Here,

∠CMQ + ∠QMD = 180° are the linear pair

= ∠QMD = 180° – 60°

= 120°

Corresponding angles:

∠QMD = ∠MLB = 120°

Question: 3In Figure, AB and CD are parallel lines intersected by a transversal by a transversal PQ at L and M respectively. If ∠LMD = 35° find ∠ALM and ∠PLA.

Solution:Given that,

∠LMD = 35°

∠LMD and ∠LMC is a linear pair

∠LMD + ∠LMC = 180°

= ∠LMC = 180° – 35°

= 145°

So, ∠LMC = ∠PLA = 145°

And, ∠LMC = ∠MLB = 145°

∠MLB and ∠ALM is a linear pair

∠MLB + ∠ALM = 180°

= ∠ALM = 180° – 145°

= ∠ALM = 35°

Therefore, ∠ALM = 35°, ∠PLA = 145°.

Solution:Given that,

∠1 = 40°

∠1 and ∠2 is a linear pair

= ∠1 + ∠2 = 180°

= ∠2 = 180° – 40°

= ∠2 = 140°

∠2 and ∠6 is a corresponding angle pair

So, ∠6 = 140°

∠6 and ∠5 is a linear pair

= ∠6 + ∠5 = 180°

= ∠5 = 180° – 140°

= ∠5 = 40°

∠3 and ∠5 are alternative interior angles

So, ∠5 = ∠3 = 40°

∠3 and ∠4 is a linear pair

= ∠3 + ∠4 = 180°

= ∠4 = 180° – 40°

= ∠4 = 140°

∠4 and ∠6 are a pair interior angles

So, ∠4 = ∠6 = 140°

∠3 and ∠7 are pair of corresponding angles

So, ∠3 = ∠7 = 40°

Therefore, ∠7 = 40°

∠4 and ∠8 are a pair corresponding angles

So, ∠4 = ∠8 = 140°

Therefore, ∠8 = 140°

So, ∠1 = 40°, ∠2 = 140°, ∠3 = 40°, ∠4 = 140°, ∠5 = 40°, ∠6 = 140°, ∠7 = 40°, ∠8 = 140°

We know that,

∠1 + ∠2 = 180° → (linear pair)

= ∠2 = 180° – 75°

= ∠2 = 105°

here, ∠1 = ∠5 = 75° are corresponding angles

∠5 = ∠7 = 75° are vertically opposite angles.

∠2 = ∠6 = 105° are corresponding angles

∠6 = ∠8 = 105° are vertically opposite angles

∠2 = ∠4 = 105° are vertically opposite angles

So, ∠1 = 75°, ∠2 = 105°, ∠3 = 75°, ∠4 = 105°, ∠5 = 75°, ∠6 = 105°, ∠7 = 75°, ∠8 = 105°

We know that,

Linear pair,

∠QMD + ∠QMC = 180°

= ∠QMC = 180° – ∠QMD

= ∠QMC = 180° – 100°

= ∠QMC = 80°

Corresponding angles,

∠DMQ = ∠BLM = 100°

∠CMQ = ∠ALM = 80°

Vertically Opposite angles,

∠DMQ = ∠CML = 100°

∠BLM = ∠PLA = 100°

∠CMQ = ∠DML = 80°

∠ALM = ∠PLB = 80°

Question: 8In Figure, l ∥ m and p || q. Find the values of x, y, z, t.

Solution:Give that, angle is 80°

∠z and 80° are vertically opposite angles

= ∠z = 80°

∠z and ∠t are corresponding angles

= ∠z = ∠t

Therefore, ∠t = 80°

∠z and ∠y are corresponding angles

= ∠z = ∠y

Therefore, ∠y = 80°

∠x and ∠y are corresponding angles

= ∠y = ∠x

Therefore, ∠x = 80°

Question: 9In Figure, line l ∥ m, ∠1 = 120° and ∠2 = 100°, find out ∠3 and ∠4.

Solution:Given that, ∠1 = 120° and ∠2 = 100°

∠1 and ∠5 a linear pair

= ∠1 + ∠5 = 180°

= ∠5 = 180° – 120°

= ∠5 = 60°

Therefore, ∠5 = 60°

∠2 and ∠6 are corresponding angles

= ∠2 = ∠6 = 100°

Therefore, ∠6 = 100°

∠6 and ∠3 a linear pair

= ∠6 + ∠3 = 180°

= ∠3 = 180° – 100°

= ∠3 = 80°

Therefore, ∠3 = 80°

By, angles of sum property

= ∠3 + ∠5 + ∠4 = 180°

= ∠4 = 180° – 80° – 60°

= ∠4 = 40°

Therefore, ∠4 = 40°

Question: 10In Figure, l ∥ m. Find the values of a, b, c, d. Give reasons.

Solution:Given that, l ∥ m

Vertically opposite angles,

∠a = 110°

Corresponding angles,

∠a = ∠b

Therefore, ∠b = 110°

Vertically opposite angle,

∠d = 85°

Corresponding angles,

∠d = ∠c

Therefore, ∠c = 85°

Hence, ∠a = 110°, ∠b = 110°, ∠c = 85°, ∠d = 85°

Question: 11In Figure, AB ∥ CD and ∠1 and ∠2 are in the ratio of 3: 2. Determine all angles from 1 to 8.

Solution:Given that,

∠1 and ∠2 are 3: 2

Let us take the angles as 3x, 2x

∠1 and ∠2 are linear pair

= 3x + 2x = 180°

= 5x = 180°

= x = 180°/5

= x = 36°

Therefore, ∠1 = 3x = 3(36) = 108°

∠2 = 2x = 2(36) = 72°

∠1 and ∠5 are corresponding angles

= ∠1 = ∠5

Therefore, ∠5 = 108°

∠2 and ∠6 are corresponding angles

= ∠2 = ∠6

Therefore, ∠6 = 72°

∠4 and ∠6 are alternate pair of angles

= ∠4 = ∠6 = 72°

Therefore, ∠4 = 72°

∠3 and ∠5 are alternate pair of angles

= ∠3 = ∠5 = 108°

Therefore, ∠5 = 108°

∠2 and ∠8 are alternate exterior of angles

= ∠2 = ∠8 = 72°

Therefore, ∠8 = 72°

∠1 and ∠7 are alternate exterior of angles

= ∠1 = ∠7 = 108°

Therefore, ∠7 = 108°

Hence, ∠1 = 108°, ∠2 = 72°, ∠3 = 108°, ∠4 = 72°, ∠5 = 108°, ∠6 = 72°, ∠7 = 108°, ∠8 = 72°

Solution:Linear pair,

= ∠4 + 60° = 180°

= ∠4 = 180° – 60∘

= ∠4 = 120°

∠4 and ∠1 are corresponding angles

= ∠4 = ∠1

Therefore, ∠1 = 120°

∠1 and ∠2 are corresponding angles

= ∠2 = ∠1

Therefore, ∠2 = 120°

∠2 and ∠3 are vertically opposite angles

= ∠2 = ∠3

Therefore, ∠3 = 120°

Question: 13In Figure, if l ∥ m ∥ n and ∠1 = 60°, find ∠2

Solution:Given that,

Corresponding angles:

∠1 = ∠3

= ∠1 = 60°

Therefore, ∠3 = 60°

∠3 and ∠4 are linear pair

= ∠3 + ∠4 = 180°

= ∠4 = 180° – 60°

= ∠4 = 120°

∠3 and ∠4 are alternative interior angles

= ∠4 = ∠2

Therefore, ∠2 = 120°

Question: 14In Figure, if AB ∥ CD and CD ∥ EF, find ∠ACE

Solution:Given that,

Sum of the interior angles,

= ∠CEF + ∠ECD = 180°

= 130° + ∠ECD = 180°

= ∠ECD = 180° – 130°

= ∠ECD = 50°

We know that alternate angles are equal

= ∠BAC = ∠ACD

= ∠BAC = ∠ECD + ∠ACE

= ∠ACE = 70° – 50°

= ∠ACE = 20°

Therefore, ∠ACE = 20°

Question: 15In Figure, if l ∥ m, n ∥ p and ∠1 = 85°, find ∠2.

Solution:Given that, ∠1 = 85°

∠1 and ∠3 are corresponding angles

So, ∠1 = ∠3

= ∠3 = 85°

Sum of the interior angles

= ∠3 + ∠2 = 180°

= ∠2 = 180° – 85°

= ∠2 = 95°

Question: 16In Figure, a transversal n cuts two lines l and m. If ∠1 = 70° and ∠7 = 80°, is l ∥ m?

Solution:We know that if the alternate exterior angles of the two lines are equal, then the lines are parallel.

Here, ∠1 and ∠7 are alternate exterior angles, but they are not equal

= ∠1 ≠ ∠7 ≠ 80°

Question: 17In Figure, a transversal n cuts two lines l and m such that ∠2 = 65° and ∠8 = 65°. Are the lines parallel?

Solution:vertically opposite angels,

∠2 = ∠3 = 65°

∠8 = ∠6 = 65°

Therefore, ∠3 = ∠6

Hence, l ∥ m

Question: 18In Figure, Show that AB ∥ EF.

Solution:We know that,

∠ACD = ∠ACE + ∠ECD

= ∠ACD = 35° + 22°

= ∠ACD = 57° = ∠BAC

Thus, lines BA and CD are intersected by the line AC such that, ∠ACD = ∠BAC

So, the alternate angles are equal

Therefore, AB ∥ CD — 1

Now,

∠ECD + ∠CEF = 35° + 45° = 180°

This, shows that sum of the angles of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal CE is 180 degrees

So, they are supplementary angles

Therefore, EF ∥ CD ——- 2

From eq 1 and 2

We can say that, AB ∥ EF

Question: 19In Figure, AB ∥ CD. Find the values of x, y, z.

Solution:Linear pair,

= ∠x + 125° = 180°

= ∠x + ∠z = 180°

= ∠x + 125° = 180°

= ∠x = 180° – 125°

= ∠x = 55°

Adjacent interior angles

= ∠x + ∠y = 180°

= ∠y + 55° = 180°

= ∠y = 180° – 55°

= ∠y = 125°

Question: 20In Figure, find out ∠PXR, if PQ ∥ RS.

Given, that PQ ∥ RS

∠PXR = ∠XRS + ∠XPR

∠PXR = 50° + 70°

∠PXR = 120°

Therefore, ∠PXR = 120°

∠XLM = (2x - 10) ° and ∠LMQ = (x + 30) °

∠XLM and ∠LMQ are alternate interior angles

= ∠XLM = ∠LMQ

= (2x - 10) ° = (x + 30) °

= 2x – x = 30° + 10°

= x = 40°

Therefore, x = 40°

(iii) ∠XLM = ∠PML, find ∠ALY

∠XLM = ∠PML

Sum of interior angles is 180 degrees

= ∠XLM + ∠PML = 180°

= ∠XLM + ∠XLM = 180°

= 2∠XLM = 180°

= ∠XLM = 180°/2

= ∠XLM = 90°

∠XLM and ∠ALY are vertically opposite angles

Therefore, ∠ALY = 90°

(iv) ∠ALY = (2x - 15) °, ∠LMQ = (x + 40) °, find x.

∠ALY and ∠LMQ are corresponding angles

= ∠ALY = ∠LMQ

= 2x – x = 40° + 15°

=x = 55°

Therefore, x = 55°

= 32° + y = 180°

= y = 180° – 32°

= y = 148°

∠ABE = ∠E = 32° – Alternate interior angles
