(ii) Supplement of 87° = 180° – 87° = 93°

(iii) Supplement of 154° = 180° – 154° = 26°

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 3.

Identify which of the following pairs of angles are complementary and which are supplementary?

(i) 65°, 115°

(ii) 63°, 27°

(iii) 112°, 68°

(iv) 130°, 50°

(v) 45°, 45°

(vi) 80°, 10°

Solution:

(i) 65° (+) 115° = 180°

They are supplementary angles.

(ii) 63° (+) 27° = 90°

They are complementary angles.

(iii) 112° (+) 68° = 180°

They are supplementary angles.

(iv) 130° (+) 50° = 180°

They are supplementary angles.

(v) 45° (+) 45° = 90°

They are complementary angles.

(vi) 80° (+) 10° = 90°

They are complementary angles.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 4.

Find the angle which equal to its complement.

Solution:

Let the required angle be x°.

its complement = (90 – x)°

Now, re = 90 – x ⇒ x + x = 90

⇒ 2x = 90 ∴ x = \(\frac{90}{2}\) = 45°

Thus the required angles are 45°.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 5.

Find the angle which is equal to its supplement.

Solution:

Let the required angle be x°.

∴ it supplement = (180 – x)°

Now, x = 180 – x

⇒ x + x = 180

⇒ 2x = 180°

∴ \(x=\frac{180^{\circ}}{2}=90^{\circ}\)

Thus, the required angle is 90°.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 6.

In the given figure, ∠1 and ∠2 are supplementary angles.

If ∠1 is decreased, what changes should take place in∠2 so that both the angles still remain supplementary.

Solution:

∠1 + ∠2 = 180° (given)

If ∠1 is decreased by some degrees, then ∠2 will also be increased by the same degree so that the two angles still remain supplementary.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 7.

Can two angles be supplementary if both of them are:

(i) acute?

(ii) obtuse?

(iii) right?

(ii) Since, acute angle < 90°

∴ Acute angle + acute angle < 90° + 90° < 180° Thus, the two acute angles cannot be supplementary angles. (ii) Since, obtuse angle > 90°

∴ Obtuse angle + obtuse angle > 90° + 90° > 180°

Thus, the two obtuse angles cannot be supplementary angles.

(iii) Since, right angle = 90°

∴ right angle + right angle = 90° + 90° = 180°

Thus, two right angles are supplementary angles.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 8.

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

Solution:

Given angle is greater than 45°

Let the given angle be x°.

∴ x > 45

Complement of x° = 90° – x° < 45° [ ∵ x > 45°]

Thus the required angle is less than 45°.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 9.

In the following figure:

(i) Is ∠1 adjacent to ∠2?

(ii) Is ∠AOC adjacent to∠AOE?

(iii) Do ∠COE and ∠EOD form a linear pair?

(iv) Are ∠BOD and ∠DOA supplementary?

(v) Is ∠1 vertically opposite angle to ∠4?

(vi) What is the vertically opposite angle of ∠5?

Solution:

(i) Yes, ∠1 and ∠2 are adjacent angles.

(ii) No, ∠AOC is not adjacent to ∠AOE. [ ∵ OC and OE do not lie on either side of common arm OA] .

(iii) Yes, ∠COE and ∠EOD form a linear pair of angles.

(iv) Yes, ∠BOD and ∠DOA are supplementary. [∵ ∠BOD + ∠DOA = 180°]

(v) Yes, ∠1 is vertically opposite to ∠4.

(vi) Vertically opposite angle of ∠5 is ∠2 + ∠3 i.e. ∠BOC.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 10.

Indicate which pairs of angles are:

(i) Vertically opposite angles

(ii) Linear pairs

Solution:

(i) Vertically opposite angles are ∠1 and ∠4, ∠5 and (∠2 + ∠3)

(ii) Linear pairs are

∠1 and ∠5, ∠5 and ∠4

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 11.

In the following figure, is ∠1 adjacent to ∠2? Give reasons.

Solution:

No, ∠1 and∠2 are not adjacent angles.

Reasons:

(i) ∠1 + ∠2 ≠ 180°

(ii) They have no common vertex.

Ex 5.1 Class 7 Maths Question 12.

Find the values of the angles x, y and z in each of the following:

Solution:

From Fig. 1. we have

∠x = ∠55° (Vertically opposite angles)

∠x + ∠y = 180° (Adjacent angles)

55° + ∠y = 180° (Linear pair angles)

∴ ∠y = 180° – 55° = 125°

∠y = ∠z (Vertically opposite angles)

125° = ∠z

Hence, ∠x = 55°, ∠y = 125° and ∠z = 125°

(ii) 25° + x + 40° = 180° (Sum of adjacent angles on straight line)

65° + x = 180°

∴ x = 180° – 65° = 115°

40° + y = 180° (Linear pairs)

∴ y = 180° – 40° = 140°

y + z = 180° (Linear pairs)

140° + z = 180°

∴ z = 180° – 140° = 40°

Hence, x – 115°, y = 140° and z – 40°
