**Geometry Exercise 4.1 Solutions : **

**Geometry Exercise 4.1 Solutions :**

**(1) Can 30°, 60° and 90° be the angles of a triangle**

**Solution : **

Given angles 30°, 60° and 90°.

Sum of the angles

= 30° + 60° + 90°

= 180°

∴ The given angles can form a triangle.

**(2) Can you draw a triangle with 25°, 65° and 80° as angles**

**Solution : **

Given, angles 25°, 65° and 80°.

Sum of the angles

= 25° + 65° + 80°

= 170° ≠ 180°

The given angles can not form a triangle.

**(3) In each of the following triangles, find the value of x.**

**Solution : **

**Figure – (i)**

In ΔEFG, ∠E = 80° and ∠F = 55°

Let ∠G = x

We know, ∠E + ∠F + ∠G = 180° …. (Angel sum property)

80° + 55° + x= 180°

135° + x = 180°

x = 180° – 135°

**∴** x = 45°

**Figure – (ii)**

In ΔMNO , ∠N = 96° and ∠O = 22°

Let ∠M = x

We know, ∠M + ∠N + ∠O = 180° …. (Angel sum property)

x + 96° + 22° = 180°

x + 118° = 180°

x = 180° – 118°

**∴** x = 62°

**Figure – (iii)**

In ΔXYZ , ∠X = 29° and ∠Y = 90°

Let ∠Z = (2x+1)

We know, ∠X + ∠Y + ∠Z = 180° …. (Angel sum property)

29° + 90° + 2x +1 = 180°

120° + 2x = 180°

2x = 180° – 120°

2x = 60

x = 60/2

**∴** x = 30

**Figure – (iv)**

In ΔJKL, ∠K = 112° , ∠L = 3x and ∠J = x

We know, ∠K + ∠L + ∠J = 180° …. (Angel sum property)

112° + 3x + x = 180

4x = 180 – 112

4x = 68

x = 68/4

**∴** x = 17

**Figure – (v)**

In ΔRST , ∠R = 72° , ∠S = 3x and

SR = RT = 4.5 cm

Thus, ∠S = ∠T = 3x … [Angles opposite to equal sides]

We know, ∠R + ∠S + ∠T = 180° …. (Angel sum property)

72 + 3x + 3x = 180

6x = 180 – 72

6x = 108

x = 108/6

**∴** x = 18

**Figure – (vi)**

In Δ XYZ, ∠X = 3x , ∠Y = 2x and ∠Z = 4x

We know, ∠X + ∠Y +∠Z = 180°

3x + 2x + 4x = 180

9x = 180

x = 180/9

**∴** x = 20

**Figure – (vii)**

In ΔTUV, ∠T = x-4 , ∠U = 90 and ∠V = 3x-2

We know, ∠T + ∠U + ∠V = 180

x-4 + 90 + 3x – 2 = 180

4x + 84 = 180

4x = 180 – 84

4x = 96

x = 96/4

**∴** x = 24

**Figure – (viii)**

In ΔONP, ∠O = 3x – 10, ∠N = x+31 and ∠P = 2x-3

We know, ∠O + ∠N + ∠P = 180

3x – 10 + x + 31 + 2x -3 = 180

6x + 18 = 180

6x = 180 – 18

6x = 162

x = 162/6

**∴** x = 27

**(4) Two line segments AD and BC intersect at O. Joining AB and DC we get two triangles, ****△****AOB and ****△****DOC as shown in the figure. Find the ****∠****A and ****∠****B**

**Solution : **

From fig, In ΔDOC, ∠ D = 70° and ∠C = 30°

We know, ∠DOC + ∠ODC + ∠OCD = 180°

∠DOC + 70° + 30° = 180°

∠DOC + 100° = 180°

∠DOC = 180° – 100° = 80°

Since, ∠DOC and ∠BOA are vertical opposite angel and it’s equal.

Thus, ∠BOA = 80°

Now, In ΔAOB, ∠BOA = 80°, ∠BAO= 3x and ∠OBA = 2x

We know, ∠BOA + ∠BAO + ∠OBA = 180°

80 + 3x + 2x = 180°

5x = 180 – 80

5x = 100

x = 100/5

x = 20

Therefore, ∠BAO= 3x = 3 × 20 = 60°

∠OBA = 2x = 2 × 20 = 40°

**(6) If the three angles of a triangle are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 4 , then find them.**

**Solution : **

Given, the three angles of a triangle are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 4

Let this angles are 3x , 5x and 4x.

Now, 3x + 5x + 4x = 180° ….( angel sum property )

12x = 180°

x = 180/12

x = 15

Thus, 3x = 3×15 = 45°

5x = 5 × 15 = 75°

4x = 4 × 15 = 60°

Hence, the angles are 45° , 75° and 60°

**(7) In ∆RST, ****∠****S is 10° greater than ****∠****R and ****∠****T is 5° less than ****∠****S, find the three angles of the triangle. **

**Solution : **

In ΔRST, ∠S is 10° greater than ∠R and ∠T is 5° less than ∠S.

Let ∠R be x.

Thus, ∠S = x + 10 and ∠T = x+10 – 5 = x + 5

Therefore,

∠R + ∠S + ∠T = 180°

x + x + 10 + x + 5 = 180°

3x + 15 = 180°

3x = 180 -15 = 165

x = 165/3

x = 55

Therefore, ∠R = x = 55°

∠S = x + 10 = 55 + 10 = 65°

∠T = x + 5 = 55 + 5 = 60°

**(8) In ∆ABC, if ****∠****B is 3 times ****∠****A and ****∠****C is 2 times ****∠****A, then find the angles**

**Solution : **

Given, In ΔABC, if ∠B is 3 times ∠A and ∠C is 2 times ∠A

Let ∠A = x, thus ∠B = 3x and ∠C = 2x .

Now, ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°

x + 3x + 2x = 180°

6x = 180°

x = 180/6

x = 30°

**∴** ∠A = x = 30°

**∴** ∠B = 3x = 3 × 30 = 90°

**∴** ∠C = 2x = 2 × 30 = 60°

**(9) In ∆XYZ, if ****∠****X : ****∠****Z is 5 : 4 and ****∠****Y=72°. find ****∠****X and ****∠****Z**

**Solution : **

Given, In ΔXYZ, if ∠X: ∠Z is 5 : 4 and ∠Y= 72°

Let ∠X = 5x and ∠Z = 4x

Now, ∠X + ∠Y + ∠Z = 180°

5x + 72 + 4x = 180

9x + 72 = 180

9x = 180 – 72

9x = 108

x = 108/9

x = 12

Therefore,

**∴** ∠X = 5x = 5 × 12 = 60°

**∴** ∠Z = 4x = 4 × 12 = 48°

**(10) In a right angled triangle ABC, ****∠****B is right angle, ****∠****A is x + 1 and ****∠****C is 2x + 5. find ****∠****A and ****∠****C**

**Solution : **

Given, In a right angled triangle ABC, ∠B is right angle

Thus, ∠B = 90, ∠ A = x+ 1 and ∠C = 2x +5

Now, ∠ A + ∠B + ∠C = 180

x + 1 + 90 + 2x + 5 = 180

3x + 96 = 180

3x = 180 – 96

3x = 84

x = 84/3

x = 28

Therefore,

∠ A = x+ 1 = 28 + 1 = 29°

∠C = 2x + 5 = 2*28 + 5 = 56 + 5 = 61°

**(11) In a right angled triangle MNO, ****∠****N = 90°, MO is extended to P. if ****∠****NOP = 128°, find the other two angles of ∆MNO.**

**Solution : **

Given, In a right angled triangle MNO, ∠N = 90°, MO is extended to P.

Thus, ∠NOP is external angle of ΔMNO

We know,

Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠NOP = ∠N + ∠M

128 = 90 + ∠M

∠M = 128 – 90

∠M = 38°

Now, ∠N + ∠M + ∠O = 180° …. (Angle sum property)

90° + 38° + ∠O = 180°

∠O = 180° – 128°

∠O = 52°

Hence, the other two angles of ΔMNO is 52° and 38°.

**(12) Find the value of x in each of the given triangles.**

**Solution : **

**Figure – (i)**

From fig, ∠ACB and ∠ LCB are linear pair angle

Thus, ∠ACB + ∠ LCB = 180°

∠ACB + 135° = 180° …. (Given, ∠LCB = 135° )

∠ACB = 180° – 135°

∠ACB = 45°

Since, ∠x is external angle of ΔABC

Thus, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

x = ∠ACB + ∠ABC

x = 45° + 65°

x = 110°

**Figure – (ii)**

From fig, ∠XAZ and ∠BAC are opposite angel and it’s equal.

Thus, ∠BAC = ∠XAZ = 8x+7 … (1)

Since, ∠ACY is external angle of ΔABC

Thus, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠ACY = ∠BAC + ∠ABC

120 = 8x+7 + 3x – 8

120 = 11x – 1

11x = 120 + 1

11x = 121

x = 121/11

x = 11°

**(13) In ∆LMN, MN is extended to O. if ****∠****MLN = 100 – x, ****∠****LMN = 2x and ****∠****LNO = 6x – 5, find the value of x**

**Solution : **

Given, In ΔLMN, MN is extended O.

Thus, ∠LNO is external angle of ΔLMN.

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠LNO = ∠LMN + ∠MLN

6x – 5 = 2x + 100 – x

6x – 2x + x = 100 + 5

5x = 105

x = 105/5

x = 21°

So, value of x is 21°

**(14) Using the given figure find the value of x.**

**Solution : **

From fig, ∠BEC is external angle of ΔCDE .

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠BEC = ∠ECD + ∠EDC

x = 50 + 60

x = 110°

∴ The value of x is 110°.

**(15) Using the diagram find the value of x.**

**Solution : **

Since in a diagram all sides of the triangle are equal thus this triangle is equilateral triangle.

We know angles of equilateral triangle is 60.

Also, x be a external angle of the triangle.

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

x = 60 + 60

x = 120°

**(1) In an isosceles triangle one angle is 76°. If the other two angles are equal find them.**

**Solution : **

Given, in an isosceles triangle one angle is 76°

Since, the other two angles are equal

Thus, x + x + 76 = 180 …. (Angel sum property)

2x = 180 – 76

2x = 104

x = 104/2

x = 52

Hence, the other two angles are 52°, 52°.

**(2) If two angles of a triangle are 46° each, how can you classify the triangle?**

**Solution : **

Let x, y and z be angles of triangles

According to question, x = y + z … (1)

We know,

x + y + z = 180

x + x = 180 (from, 1)

2x = 180

x = 180 /2

x = 90

Since, one of the angel is 90

Therefore, this triangle is right angle triangle.

**(4) If the exterior angle of a triangle is 140° and its interior opposite angles are equal, find all the interior angles of the triangle.**

**Solution : **

Let x, y and z be the interior angles of the triangle

Given, the exterior angle of a triangle is 140° and its interior opposite angles are equal

Supposed y and z are equal.

We know,

Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

140 = y + z

140 = y+y

2y = 140

y = 140/2 =70

Thus, z = y = 70

Now, x + y + z = 180 …( Angles sum property )

x + 70 + 70 = 180

x = 180 – 140

x = 40

Hence, angles of triangles are 40°, 70° and 70°.

∠CBD = 52° …. (1)

Also, ∠BDE is external angle of ΔBCD

Thus, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠BDE = ∠CBD + ∠BCD

x = 52° + 100°

x = 152°

Therefore, the value of ‘x’ is 152°

Thus, ∠D = ∠M = 60°,

∠N = ∠E = 45°

Now, ΔMNO, ∠M = 60°, ∠N = 45°

We know, ∠M + ∠N + ∠O = 180° … (Angle sum property)

60° + 45° + ∠O = 180°

∠O = 180° – 105°

∠O = 75°

**Challenge Problem Solutions : **

**(11) In given figure BD = BC, find the value of x.**

**Solution : **

From fig, In Δ BCD, BD = BC

Thus, ∠BDC = ∠BCD … (Opposite angel of equal sides) … (1)

Since, ∠BCX and ∠BCD are linear pair

Therefore, ∠BCX + ∠BCD = 180°

115° + ∠BCD = 180°

∠BCD = 180° – 115°

∠BCD = 65°

From 1, ∠BDC = 65°

Since, ∠BDC is external angle of ΔABD

Thus, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠BDC = ∠CBA + ∠BAC

65° = x + 35°

x = 65° – 35°

x = 30°

Therefore, The value of x is 30°.

**(12) In the given figure find the value of x.**

**Solution : **

From fig ∠JMK is external angle of ΔLMN

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠JMK = ∠JNM + ∠MLN

∠JMK = 26° + 30°

∠JMK = 56°

Also ∠LJK is external angle of ΔJKM

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠LJK = ∠JMK + ∠JKM

x = 56° + 58°

x = 114°

**(13) In the given figure find the values of x and y.**

**Solution : **

From fig, ∠XAB is an external angle of ΔABC.

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠XAB = ∠ABC + ∠ACB

62° = 28° + x

x = 62° – 28°

x = 34°

Now, In ΔABC

∠ABC + ∠ACB + ∠ BAC = 180° … (Angle sum property)

28° + 34° + y = 180°

y = 180° – 62°

y = 118°

Hence, the value of x and y is 34° and 118° resp.

**(14) In ΔDEF, ****∠****F = 48°, ****∠****E = 68° and bisector of ****∠****D meets FE at G. find ****∠****FGD**

**Solution : **

Given, In ΔDEF, ∠F = 48°, ∠E = 68°

Now, ∠FDE + ∠DFE + ∠DEF = 180°

∠FDE + 48° + 68° = 180°

∠FDE + 116° = 180°

∠FDE = 180° – 116°

∠FDE = 64°

Since, bisector of ∠D meets FE at G.

Thus, ∠GDE = 1/2∠FDE = 1/2 *64 = 32°

From fig, ∠DGF is an external angle of ΔDGE.

We know, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠DGF = ∠GDE +∠GDE

∠DGF = 32° + 68°

A∠DGF = 100°

**(15) In the figure find the value of x.**

**Solution : **

From fig, ∠UTP is an external angle of the ΔSTP.

Thus, ∠UTP = ∠TSP + ∠TPS

105° = 75° + ∠TPS

∠TPS = 105° – 75°

∠TPS = 30°

Also From fig,

∠TPS + ∠TPR + ∠RPQ = 180°

30° + 90° + ∠RPQ = 180°

∠RPQ = 180° – 120°

∠RPQ = 60° …. (1)

Since, ∠PRQ and ∠VRQ is a linear pair

Thus, ∠PRQ + ∠VRQ = 180°

∠PRQ + 145° = 180°

∠PRQ = 180° – 145 °

∠PRQ = 35° …. (2)

Now, ∠PQY is an external angle of ΔPRQ.

Thus, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠PQY = ∠PRQ + ∠RPQ

x = 35° + 60° (from 1 and 2)

x = 95°

**(16) From the given figure find the value of y**

**Solution : **

From fig, ∠YCX and ∠ACB are opposite angel and it’s equal.

∠ACB = ∠YCX =48°

Now, In ΔABC

∠ACB + ∠CAB + ∠CBA = 180° … (Angles sum property)

48° + 57° + ∠CBA = 180°

∠CBA = 180° – 105°

∠CBA = 75°

Also from fig,

∠CBA + ∠CBE + ∠EBD = 180°

75° + 65° + ∠EBD = 180°

∠EBD = 180° – 140°

∠EBD = 40°

Since, ∠BDZ is an external angle of ΔBED.

Thus, Exterior angle = sum of two interior opposite angles

∠BDZ = ∠BED + ∠EBD

y = 40° + 97°

y = 137°
