**1. Find the complement of each of the following angles:**

**(i)**

** **

**Solution:-**

Two angles are said to be complementary if the sum of their measures is 90^{o}.

The given angle is 20^{o}

Let the measure of its complement be x^{o}.

Then,

= x + 20^{o} = 90^{o}

= x = 90^{o} â€“ 20^{o}

= x = 70^{o}

Hence, the complement of the given angle measures 70^{o}.

**(ii)**

**Solution:-**

Two angles are said to be complementary if the sum of their measures is 90^{o}.

The given angle is 63^{o}

Let the measure of its complement be x^{o}.

Then,

= x + 63^{o} = 90^{o}

= x = 90^{o} â€“ 63^{o}

= x = 27^{o}

Hence, the complement of the given angle measures 27^{o}.

**(iii)**

**Solution:-**

Two angles are said to be complementary if the sum of their measures is 90^{o}.

The given angle is 57^{o}

Let the measure of its complement be x^{o}.

Then,

= x + 57^{o} = 90^{o}

Let the measure of its supplement be x^{o}.

Then,

= x + 105^{o} = 180^{o}

= x = 180^{o} â€“ 105^{o}

Let the measure of its supplement be x^{o}.

Then,

= x + 87^{o} = 180^{o}

= x = 180^{o} â€“ 87^{o}

= x = 93^{o}

Hence, the supplement of the given angle measures 93^{o}.

**4. Find the angles which is equal to its complement.**

**Solution:-**

Let the measure of the required angle be x^{o}.

We know that, sum of measures of complementary angle pair is 90^{o}.

Then,

= x + x = 90^{o}

= 2x = 90^{o}

**6. In the given figure, âˆ 1 and âˆ 2 are supplementary angles. If âˆ 1 is decreased, what changes should take place in âˆ 2 so that both angles still remain supplementary.**

**Solution:-**

From the question, it is given that,

âˆ 1 and âˆ 2 are supplementary angles.

If âˆ 1 is decreased, then âˆ 2 must be increased by the same value. Hence, this angle pair remains supplementary.

**7. Can two angles be supplementary if both of them are:**

**(i). Acute?**

**Solution:-**

No. If two angles are acute, means less than 90^{o}, the two angles cannot be supplementary. Because, their sum will be always less than 90^{o}.

**(ii). Obtuse?**

**Solution:-**

No. If two angles are obtuse, means more than 90^{o}, the two angles cannot be supplementary. Because, their sum will be always more than 180^{o}.

**(iii). Right?**

**Solution:-**

Yes. If two angles are right, means both measures 90^{o}, then two angles can form a supplementary pair.

âˆ´90^{o }+ 90^{o} = 180

**8. An angle is greater than 45 ^{o}. Is its complementary angle greater than 45^{o} or equal to 45^{o} or less than 45^{o}?**

**Solution:-**

Let us assume the complementary angles be p and q,

We know that, sum of measures of complementary angle pair is 90^{o}.

Then,

= p + q = 90^{o }

It is given in the question that p > 45^{o}

Adding q on both the sides,

= p + q > 45^{o }+ q

= 90^{o} > 45^{o }+ q

= 90^{o} â€“ 45^{o} > q

= q < 45^{o}

Hence, its complementary angle is less than 45^{o}.

âˆ x = 55^{o}, because vertically opposite angles.

âˆ x + âˆ y = 180^{o} â€¦ [âˆµ linear pair]

= 55^{o} + âˆ y = 180^{o}

= âˆ y = 180^{o} â€“ 55^{o}

= âˆ y = 125^{o }

Then, âˆ y = âˆ z â€¦ [âˆµ vertically opposite angles]

âˆ´ âˆ z = 125^{o}

**(ii)**

**Solution:-**

âˆ z = 40^{o}, because vertically opposite angles.

= âˆ y + 40^{o} = 180^{o}

= âˆ y = 180^{o} â€“ 40^{o}

= âˆ y = 140^{o }

Then, 40 + âˆ x + 25 = 180^{o} â€¦ [âˆµangles on straight line]
