Exercise 5.1

Question 1
Find the complement of each of the following angles
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle

Solution
The sum of the measures of complementary angles is 90º.
(i) 20°
Complement = 90° − 20°
= 70°
(ii) 63°
Complement = 90° − 63°
= 27°
(iii) 57°
Complement = 90° − 57°
= 33°
Question 2
Find the supplement of each of the following angles
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle
Solution
The sum of the measures of supplementary angles is 180º.
(i) 105°
Supplement = 180° − 105°
= 75°
(ii) 87°
Supplement = 180° − 87°
= 93°
(iii) 154°
Supplement = 180° − 154°
= 26°
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
The sum of the measures of complementary angles is 90º and that of supplementary angles is 180º.
(i) 65°, 115°
Sum of the measures of these angles = 65º + 115º = 180°
Hence, these angles are supplementary angles.
(ii) 63°, 27°
Sum of the measures of these angles = 63º + 27º = 90°
Hence, These angles are complementary angles.
(iii) 112°, 68°
Sum of the measures of these angles = 112º + 68º = 180°
Hence, These angles are supplementary angles.
(iv) 130°, 50°
Sum of the measures of these angles = 130º + 50º = 180°
Hence, These angles are supplementary angles.
(v) 45°, 45°
Sum of the measures of these angles = 45º + 45º = 90°
Hence, These angles are complementary angles.
(vi) 80°, 10°
Sum of the measures of these angles = 80º + 10º = 90°
Hence, These angles are complementary angles.
Question 4
Find the angle which is equal to its complement.
Solution
Let the angle be z.
Now As per the question,
Complement of this angle =z
Now we know that
The sum of the measures of a complementary angle pair is 90º.
So, z + z = 90°
2z = 90°
z=45°
Question 5
Find the angle which is equal to its supplement.
Solution
Let the angle be y
Supplement of this angle is also y
Now we know that
 sum of the measures of a supplementary angle pair = 180º.
So, y + y = 180°
2y = 180°
y = 90°
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.
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle

Solution
∠1 and ∠2 are supplementary angles.
If ∠1 is reduced, then ∠2 should be increased by the same measure so that this angle
pair remains supplementary.
Question 7
Can two angles be supplementary if both of them are
(i) Acute? (ii) Obtuse? (iii) Right?
Solution
The sum of the measures of supplementary angles is 180º.
So, we need to check if the angles sum up to 1800
(i) No. Acute angle is always lesser than 90º. It can be observed that two angles, even of 89º, cannot add up to 180º.
Hence, two acute angles cannot be in a supplementary angle pair.
(ii) No. Obtuse angle is always greater than 90º. It can be observed that two angles, even of 91º, will always add up to more than 180º. Therefore, two obtuse angles cannot be in a supplementary angle pair.
(iii) Yes. Right angles are of 90º and 90º + 90º = 180°
Therefore, two right angles form a supplementary angle pair together.
Question 8
An angle is greater than 45°. Is its complementary angle greater than 45° or equal to 45° or less than 45°?
Solution
Let X and Y are two angles making a complementary angle pair and X is greater than 45º. 
X > 45º
Now
X + Y = 90º
Y = 90º − X
As X > 45º
Y < 45º
Therefore, Y will be lesser than 45º.
Question 9
In the adjoining 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 to ∠4?
(vi) What is the vertically opposite angle of ∠5?

Solution
(i) Yes. Since they have a common vertex O and also a common arm OC. Also, their non-common arms, OA and OE, are on either side of the common arm.
(ii) No. They have a common vertex O and also a common arm OA. However, their noncommon arms, OC and OE, are on the same side of the common arm. Therefore, these are not adjacent to each other.
(iii) Yes. Since they have a common vertex O and a common arm OE. Also, their noncommon arms, OC and OD, are opposite rays.
(iv) Yes. Since ∠BOD and ∠DOA have a common vertex O and their non-common arms are opposite to each other.
(v) Yes. Since these are formed due to the intersection of two straight lines (AB and CD).
(vi) ∠COB is the vertically opposite angle of ∠5 as these are formed due to the intersection of two straight lines, AB and CD.
Question 10
Indicate which pairs of angles are
(i) Vertically opposite angles. (ii) Linear pairs.
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle
Solution
(i) ∠1 and ∠4, ∠5 and ∠2 +∠3 are vertically opposite angles as these are formed due to the intersection of two straight lines.
(ii) ∠1 and ∠5, ∠5 and ∠4 as these have a common vertex and also have non-common arms opposite to each other.
Question 11
In the following figure, is ∠1 adjacent to ∠2? Give reasons.
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle
Solution
∠1 and ∠2 are not adjacent angles because their vertex is not common.
Question 12
Find the value of the angles x, y, and z in each of the following
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle
NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths  Chapter 5: Line and Angle

Solution
(i) Since ∠x and ∠55° are vertically opposite angles,
∠x = 55°
∠x + ∠y = 180° (Linear pair)
55° + ∠y = 180°
∠y = 180º − 55º = 125°
∠y = ∠z (Vertically opposite angles)
∠z = 125°
(ii) ∠z = 40° (Vertically opposite angles)
∠y + ∠z = 180° (Linear pair)
∠y = 180° − 40° = 140°
40° + ∠x + 25° = 180° (Angles on a straight line)
65° + ∠x = 180°
∠x = 180° − 65° = 115°

Important question
Question 6
In the given figures below, decide whether l is parallel to m.

Solution
(i)


Consider two lines, l and m, and a transversal line n which is intersecting them. Sum of the interior angles on the same side of transversal = 126º + 44º = 170° As the sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal is not 180º, therefore, l is not parallel to m.
(ii)

y + 75° = 180° (Linear pair on line l)
y = 180° − 75° = 105°
For l and m to be parallel to each other, corresponding angles ( 750 and ∠y) should  be equal. However, here their measures are 75º and 105º respectively. Hence, these lines are not parallel to each other.
(iii)

∠y + 123° = 180° (Linear pair)
∠y = 180° − 123º = 57°
For l and m to be parallel to each other, corresponding angles (570 and ∠y) should be equal. Here, their measures are 57º and 57º respectively. Hence, these lines are parallel to each other.
iv.

98 + ∠y = 180° (Linear pair)
∠y = 82°
For l and m to be parallel to each other, corresponding angles (720 and ∠y )should be equal. However, here their measures are 72º and 82º respectively. Hence, these lines are not parallel to each other.
