LINES AND ANGLES

• Basic Terms and Definitions


• Intersecting Lines and Non-intersecting Lines
• Pairs of Angles
• Parallel Lines And A Transversal
• Lines Parallel To The Same Line
• Angle Sum Property of A Triangle

(a) Segment: - A part of line with two end points is called a line-segment.

A line segment is denoted by AB and its length is is denoted by AB.

(b) Ray: - A part of a line with one end-point is called a ray.

A ray is denoted by AB.

We can denote a line-segment AB, a ray AB and length AB and line AB by the
same symbol AB.

(c) Collinear points: - If three or more points lie on the same line, then they
are called
collinear points, otherwise they are called non-collinear points.

(c) Angle: - An angle is formed by two rays originating from the same end point.

The rays making an angle are called the arms of the angle and the end-points are
called the vertex of the angle.

(d)Types of Angles:-

(i) Acute angle: - An angle whose measure lies between 0° and 90°, is
called an acute angle.

(ii) Right angle: - An angle, whose measure is equal to 90°, is called a right
angle.

(iii) Obtuse angle: - An angle, whose measure lies between 90° and 180°, is
called an obtuse angle.

(iv) Straight angle: - The measure of a straight angle is 180°.

(v) Reflex angle: - An angle which is greater than 180° and less than 360°,
is called the reflex angle.

(vi) Complimentary angle: - Two angles, whose sum is 90°, are called
complimentary angle.

(vii) Supplementary angle: - Two angles whose sum is 180º, are called

supplementary angle.

(viii) Adjacent angle: - Two angles are adjacent, if they have a common
vertex, a
common vertex, common arm and their non-common arms are on
different sides of the common arm.

In the above figure ∠ABD and ∠DBC are adjacent angle. Ray BD is their
common arm and point B is their common vertex. Ray BA and ray BC are non-
common arms.
When the two angles are adjacent, then their sum is always equal to the
angle formed by the two non-common arms.

Thus, ∠ABC = ∠ABD + ∠DBC .

Here we can observe that ∠ABC and ∠DBC are not adjacent angles, because
their non-common arms BD and AB lie on the same side of the common arm BC.

(ix) Linear pair of angles: - If the sum of two adjacent angles is 180º, then
their non-common lines are in the same straight line and two adjacent
angles form a linear pair of angles.

www.excellup.com ©2009 send your queries to enquiry@excellup.com


Finish Line & Beyond

In the fig. ∠ABD and ∠CBD form a linear pair of angles because

∠ABD + ∠CBD = 180º.

(x) Vertically opposite angles: - When two lines AB and CD intersect at a


point O, the vertically opposite angles are formed.

Here are two pairs of vertically opposite angles. One pair is ∠AOD and ∠BOC
and the second pair is ∠AOC and ∠BOD
The vertically opposite angles are always equal.

So, ∠AOD = ∠BOC and ∠AOC = ∠BOD

(e) Intersecting lines and non-intersecting lines: - Two lines are intersecting
if they have one point in common. We have observed in the above figure that
lines AB and CD are intersecting lines, intersecting at O, their point of
intersection.

Parallel lines: - If two lines do not meet at a point if extended to both


directions, such lines are called parallel lines.

P Q

R S
Lines PQ and RS are parallel lines.

The length of the common perpendiculars at different points on these parallel


lines is same. This equal length is called the distance between two parallel
lines.

Axiom 1. If a ray stands on a line, then the sum of two adjacent angles so formed is
180º.
Conversely if the sum of two adjacent angles is 180º, then a ray stands
on a line
(i.e., the non-common arms form a line).

Axiom 2. If the sum of two adjacent angles is 180º, then the non-common arms of
the angles form a line. It is called Linear Pair Axiom.

(f) Theorem 1. If two lines intersect each other, then the vertically
opposite angles are equal.
Sol. Given: Two lines AB and CD intersect each other at O.
To Prove: -

∠AOC = ∠BOD
and ∠AOD = ∠BOC

Proof: -

Ray OA stands on line CD.

∴ ∠AOC + ∠AOD = 180º ………….equation (i) {Linear Pair Axiom}

Again ray OD stands on line AB.

∴ ∠AOD + ∠BOD = 180º …………..equation (ii)

From equation (i) and (ii),

∠AOC + ∠AOD = ∠AOD + ∠BOD

⇒ ∠AOC + ∠AOD - ∠AOD = ∠BOD

⇒ ∠AOC = ∠BOD

Now, Again

Ray OB stands on line CD.

∴ ∠BOC + ∠BOD = 180º ………….equation (iii) {Linear Pair Axiom}

Again ray OD stands on line AB.

∴ ∠AOD + ∠BOD = 180º …………..equation (iv)

From equation (iii) and (iv),

⇒ ∠BOC + ∠BOD = ∠AOD + ∠BOD

⇒ ∠BOC + ∠BOD - ∠BOD = ∠AOD

Alternate Exterior Angles: - (i) ∠1 = ∠7 (ii) ∠ 2 = ∠8

Interior angles on the same side of the transversal line are called the consecutive
interior angles or allied angles or co-interior angles.

Hence, ∠BRS = 180° − 130° = 50°
∠ARQ = 180° − 110° = 70°
Now, it is clear that ∠ARQ + ∠QRS + ∠BRS = 180°

Answer: From the theory of reflection in Physics we know that angle of incidence is
equal to angle of reflection.
Here, In the case of mirror PQ, Angle of incidence i = ∠ABP
And angle of reflection r = ∠QBC

In the case of mirror RS, Angle of incidence i = ∠BCR


And angle of reflection r = ∠SCD

Required evidence to prove AB║CD


We need to check if ∠ABC = ∠BCD (Alternate angles)

On line PQ,∠ABP + ∠ABC + ∠QBC = 180°


⇒ i + ∠ABC + r = 180°
⇒ i + i + ∠ABC = 180° ………………………..(1)
Similarly, on line RS it can be observed that

Angle Sum Property of a Triangle

Theorem: The sum of the angles of a triangle is 180º.

Construction: Let us draw a triangle PQR and draw a line XY║QR so that it touches
the vertex P of the triangle. For convenience let us name angles as 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Proof:∠1 = ∠ 4 (Alternate angles)


∠3 = ∠5 (Alternate angles)
∠1 + ∠ 2 + ∠3 = 180°

Substituting the values of ∠1 and ∠ 2 we get


∠ 4 + ∠ 2 + ∠5 = 180°

Evidence: From earlier theorem we know that,


∠1 + ∠ 2 + ∠3 = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle) ………………..(1)

On line QS,
∠3 + ∠ 4 = 180° (Angles on the same side of a line) …………………..(2)

From equation (1) and (2) it is clear,


∠ 4 = ∠1 + ∠ 2

Exercise 3:

1. In the following figure, sides QP and RQ of ΔPQR are produced to points S and T
respectively. If ∠SPR = 135° and ∠PQT = 110° , find the value of ∠PRQ

Answer: On line QS, ∠QPR + ∠SPR = 180°


⇒ ∠QPR = 180° − 135° = 45°
Similarly on line TR, ∠TQP + PQR = 180°

⇒ ∠PQR = 180° − 110° = 70°

Now we have values of two angles of the given triangle so value of the third angle
can be calculated as follows:
∠PRQ = 180° − (70° + 45°) = 65°

2. In the following figure ∠X = 62° and ∠XYZ = 54° . If YO and ZO are the bisectors
of ∠XYZ and ∠XZY respectively of ΔXYZ, find values of ∠OZY and ∠YOZ

Answer: In ΔXYZ,
∠XYZ + ∠YXZ + ∠XZY = 180°
⇒ ∠XZY = 180° − (62° + 54°) = 64°

As per the question YO and ZO are bisectors of ∠XYZ and ∠XZY respectively
1
Hence, ∠OYZ = ∠XYZ = 54 ÷ 2 = 27°
2
1
And, ∠OZY = ∠XZY = 64 ÷ 2 = 32°
2

Now, for ΔOYZ,


∠YOZ = 180° − (∠OYZ + ∠OZY )
=180°-(27°+32°)=121°
Requires answers are 32° and 121°

3. In the following figure AB║DE, ∠BAC = 35° and ∠CDE = 53° , find the value of
∠DCE

Answer: ∠BAC = ∠CED = 35° (Alternate angles)

In ΔDCE, ∠DCE + ∠CDE + ∠CED = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)


Hence, ∠DCE = 180° − (53° + 35° ) = 92°

4. In the following figure lines PQ and RS intersect at point T, such that ∠PRT = 40°
, ∠RPT = 95° and ∠TSQ = 75° . Find the value of ∠SQT .

Answer: In ΔPRT,
∠PRT + ∠RPT + ∠PTR = 180°
⇒ ∠PTR = 180° − (95° + 40°) = 45°

As we know opposite angles are equal so ∠PTR = ∠STQ = 45°

Now, in ΔQST,

∠QST + ∠STQ + ∠SQT = 180°


⇒ ∠SQT = 180° − (75° + 45°) = 60°

5. In the following figure, PQ ⊥ PS, PQ║SR, ∠SQR = 28° and ∠QRT = 65° . Find the
values of x and y.

Answer: On the line ST,


∠QRS + ∠QRT = 180°
⇒ ∠QRS = 180° − 65° = 115°

In ΔQRS,
∠QSR + ∠SQR + ∠QRS = 180°
∠QSR = 180° − (28° + 115°) = 27°

Now,∠SPQ = ∠PSR (Complementary Angles on the inner side of transversal)


∴ ∠PSQ = 90° − 27° = 63°

In ΔSPQ,
∠PQS = 180° − (∠SPQ + ∠PSQ)
=180°-(90°+63°) = 27°

So, x=27°
Y=63°

6. In the following figure, the side QR of ΔPQR is produced to a point S. If the

Answer: In Δ PQR

∠SRP = ∠QPR + ∠PQR


1 1 1
∴ ∠SRP = ∠QPR + ∠PQR
2 2 2
1 1 1
or, ∠QPR = ∠SRP − ∠PQR …………………………..(1)
2 2 2

In Δ TQR
∠SRT = ∠QTR + ∠TQR
1 1
Or, ∠SRP = ∠QTR + ∠PQR
2 2
1 1
Or, ∠QTR = ∠SRP − ∠PQR ……………………………..(2)
2 2
As RHS of both equations are same So, following can be written:
1
∠QTR = ∠QPR
2
