RBSE Maths Chapter 5: Exercise 5.1 Textbook Important Questions and Solutions

Question 1: If angles (2x + 4)° and (x – 1)° form a linear pair, then find out the measure of the angles.

Solution:

Given that the angle (2x + 4)° and (x – 1)° form a linear pair.

That means,

(2x + 4)° + (x – 1)° = 180°

3x + 3° = 180°

3x = 180° – 3°

3x = 177°

x = 177°/3 = 59°

Now,

2x + 4 = 2(59°) + 4° = 118° + 4° = 122°

x – 1 = 59° – 1 = 58°

Therefore, the linear pair of angles are 122° and 58°.

Question 2: From the given figure,

(i) Find the measure of ∠BOD

(ii) Find the measure of ∠AOD

(iii) Which pair of angles have vertically opposite angles?

(iv) Find the adjacent supplementary angles of ∠AOC.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q2

Solution:

From the given figure,

(i) ∠AOC = 52°

∠AOC and ∠BOD are vertically opposite angles.

Therefore, ∠BOD = 52°

(ii) ∠AOC and ∠AOD form a linear pair.

By Linear pair axiom,

∠AOC + ∠AOD = 180°

52° + ∠AOD = 180°

∠AOD = 180° – 52°

∠AOD = 128°

(iii) From the given figure, it is clear that there are two sets of linear pair angles.

∠AOC and ∠BOD

∠AOD and ∠BOC

(iv) We know that supplementary angles add up to 180°

Hence, the adjacent supplementary angles of ∠AOC are ∠AOD and ∠BOC.

Question 3: In the figure, OP, OQ, OR and OS are four rays. Prove that:

∠POQ + ∠QOR + ∠SOR + ∠POS = 360°

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q3

Solution:

Extend OQ to get the line OT.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q3 solution

Here,

∠POT and ∠POQ form a linear pair.

By Linear pair axiom.

∠POT + ∠POQ = 180° ….(i)

Similarly,

∠TOS, ∠SOR and ∠QOR form a linear pair again.

Thus,

∠TOS + ∠SOR + ∠QOR = 180° ….(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii),

∠POT + ∠POQ + ∠TOS + ∠SOR + ∠QOR = 180° + 180°

∠POT + ∠POQ + ∠TOS + ∠SOR + ∠QOR = 360° ….(iii)

We know that,

∠POT + ∠TOS = ∠POS ….(iv)

From (iii) and (iv),

∠POS + ∠POQ + ∠SOR + ∠QOR = 360°

Hence proved.

RBSE Maths Chapter 5: Exercise 5.2 Textbook Important Questions and Solutions

Question 4: In the given figure, lines AB, CD and EF are parallel to each other. Find the values of ∠x, ∠y, ∠z and ∠p.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q4

Solution:

Given that AB ∥ CD ∥ EF

∠z and 58° are corresponding angles.

Therefore, ∠z = 58°

∠z and ∠x are alternate interior angles.

That means, ∠z = ∠x

Therefore, ∠x = 58°

∠z and ∠p form a linear pair.

By Linear pair axiom,

∠z + ∠p = 180°

58° + ∠p = 180°

∠p = 180° – 58° = 122°

Similarly, ∠x and ∠y also form a linear pair.

∠x + ∠y = 180°

58° + ∠y = 180°

∠y = 180° – 58° = 122°

Hence, ∠p = 122°, ∠x = 25°, ∠y = 122°, ∠z = 58°.

Question 5: In the below figure, AB ∥ EF, find the values of ∠x and ∠y.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q5

Solution:

Given that AB ∥ EF.

∠A = 125

∠E = 141

Draw a line CD which is parallel to the given lines.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q5 solution

∠A and ∠ACD are the interior angles of the same side of the transversal.

∠A + ∠ACD = 180°

125° + ∠ACD = 180°

∠ACD = 180° – 125° = 55°

Similarly,

∠E and ∠DCE are the interior angles of the same side of the transversal.

∠E + ∠DCE = 180°

141° + ∠DCE = 180°

∠DCE = 180° – 141° = 39°

Now, ∠x = ∠ACD + ∠DCE

= 55° + 39° = 94°

We know that, the angle around the point = 360°

∠x + ∠y = 360°

94° + ∠y = 360°

∠y = 360° – 94° = 266°

Therefore, ∠x = 94° and ∠y = 266°.

Question 6: In the below figure, if l ∥ m, then find the angles equivalent to ∠1.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q6

Solution:

Given that l ∥ m.

∠1 and ∠5 are the corresponding angles.

∠1 = ∠5

∠1 = ∠3 (vertically opposite angles)

∠1 = ∠7 (alternate exterior angles)

From the above statements,

∠3, ∠5, and ∠7 are the angles equivalent to ∠1.

Question 7: In the below figure, ∠1 = 60° and ∠6 = 120°, then show that m and n are parallel.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q7

Solution:

Given,

∠1 = 60° and ∠6 = 120°

∠1 = ∠3 = 60 (vertically opposite angles)

Now,

∠3 + ∠6 = 60° + 120° = 180°

That means, the sum of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal is equal to 180°

Therefore, the lines m and n are parallel to each other, i.e. m ∥ n.

Question 8: AP and BQ are two bisectors of alternate angles of two parallel lines l and m and its transversal n. Show that AP ∥ BQ.

Solution:

Given that l and m are parallel to each other and n is the transversal.

Also, AP and BQ are the two bisectors of two alternate angles of the parallel lines.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q8 solution

∠1 = ∠2 (alternate interior angles)

Thus,

(½) ∠1 = (½) ∠2 (since AP and BQ are bisectors)

(½) ∠PAB = (½) ∠QBA

∠PAB = ∠QBA

Here, the pair of alternate angles formed by the transversal AB which intersects the two lines AP and BQ are equal.

Therefore, AP is parallel to BQ, i.e. AP ∥ BQ.

Question 9: In the figure, BA ∥ ED, then show that: ∠ABC + ∠DEF = 180°

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q9

Solution:

Given

Let us extend ED to intersect BC.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q9 solution

Given, BA ∥ ED.

∠1 = ∠2 ….(i)

(corresponding angles)

Also,

BC ∥ EF (from the figure)

Here, the sum of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal is equal to 180°.

∠2 + ∠3 = 180° ….(ii)

From (i) and (ii),

∠1 + ∠3 = 180°

That means,

∠ABC + ∠DEF = 180°

Question 10: In the figure, DE ∥ QR and AP and BP are bisectors of ∠EAB and ∠RBA, then find out the value of ∠APB.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q10

Solution:

Given, DE ∥ QR

Here, the sum of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal is equal to 180°.

That means,

∠EAB + ∠RBA = 180°….(i)

Dividing equation (i) by 2,

(1/2)∠EAB + (1/2)∠RBA = 90°….(ii)

Also, given that AP and BP are bisectors of ∠EAB and ∠RBA, respectively.

(1/2)∠EAB = ∠PAB ….(iii)

(1/2)∠RBA = ∠PBA ….(iv)

In triangle APB,

∠PAB + ∠PBA + ∠APB = 180°

Substituting (iii) and (iv),

(1/2)∠EAB + (1/2)∠RBA + ∠APB = 180°

90° + ∠APB = 180°

∠APB = 180° – 90° = 90°

Therefore, ∠APB = 90°

Question 11: If two straight lines are perpendicular to two parallel lines, then show that these straight lines are parallel to each other.

Solution:

Let us draw two parallel lines which are perpendicular to two straight lines.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q11 solution

PQ and RS are perpendicular to two parallel lines l and m.

∠PAB = 90° and ∠RBA = 90°

∠PAB = ∠RBA = 90°

(corresponding angles)

Therefore, PQ is parallel to RS.

Question 12: In the below figure, if PQ ∥ RS, ∠MXQ = 135° and ∠MYR = 40°, then find ∠XMY.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q12

Solution:

Given,

PQ ∥ RS, ∠MXQ = 135° and ∠MYR = 40°

Draw a line AB parallel to PQ and RS through M.

RBSE Class 9 Maths chapter 5 imp Q12 solution

AB ∥ PQ

We know that,

Sum of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal is equal to 180°.

135° + ∠XMB = 180°

∠XMB = 180° – 135° = 45° ….(i)

Also,

AB ∥ RS

∠BMY = ∠MYR

∠BMY = 40°….(ii)

(alternate interior angles)

Adding (i) and (ii),

∠XMB + ∠BMY = 45° + 40° = 85°

Therefore, ∠XMY = 85°

RBSE Class 9 Maths Chapter 5 add imp Q 15

Solution:

Given,

∠POR : ∠ROQ = 4 : 8

Let ∠POR = 4x, ∠ROQ = 8x

We know that vertically opposite angles are equal.

∠POQ = ∠SOQ = 4x

∠ROQ = ∠POS = 8x

Sum of the angles around a point is equal to 360 degrees.

∠POQ + ∠SOQ + ∠ROQ + ∠POS = 360°

4x + 4x + 8x + 8x = 360°

24x = 360°

x = 360°/24 = 15°

4x = 4(15°) = 60°

8x = 8(15°) = 120°

Therefore, ∠POQ = ∠SOQ = 60°

∠ROQ = ∠POS = 120°
