    NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 3 Understanding Quadrilaterals Exercise: Angle Sum Property

    Q1 Take any quadrilateral, say ABCD (Fig 3.4). Divide it into two triangles, by drawing a diagonal. You get six angles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Use the angle-sum property of a triangle and argue how the sum of the measures of and amounts to 180\degree + 180\degree = 360\degree .

    1643706688938

    Answer:

    As shown in \triangle ACD,

    \angle 1 + \angle 2+\angle 3 = 180\degree

    As shown in \triangle ABC,

    \angle 4 + \angle 5+\angle 6 = 180\degree

    \angle A + \angle B +\angle C + \angle D= (\angle 1+\angle 4) +\angle 6 + (\angle 2+\angle 5) + \angle 3 ( Since, \angle A = (\angle 1+\angle 4) , \angle B = \angle 6 , \angle C = (\angle 2+\angle 5) ,

    \angle D = \angle 3 )

    \angle A + \angle B +\angle C + \angle D= (\angle 1+\angle 2 +\angle 3) + (\angle 4+\angle 5 + \angle 6)

    = 180\degree + 180\degree

    = 360\degree

    Hence proved, the sum of the measures of \angle A,\angle B,\angle C and
    \angle D amounts to 180\degree + 180\degree = 360\degree .

    Q2 Take four congruent card-board copies of any quadrilateral ABCD, with angles as shown [Fig 3.5 (i)]. Arrange the copies as shown in the figure, where angles ∠1, ∠2, ∠3, ∠4 meet at a point [Fig 3.5 (ii)].

    1643706755857

    What can you say about the sum of the angles ∠1, ∠2, ∠3 and ∠4?

    [Note: We denote the angles by ∠1, ∠2, ∠3, etc., and their respective measures by m∠1, m∠2, m∠3, etc.]

    The sum of the measures of the four angles of a quadrilateral is___________.
    You may arrive at this result in several other ways also.

    Answer:

    As we know the sum of all four angles of a quadrilateral is 360\degree .

    \angle 1,\angle 2,\angle 3,\angle 4 are four angles of quadrilateral ABCD.

    Hence, the sum of these angles is 360\degree = \angle 1+\angle 2+\angle 3+\angle 4

    Angles ∠1, ∠2, ∠3, ∠4 meet at a point and sum of these angles is 360\degree = \angle 1+\angle 2+\angle 3+\angle 4 .

    Q4 These quadrilaterals were convex. What would happen if the quadrilateral is not convex? Consider quadrilateral ABCD. Split it into two triangles and find the sum of the interior angles (Fig 3.7).

    1643706874150 Answer:

    1643706885559

    Draw a line matching points B and D.Line BD divides ABCD in two triangles . \triangle BCD and \triangle ABD .

    Sum of angles of \triangle BCD = \angle DBC + \angle BDC + \angle C = 180\degree \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \left ( 1 \right )

    Sum of angles of \triangle ABD = \angle ADB + \angle ABD + \angle A = 180\degree \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \cdot \left ( 2\right )

    Here, \angle ADB + \angle BDC = \angle D

    \angle DBC + \angle ABD = \angle B

    Adding equation 1 and equation 2,

    (\angle DBC + \angle BDC + \angle C ) + (\angle ADB + \angle ABD + \angle A ) = 360\degree { \angle ADB + \angle BDC = \angle D and

    i.e. \angle A + \angle B +\angle C +\angle D = 360\degree . \angle DBC + \angle ABD = \angle B }

    The sum of the interior angles in a quadilateral,

    \angle A + \angle B +\angle C +\angle D = 360\degree

    Q2 (i) Find the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of 9 sides

    Answer:

    A regular polygon of 9 sides has all sides, interior angles and exterior angles equal.

    Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = 360\degree

    Let the interior angle be A.

    Sum of exterior angles of 9 sided polygon = 9 \ast A = 360\degree

    Exterior angles of 9 sided polygon = A= 360\degree \div 9

    A= 40\degree

    Hence, the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of 9 sides is 40\degree

    Q2 (ii) Find the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of 15 sides

    Answer:

    A regular polygon of 15 sides has all sides, interior angles and exterior angles equal.

    Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = 360\degree

    Let the interior angle be A.

    Sum of exterior angles of 15 sided polygon = 15 \ast A = 360\degree

    Exterior angles of 15 sided polygon = A= 360\degree \div 15

    A= 24\degree

    Hence, the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of 15 sides is 24\degree

    Q3 How many sides does a regular polygon have if the measure of an exterior angle is 24°?

    Answer:

    The measure of an exterior angle is 24°

    A regular polygon has all exterior angles equal.

    Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = 360\degree

    Let a number of sides be X.

    Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = X \ast 24\degree = 360\degree

    Exterior angles of 15 sided polygon = X= 360\degree \div 24\degree

    X= 15

    Hence, 15 sided regular polygon have measure of an exterior angle 24°

    Q4 How many sides does a regular polygon have if each of its interior angles is 165°?

    Answer:

    The measure of each interior angle is 165°

    So, measure of each exterior angle = 180°-165° = 15°

    Regular polygon has all exterior angles equal.

    Let number of sides of polygon = n

    Sum of Exterior angles of a polygon = 360\degree

    \left ( n \right )\ast 15\degree= 360\degree

    n = 24

    Hence,regular polygon having each of its interior angles is 165° has 24 sides.

    Q5 (a) Is it possible to have a regular polygon with measure of each exterior angle as 22°?

    Answer:

    The measure of an exterior angle is 22°

    A regular polygon has all exterior angles equal.

    Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = 360\degree

    Let the number of sides be X.

    Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = X \ast 22\degree = 360\degree

    Exterior angles of 15 sided polygon = X= 360\degree \div 22\degree

    X= 16.36

    Hence, the side of a polygon should be an integer but as shown above, the side is not an integer. So,it is not possible to have a regular polygon with the measure of each exterior angle as 22o.

    Q5 (b) Can it be an interior angle of a regular polygon? Why?

    Answer:

    The measure of an interior angle is 22°

    A regular polygon has all interior angles equal.

    Let the number of sides and number of interior angles be n.

    Sum of interior angles of a polygon = \left ( n-2 \right )\ast 180\degree

    Sum of interior angles of a polygon = \left ( n-2 \right )\ast 180\degree = \left ( n \right )\ast 22\degree

    \left ( n \right )\ast 180\degree-\left ( 2 \right )\ast 180\degree=\left ( n \right )\ast 22\degree

    \left ( n \right )\ast 180\degree-\left ( n \right )\ast 22\degree= 360\degree

    \left ( n \right )\ast 158\degree= 360\degree

    n = 2.28

    The number of sides of a polygon should be an integer but since it is not an integer.So, it cannot be a regular polygon with interior angle as 22o

    Q6 (a) What is the minimum interior angle possible for a regular polygon? Why?

    Answer:

    Consider a polygon with the lowest number of sides i.e. 3.

    Sum of interior angles of 3 sided polygon = \left ( 3-2 \right )\ast 180\degree=180\degree

    Interior angles of a regular polygon are equal = A .

    \therefore A+A+A=180\degree

    3\ast A=180\degree

    A=60\degree

    Hence,the minimum interior angle possible for a regular polygon is 60\degree .

    Q6 (b) What is the maximum exterior angle possible for a regular polygon?

    Answer:

    Let there be a polygon with the minimum number of sides i.e. 3.

    Exterior angles an equilateral triangle has a maximum measure.

    Q4 Draw a rough figure of a quadrilateral that is not a parallelogram but has exactly two opposite angles
    of equal measure.

    Answer:

    1643712912618

    The above-shown figure shows two opposite angles equal. \angle B=\angle D .

    Q5 The measures of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are in the ratio 3 : 2. Find the measure of each of the angles of the parallelogram.

    Answer:

    The measures of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are in the ratio 3 : 2.

    Sum of adjacent angles is 180\degree .

    \therefore 3\times x+2\times x = 180\degree

    5\times x = 180\degree

    x = 36\degree

    Hence, angles are 2\times 36\degree=72\degree and 3\times 36\degree=108\degree .

    Let there be a parallelogram ABCD then, \angle A=\angle C=108\degree and \angle B=\angle D=72\degree . (Opposite angles are equal).

    Q6 Two adjacent angles of a parallelogram have equal measure. Find the measure of each of the angles of the parallelogram.

    Answer:

    Given: Two adjacent angles of a parallelogram have equal measure = \angle A= \angle B .

    \angle A+ \angle B =180\degree ( adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary)

    2\times \angle A =180\degree

    \angle A =90\degree

    \therefore \angle A=\angle B =90\degree

    \angle A=\angle C =90\degree and \angle B=\angle D =90\degree ( Opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal)

    Hence, \angle A=\angle B=\angle C=\angle D =90\degree


    Q7 The adjacent figure HOPE is a parallelogram. Find the angle measures x, y and z . State the properties you use to find them.

    1643712941421

    Answer:

    The adjacent figure HOPE is a parallelogram.

    \angle HOP +70\degree = 180\degree (linear pairs)

    \angle HOP = 110\degree

    x= \angle HOP = 110\degree (opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal)

    \angle HOP +\angle EHO = 180\degree ( adjacent angles are supplementary )

    110\degree +(40\degree+z) = 180\degree

    z = 180\degree - 150\degree

    z = 30\degree

    y= 40\degree (Alternate interior angles are equal)

    Q8 (i) The following figures GUNS and RUNS are parallelograms. Find x and y . (Lengths are in cm)

    3\times x=18

    x=18\div 3

    x=6

    UG\:=\:NS

    3\times Y-1=26

    3\times Y=27

    Y=9

    Hence, x=6 cm and Y=9 cm.

    Q8 (ii) The following figures GUNS and RUNS are parallelograms. Find x and y . (Lengths are in cm)

    1643712998474

    Answer:

    Diagonals of a parallelogram intersect each other.

    y+7=20

    y=20-7

    y=13

    x+y=16

    x=16-13

    x=3

    Hence, x=3 cm and y=13 cm.


    Q9 In the above figure both RISK and CLUE are parallelograms. Find the value of x .

    \angle KSI = 180\degree-120\degree

    \angle KSI = 60\degree

    \angle CLU=\angle UEC = 70\degree (oppsite angles are equal)

    x+ \angle UEC+\angle KSI = 180\degree (sum of angles of a triangle is 180\degree )

    x+ 70\degree+60\degree = 180\degree

    x=180\degree -130\degree

    x=50\degree

    Q10 Explain how this figure is a trapezium. Which of its two sides are parallel? (Fig 3.32)

    1643713112417

    Answer:

    Given, \angle M+\angle L=100\degree+80\degree = 180\degree .

    A transverse line is intersecting two lines such that the sum of angles on the same side of the transversal line is 180\degree .

    And hence, lines KL and MN are parallel to each other.

    Quadrilateral KLMN has a pair of parallel lines so it is a trapezium.

    Q11 Find m\angle C in Fig 3.33 if \overline{AB} || \overline{DC} .

    1643713142883

    Answer:

    Given , \overline{AB} || \overline{DC}

    \angle B+\angle C=180\degree (Angles on same side of transversal)

    120\degree+\angle C=180\degree

    \angle C=180\degree - 120\degree

    \angle C=60\degree

    Hence, m\angle C=60\degree .

    Q12 Find the measure of \angle P and \angle S if \overline {SP} || \overline {RQ} in Fig 3.34.
    (If you find m\angle R , is there more than one method to find m\angle P ?)

    Screenshot%20(74)

    Answer:

    Given, \overline {SP} || \overline {RQ}

    \angle P+\angle Q=180\degree (angles on the same side of transversal)

    \angle P=180\degree-130\degree

    \angle P=50\degree

    \angle R+\angle S=180\degree (angles on the same side of transversal)

    \angle S=180\degree-90\degree

    \angle S=90\degree

    Yes, to find m\angle P there is more than one method.

    PQRS is quadrilateral so the sum of all angles is 360

    \angle P+\angle Q+\angle R+\angle S=360\degree

    and we know \angle Q,\:\angle R ,\:\angle S

    so put values of \angle Q,\:\angle R ,\:\angle S and we get a measurement of \angle P

    NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 3 Understanding Quadrilaterals - Topic: Squares

    Q1 Take a square sheet, say PQRS (Fig 3.42). Fold along both the diagonals. Are their mid-points the same? Check if the angle at O is 90° by using a set-square. This verifies the property stated.

    Property: The diagonals of a square are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

    1643713324883

    Answer:

    PO = OR ( Square is a type of parallelogram)

    By SSS congruency rule, \triangle POS and \triangle ROS are congruent triangles.

    \triangle POS\cong \triangle ROS

    \therefore \angle POS = \angle ROS

    & \angle POS + \angle ROS = 180\degree

    2\times \angle ROS = 180\degree

    \angle ROS = 90\degree

    Hence, \angle O = 90\degree .

    Thus,we can say that the diagonals of a square are perpendicular bisectors of each other
