They are supplementary angles.
(v) 45° (+) 45° = 90°
They are complementary angles.
(vi) 80° (+) 10° = 90°
They are complementary angles.

Q.4 Find the angle which equal to its complement.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

Let the required angle be x°.
its complement = (90 – x)°
According to question,
x= 90 – x Or, x + x = 90 Or, 2x = 90 Or, x = 90/2 = 45° Thus the required angles are 45°.

Q.5 Find the angle which is equal to its supplement.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

Let the required angle be x°.
So, it supplement = (180 – x)°
Now, x = 180 – x
Or, x + x = 180
Or, 2x = 180°
Or x=180°/2=90°
Thus, the required angle is 90°.

Q.6 In the given figure, $$\angle$$ 1 and $$\angle$$2 are supplementary angles.
If $$\angle$$ 1 is decreased, what changes should take place in $$\angle$$ 2 so that both the angles still remain

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

$$\angle$$ 1 + $$\angle$$2 = 180° (given)
If $$\angle$$ 1 is decreased by some degrees, then angle 2 will also be increased by the same degree so that the two angles still remain supplementary.

Q.7 Can two angles be supplementary if both of them are:
(i) acute?
(ii) obtuse?
(iii) right?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

(i) No, If two angles are acute, means less than 90°, the two angles cannot be supplementary. Because, their sum will be always less than 180° .
(ii) No. If two angles are obtuse, means more than 90°, the two angles cannot be supplementary. Because, their sum will be always more than 180°.
(iii) Yes. If two angles are right, means both measures 90°, then two angles can form a supplementary pair.
90° + 90° = 180°

Q.8 An angle is greater than 45°. Is its complementary angle greater than 45° or equal to 45° or less than 45 °?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

Given angle is greater than 45°
Let the given angle be x°.
So, x > 45
Complement of x° = 90° – x° < 45° [ because x > 45°]
Thus the required angle is less than 45°.

(i) Yes, $$\angle$$ 1 and $$\angle$$ 2 are adjacent angles.
because it's one arm (OC) is common
(ii) No, $$\angle$$ AOC is not adjacent to $$\angle$$ AOE.
[ because OC and OE do not lie on either side of common arm OA] .
(iii) Yes, $$\angle$$ COE and $$\angle$$ EOD form a linear pair of angles.
(iv) Yes, $$\angle$$ BOD and $$\angle$$ DOA are supplementary.
[Because $$\angle$$ BOD + because $$\angle$$DOA = 180°]

Q.12 Find the values of the angles x, y and z in each of the following:
(i) (ii)

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

From Fig. 1. we have
$$\angle$$x = 55° (Vertically opposite angles)
$$\angle$$ x + $$\angle$$ y = 180° (Adjacent angles)
55° + $$\angle$$ y = 180° (Linear pair angles)
So, $$\angle$$ y = 180° – 55° = 125°
$$\angle$$ y = $$\angle$$ z (Vertically opposite angles)
$$\angle$$ z = 125 °
Hence, $$\angle$$ x = 55°, $$\angle$$ y = 125° and $$\angle$$ z = 125°
From Fig. ii . we have
25° + x + 40° = 180° (Sum of adjacent angles on straight line)
65° + x = 180°
So, x = 180° – 65° = 115°
40° + y = 180° (Linear pairs)
So, y = 180° – 40° = 140°
y + z = 180° (Linear pairs)
140° + z = 180°
So, z = 180° – 140° = 40°
Hence, x – 115°, y = 140° and z – 40°

Q.3 the given figure, p $$\parallel$$q. Find the unknown angles.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

$$\angle$$e + 125° = 180° (Linear pair)
$$\therefore$$ $$\angle$$e = 180° – 125° = 55°
$$\angle$$e = $$\angle$$f (Vertically opposite angles)
$$\therefore$$ $$\angle$$f= 55°
$$\angle$$a = $$\angle$$f= 55° (Alternate interior angles)
$$\angle$$c = $$\angle$$a = 55° (Vertically opposite angles)
$$\angle$$d = 125° (Corresponding angles)
$$\angle$$b = $$\angle$$d = 125° (Vertically opposite angles)
Thus, $$\angle$$a = 55°, $$\angle$$b = 125°, $$\angle$$c = 55°, $$\angle$$d = 125°, $$\angle$$e = 55°, $$\angle$$f= 55°.

Q.4 Find the value of x in each of the following figures if l $$\parallel$$m

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

(i) Let the angle opposite to 110° be y.
$$\therefore$$ y = 110° (Vertically opposite angles)
$$\angle$$x + $$\angle$$y = 180° (Sum of interior angle on the same side of transversal)
$$\angle$$x + 110° = 180° .
$$\therefore$$ $$\angle$$x = 180° – 110° = 70°
Thus x= 70°
(ii) $$\angle$$x = 110° (Pair of corresponding angles)

$$\angle$$DGC = $$\angle$$ABC
(i) $$\angle$$DGC = 70° (Pair of corresponding angles)
$$\angle$$DEF = $$\angle$$DGC
(ii) $$\angle$$DEF = 70° (Pair of corresponding angles)

Q.6 In the given figure below, decide whether l is parallel to m.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 5 Lines And Angles

Answer :

(i) Sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal = 126° + 44° = 170° $$\neq$$180°
$$\therefore$$ l is not parallel to m.

(ii) Let angle opposite to 75° be x.
x = 75° [Vertically opposite angles]
$$\therefore$$ Sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal
= x + 75° = 75° + 75°
= 150° $$\neq$$ 180°
$$\therefore$$ l is not parallel to m.

(iii) Let the angle opposite to 57° be y.
$$\therefore$$ $$\angle$$y = 57° (Vertically opposite angles)
$$\therefore$$ Sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal
= 57° + 123° = 180°
$$\therefore$$ l is parallel to m.

(iv) Let angle opposite to 72° be z.
$$\therefore$$z = 70° (Vertically opposite angle)
[Sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal]
= z + 98° = 72° + 98°= 170° $$\neq$$ 180°
$$\therefore$$ l is not parallel to m.
