Properties of Triangles Exercise 14.1 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solutions :

(a) Yes, it form a triangle.

(b) Yes, it form a triangle.

(c) No, it not form triangle.

(d) Yes, it form a triangle.

(e) No, it not form a triangle.

(f) Yes, it form a triangle.

Question no – (2)

Solutions :

(a) (25° + 75° + 80°)

= 180°

yes, it form a triangle.

(b) (80° + 80° + 30°)

= 190°

No, it is not form a triangle.

(c) (20° + 60° + 100°)

= 180°

Yes, it form a triangle.

(d) (40° + 110° + 30°)

= 180°

Yes, it form a triangle.

(e) (140° + 50° + 10°)

= 180°

Yes, it form a triangle.

(f) (80° + 70° + 30°)

= 180°

Yes, it form a triangle.

(g) (55° + 35° + 90°)

= 180°

Yes, it form a triangle.

(h) (62° + 38° + 80°)

= 180°

Yes, it form a triangle.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

∠C = 180° – (75° + 55°)

= 180° – 130°

= 50°

Therefore, the measure of ∠C will be 50°

Question no – (4)

Solution :

ΔRST,

∠R = 80°

(180° – 80°) =  100°/2

= 50°

So, ∠S = ∠T = 50°

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Let, angles 4x, 5x, 6x

4x + 5x  + 6x =  180°

= 15x = 180 °

= x = 180/15

= x = 12°

4x = (4 × 12°) = 48°

5x = (5 × 12°) = 60°

6x = (6 × 12°) = 72°

Hence, The measures of each angle will be 48°, 60° and 72 °

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Let, other angle 3x and 2x

80 + 3x + 2x =  180°

= 65x =  180° – 80°

= x = 100°/5

= x = 20°

(3 × 20°) = 60°

(2 × 20°) = 40°

Thus, the angles will be 60° and 40°.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Each angle be 50°, 50°

And, (180° – (50 + 50)°

= 180° – 100°

= 80°

Therefore, the measures of each angle will be 80°.

Question no – (8)

Solution :

Let, angle 3x and 6x

3x + 6x + 90° = 180°

= 9x = 180° – 90°

= x = 90/9

= x = 10°

Angles be (3 × 10) = 30°

And, (6 × 10) = 60°

Therefore, the angles will be 30°  and 60°

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Isosceles right angle triangle,

= 90° and other x = x

x + x  + 90° = 180°

= 2x =  180° – 90°

= x = 90/2

= x = 45°

45°, 45°, 90°

Therefore, the measures of the angles will be 45°,  45°, 90°

Question no – (10)

Solution :

As we know that,

Equilateral triangle = all side are equal,

Let, angle be = x

x + x + x =  180°

= 3x = 180°

= x = 180°/3

= x = 60°

Therefore, the measures of an equilateral triangle will be 60°

Properties of Triangles Exercise 14.2 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solutions :

(a) 9 cm, 40 cm, 41 cm

92 + 402

= 81 + 1600

= 1681

And, 412 = 1681

412 = 92 + 402

So, yes, it form a right angle triangle.

(b) 6ft, 8ft, 10ft

62 + 82

=  36 + 64

= 100

And, 102 = 100

6+ 82 = 102

So, it form a right angled triangle

(c) 14 m, 40, 50m

142 = 196

And, 402 + 502

= 1600 + 2500

= √4100

This is not equal

So, it will not form a right angled triangle.

Question no – (2)

Solutions  :

(a) Third side,

= √132 – 52

= √169 – 25

= √ 144

= 12 cm

(b) Hypotenuse,

= √242 + 102

= √5676 + 100

= √676

= 26 cm

(c) Another side,

= √502 – 482

= √2500 – 2304

= √196

= 14 cm

(d) Hypotenuse,

= √18+ 802

= √324 + 6400

= √6724

= 82 cm.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Distance, = √122 + 92

= √144 + 81

= √ 255

= 15 km

Therefore, he is 15 km far from his starting point.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Distance ground does the ladder touch building.

= √292 – 212

= √841 – 441

= √ 400

= 20ft.

Therefore, 20ft above, the ladder touch the building.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Width, = √202 – 122

= √400 -144

= √256

=  16 ft

Therefore, the width of the carpet will be 16ft.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Height, = √4– 22

= √16 – 4

= √12 cm

Therefore, the height of the equilateral triangle will be 12 cm.

Question no – 7

Solution :

Length of diagonal,

= √152 + 82

= √289

= 17 m

Therefore, the length of the diagonal of the house will be 17 m.
