 # NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Maths Chapter 6 - Lines And Angles Exercise 6.1

Most of the time students don’t ask their doubts in class due to shyness and fear of the teacher. Due to this, they don’t get to know how the questions are being solved by the teacher. This happens most often in Maths class. In other subjects, students can still find the answer if they re-read the chapter. But for mathematics, if they miss the concepts, then they would not be able to solve it. So, to help students here, we have provided the detailed NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Maths Chapter 6 Lines And Angles Exercise 6.1.

## NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Maths Chapter 6 – Lines and Angles Exercise 6.1

1. In Fig. 6.13, lines AB and CD intersect at O. If ∠AOC +∠BOE = 70° and ∠BOD = 40°, find ∠BOE and reflex ∠COE. Solution:

From the diagram, we have

(∠AOC +∠BOE +∠COE) and (∠COE +∠BOD +∠BOE) forms a straight line.

So, ∠AOC+∠BOE +∠COE = ∠COE +∠BOD+∠BOE = 180°

Now, by putting the values of ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° and ∠BOD = 40° we get

∠COE = 110° and ∠BOE = 30°

So, reflex ∠COE = 360o – 110o = 250o

2. In Fig. 6.14, lines XY and MN intersect at O. If ∠POY = 90° and a : b = 2 : 3, find c. Solution:

We know that the sum of linear pair are always equal to 180°

So,

∠POY +a +b = 180°

Putting the value of ∠POY = 90° (as given in the question) we get,

a+b = 90°

Now, it is given that a : b = 2 : 3 so,

Let a be 2x and b be 3x

∴ 2x+3x = 90°

Solving this we get

5x = 90°

So, x = 18°

∴ a = 2×18° = 36°

Similarly, b can be calculated and the value will be

b = 3×18° = 54°

From the diagram, b+c also forms a straight angle so,

b+c = 180°

c+54° = 180°

∴ c = 126°

3. In Fig. 6.15, ∠PQR = ∠PRQ, then prove that ∠PQS = ∠PRT. Solution:

Since ST is a straight line so,

PQS+PQR = 180° (linear pair) and

PRT+PRQ = 180° (linear pair)

Now, PQS + PQR = PRT+PRQ = 180°

Since PQR =PRQ (as given in the question)

PQS = PRT. (Hence proved).

4. In Fig. 6.16, if x+y = w+z, then prove that AOB is a line. Solution:

For proving AOB is a straight line, we will have to prove x+y is a linear pair

i.e. x+y = 180°

We know that the angles around a point are 360° so,

x+y+w+z = 360°

In the question, it is given that,

x+y = w+z

So, (x+y)+(x+y) = 360°

2(x+y) = 360°

∴ (x+y) = 180° (Hence proved).

5. In Fig. 6.17, POQ is a line. Ray OR is perpendicular to line PQ. OS is another ray lying between rays OP and OR. Prove that ∠ROS = ½ (∠QOS – ∠POS). Solution:

In the question, it is given that (OR ⊥ PQ) and ∠POQ = 180°

So, ∠POS+∠ROS+∠ROQ = 180°

Now, ∠POS+∠ROS = 180°- 90° (Since ∠POR = ∠ROQ = 90°)

∴ ∠POS + ∠ROS = 90°

Now, ∠QOS = ∠ROQ+∠ROS

It is given that ∠ROQ = 90°,

∴ ∠QOS = 90° +∠ROS

Or, ∠QOS – ∠ROS = 90°

As ∠POS + ∠ROS = 90° and ∠QOS – ∠ROS = 90°, we get

∠POS + ∠ROS = ∠QOS – ∠ROS

2 ∠ROS + ∠POS = ∠QOS

Or, ∠ROS = ½ (∠QOS – ∠POS) (Hence proved).

6. It is given that ∠XYZ = 64° and XY is produced to point P. Draw a figure from the given information. If ray YQ bisects ∠ZYP, find ∠XYQ and reflex ∠QYP.

Solution: Here, XP is a straight line

So, ∠XYZ +∠ZYP = 180°

Putting the value of ∠XYZ = 64° we get,

64° +∠ZYP = 180°

∴ ∠ZYP = 116°

From the diagram, we also know that ∠ZYP = ∠ZYQ + ∠QYP

Now, as YQ bisects ∠ZYP,

∠ZYQ = ∠QYP

Or, ∠ZYP = 2∠ZYQ

∴ ∠ZYQ = ∠QYP = 58°

Again, ∠XYQ = ∠XYZ + ∠ZYQ

By putting the value of ∠XYZ = 64° and ∠ZYQ = 58° we get.

∠XYQ = 64°+58°

Or, ∠XYQ = 122°

Now, reflex ∠QYP = 180°+XYQ

We computed that the value of ∠XYQ = 122°.

So,

∠QYP = 180°+122°

∴ ∠QYP = 302°

This exercise will help students recall the types of angles (acute, obtuse, right, straight, reflex, complementary and supplementary) that they have studied in earlier classes. The new concepts in the exercise will start from the intersecting and non-intersecting lines, and then Pairs of Angles are explained in detail along with a theorem proof, as well as some examples in the NCERT textbook.

The questions in the exercise are based on finding the value of angles from the given diagram and proving the statements. In the NCERT Class 9 Maths Solutions, we have provided the step by step solutions along with the diagram for students convenience. Also, the questions are solved by the easiest method, so students can easily understand them.
