Exercise 3.2

Question 1: Find x in the following figures:

(a) Here, 125o+m=180o   [Linear pair]

m=180o-125o = 55o
and 125o+n =180o           [Linear pair]
n =180o-125o = 55o
Exterior angle xo = Sum of opposite interior angles
xo = 55o+55o =110o

(b) Sum of angles of a pentagon = (n - 2)x180o
= (5 - 2)x180o
= 3x180o = 540o

By linear pairs of angles,

Adding eq. (i), (ii), (iii), (iv) and (v),

Question 2:
Find the measure of each exterior angle of a regular polygon of:
(a) 9 sides

(b) 15 sides

(i) Sum of angles of a regular polygon = (n-2)x180o
= (9-2)x180o = 7x180o =1260o

Each interior angle= Sum of interior angles / Number of sides =1260o/9 =140o

Each exterior angle = 180o-140o = 40o

(ii) Sum of exterior angles of a regular polygon = 360o
Each interior angle = Sum of interior angles/Number of sides = 360o/15 =24o

Question 3:
How many sides does a regular polygon have, if the measure of an exterior angle is 24o?

Let number of sides be n.

Hence, the regular polygon has 15 sides.

Question 4:
How many sides does a regular polygon have if each of its interior angles is 165?

Let number of sides be n.
Exterior angle = 180o-165o=15o
Sum of exterior angles of a regular polygon = 360o

Hence, the regular polygon has 24 sides.

Question 5:
(a) Is it possible to have a regular polygon with of each exterior angle as 22
o?
(b) Can it be an interior angle of a regular polygon? Why?

(a) No. (Since 22 is not a divisor of 360o )
(b) No, (Because each exterior angle is 180o - 22o =158o, which is not a divisor of 360o )

Question 6:
(a) What is the minimum interior angle possible for a regular polygon? Why?
(b) What is the maximum exterior angle possible for a regular polygon?

(a) The equilateral triangle being a regular polygon of 3 sides has the least measure of an interior angle of 60o .

Sum of all the angles of a triangle = 180o

x+x+x= 180

3x=1800

x=60o

(b) By (a), we can observe that the greatest exterior angle is 1800 - 600 =1200.
