* (vi) 72°. 18°*

** Ans:** If the sum of measures of angles is 90°, they are complimentary angles. If the sum of measures of angles is 180°, they are known as supplementary angles.

** (i) 60°, 120°**

Sum of value of the above angles = 60° + 120° =180°

The above angles are supplementary.

** (ii) 67°, 23°**

Sum of value of the above angles = 67° + 23° = 90°

The above angles are complementary.

** (iii) 108°, 72°**

Sum of value of the above angles = 108° + 72° =180°

The above angles are supplementary.

** (iv) 150°, 30°**

Sum of value of the above angles =150° + 30° =180°

The above angles are supplementary.

** (v) 50°, 40°**

Sum of value of the above angles = 50° + 40° = 90°

These angles are complementary angles.

** (vi) 72°, 18°**

Sum of value of the above angles = 72° + 18° = 90°

These angles are complementary angles.

*Q4: Determine the angle that is complimentary by itself.*

** Ans:** Let an angle be a.

Let complement of the angle is also a.

If the sum of measures of angle is 90°, it is complimentary angles

a + a = 90°

2a = 90°

a = 90°/2 = 45°

*Q5. Determine the angle that is supplementary by itself.*

** Ans:** Let an angle be a.

Let the supplement of the angle is also a.

If the sum of measures of angle is 180°, it is known as supplementary angle.

a + a = 180°

2a = 180°

a = 90°

*Q6. In the below given figure, \(\angle 1\) and \(\angle 2\) are supplementary angles. If \(\angle 1\) is decreased, what should be the change \(\angle 2\) so that it remains supplementary?*

** Ans:** \(\angle 1\) and \(\angle 2\) are supplementary angles.

If \(\angle 1\) is decreased, then \(\angle 2 \) should also be increased by the same value so that this angle pair remains supplementary.

*Q7: Can 2 angles be supplementary if both the angles are:*

** (i) Obtuse?**

** (ii) Acute? **

** (iii) Right?**

*Ans:*

(i) No. Obtuse angle will always be greater than 90. Even if we add the minimum supplementary, it will be more than 180°. So, two obtuse angles can’t be a supplementary angle pair.

(ii) No. Because acute angle will always be lesser than 90°. Even if we add the maximum acute angle i.e, 89, it cannot add up to 180°. So, two acute angles cannot make a supplementary angle pair.

(iii) Yes, The value of right angle= 90° and sum of two right angles make 180°

So, 2 right angles together can make a supplementary angle pair.

*Q8: Find out whether the complementary of an angle greater than 45° is lesser than 45° or greater than 45° or equal to 45°.*

** Ans**: Let X and Y are two angles which make complementary angle pair and X is greater than 45°.

X + Y = 90°

Y = 90° – X

Therefore, B will be lesser than 45°.

**Q9. In the following figure:**

**(e) Is \(\angle 1\) vertically opposite to \(\angle 1\)?**

**(f) Which angle is vertically opposite to \(\angle 5\)?**

*Ans:*

(a) Yes. Because they have a vertex O as common and also arm OC as common. Also, their non-common arms, OA and OE are on either side of the common arm.

(b) No. They have vertex O as common and also arm OA as common. However, their non-common arms, OC and OE are on the same side of the common arm. So, these are not adjacent to each other.

(c) Yes. Since they have vertex O as common and arm OE as common. Also, their non-common arms. OC and OD. are opposite rays.

(d) Yes. Since \(\angle BOD\) and \(\angle DOA\) have vertex O as common and their non-common arms are opposite to each other.

(e) Yes. Since these angles are formed by the intersection of two straight lines namely, AB and CD.

(f) \(\angle COB\) is the vertically opposite angle of \(\angle 5\) as these are formed due to the intersection of two straight lines, AB and CD.

(ii) \(\angle 2\) and \(\angle 5\), \(\angle 1\) and \(\angle 1\) + \(\angle 4\) are vertically opposite angles because these are formed due to intersection of two straight lines.

*Q11. In the below figure, Is \(\angle 1\) adjacent to \(\angle ?\) ?*

* *

* *** Ans:** \(\angle 1\) and \(\angle 2\) are not adjacent angles because they don’t have a common vertex.

*Q12. Find the values of angles A, B and C in each of the following:*

Ans: (i) Since \(\angle A\) and \(\angle 55^{\circ}\) are vertically opposite,

\(\angle A\) = 55 \(^{\circ}\)

\(\angle A\) + \(\angle B\) =\(180^{\circ}\)

\(55^{\circ}\) + \(\angle B\) = \( 180^{\circ}\)

\(\angle B\) = \( 180^{\circ}\) – \( 55^{\circ}\) = \(125^{\circ}\)

\(\angle B\) = \(\angle C\) (Vertically Opposite angles)

\(\angle C\) = \(125^{\circ}\)

(ii) \(\angle C\) = \(40^{\circ}\) (Vertically opposite angles)

\(\angle B\) + \(\angle C\) = \(180^{\circ}\)

\(\angle B\) = \( 180^{\circ}\) – \( 40^{\circ}\) = \(140^{\circ}\)

\( 40^{\circ}\) + \(\angle A\) + \( 25^{\circ}\) = \( 180^{\circ}\)

\( 65^{\circ}\) +\(\angle A\) = \( 180^{\circ}\)

\(\angle A\) = \( 180^{\circ}\) – \( 65^{\circ}\) = \( 115^{\circ}\)

If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, each pair of corresponding angles are equal in measure.

(ii) Given, \(\angle 4=\angle 6\), then \(a||b\) [Alternate angles]

When a transversal cuts two lines such that pairs of alternate interior angles are equal, the lines have to be parallel.

(iii)Given, \(\angle 4+\angle 5=180^{\circ}\), then \(a||b\) [Co-interior angles]

When a transversal cuts two lines, such that pairs of interior angles on the same side of transversal are supplementary, the lines have to be parallel.

*Q3: In the adjoining figure, \(p||q\). Find the unknown angles.*

**Ans:** Given, \(p||q\) and cut by a transversal line.

\(\ because 125^{\circ}+e=180^{\circ}\) [Linear Pair]

\(\ therefore 1e=180^{\circ}-125^{\circ}=55^{\circ}\) ……(1)

Now \(e=f=55^{\circ}\) [Vertically opposite angles]

Also \(a=f=55^{\circ}\) [Alternate interior angles]

\(a+b=180^{\circ}\) [Linear pair]

\(\Rightarrow 55^{\circ}+b=180^{\circ}\) [From equation (1)]

\(\Rightarrow b=180^{\circ}-55^{\circ}=125^{\circ}\)

Now \(a=c=55^{\circ}\) and \(b=d=125^{\circ}\) [Vertically opposite angles]

Thus, \(a=55^{\circ},b=125^{\circ},c=55^{\circ},d=125^{\circ},e=55^{\circ} \: and \: f=55^{\circ}\)

*Q4: Find the values of x in each of the following figures if \(l||m\)*

**Ans:**

(i)Given, \(l||m\) and t is transversal line.

\(\ therefore\) Interior vertically opposite angle between lines l and t=\(110^{\circ}\)

\(\ therefore 110^{\circ}+x=180^{\circ}\) [Supplementary angles]

\(\Rightarrow x=180^{\circ}-110^{\circ}=70^{\circ}\)

(ii)Given, \(l||m\) and t is transversal line.

\(x+2x=180^{\circ}\\ \\ \Rightarrow 3x=180^{\circ} [Interior \;opposite\; angles]\\ \\ \Rightarrow x=\frac{180^{\circ}}{3}=60^{\circ}\)

(iii)Given, \(l||m\) and \(a||b\).

\(x=100^{\circ}\) [Corresponding angles]

\(∴ \angle DGC=70^{\circ}\) ………(i)

(ii) From the figure \(BC\parallel DE\) and DE is a transversal line and \(\angle DGC=70^{\circ}\)

\(\ because \angle DGC=\angle DEF\) (corresponding angles)

\(∴ \angle DGC=70^{\circ}\) ………(i)

*Q6: In the given figure below, decide whether \(l\) is parallel to \(m\).*

**Ans:**

(i) \(126^{\circ}+44^{\circ}=170^{\circ}\)

Here \(l\parallel m\) this condition holds false, because the sum of interior opposite angles are not equal to \(180^{\circ}\).

(ii) \(75^{\circ}+75^{\circ}=150^{\circ}\)

Here \(l\parallel m\) this condition holds false, because the sum of interior opposite angles are not equal to \(180^{\circ}\).

(iii) \(57^{\circ}+123^{\circ}=180^{\circ}\)

Here \(l\parallel m\) this condition holds true, because the sum of interior opposite angles are equal to \(180^{\circ}\).

(iv) \(98^{\circ}+72^{\circ}=170^{\circ}\)

Here \(l\parallel m\) this condition holds false, because the sum of interior opposite angles are not equal to \(180^{\circ}\).

From this chapter, students can tell the name of the angle which is complimentary by itself. Similarly, you can tell which angle is supplementary by itself and learn how to increase or decrease the value of a certain angle so that it remains supplementary. Also, the chapter will help students to identify which are the linear and vertically opposite angles out of the given pair of angles. Even you will come across questions where you have to show the two angles are adjacent or not.
