###### Practice Set 5.1

**Question 1.**

Diagonals of a parallelogram WXYZ intersect each other at point O. If ∠ XYZ = 135° then what is the measure of ∠XWZ and ∠YZW? If l(OY)= 5 cm then l(WY)=?

**Answer:**

Given ZX and WY are the diagonals of the parallelogram

∠ XYZ = 135° ⇒ ∠ XWZ = 135° as the opposite angels of a parallelogram are congruent.

∠YZW + ∠ XWZ = 180° as the adjacent angels of the parallelogram are supplementary.

⇒ ∠YZW = 180° - 135° = 45°

Length of OY = 5 cm then length of WY = WO + OY = 5+5 = 10 cm

(diagonals of the parallelogram bisect each other. So, O is midpoint of WY)

**Question 2.**

In a parallelogram ABCD, If ∠A = (3x +12)°, ∠B = (2x -32) ° then find the value of x and then find the measures of ∠C and ∠D.

**Answer:**

∠A = (3x +12)°

∠B = (2x -32) °

∠A + ∠B = 180° (supplementary angles of the ∥gram)

(3x +12) + (2x -32) = 180

5x – 20 = 180°

5x = 200°

∴ x= 40°

∠A = (3 × 40) +12 = 120 + 12

= 132

⇒ ∠C = 132° (opposite ∠s are congruent)

Similarly, ∠B = 2× 40 – 32

= 80 - 32°

= 48°

⇒ ∠D = 48°(opposite ∠s are congruent)

**Question 3.**

Perimeter of a parallelogram is 150 cm. One of its sides is greater than the other side by 25 cm. Find the lengths of all sides.

**Answer:**

perimeter of parallelogram = 150cm

Let the one side of parallelogram be x cm then

Acc. To the given condition

Other side is (x+25) cm

Perimeter of parallelogram = 2(a+b)

150 = 2( x+x+25)

150 = 2(2x+25)

One side is 25cm and the other side is 50cm.

**Question 4.**

If the ratio of measures of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram is 1 : 2, find the measures of all angles of the parallelogram.

**Answer:**

Given that the ratio of measures of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram= 1 : 2

If one ∠ is x other would be 180 – x as the adjacent ∠s of a parallelogram are supplementary.

Other ∠ is 120° .

The measure of all the angles are 60 °, 120 °, 60 ° and 120 ° where 60 ° and 120 ° are adjacent ∠s and 60 ° and 60 ° are congruent opposite angles.

**Question 5.**

Diagonals of a parallelogram intersect each other at point O. If AO = 5, BO = 12 and AB = 13 then show that ABCD is a rhombus.

**Answer:**

The figure is given below:

Given AO =5, BO = 12 and AB = 13

In Δ AOB, AO^{2} + BO^{2} = AB^{2}

∵ 5^{2} + 12^{2} = 13^{2}

25^{2} + 144^{2} = 169^{2}

so by the Pythagoras theorem

Δ AOB is right angled at ∠ AOB.

**But ∠ AOB + ∠ AOD forms a linear pair so the given parallelogram is rhombus whose diagonal bisects each other at 90°.**

**Question 6.**

In the figure 5.12, PQRS and ABCR are two parallelograms. If ∠P = 110° then find the measures of all angles of ABCR.

**Answer:**

given PQRS and ABCR are two ∥gram.

∠P = 110° ⇒ ∠R = 110°

(opposite ∠s of parallelogram are congruent)

Now if , ∠R = 110° ⇒ ∠ B = 110°

∠B + ∠A = 180°

(adjacent ∠s of a parallelogram are supplementary)

⇒ ∠A = 70° ⇒ ∠C = 70°

(opposite ∠s of parallelogram are congruent)

**Question 7.**

In figure 5.13 ABCD is a parallelogram. Point E is on the ray AB such that BE = AB then prove that line ED bisects seg BC at point F.

**Answer:**

Given, ABCD is a parallelogram

And BE = AB

But AB = DC (opposite sides of the parallelogram are equal and parallel)

⇒ DC = BE

In Δ BEF and ∠DCF

∠DFC = ∠BFE (vertically opposite angles)

∠DFC = ∠ BFE (alternate ∠s on the transversal BC with AB and DC as ∥ )

And BE = AB (given)

Δ BEF ≅ ∠DCF (by AAS criterion)

⇒ BF =FC (corresponding parts of the congruent triangles)

⇒ F is mid-point of the line BC. Hence proved.

###### Practice Set 5.2

**Question 1.**

In figure 5.22, ABCD is a parallelogram, P and Q are midpoints of side AB and DC respectively, then prove APCQ is a parallelogram.

**Answer:**

Given AB ∥ to DC and AB = DC as ABCD is ∥gram.

⇒ AP ∥CQ (parts of ∥ sides are ∥) & 1/2 AB = 1/2 DC

⇒ AP = QC (P and Q are midpoint of AB and DC respectively)

⇒ AP = PB and DQ = QC

Hence APCQ is a parallelogram as the pair of opposite sides is = and ∥.

**Question 2.**

Using opposite angles test for parallelogram, prove that every rectangle is a parallelogram.

**Answer:**

Opposite angle property of parallelogram says that the opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent.

Given a rectangle which had at least one angle as 90°.

If ∠ A is 90° and AD = BC (opposite sides of rectangle are ∥ and =)

AB is transversal

⇒ ∠ A + ∠B = 180 (angles on the same side of transversal is 180°)

But ∠B + ∠C is 180 (AD ∥ BC, opposite sides of rectangle)

⇒ ∠ A = ∠C = 90°

Since opposite ∠s are equal this rectangle is a parallelogram too.

**Question 3.**

In figure 5.23, G is the point of concurrence of medians of ΔDEF. Take point H on ray DG such that D-G-H and DG = GH, then prove that GEHF is a parallelogram.

**Answer:**

Given G is the point of concurrence of medians of Δ DEF so the medians are divided in the ratio of 2:1 at the point of concurrence. Let O be the point of intersection of GH AND EF.

The figure is shown below:

⇒ DG = 2 GO

But DG = GH

⇒ 2 GO = GH

Also DO is the median for side EF.

⇒ EO = OF

Since the two diagonals bisects each other

⇒ GEHF is a ∥gram.

**Question 4.**

Prove that quadrilateral formed by the intersection of angle bisectors of all angles of a parallelogram is a rectangle. (Figure 5.24)

**Answer:**

Given ABCD is a parallelogram

AR bisects ∠BAD, DP bisects ∠ADC , CP bisects ∠BCD and BR bisects ∠CBA

∠BAD + ∠ABC = 180° (adjacent ∠s of parallelogram are supplementary)

But 1/2 ∠BAD = ∠BAR

1/2 ∠ABC = ∠RBA

∠BAR + ∠RBA = 1/2 × 180° = 90°

⇒ Δ ARB is right angled at ∠ R since its acute interior angles are complementary.

Similarly Δ DPC is right angled at ∠ P and

Also in Δ COB , ∠BOC = 90° ⇒ ∠POR = 90° (vertically opposite angles)

Similarly in ΔADS , ∠ASD = 90° = ∠PSR (vertically opposite angles)

Since vertically opposite angles are equal and measures 90° the quadrilateral is a rectangle.

**Question 5.**

In figure 5.25, if points P, Q, R, S are on the sides of parallelogram such that AP = BQ = CR = DS then prove that PQRS is a parallelogram.

**Answer:**

Given ABCD is a parallelogram so

AD = BC and AD ∥BC

and DC = AB and DC ∥ AB

also AP = BQ = CR = DS

⇒ AS = CQ and PB = DR

in ΔAPS and Δ CRQ

∠ A = ∠C (opposite ∠s of a parallelogram are congruent)

AS = CQ

AP = CR

ΔAPS ≅ Δ CRQ( SAS congruence rule)

⇒ PS = RQ (c.p.c.t.)

Similarly PQ= SR

Since both the pair of opposite sides are equal

PQRS is ∥gram.

###### Practice Set 5.3

**Question 1.**

Diagonals of a rectangle ABCD intersect at point O. If AC = 8 cm then find BO and if ∠CAD = 35° then find ∠ACB.

**Answer:**

The diagonals of a rectangle are congruent to each other and bisects each other at the point of intersection so since AC = 8 cm

⇒ BD = 8 cm and

O is point of intersection so DO = OB = AO = OC = 4 cm

∠CAD = 35 ° given

⇒ ∠ACB = 35 °

(since AB ∥ DC and AC is transversal ∴ ∠CAD and ∠ACB are pair of alternate interior angle.)

**Question 2.**

In a rhombus PQRS if PQ = 7.5 then find QR. If ∠QPS = 75° then find the measure of ∠PQR and ∠SRQ.

**Answer:**

Given quadrilateral is a rhombus.

⇒ all the sides are congruent /equal

⇒ PQ = QR = 7.5

Also ∠QPS = 75° (given)

⇒∠QPS = 75° (opposite angles are congruent)

But ∠QPS + ∠PQR = 180° (adjacent angles are supplementary)

⇒ ∠PQR = 105°

∴ ∠SRQ = 105° (opposite angles)

**Question 3.**

Diagonals of a square IJKL intersects at point M, Find the measures of ∠IMJ, ∠JIK and ∠LJK.

**Answer:**

The given quadrilateral is a square

⇒ all the angles are 90°

∴ ∠JIK = 90°

Since the diagonals are to each other ∠IMJ = 90°

Since the diagonals os a square are bisectors of the angles also

∠LJK = ∠IJL = 1/2 × 90° = 45°

**Question 4.**

Diagonals of a rhombus are 20 cm and 21 cm respectively, then find the side of rhombus and its perimeter.

**Answer:**

Let the diagonal AC = 20cm and BD = 21

AB^{2} = BO^{2} + AO^{2}

AB^{2} = (10.5)^{2} + (10)^{2}

(the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at 90°)

AB^{2} = 110.25 + 100

AB = √210.25 = 14.5cm (side of the rhombus)

Perimeter = 4a = 14. 5 × 4 = 58cm

**Question 5.**

(vi) False.

__Explanation:__

Every parallelogram is a rectangle is not true as rectangle has each angle of 90° measure but same is not the case with every parallelogram.

###### Practice Set 5.4

**Question 1.**

In IJKL, side IJ || side KL ∠I = 108° ∠K = 53° then find the measures of ∠J and ∠L.

**Answer:**

IJ ∥ KL and IL is transversal

∠I + ∠L = 180° (adjacent angles on the same side of the transversal)

⇒ ∠L = 180° – 108° = 72°

Now again IJ ∥ KL and JK is transversal

∠J + ∠K= 180 ° (adjacent angles on the same side of the transversal)

⇒ ∠K = 180° – 53° = 127°

**Question 2.**

In ABCD, side BC || side AD, side AB ≅ sided DC If ∠A = 72° then find the measures of ∠B, and ∠D.

**Answer:**

Given that BC ∥ AD and BC = AD (congruent)

⇒ the quadrilateral is a parallelogram (pair of opposite sides are equal and parallel)

∠ A = 72°

⇒ ∠C = 72° (opposite angles of parallelogram are congruent)

∠B = 180° – 72° = 108° (adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary)

∠D = 108° (opposite angles of parallelogram are congruent)

**Question 3.**

In ABCD, side BC < side AD (Figure 5.32) side BC || side AD and if side BE ≅ side CD then prove that ∠ABC ≅ ∠DCB.

**Answer:**

The figure of the question is given below:

Construction: we will draw a segment ∥ to BA meeting BC in E through point D.

Given BC ∥ AD

And AB ∥ ED (construction)

⇒ AB = DE (distance between parallel lines is always same)

Hence ABDE is parallelogram

⇒ ∠ABE ≅ ∠DEC (corresponding angles on the same side of transversal)

And segBA ≅ seg DE (opposite sides of a ∥gram)

But given BA ≅ CD

So seg DE ≅ seg CD

⇒∠CED ≅ ∠DCE ( ∵ Δ CED is isosceles with CE = CD)

(Angle opposite to opposite sides are equal)

⇒ ∠ABC ≅ ∠DCB

###### Practice Set 5.5

**Question 1.**

In figure 5.38, points X, Y, Z are the midpoints of side AB, side BC and side AC of ΔABC respectively. AB = 5 cm, AC = 9 cm and BC = 11 cm. Find the length of XY, YZ, XZ.

**Answer:**

Given X , Y and Z is the mid-point of AB, BC and AC.

Length of AB = 5 cm

So length of ZY = 1/2 × AB =1/2 × 5=2.5 cm (line joining mid-point of two sides of a triangle is parallel of the third side and is half of it)

Similarly, XZ = 1/2 × BC = 1/2 × 11= 5.5cm

Similarly, XY = 1/2 × AC = 1/2 × 9 = 4.5cm

**Question 2.**

In figure 5.39, PQRS and MNRL are rectangles. If point M is the midpoint of side PR then prove that,

i. SL = LR. Ii. LN = 1/2SQ.

**Answer:**

The two rectangle PQRS and MNRL

In Δ PSR,

∠ PSR = ∠ MLR = 90°

∴ ML ∥ SP when SL is the transversal

M is the midpoint of PR (given)

By mid-point theorem a parallel line drawn from a mid-point of a side of a Δ meets at the Mid-point of the opposite side.

Hence L is the mid-point of SR

⇒ SL= LR

Similarly if we construct a line from L which is parallel to SR

This gives N is the midpoint of QR

Hence LN∥ SQ and L and N are mis points of SR and QR respectively

And LN = 1/2 SQ (mid-point theorem)

**Question 3.**

In figure 5.40, ΔABC is an equilateral triangle. Points F,D and E are midpoints of side AB, side BC, side AC respectively. Show that ΔEFD is an equilateral triangle.

**Answer:**

Given F, D and E are mid-point of AB, BC and AC of the equilateral ΔABC ∴ AB =BC = AC

So by mid-point theorem

Line joining mid-points of two sides of a triangle is 1/2 of the parallel third side.

∴ FE = 1/2 BC =

Similarly, DE = 1/2 AB

And FD = 1/2 AC

But AB =BC = AC

⇒ 1/2 AB = 1/2 BC = 1/2 AC

⇒ DE = FD = FE

Since all the sides are equal ΔDEF is a equilateral triangle.

**Question 4.**

In figure 5.41, seg PD is a median of ΔPQR, Point T is the midpoint of seg PD. Produced QT intersects PR at M. Show that

[Hint : draw DN || QM.]

**Answer:**

PD is median so QD = DR (median divides the side opposite to vertex into equal halves)

T is mid-point of PD

⇒ PT = TD

In ΔPDN

T is mid-point and is ∥ to TM (by construction)

⇒TM is mid-point of PN

PM =MN……………….1

Similarly in ΔQMR

QM ∥ DN (construction)

D is mid –point of QR

⇒ MN = NR…………………..2

From 1 and 2

PM = MN = NR

Or PM = 1/3 PR

⇒ hence proved
