Let the number of sides in the polygon be n.

Then,

And,

### Solution 2

The sum of the interior angle=4 times the sum of the exterior angles.

Therefore the sum of the interior angles = 4×360° =1440°.

Now we have

Thus the number of sides in the polygon is 10.

### Solution 3

Let the angles of the pentagon are 4x, 8x, 6x, 4x and 5x.

Thus we can write

Hence the angles of the pentagon are:

4×20= 80, 8×20= 160, 6×20= 120, 4×20= 80, 5×20= 100

### Solution 4

Then we can write

Therefore the measure of each equal angles are 116

### Solution 5

Let the number of sides of the polygon is n and there are k angles with measure 195o.

Therefore we can write:

In this linear equation n and k must be integer. Therefore to satisfy this equation the minimum value of k must be 6 to get n as integer.

Hence the number of sides are: 5 + 6 = 11.

### Solution 6

Let the measure of each equal angles are x.

Then we can write:

Thus the measure of each equal angles are 126o.

### Solution 7

### Solution 1(a)

Correct option: (iv) ∠B + ∠C = 180o

In a trapezium, consecutive angles are supplementary.

Therefore, in trapezium ABCD,

∠B + ∠C = 180o

### Solution 1(b)

Correct option: (iv) an isosceles right-angled triangle

The diagonals of a square bisect each other at right angle.

Hence, OA = OB and AOB = 90o

Therefore, ΔOAB is an isosceles right-angled triangle.

### Solution 1(c)

Correct option: (iii) square

In a square, diagonals are equal and bisect each other at right angles.

### Solution 1(d)

Correct option: (iii) opposite angles are bisected by the diagonals

Each diagonal of a parallelogram bisects the parallelogram but opposite angles of a parallelogram are not bisected by the diagonals.

### Solution 1(e)

Correct option: (ii) rhombus

A quadrilateral whose diagonals bisect each other at right angle is a rhombus.

### Solution 2

(i)True.

This is true, because we know that a rectangle is a parallelogram. So, all the properties of a parallelogram are true for a rectangle. Since the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, the same holds true for a rectangle.

(ii)False

This is not true for any random quadrilateral. Observe the quadrilateral shown below.

Clearly the diagonals of the given quadrilateral do not bisect each other. However, if the quadrilateral was a special quadrilateral like a parallelogram, this would hold true.

(iii)False

Consider a rectangle as shown below.

It is a parallelogram. However, the diagonals of a rectangle do not intersect at right angles, even though they bisect each other.

(iv)True

Since a rhombus is a parallelogram, and we know that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, hence the diagonals of a rhombus too, bisect other.

(v)False

This need not be true, since if the angles of the quadrilateral are not right angles, the quadrilateral would be a rhombus rather than a square.

(vi)True

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and equal.

Since opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel, and all the sides of the rhombus are equal, a rhombus is a parallelogram.

(vii)False

This is false, since a parallelogram in general does not have all its sides equal. Only opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal. However, a rhombus has all its sides equal. So, every parallelogram cannot be a rhombus, except those parallelograms that have all equal sides.

(viii)False

This is a property of a rhombus. The diagonals of a rhombus need not be equal.

(ix)True

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and equal.

A rhombus is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel, and all sides equal.

If in a parallelogram the adjacent sides are equal, it means all the sides of the parallelogram are equal, thus forming a rhombus.

(x)False

Observe the above figure. The diagonals of the quadrilateral shown above bisect each other at right angles, however the quadrilateral need not be a square, since the angles of the quadrilateral are clearly not right angles.

### Solution 3

From the given figure we conclude that

In the figure ABCD is a parallelogram

Therefore

Solving (i), (ii) we have

### Solution 9

Given that the angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio Let the angles be

Therefore the angles are

Since all the angles are of different degrees thus forms a trapezium

### Solution 10

Given AB = 20 cm and AD = 12 cm.

From the above figure, it's evident that ABF is an isosceles triangle with angle BAF = angle BFA = x

So AB = BF = 20

BF = 20

BC + CF = 20

CF = 20 - 12 = 8 cm

## Rectilinear Figures [Quadrilaterals: Parallelogram, Rectangle, Rhombus, Square and Trapezium] Exercise Ex. 14(C)

### Solution 1(a)

Correct option: (ii) parallelogram

In a parallelogram, both the pairs of opposite sides are equal.

### Solution 1(b)

Correct option: (ii) parallelogram

In a parallelogram, both the pairs of opposite angles are equal.

In rectangle and square also, opposite angles are equal and each angle is a right angle.

### Solution 1(c)

Correct option: (i) rectangle

If three angles of a quadrilateral are equal to 90o each, then the fourth angle is also 90o as the sum of angles of a quadrilateral is 360o.

Hence, the quadrilateral is a rectangle as each angle of a rectangle is a right angle.

### Solution 1(d)

Correct option: (iii) not a parallelogram

In a parallelogram, opposite angles are equal and consecutive angles are supplementary.

Hence, if three angles of a quadrilateral are equal, then the quadrilateral is not a parallelogram.

### Solution 1(e)

Correct option: (ii) 30o

ABCD is a square.

BCD = 90o

BEC is an equilateral triangle.

BCE = 60o

Therefore.

ECD = BCD - BCE = 90o - 60o = 30o

### Solution 12

ABCD is a Parallelogram.

Hence opposite sides are parallel and equal.

DC = AB

Also,

DC = AB = 2DP = 2PC.

Now,

DP || AB and AP transversal.

Hence alternate angles are equal

∠DPA = ∠PAB …(1)

Also,

DP || AB and PB transversal.

Hence alternate angles are equal

Hence ∠CPB = ∠PBA … (2)

As a result,

∠DAP = ∠DPA … (3)

Also, in ∆PCB

PC = CB

Hence ∆PCB is isosceles.

As a result,

∠CPB = ∠CBP … (4)

So from (1) and (3),

∠PAB = ∠DAP

Hence AP bisects angle A

And (2) and (4)

∠PBA = ∠CBP

Hence BP bisects angle B

Now in ∆APB, using the angle sum property

∠PAB +∠PBA + ∠APB = 180 …(5)

Also

AD || BC and AB transversal,

Hence interior angles are supplementary

∠DAB + ∠CBA = 180o

Now as AP bisects angle A and BP bisects angle B

2∠DAP + 2∠CBP = 180o … (6)

From (5) and (6)

∠PAB +∠PBA + ∠APB = 2∠DAP + 2∠CBP

Also we have

∠PAB = ∠DAP

∠PBA = ∠CBP

Hence we get

∠DAP + ∠CBP + ∠APB = 2∠DAP + 2∠CBP

∠APB = ∠DAP + ∠CBP

### Solution 1

For (n-1) sided regular polygon:

Let measure of each angle is x.

Therefore

For (n+1) sided regular polygon:

Let measure of each angle is y.

Therefore

Now we have

Thus the value of n is 13.

### Solution 2

(i)

Let the measure of each exterior angle is x and the number of sides is n.

Now we have

(ii)

Thus the number of sides in the polygon is:

### Solution 3

We know that AQCP is a quadrilateral. So sum of all angles must be 360.

x + y + 90 + 90 = 360

x + y = 180

Given x:y = 2:1

So substitute x = 2y

3y = 180

y = 60

x = 120

We know that angle C = angle A = x = 120

Angle D = Angle B = 180 - x = 180 - 120 = 60

Hence, angles of parallelogram are 120, 60, 120 and 60.

### Solution 5

(i)

▭ABCD is a parallelogram

Hence CD || AB, also if we consider AD as transversal, we get interior angles supplementary.

Hence,

Now multiply ½ throughout.

½∠CDA + ½∠BAD = 90 …(1)

Now we have DO and AO as bisectors of ∠CDA and ∠BAD respectively.

Hence,

½∠CDA = ∠ODA

So our equation (1) becomes

Hence, the bisectors of any two adjacent angles intersect at 90o.

(ii)

▭ABCD is a parallelogram

Hence ∠DAB = ∠BCD

Now multiply ½ throughout.

½∠DAB = ½∠DCB …(1)

Now we have AX and CY as bisectors of ∠DAB and ∠DCB respectively.

Hence,

½∠DAB = ∠XAY

½∠BCD = ∠XCY

So our equation (1) becomes

∠XAY = ∠XCY …(2)

Also, XC || YB and YC is transversal, hence alternate angles are equal.

∠XCY = ∠CYB …(3)

From (2) and (3) we have

∠XAY = ∠CYB

Now, these are pair of corresponding angles formed by two lines AX and CY and the transversal AB.

Hence by converse of corresponding angle test, we can say

AX||CY.

Thus, the bisectors of opposite angles are parallel to each other.

### Solution 9(i)

Construction: Join DE

∠DCE = ∠BEC (Alternate angles) (I)

∠DCE = ∠BCE (CE bisects ∠BCD) (II)

Also, BC = AD (Opposite sides of a parallelogram)

And, BE = AE (E is the mid-point of AB)

### Solution 9(ii)

To prove: DE bisects angle ADC

Construction: Join DE

∠ADE = ∠AED (In a triangle, angles opposite to equal sides are equal)

∠AED = ∠EDC (Alternate angles)

### Solution 9(iii)

To prove: angle DEC is a right angle

Construction: Join DE

Construction: Join AY and CX

AX = YC [From (i)]

AX is parallel to YC [From (ii)]
