Angles

Based on the measurement, angles have been classified into different groups.

1. Complementary Angles

  • Two angles taken together are said to be complementary if the sum of measurement of the angles equal to 90o
  • If ∠ A + ∠ B = 90o then ∠A is complementary of ∠B and vice versa.

2. Supplementary Angles

  • Two angles are supplementary if the sum of their measure is 180o
  • If ∠ A + ∠ B = 180o then ∠A is supplementary of ∠B and vice – versa.

Try yourself:Two angles whose sum is equal to 180° are called:

➢ Linear Pair

  • Two angles were drawn on the same point and have one arm common. The sum of these angles is 180o, then they are said to be linear pair of angles.

  • ∠AOP and ∠POB are linear pair of angles.

➢ Adjacent Angles

  • Two angles are adjacent if and only if they have one common arm between them.

  • In the above figure, ∠ABC and ∠BCD are adjacent angles, since they have BC as their common arm.

Properties of Lines

  • A line consists of infinite dots. A line is drawn by joining any two different points on a plane. Two different lines drawn can be either parallel or intersecting depending on their nature. 
  • If two lines intersect at a point, then they form two pairs of opposite angles (as shown in the figure), which are known as vertically opposite angles and have same measure. In the figure, ∠PRQ and ∠SRT are vertically opposite angles. 
  • Also, ∠QRS and ∠PRT are vertically opposite angles.

  • Also, ∠x + ∠y = 180o and are Linear pair angles.

➢ Perpendicular Lines

  • An angle that has a measure of 90o is a right angle. If two lines intersect at right angles, the lines are perpendicular.
    Example:

    L1 and L2 above are perpendicular and denoted by L1 ⊥ L2.

➢ Parallel Lines

  • Two lines drawn on a plane are said to be parallel if they do not intersect each other. In the figure below lines, L1 and L2 are parallel and denoted by L1 || L2

➢ Parallel lines and Transverse

  • If a common line intersects two parallel lines L1 and L2, then that common line is known as transverse.

  • Pair of corresponding angles = (∠1 & ∠5) and (∠4 & ∠ 6)
  • Pair of internal alternate angles = (∠2 & ∠5)
  • Pair of exterior alternate angles = (∠3 & ∠6)
  • Vertically opposite angles = ∠3 & ∠4
  • For parallel lines intersected by the transversal, the pair of corresponding angles, interior alternate angles and exterior alternate angles are equal.
  • ∠1 = ∠5, ∠2 = ∠5, ∠3 = ∠6 and ∠3 = ∠4

Try yourself:If AB || CD, EF ⊥ CD and ∠GED = 135° as per the figure given below. The value of ∠AGE is:
