Solution:

Three (3)

Question 4.

When do you say two angles are adjacent?

Solution:

Two angles are said to be adjacent angles if they have a common vertex and a common side.

Question 5.

Let be a segment with C and D between them such that the order of points on the segment is A, C, D, B suppose AD = BC prove that AC = DB

Solution:

AD = BC [data]

AD – CD = BC – CD [Axiom 3]

AC = DB [In the fig AC – CD = AC , BC – CD = DB]

Question 6.

Let and be two straight lines intersecting at O. Let be the bisector of ∠BOD. Draw between and such that ⊥ prove that bisects ∠DOA .

Solution:

Construction: Produce [/latex] such that to A point Z such that [/latex] such that .is between [/latex] such that and [/latex] such that

Proof : ∠AOZ = ∠BOX [vertically opposite angles]

∠BOX = ∠POX [ bisects ∠DOB]

∴ ∠AOZ = ∠DOX [Axiom 1] … (i)

[ZOY = [YOX r=90°] … (ii)

(ii) – (i) ∠ZOY – ∠AOZ = ∠YOX – ∠DOX ∠AOY = ∠YOD [Axiom 3]

∴ [/latex] such that bisects ∠AOD

Question 7.

Let and be two parallel lines and be a transversal. Let intersect in L. Suppose the bisector of ∠ALP intersect CD in R and the bisector of ∠PLB intersect CDin S prove that ∠LRS + ∠RSL = 90°

Solution:

∠ALP + ∠BLP = 180° ∠Linear pair]

∠ALP + ∠BLP = 180°

[Multiplying by ]

∠ELP + ∠FLP = 90° [∴ and are bisectors of ∠ALP and ∠BLP ]

∠ELF = 90°

[SLR = ∠ELF = 90°

[vertically opposite angles]

In ∆ SLR, ∠SLR + ∠LRS + ∠RSL = 180° [sum of the angles of the triangle is 180° ]

90 + ∠LRS + ∠RSL = 180°

∠LRS + ∠SL = 180 – 90

∠LRS + [RSL = 90°

Question 8.

In the adjoining figure and are parallel lines. The transversals and intersect at U on the line . Given ∠DWU = 110° and ∠CVP = 70° find the measure of ∠QUS.

Solution:

∠ AUV – ∠CVP = 70°

[corresponding angles]

∠QUB – ∠AUV = 70° [vertically opposite angles]

∠BUW + ∠DWU = 180° [Interior angles on the same side of transversal]

∠BUW + 110°= 180°

∠BUW = 180-110° = 70°

∠BUW = ∠AUS= 70° [vertically opposite angles]

∠AUS + ∠SUQ + ∠QUB = 180° ∠AUB is a straight angle]

70 + ∠SUQ + 70 = 180°

∠SUQ + 140° = 180°

∠SUQ = 180° – 140°

∠SUQ = 40°

Question 9.

What is the angle between the hours hand and minutes hand of a clock at (i) 1.40 hours (ii) 2.15 hours [use 1° = 60 minutes]

Solution:

i. 1.40 hours – 190°

ii. 2.15 hours – 22° 30′

Question 10.

How much would hour’s hand have moved from its position at 12 noon when the time is 4.24 p.m?

Solution:

144°

Question 11.

Let be a line segment and let C be the midpoint of Extend AB to D such that B lies between A and D. Prove that AD + BD = 2CD

Solution:

AD + BD = 2CD L.H.S – AD + BD

= AC + CB + BD + BD [∵ AD = AC + CB + BD]

= CB + CB + BD + BD

[∴ AC = CB]

= CB + BD + CB + BD

= CD + CD

= 2CD = RHS

∴ AD + B D = 2CD

Question 12.

Let and be two lines . intersecting at a point O. Let be a ray bisecting [BOD. Prove that the extension of to the left of O bisects ∠AOC.

Solution:

∠DOX = ∠BOX [ ∵ bisects ∠BOD]

∠DOX =∠COY [vertically opposite angles] ….(i)

∠BOX = ∠AOY

From (i) and (ii)

[vertically opposite] …(ii)

∠AQY – ∠COY [Axiom 1]

∴ bisects ∠AOC

A, O and B are collinear.

Question 16.

In the adjoining figure || . Prove that ∠ABC – [DCB + [CDE = 180°

Solution:

Construction: Through C draw ||

Proof : ∠ABC + ∠BCX = 180° [sum of interior angles on the same side of trnasversal]

∴ ∠BCX = 180 – ∠ABC

∠CDE + ∠DCY – 180° [sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal]

∴ ∠DCY = 180° – ∠CDE

∠BCX + ∠BCD + ∠DCY = 180° [∵ XCY is straight angle]

180 – ∠ABC + ∠BCD + 180 – ∠CDE = 180° [By substituting]

360 – ∠ABC + ∠BCD – ∠CDE – 180°

360 – 180 – ∠ABC – ∠BCD + CDE

180° = ∠ABC – ∠BCD + ∠CDE

or

∠ABC – ∠BCD + ∠CDE = 180°
