**POINTS TO REMEMBER**

**1. POINT :** A point: is a mark of position; which has no length, no breadth and no thickness. It, in general, is represented by a capital letter as shown alongside.

**2. LINE :** A line has length, but no breadth or thickness.

“The given figure shows a line AB in which two arrow-heads in opposite directions show that can be extended infinitely in both the directions.

A line may be straight or curved but when we say a line’ it means a straight line only.

**3. RAY :** It is a straight line which stats from a fixed point and moves in the same direction.

The given figure shows a ray\(\xrightarrow { AB }\) with fixed initial point A ‘and moving in the direction AB.

**4. LINE SEGMENT :** It is a straight line with its both ends fixed. The given figure shows a line segment, whose both the ends A and B are fixed.

**(i)** The adjoining figure shows a line AB which can be extended upto infinitey on both the sides of it.

**(ii)** The adjoining figure shows a ray AB with fixed end as point A and which can be extended upto infinity through point B. It is clear from the figure, that a ray is a part of a line.

**(iii)** The adjoining figure shows a line-segment AB with fixed ends A and B. It is clear from the figure, that a line-segment is a part of a ray as well as of a line. Also, a line segment is the shortest distance between two fixed points.

**5. ANGLE :** An angle is formed when two line segments or two rays have a common end-point.

The two line segments, forming an angle, are called the arms of the angle whereas their common end-point is called the vertex of the angle.

The adjacent figure represents an angle ABC or ∠ABC or simply ∠B. AB and BC are the arms of the angle and their common point B is the vertex.

**6. MEASUREMENT OF AN ANGLE :** The unit of measuring an angle is degree. The symbol for degree is °.

Thus : 60 degree = 60°, 87 degree = 87’ and so on.

If one degree is divided into 60 equal parts, each part is called a minute ( ‘) and if one minute is further divided into 60 equal parts, each part is called a second ( ” ).

Thus, **(i)** r = 60′ and l’ = 60″

**(ii)** 9 minutes 45 seconds = 9′ 45″

**(iii)** 85 degrees 30 minutes 15 seconds = 85° 30′ 15″ and so on.

**7. TYPES OF ANGLES :**

**1. Acute angle :**

measures less than 90°

**2. Right angle:**

measures 90°

**3. Obtuse angle :**

measures between 90° and 180°

**4. Straight angle : **

measures 180°

**5. Reflex angle :**

measures between 180° and 360°

**8. MORE ABOUT ANGLES :**

**(A)** Angles about a point: If a number of angles are formed about a point, their sum is always 360°.

In the adjoining figure :

∠AOB + ∠BOC + ∠COD +∠DOE + ∠EOA = 360°

**(B)** Adjacent angles : Two angles are said to be adjacent angles, if:

(i) they have a common vertex,

(ii) they have a common arm and

(iii) the other arms of the two angles lie on opposite sides of the common arm.

The adjoining figure shows a pair of adjacent angles :

(i) they have a common vertex (O),

(ii) they have a common ann (OB) and

(iii) the other arms OA and OC of the two angles are on opposite sides of the common arm OB.

**(C)** Vertically opposite angles : When two straight lines intersect each other four angles are formed.

The pair of angles which lie on the opposite sides of the point of intersection are called vertically opposite angles.

In the adjoining figure, two straight lines AB and CD intersect each other at point 0. Angles AOD and BOC form one pair of vertically opposite angles; whereas angles AOC and BOD form another pair of vertically opposite angles.

Vertically opposite angles are always equal.

i. e. ∠AOD = ∠BOC and ∠AOC = ∠BOD.

Important: In the adjoining figure, rays OX and OY meet a O to form ∠XOY (i.e. ∠a) and reflex ∠XOY (i. e. ∠b). It must be noted that ∠XOY means the smaller angle only unless it is mentioned to take otherwise.

**9. COMPLEMENTARY AND SUPPLEMENTARY ANGLES**

1. Two angles are called **complementary angles,** if their sum is one’right angle i.e. 90° Each angle is called the **complement** of the other.

e.g., 20″ and 70″ are complementary angles, because 20° + 70° = 90°.

Clearly, 20″ is the complement of 70° and 70° is the complement of 20°.

Thus, the complement of angle 53° = 90° – 53° = 37°.

2. Two angles are called **supplementary angles**, if their sum is two right angles i.e. 180″. Each angle is called the **supplement of the other.**

e.g., 30″ and 150° are supplementary angles because 30° + 150° = 180°.

Clearly, 30″ is the supplement of 150° and vice-versa.

Thus, the supplement of 105° = 180° – 105° = 75°.

**10. Transversal :** It is a straight line which cuts two or more given straight lines.

In the adjoining figure, PQ cuts straight lines AB and CD, and so it is a transversal.

When a transversal cuts two given straight lines (refer the adjoining figure), the following pairs of angles are formed.

**1. Two pairs of interior alternate angles :** Angles marked 1 and 2 form one pair of interior alternate angles, while angles marked 3 and 4 form another pair of interior alternate angles.

**2. Two pairs of exterior alternate angles** : Angles marked 5 and 8 form one pair, while angles marked 6 and 7 form the other pair of exterior alternate angles.

**3. Four pairs of corresponding angles :** Angles marked 3 and 6; 1 and 5; 8 and 2; 7 and 4 form the four pairs of corresponding angles.

**4. Two pairs of allied or co-interior or conjoined angles :** Angles marked 3 and 2 form one pair and angles marked 1 and 4 form another pair of allied angles.

**11. PARALLEL LINES :** Two straight lines are said to be parallel, if , they do not meet anywhere; no matter how long are they produced in any direction.

The adjacent figure shows two parallel straight lines AB and CD.

When two parallel lines AB and CD are cut by a transversal PQ :

(i) Interior and exterior alternate angles are equal:

i.e. ∠3 = ∠6 and ∠4 = ∠5 [Interior alternate angles]

∠1 = ∠8 and ∠2 = ∠7 [Exterior alternate angles]

(ii) Corresponding angles are equal:

i.e. ∠1 = ∠5;∠2 = ∠6;∠3 = ∠7 and ∠4 = ∠8

(iii) Co-interior or allied angles are supplementary :

i. e. ∠3 + ∠5 = 180° and ∠4 +∠6 = 180°

**12. CONDITIONS OF PARALLELISM :** If two straight lines are cut by a transversal such that:

(i) a pair of alternate angles are equal, or

(ii) a pair of corresponding angles are equal, or

(iii) the sum of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal is 180°, then the two straight lines are parallel to each other.

Therefore, in order to prove that the given lines are parallel, show either alternate angles are equal or, corresponding angles are equal or, the co-interior angles are supplementary.

**(xi)** ∠2 and ∠13 are allied or co-interior angles.

**Question 3.**

**In the given figures, the arrows indicate parallel lines. State which angles are equal. Give reasons.**

**Solution:**

In the figure (i),

a = b (corresponding angles)

b = c (vertically opposite angles)

a = c (alternate angles)

∴ a = b = c

(ii) In the figure (ii),

x =y (vertically opposite angles)

y=l (alternate angles)

x = I (corresponding angles)

1 = n (vertically opposite angles)

n = r (corresponding angles)

∴ x = y = l = n = r

Again m = k (vertically opposite angles)

k = q (corresponding angles)

∴ m = k = q

**Question 4.**

**In the given figure, find the measure of the unknown angles :**

**Solution:**

a = d (vertically opposite angles)

d=f (corresponding angles)

f= 110° (vertically opposite angles)

∴ a = d = f = 110°

e + 110° = 180° (co-interior angles)

∴ e = 180°- 110° = 70°

b = c (vertically opposite angles)

b = e (corresponding angles)

e = g (vertically opposite angles)

∴ b = c = e = g = 70° ”

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

**Question 5.**

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

**Solution:**

(i) In figure (i), If lines are parallel, then 120°+ 50° =180°

But there are co-interior angles

⇒170° = 180°. But it not true Hence, there are not parallel lines

(ii) In figure (ii),

∠1 = 45° (vertically opposite angles)

Lines are parallel if

∠1 + 135° = 180° (co-interior angles)

⇒45°+ 135°= 180°

⇒ 180° = 180° which is true.

Hence, the lines are parallel.

(iiii) In figure (iii),

Lines are parallel if corresponding angles are equal

If 120° =130° which is not correct

∴ Lines are not parallel.

(iv) ∠1 = 110° (vertically opposite angles)

If lines are parallel then

∠1 + 70° = 180° (co-interior angles)

⇒110° + 70°= 180°

⇒180° =180°

Which is correct.

∴ Lines are parallel.

(v) ∠1 + 100°= 180°

⇒∠1 = 180°- 100°= 80 (linear pair)

Lines l1 and l2 will be parallel If ∠1 = 70°

⇒ 80° = 70° which is not true

∴ l1 and 12 are not parallel Again, A, l3and l5 will be parallel

If 80° = 70° (corresponding angle)

Which is not true.

∴l3 and l5 are not parallel

But ∠1 = 80° (alternate angles)

⇒ 80° = 80°

Which is true

∴ l2 and l4 are parallel

(vi) Lines are parallel

If alternate angles are equal

⇒ 50° = 40°

Wliich is not ture lines are not parallel.
