## JAC Board Class 9th Maths Important Questions Chapter 6 Lines and Angles

Question 1.
Two supplementary angles are in the ratio 4 : 5, find the angles.
Solution :
Let angles be 4x and 5x.
∵ Angles are supplementary
∴ 4x + 5x = 180°
⇒ 9x = 180°
⇒ x = $$\frac {180°}{2}$$ = 20°
∴ Angles are 4 × 20° and 5 × 20° i.e., 80° and 100° Question 2.
If an angle differs from its complement by 10°, find the angle.
Solution :
Let angle be x° then its complement is 90° – x°.
Now given, x° – (90° – x°) = 10°
⇒ x° – 90° + x° = 10°
⇒ 2x° = 10° + 90° = 100°
⇒ x° = $$\frac {100°}{2}$$ = 50°
∴ Required angle is 50°.

Question 3.
In figure, OP and OQ bisects ∠BOC and ∠AOC respectively. Prove that ∠POQ = 90°. Solution :
∵ OP bisects ∠BOC
∴ ∠POC = $$\frac {1}{2}$$∠BOC ………(i)
Also OQ bisects ∠AOC
∠COQ = $$\frac {1}{2}$$∠AOC ………(ii)
∵ OC stands on AB
∴ ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180°[Linear pair]
⇒ $$\frac {1}{2}$$∠AOC + $$\frac {1}{2}$$∠BOC = $$\frac {1}{2}$$ × 180°
⇒ ∠COQ + ∠POC = 90° [Using (i) and (ii)]
⇒ ∠POQ = 90° Question 4.
In figure, lines AB, CD and EF intersect at O. Find the measures of ∠AOC, ∠DOE and ∠BOF. Solution :
Given, ∠AOE = 40° and ∠BOD = 35°
Clearly, ∠AOC = ∠BOD
(Vertically opposite angles)
⇒ ∠AOC = 35°
⇒ ∠BOF = ∠AOE
[Vertically opposite angles]
⇒ ∠BOF = 40°
Now, ∠AOB = 180° [Straight angle]
⇒ ∠AOC + ∠COF + ∠BOF = 180°
[Angles sum property]
⇒ 35° + ∠COF + 40° = 180°
⇒ ∠COF = 180° – 75° = 105°
Now, ∠DOE = ∠COF
[Vertically opposite angles]
∴ ∠DOE = 105°

Question 5.
In figure if l || m, n || p and ∠1 = 85° find ∠2. Solution :
∵ n || p and m is transversal
∴ ∠1 = ∠3 = 85° [Corresponding angles]
Also, m || l and p is transversal
∴ ∠2 + ∠3 = 180°
[Consecutive interior angles]
⇒ ∠2 + 85° = 180°
⇒ ∠2 = 180° – 85°
⇒ ∠2 = 95°
