INTRODUCTION
We have studied in detail about the properties of a triangle. We also know that the triangle is a figure obtained
by joining three non collinear points in pair. In this chapter we shall discuss about four non-collinear points such that no three of them are collinear.

We know that the figure obtained on joining three non-collinear points in pairs is a triangle. If we mark four
points and join them in some order, then there are three possibilities for the figure obtained:
(i) If all the points are collinear (in the same line), we obtain a line segment.

(ii) If three out of four points are collinear, we get a triangle.

(iii) If no three points out of four are collinear, we obtain a closed figure with four sides.

Each of the figure obtained by joining four points in order is called a quadrilateral. (quad means four and lateral for sides).

2. CONSTITUENTS OF A QUADRILATERAL
A quadrilateral has four sides, four angles and four vertices.

In quadrilateral ABCD, AB, BC, CD and DA are the four sides; A, B, C and D are the four vertices and A,
B, C and D are the four angles formed at the vertices.
If we join the opposite vertices A to C and B to D, then AC and BD are the two diagonals of the quadrilateral ABCD.

3. QUADRILATERALS IN PRACTICAL LIFE
We find so many objects around us which are of the shape of a quadrilateral the floor, walls, ceiling, windows
of our classroom, the blackboard, each face of the duster, each page of our mathematics book, the top of our
study table, etc. Some of these are given below.

6. ANGLE SUM PROPERTY OF A QUADRILATERAL

THEOREM-I : The sum of the four angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.
Given : A quadrilateral ABCD.
To Prove :A + B + C + D = 360°

Construction : Join AC. 2 1
Proof :

Hence, proved.

Ex.1 Three angles of a quadrilateral measure 56°, 100° and 88°. Find the measure of the fourth angle.

Sol. Let the measure of the fourth angle be x°.
56° + 100° + 88° + x° = 360°                       [Sum of all the angles of quadrileteral is 360°]
⇒ 244+x=360
⇒ x = 360 – 244 = 116
Hence, the measure of the fourth angle is 116°.

Ex.2 In figure, ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || CD. If D = 45° and C = 75°, find A and B.
Sol.
We have, AB || CD and AD is a transversal.
so, A + D = 180° [Interior angles on the same side of the transversal]

Ex. 3 In the given figure, sides AB and CD of the quadrilateral ABCD are produced. Find the value of x.

Sol.

Ex.4 In the given figure, ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AE and BE are the angle bisectors of A and B. Prove that C + D = 2AEB.

Sol. Given : ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AE and BE are the

Hence proved.

Ex.5 In figure, ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AB = AD and BC = CD . Prove that
(i) AC bisects
A and C

(ii) BE = DE.

Sol. Given : ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AB = AD and BC = CD
To Prove :

(i) AC bisects A and C

(ii) BE = DE.
Proof :

Hence proved

Ex.6 In a quadrilateral ABCD, AO and BO are the bisectors of A and B respectively. Prove that

Sol. Given : In a quadrilateal ABCD, AO and BO are the bisectors of A and B

Hence proved

Q respectively. Prove that

Sol. Given : bisectors of B and D of quadrilateral ABCD meet CD and AB produced at P and Q

To Prove :

Proof :

 STATEMENT REASON

[Sum of the angles of a quadrilateral equals is 360°]

Hence proved

Ex.8 In quadrilateral ABCD B = 90°, C – D = 60° and A – C – D = 10°. Find A, C and D.

Sol. A + B + C + D = 360° (Sum of the four angles of a quadrilateral is 360°)

Ex.9 In quadrilateral ABCD
A + C = 140°, A : C = 1 : 3 and B : D = 5 : 6. Find the A, B, C and D.

Sol.

Hence, A = 35°, B = 100°, C = 105° and D = 120°

Ex.10 In figure, ABCD is a parallelogram in which D = 72°. Find A, B and C.

Sol. We have D = 72°
But B = D [Opposite angles of the parallelogram]
B = 72°

Now, AB || CD and AD and BC are two transversals.
So, A + D = 180° [Interior angles on the same side of the transversal AD]

## FAQs on Chapter 8 - Quadrilaterals, Solved Examples, Class 9, Maths - Extra Documents & Tests for Class 9

 1. What are quadrilaterals?
Ans. Quadrilaterals are polygons that have four sides, four vertices, and four angles. They are two-dimensional shapes that can be convex or concave. Examples of quadrilaterals include squares, rectangles, parallelograms, rhombuses, kites, and trapezoids.
 2. What is the difference between convex and concave quadrilaterals?
Ans. Convex quadrilaterals have all their interior angles measuring less than 180 degrees and all their vertices pointing outwards. Concave quadrilaterals, on the other hand, have at least one interior angle greater than 180 degrees, and at least one vertex pointing inwards.
 3. How do you find the perimeter of a quadrilateral?
Ans. To find the perimeter of a quadrilateral, you need to add up the lengths of all four sides. For example, if a quadrilateral has sides measuring 5 cm, 7 cm, 9 cm, and 6 cm, then its perimeter would be 27 cm (i.e., 5 + 7 + 9 + 6).
 4. What is the sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral?
Ans. The sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral is always 360 degrees. This means that if you add up all the angles inside a quadrilateral, the total will always be 360 degrees.
 5. How do you determine if a quadrilateral is a parallelogram?
Ans. A quadrilateral is a parallelogram if it has two pairs of parallel sides. Additionally, if one angle of a parallelogram is a right angle, then all four angles are right angles. If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then it is also a parallelogram.
