Rectilinear Figures Exercise 11(a) Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(i) In rectangle, diagonals are equal and bisect each other at ‘o’

So, AO = BO

∠OAB = ∠OBA = 18°

∠ABC = 90°

x = (90° – 18°) = 72°

(ii) In rectangle, PQRS, diagonals bisects each others at T

∠PTQ = 120° (Given)

∠TPQ + ∠TQP = 180° – 120°

= 60°

But, PT = QT

∠TPQ = ∠TQP = 60/2 = 30°

∠SRT = ∠TPQ

Her, So, b = 30°

and, a + b = 90°

a = 90° – 30° = 60°

(iii) From figure, Rhombus EF GH,

∠EFG = 140°

But ∠EFG + ∠FGH = 180°

= 140 + ∠FGH = 180°

= ∠FGH = 180° – 140°

= 40°

Diagonals bisects each other at right angles,

x = 1/2 × 40°

= 20°

(iv) Here, if the diagonals of rhombus bisect each other at right angles.

∠PLQ = 90°

In PLQ

∠PRQ + ∠LAP = 90°

= 24 6+ X = 90°

= X = 90° – 34 °

= 56°

AND, diagonals QS bisect ∠Q and ∠S

So, x = y

y = 56°

(v) From figure, square ABCD,

Diagonal AC intersect x DY

∠DXC = 112°

If the diagonals AC bisects the angles A and C,

Then ∠ACB = ∠XCY = 45°

∠CXY + ∠CXD = 120°

= ∠C × Y = 180° – 112°

= 68°

Now, in △CXY

= ∠C XY + ∠XYC + ∠XCY = 180°

= 68° + d + 45° = 180°

= d = 67°

(vi) In figure CDEF

DF is Diagonal, EN is line segment which intersects. DF at M such that,

∠EMF = 38, and Let, ∠MNE  = x

In ∠EMF = ∠DMN

∠MHN = 38

Diagonals DF bisects the ∠Q and ∠F

∠MDN = 45

In, △DMN

∠MNC = ∠DMN + ∠MDN

= x = 38 + 45

= 83

(vii) From Figure,

AB || DC and AD = BC

and, ∠A = a, ∠C = 75°

If ABCD is an isolates trapezium , then

∠A + C = 180°

= ∠B + ∠D = 180°

∠A + ∠C = 180°

= a + 75° = 180°

= a = (180 – 75°)

= 105°

(ix) ABCD is an isosceles

trapezium where AB || DC

AC = BD are diagonals

these intersects at ‘0’

= ∠0DC = ∠0CD = 180°

Now, in ∠0CD,

a + ∠0DC + ∠0CD

= a + 34 + 34 = 180°

= a + 180° – 68°

= 112°

and, ∠ADB = ∠ACB = 6

△0BC, a = 72° + B

= 112° – 72° = B

= ∠b = 40°

and ∠a = 112°

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Here, In a parallelogram ABCD,

∠A = ∠B = 1 : 5

Let, ∠A = x and ∠B = 5x

∴ ∠A + ∠B  = 180°

= x + 5x = 180°

= 6x = 180°

= x = 180/6 = 30°

∴ ∠A = 30°

= ∠3 = 5x

= 30° = 150°

∠C = ∠A and ∠3 = ∠D

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Let, smallest angle is = x

and other greatest = (2x – 20°)

x + 2x – 20 = 180°

= 3x = 180° + 20°

= x = 20/3°

smallest angle 200/3

Now, other greatest angle

= 2 × 200/3° – 20

= 400/3 – 20

= 400 – 60/3

= 340/3

= 113 1/3°

Therefore,  the angles are, 200/3°, 200/3°, 113 1/3°, 113 1/3°

Question no – (4)

Solution : Here, ABCD is a rhombus

∠A = 50° Diagonal AC and BD

bisect at point ‘0’

∠AOB = 90°

If the diagonal bisect the opposite angles.

∠0AB = 50°/2 = 25°

∠0BA + (90 + 25) = 180°

= ∠0BA = 180° – 115°

= 65°

Therefore, the angles are, 25°, 65°, 90°

Question no – (5)

Solution : In ABCD rectangle, AC and BD diagonals are bisect at point ‘P’

∠ABD = 50°

In △APB, AP = BP

= ∠PAB = ∠PBA

∠APB = 180° – (50° + 50°)

= 180 – 100°

= 80°

∠CPP = ∠APD …(opposite angles)

∠CPD = 80°

Question no – (6)

Solution : Here, In parallelogram, ABCD,

Let, ∠B = x

and, ∠A = 2/3 x

= ∠A + ∠B = 180°

2/3x + x = 180°

= 2x + 3x/3 = 180°

= x = 3 × 180/5

= 108°

∠B = 108°

Question no – (8)

Solution : The diagonal of rhombus if ABCD bisect each other,

= AO = OC = 24/2 = 12 cm

= BO = OD = 18/2 = 9 cm

and, ∠AOB = 90

In △AOB

AB2 = AO2 + BO2

= (12)2 + (9)2

= 144 + 81

= 225

AB = 15

Therefore, Side AB = BC = CD = DA = 15 cm.

Question no – (9)

Solution : In rhombus ABCD, AC and BD are diagonals

Both interest at right angles

AO = OC = 8/2 = 4 cm and BO = OD

∠AOB = 90

Now, in AOB,

AB2 = AO2 + BO2

= (5)2 = 42 + B02

= 302 = 25 – 16

= 9

= BO = 3

BD = 2 × BO

= 2 × 3

= 6 cm

Area rhombus,

= 8 × 6/2

= 24 CM2

Question no – (10)

Solution : PORS is a rhombus

= In rhombus PQRS

= PQ = 3 cm

SL = 2.5 cm

Diagonals bisect at point ‘0’

(i) If it is given that PQ = 3c, calculate the perimeter of PORS.

= Perimeter,

= 4 × 3

= 12 cm

(ii) If the height of the rhombus is 2.5 cm, calculate the area.

= Area of PQRS

= (3 × 2.5) cm2

= 7.5 cm2

(iii) If the diagonals cut at O, state the size of the angle POQ in degrees. (ICSE)

= If the diagonals bisect each other at right angle,

∠POQ = 90°

Question no – (12)

Solution :

Here, In figure, EFGH is isosceles trapezium

∴ EH = FG

and, ∠HEF = ∠GFE

= 2y2 – 25 = y2 + 24

= y2 = 24 + 45

= 49

= y = – 7

∴ y = 7 and, y = – 7

Question no – (13)

Solution :

In rhombus PQRS, PR and QS are diagonals which bisect at point ‘0’

∠SRT = 152°

∠PRS + ∠SRT = 180°

= ∠PRS = 180° – ∠SRT

= 180° – 152°

= 28°

∠SPQ = ∠SRQ = 2∠PRS

= 2 × 28°

= 56°

But here,

∠PQR + ∠SRQ = 180°

= ∠PQR = 180° – ∠SRQ

= 180° – 56°

= 124°

x = 1/2 ∠PQR

= 1/2 × 124°

= 62°

x = 62°

and, y = 92°

= z = 28°

Question no – (15)

Solution :

Here, ABCD is square and EBC is an equilateral triangle. ED is Join.

In ECD, CD = CE

∠CED = ∠CDE

But ∠DCE = ∠DCB + ∠BCE

= 90° + 60°

= 150°

So, ∠CED + ∠CDE = 180° – 150°

= 30°

2 ∠CED = 30°

= ∠CED = 30/2 = 15°

and, ∠BED = 60° – 15°

= 45°

Question no – (16)

Solution :

ABCD is square and ABO is an equilateral triangle.

= 90 – 60

= 30

∠AOD = 150/2

= 75

Similarly, In OBC,

∠BOC = 75°

and, ∠DOC + ∠AOD + ∠BOC + ∠AOB = 360°

= ∠DOC + 75° + 75° + 60° = 360°

= ∠DOC = 360° – 210°

= 150°
