Question 1: In the adjoining figure, find x + y + z + w

Solution: Since, the sum of the measures of interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.
Also, 115° + 70° + 60° = 245°
∴ 245° +∠ABC = 360°
⇒∠ABC = 360° – 245° = 115°

Now, x = ext. ∠BCD 
= 180° – ∠BCD
= 180° – 115° = 65°

Similarly, y = 180° – 70° = 110°
z = 180° – 60° = 120°
w = 180° – 115° = 65°
∴ x + y + z + w = 65° + 110° + 120° + 65°
= 360°


Question 2: In a quadrilateral ABCD, the angles A, B, C and D are in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3 : 4. Find the measure of each angle of the quadrilateral.
Solution: ∵∠A : ∠B : ∠C : ∠D = 1 : 2 : 3 : 4
∴ Let us suppose that 

A = 1x°, B = 2x° 

C = 3x°, –D = 4x°
Since, ∠A +∠B + ∠C +∠D = 360°
∴ x + 2x + 3x + 4x = 360°
⇒ 10x = 360°
⇒ x = 360/10 = 36°
∴ Angles are:
 ∠A = x° = 36° 

∠B = 2x° = 2 x 36° = 72° 
C = 3x° = 3 x 36° = 108° 
D = 4x° = 4 x 36° = 144° 

Thus, the measure of the angle of the quad. are 36°, 72°, 108° and 144°

Question 3: The interior angle of a regular is 108°. Find the number of sides of the polygon.
Solution: Let there are ‘n’ sides of the regular polygon. 

 Measure of each exterior angle =  (360/n)o
Since, the measure of each of the interior angle = 108° 
 Measure of each exterior angle = 180° – 108° = 72°
⇒ 360/n = 72   n = 360/72 = 5
Thus, the required number of sides of the regular polygon is 5.

ALTERNATE METHOD
Let there be ‘n’ sides of the regular polygon.
Since, the measure of each interior angle is  Extra Questions and Practice Exercise- Understanding Quadrilaterals Class 8 Notes | EduRev

⇒ (2n-4) x 90 = 108 x n

⇒ 180n - 360 = 108n

⇒ 180n - 108n = 360

⇒  72n = 360 ⇒ n= (360/72) = 5
Thus, there are 5 sides of the given regular polygon.

Question 4: Two regular polygons are such that the ratio of the measures their interior angles is 4 : 3 and the ratio between their number of sides is 2 : 1. Find the number of sides of each polygon.
Solution: Let 2n and n be the number of sides of the regular polygons.
∴  Their interior angles are

⇒  3(n-1) = 4(n-2)

⇒  3n -3 = 4n -8

⇒  3n - 4n = -8 +3

⇒  -n = -5 ⇒ n=5

⇒   2n = 2 x 5 = 10
Thus, the number of sides of the polygons are 10 and 5 respectively.

Question 5: The exterior angle of a regular polygon is one-fifth of its interior angle. How many sides has the polygon?
Solution: Let the number of sides be ‘n’.
∴ Exterior angle of polygon =  (360/n)o

And interior angle of the polygon = Extra Questions and Practice Exercise- Understanding Quadrilaterals Class 8 Notes | EduRev
since, Exterior angle = 1/5 (Interior angle)

⇒ 2n- 4 = 20 ⇒ 2n = 20 +4 = 24

⇒ n= 24/2 = 12

Thus, the polygon is having 12 sides.

Question 6: The measures of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are in the ratio 4 : 5. Find the measure of each of the angles of the parallelogram.
Solution: Let ABCD be a parallelogram such that ∠A and ∠B are 4x and 5x respectively.
Since, the adjacent angles are supplementary,

∴  ∠A+  ∠B = 1800

⇒  4x + 5x = 180o

⇒  9x+ = 1800   . ⇒   x = 180o/9 = 20o
∴ ∠A = 4x = 4 x 20° = 80° 

and ∠B = 5x = 5 x 20° = 100° 
We know that opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal. 
∴ ∠C = ∠A = 80º 

And  ∠D= ∠B = 100°
Thus,  ∠A = 80°, ∠B = 100°, ∠C = 80° and D = 100°

Question 7: In a quadrilateral ABCD, DO and CO are the bisectors of ∠D and ∠C respectively.

Solution: In ΔCOD, we have 

⇒ ∠COD + ∠1 + ∠2 = 180°
⇒ ∠COD = 180° – [–1 + –2]

⇒ But ∠A+ ∠B+∠C+∠D = 360o

 ⇒ ∠C+∠D = 360o - (∠A+∠B)
