1. Draw an angle and label it as ∠BAC. Construct another angle, equal to ∠BAC.

Solution:

Construct an angle ∠BAC and draw a ray OP.

Taking A as centre and suitable radius, construct an arc which intersects AB and AC at points X and Y.

Taking O as centre and same radius, construct an arc which intersects the arc OP at the point M.

Now measure XY with the help of compass.

Taking M as centre and XY as radius construct an arc which intersects the arc which is drawn from O and name it as point N.

Now join the points O and N and extend it to the point Q.

Here, ∠POQ is the required angle. 2. Draw an obtuse angle. Bisect it. Measure each of the angles so obtained.

Solution:

We know that obtuse angles are those which are greater than 90o and less than 180o.

Construct an obtuse angle ∠BAC.

Taking A as centre with appropriate radius construct an arc which intersects AB and AC at the points P and Q.

Taking P as centre and radius which is more than half of PQ construct an arc.

Taking Q as centre and same radius construct another arc which intersects the previous arc at the point R.

Now join A and R and extend it to the point X.

So the ray AX is the required bisector of ∠BAC.

By measuring ∠BAR and ∠CAR we get ∠BAR = ∠CAR = 65o. 3. Using your protractor, draw an angle of measure 108o. With this angle as given, drawn an angle of 54o.

Solution:

Construct a ray OA.

Using protractor, draw an angle ∠AOB of 108o where 108/2 = 54o

Hence, 54o is half of 108o.

In order to get angle 54o, we must bisect the angle of 108o.

Taking O as centre and convenient radius, construct an arc which cuts the sides OA and OB at the points P and Q.

Taking P as centre and radius which is more than half of PQ construct an arc.

Taking Q as centre and same radius construct another arc which intersects the previous arc and name it as point R.

Now join the points O and R and extend it to the point X.

Here, ∠AOX is the required angle of 54o. 4. Using protractor, draw a right angle. Bisect it to get an angle of measure 45o.

Solution:

Construct a ray OA.

Using a protractor construct ∠AOB of 90o.

Taking O as centre and convenient radius, construct an arc which cuts the sides OA and OB at the points P and Q.

Taking P as centre and radius which is more than half of PQ, construct an arc.

Taking Q as centre and same radius, construct another arc which intersects the previous arc and name it as point R.

Now join the points O and R and extend it to the point X.

Here, ∠AOX is the required angle of 45o where ∠AOB = 90o and ∠AOX = 45o. 5. Draw a linear pair of angles. Bisect each of the two angles. Verify that the two bisecting rays are perpendicular to each other.

Solution:

We know that the two angles which are adjacent and supplementary are known as linear pair of angles.

Construct a line AB and mark a point O on it.

By constructing an angle ∠AOC we get another angle ∠BOC.

Now bisect ∠AOC using a compass and a ruler and get the ray OX.

In the same way bisect ∠BOC and get the ray OY.

We know that

∠XOY = ∠XOC + ∠COY

It can be written as

∠XOY = 1/2 ∠AOC + 1/2 ∠BOC

So we get

∠XOY = 1/2 (∠AOC + ∠BOC)

We know that ∠AOC and ∠BOC are supplementary angles

∠XOY = 1/2 (180) = 90o 6. Draw a pair of vertically opposite angles. Bisect each of the two angles. Verify that the bisecting rays are in the same line.

Solution:

Construct two lines AB and CD which intersects each other at the point O

Since vertically opposite angles are equal we get

∠BOC = ∠AOD and ∠AOC = ∠BOD

Now bisect angle AOC and construct the bisecting ray as OX.

In the same way, we bisect ∠BOD and construct bisecting ray OY.

We get

∠XOA + ∠AOD + ∠DOY = 1/2 ∠AOC + ∠AOD + 1/2 ∠BOD

We know that ∠AOC = ∠BOD

∠XOA + ∠AOD + ∠DOY = 1/2 ∠BOD + ∠AOD + 1/2 ∠BOD

So we get

∠XOA + ∠AOD + ∠DOY = ∠AOD + ∠BOD

AB is a line

We know that ∠AOD and ∠BOD are supplementary angles whose sum is equal to 180o.

∠XOA + ∠AOD + ∠DOY = 180o

The angles on one side of a straight line is always 180o and also the sum of angles is 180o

Here, XY is a straight line where OX and OY are in the same line. 7. Using ruler and compasses only, draw a right angle.

Solution:

Construct a ray OA.

Taking O as centre and convenient radius construct an arc PQ using a compass intersecting the ray OA at the point Q.

Taking P as centre and same radius construct another arc which intersects the arc PQ at the point R.

Taking R as centre and same radius, construct an arc which cuts the arc PQ at the point C opposite to P.

Using C and R as the centre construct two arcs of radius which is more than half of CR intersecting each other at the point S.

Now join the points O and S and extend it to the point B.

Here, ∠AOB is the required angle of 90o. 8. Using ruler and compasses only, draw an angle of measure 135o.

Solution:

Construct a line AB and mark a point O on it.

Taking O as centre and convenient radius, construct an arc PQ using a compass which intersects the line AB at the point P and Q.

Taking P as centre and same radius, construct another arc which intersects the arc PQ at the point R.

Taking Q as centre and same radius, construct another arc which intersects the arc PQ at the point S which is opposite to P.

Considering S and R as centres and radius which is more than half of SR, construct two arcs which intersects each other at the point T.

Now join the points O and T which intersects the arc PQ at the point C.

Considering C and Q as centres and radius which is more than half of CQ, construct two arcs which intersects each other at the point D.

Now join the points O and D and extend it to point X to form the ray OX.

Here, ∠AOX is the required angle of 135o. 9. Using a protractor, draw an angle of measure 72o. With this angle as given, draw angles of measure 36o and 54o.

Solution:

Construct a ray OA.

Using protractor construct ∠AOB of 72o

Taking O as centre and convenient radius, construct an arc which cut sides OA and OB at the point P and Q.

Taking P and Q as centres and radius which is more than half of PQ, construct two arcs which cuts each other at the point R.

Now join the points O and R and extend it to the point X.

Here, OR intersects the arc PQ at the point C.

Taking C and Q as centres and radius which is more than half of CQ, construct two arcs which cuts each other at point T.

Now join the points O and T and extend it to the point Y.

OX bisects ∠AOB

It can be written as

∠AOX = ∠BOX = 72/2 = 36o

OY bisects ∠BOX

It can be written as

∠XOY = ∠BOY = 36/2 = 18o

We know that

∠AOY = ∠AOX + ∠XOY = 36o + 18o = 54o

Here, ∠AOX is the required angle of 36o and ∠AOY is the required angle of 54o.
