**Question 1.**

**In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle. ∠OAB and ∠OCB are 30° and 40° respectively. Find ∠AOC. Show your steps of working.**

**Solution:**

In circle with centre O, ∠BAO = 30°, ∠BCO = 40°.

Join BO.

OA = OB = OC (Radii of the circle)

∠OBA = ∠OAB = 30° and ∠OBC = ∠OCB = 40°

∠ABC = 30° + 40° = 70°

Now, AOC is at the centre and ∠ABC is on the remaining part of the circle.

∠AOC = 2 ∠ABC = 2 x 70° = 140°.

**Question 2.**

**In the given figure, ∠BAD = 65°, ∠ABD = 70°, ∠BDC = 45°**

**(i) Prove that AC is a diameter of the circle.**

**(ii) Find ∠ACB.**

**Solution:**

(i) In ΔABD

65° + 70° + ∠ADB = 180°

∠ADB = 180° – 65° – 70° = 45°

∠ADC = 45° + 45° = 90°

AC is diameter [Angle in semi circle is 90°]

(ii) ∠ACB = ∠ADB = 45° [angle in same segment]

**Question 3.**

**Given O is the centre of the circle and ∠AOB = 70°. Calculate the value of:**

**(i) ∠OCA,**

**(ii) ∠OAC.**

**Solution:**

O is the centre of the circle,

∠AOB = 70°

arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre

and ∠ OCA is at the remaining part of circle

∠AOB = 2 ∠OCA

or ∠OCA = ∠AOB = x 70° = 35°

In ΔOAC,

OC = OA (Radii of the same circle)

∠OAC = ∠OCA = 35°

**Question 4.**

**In each of the following figures, O is the centre of the circle. Find the values of a, b, and c.**

**Solution:**

(i) Arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part

∠AOB = 2 ∠ACB

or ∠ACB = ∠AOB = x 130° = 65°

or b = 65°

But a + b = 180° (Opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)

a = 180° – b = 180° – 65° = 115°

a = 115°, b = 65°

(ii) Arc AB subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part.

Reflex ∠AOB = 2 ∠ACB

or ∠ACB = (reflex ∠AOB) = [360°- 112°]

= x 248° = 124°

Hence, c = 124°.

**Question 5.**

**In each of the following figures, O is the centre of the circle. Find the value of a, b, c and d.**

**Solution:**

(i) BOD is a diameter

∠BAD = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)

∠ADB = 180° – (90° + 35°) = 180° – 125° = 55°

But ∠ACB = ∠ADB = 55° (Angles in the same segment)

a = 55°.

(ii) In ΔEBC.

Ext. 120° = 25° + ∠BCE

∠BCE = 120° – 25° = 95°

But ∠ADB = ∠ACB = 95° (Angles in the same segment)

b = 95°.

(iii) Arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part,

∠ AOB = 2 ∠ ACB = 2 x 50° = 100°

In ΔAOB,

OA = OB (Radii of the same circle)

∠OAB = ∠OBA

But ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180° – 100° = 80°

c = ∠OAB = ~ x 80° = 40°.

(iv) In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle.

AOB is its diameter and ∠ABP = 45°

Q is any point and BQ, PQ are joined

In ΔABP,

∠APB = 90° (Angle in a semicircle)

∠PAB + ∠PBA = 90°

⇒ ∠PAB + 45° = 90°

⇒ ∠PAB = 90° – 45°

⇒ ∠PAB = 45°

Now ∠PAB = ∠PQB (Angle in the same segment)

BPQB = 45°

⇒ d = 45°

**Question 6.**

**In the figure, AB is common chord of the two circles. If AC and AD are diameters; prove that D, B and C are in a straight line. O1 and 02 are the centres of two circles.**

**Solution:**

Given- Two circles with centre O1 and O2 intersect each other at A and B.

AC and AD are the diameters of the circles.

To Prove- D, B, C are in the same straight line.

Construction- Join AB.

Proof- AO1C is diameter.

∠ABC = 90°. (Angle in a semi-circle)

Similarly ∠ABD = 90°,

Adding, we get:

∠ABC + ∠ABD = 90° + 90° = 180°

DBC is a straight line.

or D, B, C are in the same line.

**Question 7.**

**In the figure given beow, find :**

**(i) ∠BCD,**

**(ii) ∠ADC,**

**(iii) ∠ABC.**

Show steps of your workng.

**Solution:**

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral

∠A + ∠C = 180°.

∠C = 180° – ∠A = 180° – 105° = 75°

or ∠BCD = 75°

DC || AB

∠ADC + ∠DAB = 180° (Angles on the same side of the transversal of || lines)

∠ADC = 180° – ∠DAB = 180° – 105° = 75°

But ∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)

∠ABC = 180° – ∠ADC = 180° – 75° = 105°

**Question 8.**

**In the given figure, O is centre of the circle. If ∠ AOB = 140° and ∠ OAC = 50°; find :**

**(i) ∠ ACB,**

**(ii) ∠OBC,**

**(iii) ∠OAB,**

**(iv) ∠CBA**

**Solution:**

O is the centre of circle ∠AOB = 140° and ∠OAC = 50°.

AB is joined

Reflex ∠AOB = 360° – 140° = 220°

But ∠ACB = Reflex ∠AOB = x 220° = 110°

In quad. OACB,

∠AOB + ∠OAC + ∠ACB + ∠OBC = 360°

⇒ 140° + 50° + 110° + ∠OBC = 360°

⇒ 300° + ∠OBC = 360°

⇒ ∠OBC = 360° – 300° = 60°

In ∆OAB,

∠AOB + ∠OAB + ∠OBA = 180°

But ∠OBA = ∠OAB (Angles opposite to equal sides)

140° + ∠OAB + ∠OAB = 180°

2 ∠OAB = 180° – 140° = 40°

∠OAB = = 20°

∠OAB = ∠OBA = 20°.

⇒ ∠OBC = ∠CBA + ∠ABO

⇒ 60° = ∠CBA + 20°

⇒ ∠CBA = 40°

**Question 9.**

**Calculate :**

**(i) ∠ CDB,**

**(ii) ∠ ABC,**

**(iii) ∠ ACB.**

**Solution:**

∠CDB = ∠BAC (Angles is the same segment) = 49°

∠ABC = ∠ADC (Angles in the same segment) = 43°

∠ADB = ∠ADC + ∠BDC = 43° + 49° = 92°

and ∠ADB + ∠ACB = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)

∠ACB = 180° – ∠ADB = 180° – 92° = 88°.

**Question 10.**

**In the figure given below, ABCD is a eyclic quadrilateral in which ∠BAD = 75°; ∠ABD = 58° and ∠ADC = 77°. Find:**

**(i) ∠BDC,**

**(ii) ∠BCD,**

**(iii) ∠BCA.**

**Solution:**

In cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠BAD = 75°, ∠ABD = 58° and ∠ADC = 77°.

∠A + ∠C = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)

∠C = 180° – ∠A = 180° – 75° = 105° or ∠BCD = 105°

In ΔABD,

∠BAD + ∠ABD + ∠ADB = 180°

⇒ 75° + 58° + ∠ ADB = 180°

⇒ 133° + ∠ADB = 180°

⇒ ∠ADB = 180° – 133° = 47°

∠BDC = 77° – ∠ADB = 77° – 47° = 30°

But ∠BCA = ∠BDA (Angles in the same) = 47°

**Question 11.**

**In the following figure, O is centre of the circle and ΔABC is equilateral. Find :**

**(i) ∠ADB**

**(ii) ∠AEB**

**Solution:**

∠ACB and ∠ADB are in the same segment.

∠ADB = ∠ACB. = 60°. (Angle of an equilateral triangle)

AEBD is a cyclic quadrilateral

∠AEB + ∠ADB = 180°

⇒ ∠AEB + 60° = 180°

⇒ ∠AEB = 180° – 60° = 120°.

**Question 12.**

**Given- ∠CAB = 75° and ∠CBA = 50°. Find the value of ∠DAB + ∠ABD**

**Solution:**

In ΔABC, ∠CBA = 50°, ∠CAB = 75°,

∠ACB = 180° – (∠CBA + ∠CAB) = 180° – (50° = 75°) = 180° – 125° = 55°

Bui ∠ADB = ∠ACB = 55° (Angles in the same segment)

Now in ΔABD,

∠DAB + ∠ABD + ∠ADB = 180°.

⇒ ∠DAB + ∠ABD + 55° = 180°

⇒ ∠DAB + ∠ABD = 180° – 55° = 125°.

**Question 13.**

**ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in a circle with centre O. If ∠ADC = 130°; find ∠BAC.**

**Solution:**

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral and ∠ADC = 130°

O is centre of the circle, AOB is diameter.

∠ABC = 180° – 130° = 50°.

In ΔABC,

∠ACB = 90° (angle in semicircle)

∠BAC + ∠CBA = 90°.

∠BAC + 50° = 90°

∠BAC = 90° – 50° = 40°.

**Question 14.**

**In the figure given below, AOB is a diameter of the circle and ∠AOC = 110°. Find ∠BDC.**

**Solution:**

∠AOC + ∠COB = 180° (Linear pair)

∠COB = 180° – ∠AOC = 180° – 110° = 70°

Arc BC subtends ∠COB at the centre and x at the remaining part of circle

∠COB = 2x

⇒ x = ∠COB = x 70° = 35°

**Question 15.**

**In the following figure, O is centre of the circle, ∠AOB = 60° and ∠BDC = 100°. Find ∠OBC.**

**Solution:**

Arc AB subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of circle,

∠AOB = 2 ∠ACB

or ∠ACB = ∠AOB = x 60° = 30°

Now in ΔDBC,

∠DBC + ∠ACB + ∠BDC = 180°

⇒ ∠DBC + 30° + 100° = 180°

⇒ ∠DBC = 180° – 130° = 50°

or ∠OBC = 50°.

**Question 16.**

**ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which ∠DAC = 27°; ∠DBA = 50° and ∠ADB = 33°. Calculate :**

**(i) ∠DBC,**

**(ii) ∠DCB,**

**(iii) ∠CAB.**

**Solution:**

(i) ∠ CBD = ∠ DAC = 27° (Angles in the same segment)

(ii) In ΔADB,

∠ABD + ∠BAD + ∠BDA = 180°.

⇒ 50° + ∠BAD + 33° = 180°

⇒ ∠BAD + 83° = 180°

⇒ ∠BAD = 180° – 83° = 97°

In cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠BAD + ∠DCB = 180°

⇒ 97° + ∠DCB = 180°

⇒ ∠DCB = 180°- 97° = 83°

(iii) ∠BAD = 97°

⇒ ∠BAC + ∠CAD = 97°

⇒ ∠BAC + 27° = 97°

⇒ ∠BAC = 97° – 27° = 70°

∠CAB = 70°.

**Question 17.**

**In the figure given below, AB is diameter of the circle whose centre is O. Given that:**

**∠ECD = ∠EDC = 32°. Show that ∠COF = ∠CEF.**

**Solution:**

Given- AB is the diameter of a circle with centre O

and ∠ECD = ∠EDC = 32°

To Prove- ∠COF = ∠CEF

Proof- Arc CF subtends ∠COF at the centre and ∠CDF at the remaining part of the circle.

∠COF = 2 ∠CDF = 2 x ∠EDC = 2 x 32° = 64° ….. (i)

In ΔCED,

Ext. ∠CEF = ∠CDF + ∠DCE = ∠EDC + ∠ECD = 32° + 32° = 64° ….(ii)

from (i) and (ii)

∠CDF = ∠CEF

**Question 18.**

**In the figure given below, AB and CD arc straight lines through the centre O of a circle. If ∠AOC = 80° and ∠CDE = 40°, find the number of degrees in:**

**(i) ∠DCE,**

**(ii) ∠ABC.**

**Solution:**

In circle, COD is the diameter.

∠CED = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)

In right A CDE,

∠ DCE + ∠ EDC = 90°

⇒ ∠ DCE + 40° = 90°

∠ DCE = 90° – 40° = 50°

In ΔOBC.

Ext. ∠COA = ∠OBC + ∠OCB

⇒ 80° = ∠OBC + 50°

⇒ ∠OBC = 80° – 50° = 30°

or ∠ABC = 30°

**Question 19.**

**In the given figure, AC is a diameter of a circle, whose centre is O. A circle is described on AO as diameter. AE, a chord of the larger circle, intersects the smaller circle at B. Prove that AB = BE.**

**Solution:**

Given- AC is a diameter of a circle with centre O.

AE is a chord which intersects the smaller circle with AO as diameter at B.

To Prove- AB = BE.

Construction- Join OB.

Proof- ∠ABO = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)

OB ⊥ AE

OB bisects chord AE

Hence, AB = BE.

**Question 20.**

**In the following figure,**

**(i) if ∠ BAD = 96°, find ∠BCD and ∠BFE,**

**(ii) Prove that AD is parallel to FE.**

**Solution:**

Given- In the figure, ∠BAD = 96°

To Prove-

(i) Find ∠BCD and ∠BFE

(ii) AD || EF

Proof- ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.

∠BAD + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ 96° + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 96° = 84°

Again BCEF is a cyclic quadrilateral,

Ext. ∠BCD = Int. opposite ∠BFE

∠BFE = 84°.

∠BAD + ∠BFE = 96° + 84° = 180°

But these are on same side of the transversal.

AD || FE.

**Question 21.**

**Prove that**

**(i) the parallelogram, inscribed in a circle, is a rectangle.**

**(ii) the rhombus, inscribed in a circle, is a square.**

**Solution:**

(i) ABCD is a parallelogram in a circle with centre O.

To Prove- ABCD is a rectangle.

Proof- ABCD is a cyclic parallelogram.

∠A + ∠C = 180°.

But ∠A = ∠C (opposite angles of a ||gm)

∠A = ∠C = 90°

Similarly we can prove that

∠B = ∠D = 90°

Each angle of a ||gm is right angle

Hence ABCD is a rectangle.

(ii) Given- ABCD is a cyclic rhombus.

To Prove- ABCD is a square.

Proof- ABCD is cyclic rhombus

∠A + ∠C = 180°

But ∠A = ∠C (opposite angles of rhombus)

∠A = ∠C = 90°

Similarly we can prove that ∠B = ∠D = 90°

Each angle of a rhombus is a right angle

ABCD is a square.

**Question 22.**

**In the following figure, AB = AC. Prove that DECB is an isosceles trapezium.**

**Solution:**

Given- In the figure, AB = AC.

To Prove- DECB is an isosceles trape∠ium.

Proof- In ∆ABC,

AB = AC

∠B = ∠C

DECB is a cyclic quadrilateral.

∠B + ∠DEC = 180°

∠C + ∠DEC = 180°

But this is the sum of interior angles on one side of a transversal.

DE || BC ….(i)

But ∠ADE = ∠B

and ∠AED = ∠C (Corresponding angles)

∠ADE = ∠AED (∠B = ∠C)

AD = AE (Opposite to equafangles)

But AB = AC (Given)

AB – AD = AC – AE

⇒ DB = EC ….(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

DECB is an isosceles trape∠ium.

**Question 23.**

**Two circles intersect at P and Q. Through P diameters PA and PB of the two circles are draw n. Show that the points A, Q and B are collinear.**

From P, PA and PB are two diameters are drawn.

To Prove- A, Q and B are collinear.

Construction-

Join PQ, AQ and BQ.

Proof- In first circle.

∠PAQ = 90° (Angle in a semi circle) ….(i)

Similarly, in second circle, ∠PBQ = 90° ….(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii).

∠PAQ + ∠PBQ = 90° + 90° = 180°

But, there are adjacent angles

AQB is a straight line.

Hence A, Q and B are collinear.

Hence proved.

**Question 24.**

**ABCD is a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle, having ∠A = 60°; O is the centre of the circle. Show that:**

**∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD + ∠CDB.**

**Solution:**

Given- ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which ∠A = 60°

and O is the centre of the circle.

BD, OB and OD are joined.

To Prove- ∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD + ∠CDB

Proof- Arc BCD subtends ∠BOD at the centre and ∠BAD at remaining part of the circle.

∠BOD = 2 ∠BAD = 2 x 60° = 120°

In ∆BOD,

∠BOD = 120°

∠OBD + ∠ ODB = 180° – 120° = 60° …. (i)

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral

∠A + ∠C = 180°

⇒ 60° + ∠C = 180°

⇒ ∠C = 180° – 60° = 120°

In ∆BCD,

∠CBD + ∠CDB + ∠ C = 180°.

∠CBD + ∠CDB + 120° = 180°

∠CBD + ∠CDB = 180° – 120° = 60° ….(ii)

From (i) and (ii),

∠OBD + ∠ODB = ∠CBD + ∠CDB

**Question 25.**

**The figure given below, shows a circle with centre O.**

**Given- ∠AOC = a and ∠ABC = b.**

**(i) Find the relationship between a and b. :**

**(ii) Find the measure of angle OAB, if OABC is a parallelogram.**

**Solution:**

(i) ∠AOC = a, ∠ABC = b

Reflex ∠AOC = 360° – a

Now arc AC subtends reflex ∠AOC at the centre and ∠ABC at the remaining part of the circle

∠ABC = ref. ∠AOC

b = (360° – a)

⇒ 2b = 360° – a

⇒ a + 2b = 360° ….(i)

(ii) If OABC is a || gm,

then ∠AOC = ∠ABC

⇒ a = b

Substituting the value of a, in ….(i)

b + 2b = 360°

⇒ 3b = 360°

⇒ b = 120°

But ∠OAB + ∠ABC = 180° (Angles in a || gm)

⇒ ∠OAB + b = 180°

⇒ ∠OAB + 120° = 180°

⇒ ∠OAB = 180° – 120° = 60°.

**Question 26.**

**Two chords AB and CD intersect at P inside the circle. Prove that the sum of the angles subtended by the arcs AC and BD at the centre O is equal to twice the angle APC.**

**Solution:**

Given- Two chords AB and CD intersect each other at P inside the circle, OA, OB, OC and OD are joined.

To Prove- ∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2 ∠APC.

Construction- Join AD

Proof- Arc AC subtends ∠AOC at the centre and ∠ADC at the remaining pari of the circle

∠AOC = 2 ∠ADC ….(i)

Similarly, ∠BOD = 2 ∠BAD ….(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii),

∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2 ∠ADC

⇒ 2 ∠ BAD = 2 (∠ADC + ∠BAD) ….(iii)

But in ∆PAD,

Ext. ∠APC = ∠PAD + ∠ADC = ∠ADC + ∠BAD …(iv)

from (iii) and (iv)

∠AOC + ∠BOD = 2 ∠APC

**Question 27.**

**In the given figure, RS is a diameter of the circle. NM is parallel to RS and ∠MRS = 29°.**

**Calculate:**

**(i) ∠RNM,**

**(ii) ∠NRM.**

**Solution:**

Join RN and MS. .

(i) RS is the diameter

∠RMS = 90° (Angle in semi circle)

∠RSM + ∠MRS = 90°

∠RSM = 90° – 29° = 61°

But ∠RSM + ∠RNM = 180° (Angles in a cyclic quad.)

61° + ∠RNM = 180°

⇒ ∠RNM = 180° – 61 = 119°

NM || RS

∠NMR = ∠MRS = 29° (Alt. angles)

In ∆RNM,

∠NRM + ∠RNM + ∠NMR = 180°

⇒ ∠NRM + 119° + 29° = 180°

⇒ ∠NRM + 148° = 180°

⇒ ∠NRM = 180° – 148° = 32°.

**Question 28.**

**In the figure given alongside, AB // CD and O is the centre of the circle. If ∠ADC = 25°; find the angle AEB. Give reasons in support of your answer.**

**Solution:**

AB || CD.

∠BAD = ∠ADC (Alternate angles) = 25° (∠ADC = 25° given)

Join AC and BD.

∠CAD = 90° (Angle in semi circle)

∠CAB = ∠CAD + ∠DAB = 90° + 25° = 115°

Now in cyclic quad. CABD.

∠CAB + ∠BDC = 180°

⇒ ∠CAB + ∠BDA + ∠ADC = 180°

⇒ 115° + ∠BDA + 25° = 180°

⇒ ∠BDA + 140° = 180°

⇒ ∠BDA = 180° – 140° = 40°

∠AEB and ∠BDA are in tire same segment of a circle

∠AEB = ∠BDA = 40° (proved)

Hence ∠AEB = 40°.

**Question 29.**

In cyclic quad. PBDQ,

Ext. ∠PQC = ∠ B …… (ii)

from (i),

∠A + ∠B = 180°.

But these are interior angles on the same side of a transversal.

AC || BD.

To Prove- AD || BC

Proof- In ∆PAD,

PA = PD (given)

∠A = ∠D (angles opposite to equal sides)

ADCB is a cyclic quad.

Ext. ∠PCB = ∠A = ∠D

But these are corresponding angles. ,

BC || AD or AD || BC.

**AB is a diameter of the circle APBR as shown in the figure. APQ and RBQ are straight lines. Find:**

**(i) ∠PRB,**

**(ii) ∠ PBR,**

**(iii) ∠ BPR.**

**Solution:**

∠PRB = ∠BAP (Angles in the same segment)

∠PRB = 35°

In ∆ABP,

∠APB = 90° (Angle in semi circle)

∠BPQ = 90°.

In ∆PQR,

∠R + ∠Q + ∠RPQ = 180°

⇒ 35° + 25° + ∠RPQ = 180°

⇒ ∠RPQ = 180° – 60° = 120°

⇒ ∠BPR = ∠RPQ – ∠BPQ = 120° – 90° = 30°

In ∆PBR,

∠PBR = 180° – (∠R + ∠BPR) = 180° – (35° + 30°) = 180° – 65° = 115°

**Question 32.**

**In the given figure SP is bisector of ∠RPT and PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral. Prove that SQ = SR.**

**Solution:**

Given- SP is the bisector of ∠RPT and PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral.

To Prove SQ = SR.

Proof- In cyclic quad. PQRS,

Ext. ∠SPT = ∠QRS

But ∠RPS = ∠SPT (PS is the bisector of ∠RPT)

∠QRS = ∠RPS ….(i)

But ∠RPS = ∠RQS (Angles in the same segment)

∠QRS = ∠RQS

Now in ∆QRS,

∠QRS = ∠RQS (proved)

SQ = SR (Sides opposite to equal angles)

**Question 33.**

**In the figure, O is the centre of the circle, ∠AOE = 150°, ∠DAO = 51°. Calculate the si∠es of the angles CEB and OCE.**

**Solution:**

In the figure, ∠AOE = 150°, ∠DAO = 51°

Now in cyclic quad. ADEB,

Ext. ∠CEB = Int. Opp ∠DAO = 51°.

In ∆OEB,

Ext. ∠AOE = ∠OBE + ∠OEB

= ∠OBE + ∠OBE (OB = OE) = 2 ∠OBE

2 ∠OBE = 150°

⇒ ∠ OBE = 75°

∠EBC = 180° – 75° = 105°

Now in ∆EBC,

∠CEB + ∠OCE + ∠EBC = 180°

⇒ 51° + ∠OCE + 105° = 180°

⇒ ∠OCE + 156° = 180°

⇒ ∠OCE = 180° – 156° = 24°.

**Question 34.**

**In the figure, given below, P and Q arc the centres of two circles intersecting at B and C. ACD is a straight line. Calculate the numerical value of x.**

**Solution:**

In circle with centre P,

Arc AB subtends ∠APB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of the circle.

∠APB = 2 ∠ACB

⇒ ∠ACB = ∠APB = x 150° = 75°

But ∠ACB + ∠DCB = 180° (Linear pair)

∠DCB = 180° – ∠ACB = 180° – 75° = 105°

In circle with centre O,

Arc BD subtends ∠ BQD at the centre and ∠ DCB at the remaining part of the circle

∠BQD = 2 ∠DCB = 2 x 105° = 210°

But x + ∠BQD = 360° (Angles at a point)

⇒ x + 210° = 360°

⇒ x = 360° – 210° = 150°.

**Question 35.**

**The figure shows two circles which intersect at A and B. The centre of the smaller circle is O and lies on the circumference of the larger circle. Given ∠APB = a°. ****Calculate, in terms of a°, the value of :**

**(i) obtuse ∠AOB,**

**(ii) ∠ACB,**

**(iii) ∠ADB.**

**Give reasons for your answers clearly.**

**Solution:**

Arc AB in small circle subtends ∠AOB at the centre and ∠APB at the remaining part of the circle.

(i) ∠AOB = 2 ∠APB = 2a° (∠APB = a°)

∠APB = (2a)°

(ii) In larger circle, AOBC is a cyclic quad.

∠AOB + ∠ACB = 180°.

⇒ 2a° + ∠ACB = 180°

∠ACB = 180° – 2a° = (180° – 2a°)

(iii) But ∠ ACB and ∠ ADB are in the same segment

∠ADB = ∠ ACB = (180° – 2a°)

**Question 36.**

**In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle and ∠ABC = 55°. Calculate the values of x and y.**

**Solution:**

In ∆OBC,

OB = OC (radii of the same circle)

∠OBC = ∠BCO or ∠ABC = ∠BCO

∠BCO = ∠ABC = 55°

Now in ∆OBC,

Ext. AOC = ∠OBC + ∠BCO = 55° + 55° = 110°

x = 110°

Now in cyclic quad, ABCD,

∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180°

⇒ y + 55° = 180°

⇒ y = 180° – 55° = 125°

**Question 37.**

**In the given figure, A is the centre of the circle, ABCD is a parallelogram and CDE is a straight line. Prove that: ∠BCD = 2 ∠ABE.**

**Solution:**

Given- A is the centre of the circle and ABCD is a parallelogram.

CDE is a straight line.

To Prove- ∠BCD = 2 ∠ABE.

Proof- AB || DC (opposite sides of a || gm)

∠ABE = ∠BED (Alternate angles) ….(i)

ABCD is a || gm (given)

∠BAD = ∠BCD (opposite angles of a ||gm) ….(ii)

Now arc BD subtends ∠BAD at the centre and ∠BED at the remaining part of the circle

∠BAD = 2 ∠BED

from (i) and (ii)

∠BCD = 2 ∠ABE

**Question 38.**

**ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which AB is parallel to DC and AB is a diameter of the circle. Given ∠BED = 65°; calculate :**

**(i) ∠DAB,**

**(ii) ∠BDC.**

**Solution:**

∠DAB and ∠BED are in the same segment of the circle.

∠DAB = ∠BED = 65° (∠BED = 65° given)

DC || AB (Given)

∠BDC = ∠DBA (Alternate angles)

In ∆ADB,

AOB is the diameter

∠ADB = 90° (Angle in semi circle)

∠DAB + ∠DBA = 90°

⇒ 65° + ∠DBA = 90°

⇒ ∠DBA = 90° – 65° = 25°

But ∠DBA = ∠BDC (proved)

∠BDC = 25°

**Question 39.**

**In the given figure, AB is a diameter of the circle. Chord ED is parallel to AB and ∠EAB = 63°. Calculate:**

**(i) ∠EBA,**

**(ii) ∠BCD.**

**Solution:**

AOB is the diameter,

∠AEB = 90°

and ∠EAB + ∠EBA = 90°

⇒ 63° + ∠EBA = 90°

⇒ ∠EBA = 90° – 63° = 27°

ED || AB (given)

∠DEB = ∠EBA (Alternate angles) = 27°

In cyclic quad. EBCD,

∠DEB + ∠BCD = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)

⇒ 27° + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 27° = 153°.

**Question 40.**

**The sides AB and DC of a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD are produced to meet at E; the sides DA and CB arc produced to meet at F. If ∠BEG = 42° and ∠BAD = 98°; calculate :**

**(i) ∠AFB,**

**(ii) ∠ADC.**

**Solution:**

In ∆AED,

∠ADE + ∠AED + ∠EAD = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

⇒ ∠ADE + 42° + 98° = 180°

⇒ ∠ADE + 140° = 180°

⇒ ∠ ADE = 180° – 140° = 40° or ∠ADC = 40°

In cyclic quad. ABCD.

∠BAD + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ 98° + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 98° = 82°

Now in ∆FCD,

∠DFC + ∠FDC + ∠FCD = 180°

⇒ ∠AFB + ∠ADC + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠AFB + 40° + 82° = 180°

⇒ ∠AFB + 122° = 180°

⇒ ∠AFB = 180° – 122° = 58°

**Question 41.**

**In the following figure, AB is a diameter of the circle with centre O. DO is parallel to CB and ∠DCB = 120°. Calculate :**

**(i) ∠DAB,**

**(ii) ∠DBA,**

**(iii) ∠DBC,**

**(iv) ∠ADC. Also, show that the ∆AOD is an equilateral triangle.**

**Solution:**

(i) ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral,

∠DCB + ∠DAB = 180°

⇒ 120° + ∠DAB = 180°

∠DAB =180° – 120° = 60°

(ii) AOB is a diameter.

∠ADB = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)

∠ DAB + ∠DBA = 90°

60° + ∠ DBA = 90°

∠DBA = 90° – 60° = 30°

(iii) In ∆OBD,

OD = OB (radii of the same circle)

∠ ODB = ∠ OBD

or ∠ABD = 30° (from ii)

But DO || CB (given)

∠ODB = ∠DBC (Alternate angles)

⇒ 30° = ∠DBC or ∠DBC = 30°

(iv) ∠ABD + ∠DBC = 30° + 30° = 60°

⇒ ∠ABC = 60°

Again in cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180°

∠ADC + 60° = 180°

∠ ADC = 180° – 60° = 120°

In ∆AOD,

OA = OD (radii of the same circle)

∠ AOD = ∠ DAO or ∠ DAB = 60° (proved in (i))

∠ADO = 60° (Third angle)

∠ADO = ∠AOD = ∠DAO = 60°

∆AOD is an equilateral triangle.

**Question 42.**

**In the given figure, I is the incentre of ∆ABC. BI when produced meets the circum circle of ∆ABC at D.**

**Given ∠BAC = 55° and ∠ACB = 65°; calculate:**

**(i) ∠DCA,**

**(ii) ∠DAC,**

**(iii) ∠DCI,**

**(iv) ∠AIC**

**Solution:**

Join AD, DC, AI and Cl,

In ∆ABC,

∠BAC = 55°, ∠ACB = 65°

∠ABC = 180° – (∠BAC + ∠ACB) = 180°- (55° + 65°) = 180° – 120° = 60°

In cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠ABC + ∠ADC = 180°

⇒ 60° + ∠ADC = 180°

∠ADC = 180° – 60°= 120°

In ∆ADC,

∠ DAC + ∠ DCA + ∠ ADC = 180°

⇒ ∠ DAC+ ∠ DCA + 120° = 180°

⇒ ∠ DAC+ ∠ DCA = 180° – 120° = 60°

But ∠ DAC = ∠ DCA (I lies on the bisector of ∠ ABC)

∠ DAC = ∠ DCA = 30°

DI is perpendicular bisector of AC

∠ AIC = ∠ ADC= 120°

IC is the bisector of ∠ ACB

∠ ICA = = 32.5°

∠DCI = ∠DCA + ∠ACI = 30° + 32.5° = 62.5° = (62.5)° = 60° 30′.

**Question 43.**

**A triangle ABC is inscribed in a circle. The bisectors of angles BAC, ABC and ACB meet the circum circle of the triangle at points P, Q and R respectively. Prove that:**

**(i) ∠ ABC = 2 ∠ APQ,**

**(ii) ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APR,**

**(iii) ∠ QPR = 90° – ∠BAC.**

**Solution:**

Given- ∆ABC is inscribed in a circle. Bisectors of ∠BAC, ∠ABCand ∠ACB meet the circumcircle of the∆ABC at P, Q and R respectively.

To Prove-

(i) ∠ ABC = 2 ∠APQ.

(ii) ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APR.

(iii) ∠ QPR = 90° – ∠BAC.

Construction-

Join PQ and PR.

Proof- ∠ABQ and ∠APQ are in the same segment of the circle.

∠ ABQ = ∠ APQ

But ∠ ABQ = – ∠ ABC (BQ is the angle bisector of ∠ ABC)

∠ ABC = ∠ APQ

Or ∠ ABC = 2 ∠APQ …,(i)

Similarly, ∠ APR and ∠ ACR are in the same segment of the circle.

∠ APR = ∠ ACR

But ∠ ACR = ∠ ACB (CR is the angles bisector of ∠ ACB)

∠ ACB = ∠ APR

Or ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APR ….(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii)

∠ ABC + ∠ ACB = 2 ∠ APQ + 2∠ APR = 2 (∠ APQ + ∠ APR) = 2 ∠ PQR

Or 2 ∠ PQR = ∠ ABC + ∠ ACB

∠ PQR = (∠ ABC + ∠ ACB) ….(iii)

But ∠ ABC + ∠ ACB + ∠ BAC = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

∠ ABC + ∠ ACB = 180° – ∠ BAC ….(iv)

from (iii) and (iv) we get,

∠ PQR = (180° – ∠ BAC) = 90° – ∠ BAC

**Question 44.**

**Calculate the angles x, y and z if :**

**Solution:**

Ext. ∠ ADC = x + z ….(i)

and in ΔBPC,

Ext. ∠ ABC = y + x ….(ii)

(∠ BCP = ∠ DCQ = x vertically opposite angles)

Adding (i) and (ii),

x + z + y + x = ∠ ADC + ∠ ABC.

But ∠ ADC + ∠ ABC = 180° (opposite angles of a cyclic quad)

2x + y + z = 180°

⇒ 2 x 3k + 4k + 5k = 180°

⇒ 6k + 4k + 5k = 180°

⇒ 15k = 180°

⇒ k = 12°

x = 3k = 3 x 12° = 36°= x = 36°

y = 4k = 4 x 12° = 48°= y = 48°

z = 5k = 5 x 12° = 60° = z = 60°

**Question 45.**

**In the given figure, AB = AC = CD and ∠ADC = 38°. Calculate :**

**(i) Angle ABC**

**(ii) Angle BEC [1995]**

**Solution:**

In the figure, AB = AC = CD, ∠ ADC = 38°

BE is joined.

In ΔACD, AC = CD

∠CAD = ∠CDA = 38°

Ext. ∠ ACB = ∠ CAD + ∠ CDA = 38° + 38° = 76°

But in ΔABC,

AB = AC (given)

∠ ABC = ∠ ACB = 76°

and ∠ BAC =180° – (76° + 76°) = 180° – 152° = 28°

But ∠ BEC = ∠ BAC (Angles in the same segment)

∠BEC = 28°.

**Question 46.**

**In the given figure. AC is the diameter of circle, centre O. Chord BD is perpendicular to AC. Write down the angles p, q and r in terms of x. [1996]**

**Solution:**

Arc subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of the circle.

∠ AOB = 2 ∠ ACB

⇒ x = 2q ⇒ q =

But ∠ ADB and ∠ ACB are in the same segment

∠ ADB = ∠ ACB – q

Now in ΔAED,

p + q + 90° = 180° (sum of angles of a Δ)

⇒ p + q = 90°

⇒ p = 90° – q

⇒ p = 90° –

Arc BC subtends ∠ BOC at the centre and ∠ ADC at the remaining part of the circle

∠BOC = 2 ∠BDC = 2r.

r = ∠ BOC = (180° – x)

(∠ AOB + ∠ BOC = 180°)

r = 90° – x. = 90° –

**Question 47.**

**In the given figure, AC is the diameter of the circle with centre O. CD and BE are parallel. Angle ∠ AOB = 80° and ∠ ACE = 10°. Calculate:**

**(i) Angle BEC,**

**(ii) Angle BCD,**

**(iii) Angle CED. [1998]**

**Solution:**

Arc AB subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ACB at the remaining part of the circle.

∠ ACB = ∠AOB = x 80° = 40°

But ∠ BOC + ∠ AOB = 180° (A linear pair)

∠ BOC + 80° = 180°

⇒ ∠ BOC = 180° – 80° = 100°

(i) Arc BC subtends ∠ BOC at the centre and ∠ BEC at the remaining part of the circle

∠ BEC = ∠ BOC = x 100° = 50°

(ii) EB || DC

∠ DCE = ∠ BEC (Alternate angles) = 50°

∠ BCD = ∠ BCA + ∠ ACE + ∠ ECD = 40° + 10° + 50° = 100°

(iii) In cyclic quad. CDE,

∠ BED + ∠ BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠ BEC + ∠ CED + ∠ BCD = 180°

⇒ 50° + ∠ CED + 100° = 180° (Proved in (i) and (ii))

⇒ ∠ CEb + 150° = 180°

∠ CED = 180° – 150° = 30°.

**Question 48.**

**In the given figure, AE is the diameter of the circle. Write down the numerical value of ∠ ABC + ∠ CDE. Give reasons for your answer. [1998]**

**Solution:**

Join OA, OB, OC, OD.

In ΔOAB,

OA = OB (Radii of the same circle)

∠ 1 = ∠ 2

Similarly we can prove that

∠3 = ∠4,

∠5 = ∠6,

∠7 = ∠8

In A OAB,

∠1 + ∠2 + ∠a = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

Similarly ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠b = 180°

∠5 + ∠6 + ∠c = 180°

∠7 + ∠8 + ∠d = 180°

Adding we get

∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠5 + ∠6 + ∠7 + ∠8 + ∠a + ∠b + ∠c + ∠d = 4 x 180° = 720°

⇒∠2 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠3 + ∠6 + ∠6+ ∠ 7 + ∠7 + ∠a + ∠b + ∠c + ∠d = 720°

⇒ 2 ∠2 + 2 ∠3 + 2 ∠6 + 2 ∠7 + ∠a + ∠ b + ∠ c + ∠ d = 720°

⇒ 2 [∠2 + ∠3] + 2 [∠6 + ∠7| + 180° = 720° ( ∠a + ∠b + ∠c + ∠d = 180°)

⇒ 2 ∠ ABC + 2 ∠ CDE = 720° – 180° = 540°

⇒ 2 (∠ ABC + ∠ CDE) = 540°

⇒ ∠ ABC + ∠ CDE = 270°

**Question 49.**

**In the given figure, AOC is a diameter and AC is parallel to ED. If ∠ CBE = 64°, calculate ∠ DEC. [1991]**

**Solution:**

Join AB.

AOC is the diameter

∠ ABC = 90° (Angle in a semi circle)

⇒ ∠ ABE + ∠ CBE = 90°

⇒ ∠ ABE + 64° = 90°

∠ ABE = 90° – 64° = 26° …(i)

AC || ED

∠ DEC = ∠ ACE (alternate angles)

But ∠ ACE = ∠ ABE (Angles in the same segment)

∠ DEC = ∠ ABE = 26° [from (i)]

**Question 50.**

**Use the given figure to find :**

**(i) ∠ BAD,**

**(ii) ∠ DQB. [1987]**

**Solution:**

In ΔAPD,

∠ ADP + ∠ DPA + ∠ PAD = 180°

85° + 40° + ∠ PAD = 180°

∠ PAD = 180° – (85° + 40°) = 180° – 125° = 55° or ∠ BAD = 55°

In cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠ ADC + ∠ ABC = 180°

85° + ∠ ABC = 180°

∠ ABC = 180° – 85° = 95°

Now, in ΔAQB,

∠ QAB + ∠ ABC + ∠ BQA = 180°

⇒ 55° + 95° + ∠ BQA = 180°

⇒ 150° + ∠ BQA = 180°

⇒ ∠DQB = ∠ BQA = 180° – 150° = 30°

**Question 51.**

**In the given figure, AOB is a diameter and DC is parallel to AB. If ∠ CAB = x°; find (in terms of x) the values of:**

**(i) ∠ COB,**

**(ii) ∠DOC,**

**(iii) ∠DAC,**

**(iv) ∠ADC. [1991]**

**Solution:**

Join CB.

In ΔAOC,

OA = OC (radii of the same circle)

∠ OCA = 4 OAC = x

Ext. ∠ COB = ∠ OAC + ∠ OCA = x + x = 2x

In ΔACB, ∠ ACB = 90° (Angle in semi circle)

∠ OBC = 90° – ∠ OAC = 90° – x

In cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠ ABC + ∠ ADC = 180°

⇒ ∠OBC + ∠ADC =180°

⇒ (90 – x) + 4 ADC = 180°

∠ADC = 180° – 90° + x = 90° + x

DC || AB

∠ DCO = ∠ COB = 2x (alternate angle)

And ∠ DCA = ∠ CAB = x (alternate angles)

In ΔADC,

∠ DAC + ∠ DCA + ∠ ADC = 180°

∠ DAC + x + 90 + x = 180°

2x + 90° + ∠ DAC = 180°

∠ DAC = 180° – 90° – 2x = 90° – 2x

In ΔOCD,

∠ DOC + ∠ OCD + ∠ CDO = 180°

∠ DOC + 2x + 2x = 180°

∠ DOC = 180° – 4x

Hence ∠ COB = 2x,

∠ DOC = 180° – 4x

∠ DAC = 90° – 2x

and ∠ ADC = 90° + x

**Question 52.**

**In the given figure, AB is the diameter of a circle with centre O. ∠BCD = 130°. Find :**

**(i) ∠DAB**

**(ii) ∠DBA**

**Solution:**

Join DB

(i) ∠DAB + ∠DCB = 180° [Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary]

∠DAB = 180° – 130° = 50°

(ii) In ΔADB,

∠ADB = 90° [Angle in a semi-circle is 90°]

So, ∠DBA = 180° – (∠DAB + ∠ADB) = 180° – (50° + 90°) = 40°

**Question 53.**

**In the given figure, PQ is a diameter of the circle whose centre is O. Given ∠ROS = 42°, calculate ∠RTS. [1992]**

**Solution:**

In ΔOPR, OR = OP (radii of the same circle)

∠ OPR = ∠ ORP = x (Say)

∠POR = 180° – 2x

Similarly in ΔOQS,

OS = OQ

∠ OSQ = ∠ SQO = y (say)

∠ SOQ = 180° – 2y

POQ is a straight line,

∠ POR + ∠ ROS + ∠ SOQ = 180°

⇒ 180° – 2x + 42° + 180° – 2y = 180°

⇒ 222° – 2x – 2y = 0

⇒ 2 (x + y) = 222°

x + y = 111° ….(i)

In. ΔPQT,

⇒ ∠P + ∠Q + ∠T = 180°

⇒ ∠ OPR + ∠ SQO + ∠ RTS = 180°

⇒ x + y + ∠RTS = 180°

⇒ ∠ RTS = 180° – (x + y) = 180° – 1110 [From(i)] = 69°

**Question 54.**

**In the given figure, PQ is a diameter. Chord SR is parallel to PQ. Given that ∠ PQR = 58°, Calculate:**

**(i) ∠RPQ,**

**(ii) ∠STP. [1989]**

**Solution:**

Join PR,

In ΔPQR,

∠ PRQ = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)

∠ RPQ + ∠ RQP = 90°

⇒ ∠RPQ + 58° = 90°

⇒ ∠RPQ = 90° – 58° = 32°

SR || PQ (given)

∠ SRP = ∠ RPQ (Alternate angles) = 32° [from(i)]

Now, in cyclic quad. PRST,

∠ STP + ∠ SRP = 180°

⇒ ∠STP + 32° = 180°

⇒ ∠STP = 180° – 32° = 148°

**Question 55.**

**AB is the diameter of the circle with centre O. OD is parallel to BC and ∠ AOD = 60°. Calculate the numerical values of: [1987]**

**(i) ∠ ABD**

**(ii) ∠ DBC**

**(iii) ∠ ADC**

**Solution:**

Join BD,

Arc AD, subtends ∠ AOD at the centre and ∠ ABD at the remaining part of the circle

∠ ABD = ∠ AOD = x 60° = 30°

In ΔOBD,

OB = OD (Radii of the same circle)

∠ ODB = ∠ OBD = ∠ ABD = 30°

OD||BC (given)

∠ ODB = ∠ DBC (Alternate angles)

∠ DBC = ∠ ODB = 30° .

Again OD || BC

∠ AOD = ∠ OBC (Corresponding angles)

⇒ ∠ OBC = ∠ AOD = 60°

Now, in cyclic quad. ABCD,

∠ ADC+ ∠ ABC = 180°

⇒ ∠ ADC + 60° = 180°

⇒ ∠ ADC = 180° – 60° = 120°

**Question 56.**

**In the given figure, the centre O of the small circle lies on the circumference of the bigger circle. If ∠ APB = 75° and ∠ BCD = 40°. find:**

**(i) ∠AOB,**

**(ii) ∠ACB,**

**(iii) ∠ABD,**

**(iv) ∠ADB. [1984]**

**Solution:**

Join AB, AD.

(i) Arc AB of the smaller circle subtends ∠ AOB at the centre and ∠ APB at the remaining part of the circle.

∠ AOB = 2 ∠ APB = 2 x 75° = 150°

(ii) OACB is a cyclic quad.

∠AOB + ∠ACB = 180°

⇒ 150° + ∠ACB = 180°

⇒ ∠ACB = 180° – 150° = 30°

(in) Again, ABDC is a cyclic quad,

∠ ABD + ∠ ACD = 180°

⇒ ∠ABD + (30° + 40°) = 180° (∠ ACD = ∠ ACB + ∠ BCD)

⇒ ∠ ABD + 70° = 180°

⇒ ∠ ABD = 180° – 70° = 110°

(iv) ∠ ACB and ∠ADB are in the same segment

∠ ADB = ∠ ACB = 30°

**Question 57.**

**In the given figure, ∠BAD = 65°, ∠ABD = 70° and ∠BDC = 45°. Find :**

**(i) ∠BCD**

**(ii) ∠ACB**

**Hence, show that AC is a diameter.**

**Solution:**

In circle ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral AC andBD are joined.

∠BAD = 65°, ∠ABD = 70° and ∠BDC = 45°

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral

65° + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BCD = 180° – 65° = 115°

Arc AB subtends ∠ABD and ∠ACD in the same segment

∠ACD = ∠ABD = 70° (∠ABD = 70°)

∠ACB = ∠BCD – ∠ACD = 115° – 70° = 45°

But arc AB subtends ∠ADB and ∠ACD in the same segment

∠ADB = ∠ACB = 45°

∠ADC = ∠ADB + ∠BDC = 45° + 45° = 90°

Now in segment ADC,

∠ADC = 90°

Segment ADC is a semi-circle

Hence AC is the diameter of the circle.

Hence proved.

**Question 58.**

**In a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD, ∠A : ∠C = 3 : 1 and ∠B : ∠D = 1 : 5; find each angle of the quadrilateral.**

**Solution:**

In a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD,

∠A : ∠C = 3 : 1 and ∠B : ∠D = 1 : 5

Let ∠A = 3x, ∠C = x,

But ∠A + ∠C = 180° (Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral)

⇒ 3x + x = 180°

⇒ 4x = 180°

⇒ x = 45°

∠A = 3x = 3 x 45° = 135°

∠C = x = 45°

∠B = ∠D = 1 : 5

Similarly, Let ∠B = y and ∠D = 5y

But ∠B + ∠D = 180°

y + 5y = 180°

⇒ 6y = 180°

⇒ y = 30°

∠B = y = 30°

and ∠D = 5y = 5 x 30° = 150°

Hence ∠A = 135°, ∠B = 30°, ∠C = 45° and ∠D = 150°

Hence Proved.

**Question 59.**

**The given figure shows a circle with centre O and ∠ABP = 42°. Calculate the measure of:**

**(i) ∠PQB**

**(ii) ∠QPB + ∠PBQ**

**Solution:**

In the figure

∠ABP = 42°.

Join PO, QO

Arc PA subtends ∠POA at the centre and ∠PBA at the remaining part.

∠POA = 2 ∠PBA = 2 x 42° = 84°

But ∠AOP + ∠BOP = 180° (Linear pair)

⇒ ∠POA+ ∠POB = 180°

⇒ 84° + ∠POB = 180°

⇒ POB = 180° – 84° = 96°

Similarly, arc BP subtends ∠BOP on the centre and ∠PQB at the remaining part of the circle

∠PQB = ∠POB = x 96° = 48°

But in ΔPBQ,

∠QPB + ∠PBQ + ∠PQB = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

∠QPB + ∠PBQ + 48° =180°

⇒ ∠QPB + ∠PBQ = 180°

⇒ ∠QPB + ∠PBQ = 180° – 48° = 132

Hence (i) PQB = 48° and

(ii) ∠QPB + ∠PBQ = 132°

**Question 60.**

**In the given figure, M is the centre of the circle. Chords AB and CD are perpendicular to each other.**

**If ∠MAD = x and ∠BAC = y:**

**(i) express ∠AMD in terms of x.**

**(ii) express ∠ABD in terms of y.**

**(iii) prove that: x = y.**

**Solution:**

In the figure, M is the centre of the circle chords AB and CD are perpendicular to each other at L.

∠MAD = x and ∠BAC = y

(i) In ΔAMD,

AM = DM (Radii of the same circle)

∠MDA = ∠MAD (Angles opposite to equal sides) = x

But, in ΔAMD,

∠MAD + ∠MDA + ∠AMD = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)

⇒ x + x + ∠AMD = 180°

⇒ 2x + ∠AMD = 180°

⇒ ∠AMD = 180°

∠AMD = 180° – 2x

(ii) Arc AD subtends ∠AMD at the circle and ∠ABD at the remaining part of the circle

∠AMD = 2∠ABD

⇒ ∠ABD = ∠ABD = [180°- 2x] = 90° – x

AB ⊥s CD

∠ALC = 90°

In ΔALC,

∠LAC + ∠LCA = 90°

⇒ ∠BAC + ∠DAC = 90°

⇒ y = ∠DAC = 90°

⇒ ∠DAC = 90° – y

But ∠DAC ∠ABD (Angles in the same segment)

∠ABD = 90° – y

But ∠ABD = 90° – x, Proved

90°- x = 90°- y

⇒ ∠x = yHence proved.

**Question 61.**

**In a circle, with centre O, a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD is drawn with AB as a diameter of the circle and CD equal to radius of the circle. If AD and BC produced meet at point P; show that ∠APB = 60°.**

**Solution:**

Given : In circle with centre O,

ABCD is cyclic quadrilateral in which CD is equal radius of the circle and AB is diameter.

CD = AB

AD and BC are produced to meet at P.

To prove: ∠APB = 60°

Construction : Join DO, CO and PB

In ΔDOC,

DO = CO = DC (Radii of the circle)

ΔDOC is an equilateral triangle

∠DOC = 60° ….(i)

Now, arc DC subtends ∠DOC at the centre arc ∠DBC at the remaining part of the circle

∠DBC = ∠DOC = x 60° = 30° …(ii)

But ∠ADB = 90° (Angle in a semi-circle)

∠PDB = 90° (∠PDB x ∠ADB = 180°, Linear pair)

Now in ΔPDB,

∠PDB = 90° (Proved)

⇒ ∠DPB = ∠DBC = 90°

⇒ ∠DPB + 30° = 90°

⇒ ∠DPB = 90° – 30° = 60°

⇒ APB = 60°

Hence proved.
