(ii) PHG = RHD = 95˚ [RHD and PHG are vertically opposite angles]

(iii)HGS = 180-95 = 85˚ [PHG and HGS are corresponding interior angles]

(iv)MGK = HGS = 85˚ [Vertically opposite angles]

**Solution:**

Given line p line q.

*l and m *are transversals.

a = 180-110 = 70˚ [Linear pair]

p and 110˚ are corresponding interior angles.

p = 180-110 = 70˚

b = p = 70˚ [Vertically opposite angles]

line pline q

m is the transversal.

c = 115˚ [Corresponding angles]

d+115 = 180˚ [Linear pair]

d = 180-115 = 65˚

Hence measure of a, b, c and d are 70˚, 70˚, 115˚ and 65˚ respectively.

**3. In figure 2.7, line l || line m and line n || line p. Find a, b, c from the given measure of an angle.**

**Solution:**

From figure , d and 45˚ form a linear pair.

d = 180-45 = 135˚

a = d = 135˚ [ d and a are alternate interior angles]

b = a = 135˚ [ a and b are Vertically opposite angles]

c = a = 135˚ [c and a are alternate interior angles]

**4* . In figure 2.8, sides of PQR and XYZ are parallel to each other. Prove that, PQR XYZ**

**Solution:**

Hence proved.

**5. In figure 2.9, line AB || line CD and line PQ is transversal. Measure of one of the angles is given. Hence find the measures of the following angles.**

**(i) ART **

**(ii) CTQ **

**(iii) DTQ **

**(iv) PRB**

**Solution:**

Given line AB line CD.

PQ is the transversal.

(i)BRT = 105˚ [Given in figure]

ART = 180-105 = 75˚ [ART and BRT form linear pair]

Hence ART is 75˚.

(ii)RTD = 75˚ [ART and RTD are alternate interior angles]

CTQ = 75˚ [RTD and CTQ are vertically opposite angles]

Hence CTQ is 75˚.

(iii)DTQ = 180- CTQ [DTQ and CTQ form linear pair]

DTQ = 180-75 = 105˚

Hence DTQ is 105˚.

(iv)PRB = 180-BRT [PRB and BRT form a linear pair]

PRB = 180-105 = 75˚

Hence PRB is 75˚.

**Practice Set 2.2 Page 21**

**1. In figure 2.18, y = 108° and x = 71° Are the lines m and n parallel ? Justify ?**

**Solution:**

Given y = 108˚

x = 71˚

If lines m and n are parallel, then angles x and y are supplementary. [Interior angles test]

Here x+y = 71+108 = 179 ≠ 180

So angles x and y are not supplementary.

Angles x and y fail the interior angle test for parallel lines.

Hence m and n are not parallel.

**2. In figure 2.19, if a b then prove that line l || line m.**

**Solution:**

Given a b

To prove : line *l *line m.

Proof:

Consider x in figure.

** **

**Solution:**

Given a b and x y

To prove: line l line n

Proof:

a b [Given]

But ∠a and ∠b* *are corresponding angles formed by a transversal K of line m and line l.

line m line l ….(i) [corresponding angles test]

Also we have,

x ≅ y

mx = my

But x and y* *are alternate interior angles formed by a transversal OP of line m and line n.

line m line *n*……(ii) [alternate angles test]

From (i) and (ii)

line m line l and line m || line *n.*

If two lines are both parallel to a third line, then they are also parallel to each other.

line l line *n*

Hence proved.

**4. In figure 2.21, if ray BA || ray DE, C = 50° and D = 100°. Find the measure of ABC. **

**(Hint : Draw a line passing through point C and parallel to line AB.)**

**Solution:**

Draw a line passing XY through point C and parallel to line AB.

line XY ray AB

Given ray AB ray DE

line XYray DE

DC is the transversal.

DCX = CDE = 100˚ [Alternate interior angles]

DCX = DCB +BCX [Angle addition property]

100 = 50 +BCX [DCB = 50˚]

BCX = 100-50 = 50˚

Consider line XY parallel ray AB.

BC is the transversal.

BCX+ABC = 180˚ [Interior angles are supplementary]

ABC = 180-BCX

= 180-50 = 130˚

Hence ABC is 130˚.

**5. In figure 2.22, ray AE || ray BD, ray AF is the bisector of EAB and ray BC is the bisector of ABD. Prove that line AF || line BC.**

**Solution:**

Given: Ray AEray BD.

Ray AF is the bisectors of EAB

Ray BC is the bisector of ABD

To prove: line AFline BC

Proof:

Ray AE ray BD

seg AB is their transversal.

DBA = EAB…..(i) [Alternate interior angles]

FAB = ½ EAB [AF is the bisector of EAB]

EAB = 2FAB…..(ii)

ABC = ½ DBA [BC is the bisector of ABD]

DBA = 2ABC ……(iii)

2FAB = 2ABC [From (i), (ii) and (iii)]

FAB = ABC [Divide both sides of equation by 2]

FAB and ABC are alternate interior angles on lines AF and BC when AB is the transversal.

line AFline BC [Alternate angles test]

Hence proved.

**6. A transversal EF of line AB and line CD intersects the lines at point P and Q respectively. Ray PR and ray QS are parallel and bisectors of BPQ and PQC respectively. Prove that line AB || line CD**.

**Solution:**

Given : Ray PRRay QS

Ray PR is the bisector of BPQ.

Ray QS is the bisector of PQC.

To Prove : Line ABline CD

Proof:

Ray PRRay QS

PQ is the transversal.

QPR = PQS…..(i) [Alternate interior angles]

QPR = ½ BPQ…..(ii) [Ray PR is the bisector of BPQ]

PQS = ½ PQC……(iii) [Ray QS is the bisector of PQC]

Substitute (ii) and (iii) in (i)

½ BPQ = ½ PQC

BPQ = PQC

BPQ and PQC are alternate interior angles on AB and CD when line EF is the transversal.

line ABline CD [Alternate angles test]

Hence proved.

**transversal is …………**

** (A) 0° (B) 90° (C) 180° (D) 360°**

** (A) 2 (B) 4 (C) 8 (D) 16**

**Solution:**

The number of angles formed by a transversal of two lines is 8.

Hence Option C is the answer.

**(A) 40° (B) 140° (C) 50° (D) 180°**

**Solution:**

**(iv) In ABC, A = 76°, B = 48°, C = ………….. **

**(A) 66° (B) 56° (C) 124° (D) 28°**

**Solution:**

Sum of angles of a triangle is equal to 180˚.

Given A = 76˚ and B = 48˚

A+B+C = 180˚

76+48+C = 180

C = 180-(76+48) = 180-124 = 56˚

Hence Option B is the answer.

**(A) 105° (B) 15° (C) 75° (D) 45°**

**Solution:**

**Solution:**

(i) Two angles are complementary if their sum is equal to 90˚.

Ray PR Ray PQ

RPQ = 90˚

RPB+BPQ = 90˚ [Angle addition property]

RPB and BPQ are a pair of complementary angles.

(ii) Two angles are supplementary if their sum is equal to 180˚.

Ray PA Ray PB [Given]

APB = 90˚

APB+RPQ = 90+90 = 180˚

APB and RPQ are a pair of supplementary angles.

(iii)Two angles are congruent if they have same measures.

RPQ APB

RPQ and APB are a pair of congruent angles.

**Solution:**

Proof:

x = 130˚ [x and 130 ˚vertically opposite angles]

y = 50˚ [y and 50 ˚vertically opposite angles]

Here ABD +CDB = 130+50 = 180

But, ∠ ABD and ∠CDB are a pair of interior angles on lines l and m when line n is the transversal.

line *l*line m [Interior angles test]

Hence proved.

**5. Line AB || line CD || line EF and line QP is their transversal. If y : z = 3 : 7 then find the measure of x. (See figure 2.25.)**

**Solution:**

Given y:z = 3:7

Let k be a common multiple.

y = 3k

z = 7k……(i)

Given line AB line EF.

PQ is the transversal.

x = z [Alternate interior angles]

x = 7k…..(ii)

Given line AB line CD.

PQ is the transversal.

x+y = 180˚ [Interior angles on same side of transversal are supplementary]

7k+3k = 180

10k = 180

k = 180/10 = 18

x = 7k [From (ii)]

= 7×18 = 126˚

Hence measure of x is 126˚.

**6. In figure 2.26, if line q || line r, line p is their transversal and if a = 80° find the values of f and g.**

**Solution:**

Given line qline r.

Line p is the transversal.

a = 80˚

c = a = 80˚ [a and c are vertically opposite angles]

f +c = 180 [f and c are interior angles on same side of transversal]

f = 180-80 = 100˚

g +f = 180 [Linear pair]

g = 180-100 = 80˚

Hence measure of f and g are 100˚ and 80˚ respectively.

**7. In figure 2.27, if line AB || line CF and line BC || line ED then prove that ABC = FDE**

**Solution:**

Given: Line AB line CF and BC is their transversal.

To prove : ABC = FDE

Proof:

Given line AB line CF and BC is their transversal.

ABC = DCB ….(i) [Alternate interior angles]

Given line BC line ED and CD is their transversal.

DCB = FDE….(ii) [Corresponding angles]

ABC = FDE [from (i) and (ii)]

Hence proved.

**8. In figure 2.28, line PS is a transversal of parallel line AB and line CD. If Ray QX, ray QY, ray RX, ray RY are angle bisectors, then prove that QXRY is a rectangle.**

**Solution:**

Given PS is a transversal of parallel line AB and CD.

Ray QX, ray QY, ray RX, ray RY are angle bisectors.

To Prove: QXRY is a rectangle.

Proof:

XQA = XQR = x°…(i) [Ray QX bisects AQR]

YQR = YQB = y°….(ii) [Ray QY bisects BQR]

XRQ = XRC = u° ….. (iii) [Ray RX bisects CRQ]

YRQ = YRD = v° …(iv) [Ray RY bisects DRQ]

line AB line CD .

Line PS is their transversal.

AQR+ CRQ= 180° [Interior angles on same side of transversal]

AQR = XQA+XQR [Angle addition property]

CRQ = XRC+XRQ [Angle addition property]

(XQA+XQR)+(XRC +XRQ) = 180°

(x+x)+(u+u) = 180° [From (i) and (ii)]

2x+2u = 180°

2(x+u) = 180°

x+u = 90° ……..(v)

In XQR

XQR +XRQ+QXR = 180° [Angle sum property of triangle]

x+u +QXR = 180° [From (i) and (iii)]

90 + QXR = 180° [From (v)]

QXR = 180°-90°

QXR = 90° …..(vi)

Similarily we can prove that,

y+v = 90°

Hence QYR = 90° ……(vii)

Now, AQR+BQR = 180° [Linear pair]

AQR = XQA+XQR [Angle addition property]

BQR = YQR+YQB [Angle addition property]

(XQA +XQR)+(YQR+YQB) = 180°

(x+x)+(y+y) = 180° [From (i) and (ii)]

2x+2y = 180°

2(x+y) = 180°

x+y = 90°

i.e. XQR +YQR = 90° [From (i) and (ii)]

XQY = 90° ….(viii) [Angle addition property]

Similarly we can prove that,

XRY = 90° …(ix)

In QXRY

QXR = QYR = XQY = XRY = 90° [From (vi), (vii), (viii) and (ix)]

QXRY is a parallelogram with all angles are right angles.

Rectangle is a parallelogram in which all angles are right angles.

QXRY is a rectangle.

Hence proved.
