__Exercise 8.1__

**Question 1: Write the complement of each of the following angles:**

** (i)20 ^{0} **

**(ii)35 ^{0}**

**(iii)90 ^{0} **

**(iv) 77 ^{0} **

**(v)30 ^{0}**

**Solution**:

**(i)** The sum of an angle and its complement = 90^{0}

Therefore, the complement of 20** ^{0 }**= 90

**– 20**

^{0}**= 70**

^{0}

^{0}**(ii)** The sum of an angle and its complement = 90^{0}

Therefore, the complement of 35° = 90° – 35° = 55

**(iii)** The sum of an angle and its complement = 90^{0}

Therefore, the complement of 90** ^{0}** = 90

**– 90**

^{0}**= 0**

^{0}

^{0}**(iv)** The sum of an angle and its complement = 90^{0}

Therefore, the complement of 77** ^{0}** = 90° – 77

**= 13**

^{0}

^{0}**(v)** The sum of an angle and its complement = 90^{0}

Therefore, the complement of 30** ^{0}** = 90

**– 30**

^{0}**= 60**

^{0}

^{0}**Question 2 : Write the supplement of each of the following angles:**

** (i) 54 ^{0}**

**(ii) 132 ^{0}**

** (iii) 138 ^{0}**

**Solution:**

**(i)** The sum of an angle and its supplement = 180** ^{0}**.

Therefore supplement of angle 54** ^{0}** = 180

**– 54**

^{0}**= 126**

^{0}

^{0}**(ii)** The sum of an angle and its supplement = 180** ^{0}**.

Therefore supplement of angle 132** ^{0}** = 180

**– 132**

^{0}**= 48**

^{0}

^{0}**(iii)** The sum of an angle and its supplement = 180** ^{0}**.

Therefore supplement of angle 138** ^{0 }**= 180

**– 138**

^{0 }**= 42**

^{0}

^{0}**Question 3: If an angle is 28 ^{0} less than its complement, find its measure?**

**Solution:**

Let the measure of any angle is ‘ a ‘ degrees

Thus, its complement will be (90 – a)^{ 0}

So, the required angle = Complement of a – 28

a = ( 90 – a ) – 28

2a = 62

a = 31

Hence, the angle measured is 31** ^{0}**.

**Question 4 : If an angle is 30° more than one half of its complement, find the measure of the angle?**

**Solution**:

Let an angle measured by ‘ a ‘ in degrees

Thus, its complement will be (90 – a)^{ 0}

Required Angle = 30** ^{0}** + complement/2

a = 30** ^{0}** + ( 90 – a )

**/ 2**

^{ 0}a + a/2 = 30** ^{0}** + 45

^{0}3a/2 = 75^{0}

a = 50^{0}

Therefore, the measure of required angle is 50** ^{0}**.

**Question 5 : Two supplementary angles are in the ratio 4:5. Find the angles?**

**Solution**:

Two supplementary angles are in the ratio 4:5.

Let us say, the angles are 4a and 5a (in degrees)

Since angle are supplementary angles;

Which implies, 4a + 5a = 180^{0}

9a = 180^{0}

a = 20^{0}

Therefore, 4a = 4 (20) = 80** ^{0 }**and

5(a) = 5 (20) = 100^{0}

Hence, required angles are 80° and 100** ^{0}**.

**Question 6 : Two supplementary angles differ by 48 ^{0}. Find the angles?**

**Solution**: Given: Two supplementary angles differ by 48** ^{0}**.

Consider a** ^{0}** be one angle then its supplementary angle will be equal to (180 – a)

^{ 0}According to the question;

(180 – a ) – x = 48

(180 – 48 ) = 2a

132 = 2a

132/2 = a

Or a = 66^{0}

Therefore, 180 – a = 114^{0}

Hence, the two angles are 66** ^{0}** and 114

**.**

^{0}**Question 7: An angle is equal to 8 times its complement. Determine its measure?**

**Solution:** Given: Required angle = 8 times of its complement

Consider a** ^{0}** be one angle then its complementary angle will be equal to (90 – a)

^{ 0}According to the question;

a = 8 times of its complement

a = 8 ( 90 – a )

a = 720 – 8a

a + 8a = 720

9a = 720

a = 80

Therefore, the required angle is 80** ^{0}**.

__Exercise 8.2__

**Question 1: In the below Fig. OA and OB are opposite rays:**

** (i) If x = 25 ^{0}, what is the value of y?**

**(ii) If y = 35 ^{0}, what is the value of x?**

** **

**Solution:**

**(i)** Given: x = 25

From figure: ∠AOC and ∠BOC form a linear pair

Which implies, ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180^{0}

From the figure, ∠AOC = 2y + 5 and ∠BOC = 3x

∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180^{0}

(2y + 5) + 3x = 180

(2y + 5) + 3 (25) = 180

2y + 5 + 75 = 180

2y + 80 = 180

2y = 100

y = 100/2 = 50

Therefore, y = 50^{0}_{ .}Answer!!

**(ii)** Given: y = 35^{0}

From figure: ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180° (Linear pair angles)

(2y + 5) + 3x = 180

(2(35) + 5) + 3x = 180

75 + 3x = 180

3x = 105

x = 35

Therefore, x = 35^{0}

**Question 2: In the below figure, write all pairs of adjacent angles and all the linear pairs.**

** **

**Solution**: From figure, pairs of adjacent angles are :

(∠AOC, ∠COB) ; (∠AOD, ∠BOD) ; (∠AOD, ∠COD) ; (∠BOC, ∠COD)

And Linear pair of angles are (∠AOD, ∠BOD) and (∠AOC, ∠BOC).

[As ∠AOD + ∠BOD = 180^{0}and ∠AOC+ ∠BOC = 180

^{0}.]

**Question 3 : In the given figure, find x. Further find ∠BOC , ∠COD and ∠AOD.**

**Solution:**

From figure, ∠AOD and ∠BOD form a linear pair,

Therefore, ∠AOD+ ∠BOD = 180^{0}

Also, ∠AOD + ∠BOC + ∠COD = 180^{0}

Given: ∠AOD = (x+10)^{ 0} , ∠COD = x^{0} and ∠BOC = (x + 20)^{ 0}

( x + 10 ) + x + ( x + 20 ) = 180

3x + 30 = 180

3x = 180 – 30

x = 150/3

x = 50^{0}

Now,

∠AOD=(x+10) =50 + 10 = 60

∠COD = x = 50

∠BOC = (x+20) = 50 + 20 = 70

Hence, ∠AOD=60^{0}, ∠COD=50^{0} and ∠BOC=70^{0}

**Question 4: In figure, rays OA, OB, OC, OD and OE have the common end point 0. Show that ∠AOB+∠BOC+∠COD+∠DOE+∠EOA=360°.**

**Solution:**

Given: Rays OA, OB, OC, OD and OE have the common endpoint O.

Draw an opposite ray OX to ray OA, which make a straight line AX.

From figure:

∠AOB and ∠BOX are linear pair angles, therefore,

∠AOB +∠BOX = 180^{0}

Or, ∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COX = 180^{0} —–—–(1)

Also,

∠AOE and ∠EOX are linear pair angles, therefore,

∠AOE+∠EOX =180°

Or, ∠AOE + ∠DOE + ∠DOX = 180^{0} —–(2)

By adding equations, (1) and (2), we get;

∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COF + ∠AOE + ∠DOF + ∠DOE = 180^{0} + 180^{0}

∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COD + ∠DOE + ∠EOA = 360^{0}

Hence Proved.

**Question 5 : In figure, ∠AOC and ∠BOC form a linear pair. If a – 2b = 30°, find a and b?**

**Solution:**

Given : ∠AOC and ∠BOC form a linear pair.

=> a + b = 180** ^{0 }** …..(1)

a – 2b = 30^{0} …(2) (given)

On subtracting equation (2) from (1), we get

a + b – a + 2b = 180 – 30

3b = 150

b = 150/3

b = 50^{0}

Since, a – 2b = 30^{0}

a – 2(50) = 30

a = 30 + 100

a = 130^{0}

Therefore, the values of a and b are 130° and 50° respectively.

**Question 6: How many pairs of adjacent angles are formed when two lines intersect at a point?**

**Solution**: Four pairs of adjacent angles are formed when two lines intersect each other at a single point.

For example, Let two lines AB and CD intersect at point O.

The 4 pair of adjacent angles are :

(∠AOD,∠DOB),(∠DOB,∠BOC),(∠COA, ∠AOD) and (∠BOC,∠COA).

**Question 7: How many pairs of adjacent angles, in all, can you name in figure given?**

**Solution**: Number of Pairs of adjacent angles, from the figure, are :

∠EOC and ∠DOC

∠EOD and ∠DOB

∠DOC and ∠COB

∠EOD and ∠DOA

∠DOC and ∠COA

∠BOC and ∠BOA

∠BOA and ∠BOD

∠BOA and ∠BOE

∠EOC and ∠COA

∠EOC and ∠COB

Hence, there are 10 pairs of adjacent angles.

**Question 8: In figure, determine the value of x.**

**Solution**:

The sum of all the angles around a point O is equal to 360°.

Therefore,

3x + 3x + 150 + x = 360^{0}

7x = 360^{0} – 150^{0}

7x = 210^{0}

x = 210/7

x = 30^{0}

Hence, the value of x is 30°.

**Question 9: In figure, AOC is a line, find x.**

**Solution:**

From the figure, ∠AOB and ∠BOC are linear pairs,

∠AOB +∠BOC =180°

70 + 2x = 180

2x = 180 – 70

2x = 110

x = 110/2

x = 55

Therefore, the value of x is 55^{0}.

**Question 10: In figure, POS is a line, find x.**

**Solution:**

From figure, ∠POQ and ∠QOS are linear pairs.

Therefore,

∠POQ + ∠QOS=180^{0}

∠POQ + ∠QOR+∠SOR=180^{0}

60^{0} + 4x +40^{0} = 180^{0}

4x = 180^{0} -100^{0}

4x = 80^{0}

x = 20^{0}

Hence, the value of x is 20^{0}.

__Exercise 8.3__

**Question 1: In figure, lines l_{1}, and l_{2} intersect at O, forming angles as shown in the figure. If x = 45. Find the values of y, z and u.**

**Solution**:

Given: x = 45^{0}

Since vertically opposite angles are equal, therefore z = x = 45^{0}

z and u are angles that are a linear pair, therefore, z + u = 180^{0}

Solve, z + u = 180^{0} , for u

u = 180^{0} – z

u = 180^{0} – 45

u = 135^{0}

Again, x and y angles are a linear pair.

x+ y = 180^{0}

y = 180^{0} – x

y =180^{0} – 45^{0}

y = 135^{0 }

Hence, remaining angles are y = 135^{0}, u = 135^{0} and z = 45^{0}.

**Question 2 : In figure, 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**:

(∠BOD, z); (∠DOF, y ) are pair of vertically opposite angles.

So, ∠BOD = z = 90^{0}

∠DOF = y = 50^{0}

Now, x + y + z = 180 [Linear pair] [AB is a straight line]

x + y + z = 180

x + 50 + 90 = 180

x = 180 – 140

x = 40

Hence values of x, y, z and u are 40^{0}, 50^{0}, 90^{0} and 40^{0} respectively.

**Question 3 : In figure, find the values of x, y and z.**

**Solution:**

From figure,

y = 25^{0} [Vertically opposite angles are equal]

Now ∠x + ∠y = 180^{0} [Linear pair of angles]

x = 180 – 25

x = 155

Also, z = x = 155 [Vertically opposite angles]

Answer: y = 25^{0} and z = 155^{0}

**Question 4 : In figure, find the value of x.**

**Solution:**

∠AOE = ∠BOF = 5x [Vertically opposite angles]

∠COA+∠AOE+∠EOD = 180^{0} [Linear pair]

3x + 5x + 2x = 180

10x = 180

x = 180/10

x = 18

The value of x = 18^{0}

**Question 5 : Prove that bisectors of a pair of vertically opposite angles are in the same straight line.**

**Solution:**

Lines AB and CD intersect at point O, such that

∠AOC = ∠BOD (vertically angles) …(1)

Also OP is the bisector of AOC and OQ is the bisector of BOD

To Prove: POQ is a straight line.

OP is the bisector of ∠AOC:

∠AOP = ∠COP …(2)

OQ is the bisector of ∠BOD:

∠BOQ = ∠QOD …(3)

Now,

Sum of the angles around a point is 360^{o}.

∠AOC + ∠BOD + ∠AOP + ∠COP + ∠BOQ + ∠QOD = 360^{0}

∠BOQ + ∠QOD + ∠DOA + ∠AOP + ∠POC + ∠COB = 360^{0}

2∠QOD + 2∠DOA + 2∠AOP = 360^{0} (Using (1), (2) and (3))

∠QOD + ∠DOA + ∠AOP = 180^{0}

POQ = 180^{0}

Which shows that, the bisectors of pair of vertically opposite angles are on the same straight line.

Hence Proved.

**Question 6 : If two straight lines intersect each other, prove that the ray opposite to the bisector of one of the angles thus formed bisects the vertically opposite angle.**

**Solution:** Given AB and CD are straight lines which intersect at O.

OP is the bisector of ∠ AOC.

To Prove : OQ is the bisector of ∠BOD

Proof :

AB, CD and PQ are straight lines which intersect in O.

Vertically opposite angles: ∠ AOP = ∠ BOQ

Vertically opposite angles: ∠ COP = ∠ DOQ

OP is the bisector of ∠ AOC : ∠ AOP = ∠ COP

Therefore, ∠BOQ = ∠ DOQ

Hence, OQ is the bisector of ∠BOD.

__Exercise 8.4__

**Question 1: In figure, AB, CD and ∠1 and ∠2 are in the ratio 3 : 2. Determine all angles from 1 to 8.**

**Solution: **

Let ∠1 = 3x and ∠2 = 2x

From figure: ∠1 and ∠2 are linear pair of angles

Therefore, ∠1 + ∠2 = 180

3x + 2x = 180

5x = 180

x = 180 / 5

=> x = 36

So, ∠1 = 3x = 108^{0} and ∠2 = 2x = 72^{0}

As we know, vertically opposite angles are equal.

Pairs of vertically opposite angles are:

(∠1 = ∠3); (∠2 = ∠4) ; (∠5, ∠7) and (∠6 , ∠8)

∠1 = ∠3 = 108°

∠2 = ∠4 = 72°

∠5 = ∠7

∠6 = ∠8

We also know, if a transversal intersects any parallel lines, then the corresponding angles are equal

∠1 = ∠5 = ∠7 = 108°

∠2 = ∠6 = ∠8 = 72°

Answer: ∠1 = 108°, ∠2 = 72°, ∠3 = 108°, ∠4 = 72°, ∠5 = 108°, ∠6 = 72°, ∠7 = 108° and ∠8 = 72°

**Question 2: In figure, I, m and n are parallel lines intersected by transversal p at X, Y and Z respectively. Find ∠1, ∠2 and ∠3.**

**Solution:** From figure:

∠Y = 120° [Vertical opposite angles]

∠3 + ∠Y = 180° [Linear pair angles theorem]

=> ∠3= 180 – 120

=> ∠3= 60°

Line l is parallel to line m,

∠1 = ∠3 [ Corresponding angles]

∠1 = 60°

Also, line m is parallel to line n,

∠2 = ∠Y [Alternate interior angles are equal]

∠2 = 120°

Answer: ∠1 = 60°, ∠2 = 120° and ∠3 = 60°.

**Question 3: In figure, AB || CD || EF and GH || KL. Find ∠HKL.**

**Solution:**

Extend LK to meet line GF at point P.

From figure, CD || GF, so, alternate angles are equal.

∠CHG =∠HGP = 60°

∠HGP =∠KPF = 60° [Corresponding angles of parallel lines are equal]

Hence, ∠KPG =180 – 60 = 120°

=> ∠GPK = ∠AKL= 120° [Corresponding angles of parallel lines are equal]

∠AKH = ∠KHD = 25° [alternate angles of parallel lines]

Therefore, ∠HKL = ∠AKH + ∠AKL = 25 + 120 = 145°

**Question 4: In figure, show that AB || EF.**

**Solution: **Produce EF to intersect AC at point N.

From figure, ∠BAC = 57° and

∠ACD = 22°+35° = 57°

Alternative angles of parallel lines are equal

=> BA || EF …..(1)

Sum of Co-interior angles of parallel lines is 180°

EF || CD

∠DCE + ∠CEF = 35 + 145 = 180° …(2)

From (1) and (2)

AB || EF

[Since, Lines parallel to the same line are parallel to each other]Hence Proved.

**Question 5 : In figure, if AB || CD and CD || EF, find ∠ACE.**

**Solution: **

Given: CD || EF

∠ FEC + ∠ECD = 180°

[Sum of co-interior angles is supplementary to each other]=> ∠ECD = 180° – 130° = 50°

Also, BA || CD

=> ∠BAC = ∠ACD = 70°

[Alternative angles of parallel lines are equal]But, ∠ACE + ∠ECD =70°

=> ∠ACE = 70° — 50° = 20°

** Question 6: In figure, PQ || AB and PR || BC. If ∠QPR = 102°, determine ∠ABC. Give reasons.**

**Solution:** Extend line AB to meet line PR at point G.

Given: PQ || AB,

∠QPR = ∠BGR =102°

[Corresponding angles of parallel lines are equal]And PR || BC,

∠RGB+ ∠CBG =180°

[Corresponding angles are supplementary]∠CBG = 180° – 102° = 78°

Since, ∠CBG = ∠ABC

=>∠ABC = 78°

**Question 7 : In figure, state which lines are parallel and why?**

**Solution: **

We know, If a transversal intersects two lines such that a pair of alternate interior angles are equal, then the two lines are parallel

From figure:

=> ∠EDC = ∠DCA = 100°

Lines DE and AC are intersected by a transversal DC such that the pair of alternate angles are equal.

So, DE || AC

**Question 8: In figure, if l||m, n || p and ∠1 = 85°, find ∠2.**

**Solution:**

Given: ∠1 = 85°

As we know, when a line cuts the parallel lines, the pair of alternate interior angles are equal.

=> ∠1 = ∠3 = 85°

Again, co-interior angles are supplementary, so

∠2 + ∠3 = 180°

∠2 + 55° =180°

∠2 = 180° – 85°

∠2 = 95°

**Question 9 : If two straight lines are perpendicular to the same line, prove that they are parallel to each other.**

**Solution: **

Let lines l and m are perpendicular to n, then

∠1= ∠2=90°

Since, lines l and m cut by a transversal line n and the corresponding angles are equal, which shows that, line l is parallel to line m.

**Question 10: Prove that if the two arms of an angle are perpendicular to the two arms of another angle, then the angles are either equal or supplementary.**

**Solution:** Let the angles be ∠ACB and ∠ABD

Let AC perpendicular to AB, and CD is perpendicular to BD.

To Prove : ∠ACD = ∠ABD OR ∠ACD + ∠ABD =180°

Proof :

In a quadrilateral,

∠A+ ∠C+ ∠D+ ∠B = 360°

[ Sum of angles of quadrilateral is 360° ]=> 180° + ∠C + ∠B = 360°

=> ∠C + ∠B = 360° –180°

Therefore, ∠ACD + ∠ABD = 180°

And ∠ABD = ∠ACD = 90°

Hence, angles are equal as well as supplementary.
