Exercise 8.3 Solutions
1. In the below fig, lines l_{1} and l_{2} intersect at O, forming angles as shown in the figure. If x = 45, Find the values of x, y, z and u.
Solution
Given that
x = 45° , y = ? , z = ?, u = ?
Vertically opposite sides are equal
∴ z = x = 45°
z and u angles are linear pair of angles
∴ z + u = 180°
z = 180°  4
⇒ u = 180°  x
⇒ u = 180°  45° [∵ x = 45°]
⇒ u = 135°
x and y angles are linear pair of angles
∴ x + y = 180°
y = 180°  x
⇒ y = 180°  45°
⇒ y = 135°
∴ x = 45°, y = 135°, z = 135° and u = 45°
2. In the below fig, three coplanar lines intersect at a point O, forming angles as shown in the figure. Find the values of x, y, z and u.
SolutionVertically opposite angles are equal
So ∠BOD = z = 90°
∠ DOF = y = 50°
Now, x + y + z = 180° [Linear pair]
⇒ x + y + z = 180°
⇒ 90° + 50° + x = 180°
⇒ x = 180°  140°
⇒ x = 40°
3. In the given fig, find the values of x, y and z.
From the given figure
∠y = 25° [∵ vertically opposite angles are equal]
Now
∠x + ∠y = 180° [Linear pair of angles are x and y]
⇒ ∠x = 180°  25°
⇒ ∠x = 155°
Also
∠z = ∠x 155° [Vertically opposite angle]
∠y = 25°
∠x = ∠z = 155°
4. In the below fig, find the values of x.
Solution
Vertically opposite angles are equal
∠AOE = ∠BOF = 5x
Linear pair
∠COA + ∠AOE + ∠EOD = 180°
⇒ 3x + 5x + 2x = 180°
⇒ 10x = 180°
⇒ x = 18°
5. Prove that the bisectors of a pair of vertically opposite angles are in the same straight line.
Solution
Given,
Lines AOB and COD intersect at point O such that
∠AOC = ∠BOD
Also OE is the bisector ∠ADC and OF is the bisector ∠BOD
To prove : EOF is a straight line vertically opposite angles is equal
∠AOD = ∠BOC = 5x ...(1)
Also ∠AOC + ∠BOD
⇒ 2∠AOE = 2∠DOF ...(2)
Sum of the angles around a point is 360°
⇒ 2∠AOD + 2∠AOE + 2∠DOF = 360
⇒ ∠AOD + ∠AOF + ∠DOF = 180
From this we conclude that EOF is a straight line.
Given that :  AB and CD intersect each other at O
OE bisects ∠COB
To prove: ∠AOF = ∠DOF
Proof: OE bisects ∠COB
∠COE = ∠EOB = x
Vertically opposite angles are equal
∠BOE = ∠AOF = x ...(1)
∠COE = ∠DOF = x ...(2)
From (1) and (2)
∠AOF = ∠DOF = x
6. If one of the four angles formed by two intersecting lines is a right angle, then show that each of the four angles is a right angle.
Solution
Given, AB and CD are two lines intersecting at O such that
∠ BOC = 90°
∠AOC = 90° , ∠AOD = 90° and ∠BOD = 90°
Proof:
Given that ∠BOC = 90°
Vertically opposite angles are equal
7. In the below fig, rays AB and CD intersect at O.
(i) Determine y when x = 60°
(ii) Determine x when y = 40°
Solution
(i) Given x = 60°
y = ?
∠AOC, ∠BOC are linear pair of angles
∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ 2x + y = 180°
⇒ 2×60° + y = 180° [∵ x = 60°]
⇒ y = 180°  120°
⇒ y = 60°
(ii) Given y = 40°, x = ?
∠AOC and ∠BOC are linear pair of angles
∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180°
2x + y = 180°
⇒ 2x + 40 = 180°
⇒ 2x = 140°
⇒ x = 140°/2
⇒ x = 70°
8.In the below fig, lines AB, CD and EF intersect at O. Find the measures of ∠AOC, ∠COF, ∠DOE and ∠BOF.
Solution
∠AOE and ∠EOB are linear pair of angles
9. AB, CD and EF are three concurrent lines passing through the point O such that OF bisects ∠BOD. If ∠BOF = 35 ,find ∠BOC and ∠AOD.
Solution
10. In below figure, lines AB and CD intersect at O. If ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° and ∠BOD = 40°, find ∠BOE and reflex ∠COE. Solution
Given that
∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70° and ∠BOD = 40°
∠BOE = ?
Here, ∠BOD and ∠AOC are vertically opposite angles
∠BOD = ∠AOC = 40°
Given ∠AOC + ∠BOE = 70°
40° + ∠BOF = 70°
∠BOF = 70° 40°
∠BOE = 30°
∠AOC and ∠BOC are linear pair of angles
∠AOC + ∠COF + ∠BOE = 180°
∠COE = 180°  30°  40°
⇒ ∠COE = 110°
∴ Reflex ∠COE = 360°  110° = 250°.
