**Exercise 6.1**

**Question 1**

In figure, lines AB and CD intersect at 0. If ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° and ∠BOD = 40°, find ∠BOE and reflex ∠COE.

In figure, lines AB and CD intersect at 0. If ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° and ∠BOD = 40°, find ∠BOE and reflex ∠COE.

Solution:

Since AB is a straight line,

∴ ∠AOC + ∠COE + ∠EOB = 180°

or (∠AOC + ∠BOE) + ∠COE = 180° or 70° + ∠COE = 180° [ ∵∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° (Given)]

or ∠COE = 180° – 70° = 110°

∴ Reflex ∠COE = 360° – 110° = 250°

Also, AB and CD intersect at O.

∴∠COA = ∠BOD [Vertically opposite angles]

But ∠BOD = 40° [Given]

∴ ∠COA = 40°

Also, ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70°

∴ 40° + ∠BOE = 70° or ∠BOE = 70° -40° = 30°

Thus, ∠BOE = 30° and reflex ∠COE = 250°.

∴ ∠AOC + ∠COE + ∠EOB = 180°

or (∠AOC + ∠BOE) + ∠COE = 180° or 70° + ∠COE = 180° [ ∵∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° (Given)]

or ∠COE = 180° – 70° = 110°

∴ Reflex ∠COE = 360° – 110° = 250°

Also, AB and CD intersect at O.

∴∠COA = ∠BOD [Vertically opposite angles]

But ∠BOD = 40° [Given]

∴ ∠COA = 40°

Also, ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70°

∴ 40° + ∠BOE = 70° or ∠BOE = 70° -40° = 30°

Thus, ∠BOE = 30° and reflex ∠COE = 250°.

**Question 2.**

In figure, lines XY and MN intersect at 0. If ∠POY = 90° , and a : b = 2 : 3. find c.In figure, lines XY and MN intersect at 0. If ∠POY = 90° , and a : b = 2 : 3. find c.

Solution:

Since XOY is a straight line.

∴ b+a+∠POY= 180°

But ∠POY = 90° [Given]

∴ b + a = 180° – 90° = 90° …(i)

Also a : b = 2 : 3 ⇒ b = …(ii)

Now from (i) and (ii), we get

+ A = 90°

⇒ = 90°

⇒ a = = 36°

From (ii), we get

b = x 36° = 54°

Since XY and MN interstect at O,

∴ c = [a + ∠POY] [Vertically opposite angles]

or c = 36° + 90° = 126°

Thus, the required measure of c = 126°.

∴ b+a+∠POY= 180°

But ∠POY = 90° [Given]

∴ b + a = 180° – 90° = 90° …(i)

Also a : b = 2 : 3 ⇒ b = …(ii)

Now from (i) and (ii), we get

+ A = 90°

⇒ = 90°

⇒ a = = 36°

From (ii), we get

b = x 36° = 54°

Since XY and MN interstect at O,

∴ c = [a + ∠POY] [Vertically opposite angles]

or c = 36° + 90° = 126°

Thus, the required measure of c = 126°.

**Question 3.**

In figure, ∠PQR = ∠PRQ, then prove that ∠PQS = ∠PRT.In figure, ∠PQR = ∠PRQ, then prove that ∠PQS = ∠PRT.

Solution:

ST is a straight line.

∴ ∠PQR + ∠PQS = 180° …(1) [Linear pair]

Similarly, ∠PRT + ∠PRQ = 180° …(2) [Linear Pair]

From (1) and (2), we have

∠PQS + ∠PQR = ∠PRT + ∠PRQ

But ∠PQR = ∠PRQ [Given]

∴ ∠PQS = ∠PRT

∴ ∠PQR + ∠PQS = 180° …(1) [Linear pair]

Similarly, ∠PRT + ∠PRQ = 180° …(2) [Linear Pair]

From (1) and (2), we have

∠PQS + ∠PQR = ∠PRT + ∠PRQ

But ∠PQR = ∠PRQ [Given]

∴ ∠PQS = ∠PRT

**Question 4.**

In figure, if x + y = w + ⇒, then prove that AOB is a line.In figure, if x + y = w + ⇒, then prove that AOB is a line.

Solution:

Sum of all the angles at a point = 360°

∴ x + y + ⇒ + w = 360° or, (x + y) + (⇒ + w) = 360°

But (x + y) = (⇒ + w) [Given]

∴ (x + y) + (x + y) = 360° or,

2(x + y) = 360°

or, (x + y) = = 180°

∴ AOB is a straight line.

Sum of all the angles at a point = 360°

∴ x + y + ⇒ + w = 360° or, (x + y) + (⇒ + w) = 360°

But (x + y) = (⇒ + w) [Given]

∴ (x + y) + (x + y) = 360° or,

2(x + y) = 360°

or, (x + y) = = 180°

∴ AOB is a straight line.

∴ ∠POS + ∠ROS + ∠ROQ = 180°

But OR ⊥ PQ

∴ ∠ROQ = 90°

⇒ ∠POS + ∠ROS + 90° = 180°

⇒ ∠POS + ∠ROS = 90°

⇒ ∠ROS = 90° – ∠POS … (1)

Now, we have ∠ROS + ∠ROQ = ∠QOS

⇒ ∠ROS + 90° = ∠QOS

⇒ ∠ROS = ∠QOS – 90° ……(2)

Adding (1) and (2), we have

2 ∠ROS = (∠QOS – ∠POS)

∴ ∠ROS =

∴ ∠ROQ = 90°

⇒ ∠POS + ∠ROS + 90° = 180°

⇒ ∠POS + ∠ROS = 90°

⇒ ∠ROS = 90° – ∠POS … (1)

Now, we have ∠ROS + ∠ROQ = ∠QOS

⇒ ∠ROS + 90° = ∠QOS

⇒ ∠ROS = ∠QOS – 90° ……(2)

Adding (1) and (2), we have

2 ∠ROS = (∠QOS – ∠POS)

∴ ∠ROS =

If ray YQ bisects ∠ZYP, find ∠XYQ and reflex ∠QYP.It is given that ∠XYZ = 64° and XY is produced to point P. Draw a figure from the given information. If ray YQ bisects ∠ZYP, find ∠XYQ and reflex ∠QYP.

Solution:

XYP is a straight line.

∴ ∠XYZ + ∠ZYQ + ∠QYP = 180°

⇒ 64° + ∠ZYQ + ∠QYP = 180°

[∵ ∠XYZ = 64° (given)]

⇒ 64° + 2∠QYP = 180°

[YQ bisects ∠ZYP so, ∠QYP = ∠ZYQ]

⇒ 2∠QYP = 180° – 64° = 116°

⇒ ∠QYP = = 58°

∴ Reflex ∠QYP = 360° – 58° = 302°

Since ∠XYQ = ∠XYZ + ∠ZYQ

⇒ ∠XYQ = 64° + ∠QYP [∵∠XYZ = 64°(Given) and ∠ZYQ = ∠QYP]

⇒ ∠XYQ = 64° + 58° = 122° [∠QYP = 58°]

Thus, ∠XYQ = 122° and reflex ∠QYP = 302°.

∴ ∠XYZ + ∠ZYQ + ∠QYP = 180°

⇒ 64° + ∠ZYQ + ∠QYP = 180°

[∵ ∠XYZ = 64° (given)]

⇒ 64° + 2∠QYP = 180°

[YQ bisects ∠ZYP so, ∠QYP = ∠ZYQ]

⇒ 2∠QYP = 180° – 64° = 116°

⇒ ∠QYP = = 58°

∴ Reflex ∠QYP = 360° – 58° = 302°

Since ∠XYQ = ∠XYZ + ∠ZYQ

⇒ ∠XYQ = 64° + ∠QYP [∵∠XYZ = 64°(Given) and ∠ZYQ = ∠QYP]

⇒ ∠XYQ = 64° + 58° = 122° [∠QYP = 58°]

Thus, ∠XYQ = 122° and reflex ∠QYP = 302°.

In figure, find the values of x and y and then show that AB || CD.

Solution:

In the figure, we have CD and PQ intersect at F.

∴ y = 130° …(1)

[Vertically opposite angles]

Again, PQ is a straight line and EA stands on it.

∠AEP + ∠AEQ = 180° [Linear pair]

or 50° + x = 180°

⇒ x = 180° – 50° = 130° …(2)

From (1) and (2), x = y

As they are pair of alternate interior angles.

∴ AB || CD

∴ y = 130° …(1)

[Vertically opposite angles]

Again, PQ is a straight line and EA stands on it.

∠AEP + ∠AEQ = 180° [Linear pair]

or 50° + x = 180°

⇒ x = 180° – 50° = 130° …(2)

∴ AB || CD

**Question 2.**

In figure, if AB || CD, CD || EF and y : z = 3 : 7, find x.In figure, if AB || CD, CD || EF and y : z = 3 : 7, find x.

Solution:

AB || CD, and CD || EF [Given]

∴ AB || EF

∴ x = z [Alternate interior angles] ….(1)

Again, AB || CD

⇒ x + y = 180° [Co-interior angles]

⇒ z + y = 180° … (2) [By (1)]

But y : z = 3 : 7

z = y = (180°- z) [By (2)]

⇒ 10z = 7 x 180°

⇒ z = 7 x 180° /10 = 126°

From (1) and (3), we have

x = 126°.

AB || CD, and CD || EF [Given]

∴ AB || EF

∴ x = z [Alternate interior angles] ….(1)

Again, AB || CD

⇒ x + y = 180° [Co-interior angles]

⇒ z + y = 180° … (2) [By (1)]

But y : z = 3 : 7

z = y = (180°- z) [By (2)]

⇒ 10z = 7 x 180°

⇒ z = 7 x 180° /10 = 126°

∴ ∠AGE = ∠GED [Alternate interior angles]

But ∠GED = 126° [Given]

∴∠AGE = 126°

Also, ∠GEF + ∠FED = ∠GED

or ∠GEF + 90° = 126° [∵ EF ⊥ CD (given)]

x = z [Alternate interior angles]… (1) Again, AB || CD

⇒ x + y = 180° [Co-interior angles]

∠GEF = 126° -90° = 36°

Now, AB || CD and GE is a transversal.

∴ ∠FGE + ∠GED = 180° [Co-interior angles]

or ∠FGE + 126° = 180°

or ∠FGE = 180° – 126° = 54°

Thus, ∠AGE = 126°, ∠GEF=36° and ∠FGE = 54°.

∴ ∠AGE = ∠GED [Alternate interior angles]

But ∠GED = 126° [Given]

∴∠AGE = 126°

Also, ∠GEF + ∠FED = ∠GED

or ∠GEF + 90° = 126° [∵ EF ⊥ CD (given)]

x = z [Alternate interior angles]… (1) Again, AB || CD

⇒ x + y = 180° [Co-interior angles]

∠GEF = 126° -90° = 36°

Now, AB || CD and GE is a transversal.

∴ ∠FGE + ∠GED = 180° [Co-interior angles]

or ∠FGE + 126° = 180°

or ∠FGE = 180° – 126° = 54°

Solution:

Draw a line EF parallel to ST through R.

Since PQ || ST [Given]

and EF || ST [Construction]

∴ PQ || EF and QR is a transversal

⇒ ∠PQR = ∠QRF [Alternate interior angles] But ∠PQR = 110° [Given]

∴∠QRF = ∠QRS + ∠SRF = 110° …(1)

Again ST || EF and RS is a transversal

∴ ∠RST + ∠SRF = 180° [Co-interior angles] or 130° + ∠SRF = 180°

⇒ ∠SRF = 180° – 130° = 50°

Now, from (1), we have ∠QRS + 50° = 110°

⇒ ∠QRS = 110° – 50° = 60°

Thus, ∠QRS = 60°.

Draw a line EF parallel to ST through R.

Since PQ || ST [Given]

and EF || ST [Construction]

∴ PQ || EF and QR is a transversal

Solution:

We have AB || CD and PQ is a transversal.

∴ ∠APQ = ∠PQR

[Alternate interior angles]

⇒ 50° = x [ ∵ ∠APQ = 50° (given)]

Again, AB || CD and PR is a transversal.

∴ ∠APR = ∠PRD [Alternate interior angles]

⇒ ∠APR = 127° [ ∵ ∠PRD = 127° (given)]

⇒ ∠APQ + ∠QPR = 127°

⇒ 50° + y = 127° [ ∵ ∠APQ = 50° (given)]

⇒ y = 127°- 50° = 77°

Thus, x = 50° and y = 77°.

∴ ∠APQ = ∠PQR

[Alternate interior angles]

⇒ 50° = x [ ∵ ∠APQ = 50° (given)]

Again, AB || CD and PR is a transversal.

∴ ∠APR = ∠PRD [Alternate interior angles]

∵ PQ || RS ⇒ BL || CM

[∵ BL || PQ and CM || RS]

Now, BL || CM and BC is a transversal.

∴ ∠LBC = ∠MCB …(1) [Alternate interior angles]

Since, angle of incidence = Angle of reflection

∠ABL = ∠LBC and ∠MCB = ∠MCD

⇒ ∠ABL = ∠MCD …(2) [By (1)]

Adding (1) and (2), we get

∠LBC + ∠ABL = ∠MCB + ∠MCD

Solution:

In ∆XYZ, we have ∠XYZ + ∠YZX + ∠ZXY = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

But ∠XYZ = 54° and ∠ZXY = 62°

∴ 54° + ∠YZX + 62° = 180°

⇒ ∠YZX = 180° – 54° – 62° = 64°

YO and ZO are the bisectors of ∠XYZ and ∠XZY respectively.

∴ ∠OYZ = = (54°) = 27°

and ∠OZY = = (64°) = 32°

Now, in ∆OYZ, we have

∠YOZ + ∠OYZ + ∠OZY = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

⇒ ∠YOZ + 27° + 32° = 180°

Thus, ∠OZY = 32° and ∠YOZ = 121°

In ∆XYZ, we have ∠XYZ + ∠YZX + ∠ZXY = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

But ∠XYZ = 54° and ∠ZXY = 62°

∴ 54° + ∠YZX + 62° = 180°

⇒ ∠YZX = 180° – 54° – 62° = 64°

YO and ZO are the bisectors of ∠XYZ and ∠XZY respectively.

∴ ∠OYZ = = (54°) = 27°

and ∠OZY = = (64°) = 32°

Now, in ∆OYZ, we have

∠YOZ + ∠OYZ + ∠OZY = 180°

∴ ∠AED = 35°

Now, in ∆CDE, we have ∠CDE + ∠DEC + ∠DCE = 180°

{Angle sum property of a triangle]

∴ 53° + 35° + ∠DCE =180°

[∵ ∠DEC = ∠AED = 35° and∠CDE = 53° (Given)]

⇒ ∠DCE = 180° – 53° – 35° = 92°

Thus, ∠DCE = 92°

So, ∠BAC = ∠AED

[Alternate interior angles]

∴ ∠AED = 35°

Now, in ∆CDE, we have ∠CDE + ∠DEC + ∠DCE = 180°

{Angle sum property of a triangle]

∴ 53° + 35° + ∠DCE =180°

[∵ ∠DEC = ∠AED = 35° and∠CDE = 53° (Given)]

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

⇒ 95° + 40° + ∠PTR =180°

[ ∵ ∠P = 95°, ∠R = 40° (given)]

⇒ ∠PTR = 180° – 95° – 40° = 45°

But PQ and RS intersect at T.

∴ ∠PTR = ∠QTS

[Vertically opposite angles]

∴ ∠QTS = 45° [ ∵ ∠PTR = 45°]

Now, in ∆ TQS, we have ∠TSQ + ∠STQ + ∠SQT = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

∴ 75° + 45° + ∠SQT = 180° [ ∵ ∠TSQ = 75° and ∠STQ = 45°]

Thus, ∠SQT = 60°

In ∆PRT, we have ∠P + ∠R + ∠PTR = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

⇒ 95° + 40° + ∠PTR =180°

[ ∵ ∠P = 95°, ∠R = 40° (given)]

⇒ ∠PTR = 180° – 95° – 40° = 45°

But PQ and RS intersect at T.

∴ ∠PTR = ∠QTS

[Vertically opposite angles]

∴ ∠QTS = 45° [ ∵ ∠PTR = 45°]

Now, in ∆ TQS, we have ∠TSQ + ∠STQ + ∠SQT = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

∴ 75° + 45° + ∠SQT = 180° [ ∵ ∠TSQ = 75° and ∠STQ = 45°]

⇒ ∠SQT = 180° – 75° – 45° = 60°

Thus, ∠SQT = 60°

[Exterior angle property of a triangle]

But ∠RQS = 28° and ∠QRT = 65°

So, 28° + ∠RSQ = 65°

⇒ ∠RSQ = 65° – 28° = 37°

Since, PQ || SR and QS is a transversal.

∴ ∠PQS = ∠RSQ = 37°

[Alternate interior angles]

⇒ x = 37°

Again, PQ ⊥ PS ⇒ AP = 90°

Now, in ∆PQS,

we have ∠P + ∠PQS + ∠PSQ = 180°

[Angle sum property of a triangle]

⇒ 90° + 37° + y = 180°

⇒ y = 180° – 90° – 37° = 53°

Thus, x = 37° and y = 53°

In ∆ QRS, the side SR is produced to T.

∴ ∠QRT = ∠RQS + ∠RSQ

**Question 6.**

In figure, the side QR of ∆PQR is produced to a point S. If the bisectors of ∠PQR and ∠PRS meet at point T, then prove thatIn figure, the side QR of ∆PQR is produced to a point S. If the bisectors of ∠PQR and ∠PRS meet at point T, then prove that

Solution:

In ∆PQR, side QR is produced to S, so by exterior angle property,

∠PRS = ∠P + ∠PQR

⇒ ∠PRS = ∠P + ∠PQR

⇒ ∠TRS = ∠P + ∠TQR …(1)

[∵ QT and RT are bisectors of ∠PQR and ∠PRS respectively.]

Now, in ∆QRT, we have

∠TRS = ∠TQR + ∠T …(2)

[Exterior angle property of a triangle]

From (1) and (2),

we have ∠TQR + ∠P = ∠TQR + ∠T

⇒ ∠P = ∠T

⇒ ∠QPR = ∠QTR or ∠QTR = ∠QPR

∠PRS = ∠P + ∠PQR

⇒ ∠PRS = ∠P + ∠PQR

⇒ ∠TRS = ∠P + ∠TQR …(1)

[∵ QT and RT are bisectors of ∠PQR and ∠PRS respectively.]

Now, in ∆QRT, we have

∠TRS = ∠TQR + ∠T …(2)

[Exterior angle property of a triangle]

From (1) and (2),

we have ∠TQR + ∠P = ∠TQR + ∠T

⇒ ∠P = ∠T

⇒ ∠QPR = ∠QTR or ∠QTR = ∠QPR
