Draw a ray EF with E as its initial point.

Place the protractor on EF. With the centre at E, mark a point D against the angle \(47^{circ}\) of the protractor.

Join DE. \(angle DEF=47^{circ}=angle ABC\) is the required angle.

QUESTION – 4: Draw a line segment AB = 6cm. Take a point C on AB such that AC = 4cm. From C, draw \(CDperp AB\)

Solution:

(c) \(10^{circ}\)

Number of spokes = 36

Measure of the angle of the wheel = Complete angle = \(360^{circ}\)

Angle between a pair of adjacent spokes = Measure of angle / Number of spokes = \(360^{circ}\) / 36 = \(10^{circ}\)
