Question 1: In the adjoining figure AB\parallel CD Find the values of x \ and\  y . Give reasons.q1


\angle EGC=\angle DGH (Vertically opposite angles)

\Rightarrow \angle DGH=2x

Hence y+2x=180   ------ (i)

\angle DGH=\angle GHA (Alternate interior angles)

\Rightarrow 2x+3x=180

\Rightarrow x=36^{\circ}

Substituting in (i) we get


Hence x=36^{\circ} \ and\ y=108^{\circ}


Question 2: In each of the following figures, AB \parallel CO Find. the value of x . Give reasons


i) Since AB\parallel CD q2

 \angle DGH+\angle BHG=180^{\circ} 


\Rightarrow 7x=203

\Rightarrow x=29^{\circ} 

ii)  Since AB\parallel CD , corresponding angles are equal thereforeq3

Given  AB\parallel CD, \angle 2:\angle 1=5:4

Therefore  5x+4x=180

\Rightarrow  x=20

  \therefore \angle 2=100^{\circ} \ \&\  \angle 1=80^{\circ}   


 \angle 3=\angle 1=80^{\circ}   (Vertically opposite angles)

  \angle 2=\angle 4=100^{\circ}   (Vertically opposite angles )

  \angle 4=\angle 6=100^{\circ}  (Alternate angles)

  \angle 3=\angle 5=80^{\circ}   (alternate angles)

Similarly  \angle 5=\angle 7=80^{\circ}   \ and\  \angle 6=\angle 8=100^{\circ}


Question 4: In the adjoining figure  AB \parallel  CD , Find the values of  x, \ y \ and\  z .q5


 \angle DPR=\angle PRQ (Alternate interior angles)

Therefore  80+3x+2x=180

\Rightarrow 5x=100

  \Rightarrow x=20^{\circ}

Therefore  \angle QRP=y=60^{\circ}

\Rightarrow \angle QPR=2x=40^{\circ}

Now y+z=180 (angles on straight lines are complementary)

\Rightarrow z=180-60=120^{\circ}

 Hence \  x=20^{\circ}  ,\  y=60^{\circ}  , \ z=120^{\circ}

\angle AMP=\angle NMB


  \angle NMB=x+5+27=x+32

  \angle OND=\angle NMB (Corresponding angles)

 \Rightarrow x=25^{\circ}

vi)  AB\parallel CD q11
