5.1 INTRODUCTION
You already know how to identify different lines, line segments and angles in a given
shape. Can you identify the different line segments and angles formed in the following
figures? (Fig 5.1)
(i) (ii) (iii) (iv)
Fig 5.1
Can you also identify whether the angles made are acute or obtuse or right?
Recall that a line segment has two end points. If we extend the two end points in either
direction endlessly, we get a line. Thus, we can say that a line has no end points. On the other
hand, recall that a ray has one end point (namely its starting point). For example, look at the
figures given below:
Fig 5.2
Here, Fig 5.2 (i) shows a line segment, Fig 5.2 (ii) shows a line and Fig 5.2 (iii) is that
of a ray. A line segment PQ is generally denoted by the symbol
PQ

the symbol AB

Again recall that an angle is formed when lines or line segments meet. In Fig 5.1,
observe the corners. These corners are formed when two lines or line segments intersect
at a point. For example, look at the figures given below:
Fig 5.3
In Fig 5.3 (i) line segments AB and BC intersect at B to form angle ABC, and again
line segments BC and AC intersect at C to form angle ACB and so on. Whereas, in
Fig 5.3 (ii) lines PQ and RS intersect at O to form four angles POS,
SOQ, QOR and ROP. An angle ABC is represented by the symbol
?ABC. Thus, in Fig 5.3 (i), the three angles formed are ?ABC, ?BCA
and ?BAC, and in Fig 5.3 (ii), the four angles formed are ?POS, ?SOQ,
?QOR and ?POR. Y ou have already studied how to classify the angles
as acute, obtuse or right angle.
Note: While referring to the measure of an angle ABC, we shall write m?ABC as simply
?ABC. The context will make it clear , whether we are referring to the angle or its measure.

Whenever two angles are complementary, each angle is said to be the complement
of the other angle. In the above diagram (Fig 5.4), the ‘30° angle’ is the complement of the
‘60° angle’ and vice versa.

Look at the following figures:
Fig 5.8
At both the  vertices A and B, we find, a pair of angles are placed next to each other.
These angles are such that:
(i) they have a common vertex;
(ii) they have a common arm; and
(iii) the non-common arms are on either side of the common arm.
Such pairs of angles are called adjacent angles. Adjacent angles have a common
vertex and a common arm but no common interior points.
1. Are the angles marked 1 and 2 adjacent? (Fig 5.9). If they are not adjacent,
say, ‘why’.

When you open a book it looks like the above
figure. In A and B, we find a pair of angles,

being formed, lying next to one another.
