### Exercise 15A Page: 183

**1. In a Î”ABC, if âˆ A = 72 ^{o} and âˆ B = 63^{o}, find âˆ C.**

**Solution:-**

We know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}.

âˆ´ âˆ A + âˆ B + âˆ C = 180^{o}

= 72^{o}+ 63^{o}+ âˆ C = 180^{o}

= 135^{o} + âˆ C = 180^{o}

= âˆ C = 180^{o}– 135^{0}

= âˆ C = 45^{o}

Hence, the measures of âˆ C is 45^{o}.

**2. In a Î”DEF, if âˆ E = 105 ^{o} and âˆ F = 40^{o}, find âˆ D.**

**Solution:-**

We know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}.

âˆ´ âˆ D + âˆ E + âˆ F = 180^{o}

= âˆ D + 105^{o}+ 40^{o} = 180^{o}

= 145^{o} + âˆ D = 180^{o}

= âˆ D = 180^{o}– 145^{0}

= âˆ D = 35^{o}

Hence, the measures of âˆ D is 35^{o}.

**3. In a Î”XYZ, if âˆ X = 90 ^{o} and âˆ Z = 48^{o}, find âˆ Y.**

**Solution:-**

We know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}.

âˆ´ âˆ X + âˆ Y + âˆ Z = 180^{o}

= 90^{o} + âˆ Y + 48^{o} = 180^{o}

= 138^{o} + âˆ Y = 180^{o}

= âˆ Y = 180^{o}– 138^{0}

= âˆ Y = 42^{o}

Hence, the measures of âˆ Y is 42^{o}.

**4. Find the angles of a triangle which are in the ratio 4: 3: 2.**

**Solution:-**

Let the measures of the given angles of the triangles be (4x)^{o}, (3x)^{o }and (2x)^{o} respectively.

Then,

= 4x + 3x + 2x = 180^{o} â€¦ [âˆµsum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}]

= 9x = 180^{o}

= x = 180/9

= x = 20

So, the angle measures (4 Ã— 20)^{o}, (3 Ã— 20)^{o}, (2 Ã— 20)^{o},

i.e., 80^{o}, 60^{o}, 40^{o}.

Hence, the angles of the triangles are 80^{o}, 60^{o}, 40^{o}.

**5. One of the acute angles of right triangle is 36 ^{o}, find the other.**

**Solution:-**

Let the three angles be âˆ A, âˆ B, âˆ C

And,

âˆ A = 36^{o}

âˆ B = 90^{o}

^{o}]

âˆ C = x

Now,

= âˆ A + âˆ B + âˆ C = 180^{o} â€¦ [âˆµsum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}]

= 36^{o} + 90^{o} + âˆ C = 180^{o}

= 126^{o} + âˆ C = 180^{0}

= âˆ C = 180^{o} â€“ 126^{o}

= âˆ C = 54^{o}

Hence, the other angle is 54^{o}.

**6. The acute angle of a right triangle are in the ratio 2: 1. Find each of these angles.**

**Solution:-**

Let the three angles be âˆ A, âˆ B, âˆ C

And,

âˆ A = 2x^{o}

âˆ B = 1x^{o}

âˆ C = 90^{o}

^{o}]

Now,

= âˆ A + âˆ B + âˆ C = 180^{o} â€¦ [âˆµsum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}]

= 2x^{o} + x^{o} + 90^{o} = 180^{o}

= 3x^{o} = 180^{0}– 90^{o}

= 3x^{o} = 90^{o}

= x^{o} = 90^{o}/3

= x^{o} = 30

Now, substitute the value of x in the given angles.

âˆ A = 2x^{o} = 2 Ã— 30 = 60^{o}

âˆ B = 1x^{o}= 1 Ã— 60 = 30^{o}

Hence, the other angles are 60^{o} and 30^{o}.

**7. One of the angles of a triangle is 100 ^{o} and the other two angles are equal. Find each of the equal angles.**

**Solution:-**

Let the other two equal angles be x.

Then,

= x + x + 100^{o} = 180^{o} â€¦ [âˆµsum of the angles of a triangle is 180^{o}]

= 2x = 180^{o} â€“ 100^{o}

= 2x = 80^{o}

= x = 80^{o}/2

= x = 40^{o}

Hence, the other two equal angles are 40^{o} and 40^{o}.

Exercise 15B Page: 186

**1. In the figure given alongside, find the measure of âˆ ACD.**

**Solution:-**

In the given figure, side BC of Î”ABC is produced to D.

Consider the Î”ABC,

We know that the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its interior opposite angles.

âˆ´ âˆ ACD = âˆ ABC + âˆ BAC

âˆ ACD = 45^{o} + 75^{o}

âˆ ACD = 120^{o}

Hence, the measures of âˆ ACD is 120^{o}.

**2. In the figure given alongside, find the values of x and y.**

**Solution:-**

In the given figure, side BC of Î”ABC is produced to D.

Consider the Î”ABC,

We know that the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its interior opposite angles.

âˆ´ âˆ ABC + âˆ BAC = âˆ ACD

= 68^{o} + x = 130^{o}

= x = 130^{o} â€“ 68^{o}

= x = 62^{o}

Also, we know that the sum of all the angles of a triangles is 180^{o}.

âˆ´ x + y + 68^{o} = 180^{o}

= 62^{o} + y + 68^{o} = 180^{o}

= y + 130^{o} = 180^{o}

= y = 180^{o} â€“ 130^{o}

= y = 50^{o}

Hence, the value of x is 62^{o} and value of y is 50^{o}.

**3. In the figure given alongside, find the values of x and y.**

**Solution:-**

In the given figure, side BC of Î”ABC is produced to D.

Consider the Î”ABC,

We know that the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its interior opposite angles.

âˆ´ âˆ ABC + âˆ BAC = âˆ ACD

= x^{o} + 32^{o} = 65^{o}

= x = 65^{o} â€“ 32^{o}

= x = 33^{o}

Also, we know that the sum of all the angles of a triangles is 180^{o}.

âˆ´ A + B + C = 180^{o}

= 32^{o} + x^{o} + y^{o} = 180^{o}

= 32^{o} + 33^{o} + y^{o} = 180^{o}

= y + 65^{o} = 180^{o}

= y = 180^{o} â€“ 65^{o}

= y = 115^{o}

Hence, the value of x is 33^{o} and value of y is 115^{o}.

**4. An exterior angle of a triangle measures 110 ^{o} and its interior opposite angles are in the ratio 2: 3. Find the angles of the triangle.**

**Solution:-**

Let the given interior opposite angles be (2x)^{o} and (3x)^{o}.

We know that an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of its interior opposite angles.

âˆ´ 2x + 3x = 110^{o}

= 5x = 110

= x =110/5

= x = 22

âˆ´ âˆ A = 2x = 2 Ã— 22 = 44^{o}

âˆ B = 3x = 3 Ã— 22 = 66^{o}

But, âˆ A + âˆ B + âˆ C = 180^{o}

âˆ´ 44^{o} + 66^{o}+ âˆ C = 180^{o}

= 110 + âˆ C = 180^{o}

= âˆ C = 180 â€“ 110

= âˆ C = 70^{o}

âˆ´âˆ A = 44^{o}, âˆ B = 66^{o}, âˆ C = 70^{o}

Hence, it is possible to draw a triangle whose sides are 1cm, 1cm and 1cm.

**(ii). 2 cm, 3 cm, 4 cm **

**Solution:-**

Clearly, we have:

(2 + 3) > 4

(3 + 4) > 2

(2 + 4) > 3

Thus, the sum of any two of these numbers is greater than the third.

Hence, it is possible to draw a triangle whose sides are 2 cm, 3 cm and 4 cm.

**(iii). 7 cm, 8 cm, 15 cm **

**Solution:-**

Clearly, we have:

(7 + 8) = 15

**(iv). 3.4 cm, 2.1 cm, 5.3 cm **

**Solution:-**

Clearly, we have:

(3.4 + 2.1) > 5.3

(2.1 + 5.3) > 3.4

(3.4 + 5.3) > 2.1

Thus, the sum of any two of these numbers is greater than the third.

**(v). 6 cm, 7 cm, 14 cm **

**Solution:-**

Clearly, we have:

(6 + 7) < 14

Then, by Pythagoras theorem,

AC^{2} = AB^{2} + BC^{2}

AC^{2 }= 12^{2} + 9^{2}

AC^{2 }= 144 + 81

AC^{2} = 225

Sending power2 from LHS to RHS it becomes square root

BC^{2 }= (AC^{2} – AB^{2})

x^{2 }= (7.5^{2} â€“ 4.5^{2})

x^{2} = (56.25 â€“ 20.25)

x^{2} = 36

Sending power2 from LHS to RHS it becomes square root

x = âˆš(36)

x = 6 cm

âˆ´The length of other the side of a triangle is 6 cm.

**4. The two legs of a right triangle are equal and the square of its hypotenuse is 50. Find the length of its third side.**

**Solution:-**

c^{2 }= (a^{2} + b^{2})

c^{2 }= (6^{2} + 4.5^{2})

c^{2} = (36 + 20.25)

c^{2} = 56.25

Sending power2 from LHS to RHS it becomes square root

c = âˆš(56.25)

c = 7.5 cm

Then, âˆ A =?

We know that sum of the angle of three sides of triangle is equal to 180^{o}.

= âˆ A + âˆ B + âˆ C = 180^{o}

= âˆ A + 35^{o} + 55^{o} = 180^{o}

= âˆ A + 90^{o} = 180^{o}

= âˆ A = 180 â€“ 90

= âˆ A = 90^{o}

Also, we know that side opposite to the right angle is the hypotenuse.

âˆ´ BC^{2} = AB^{2} + AC^{2}

Hence, (iii) is true
