(ii) Yes, two right angles can be supplementary
Because, 90o + 90o = 180o
(iii) No, two acute angle cannot be supplementary
Because, the sum of two angles is less than 90o so their sum will also be less than 90o

∠BOC and ∠DOB
∠BOD and ∠DOA
∠AOC and ∠DOA
10. In Fig. 18, A, B, C are collinear points and ∠DBA = ∠EBA.
(i) Name two linear pairs.
(ii) Name two pairs of supplementary angles.
Solution:
(i) Two adjacent angles are said to be form a linear pair of angles, if their non-common arms are two opposite rays.
Therefore linear pairs are
∠ABD and ∠DBC
∠ABE and ∠EBC
(ii) We know that every linear pair forms supplementary angles, these angles are
∠ABD and ∠DBC
∠ABE and ∠EBC
11. If two supplementary angles have equal measure, what is the measure of each angle?
Solution:
Let p and q be the two supplementary angles that are equal
The two angles are said to be supplementary angles if the sum of those angles is 180o
∠p = ∠q
So,
∠p + ∠q = 180o
∠p + ∠p = 180o
2∠p = 180o
∠p = 180o/2
∠p = 90o
Therefore, ∠p = ∠q = 90o
12. If the complement of an angle is 28o, then find the supplement of the angle.
Solution:
Given complement of an angle is 28o
Here, let x be the complement of the given angle 28o
Therefore, ∠x + 28o = 90o
∠x = 90o – 28o
= 62o
So, the supplement of the angle = 180o – 62o
= 118o
13. In Fig. 19, name each linear pair and each pair of vertically opposite angles:
RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 5

∠3 and ∠4
∠1 and ∠4
∠5 and ∠6
∠6 and ∠7
∠7 and ∠8
∠8 and ∠5
∠9 and ∠10
∠10 and ∠11
∠11 and ∠12
∠12 and ∠9
The two angles are said to be vertically opposite angles if the two intersecting lines have no common arms.

∠1 and ∠3
∠4 and ∠2
∠5 and ∠7
∠6 and ∠8
∠9 and ∠11
∠10 and ∠12
14. In Fig. 20, OE is the bisector of ∠BOD. If ∠1 = 70o, find the magnitude of ∠2, ∠3 and ∠4.

RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 6
Solution:
Given, ∠1 = 70o
∠3 = 2(∠1)
= 2(70o)
∠3 = 140o
∠3 = ∠4
As, OE is the angle bisector,
∠DOB = 2(∠1)
= 2(70o)
= 140o
∠DOB + ∠AOC + ∠COB +∠DOB = 360o [sum of the angle of circle = 360o]
140o + 140o + 2(∠COB) = 360o
Since, ∠COB = ∠AOD
2(∠COB) = 360o – 280o
2(∠COB) = 80o
∠COB = 80o/2
∠COB = 40o
Therefore, ∠COB = ∠AOB = 40o
The angles are, ∠1 = 70o, ∠2 = 40o, ∠3 = 140o and ∠4 = 40o
15. One of the angles forming a linear pair is a right angle. What can you say about its other angle?
Solution:
Given one of the angle of a linear pair is the right angle that is 90o
We know that linear pair angle is 180o
Therefore, the other angle is
180o – 90o = 90o
16. One of the angles forming a linear pair is an obtuse angle. What kind of angle is the other?
Solution:
Given one of the angles of a linear pair is obtuse, then the other angle should be acute, because only then their sum will be 180o.
17. One of the angles forming a linear pair is an acute angle. What kind of angle is the other?
Solution:
Given one of the Angles of a linear pair is acute, then the other angle should be obtuse, only then their sum will be 180o.
18. Can two acute angles form a linear pair?
Solution:
No, two acute angles cannot form a linear pair because their sum is always less than 180o.
19. If the supplement of an angle is 65o, then find its complement.
Solution:
Let x be the required angle
So, x + 65o = 180o
x = 180o – 65o
x = 115o
The two angles are said to be complementary angles if the sum of those angles is 90o here it is more than 90o therefore the complement of the angle cannot be determined.
20. Find the value of x in each of the following figures.
RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 7

(i)  We know that ∠BOA + ∠BOC = 180o
[Linear pair: The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o]
60o + xo = 180o
xo = 180o – 60o
xo = 120o
(ii) We know that ∠POQ + ∠QOR = 180o
[Linear pair: The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o]
3xo + 2xo = 180o
5xo = 180o
xo = 180o/5
xo = 36o
(iii) We know that ∠LOP + ∠PON + ∠NOM = 180o
[Linear pair: The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o]
Since, 35o + xo + 60o = 180o
xo = 180o – 35o – 60o
xo = 180o – 95o
xo = 85o
(iv) We know that ∠DOC + ∠DOE + ∠EOA + ∠AOB+ ∠BOC = 360o
83o + 92o + 47o + 75o + xo = 360o
xo + 297o = 360o
xo = 360o – 297o
xo = 63o
(v) We know that ∠ROS + ∠ROQ + ∠QOP + ∠POS = 360o
3xo + 2xo + xo + 2xo = 360o
8xo = 360o
xo = 360o/8
xo = 45o
(vi)  Linear pair: The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o
Therefore 3xo = 105o

xo = 45o
21. In Fig. 22, it being given that ∠1 = 65o, find all other angles.

RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 8
Solution:
Given from the figure 22, ∠1 = ∠3 are the vertically opposite angles
Therefore, ∠3 = 65o
Here, ∠1 + ∠2 = 180° are the linear pair [The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o]
Therefore, ∠2 = 180o – 65o
= 115o
∠2 = ∠4 are the vertically opposite angles [from the figure]
Therefore, ∠2 = ∠4 = 115o
And ∠3 = 65o
22. In Fig. 23, OA and OB are opposite rays:
(i) If x = 25o, what is the value of y?

Solution:
(i) ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180o [The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o]
2y + 50 + 3x = 180o
3x + 2y = 175o
Given If x = 25o, then
3(25o) + 2y = 175o
75o + 2y = 175o
2y = 175o – 75o
2y = 100o
y = 100o/2
y = 50o
(ii) ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180o [The two adjacent angles are said to form a linear pair of angles if their non–common arms are two opposite rays and sum of the angle is 180o]
2y + 5 + 3x = 180o
3x + 2y = 175o
Given If y = 35o, then
3x + 2(35o) = 175o
3x + 70o = 175o
3x = 1750 – 70o
3x = 105o
x = 105o/3
x = 35o

3xo = 180o – 30o
3xo = 150o
xo = 150o/3
xo = 50o
Also given that
∠BOC = (x + 20)o
= (50 + 20)o
= 70o
∠COD = 50o
∠AOD = (x + 10)o
= (50 + 10)o

x = 110o/2
x = 55o
29. In Fig. 29, POS is a line, find x.
Solution:
From the figure we can write as angles of a straight line,
∠QOP + ∠QOR + ∠ROS = 180o
60o + 4x + 40o = 180o
On rearranging we get, 100o + 4x = 180o
4x = 180o – 100o
4x = 80o
x = 80o/4
x = 20o

RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 12
Solution:
Given that, ∠x = 45o
From the figure we can write as
∠x = ∠z = 45o
Also from the figure, we have
∠y = ∠u
From the property of linear pair we can write as
∠x + ∠y + ∠z + ∠u = 360o
45o + 45o + ∠y + ∠u = 360o
90o + ∠y + ∠u = 360o
∠y + ∠u = 360o – 90o
∠y + ∠u = 270o
∠y + ∠z = 270o
2∠z = 270o
∠z = 135o
Therefore, ∠y = ∠u = 135o
So, ∠x = 45o, ∠y = 135o, ∠z = 45o and ∠u = 135o
31. In Fig. 31, three coplanar lines intersect at a point O, forming angles as shown in the figure. Find the values of x, y, z and u
Solution:
Given that, ∠x + ∠y + ∠z+ ∠u + 50o + 90o = 360o
Linear pair, ∠x + 50o + 90o = 180o
∠x + 140o = 180o
On rearranging we get
∠x = 180o – 140o
∠x = 40o
From the figure we can write as
∠x = ∠u = 40o are vertically opposite angles
∠z = 90o is a vertically opposite angle
∠y = 50o is a vertically opposite angle
Therefore, ∠x = 40o, ∠y = 50o, ∠z = 90o and ∠u = 40o
32. In Fig. 32, find the values of x, y and z.

RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 13
Solution:
∠y = 25o vertically opposite angle
From the figure we can write as
∠x = ∠y are vertically opposite angles
∠x + ∠y + ∠z + 25o = 360o
∠x + ∠z + 25o + 25o = 360o
On rearranging we get,
∠x + ∠z + 50o = 360o
∠x + ∠z = 360o – 50o [∠x = ∠z]
2∠x = 310o
∠x = 155o
And, ∠x = ∠z = 155o
Therefore, ∠x = 155o, ∠y = 25o and ∠z = 155o

RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 15

Solution:
A pair of angles in which one arm of both the angles is on the same side of the transversal and their other arms are directed in the same sense is called a pair of corresponding angles.
Therefore corresponding angles are
∠ALM = ∠CMQ = 60o [given]
Vertically opposite angles are
∠LMD = ∠CMQ = 60[given]
Vertically opposite angles are
∠ALM = ∠PLB = 60o
Here, ∠CMQ + ∠QMD = 180o are the linear pair
On rearranging we get
= ∠QMD = 180o – 60o
= 120o
Corresponding angles are
∠QMD = ∠MLB = 120o
Vertically opposite angles
∠QMD = ∠CML = 120o
Vertically opposite angles
∠MLB = ∠ALP = 120o
3. In Fig. 60, AB and CD are parallel lines intersected by a transversal by a transversal PQ at L and M respectively. If ∠LMD = 35o find ∠ALM and ∠PLA.
Solution:
Given that, ∠LMD = 35o
From the figure we can write
∠LMD and ∠LMC is a linear pair
∠LMD + ∠LMC = 180[sum of angles in linear pair = 180o]
On rearranging, we get
= ∠LMC = 180o – 35o
= 145o
So, ∠LMC = ∠PLA = 145o
And, ∠LMC = ∠MLB = 145o
∠MLB and ∠ALM is a linear pair
∠MLB + ∠ALM = 180o [sum of angles in linear pair = 180o]
= ∠ALM = 180o – 145o
= ∠ALM = 350
Therefore, ∠ALM = 35o, ∠PLA = 145o.

Solution:
Given that, l ∥ m
From the figure the angle alternate to ∠13 is ∠7
From the figure the angle corresponding to ∠15 is ∠7 [A pair of angles in which one arm of both the angles is on the same side of the transversal and their other arms are directed in the same sense is called a pair of corresponding angles.]
Again from the figure angle alternate to ∠15 is ∠5
5. In Fig. 62, line l ∥ m and n is transversal. If ∠1 = 40°, find all the angles and check that all corresponding angles and alternate angles are equal.

Solution:
Given that, ∠1 = 40o
∠1 and ∠2 is a linear pair [from the figure]
∠1 + ∠2 = 180o
∠2 = 180o – 40o
∠2 = 140o
Again from the figure we can say that
∠2 and ∠6 is a corresponding angle pair
So, ∠6 = 140o
∠6 and ∠5 is a linear pair [from the figure]
∠6 + ∠5 = 180o
∠5 = 180o – 140o
∠5 = 40o
From the figure we can write as
∠3 and ∠5 are alternative interior angles
So, ∠5 = ∠3 = 40o
∠3 and ∠4 is a linear pair
∠3 + ∠4 = 180o
∠4 = 180o – 40o
∠4 = 140o
Now, ∠4 and ∠6 are a pair interior angles
So, ∠4 = ∠6 = 140o
∠3 and ∠7 are pair of corresponding angles
So, ∠3 = ∠7 = 40o
Therefore, ∠7 = 40o
∠4 and ∠8 are a pair corresponding angles
So, ∠4 = ∠8 = 140o
Therefore, ∠8 = 140o
Therefore, ∠1 = 40o, ∠2 = 140o, ∠3 = 40o, ∠4 = 140o, ∠5 = 40o, ∠6 = 140o, ∠7 = 40o and ∠8 = 140o

Given ∠1 and ∠2 are in the ratio 3: 2
Let us take the angles as 3x, 2x
∠1 and ∠2 are linear pair [from the figure]
3x + 2x = 180o
5x = 180o
x = 180o/5
x = 36o
Therefore, ∠1 = 3x = 3(36) = 108o
∠2 = 2x = 2(36) = 72o
∠1 and ∠5 are corresponding angles
Therefore ∠1 = ∠5
Hence, ∠5 = 108o
∠2 and ∠6 are corresponding angles
So ∠2 = ∠6
Therefore, ∠6 = 72o
∠4 and ∠6 are alternate pair of angles
∠4 = ∠6 = 72o
Therefore, ∠4 = 72o
∠3 and ∠5 are alternate pair of angles
∠3 = ∠5 = 108o
Therefore, ∠5 = 108o
∠2 and ∠8 are alternate exterior of angles
∠2 = ∠8 = 72o
Therefore, ∠8 = 72o
∠1 and ∠7 are alternate exterior of angles
∠1 = ∠7 = 108o
Therefore, ∠7 = 108o
Hence, ∠1 = 108o, ∠2 = 72o, ∠3 = 108o, ∠4 = 72o, ∠5 = 108o, ∠6 = 72o, ∠7 = 108o, ∠8 = 72o

From the figure,
∠4 and ∠1 are corresponding angles
∠4 = ∠1
Therefore, ∠1 = 120o
∠1 and ∠2 are corresponding angles
∠2 = ∠1
Therefore, ∠2 = 120o
∠2 and ∠3 are vertically opposite angles
∠2 = ∠3

RD Sharma Solutions for class 7 Maths Chapter 14 Lines and Angles Image 23
Solution:
From the figure ∠2 = ∠3 are vertically opposite angels,
∠2 = ∠3 = 65o
∠8 = ∠6 = 65o
Therefore, ∠3 = ∠6
Hence, l ∥ m
18. In Fig. 75, Show that AB ∥ EF.
Solution:
We know that,
∠ACD = ∠ACE + ∠ECD
∠ACD = 35o + 22o
∠ACD = 57o = ∠BAC
Thus, lines BA and CD are intersected by the line AC such that, ∠ACD = ∠BAC
So, the alternate angles are equal
Therefore, AB ∥ CD ……1
Now,
∠ECD + ∠CEF = 35o + 45o = 180o
This, shows that sum of the angles of the interior angles on the same side of the transversal CE is 180o
So, they are supplementary angles
