Let us assume the angles be x, 2x, 3x, and 4x

Then,

x + 2x + 3x + 4x = 360^{o}

10x = 360^{o}

x = 360/10

x = 36

Therefore the angles are x = 36^{o}

2x = 2 Ã— 36 = 72^{o}

3x = 3 Ã— 36 = 108^{o}

4x = 4 Ã— 36 = 144^{o}

In parallelogram âˆ P and âˆ Q are supplementary.

We know that, sum of supplementary angle is equal to 180^{o}.

Then, âˆ P + âˆ Q = 180^{o}

âˆ 60^{o} + âˆ Q = 180^{o}

âˆ P = 180^{o} â€“ 60^{o}

âˆ P = 120^{o}

And also, opposite angles âˆ P and âˆ R are equal in parallelogram.

So, âˆ P = âˆ R = 60^{o}

âˆ Q = âˆ S = 120^{o}

Therefore, the other three angles of parallelograms are 60^{o}, 120^{o} and 120^{o}.

âˆ BCD = 30^{o} â€¦ [âˆµopposite angles of parallelogram are equal]

Now, let us consider the triangle CBD

From angle sum property, âˆ DBC + âˆ BCD + âˆ CDB = 180^{o}

90^{o} + 30^{o} + âˆ CDB = 180^{o}

120^{o} + âˆ CDB = 180^{o}

âˆ CDB = 180^{o} â€“ 120^{o}

âˆ CDB = 60^{o}

âˆ´âˆ BEC = 60^{o}, because opposite angles of parallelogram are equal.

By the rule of exterior angle property of triangle

âˆ STO + âˆ TSO = âˆ SOE

x + 40^{o} = 90^{o}

x = 90^{o} â€“ 40^{o}

x = 50^{o}

**Solution:-**

The number of sides in a regular polygon having measure of an exterior angle as 72^{o} is 5.

We know that, the measure of each exterior angle of a regular pentagon is 360^{o}/n.

Where â€˜nâ€™ is the number of sides in the polygon,

Then, pentagon has exterior angle = 72^{o}

So, 72^{o} = 360^{o}/n

n = 360^{o}/72^{o}

n = 5

**Solution:-**

In trapezium ABCD with AB||CD, if âˆ A = 100^{o}, then âˆ D =80^{o}.

We know that, in trapezium adjacent angles of non â€“ parallel sides are supplementary.

âˆ A + âˆ D = 180^{o}

100^{o} + âˆ D = 180^{o}

âˆ D = 180^{o} â€“ 100^{o}

âˆ D = 80^{o}
