Exercise (11.1)

1. Construct an angle of $\mathbf{90}{}^\circ$ at the initial point of a given ray and justify the construction.

Ans: The below given steps will be followed to construct an angle of$90{}^\circ$.

(i) Take the given ray $PQ$. Draw an arc of some radius taking point $P$ as its centre, which intersects $PQ$ at $R$.

(ii) Taking $R$ as a centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the previously drawn arc at $S$.

(iii) Taking $S$ as a centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the arc at $T$(see figure).

(iv) Taking $S$ and $T$ as the centre, draw an arc of the same radius to intersect each other at $U$.

(v) Join $PU$, which is the required ray making $90{}^\circ$ with the given ray $PQ$.

Justification

We can justify the construction, if we can prove $\angle UPQ=90{}^\circ .$ For this, join $~PS$ and $PT.$

We have, $\angle SPQ=\angle TPS=60{}^\circ .$In (iii) and (iv) steps of this

construction, $PU$was drawn as the bisector of $\angle TPS.$

$\angle UPS=\frac{1}{2}\angle TPS$

$=\frac{1}{2}\times {{60}^{o}}$

$={{30}^{o}}$

Also,

$\angle UPQ=\angle SPQ+\angle UPS$

$={{60}^{o}}+{{30}^{o}}$

$={{90}^{o}}$

2. Construct an angle of $\mathbf{45}{}^\circ$at the initial point of a given ray and justify the construction.

Ans: The below given steps will be followed to construct an angle of $45{}^\circ$.

Take the given ray $PQ$. Draw an arc of some radius taking point $P$as its centre, which intersects $PQ$ at $R$.

Taking $R$ as centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the previously drawn arc at $S$.

Taking $S$ as a centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the arc at $T$ (see figure).

Taking $S$ and $T$ as the centre, draw an arc of the same radius to intersect each other at $U$.

Join $PU$. Let it intersect the arc at point $V$.

From $R$ and $V$, draw arcs with radius more than $RV$to intersect each other at $W$. Join $PW$. $PW$ is the required ray making $45{}^\circ$with $PQ.$

Justification of Construction:

We can justify the construction if we can prove ∠WPQ = 45°. For this, join PS and PT.

We have,$\angle SPQ=\angle TPS=60{}^\circ$. In (iii) and (iv) steps of this construction, $PU$was drawn as the bisector of $\angle TPS.$

$\angle UPS=\frac{1}{2}\angle TPS$

$=\frac{1}{2}\times {{60}^{o}}$

$={{30}^{o}}$

Also,

$\angle UPQ=\angle SPQ+\angle UPS$

$={{60}^{o}}+{{30}^{o}}$

$={{90}^{o}}$

In step (vi) of this construction, PW was constructed as the bisector of ∠UPQ.

$\angle WPQ=\frac{1}{2}\angle UPQ$

$=\frac{1}{2}\times {{90}^{o}}$

$={{45}^{o}}$

Taking $S$ as centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the arc at $T$ (see figure).

Taking $S$ and $T$ as centre, draw an arc of same radius to intersect each other at $U$.

Join $PU$. Let it intersect the arc at $V$. Taking $S$ and $V$ as centre, draw arcs with radius more than $SV$. Let those intersect each other at $W$. Join $PW$ which is the required ray making $75{}^\circ$ with the given ray $PQ$ .

The angle so formed can be measured with the help of a protractor. It comes to be $75{}^\circ$.

The angle so formed can be measured with the help of a protractor. It comes to be $105{}^\circ$

(iii) $135{}^\circ$

Ans: The below given steps will be followed to construct an angle of $135{}^\circ$.

(1) Take the given ray $PQ$. Extend $PQ$ on the opposite side of $Q$. Draw a semi-circle of some radius taking point P as its centre, which intersects $PQ$ at $R$and$W$.

(2) Taking $R$ as centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the previously drawn arc at $S$.

(3) Taking $S$ as centre and with the same radius as before, draw an arc intersecting the arc at $T$ (see figure).

(4) Taking $S$ and $T$ as centre, draw an arc of same radius to intersect each other at U.

(5) Join $PU$. Let it intersect the arc at $V$. Taking $V$and $W$as centre and with radius more than $\frac{1}{2}TV$, draw arcs to intersect each other at $X$. Join $PX,$which is the required ray making $135{}^\circ$ with the given line $PQ$.

The angle so formed can be measured with the help of a protractor. It comes to be $135{}^\circ$.

5. Construct an equilateral triangle, given its side and justify the construction.

Ans: Let us draw an equilateral triangle of side $5cm$. We know that all sides of an equilateral triangle are equal. Therefore, all sides of the equilateral triangle will be $5cm$. We also know that each angle of an equilateral triangle is$60{}^\text{o}$. The below given steps will be followed to draw an equilateral triangle of $5cm$ side.

Step I: Draw a line segment $AB$of $5cm$ length. Draw an arc of some radius, while taking $A$ as its centre. Let it intersect $AB$ at $P$.

Step II: Taking $P$ as centre, draw an arc to intersect the previous arc at $E$. Join $AE$.

Step III: Taking $A$ as centre, draw an arc of $5cm$ radius, which intersects extended line segment $AE$ at $C$. Join $AC$ and $BC$. $\Delta ABC$is the required equilateral triangle of side $5cm$.

Justification of Construction:

We can justify the construction by showing $ABC$as an equilateral triangle i.e.,

$AB\text{ }=\text{ }BC\text{ }=\text{ }AC\text{ }=\text{ }5cm$

and $\angle A\text{ }=\angle B\text{ }=\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }60{}^\circ .$

In $\Delta ABC$, we have $AB\text{ }=\text{ }BC\text{ }=\text{ }AC\text{ }=\text{ }5cm$and $\angle A\text{ }=\text{ }60{}^\circ$.

Since $AC\text{ }=\text{ }AB,\angle B\text{ }=\angle C$(Angles opposite to equal sides of a triangle)

In $\Delta ABC$,

$\angle A\text{ }+\angle B\text{ }+\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }180{}^\circ$ (Angle sum property of a triangle)

$~\Rightarrow 60{}^\circ \text{ }+\angle C\text{ }+\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }180{}^\circ$

$\Rightarrow 60{}^\circ \text{ }+\text{ }2\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }180{}^\circ$

$\Rightarrow 2\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }180{}^\circ \text{ }-\text{ }60{}^\circ \text{ }=\text{ }120{}^\circ$

$\Rightarrow \angle C\text{ }=\text{ }60{}^\circ$

$\Rightarrow \angle B\text{ }=\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }60{}^\circ$

We have,$\angle A\text{ }=\angle B\text{ }=\angle C\text{ }=\text{ }60{}^\circ$... (1)

$\angle A\text{ }=\angle B$and $\angle A\text{ }=\angle C$

$BC\text{ }=\text{ }AC$and $BC\text{ }=\text{ }AB$(Sides opposite to equal angles of a triangle)

$AB\text{ }=\text{ }BC\text{ }=\text{ }AC\text{ }=\text{ }5\text{ }cm$... (2)

From Equations (1) and (2), $\Delta ABC$is an equilateral triangle
