Question 1.

Observe the following pictures and find the other angles of the linear pair.

Solution:

(i) Given one angle 84°

∴ Other angle of the linear pair is 180° – 84° = 96°

(ii) One angle is given as 86°

Other angle of linear pair is 180° – 86° = 94°

(iii) Given one angle = 159°

Other angle of the linear pair = 180° – 159° = 21°

Question 1.

Observe the figure. There are two angles namely ∠PQR = 150° and ∠QPS = 30° Is all this pair of supplementary angles a linear pair? Discuss

Solution:

Given ∠PQR =150°

∠QPS = 30°

They are supplementary angles,

But they are not adjacent angles as they don’t have common vertex or common arm.

∴ They are not a linear pair.

Question 1.

What would happen to the angles if we add 3 or 4 or 5 rays on a line as given below?

Solution:

New adjacent angles are formed.

The new angles become smaller in measure. But their sum is 180° as it is a linear angle.

Question 1.

Can you justify the statement

∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COD + ∠DOE + ∠EOF + ∠FOA = 360°?

Solution:

We know that the sum of angles at a point is 360°

∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COD + ∠DOE + ∠EOF + ∠FOA = 360° as they are the sum of angles at the point ‘O’

Question 1.

Find the values of x.

Solution:

(i) m and n are parallel lines and l is the transversal.

When two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, each pair of interior angles that lie on the same side of the transversal are supplementary

(ii) m and n are parallel line and l is the transversal.
