The measures of two angles of a triangle are 72° and 58°.
Let the third angle be x
Now, the sum of the measures of all the angles of a triangle is 180oâ€‹.
$\therefore$    + 72+ 58o = 180o
⇒ x + 130= 180o
⇒ x = 180oâ€‹ $-$ 130o
⇒ x = 50o
â€‹The measure of the third angle of the triangle is 50oâ€‹.

#### Question 3:

Let the third angle be x
Now, the sum of the measures of all the angles of a triangle is 180oâ€‹.
$\therefore$    + 72+ 58o = 180o

⇒ x = 180oâ€‹ $-$ 130o
⇒ x = 50o
â€‹The measure of the third angle of the triangle is 50oâ€‹.

The angles of a triangle are in the ratio 1:3:5.
Let the measures of the angles of the triangle be (1x), (3x) and (5x)
Sum of the measures of the angles of the triangle = 180o
∴ 1x + 3x + 5x = 180o
⇒ 9x = 180o
⇒ x = 20o
1x = 20o
3x = 60o
â€‹5x = 100o
The measures of the angles are 20o, 60o and 100o

#### Question 4:

The angles of a triangle are in the ratio 1:3:5.
Let the measures of the angles of the triangle be (1x), (3x) and (5x)
Sum of the measures of the angles of the triangle = 180o
∴ 1x + 3x + 5x = 180o

1x = 20o
3x = 60o
â€‹5x = 100o

In a right angle triangle, one of the angles is 90o.
It is given that one of the acute angled of the right angled triangle is 50o.
We know that the sum of the measures of all the angles of a triangle is 180o.
Now, let the third angle be x.
â€‹Therefore, we have:
90oâ€‹ + 50o= 180o
⇒        140o = 180o
â€‹   ⇒                    x = 180o$-$ 140o
⇒                     x =  40o
â€‹ The third acute angle is 40oâ€‹.

#### Question 5:

In a right angle triangle, one of the angles is 90o.
It is given that one of the acute angled of the right angled triangle is 50o.
We know that the sum of the measures of all the angles of a triangle is 180o.
Now, let the third angle be x.
â€‹Therefore, we have:
90oâ€‹ + 50o= 180o
⇒        140o = 180o
â€‹   ⇒                    x = 180o$-$ 140o
⇒                     x =  40o
â€‹ The third acute angle is 40oâ€‹. Given:
∠A = 110o and â€‹∠B = ∠C
Now, the sum of the measures of all the angles of a traingle is 180o .
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒    110o + â€‹∠B + ∠B = 180o
â€‹      ⇒    110o  + 2â€‹∠B = 180o
â€‹
⇒                2â€‹∠B = 180$-$ 110o
⇒                2∠B =  70o
⇒                  ∠B = 70/ 2
⇒                  ∠B = 35o

∴ â€‹∠C = 35o
The measures of the three angles:
∠A = 110o, ∠B = 35o, â€‹∠C = 35o

#### Question 6: Given:
∠A = 110o and â€‹∠B = ∠C
Now, the sum of the measures of all the angles of a traingle is 180o .
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒    110o + â€‹∠B + ∠B = 180o
â€‹      ⇒    110o  + 2â€‹∠B = 180o
â€‹
⇒                2â€‹∠B = 180$-$ 110o
⇒                2∠B =  70o
⇒                  ∠B = 70/ 2
⇒                  ∠B = 35o

∴ â€‹∠C = 35o
The measures of the three angles:
∠A = 110o, ∠B = 35o, â€‹∠C = 35o

Given:
∠A = ∠B + ∠C
â€‹We know:
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒ ∠B +∠C + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
â€‹    ⇒ 2∠B + 2∠C = 180o
â€‹    ⇒ 2(∠B +∠C) = 180o
â€‹    ⇒ ∠B + ∠C = 180/2
⇒ â€‹∠B + ∠C = 90o
$\therefore$ ∠A = 90o
This shows that the triangle is a right angled triangle.

#### Question 7:

Given:
∠A = ∠B + ∠C
â€‹We know:
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒ ∠B +∠C + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
â€‹    ⇒ 2∠B + 2∠C = 180o
â€‹    ⇒ 2(∠B +∠C) = 180o
â€‹    ⇒ ∠B + ∠C = 180/2
⇒ â€‹∠B + ∠C = 90o
$\therefore$ ∠A = 90o
This shows that the triangle is a right angled triangle.

$\therefore$ (2x)o + (3x)+ (4x)o = 180o
⇒ (9x)o = 180o
â€‹  ⇒ x = 180 / 9
⇒ x = 20o
$\therefore$ â€‹2x =  40o, 3x = 60o, 4x = 80o

â€‹  ⇒ x = 180 / 9
⇒ x = 20o
$\therefore$ â€‹2x =  40o, 3x = 60o, 4x = 80o

Hence, the measures of the angles of the triangle are 40oâ€‹, 60o, 80o.
Thus, the largest angle is 80o.

Correct option: (c)
Let ∠A = 70o
The triangle is an isosceles triangle.
We know that the angles opposite to the equal sides of an isosceles triangle are equal.
$\therefore$ â€‹∠B = 70o
â€‹We need to find the vertical angle â€‹∠C.
Now, sum of all the angles of a triangle is 180o.
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒â€‹ 70o + 70oâ€‹ + ∠C = 180o
⇒ 140+ â€‹∠C = 180o
⇒ ∠C = 180o $-$ 140o
⇒ ∠C = 40o

#### Question 6:

Correct option: (c)
Let ∠A = 70o
The triangle is an isosceles triangle.
We know that the angles opposite to the equal sides of an isosceles triangle are equal.
$\therefore$ â€‹∠B = 70o
â€‹We need to find the vertical angle â€‹∠C.
Now, sum of all the angles of a triangle is 180o.
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒â€‹ 70o + 70oâ€‹ + ∠C = 180o

Correct option: (c)
A triangle having sides of different lengths is called a scalene triangle.

#### Question 7:

Correct option: (c)
A triangle having sides of different lengths is called a scalene triangle.

Correct option: (a) In the isosceles ABC, â€‹the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at point O.
Since the triangle is isosceles, the angles opposite to the equal sides are equal.
∠B = ∠C
$\therefore$ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒  40o + 2∠B = 180o
⇒ 2∠B = 140o
⇒ ∠B = 70o
Bisectors of an angle divide the angle into two equal angles.
So, in  âˆ†BOC:
∠OBC = 35o and ∠OCB = 35o
∠BOC + ∠OBC + ∠OCB = 180â€‹o
⇒ ∠BOC + 35o + 35o = 180o
⇒ ∠BOC = 180oâ€‹ - 70o
⇒ ∠BOC = 110o

#### Question 8:

Correct option: (a) In the isosceles ABC, â€‹the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at point O.
Since the triangle is isosceles, the angles opposite to the equal sides are equal.
∠B = ∠C
$\therefore$ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180o
⇒  40o + 2∠B = 180o
⇒ 2∠B = 140o
⇒ ∠B = 70o
Bisectors of an angle divide the angle into two equal angles.
So, in  âˆ†BOC:
∠OBC = 35o and ∠OCB = 35o
∠BOC + ∠OBC + ∠OCB = 180â€‹o
⇒ ∠BOC + 35o + 35o = 180o
⇒ ∠BOC = 180oâ€‹ - 70o
⇒ ∠BOC = 110o

Correct option: (b)

First side = 3x = 9 cm
Second side = 2x = 6 cm
Third side = 5x = 15 cm
The length of the longest side is 15 cm.

#### Question 9:

The sides of a triangle are in the ratio 3:2:5.
Let the lengths of the sides of the triangle be (3x), (2x), (5x).
We know:
Sum of the lengths of the sides of a triangle = Perimeter
(3x) + (2x) + (5x) = 30
⇒ 10x = 30
⇒ x =  30
10
⇒ x = 3
First side = 3x = 9 cm
Second side = 2x = 6 cm
Third side = 5x = 15 cm
The length of the longest side is 15 cm.
