Question 3.

(i) 5 sides

(ii) 6 sides

(iii) 8 sides.

Solution

Regular polygon—A closed figure of three or more than three equal sides is called regular polygon.

(i) Closed figure of 5 sides : pentagon.

(ii) Closed figure of 6 sides : hexagon.

(iii) Closed(RBSESolutions.com)figure of 8 sides : Octagon.

Question 4.

Find the value of unknown angles (w, x, y, z) in the following figures.

Solution

(i) ∵ Sum of all internal angles of a quadrilateral is 360°, therefore,

x + 120° + 130° + 50° = 360°

⇒ x+ 300° = 360°

⇒ x = 360° – 300° = 60°

(ii) ∵ Sum of all internal angles of a quadrilateral is 360°, therefore

x + 90° + 60° + 70° = 360°

⇒ x + 220° = 360°

⇒ x = 360° – 220° = 140°

(iii) ∵ Sum of all internal angles of a Pentagon = (5 – 2) 180° therefore,

30° + x + (180° – 70°) + (180° – 60°) + x = 540°

⇒ 30° + x + 110° + 120° + x = 540°

⇒ 2x + 260° = 540°

⇒ 2x = 540° – 260°

⇒ 2x = 280°

\(x=\frac { 280 }{ 2 }\)

⇒ x = 140°

(iv) ∵ Sum of angles(RBSESolutions.com)of a triangle is 180°, so

90° + 30° + (180° – y)= 180°

⇒ 300° – y = 180°

⇒ y = 300° – 180°

⇒ y = 120°; x + 90° = 180°

⇒ x = 180° – 90° = 90°;

z + 30° = 180°

z = 180° -30° = 150°

(v) x + 120° = 180°

⇒ x = 180° – 120° = 60°

y + 80° = 180°

⇒ y = 180° – 80° = 100°

z + 60° = 180°

⇒ z = 180° – 60° = 120°

∵ Sum of all internal angles of a – quadrilateral is 360° therefore,

180° – w + 120° + 80° + 60° = 360°

⇒ 440° – w = 360°

⇒ w = 440° – 360° = 80°

Question 5.

Find the number of sides of a regular polygon whose measure of each exterior angle is 45°

Solution

Let the number of sides be n

Sum of all exterior angle of n side regular polygon = 360°

∴ each exterior(RBSESolutions.com)angle = \(\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ n } \)

According to question 45° = \(\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ n } \)

⇒ 45 °n = 360°

⇒ \(n=\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ { 45 }^{ o } } =8\)

n = 8

Number of sides = 8

Question 6.

Find the number of sides of a regular polygon if its each interior angle is 165°.

Solution

Each interior angle = 165°

∴ Each exterior angle = 180° – 165° = 15°

Let the number of sides be n.

Sum of all exterior angles of polygon = 360°

∴ Value of each(RBSESolutions.com)angle = \(\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ n } \)

According to question \(\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ n } \) = 15°

⇒\(n=\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ { 15 }^{ o } } =24\)

Therefore, the number of sides be 24

Question 7.

Find the number of sides of that regular polygon whose each exterior angle is 24°.

Solution

Let the number of sides be n.

Sum of all exterior angles of a polygon = 360°

Each angle of(RBSESolutions.com)exterior = \(\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ n } \)

According to question \(\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ n } \) = 24°

⇒\(n=\frac { { 360 }^{ o } }{ { 24 }^{ o } } \)

⇒ n = 15

Therefore, number of sides = 15.

Question 8.

Find the value of every interior angle of that regular polygon which has 10 sides.

Solution

Here n = 10

Value of each internal angle of n sided

= 144°

Therefore, the value of each interior angle of a regular polygon = 144°.

Question 9.

If interior angles of any polygon is 115° then will it be regular polygon?

Solution

Measure of each interior angle of n sided

which is not a natural number.

Since, number of sides of polygon is not a whole number.

∴ Such regular(RBSESolutions.com)polygon is not possible.

Question 10.

One interior angle of a hexagon is 165° and the measure of remaining interior angle is x° then find out the measure of all the angles.

Solution

Sum of interior angles of a hexagon

= (n – 2) x 180°

= (6 – 2) x 180°

= 4 x 180° = 720°

According to question,

⇒ 165° + x° + x° + x° + x° + x° = 720°

⇒ 165° + 5x° = 720°

⇒ 5x° = 720° – 165°

⇒ 5x° = 555°

⇒ 5x = 555

⇒ \(x=\frac { 555 }{ 5 }\)

⇒ x = 111

Question 11.

By increasing the sides of a triangle in a single direction, obtained exterior angles are 110°, 115° and x°, then find the value of x.

Solution

We know sum of all exterior angles of a regular polygon = 360°

⇒ 110° + 115° + x° = 360°

⇒ 225° + x° = 360°

⇒ x° = 360° – 225°

⇒ x° = 135°

Question 12.

Find the sum of all interior angles of a regular heptagon.

Solution

Here n = 7

∴ Sum of all interior(RBSESolutions.com)angles of a regular polygon

= (n – 2) 180°

= (7 – 2) 180°

= 5 x 180°

= 900°
