(vi) Co-interior angles

(vii) Vertically opposite angles

(ix) Co-interior angles

(xi) Co-interior angles

(3) In the following figures, the arrows indicate parallel lines. State which angles are equal. Give reasons.

(i) ∠a = ∠b (corresponding angles)

∠b = ∠c (Vertically opposite angles)

∠a = ∠c (alternate angles)

Then, ∠a = ∠b = ∠c

(ii) x = y (Vertically opposite angles)

y = l (Alternate angles)

x = l (corresponding angles)

l = n (vertically opposite angles)

n = r (Corresponding angles)

Then, x = y = l = n = r

k = m (Vertically opposite angles)

m = q (Alternate angles)

Then, k = m = q

(4) In the given figure, find the measure of the unknown angles:

Ans: f = 110° (vertically opposite angles)

f = d = 110° (alternate angles)

d = a = 110° (vertically opposite angles)

a + b = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ 110° + b = 180°

⇒ b = 180° – 110°

⇒ b = 70°

b = c = 70° (Vertically opposite angles)

c = g = 70° (alternate angles)

g = e = 70° (vertically opposite angles)

Hence, a = 110°, b = 70°, c = 70°, d = 110°, e = 70°, f = 110°, g = 70°

(5) Which pair of the dotted line segments, in the following figures, are parallel. Give reason:

(i) b = 60° (vertically opposite angles)

b = a = 60° (alternate angles)

a = c = 60° (vertically opposite angles)

(ii) y = 55° (vertically opposite angles)

z + 55° = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ z = 180° – 55°

⇒ z = 125°

z = x = 125° (alternate angles)

(iii) 120° = c (alternate angles)

c + a = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ a + 120° = 180°

a = b = 60° (vertically opposite angles)

(iv) x= 50° (corresponding angles)

y + 120° = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ y = 180° – 120°

⇒ z + 110° = 360°

⇒ z = 360° – 110°

⇒ z = 250°

(v) x = 90° (linear pair)

We know sum of three angles of a triangle 180°

Then, 30° + 90° + z = 180°

⇒ z = 180° – 120°

⇒ z = 60°

z + y = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ 60° + y = 180°

⇒ y = 180° – 60°

⇒ y = 120°

Again, y + k = 180° (linear pair)

p = 60° (interior angles)

p + q = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ q = 180° – 60°

⇒ q = 120°

r + 60° = 180° (linear pair)

r = t = 120° (vertically opposite angles)

s = y = 70° (alternate angles)

(vii) y = 110° (vertically opposite angles)

x + 120° = 180° (linear pair)

⇒ x = 180° – 120°

⇒ x = 60°

Y = z = 110° (corresponding angles)

(xi) y = 160° + 130° (alternate angles)

⇒ y = 290°

x + y = 360° (angles at a point)
