5. In the below Fig, ∠AOC and ∠BOC form a linear pair. if a  2b = 30°, find a and b.
Solution
Given that,
∠AOC and ∠BOC form a linear pair
If a  2b = 30°
∠AOC = a°, ∠BOC = b°
∴ a + b = 180° ...(i)
Given a  2b = 30°...(ii)
By subtracting (i) and (ii)
∴ a + b = 180° ...(i)
Given a  2b = 30°...(ii)
By subtracting (i) and (ii)
a + b  a + 2b = 180°  30°
⇒ 3b = 150°
⇒ b = 150°/3
⇒ b = 150°/3
⇒ b = 50°
Hence a  2b = 30°
a  2(50)° = 30° [∵ b = 50°]
Hence a  2b = 30°
a  2(50)° = 30° [∵ b = 50°]
a = 30° + 100°
a = 130°
∴ a = 130° , b = 50° .
a = 130°
∴ a = 130° , b = 50° .

8. In below fig, determine the value of x.
Solution
Since sum of all the angles round a point is equal to 360° . Therefore
⇒ 3x + 3x + 150 + x = 360°⇒ 7x = 360°  150°
⇒ 7x = 210°
⇒ x = 210°/7
⇒ x = 30°
9. In the below fig, AOC is a line, find x.
Solution
Since ∠AOB and ∠BOC are linear pairs
∠AOB + ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ 70° + 2x° = 180°
⇒ 2x° = 180°  70°
⇒ 2x = 110°
⇒ x = 110°/2
⇒ x = 55°
10. In the below fig, POS is a line, find x.
Solution
Since ∠POQ and ∠QOS are linear pairs
∠POQ + ∠QOS = 180°
⇒ ∠POQ + ∠QOR + ∠SOR = 180°
⇒ 60° + 4x° + 40° = 180°
⇒ 4x° = 180°  100°
⇒ 4x° = 80°
⇒ x =20°
⇒ 4x° = 80°
⇒ x =20°
11. In the below fig, ACB is a line such that ∠DCA = 5x and ∠DCB = 4x. Find the value of x.
Solution
Here, ∠ACD + ∠BCD = 180°
[Since ∠ACD, ∠BCD are linear pairs]
∠ACD = 5x, ∠BCD = 4x
⇒ 5x +4x = 180°
⇒ 9x = 180°
⇒ 5x +4x = 180°
⇒ 9x = 180°
⇒ x = 20°
∴ x = 20°
∴ x = 20°
12. Given ∠POR = 3x and ∠QOR =2x + 10, find the value of x for which POQ will be a line.

16. In below fig, OP, OQ, OR and OS arc four rays. Prove that :
∠POQ + ∠QOR + ∠SOR + ∠POS = 360°
Solution
Given that
OP, OQ, OR and OS are four rays
You need to produce any of the ray OP, OQ, OR, and OS backwards to a point in the figure.
Let us produce ray OQ backwards to a point
T so that TOQ is a line
Ray OP stands on the TOQ
Since ∠TOP, ∠POQ is linear pair
∠TOP, + ∠POQ = 180° ...(1)
Similarly, ray OS stands on the line TOQ
∠TOS + ∠SOQ = 180° ...(2)
But ∠SOQ = ∠SOR + ∠QOR
So, (2), becomes
∠TOS + ∠SOR + ∠OQR = 180°
Now, adding (1) and (3) you get
∠TOP + ∠POQ + ∠TOS + ∠SOR + ∠QOR = 360°
⇒ ∠TOP + ∠TOS = ∠POS
∴ (4) becomes
∴ (4) becomes
∠POQ + ∠QOR + ∠SOR + ∠POS = 360°
