Question 1

Three angles of a quadrilateral are 75°, 90° and 75°. Find the measure of the fourth angle.

Solution 1

Let the measure of the fourth angle = x° 

For a quadrilateral, sum of four angles = 360° 

x° + 75° + 90° + 75° = 360° 

x° = 360° - 240° 

x° = 120° 

Hence, the measure of fourth angle is 120°.

Question 6

In a rhombus ABCD, the altitude from D to the side AB bisect AB. Find the angle of the rhombus

Solution 6

R-s-aggarwal-and-v-aggarwal Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Quadrilaterals 

Let the altitude from D to the side AB bisect AB at point P.

Join BD.

In ΔAMD and ΔBMD,

AM = BM (M is the mid-point of AB)

AMD = BMD (Each 90°)

MD = MD (common)

ΔAMD ΔBMD (by SAS congruence criterion)

AD = BD (c.p.c.t.)

But, AD = AB (sides of a rhombus)

AD = AB = BD

ΔADB is an equilateral triangle.

A = 60° 

C = A = 60° (opposite angles are equal)

B = 180° - A = 180° - 60° = 120° 

D = B = 120° 

Hence, in rhombus ABCD, A = 60°, B = 120°, C = 60° and D = 120°.

In ΔABC and ΔADC,

AB = AD (sides of a rhombus are equal)

BC = CD (sides of a rhombus are equal)

AC = AC (common)

ΔABC ΔADC (by SSS congruence criterion)

BAC = DAC and BCA = DCA (c.p.c.t.)

AC bisects A as well as C.

Similarly,

In ΔBAD and ΔBCD,

AB = BC (sides of a rhombus are equal)

AD = CD (sides of a rhombus are equal)

BD = BD (common)

ΔBAD ΔBCD (by SSS congruence criterion)

ABD = CBD and ADB = CDB (c.p.c.t.)

Question 13

The angle between two altitudes of a parallelogram through the vertex of an obtuse angle of the parallelogram is 60°. Find the angles of the parallelogram.

Solution 13

R-s-aggarwal-and-v-aggarwal Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Quadrilaterals

DCM = DCN + MCN

90° = DCN + 60° 

DCN = 30° 

In ΔDCN,

DNC + DCN + D = 180° 

90° + 30° + D = 180° 

D = 60° 

B = D = 60° (opposite angles of parallelogram are equal)

A = 180° - B = 180° - 60° = 120° 

C = A = 120° 

Thus, the angles of a parallelogram are 60°, 120°, 60° and 120°.

Question 14

ABCD is rectangle in which diagonal AC bisect A as well as C. Show that (i) ABCD is square, (ii) diagonal BD bisect B as well as D.

Solution 14

R-s-aggarwal-and-v-aggarwal Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Quadrilaterals 

(i) ABCD is a rectangle in which diagonal AC bisects A as well as C.

BAC = DAC ….(i)

And BCA = DCA ….(ii)

Since every rectangle is a parallelogram, therefore

AB DC and AC is the transversal.

BAC = DCA (alternate angles)

DAC = DCA [From (i)]

Thus, in ΔADC,

AD = CD (opposite sides of equal angles are equal)

But, AD = BC and CD = AB (ABCD is a rectangle)

AB = BC = CD = AD

Hence, ABCD is a square.

 

(ii) In ΔBAD and ΔBCD,

AB = CD

AD = BC

BD = BD

ΔBAD ΔBCD (by SSS congruence criterion)

ABD = CBD and ADB = CDB (c.p.c.t.)

Hence, diagonal BD bisects B as well as D.

Question 17

Two parallel lines l and m are intersected by a transversal t. Show that the quadrilateral formed by the bisectors of interior angles is a rectangle.

Solution 17

R-s-aggarwal-and-v-aggarwal Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Quadrilaterals 

l m and t is a transversal.

APR = PRD (alternate angles)

R-s-aggarwal-and-v-aggarwal Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Quadrilaterals

SPR = PRQ (PS and RQ are the bisectors of APR and PRD)

Thus, PR intersects PS and RQ at P and R respectively such that SPR = PRQ i.e., alternate angles are equal.

PS RQ

Similarly, we have SR PQ.

Hence, PQRS is a parallelogram.

Now, BPR + PRD = 180° (interior angles are supplementary)

2QPR + 2QRP = 180° (PQ and RQ are the bisectors of BPR and PRD)

QPR + QRP = 90° 

In ΔPQR, by angle sum property,

PQR + QPR + QRP = 180° 

PQR + 90° = 180° 

PQR = 90° 

Since PQRS is a parallelogram,

PQR = PSR

PSR = 90° 

Now, SPQ + PQR = 180° (adjacent angles in a parallelogram are supplementary)

SPQ + 90° = 180° 

SPQ = 90° 

SRQ = 90° 

Thus, all the interior angles of quadrilateral PQRS are right angles.

Hence, PQRS is a rectangle.

Question 18

K, L, M and N are point on the sides AB, BC, CD and DA respectively of a square ABCD such that AK = BL = CM = DN. Prove that KLMN is a square.

Solution 18

R-s-aggarwal-and-v-aggarwal Solutions Cbse Class 9 Mathematics Chapter - Quadrilaterals 

AK = BL = CM = DN (given)

BK = CL = DM = AN (i)(since ABCD is a square)

In ΔAKN and ΔBLK,

AK = BL (given)

A = B (Each 90°)

AN = BK [From (i)]

ΔAKN ΔBLK (by SAS congruence criterion)

AKN = BLK and ANK = BKL (c.p.c.t.)

But, AKN + ANK = 90° and BLK + BKL = 90° 

AKN + ANK + BLK + BKL = 90° + 90° 

2AKN + 2BKL = 180° 

AKN + BKL = 90° 

NKL = 90° 

Similarly, we have

KLM = LMN = MNK = 90° 

Hence, KLMN is a square.

Solution 21

ABCD is a parallelogram.

Hence, AD || BC.

DAM = AMB (alternate angles)

BAM = AMB (since BAM = DAM)
