(b) 160°
(c) 200°
(d) 80°
Solution:
(d) 80° Question 1.
In the figure find x° and y°.
Solution:
∠ACD = ∠A + ∠B
(An exterior angle of a triangle is sum of its interior opposite angles)
120° = 50° + x°
x° = 120° – 50°
= 70°
In the triangle ABC ∠A + ∠B + ∠ACB = 180° (Sum of the angles of a Δ)
50° + x + ∠ACB = 180°
50° + 70° + ∠ACB = 180°
∠ACB = 180° – 120°
y = 60°
(OR)
∠ACD + ∠ACB = 180° (Angles of a linear pair)
∠ACB = 180° – 120°
= 60°
The value of x = 70° and y = 60°. Question 2.
The angles of quadrilateral are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 9 : 13. Find all the angles of the quadrilateral.
Solution:
Let the angles of the quadrilateral be 3x, 5x, 9x and 13x.
Sum of all the angles of quadrilateral = 360°.
3x + 5x + 9x + 13x = 360°
30x = 360°
x = $$\frac{360°}{30}$$
= 12°
3x = 3 × 12 = 36°
5x = 5 × 12 = 60°
9x = 9 × 12 = 108°
13x = 13 × 12 = 156°
The required angles of quadrilateral are 36°, 60°, 108° and 156°.

Question 3.
Diagonal AC of a parallelogram ABCD bisects ∠A. Show that (i) it bisects ∠C also
(ii) ABCD is a rhombus.
Solution:
We have a parallelogram ABCD in which diagonals AC bisect ∠A.
∠DAC = ∠BAC
(i) To prove that AC bisects ∠C
∴ ABCD is a parallelogram ∴ AB || DC and AC is a transversal
∴ ∠1 = ∠3 (Alternate interior angle) …….(1)
Also BC || AD and AC is a transversal
∴ ∠2 = ∠4 (Alternate interior angle) …….(2)
But AC bisects ∠A
∴ ∠1 = ∠2 ……… (3)
From (1), (2) and (3) we get
∠3 = ∠4
∴ AC bisects ∠C. (ii) To prove that ABCD is a rhombus.
In ΔABC, we have ∠1 = ∠4 [∴ ∠ 1 = ∠2 = ∠4]
∴ BC = AB (side opposite to equal angles are equal) ……..(4)
Similarly AD = DC …….. (5)
But ABCD is a parallelogram AB = DC (Opposite sides of a parallelogram) ………(6)
From (4), (5) and (6) we have AB = BC = CD = DA.
Thus ABCD is a rhombus.

Question 4.
ABCD is a parallelogram and AP and CQ are perpendiculars from vertex A and C on diagonal BD.
Show that (i) ΔAPB ≅ ΔCQD
(ii) AP = CQ.
Solution:
(i) In ΔAPB and ΔCQD we have
∠APB = ∠CQD (90° each)
AB = CD (opposite sides of parallelogram ABCD)
∠ABP = ∠CDQ (AB || CD and AD is a transversal)
Using ASA congruency we have,
ΔAPB ≅ ΔCQD

(ii) Since ΔAPB ≅ ΔCQD
∴ Their corresponding parts are equal.
∴ AP = CQ. Question 5.
ABCD is a rectangle and P, Q, R and S are the mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD and DA respectively. Show that the quadrilateral PQRS is a rhombus. Solution:
In rectangle ABCD, P is the mid-point of AB.
Q is the mid-point of BC. R is the mid-point of CD.
S is the mid-point of DA. AC is the diagonal.
Now in ΔABC,
PQ = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ AC and PQ || AC ……. (1)
Similarly in ΔACD,
SR = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ AC and SR || AC ……. (2)
From (1) and (2) we get,
PQ = SR and PQ || SR
Similarly by joining BD, we have
PS = QR and PS || QR
i.e. Both pairs of opposite sides of quadrilateral PQRS are equal and parallel.
∴ PQRS is a parallelogram. Question 6.
In the figure A, B and C are three points on a circle with centre O such that ∠BOC = 30° and ∠AOB = 60°. If D is a point on the circle other than the arc ABC, find ∠ADC.
Solution: O is the centre of the circle. ∠AOB = 60° and ∠BOC = 30°
Sum of all the angles of quadrilateral = 360°.
∠AOB + ∠BOC = ∠AOC
∴ ∠AOC = 30° + 60°
= 90°
∠ADC = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 90°
= 45°

Question 7.
In the given figure A, B, C and D are four points on a circle, AC and BD intersect at a point E such that ∠BEC = 130° and ∠ECD = 20°. Find ∠BAC.
Solution:
In ΔCDE, Exterior ∠BEC = Sum of interior opposite angle
130° = ∠EDC + ∠ECD
130° = ∠EDC + 20°
130° – 20° = ∠EDC
110° = ∠EDC
∴ ∠BAC = ∠BDC = 110° (Both the triangles are standing on the same base)
∠BAC = 110° Question 8.
In the given figure KLMN is a cyclic quadrilateral. KD is the tangent at K. If ∠N is a diameter ∠NLK = 40° and ∠LNM = 50°. Find ∠MLN and ∠DKL. Solution:
LN is a diameter
∠LMN = ∠LKN = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)
∴ ∠MLN = 90° – 50°
= 40°
∠LNK = 90° – 40°
= 50°
∠DKL = ∠LKN = 50° (angles in the alternate segment)
∴ ∠DKL = 50°
∠MLN = 40° and ∠DKL = 50°

Question 9.
In the given figure ∠PQR = 100°, where P, Q and R are points on a circle with centre ‘O’. Find ∠OPR. Solution:
∠PQR is the angle subtended by the chord PR in the minor segment.
reflex ∠POR = 2∠PQR
= 2 × 100°
= 200°
Now ∠POR + reflex ∠POR = 360°
∠POR + 200° = 360°
∠POR = 360° – 200°
= 160°
From the given diagram, POR is an isosceles triangle (∴ PO = OR = radii)
∴ ∠OPR = ∠ORP (angles opposite to equal sides)
In ΔOPR,
∠OPR + ∠ORP + ∠POR = 180°
∠OPR + ∠OPR + 160° = 180°
2∠OPR = 180° – 160°
2∠OPR = 20°
∠OPR = $$\frac{20°}{2}$$
= 10°
∴ ∠OPR = 10° Question 10.
AB and CD are two parallel chords of a circle which are on either sides of the centre such that AB = 10 cm and CD = 24 cm. Find the radius if the distance between AB and CD is 17 cm.
Solution: Given AB = 10 cm, CD = 24 cm and PQ = 17 cm.
PC = PD = $$\frac{24}{2}$$
= 12 cm
AQ = QB = $$\frac{10}{2}$$
= 5 cm
Let OP be x; OQ = (17 – x)
In the ΔOPC,
OC² = OP² + PC²
= x² + 12²
In the ΔOAQ,
OA² = AQ² + QO²
= 5² + (17 – x)²
= 25 + 289 + x² – 34x
= 314 + x² – 34x
But OA² = OC²
314 + x² – 34x = x² + 144
-34x = 144 – 314
-34x = -170
34x = 170
x = $$\frac{170}{34}$$
= $$\frac{10}{2}$$
= 5
We know,
OC² = x²+ 144
= 5² + 144
= 25 + 144
OC² = 169
But OC = $$\sqrt{169}$$
= 13
Radius of the circle = 13 cm
= x² + 144 Scroll to Top
