**4. If diagonal of a rectangle is 26 cm and one side is 24 cm, find the other side.**

**Solution:**

Let ABCD be the rectangle.

l(BC) = 24cm, l(AC) = 26cm

In âˆ†ABC,

mâˆ ABC = 90Â° [Angle of a rectangle]

By using Pythagoras theorem,

[l(AC)]Â² = [l(AB)]2 + [l(BC)]Â²(26 )Â² = [l(AB)]Â² + (24)Â²

(26)Â² â€“ (24)Â² = [l(AB)]Â²

(26 + 24) (26 â€“ 24) = [l(AB)]Â² [Since, aÂ² â€“ bÂ² = (a + b) (a â€“ b)]

50 x 2 = [l(AB)]Â²

100 = [l(AB)]Â²

l(AB) = âˆš100

By taking square root of both sides, we get

l(AB) =10 cm

âˆ´The length of the other side is 10 cm.

**5. Lengths of diagonals of a rhombus ABCD are 16 cm and 12 cm. Find the side and perimeter of the rhombus.**

**Solution:**

In rhombus ABCD,

It is given that, l(AC) = 16 cm and l(BD) = 12 cm.

Let the diagonals of rhombus ABCD intersect at point O.

l(AO) =Â 12Â l(AC) [Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other]

l(AO) =Â 12Â Ã— 16

= 8 cm

Also, l(DO) =Â 12Â l(BD) [Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other]

l(DO) =Â 12Â Ã— 12

l(DO) = 6 cm

In âˆ†DOA,

mâˆ DOA = 90Â° [Diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular to each other]

By using Pythagoras theorem,

[l(AD)]Â² = [l(AO)]Â² + [l(DO)]Â²= (8)Â² + (6)Â²

= 64 + 36

[l(AD)]Â² = 100l(AD) = âˆš100

By taking square root on both sides, we get

l(AD) = 10 cm

l(AB) = l(BC) = l(CD) = l(AD) = 10 cm [Since, sides of a rhombus are congruent]

Perimeter of rhombus ABCD

= l(AB) + l(BC) + l(CD) + l(AD)

= 10+10+10+10

= 40 cm

âˆ´The side and perimeter of the rhombus are 10 cm and 40 cm respectively.

**6. Find the length of diagonal of a square with side 8 cm.**

**Solution:**

Let XYWZ be the square of side 8cm.

seg XW is a diagonal.

In âˆ† XYW,

mâˆ XYW = 90Â° [Angle of a square]

By using Pythagoras theorem,

[l(XW)]Â² = [l(XY)]Â² + [l(YW)]Â²= (8)Â² + (8)Â²

= 64 + 64

[l(XW)]Â² = 128By taking square root on both sides, we get

l(XW) = âˆš128

= âˆš64 Ã— 2

= 8 âˆš2 cm

âˆ´ The length of the diagonal of the square is 8 âˆš2 cm.

**7. Measure of one angle of a rhombus is 50Â°, find the measures of remaining three angles.**

**Solution:**

Let ABCD be the rhombus.

mâˆ A = 50Â°

mâˆ C = mâˆ A [Since, opposite angles of a rhombus are congruent]

âˆ´ mâˆ C = 50Â°

Also, mâˆ D = mâˆ B â€¦(i) [Opposite angles of a rhombus are congruent]

In rhombus ABCD, we know that sum of the measures of the angles of a quadrilateral is 360Â°.

mâˆ A + mâˆ B + mâˆ C + mâˆ D = 360Â°

50Â° + mâˆ B + 50Â° + mâˆ D = 360Â°

mâˆ B + mâˆ D + 100Â° = 360Â°

mâˆ B + mâˆ D = 360Â° â€“ 100Â°

mâˆ B + mâˆ B = 260Â° [From (i)]

2mâˆ B = 260Â°

mâˆ B =Â 260/2

mâˆ B = 130Â°

mâˆ D = mâˆ B = 130Â° [From (i)]

âˆ´ The measures of the remaining angles of the rhombus are 130Â°, 50Â° and 130Â°.

Practice set 8.3 PAGE NO: 49

**1. Measures of opposite angles of a parallelogram are (3x â€“ 2)Â° and (50 â€“ x)Â°. Find the measure of its each angle.**

**Solution:**

Let PQRS be the parallelogram.

mâˆ Q = (3x â€“ 2)Â° and mâˆ S = (50 â€“ x)Â°

mâˆ Q = mâˆ S â€¦..(i) [Since, opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent]

3x â€“ 2 = 50 â€“ x

3x + x = 50 + 2

4x = 52

x =Â 52/4

x = 13

Now, mâˆ Q = (3x â€“ 2)Â°

(3 Ã— 13 â€“ 2)Â° = (39 â€“ 2)Â° = 37Â°

mâˆ S = mâˆ Q = 37Â° [From(i)]

mâˆ P + mâˆ Q = 180Â° [Since, adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary]

mâˆ P + 37Â° = 180Â°

mâˆ P = 180Â° â€“ 37Â° = 143Â°

mâˆ R = mâˆ P = 143Â° [Since, opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent]

âˆ´ The measures of the angles of the parallelogram are 37Â°, 143Â°, 37Â° and 143Â°.

**2. Referring the given figure of a parallelogram, write the answers of questions given below.
(1) If l(WZ) = 4.5 cm, then l(XY) = ?
(2) If l(YZ) = 8.2 cm, then l(XW) = ?
(3) If l(OX) = 2.5 cm, then l(OZ) = ?
(4) If l(WO) = 3.3 cm, then l(WY) = ?
(5) If mâˆ WZY = 120Â°, then mâˆ WXY = ? and mâˆ XWZ = ?**

**Solution:**

**(1)** It is given that, l(WZ) = 4.5 cm

l(X Y) = l(WZ) [Since, opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent ]

âˆ´ l(X Y) = 4.5cm

**(2)** It is given that, l(YZ) = 8.2 cm

l(XW) = l(YZ) [Since, opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent]

âˆ´ l(XW) = 8.2cm

**(3)** It is given that, l(OX) = 2.5 cm

l(OZ) = l(OX) [Since, diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other]

âˆ´ l(OZ) = 2.5cm

**(4)** It is given that, l(WO) = 3.3 cm

l(WO) =Â 1/2Â l(WY) [Since, diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other]

3.3 =Â 1/2Â l(WY)

3.3 Ã— 2 = l(WY)

âˆ´ l(WY) = 6.6cm

**(5)** It is given that, mâˆ WZY =120Â°

mâˆ WXY = mâˆ WZY [Since, opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent]

So, mâˆ WXY = 120^{o}

Now,

mâˆ XWZ + mâˆ WXY = 180Â° [Since, adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary]

mâˆ XWZ + 120Â° = 180Â°

mâˆ XWZ = 180Â°- 120Â°

âˆ´ mâˆ XWZ = 60Â°

**3. Construct a parallelogram ABCD such that l(BC) = 7 cm, mâˆ ABC = 40Â°, l(AB) = 3 cm.**

**Solution:**

Steps to construct:

Step 1: Draw a line AB = 3cm.

Step 2: Construct an angle of 40^{o} at point B.

Step 3: With B as centre and radius 7cm, draw an arc cutting the line BX at point C.

Step 4: With C as centre and radius 3cm, draw an arc.

Step 5: With A as the centre and radius 7cm, draw an arc cutting the previous arc at point D.

Step 6: Join AD and CD.

Opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent.

âˆ´ l(AB) = l(CD) = 3cm

l(BC) = l(AD) = 7 cm

**4. Ratio of consecutive angles of a quadrilateral is 1: 2: 3: 4. Find the measure of its each angle. Write with reason, what type of a quadrilateral it is.**

**Solution:**

Let PQRS be the quadrilateral.

Ratio of consecutive angles of a quadrilateral is 1: 2: 3: 4.

Let us consider â€˜xâ€™ be the common multiple.

âˆ´mâˆ P = xÂ°, mâˆ Q = 2xÂ°, mâˆ R = 3xÂ° and mâˆ S = 4xÂ°

In quadrilateral PQRS,

mâˆ P + mâˆ Q + mâˆ R + mâˆ S = 360Â° [Sum of the measures of the angles of a quadrilateral is 360Â°]

xÂ° + 2xÂ° + 3xÂ° + 4xÂ° = 360Â°

10 xÂ° = 360Â°

xÂ° =Â 360/10

xÂ° = 36Â°

âˆ´mâˆ P = xÂ° = 36Â°

mâˆ Q = 2xÂ° = 2 Ã— 36Â° = 72Â°

mâˆ R = 3xÂ° = 3 Ã— 36Â° = 108Â° and

mâˆ S = 4xÂ° = 4 Ã— 36Â° = 144Â°

âˆ´The measures of the angles of the quadrilateral are 36Â°, 72Â°, 108Â°, 144Â°.

Here, mâˆ P + mâˆ S = 36Â° + 144Â° = 180Â°

side PQ || side SR [Since, interior angles are supplementary]

mâˆ P + mâˆ Q = 36Â° + 72Â°

= 108Â°

â‰ 180Â°

So, side PS is not parallel to side QR.

Since, one pair of opposite sides of the given quadrilateral is parallel.

âˆ´The given quadrilateral is a trapezium.

**5. Construct BARC such that l(BA) = l(BC) = 4.2 cm, l(AC) = 6.0 cm, l(AR) = l(CR) = 5.6 cm.**

Step 5: With A as the centre and radius 5.6cm, draw an arc.

Step 6: With C as the centre and radius 5.6cm, draw an arc cutting the previous ac at D.

Step 7: Join AD, CD and BC.

**6. Construct PQRS, such that l(PQ) = 3.5 cm, l(QR) = 5.6 cm, l(RS) = 3.5 cm, mâˆ Q = 110Â°, mâˆ R = 70Â°. **

**If it is given that PQRS is a parallelogram, which of the given information is unnecessary?**

**Solution:**

Steps to construct:

Step 1: Draw a line PQ = 3.5cm.

Step 2: Construct an angle of 110^{o} at point Q.

Step 3: With Q as centre and radius 5.6cm, draw an arc cutting the line QX at point R.

Step 4: Construct an angle of 70^{o} at point R.

Step 5: With R as the centre and radius 3.5cm, draw an arc cutting the Line RY at point S.

Step 6: Join RS and PS.

- Since, the opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent.Either l(PQ) or l(SR) is required.
- To construct a parallelogram, length of adjacent sides and measure of one angle is required.Either l(PQ) and mâˆ Q or l(SR) and mâˆ R is the unnecessary information given in the question.
