Question 1: In the given figure, AB is a mirror. PQ is the incident ray and QR, the reflected ray. If $\angle PQR=112^{\circ}$, find $\angle PQA$.

Ans:

We know that the angle of incidence = angle of reflection.

Hence, let $\angle PQA = \angle BQR = x^{o}$

Since, AQB is a straight line, we have

Therefore, $\angle PQA + \angle PQR + \angle BQR = 180^{o}$

x + 112 + x = 180o

2x = 68

X = 34o

Therefore, $\angle PQA = 34^{o}$

Question 2: If two straight lines intersect each other than prove that ray opposite to the bisector of one of the angles so formed bisect the vertically opposite angles.

Ans:

Let AB and CD be the two lines intersecting at a point O and let ray OE bisect $\angle AOC$ . Now draw a ray OF in the opposite direction of OE, such that EOF is a straight line.

Let $\angle COE = 1, \angle AOE = 2, \angle BOF = 3\ and\ \angle DOF = 4$

We know that vertically opposite angles are equal.

Therefore, $\angle 1 = \angle 4\ and\ \angle 2 = \angle 3$

But, $\angle 1 = \angle 2$ [Since OE bisects $\angle AOC$ ]

Therefore, $\angle 4 = \angle 3$

Hence, the ray opposite the bisector of one of the angles so formed bisects the vertically-opposite angle.

Question 3: Prove that the bisector of two adjacent supplementary angles include a right angle.

Ans: Let AOB denote a straight line and let $\angle AOC\ and\ \angle BOC$ be the supplementary angles.

Thus, we have:

$\angle AOC = x^{o}$ and $\angle BOC = (180 -x)^{o}$

Let OE bisects $\angle AOC$ and OF bisect $\angle BOC$

Then, we have:

$\angle AOE = \angle COE = \frac{1}{2} x^{o}$ and

$\angle BOF = \angle FOC = \frac{1}{2}(180 – x)^{o}$

Therefore,

$\angle COE + \angle FOC = \frac{1}{2} x + \frac{1}{2} (180 – x)^{o}$

$= \frac{1}{2}(x + 180 – x)$

$= \frac{1}{2}(180^{o})$

= 90o

Q4) In the adjoining figure $AB\left | \right |CD$ are cut by a traversal t at E and F respectively. If L1 = $70^{\circ}$ , find the measure of each of the remaining marked angles.

Ans.

We have, $\angle 1=70^{\circ}$ . Then,

$\angle 1=\angle 5$ [Corresponding angle ]

Therefore, $\angle 5=70^{\circ}$

$\angle 1=\angle 3$ [Vertically-opposite angles]

Therefore, $\angle 3=70^{\circ}$

$\angle 5=\angle 7$ [Vertically-opposite angles]

Therefore, $\angle 7=70^{\circ}$

$\angle 1+\angle 2=180^{\circ}$ [Since AFB is a straight line ]

Therefore, $70^{\circ}+\angle 2=180^{\circ}$

à $\angle 2=110^{\circ}$ [Vertically-opposite angles]

à $\angle 4=110^{\circ}$

$\angle 2=\angle 6$ [Corresponding angles]

à $\angle 6=110^{\circ}$

$\angle 6=\angle 8$ [Vertically-opposite angles]

à $\angle 8=110^{\circ}$

Therefore, $\angle 1=70^{\circ}$ , $\angle 2=110^{\circ}$ , $\angle 3=70^{\circ}$ , $\angle 4=110^{\circ}$ , $\angle 5=70^{\circ}$ , $\angle 6=110^{\circ}$ , $\angle 7=70^{\circ}$ and $\angle 8=110^{\circ}$ .

Q5) In the adjoining figure, $AB\left | \right | CD$ are cut by a transversal t at E and F respectively. If L2:L1 = 5:4 , find the measure of each one of the marked angles.

Given $AB\left | \right | CD$ and a line t intersects them at E and F forming angles

L1 + L2 + L3 + L4 + L5 + L6 + L7 + L8

Ans.

Given, L2:L1 = 5:4

Let L2 = 5y and L1 = 4y

But L2 + L1 = $180^{\circ}$ [Linear pair]

à 5y + 4y = $180^{\circ}$

à Y = $\frac{180^{\circ}}{9}=20^{\circ}$

Therefore, L2 = 5y = 5 x $20^{\circ}$ = $100^{\circ}$

And L1 = 4y = 4 x $20^{\circ}$ = $80^{\circ}$

But L1 = L3 [vertically opp. Angles]

Therefore, L3 = $80^{\circ}$

Similarly, Since L2 = L4 [vertically opp. Angles]

Therefore, L4 = $100^{\circ}$

Since, L1 = L5 [corresponding angles]

Therefore, L5 = $80^{\circ}$

Since, L4 = L6 [Alternate angles]

Therefore, L6 = $100^{\circ}$

Since, L3 = L7 [Corresponding angles]

Therefore, L7 = $80^{\circ}$

Since, L4 = L8 [Corresponding angles]

Therefore, L8 = $100^{\circ}$

Hence, L3 = $80^{\circ}$ ,L4 = $100^{\circ}$ , L5 = $80^{\circ}$ , L6 = $100^{\circ}$ , L7 = $80^{\circ}$ , L8 = $100^{\circ}$ .

Also,

Again, $EF\parallel CD$ and CE is the transversal.

$\angle CEF+\angle ECD=180^{\circ}$ [Consecutive Interior angles]

à $\angle CEF+124=180$

à $\angle CEF=56^{\circ}$

Or, x = 120

[Angles on the same side of a transversal line are supplementary]

Also, $PFQ\parallel CD$

$\angle PFQ=\angle FGD=r^{\circ}$ [Alternate angles]

And $\angle EFP=\angle EFG-\angle PFG=q^{\circ}-r^{\circ}$

Putting the value of $\angle EFP$ in equ. (i)

Q20) If two straight lines are perpendicular to the same line, prove that the lines are parallel to each other.

Ans:

Given: Two lines m and n are perpendicular to a given line l.

To Prove : $m\parallel n$

Proof : Since $m\perp l$

So, $\angle 1=90^{\circ}$

Again, Since $n\perp l$

$\angle 2=90^{\circ}$

therefore,$\angle 1=\angle 2=90^{\circ}$

But $\angle 1$ and $\angle 2$ are the corresponding angles made by the transversal l with lines m and n and they are proved to be equal.

Thus, $m\parallel n$
