Question 1:

Construct ΔABC, given m∠A = 60°, m∠B = 30° and AB = 5.8 cm.

Answer:

A rough sketch of the required ΔABC is as follows.

The steps of construction are as follows.

(i)Draw a line segment AB of length 5.8 cm.

(ii)At point A, draw a ray AX making 60º angle with AB.

(iii) At point B, draw a ray BY, making 30º angle with AB.

(iv) Point C has to lie on both the rays, AX and BY. Therefore, C is the point of intersection of these two rays.

This is the required triangle ABC.

Question 2:

Construct ΔPQR if PQ = 5 cm, m∠PQR = 105° and m∠QRP = 40°.

(Hint: Recall angle sum property of a triangle).

Answer:

A rough sketch of the required ΔPQR is as follows.

https://img-nm.mnimgs.com/img/study_content/curr/1/7/3/40/1474/Chapter%2010_html_1bfc9f02.jpg

In order to construct ΔPQR, the measure of ∠RPQ has to be calculated.

According to the angle sum property of triangles,

∠PQR + ∠PRQ + ∠RPQ = 180º

105º + 40º + ∠RPQ = 180º

145º + ∠RPQ = 180º

∠RPQ = 180° − 145° = 35°

The steps of construction are as follows.

(i) Draw a line segment PQ of length 5 cm.

(ii) At P, draw a ray PX making an angle of 35º with PQ.

(iii) At point Q, draw a ray QY making an angle of 105º with PQ.

(iv)Point R has to lie on both the rays, PX and QY. Therefore, R is the point of intersection of these two rays.

https://img-nm.mnimgs.com/img/study_content/curr/1/7/3/40/1474/Chapter%2010_html_m6e2c68f2.jpg

This is the required triangle PQR.

Question 3:

Examine whether you can construct ΔDEF such that EF = 7.2 cm, m∠E =

110° and m∠F = 80°. Justify your Answer.

Answer:

Given that,

m∠E = 110° and m∠F = 80°

Therefore,

m∠E + m∠F = 110° + 80° = 190°

However, according to the angle sum property of triangles, we should obtain

m∠E + m∠F + m∠D = 180°

Therefore, the angle sum property is not followed by the given triangle. And thus, we cannot construct ΔDEF with the given measurements.

Also, it can be observed that point D should lie on both rays, EX and FY, for constructing the required triangle. However, both rays are not intersecting each other. Therefore, the required triangle cannot be formed.
