#### Question 1:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.
The sides of a triangle have lengths (in cm) 10, 6.5 and a, where a is a whole number. The minimum value that a can take is
(a) 6
(b) 5
(c) 3
(d) 4

The sides of a triangle have lengths (in cm) 10, 6.5 and a, where a is a whole number. The minimum value that a can take is
The sum of the lengths of two sides of the triangle should be greater than the third side.
So, a + 6.5 > 10
⇒a > 3.5 > 3
So, the minimum value of a should be 3.

#### Question 2:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.
Triangle DEF of in the given figure is a right triangle with ∠E = 90°.

What type of angles are ∠D and ∠F?
(a) They are equal angles
(b) They form a pair of adjacent angles
(c) They are complementary angles
(d) They are supplementary angles

Triangle DEF in the given figure is a right triangle with ∠E = 90°
Now, ∠D + ∠E + ∠F = 180°
⇒ ∠D +  90° + ∠F = 180°
⇒ â€‹∠D + ∠F = 180° - 90° = 90°
So, they are complementary angles.

#### Question 3:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.
In the given figure, PQ = PS. The value of x is

(a) 35°
(b) 45°
(c) 55°
(d) 70°

In $△\mathrm{PQS}$,
PQ = PS (Given)
$\angle \mathrm{PQS}=\angle \mathrm{PSQ}=70°$ (âˆµ Angles corresponding to equal sides are equal)

In $△\mathrm{PRS}$,
$\angle \mathrm{PSQ}=\angle \mathrm{SPQ}+\angle \mathrm{SRQ}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒70°=x+25°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒x=70°-25°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒x=45°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Hence, the correct answer is option (b).

#### Question 4:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.
In a right-angled triangle, the angles other than the right angle are
(a) obtuse
(b) right
(c) acute
(d) straight

In a right-angled triangle, one of the angles is a right angle, i.e., of 90°.
So, the sum of the other two angles is 90°.
Therefore, the other two angles are less than 90° which means they are acute angles.

Thus, in a right-angled triangle, the angles other than the right angle are acute angles.

â€‹Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

#### Question 5:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.
In an isosceles triangle, one angle is 70°. The other two angles are of
(i) 55° and 55°
(ii) 70° and 40°
(iii) any measure
In the given option(s) which of the above statement(s) are true?
(a) (i) only
(b) (ii) only
(c) (iii) only
(d) (i) and (ii)

In an isosceles triangle, one angle is 70°.
The other two angles are of
(i) 55° and 55°

By Angle Sum Property of Triangle,
70° + 55° + 55° = 180°
⇒ 180° = 180°
Thus, statement (i) is true.

(ii) 70° and 40°
By Angle Sum Property of Triangle,
70° + 70° + 40° = 180°
⇒ 180° = 180°
Thus, statement (ii) is true.

(iii) any measure
Not possible as in an isosceles triangle two angles are equal.
Thus, statement (iii) is false.

So, in the given option(s) the statement(s)  (i) and (ii) are true.

â€‹â€‹Hence, the correct answer is option (d).

#### Question 6:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.
In a triangle, one angle is of 90°. Then
(i) The other two angles are of 45° each
(ii) In remaining two angles, one angle is 90° and other is 45°
(iii) Remaining two angles are complementary
In the given option(s) which is true?
(a) (i) only
(b) (ii) only
(c) (iii) only
(d) (i) and (ii)

In a triangle, one angle is of 90°. Then
(i) The other two angles are of 45° each

By Angle Sum Property of Triangle,
90° + 45° + 45° = 180°
⇒ 180° = 180°
But this is not a trivial solution.
Thus, statement (i) is false.

(ii) In remaining two angles, one angle is 90° and other is 45°
By Angle Sum Property of Triangle,
90° + 90° + 45° = 180°
⇒ 225° ≠ 180°
Thus, statement (ii) is false.

(iii) Remaining two angles are complementary
Let the remaining two angles be x and y such that they are complementary angles.
x + y = 90°
Now,
90° +  x + y = 180°
⇒ 90° + 90° + = 180°
⇒ 180° = 180°
This is a trivia; solution.
Thus, statement (iii) is true.

So, in the given option(s) the statement (iii) is true.

â€‹â€‹Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

#### Question 7:

Since these sides satisfy the Pythagoras theorem, therefore it is right angled triangle.

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

In âˆ†PQR,
(a) PQ – QR > PR
(b) PQ + QR < PR
(c) PQ – QR< PR
(d) PQ + PR< QR

Since the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is always greater than the length of the third side.
∴ In âˆ†PQR,
QR + PR > PQ
⇒ PR > PQ − QR
⇒ PQ − QR < PR

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

#### Question 10:

In âˆ† ABC,
(a) AB + BC > AC
(b) AB + BC < AC
(c) AB + AC < BC

AB + BC > AC

Hence, the correct answer is option (a).

#### Question 11:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.

(a) 25 m
(b) 13 m
(c) 18 m
(d) 17 m

Let AB be the given that tree of height h m, which is broken at D which is 12 m away from its base and the height of the remaining part, i.e., CB = 5 m.

Since AC and CD both represents the same broken part of the tree.
∴  CA = DC = 13 m
Now, AB = BC + CA
h = 5 + 13
h  = 18 m

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

#### Question 12:

In the given question, four options are given, out of which only one is correct. Choose the correct one.

(b) a scalene triangle only
(c) an isosceles right triangle
(d) scalene as well as a right triangle

Given: The triangle ABC formed by AB = 5 cm, BC = 8 cm, AC = 4 cm.

Here,
${\mathrm{AB}}^{2}+{\mathrm{AC}}^{2}={\mathrm{BC}}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒{5}^{2}+{4}^{2}={8}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒25+16=64\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒41\ne 64$

Also, AB ≠ BC ≠ CA
⇒ Triangle ABC is an isosceles triangle.

Thus, the triangle ABC formed by AB = 5 cm, BC = 8 cm, AC = 4 cm is an isosceles triangle only.

Hence, the correct answer is option (a).

#### Question 13:

(a) 3 m
(b) 5 m
(c) 4 m
(d) 11 m

Let BE be the smaller tree and AD be the bigger tree.
AB is the distance between their tops.

So. BE = CD = 4 cm
ED = 4 cm and â€‹AD = 7 cm (Given)
⇒ AC = 3 cm

Also, BC = ED = 4 cm

Thus, the distance between their tops is 5 m.

Hence, the correct answer is option (b).

If length of two sides of a triangle are 6 cm and 10 cm, then the length of the third side can be
(a) 3 cm
(b) 4 cm
(c) 2 cm
(d) 6 cm

Given: The length of two sides of a triangle are 6 cm and 10 cm.

Let the length of the third side be cm.

Since the sum of any two sides of a triangle is always greater than the third side.
x < 6 +10
⇒ x < 16                                                   .....(1)

Also, the difference of any two sides of a triangle is always lesser than the third side.
∴ x > 10 − 6
⇒ x > 4                                                   .....(2)

From (1) and (2), we get

Given: In âˆ†PQR PQ = PR, $\angle \mathrm{QPR}=30°$

Since  PQ = PR
⇒ ∠PQR = ∠PRQ                .....(1)

In âˆ†PQR, by Angle Sum Property of triangle
∠PQR + ∠PRQ + ∠QPR = 180°
⇒ ∠PQR + ∠PQR + 30° = 180°
⇒ 2∠PQR = 150°
⇒ ∠PQR = 75°

Thus,  ∠PQR = ∠PRQ = 75°

$\angle \mathrm{PON}+\angle \mathrm{NPO}+\angle \mathrm{ONP}=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒90°+\angle \mathrm{NPO}+70°=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\angle \mathrm{NPO}=20°$

#### Question 118:

Given: QP|| RT, where PR is a transversal line.
So, ∠x = ∠TRP = 70° (Alternate interior angles)

In $△\mathrm{PQR}$, by Angle Sum Property of triangle
$30°+x+y=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒30°+70°+y=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒y=80°$

Thus, ∠x = 70° and ∠y = 80°.

#### Question 119:

In $△\mathrm{ABC}$, by Exterior angle property
$\angle \mathrm{ABC}+\angle \mathrm{BAC}=115°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒65°+\angle \mathrm{BAC}=115°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\angle \mathrm{BAC}=50°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

#### Question 120:

Thus, the measure of the third angle is 55°.

#### Question 121:

Let the third angle be x.
Then, the other two angles are 4x and 4x, respectively.

By Angle Sum Property of the triangle
$x+4x+4x=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒9x=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒x=20°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore 4x=80°$

Thus, the angles of the triangle are 20°, 80°, and 80°.

#### Question 122:

#### Question 123:

If the sides of a triangle are produced in an order, show that the sum of the exterior angles so formed is 360°.

Exterior ∠2 = Interior ∠B + Interior ∠C             .....(2)
Exterior ∠3 = Interior ∠A + Interior ∠C             .....(3)

Adding (1), (2) and (3), we get
∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 = 2(∠A + ∠B + ∠C)
By angle sum property of a triangle, ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
∴ ∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 = 2 ×180°
∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 = 360°

Hence, the sum of exterior angles is 360°.

#### Question 124:

Given: In âˆ†ABC, if ∠A = ∠C, and exterior angle ABX = 140°.

By Exterior angle property of triangle
$\angle \mathrm{ABX}=\angle \mathrm{B}+\angle \mathrm{C}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒40°=\angle \mathrm{B}+\angle \mathrm{B}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒40°=2\angle \mathrm{B}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒20°=\angle \mathrm{B}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore \angle \mathrm{C}=20°$

By Angle sum property of triangle
$\angle \mathrm{A}+\angle \mathrm{B}+\angle \mathrm{C}=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\angle \mathrm{A}+20°+20°=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\angle \mathrm{A}=140°$

Thus, the angles of the triangles are 20°, 20° and 140°.

$\angle \mathrm{QTS}+\angle \mathrm{STR}+\angle \mathrm{RTP}=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒50°+\angle 2+75°=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\angle 2+125°=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\angle 2=55°$

In $△\mathrm{STR},$ by Angle sum property of triangle
$\angle 2+x+\angle \mathrm{R}=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒55°+x+45°=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒x=80°$

Thus, .

#### Question 127:

Let one of the angles of a triangle be x.
If angles are arranged in descending order. Then, angles will be x, (x -10°) and (x – 20°).

By Angle sum property of triangle
$x+\left(x-10°\right)+\left(x-20°\right)=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒3x-30°=180°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒3x=210°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒x=70°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore \left(x-10°\right)=70°-10°=60°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\left(x-20°\right)=70°-20°=50°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

#### Question 130:

If one angle of a triangle is 60° and the other two angles are in the ratio 1 : 2, find the angles.

Given: One angle of a triangle is 60°.
Let the other two angles be x and 2x.
Since the sum of all angles in a triangle is equal to 180°.
So,
x + 2x + 60° = 180°
3x = 180° − 60°
3x = 120°
x = 40°
So, the other two angles will be x = 40° and 2x = 2 × 40° = 80°.

For a right angled triangle, the sum of square of two shorter sides must be equal to the square of the third side.
Now, 1.52 + 362 = 2.25 + 12.96 = 15.21
Also, (3.9)2 = 15.21
(1.5)2 + (3.6)2 = (3.9)2
Hence, the given sides form a right-angled triangle.

#### Question 139:

Height of a pole is 8 m. Find the length of rope tied with its top from a point on the ground at a distance of 6 m from its bottom.

Given: Height of a pole is 8 m.
Distance between the bottom of the pole and a point on the ground is 6 m.

Let the length of the rope be x m.
AB = Height of the pole
BC = Distance between the bottom of the pole and a point on ground, where rope was tied.

In right-angled MBC, by â€‹Pythagoras theorem
(AC)2 = (AB)2 + (BC)2
⇒ (x)2 = (8)2 + (6)2
⇒ (x)2 = 64 + 36

According to the question,
y = 5x                   ......(1)

According to the angle sum property of a triangle,
600 + x y = 180°
⇒ 60° + x + 5x = 180°                    [From (1)]
⇒ 60° + 6x = 180°
⇒ 6x = 180° − 60°
⇒ 6x = 120°
x = 20°

âˆµ y = 5x
⇒ = 5 × 20° =100°

According to the exterior angle property,
z = 60° + y = 60° + 100° =160°

#### Question 141:

(iii) AC = DB   (by CPCT)

#### Question 154:

In the given figure, QS ⊥ PR, RT ⊥ PQ and QS = RT.
(i) Is âˆ† QSR ≅ âˆ† RTQ? Give reasons.
(ii) Is ∠ PQR = ∠ PRQ? Give reasons.

(i) In âˆ†QSR and âˆ†RTQ
QS = RT (Given)
∠OSR = ∠QTR = 90°
OR = OR (Common side)

By RHS congruence criterion, âˆ†QSR ≅ âˆ†RTQ

(ii) Yes, ∠POR = ∠PRO (by CPCT)

#### Question 155:

Points A and B are on the opposite edges of a pond as shown in the given figure. To find the distance between the two points, the surveyor makes a right-angled triangle as shown. Find the distance AB.

Since âˆ†ACD is a right-angled triangle.
In right-angled âˆ†ADC, by Pythagoras theorem,
(AC)2 = (30)2 + (40)2
(AC)2 = 900 + 1600
(AC)2 = 2500
AC= 50 m

Now, AB = AC − BC = 50 − 12 = 38 m
Hence, the distance AB is 38 m.

#### Question 156:

Two poles of 10 m and 15 m stand upright on a plane ground. If the distance between the tops is 13 m, find the distance between their feet.

Let BC = x m
In right-angled âˆ†ACB,
AB2 = AC2 + BC2 (by Pythagoras theorem)
⇒ (13)2 = (5)2 + x2
⇒ 169 − 25 = x2
⇒ 144 = x2
⇒ x =12 m

Hence, the distance between the feet of the two poles is 12 m.

#### Question 157:

The foot of a ladder is 6 m away from its wall and its top reaches a window 8 m above the ground, (a) Find the length of the ladder. (b) If the ladder is shifted in such a way that its foot is 8 m away from the wall, to what height does its top reach?

(a) Let the length of the ladder be x m.

In right-angled âˆ†ABC, by Pythagoras theorem
AC2 = AB2 + BC2
⇒ (x)2 = (8)2 + (6)2
⇒ (x)= 64 + 36
⇒ x = 10 m

Hence, the length of the ladder is 10 m.

(b) Let the height of the top be x m.

In right angled MCB,
AC2 = AB2 + BC2 [by Pythagoras theorem]
x= (10)2 − (8)2
⇒ x= 100 − 64
⇒ x= 36 m
⇒ x = 6 m

Hence, the height of the top is 6 m.

#### Question 158:

In the given figure, state the three pairs of equal parts in âˆ†ABC and âˆ†EOD. Is âˆ†ABC ≅ âˆ† EOD? Why?
