Practice set 2.1 PAGE NO: 08

**1. In the adjoining figure, each angle is shown by a letter. Fill in the boxes with the help of the figure.**

**Solution:**

From the above given figure we can say that,

For corresponding angles:

**(1)** ForÂ âˆ p

âˆ w is the angle which is on the same side and same direction of transversal.

Hence,Â âˆ wÂ is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ p.

**(2)** ForÂ âˆ q

âˆ x is the angle which is on the same side and same direction of transversal.

Hence,Â âˆ xÂ is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ q.

**(3)** ForÂ âˆ r

âˆ y is the angle which is on the same side and same direction of transversal.

Hence, âˆ r is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ y.

**(4)** ForÂ âˆ s

âˆ z is the angle which is on the same side and same direction of transversal.

Hence,Â âˆ s is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ z.

For Interior alternate angles:

**(5)** ForÂ âˆ s

The angel which is in the inner side as well as on the opposite side of transversal and its opposite angle isÂ âˆ x.

Hence,Â âˆ s andÂ âˆ x form pair of Interior Alternate angel.

**(6)** ForÂ âˆ w

The angel which is in the inner side as well as on the opposite side of transversal and its opposite angle isÂ âˆ r.

Hence,Â âˆ w andÂ âˆ r form pair of Interior Alternate angel.

**2.** **Observe the angles shown in the figure and write the following pair of angles.**

**(1) Interior alternate angles
(2) Corresponding angles
(3) Interior angles**

**Solution:**

**(1)** For Interior alternate angles:

When these angels are in the inner side they are called Interior alternateÂ angels.

- ForÂ âˆ b, âˆ b andÂ âˆ h form pair of Interior Alternate angel.
- ForÂ âˆ c, âˆ cÂ andÂ âˆ e form pair of Interior Alternate angel.

**(2)** For Corresponding angles

If the arms on the transversal of a pair of angles are in the same direction and the other arms are on the same side of the transversal, then it is called a pair of corresponding angles.

- ForÂ âˆ a, âˆ a is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ e.
- ForÂ âˆ b, âˆ bÂ is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ f.
- ForÂ âˆ d,Â âˆ d is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ h.
- ForÂ âˆ c, âˆ c is the corresponding angle toÂ âˆ g.

**(3)** Interior angles

A pair of angles which are on the same side of the transversal and inside the given lines is called a pair of interior angles.

- For âˆ b, âˆ b andÂ âˆ e form pair of interior angels.
- For âˆ c, âˆ cÂ andÂ âˆ h form pair of interior angels.

**1.** **Choose the correct alternative.**

(1) In the adjoining figure, if lineÂ mÂ || lineÂ nÂ and lineÂ pÂ is a transversal then findÂ x.

**A. 135Â°
B. 90Â°
C. 45Â°
D. 40Â°**

**Solution:**

From the given figure we have 3x and x. 3x and x form a pair of interior angle.

By using the property of interior angels. [We know that, each pair of interior angles formed by two parallel lines and their transversal is of supplementary angles i.e. 180Â°.]

x + 3x = 180

4x = 180

x = 180/4

= 45^{o}

âˆ´Â The value of x is 45Â°.

**(2)** **In the adjoining figure, if lineÂ aÂ || lineÂ bÂ and lineÂ lÂ is a transversal then findÂ x.**

**A. 90Â°
B. 60Â°
C. 45Â°
D. 30Â°**

**Solution:**

From the figure we have 4x and 2x. 4x and 2x form a pair of interior angle.

By using the property of interior angels

4x + 2x = 180Â°

6x = 180Â°

x = 180/6

= 30^{o}

âˆ´Â The value of x is 30^{o}.

**2. In the adjoining figure lineÂ pÂ || lineÂ q. LineÂ tÂ and lineÂ sÂ are transversals. Find the measure ofÂ âˆ x andÂ âˆ y using the measures of angles given in the figure.**

**Solution:**

Given:

LineÂ pÂ || lineÂ q, lineÂ tÂ and lineÂ sÂ are transversals.

Let us find the measure ofÂ âˆ x andÂ âˆ y.

Firstly, Let us consider âˆ z as shown in figure.

Measure of âˆ z = 40Â° â€¦ (i) [Since, they are corresponding angles]

So,

mâˆ x + mâˆ z = 180Â° [Since, angles are in a linear pair]

mâˆ x + 40^{o} = 180Â° [From equation (i)]

mâˆ x= 180Â° â€“ 40Â°

mâˆ x = 140Â°

Now, let us consider âˆ w as shown in the figure.

mâˆ w + 70Â° = 180Â° [Since, angles are in a linear pair]

mâˆ w = 180Â° â€“ 70Â°

mâˆ w = 110Â° â€¦(ii)

It is given that, line p || line q and line s is a transversal.

So, mâˆ y = mâˆ w [by using alternate angles]

mâˆ y =110Â° [From equation (ii)]

âˆ´ The measure of âˆ x is 140Â° and âˆ y is 110Â°.

**3. In the adjoining figure. lineÂ pÂ || lineÂ q. lineÂ lÂ || lineÂ m. Find measures ofÂ âˆ a,Â âˆ b, andÂ âˆ c, using the measures of given angles. Justify your answers.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Line p || line q and line l are transversal.

Line l || line m and line p is a transversal.

Line p || line q and line m is a transversal.

Firstly let us find the measure of âˆ a

Line p || line q and line l are transversal.

So,

mâˆ a + 80Â° = 180Â° [Since, they are interior angles]

mâˆ a= 180Â° â€“ 80Â°

mâˆ a= 100Â°

Now, line l || line m and line p is a transversal.

So, mâˆ c = 80Â° â€¦ (i) [By using exterior alternate angles]

Line p || line q and line m is a transversal.

So, mâˆ b = mâˆ c â€¦ [Since, they are corresponding angles]

mâˆ b = 80Â° â€¦ [From equation (i)]

âˆ´ The measure of âˆ a is 100Â°, mâˆ b is 80Â°, mâˆ c is 80Â°.

**4. In the adjoining figure, lineÂ aÂ || lineÂ b. lineÂ lÂ is a transversal. Find the measures ofÂ âˆ x,Â âˆ y,Â âˆ zÂ using the given information.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Line a || line b and line l is a transversal.

So,

mâˆ x = 105Â° â€¦ (i) [Since, it is a corresponding angle]

Now,

mâˆ y = mâˆ x [Since, they are vertically opposite angles]

So, mâˆ y = 105Â° â€¦[From equation (i)]

Now, mâˆ z + 105Â° = 180Â° [Since, angles are in a linear pair]

mâˆ z = 180Â°- 105Â°

mâˆ z = 75Â°

âˆ´ The measure of âˆ x is 105Â°, mâˆ y is 105Â°, mâˆ z is 75Â°.

**5. In the adjoining figure, lineÂ pÂ || lineÂ lÂ || lineÂ q. FindÂ âˆ x with the help of the measures given in the figure.**

**Solution:**

Let us mark few points as such,

It is given that,

Line p || line l and line IJ is a transversal.

So,

mâˆ IJN = mâˆ JIH [Since they are alternate angles]

mâˆ IJN = 40Â° â€¦ (i)

Now,

Line l || line q and line MJ is a transversal.

So, mâˆ MJN = mâˆ JMK [Since they are alternate angles]

mâˆ MJN = 30Â° â€¦ (ii)

Now, mâˆ x = mâˆ IJN + mâˆ MJN [By using angle addition property]

We get,

40Â° + 30Â° [From equation (i) and (ii)]

mâˆ x = 70Â°

âˆ´ The measure of âˆ x is 70^{o}.

The lines in the same plane, which do not intersect each other are called parallel lines. If a line intersects two lines in two distinct points, then that line is called transversal of those two lines.
