**(i) Obtuse?**

**(ii) Right?**

**(iii) Acute?**

**Solution:**

(i) No, two obtuse angles cannot be supplementary

Because, the sum of two angles is greater than 90^{o} so their sum will be greater than 180^{o}

(ii) Yes, two right angles can be supplementary

Because, 90^{o} + 90^{o} = 180^{o}

(iii) No, two acute angle cannot be supplementary

Because, the sum of two angles is less than 90^{o} so their sum will also be less than 90^{o}

**9. Name the four pairs of supplementary angles shown in Fig.17.**

** **

**Solution:**

The two angles are said to be supplementary angles if the sum of those angles is 180^{o}

The supplementary angles are

âˆ BOC and âˆ DOB

âˆ BOD and âˆ DOA

âˆ AOC and âˆ DOA

**10. In Fig. 18, A, B, C are collinear points and âˆ DBA = âˆ EBA.**

**(i) Name two linear pairs.**

**(ii) Name two pairs of supplementary angles.**

**Solution:**

(i) Two adjacent angles are said to be form a linear pair of angles, if their non-common arms are two opposite rays.

Therefore linear pairs are

âˆ ABD and âˆ DBC

âˆ ABE and âˆ EBC

(ii) We know that every linear pair forms supplementary angles, these angles are

âˆ ABD and âˆ DBC

âˆ ABE and âˆ EBC

**11. If two supplementary angles have equal measure, what is the measure of each angle?**

**Solution:**

Let p and q be the two supplementary angles that are equal

The two angles are said to be supplementary angles if the sum of those angles is 180^{o}

âˆ p = âˆ q

So,

âˆ p + âˆ q = 180^{o}

âˆ p + âˆ p = 180^{o}

2âˆ p = 180^{o}

âˆ p = 180^{o}/2

âˆ p = 90^{o}

Therefore, âˆ p = âˆ q = 90^{o}

**12. If the complement of an angle is 28 ^{o}, then find the supplement of the angle.**

**Solution:**

Given complement of an angle is 28^{o}

Here, let x be the complement of the given angle 28^{o}

Therefore, âˆ x + 28^{o} = 90^{o}

âˆ x = 90^{o} â€“ 28^{o}

= 62^{o}

So, the supplement of the angle = 180^{o} â€“ 62^{o}

= 118^{o}

**13. In Fig. 19, name each linear pair and each pair of vertically opposite angles:**

**Solution:**

Two adjacent angles are said to be linear pair of angles, if their non-common arms are two opposite rays.

Therefore linear pairs are listed below:

âˆ 3 and âˆ 4

âˆ 1 and âˆ 4

âˆ 5 and âˆ 6

âˆ 6 and âˆ 7

âˆ 7 and âˆ 8

âˆ 8 and âˆ 5

âˆ 9 and âˆ 10

âˆ 10 and âˆ 11

âˆ 11 and âˆ 12

âˆ 12 and âˆ 9

The two angles are said to be vertically opposite angles if the two intersecting lines have no common arms.

Therefore supplement of the angle are listed below:

âˆ 1 and âˆ 3

âˆ 4 and âˆ 2

âˆ 5 and âˆ 7

âˆ 6 and âˆ 8

âˆ 9 and âˆ 11

âˆ 10 and âˆ 12

**14. In Fig. 20, OE is the bisector of âˆ BOD. If âˆ 1 = 70 ^{o}, find the magnitude of âˆ 2, âˆ 3 and âˆ 4. **

**Solution:**

Given, âˆ 1 = 70^{o}

âˆ 3 = 2(âˆ 1)

= 2(70^{o})

âˆ 3 = 140^{o}

âˆ 3 = âˆ 4

As, OE is the angle bisector,

âˆ DOB = 2(âˆ 1)

= 2(70^{o})

= 140^{o}

âˆ DOB + âˆ AOC + âˆ COB +âˆ AOD = 360^{o} [sum of the angle of circle = 360^{o}]

140^{o} + 140^{o} + 2(âˆ COB) = 360^{o}

Since, âˆ COB = âˆ AOD

2(âˆ COB) = 360^{o} â€“ 280^{o}

2(âˆ COB) = 80^{o}

âˆ COB = 80^{o}/2

âˆ COB = 40^{o}

Therefore, âˆ COB = âˆ AOD = 40^{o}

The angles are, âˆ 1 = 70^{o}, âˆ 2 = 40^{o}, âˆ 3 = 140^{o} and âˆ 4 = 40^{o}

**15. One of the angles forming a linear pair is a right angle. What can you say about its other angle?**

**Solution:**

Given one of the angle of a linear pair is the right angle that is 90^{o}

We know that linear pair angle is 180^{o}

Therefore, the other angle is

180^{o} â€“ 90^{o} = 90^{o}

**16. One of the angles forming a linear pair is an obtuse angle. What kind of angle is the other?**

**Solution:**

Given one of the angles of a linear pair is obtuse, then the other angle should be acute, because only then their sum will be 180^{o}.

**17. One of the angles forming a linear pair is an acute angle. What kind of angle is the other?**

**Solution:**

Given one of the Angles of a linear pair is acute, then the other angle should be obtuse, only then their sum will be 180^{o}.

**18. Can two acute angles form a linear pair?**

**Solution:**

No, two acute angles cannot form a linear pair because their sum is always less than 180^{o}.

**19. If the supplement of an angle is 65 ^{o}, then find its complement.**

**Solution:**

Let x be the required angle

So, x + 65^{o} = 180^{o}

x = 180^{o} â€“ 65^{o}

x = 115^{o}

The two angles are said to be complementary angles if the sum of those angles is 90^{o} here it is more than 90^{o} therefore the complement of the angle cannot be determined.

**20. Find the value of x in each of the following figures.**

** **

**Solution:**

(i) Â We know that âˆ BOA + âˆ BOC = 180^{o}

^{o}]

^{o}]

3x^{o} + 2x^{o} = 180^{o}

5x^{o} = 180^{o}

x^{o} = 180^{o}/5

x^{o} = 36^{o}

(iii) We know that âˆ LOP + âˆ PON + âˆ NOM = 180^{o}

^{o}]

Since, 35^{o} + x^{o} + 60^{o} = 180^{o}

x^{o} = 180^{o} â€“ 35^{o} â€“ 60^{o}

x^{o} = 180^{o} â€“ 95^{o}

x^{o} = 85^{o}

(iv) We know that âˆ DOC + âˆ DOE + âˆ EOA + âˆ AOB+ âˆ BOC = 360^{o}

83^{o} + 92^{o} + 47^{o} + 75^{o} + x^{o} = 360^{o}

x^{o} + 297^{o} = 360^{o}

x^{o} = 360^{o} â€“ 297^{o}

x^{o} = 63^{o}

(v) We know that âˆ ROS + âˆ ROQ + âˆ QOP + âˆ POS = 360^{o}

3x^{o} + 2x^{o} + x^{o} + 2x^{o} = 360^{o}

8x^{o} = 360^{o}

x^{o} = 360^{o}/8

x^{o} = 45^{o}

(vi) Â Linear pair: The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their nonâ€“common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180^{o}

Therefore 3x^{o} = 105^{o}

x^{o} = 105^{o}/3

x^{o} = 35^{o}

**21. In Fig. 22, it being given that âˆ 1 = 65 ^{o}, find all other angles.**

** **

**Solution:**

Given from the figure 22, âˆ 1 = âˆ 3 are the vertically opposite angles

Therefore, âˆ 3 = 65^{o}

Here, âˆ 1 + âˆ 2 = 180Â° are the linear pair [The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their nonâ€“common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180^{o}]

Therefore, âˆ 2 = 180^{o} â€“ 65^{o}

= 115^{o}

âˆ 2 = âˆ 4 are the vertically opposite angles [from the figure]

Therefore, âˆ 2 = âˆ 4 = 115^{o}

And âˆ 3 = 65^{o}

**22. In Fig. 23, OA and OB are opposite rays:**

**(i) If x = 25 ^{o}, what is the value of y?**

**(ii) If y = 35 ^{o}, what is the value of x?**

**Solution:**

(i) âˆ AOC + âˆ BOC = 180^{o} [The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their nonâ€“common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180^{o}]

2y + 5^{0} + 3x = 180^{o}

3x + 2y = 175^{o}

Given If x = 25^{o}, then

3(25^{o}) + 2y = 175^{o}

75^{o} + 2y = 175^{o}

2y = 175^{o} â€“ 75^{o}

2y = 100^{o}

y = 100^{o}/2

y = 50^{o}

(ii) âˆ AOC + âˆ BOC = 180^{o} [The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their nonâ€“common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180^{o}]

2y + 5 + 3x = 180^{o}

3x + 2y = 175^{o}

Given If y = 35^{o}, then

3x + 2(35^{o}) = 175^{o}

3x + 70^{o} = 175^{o}

3x = 175^{0} â€“ 70^{o}

3x = 105^{o}

x = 105^{o}/3

x = 35^{o}

**23. In Fig. 24, write all pairs of adjacent angles and all the liner pairs.**

**Solution:**

(x + 10)^{o} + x^{o} + (x + 20)^{o} = 180^{o}[linear pair]

On rearranging we get

3x^{o} + 30^{o} = 180^{o}

3x^{o} = 180^{o} â€“ 30^{o}

3x^{o} = 150^{o}

x^{o} = 150^{o}/3

x^{o} = 50^{o}

Also given that

âˆ BOC = (x + 20)^{o}

= (50 + 20)^{o}

= 70^{o}

âˆ COD = 50^{o}

âˆ AOD = (x + 10)^{o}

= (50 + 10)^{o}

= 60^{o}

**25. How many pairs of adjacent angles are formed when two lines intersect in a point?**

3x^{o} + 3x^{o} = 180^{o}

6x^{o} = 180^{o}

x^{o} = 180^{o}/6

x^{o} = 30^{o}

**28. In Fig.28, AOC is a line, find x.**

** **

**Solution: **

From the figure we can write as

âˆ AOB + âˆ BOC = 180^{o} [linear pair]

Linear pair

2x + 70^{o} = 180^{o}

2x = 180^{o} â€“ 70^{o}

2x = 110^{o}

x = 110^{o}/2

x = 55^{o}

**29. In Fig. 29, POS is a line, find x.**

**Solution:**

From the figure we can write as angles of a straight line,

âˆ QOP + âˆ QOR + âˆ ROS = 180^{o}

60^{o} + 4x + 40^{o} = 180^{o}

On rearranging we get, 100^{o} + 4x = 180^{o}

4x = 180^{o} â€“ 100^{o}

4x = 80^{o}

x = 80^{o}/4

x = 20^{o}

**30. In Fig. 30, lines l _{1 }and l_{2} intersect at O, forming angles as shown in the figure. If x = 45^{o}, find the values of y, z and u.**

** **

**Solution:**

Given that, âˆ x = 45^{o}

From the figure we can write as

âˆ x = âˆ z = 45^{o}

Also from the figure, we have

âˆ y = âˆ u

From the property of linear pair we can write as

âˆ x + âˆ y + âˆ z + âˆ u = 360^{o}

45^{o} + 45^{o} + âˆ y + âˆ u = 360^{o}

90^{o} + âˆ y + âˆ u = 360^{o}

âˆ y + âˆ u = 360^{o} â€“ 90^{o}

âˆ y + âˆ u = 270^{o} (vertically opposite angles âˆ y = âˆ u)

2âˆ y = 270^{o}

âˆ y = 135^{o}

Therefore, âˆ y = âˆ u = 135^{o}

So, âˆ x = 45^{o}, âˆ y = 135^{o}, âˆ z = 45^{o} and âˆ u = 135^{o}

**31. In Fig. 31, three coplanar lines intersect at a point O, forming angles as shown in the figure. Find the values of x, y, z and u**

**Solution:**

Given that, âˆ x + âˆ y + âˆ z+ âˆ u + 50^{o} + 90^{o} = 360^{o}

Linear pair, âˆ x + 50^{o} + 90^{o} = 180^{o}

âˆ x + 140^{o} = 180^{o}

On rearranging we get

âˆ x = 180^{o} â€“ 140^{o}

âˆ x = 40^{o}

From the figure we can write as

âˆ x = âˆ u = 40^{o} are vertically opposite angles

âˆ z = 90^{o} is a vertically opposite angle

âˆ y = 50^{o} is a vertically opposite angle

Therefore, âˆ x = 40^{o}, âˆ y = 50^{o}, âˆ z = 90^{o} and âˆ u = 40^{o}

**32. In Fig. 32, find the values of x, y and z.**

**Solution:**

âˆ y = 25^{o} vertically opposite angle

From the figure we can write as

âˆ x = âˆ z are vertically opposite angles

âˆ x + âˆ y + âˆ z + 25^{o} = 360^{o}

âˆ x + âˆ z + 25^{o} + 25^{o} = 360^{o}

On rearranging we get,

âˆ x + âˆ z + 50^{o} = 360^{o}

âˆ x + âˆ z = 360^{o} â€“ 50^{o} [âˆ x = âˆ z]

2âˆ x = 310^{o}

âˆ x = 155^{o}

And, âˆ x = âˆ z = 155^{o}

Therefore, âˆ x = 155^{o}, âˆ y = 25^{o} and âˆ z = 155^{o}
