Long Answer Type

Question 1.
Find the number of sides of a regular polygon in which each exterior angle has a measure of 40°$


exterior angle=40°
Interior angle =180 -40=140 °
Let n be the sides, then
Sum of interior angles= $(n-2) \times 180$
$140 n=(n-2) \times 180$

Question 2.
The perimeter of the parallelogram is 38 cm . One of the side is 12 cm, find the other side


In a parallelogram, oppossite sides are equal
Let x be the other side
Then $2x + 2 \times 12 =38$
$x=7$ cm

Question 3.
Diagonals of the rhombus is 10 cm and 16 cm . What is the area of the rhombus


Area of the rhombus = $ \frac {1}{2} \times d_1 \times d_2$ Where $d_1$ and $d_2$ are the diagonals Now as per the question

Question 4.
One of the angle in the parallelogram is 50°. Find the other angles in the parallelogram


Adjacent angles are supplementary, So
$x + 50=180$
So angles are 50°,130°,50°, 130°

Question 5.
In the below figure, the measure of the angle DBC
Understanding quadrilaterals class 8 worksheet


In triangle PAB
$\angle APB + 31 + 29=180$
$\angle APB=120^0$
So $\angle BPC= 180 -120=60^0$
In triangle BPC
$\angle DBC + 60 + 34=86^0$
$\angle =

Question 6.
Three angles of a quadrilateral are 50°, 40° and 123°.Find its fourth angle.


Let fourth angle be x. Then $50 + 40 + 123 + x = 360$.
or $x = 360 – 50 – 40 – 123$
$= 360 – 213 = 147$

Question 7.
In the figure, HOPE is a rectangle. Its diagonals meet at G. If HG = 5x + 1 and EG = 4x + 19, find x


Since diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other,
HP = 2HG = 2 (5x + 1) = 10x +2
and OE = 2EG = 2(4x +19) = 8x + 38
Diagonals of a rectangle are equal. So HP = OE
or 10x + 2 = 8x + 38
or 2x = 36 or x = 18

Question 8.
In the given parallelogram YOUR, $\angle RUO = 120^0$ and OY is extended to point S such that $\angle SRY = 50^0$. Find $\angle YSR$


Since in parallelogram, opposite angles are equal
$\angle RYO=120^0$
Then $\angle RYS=180 -120=60^0$
Now in a triangle RYS
$\angle YSR + \angle RYS + \angle YRS=180$
$\angle YSR= 180- 60-50=70^0$

Question 9.
The diagonals of a rhombus are 8 cm and 6 cm. Find its side.


Since diagonals bisect each other and are Perpendicular,Side is given by pythagorus theorem as
$a= \frac {1}{2} \sqrt {d_1^2 + d_2^2} = 5$ cm

Question 10.
Two angles of a quadrilateral are each of measure 75° and the other two angles are equal. What is the measure of these two angles


So $2 \times 75 + 2x=360
