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= (12 â€“ 4) Ã— 900

= 8 Ã— 900

We get,

= 7200

The sum of interior angles of pentagon is 7200

Hence,

900 + 1100 + x + x + x + x = 7200

2000 + 4x = 7200

4x = 7200 – 2000

4x = 5200

We get,

x = 1300

Hence, the measure of each equal angle = 1300

Solution:

 Number of sides Each exterior angle Each interior angle (i) 6 600 1200 (ii) 8 450 1350 (iii) 10 360 1440 (iv) 18 200 1600 (v) 8 450 1350 (vi) 24 150 1650

(i) Each exterior angle = 3600 / 6

= 600

Each interior angle = 1800 – 600

= 1200

(ii) Each exterior angle = 3600 / 8

= 450

Each interior angle = 1800 – 450

= 1350

(iii) Given that, each exterior angle = 360

So, number of sides = 3600 / 360

= 10 sides

Each interior angle = 1800 â€“ 360

= 1440

(iv) Given that, each exterior angle = 200

Hence, number of sides = 3600 / 200

= 18 sides

Each interior angle = 1800 – 200

= 1600

(v) Given that, each interior angle = 1350

Hence, exterior angle = 1800 – 1350

= 450

Therefore, number of sides = 3600 / 450

= 8 sides

(vi) Given that, each interior angle = 1650

Hence, exterior angle = 1800 – 1650

= 150

Therefore, the number of sides = 3600 / 150

= 24 sides

2. Find the number of sides in a regular polygon, if its each interior angle is:

(i) 1600

(ii) 1500

Solution:

(i) 1600

Let the number of sides of a regular polygon = n

Each interior angle = 600

The sum of interior angle of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 1600 Ã— n

1800n â€“ 3600 = 1600n

1800n â€“ 1600n = 3600

200n = 3600

n = 3600 / 200

We get,

n = 18

Hence, the number of sides = 18

(ii) 1500

Let us consider the number of sides of regular polygon be n

The sum of the interior angle of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

Each interior angle = 1500

The sum of the interior angle of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 1500 Ã— n

1800n â€“ 3600 = 1500n

1800n â€“ 1500n = 3600

300n = 3600

n = 3600 / 300

We get,

n = 12

Hence, the number of sides = 12

3. Find number of sides in a regular polygon, if its each exterior angle is:

(i) 300

(ii) 360

Solution:

(i) 300

Let us assume the number of sides be n

Each exterior angle = 300

Each exterior angle of polygon = 3600 / n

Now, we have

3600 / n = 300

n = 3600 / 300

We get,

n = 12

Hence, the number of sides = 12

(ii) 360

Let us assume the number of sides be n

Each exterior angle = 360

Each exterior angle of polygon = 3600 / n

Now, we have

3600 / n = 360

n = 3600 / 360

We get,

n = 10

Hence, the number of sides = 10

4. Is it possible to have a regular polygon whose each interior angle is:

(i) 1350

(ii) 1550

Solution:

(i) 1350

Let the number of sides of regular polygon be n

The sum of the interior angle of polygon = (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

Each interior angle = 1350

The sum of interior angle of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 1350 Ã— n

1800n â€“ 3600 = 1350n

1800n â€“ 1350n = 3600

450n = 3600

n = 3600 / 450

We get,

n = 8

Since, it is a whole number

Therefore, it is possible to have a regular polygon whose interior angle is 1350

(ii) 1550

Let the number of sides of a regular polygon is n

The sum of the interior angle of polygon is (2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900

Each interior angle = 1550

The sum of the interior angle of polygon can be calculated as,

(2n â€“ 4) Ã— 900 = 1550 Ã— n

1800n â€“ 3600 = 1550n

1800n â€“ 1550n = 3600

250n = 3600

n = 3600 / 250

We get,

n = 72 / 5

Since, it is not a whole number

Therefore, it is not possible to form a regular polygon whose interior angle is 1550

5. Is it possible to have a regular polygon whose each exterior angle is:

(i) 1000

(ii) 360

Solution:

(i) 1000

Let the number of sides be n

Each exterior angle = 1000

Each exterior angle of a polygon is calculated as,

3600 / n

So,

3600 / n = 1000

n = 3600 / 1000

We get,

n = 18 / 5

Since, it is not a whole number

Therefore, it is not possible to form a regular polygon

(ii) 360

Let us consider the number of sides be n

Each exterior angle = 360

Each exterior angle of polygon = 3600 / n

So,

3600 / n = 360

n = 3600 / 360

We get,

n = 10

Since, it is a whole number

Therefore, it is possible to form a regular polygon

6. The ratio between the interior angle and the exterior angle of a regular polygon is 2: 1. Find:

(i) each exterior angle of this polygon.

(ii) number of sides in the polygon.

Solution:

(i) Given

Interior angle: exterior angle = 2: 1

Let us assume the interior angle = 2x0 and the exterior angle = x0

The sum of the interior angle and exterior angle is 1800

Hence,

2x0 + x0 = 1800

3x = 1800

x = 1800 / 3

We get,

x = 600

Therefore, each exterior angle = 600

(ii) Let us assume the number of sides be n

Each exterior angle = 600

Each exterior angle of polygon = 3600 / n

So,

360 / n = 600

n = 3600 / 600

We get,

n = 6

Hence, the number of sides = 6
