Q.2 Construct \(\triangle \)PQR if PQ = 5 cm, m?PQR = 105° and \(\angle \)QRP = 40°.

(Hint: Recall angle-sum property of a triangle)

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 10 Practical Geometry

Answer :

Given: \(\angle PQR = 40°, \angle QRP = 105°\)

\(\therefore \angle PQR + \angle QRP + \angle QPR = 180°\) (Angle sum property of a triangle)

105° + 40° +\( \angle \)QPR = 180°

145° + \(\angle \)QPR = 180°

\(\therefore \angle QPR = 180° – 145° = 35°\)

Step 1. Draw a line segment PQ = 5 cm.

Step 2. At point P, draw an angle \(\angle \) P = 35°

Step 3 At point Q draw an angle \(\angle \) Q = 105°

Step 4. Now the two rays intersect at the point R.

Then, \(\triangle \)PQR is the required triangle.

Q.3 Examine whether you can construct ?DEF such that EF = 7.2 cm, m\(\angle \)E = 110° and m\(\angle \)F = 80°. Justify your answer.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 10 Practical Geometry

Answer :

To construct \(\triangle \)DEF with the given measurement, is not possible.

\(\therefore m\angle E + m\angle F = 110° + 80°\)

= 190° > 180° [Sum of the angles of a triangle = 180°]

\(\therefore \triangle \)DEF is not possible to construct.
