(iv) 6 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm

(v) 3.5 cm, 3.5 cm, 3.5 cm

(vi) 9 cm, 4 cm, 5 cm

Solution:

(i) 8 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm

Sum of smaller sides = 6 cm + 4 cm = 10 cm > 8 cm, third side

∴ Triangle can be formed with this sides

None of the sides is equal.

∴ Yes, it is a scalene triangle

(ii) 10 cm, 8 cm, 5 cm.

Sum of two smaller sides = 8 cm + 5 cm = 13 cm > 10 cm, third side

∴ Triangle can be formed

None of the sides is equal.

∴ Yes, it is a scalene triangle

(iii) 6.2 cm, 1.3 cm, 3.5 cm.

Here sum of two smaller sides = 1.3 cm + 3.5 cm = 4.8 cm < 6.2 cm, third side.

∴ No, The triangle cannot be formed

(iv) 6 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm

Sum of two smaller sides = 4 cm + 6 cm = 10 cm > 6 cm, third side.

∴ Triangle can be formed. Also two sides are equal.

∴ Yes, it is an isosceles triangle.

(v) 3.5 cm, 3.5cm, 3.5cm.

Here sum of two sides = 3.5 cm + 3.5 cm = 7 cm > 3.5 cm (Third side)

∴ Triangle can be formed.

Also, all three sides are equal.

∴ Yes, it is an equilateral triangle.

(vi) 9 cm, 4 cm, 5 cm.

Sum of two smaller sides = 4 cm + 5 cm = 9 cm (the third side).

∴ No, The triangle cannot be formed.

Question 8.

Can a triangle be formed with the following angles? if yes, name the type of triangle.

(i) 60°, 60°, 60°

(ii) 90°, 55°, 35°

(iii) 60°, 40°, 42°

(iv) 60°, 90°, 90°

(v) 70°, 60°, 50°

(vi) 100°, 50°, 30°

Solution:

(i) 60°, 60°, 60°

Sum of three angles = 60° + 60° + 60° = 180°

Yes, a triangle can be formed.

∴ It is Acute angled triangle. [∵ all the angles < 90°]

(ii) 90°, 55°, 35°.

Sum of three angles = 90° + 55° + 55° = 180°

Yes, a triangle can be formed.

∴ It is a right-angled triangle, [∵ one angle is 90°]

(iii) 60°, 40°, 42°.

Sum of three angles = 60° + 40° + 42° = 142° ≠ 180°

No, The triangle cannot be formed.

(iv) 60°, 90°, 90°.

Sum of three angles = 60° + 90° + 90° = 240° ≠ 180°

∴ No, The triangle cannot be formed. [∵ one angle is > 90°]

(v) 70°, 60°, 50°.

Sum of three angles = 70° + 60° + 50° = 180°

Yes, A triangle can be formed.

∴ It is an acute-angled triangle.

(vi) 100°, 50°, 30°.

Sum of three angles = 100° + 50° + 30° = 180°

Yes, A triangle can be formed.

∴ It is an obtuse-angled triangle.

Question 9.

Two angles of the triangles are given. Find the third angle

(i) 80°, 60°

(ii) 75°, 35°

(iii) 52°, 68°

(iv) 50°, 90°

(v) 120°, 30°

(vi) 55°, 85°

Solution:

(i) 80°, 60°

Sum of the two angles = 80° + 60° = 140°

We know that sum of three angles of a triangle = 180°

Third angle = 180° – 140° = 40°

(ii) 75°, 35°

In the triangle sum of two angles = 75° + 35° = 110°

In a triangle sum of three angles = 180°

Third angle = 180° – 110° = 70°

(iii) 52°, 68°

In a triangle sum of 3 angles = 180°

Here sum of two given angles = 52° + 68° = 120°

Third angle = 180° – 120° = 60°

(iv) 50°, 90°

In a triangle sum of three angles = 180°

Sum of two given angles = 50° + 90° = 140°

Third angle = 180° – 140° = 40°

(v) 120°, 30°

In a triangle sum of three angles = 180°

Sum of two given angles = 120° + 30° = 150°

Third angle = 180° – 150° = 30°

(vi) 55°, 85°

In a triangle sum of three angles = 180°

Sum of two given angles = 55° + 85° = 140°

Third angle = 180° – 140° = 40°
