Question 1.

Three angles of a quadrilateral are respectively equal to 110°, 50° and 40°. Find its fourth angle.

Solution:

Sum of four angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

Three angles are = 110°, 50° and 40°

∴ Fourth angle = 360° – (110° + 50° + 40°)

= 360° – 200° = 160°

Question 2.

In a quadrilateral ABCD, the angles A, B, C and D are in the ratio 1 : 2 : 4 : 5. Find the measures of each angle of the quadrilateral.

Solution:

Sum of angles of a quadrilateral ABCD = 360°

Ratio in angles = 1 : 2 : 4 : 5

Let first angle = x

Second angle = 2x

Third angle = 4x

and fourth angle = 5x

∴ x + 2x + 4x + 5x = 360°

⇒ 12x = 360° ⇒ x = = 30°

∴ First angle = 30°

Second angle = 30° x 2 = 60°

Third angle = 30° x 4 = 120°

Fourth angle = 30° x 5 = 150°

Question 3.

The angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 9 : 13. Find all the angles of the quadrilateral. [NCERT]

Solution:

Sum of four angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

Ratio in the angles = 3 : 5 : 9 : 13

Let first angle = 3x

Then second angle = 5x

Third angle = 9x

and fourth angle = 13x

∴ 3x + 5x + 9x+ 13x = 360°

⇒ 30x = 360°

⇒ x = = 12°

∴ First angle = 3x = 3 x 12° = 36°

Second angle = 5x = 5 x 12° = 60°

Third angle = 9x = 9 x 12° = 108°

Fourth angle = 13 x 12° = 156°

Question 1.

Two opposite angles of a parallelogram are (3x- 2)° and (50 – x)°. Find the measure of each angle of the parallelogram.

Solution:

∵ Opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal

∴ 3x – 2 = 50 – x

⇒ 3x + x – 50 + 2

⇒ 4x = 52

⇒ x = = 13

∴ ∠A = 3x – 2 = 3 x 13 – 2 = 39° – 2 = 37°

∠C = 50° -x = 50° – 13 = 37°

But∠A + B = 180°

∴ 37° + ∠B = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180° – 37° = 143°

and ∠D = ∠B (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

∴ ∠D = 143°

Hence angles and 37°, 143°, 37°, 143°

Question 2.

If an angle of a parallelogram is two-third of its adjacent angle, find the angles of the parallelogram.

Solution:

Let in ||gm ABCD,

∠A =x

Then ∠B = x

But, ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of two adjacent angles of a ||gm)

⇒ x + x = 180°

⇒ x = 180°

⇒ x = 180° x = 108°

∴ ∠A = 108°

and ∠B = 108° x = 72°

But, ∠A = ∠C and ∠B = ∠D (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

∴ ∠C = 108°, ∠D = 72°

Hence angles are 108°, 72°, 108°, 72°

Question 3.

Find the measure of all the angles of a parallelogram, if one angle is 24° less than twice the smallest angle.

Solution:

Let smallest angle of a ||gm = x

Then second angle = 2x – 24°

But these are consecutive angles

∴ x + (2x- 24°) = 180°

⇒ x + 2x – 24° = 180°

⇒ 3x = 180° + 24° = 204°

⇒ x = = 68°

∴ Smallest angle = 68°

and second angle = 2x 68° – 24°

= 136°-24° = 112°

∵ The opposite angles of a ||gm are equal Other two angles will be 68° and 112°

∴ Hence angles are 68°, 112°, 68°, 112°

Question 4.

The perimeter of a parallelogram is 22 cm. If the longer side measures 6.5 cm what is the measure of the shorter side?

Solution:

In a ||gm ABC,

Perimeter = 22cm

and longest side = 6.5 cm

Let shorter side = x

∴ 2x (6.5 + x) = 22

⇒ 13 + 2x = 22

⇒ 2x = 22 – 13 = 9

⇒ x = = 4.5

∴ shorter side = 4.5cm

Question 5.

In a parallelogram ABCD, ∠D = 135°, determine the measure of ∠A and ∠B.

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD,

∠D = 135°

But, ∠A + ∠D = 180° (Sum of consecutive angles)

⇒∠A+ 135° = 180°

⇒ ∠A = 180° – 135° = 45°

∵ ∠B = ∠D (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

∴ ∠B = 135°

Question 6.

ABCD is a parallelogram in which ∠A = 70°. Compute ∠B, ∠C and ∠D.

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD,

∠A = 70°

But ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of consecutive angles)

⇒ 70° + ∠B = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180° – 70° = 110°

But ∠C = ∠A and ∠D = ∠B (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

∠C = 70° and ∠D = 110°

Hence ∠B = 110°, ∠C = 70° and ∠D = 110°

Question 7.

In the figure, ABCD is a parallelogram in which ∠DAB = 75° and ∠DBC = 60°. Compute ∠CDB and ∠ADB.

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD,

∠A + ∠B = 180°

(Sum of consecutive angles) But, ∠A = 75°

∴ ∠B = 180° – ∠A = 180° – 75° = 105°

∴ DBA = 105° -60° = 45°

But ∠CDB = ∠DBA (alternate angles)

= 45°

and ∠ADB = ∠DBC = 60°

Question 8.

(i) In a parallelogram, the diagonals are equal.

(ii) In a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other.

(iii) In a parallelogram, the diagonals intersect each other at right angles.

(ii) True.

(iii) False, Diagonals bisect each other at right angles is a rhombus or a square only.

(iv) False, In a quadrilateral, if opposite sides are equal and parallel, then it is a ||gm.

(v) False, If all angles are equal, then it is a square or a rectangle.

(vi) False, If opposite sides are equal and parallel then it is a ||gm

(vii) False, If opposite angles are equal, then it is a parallelogram.

(viii)False, If all the sides are equal then it is a square or a rhombus but not parallelogram.

Question 9.

In the figure, ABCD is a parallelogram in which ∠A = 60°. If the bisectors of ∠A and ∠B meet at P, prove that AD = DP, PC= BC and DC = 2AD.

Solution:

Given : In ||gm ABCD,

∠A = 60°

Bisector of ∠A and ∠B meet at P.

To prove :

(i) AD = DP

(ii) PC = BC

(iii) DC = 2AD

Construction : Join PD and PC

Proof : In ||gm ABCD,

∠A = 60°

But ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of excutive angles)

⇒ 60° + ∠B = 180°

∴ ∠B = 1809 – 60° = 120°

∵ DC || AB

∠PAB = ∠DPA (alternate angles)

⇒ ∠PAD = ∠DPA (∵ ∠PAB = ∠PAD)

∴ AB = DP

(PA is its angle bisector, sides opposite to equal angles)

(ii) Similarly, we can prove that ∠PBC = ∠PCB (∵ ∠PAB = ∠BCA alternate angles)

∴ PC = BC

(iii) DC = DP + PC

= AD + BC [From (i) and (ii)]

= AD + AB = 2AB (∵BC = AD opposite sides of the ||gm)

Hence DC = 2AD

Question 10.

In the figure, ABCD is a parallelogram and E is the mid-point of side BC. If DE and AB when produced meet at F, prove thatAF = 2AB.

Solution:

Given : In ||gm ABCD,

E a mid point of BC

DE is joined and produced to meet AB produced at F

To prove : AF = 2AB

Proof : In ∆CDE and ∆EBF

∠DEC = ∠BEF (vertically opposite angles)

CE = EB (E is mid point of BC)

∠DCE = ∠EBF (alternate angles)

∴ ∆CDE ≅ ∆EBF (SAS Axiom)

∴ DC = BF (c.p.c.t.)

But AB = DC (opposite sides of a ||gm)

∴ AB = BF

Now, AF = AB + BF = AB + AB = 2AB

Hence AF = 2AB

Question 1.

In a parallelogram ABCD, determine the sum of angles ZC and ZD.

Solution:

In a ||gm ABCD,

∠C + ∠D = 180°

(Sum of consecutive angles)

Question 2.

In a parallelogram ABCD, if ∠B = 135°, determine the measures of its other angles.

Solution:

In a ||gm ABCD, ∠B = 135°

∴ ∠D = ∠B = 135° (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

But ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of consecutive angles)

⇒ ∠B + 135° = 180°

∴ ∠A = 180° – 135° = 45°

But∠C = ∠B = 45° (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

∴ Angles are 45°, 135°, 45°, 135°.

Question 3.

ABCD is a square, AC and BD intersect at O. State the measure of ∠AOB.

Solution:

In a square ABCD,

Diagonal AC and BD intersect each other at O

∵ Diagonals of a square bisect each other at right angle

∵∠AOB = 90°

Question 4.

ABCD is a rectangle with ∠ABD = 40°. Determine ∠DBC.

Solution:

In rectangle ABCD,

∠B = 90°, BD is its diagonal

But ∠ABD = 40°

and ∠ABD + ∠DBC = 90°

⇒ 40° + ∠DBC = 90°

⇒ ∠DBC = 90° – 40° = 50°

Hence ∠DBC = 50°

Question 5.

Solution:

Given : In ||gm ABCD, E and F are the mid points of the side AB and CD respectively

DE and BF are joined

To prove : EBFD is a ||gm

Construction : Join EF

Proof : ∵ ABCD is a ||gm

∴ AB = CD and AB || CD

(Opposite sides of a ||gm are equal and parallel)

∴ EB || DF and EB = DF (∵ E and F are mid points of AB and CD)

∴ EBFD is a ||gm.

Question 6.

P and Q are the points of trisection of the diagonal BD of the parallelogram ABCD. Prove that CQ is parallel to AP. Prove also that AC bisects PQ.

Solution:

Given : In ||gm, ABCD. P and Q are the points of trisection of the diagonal BD

To prove : (i) CQ || AP

AC bisects PQ

Proof: ∵ Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other

∴ AO = OC and BO = OD

∴ P and Q are point of trisection of BD

∴ BP = PQ = QD …(i)

∵ BO = OD and BP = QD …(ii)

Subtracting, (ii) from (i) we get

OB – BP = OD – QD

⇒ OP = OQ

In quadrilateral APCQ,

OA = OC and OP = OQ (proved)

Diagonals AC and PQ bisect each other at O

∴ APCQ is a parallelogram

Hence AP || CQ.

Question 7.

ABCD is a square. E, F, G and H are points on AB, BC, CD and DA respectively, such that AE = BF = CG = DH. Prove that EFGH is a square.

Solution:

Given : In square ABCD

E, F, G and H are the points on AB, BC, CD and DA respectively such that AE = BF = CG = DH

To prove : EFGH is a square

Proof : E, F, G and H are points on the sides AB, BC, CA and DA respectively such that

AE = BF = CG = DH = x (suppose)

Then BE = CF = DG = AH = y (suppose)

Now in ∆AEH and ∆BFE

AE = BF (given)

∠A = ∠B (each 90°)

AH = BE (proved)

∴ ∆AEH ≅ ∆BFE (SAS criterion)

∴ ∠1 = ∠2 and ∠3 = ∠4 (c.p.c.t.)

But ∠1 + ∠3 = 90° and ∠2 + ∠4 = 90° (∠A = ∠B = 90°)

⇒ ∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 = 90° + 90° = 180°

⇒ ∠1 + ∠4 + ∠1 + ∠4 = 180°

⇒ 2(∠1 + ∠4) = 180°

⇒ ∠1 + ∠4 = = 90°

∴ ∠HEF = 180° – 90° = 90°

Similarly, we can prove that

∠F = ∠G = ∠H = 90°

Since sides of quad. EFGH is are equal and each angle is of 90°

∴ EFGH is a square.

Question 8.

ABCD is a rhombus, EABF is a straight line such that EA = AB = BF. Prove that ED and FC when produced meet at right angles.

Solution:

Given : ABCD is a rhombus, EABF is a straight line such that

ED and FC are joined

Which meet at G on producing

To prove: ∠EGF = 90°

Proof : ∵ Diagonals of a rhombus bisect

each other at right angles

AO = OC, BO = OD

∠AOD = ∠COD = 90°

and ∠AOB = ∠BOC = 90°

In ∆BDE,

A and O are the mid-points of BE and BD respectively.

∴ AO || ED

Similarly, OC || DG

In ∆ CFA, B and O are the mid-points of AF and AC respectively

∴ OB || CF and OD || GC

Now in quad. DOCG

OC || DG and OD || CG

∴ DOCG is a parallelogram.

∴ ∠DGC = ∠DOC (opposite angles of ||gm)

∴ ∠DGC = 90° (∵ ∠DOC = 90°)

Hence proved.

Question 9.

ABCD is a parallelogram, AD is produced to E so that DE = DC = AD and EC produced meets AB produced in F. Prove that BF = BC.

Solution:

Given : In ||gm ABCD,

AB is produced to E so that

DE = DA and EC produced meets AB produced in F.

To prove : BF = BC

Proof: In ∆ACE,

O and D are the mid points of sides AC and AE

∴ DO || EC and DB || FC

⇒ BD || EF

∴ AB = BF

But AB = DC (Opposite sides of ||gm)

∴ DC = BF

Now in ∆EDC and ∆CBF,

DC = BF (proved)

∠EDC = ∠CBF

(∵∠EDC = ∠DAB corresponding angles)

∠DAB = ∠CBF (corresponding angles)

∠ECD = ∠CFB (corresponding angles)

∴ AEDC ≅ ACBF (ASA criterion)

∴ DE = BC (c.p.c.t.)

⇒ DC = BC

⇒ AB = BC

⇒ BF = BC (∵AB = BF proved)

Hence proved.

∴ ABCQ is a ||gm

∴ BC = AQ

Similarly, BCAP is a ||gm

∴ BC = AP …(i)

∴ AQ = AP = BL

Question 1.

In a parallelogram ABCD, write the sum of angles A and B.

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD,

∠A + ∠B = 180°

(Sum of consecutive angles of a ||gm)

Question 2.

In a parallelogram ABCD, if ∠D = 115°, then write the measure of ∠A.

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD,

∠D = 115°

But ∠A + ∠D = 180°

(Sum of consecutive angles of a ||gm)

⇒ ∠A + 115°= 180° ∠A = 180°- 115°

∴ ∠A = 65°

Question 3.

PQRS is a square such that PR and SQ intersect at O. State the measure of ∠POQ.

Solution:

In a square PQRS,

Diagonals PR and QS intersects each other at O.

∵ The diagonals of a square bisect each other at right angles.

∴ ∠POQ = 90°

Question 4.

If PQRS is a square then write the measure of ∠SRP.

Solution:

In square PQRS,

Join PR,

∵Diagonals of a square bisect are opposite angles

∴∠SRP = x ∠SRQ

= x 90° = 45°

Question 5.

If ABCD is a rhombus with ∠ABC = 56°, find the measure of ∠ACD.

Solution:

In rhombus ABCD,

Diagonals bisect each other at 0 at right angles.

∠ABC = 56°

But ∠ABC + ∠BCD = 180° (Sum of consecutive angles)

⇒ 56° + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 56° = 124°

∵ Diagonals of a rhombus bisect the opposite angle

∴ ∠ACD = ∠BCD = x 124°

= 62°

Question 6.

The perimeter of a parallelogram is 22 cm. If the longer side measures 6.5 cm, what is the measure of the shorter side.

Solution:

Perimeter of a ||gm ABCD = 22cm

∴ Sum of two consecutive sides =

= 11cm

i.e. AB + BC = 11 cm

AB = 6.5 cm and let BC = x cm

∴ 6.5 + x = 11 cm

x = 11 – 6.5 = 4.5

∴ Shorter side = 4.5 cm

Question 7.

If the angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 9 : 13. Then find the measure of the smallest angle.

Solution:

Ratio in the angles of a quadrilateral = 3 : 5 : 9 : 13

Let first angle = 3x

Second angle = 5x

Third angle = 9x

and fourth angle = 13x

∵ The sum of angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

∴ 3x + 5x + 9x + 13x = 360°

⇒ 30x = 360° ⇒ x = = 12

∴ Smallest angle = 3x = 3 x 12° = 36°

Question 8.

In parallelogram ABCD if ∠A = (3x – 20°), ∠B = (y + 15)°, ∠C = (x + 40°), then find the value of x and y.

Solution:

In a ||gm ABCD,

∠A = (3x – 20°), ∠B = y + 15°,

∠C = x + 40°

Now, ∠A = ∠C (Opposite angles of a ||gm)

⇒ 3x – 20 = x + 40°

⇒ 3x – x = 40° + 20° ⇒ 2x = 60°

⇒ x = = 30°

and ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of the consecutive angles)

⇒ 3x-20° + y + 15° = 180°

⇒ 3x + y – 5° = 180°

⇒ 3 x 30° +y- 5° = 180°

⇒ 90° – 5° + y = 180

y = 180° – 90° + 5 = 95°

∴ x = 30°, y = 95°

Question 9.

If measures opposite angles of a parallelogram are (60 – x)° and (3x – 4)°, then find the measures of angles of the parallelogram.

Solution:

Opposite angles of a ||gm ABCD are (60 – x)° and (3x – 4°)

But opposite angles of a ||gm are equal, the

60° – x° = 3x – 4° ⇒ 60° + 4° = 3x + x

⇒ 4x = 64° ⇒ x = = 16°

∴ ∠A = 60° – x = 60° – 16° = 44°

But ∠A + ∠B = 180° (sum of consecutive angle)

⇒ 44° + ∠B = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180° – 44°

⇒ ∠B = 136°

But ∠A = ∠C and ∠B = ∠D (Opposite angles)

∴ Angles are 44°, 136°, 44°, 136°

Question 10.

In a parallelogram ABCD, the bisectors of ∠A also bisect BC at x, find AB : AD.

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD,

Draw XY ||gm AB meeting AD at Y

Question 11.

In the figure, PQRS in an isosceles trapezium find x and y.

Solution:

∵ PQRS is an isosceles trapezium in which

SP = RQ and SR || PQ

∴ ∠P + ∠S = 180° (Sum of co-interior angles)

3x + 2x = 180° ⇒ 5x = 180°

⇒ x = = 36°

But ∠P = ∠Qm (Base angles of isosceles trapezium)

y = 2x = 2 x 36° = 12°

∴ y = 12°

Hence x = 36°, y = 12°

Question 12.

In the figure ABCD is a trapezium. Find the values of x and y.

Solution:

In trapezium ABCD,

AB || CD

∴ ∠A + ∠D = 180° (Sum of cointerior angles)

x + 20° + 2x + 10° = 180°

3x + 30° = 180°

⇒ 3x= 180° – 30°

3x = 150°

x = = 50°

Similarly, ∠B + ∠C = 180°

⇒ y + 92° = 180°

⇒ y = 180° – 92° = 88°

∴ x = 50°, y = 88°

Question 13.

In the figure, ABCD and AEFG are two parallelograms. If ∠C = 58°, find ∠F.

Solution:

In the figure, ABCD and AEFG are two parallelograms ∠C = 58°

∵ DC || GF and CB || FE (Sides of ||gms)

∴ ∠C = ∠F

But ∠C = 58°

∴ ∠F = 58°

Question 15.

In a quadrilateral ABCD, bisectors of A and B intersect at O such that ∠AOB = 75°, then write the value of ∠C + ∠D.

Solution:

In quadrilateral ABCD,

Bisectors of ∠A and ∠B meet at O and ∠AOB = 75°

In AOB, ∠AOB = 75°

∴ ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180° – 75° = 105°

But OA and OB are the bisectors of ∠A and ∠B.

∴ ∠A + ∠B = 2 x 105° = 210°

But ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360° (Sum of angles of a quad.)

∴ 210° + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

⇒ ∠C + ∠D = 360° – 210° = 150°

Hence ∠C + ∠D = 150°

Question 16.

The diagonals of a rectangle ABCD meet at O. If ∠BOC = 44° find ∠OAD.

Solution:

In rectangle ABCD,

Diagonals AC and BD intersect each other at O and ∠BOC = 44°

But ∠AOD = ∠BOC (Vertically opposite angles)

∴ ∠AOD = 44°

In ∆AOD,

∠AOD + ∠OAD + ∠ODA = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)

⇒ 44° + ∠OAD + ∠OAD = 180° [∵ OA = OD, ∠OAD = ∠ODA]

⇒ 2∠OAD = 180° – 44° = 136°

∴ ∠OAD = = 68°

Question 17.

If ABCD is a rectangle with ∠BAC = 32°, find the measure if ∠DBC.

Solution:

In rectangle ABCD,

Diagonals bisect each other at O

∠BAC = 32°

∵ OA = OB

∴ ∠OBA Or ∠DBA = ∠BAC = 32°

But ∠ABC = 90° (Angle of a rectangles)

∴ ∠DBC = ∠ABC – ∠DBA

= 90° – 32° = 58°

Question 18.

If the bisectors of two adjacent angles A and B of a quadrilateral ABCD intersect at a point O. Such that ∠C + ∠D = k(∠AOB), then find the value of k.

Solution:

In quadrilateral ABCD,

Bisectors of ∠A and ∠B meet at O

Such that ∠C + ∠D = k (∠AOB)

Question 19.

In the figure, PQRS is a rhombus in which the diagonal PR is produced to T. If ∠SRT = 152°, find x, y and z.

Solution:

In rhombus PQRS,

Diagonal PR and SQ bisect each other at right angles and PR is produced to T such that ∠SRT = 152°

But ∠SRT + ∠SRP = 180° (Linear pair)

⇒ 152° +∠SRP = 180°

⇒ ∠SRP =180°- 152° = 28°

But ∠SPR = ∠SRP (∵ PR bisects ∠P and ∠R)

⇒ z = 28°

y = 90° (∵ Diagonals bisect each other at right angles)

∠RPQ = z = 28°

∴ In ∆POQ,

z + x = 90° ⇒ 28° + x = 90°

⇒ x = 90° – 28° = 62°

∴ x = 62°, y = 90°, z = 28°

Question 20.

In the figure, ABCD is a rectangle in which diagonal AC is produced to E. If ∠ECD = 146°, find ∠AOB.

Solution:

In rectangle ABCD,

Diagonals AC and BD bisect each other at O

AC is produced to E and ∠DCE = 146°

∠DCE + ∠DCA = 180° (Linear pair)

⇒ 146°+ ∠DCA= 180°

⇒ ∠DCA = 180°- 146°

⇒ ∠DCA = 34°

∴ ∠CAB = ∠DCA (Alternate angles)

= 34°

Now in ∆AOB,

∠AOB = 180° – (∠DAB + ∠OBA)

= 180° – (34° + 34°)

= 1803 – 68° = 112°

Solution:

In ||gm ABC,

But ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of two consecutive angles)

⇒ 75° + ∠B = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180°- 75“= 105°

But ∠DBC = 60°

∴ ∠DBA = 105°-60° = 45°

But ∠BDC = ∠DBA (Alternate angles)

AB = 12 cm, MN = 14 cm

∵ MN = (AB + CD)

Solution:

Diagonals AC and BD of quadrilateral ABCD bisect each other at O

∴ AO = OC, BO = OD

∴ ABCD is a ||gm ∠A = 45°

∴ F is mid-point of AG

⇒ AF = FG …(i)

In ∆BCF

D is mid-point of BC and DG || BF

∴ G is mid-point of FC

∴ FG = GC …(i)

From (i) and (ii)

AF = FG = GC = AC

But AC = 10.5 cm

∴ AF = AC = x 10.5 = 3.5 cm (b)

Question 30.

ABCD is a parallelogram and E is the mid-point of BC. DE and AB when produced meet at F. Then, AF =

Solution:

In ||gm ABCD, E is mid-point of BC DE and AB are produced to meet at F

∵ E is mid point of BC

∴ BE = EC

In ∆BEF and ∆CDE

BE = EC

∠BEF = ∠CED (Vertically opposite angle)

and ∠EBF = ∠ECD (Alternate angles)

∴ ∆BEF ≅ ∆CDE (ASA criterian)

∴ DC = BF

But DC = AB

∴ AB = BF

AF = AB + BF = AB + AB

= 2AB (b)

Question 31.

In a quadrilateral ABCD, ∠A + ∠C is 2 times ∠B + ∠D. If ∠A = 140° and ∠D = 60°, then ∠B =

(a) 60°

(b) 80°

(c) 120°

(d) None of these

Solution:

In quadrilateral ABCD

⇒ ∠A + ∠C = 2(∠B + ∠D)

⇒ ∠A + ∠C = 2∠B + 2∠D

Adding 2∠A + 2∠C both sides

2∠A + 2∠C + ∠A + ∠C = 2∠A + 2∠B + 2∠C + 2∠D

⇒ 3∠A + 3∠C = 2(∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D)

⇒ 3(∠A + ∠C) = 2 x 360° = 720°

∴ ∠A + ∠C = = 240°

⇒ 40° + ∠C = 240° (∵ ∠A = 40°)

∠C = 240° – 40° = 200°

Now 2(∠B + ∠D) = ∠A + ∠C = 240°

∠B + ∠D = = 120°

∴ ∠B = 60° = 120°

∴ ∠B = 60° (a)

Question 32.

The diagonals AC and BD of a rectangle ABCD intersect each other at P. If ∠ABD = 50°, then ∠DPC =

(a) 70°

(b) 90°

(c) 80°

(d) 100°

Solution:

In rectangle ABCD, diagonals AC and BD intersect each other at P

∠ABD = 50°

∴ ∠CAB = ∠ABD = 50° (∵ AP = BP)

Now in ∆APB

∠CAB + ∠ABD + ∠APB = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

⇒ ∠PAB + ∠PBA + ∠APB = 180°

⇒ 50° + 50° + ∠APB = 180°

⇒ ∠APB = 180° – 50° – 50° = 80°

But ∠DPC = ADB (Vertically opposite angles)

∴ ∠DPC = 80° (c)
