**(Hint: Recall angle-sum property of a triangle).**

**Solution:-**

We know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}.

âˆ´ âˆ PQR + âˆ QRP + âˆ RPQ = 180^{o}

= 105^{o}+ 40^{o}+ âˆ RPQ = 180^{o}

= 145^{o} + âˆ RPQ = 180^{o}

= âˆ RPQ = 180^{o}â€“ 145^{0}

= âˆ RPQ = 35^{o}

Hence, the measures of âˆ RPQ is 35^{o}.

Steps of construction:

1. Draw a line segment PQ = 5 cm.

2. At point P, draw a ray L to making an angle of 105^{o} i.e. âˆ LPQ = 35^{o}.

**3. Examine whether you can construct Î”DEF such that EF = 7.2 cm, mâˆ E = 110Â° and**

**mâˆ F = 80Â°. Justify your answer. **

**Solution:-**

From the question it is given that,

EF = 7.2 cm

âˆ E = 110^{o}

âˆ F = 80^{o}

Now we have to check whether it is possible to construct Î”DEF from the given values.

We know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}.

Then,

âˆ D + âˆ E + âˆ F = 180^{o}

âˆ D + 110^{o}+ 80^{o}= 180^{o}

âˆ D + 190^{o} = 180^{o}

âˆ D = 180^{o}â€“ 190^{0}

âˆ D = -10^{o}

We may observe that the sum of two angles is 190^{o} is greater than 180^{o}. So, it is not possible to construct a triangle.

Let us consider Î”ABC is a right angled triangle at âˆ B = 90^{o}
