## Karnataka Board Class 8 Maths Chapter 3 Axioms, Postulates and Theorems Ex 3.2

I. Draw diagrams illustrating each of the following situations

Question a.

Three straight lines which do not pass through a fixed point.

Answer:

Question b.

A point and rays emanating from that point such that the angle between any two adjacent rays is an acute angle.

Answer:

Question c.

Two angles which are not adjacent angles, but still supplementary.

Answer:

Question d.

Three points in the plane which are equidistant from each other.

Answer:

Question 2.

Recognise the type of angles in the following figures.

Answer:

i. Adjacent angles

AOX is an acute angle and BOX is an obtuse angle

ii. Exterior angles

PRY and BOX are supplementary angles

iii. Reflex angle

Question 3.

Find the value of ‘x’ in each of the following diagrams.

(i) x + 2x = 180°

Answer:

3x = 180°

x = \(\frac{180^{\circ}}{3}\) = 60°

∴ x= 60°

(ii) ∠COB = 90°

∠COD +∠DOB = 90°

4x + x=90°

5x = 90

x = \(\frac { 90 }{ 5 }\)

x = 18°

∠AOC + ∠COB + ∠BOD + ∠DOA = 360° Complete angle

∠ AOC + x + x +∠ DOA = 360°

90 + 2x = 360° [∠ AOC +∠DOA = 90° ]

2x = 360 – 90

2x = 270

x = \(\frac { 270 }{ 2 }\)

x = 135°

(iv) ∠AOB = 180°

∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180°

x – y + x + y = 180°

2x = 180°

x = \(\frac { 180 }{ 2 }\)

x = 90°

(v) ∠COF= ∠EOD

∠COF = 3x

∴∠EOD = 3x

∠AOB = 180°

∠AOE + ∠EOD + ∠DOB = 180°

x + 3x + x + 30 = 180°

5x + 30 = 180°

5x = 180 – 30

5x = 150

x = \(\frac { 150 }{ 5 }\)

x = 30°

(vi)

EF is a straight line

∴ x + y = 180° ………..(i)

DC is a straight line

∴ y+ 65° = 180° …(ii)

From(i)and(ii)

x + y = y + 65°

x + y – y = 65°

x = 65°

Question 4.

which pair of angles are supplementary in the following diagram ? Are they supplementary rays ?

Answer:

∠AOB and ∠COD are supplementary angles.

∠COB and ∠AOD are supplementary angles.

There are no supplementary rays in the diagram.

Question 5.

Suppose two adjacent angles are supplementary. Show that if one of them is an obtuse angle, then the other angle must be acute.

Answer:

In the figure

∠APQ + ∠BPQ = 180° and ∠APQ is an obtuse angle.

To prove ∠BPQ < 90°

Construction: Draw a perpendicular SP at P

Proof: In the fig

∠ APS +∠SPQ + ∠QPS = 180°

90 + ∠SPQ + ∠QPB = 180°

∠SPQ + ∠QPB = 180-90

∠SPQ +∠QPB = 90

∴∠SPQ < 90° and ∠QPB < 90°

∴∠QPB is an acute angle

∴∠APQ is an obtuse angle
