## Problem Set 5 Geometry 9th Std Maths Part 2 Answers Chapter 5 Quadrilaterals

Question 1.
Choose the correct alternative answer and fill in the blanks.

i. If all pairs of adjacent sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then it is called ____.
(A) rectangle
(B) parallelogram
(C) trapezium
(D) rhombus
(D) rhombus

ii. If the diagonal of a square is 22√2 cm, then the perimeter of square is ____.
(A) 24 cm
(B) 24√2 cm
(C) 48 cm
(D) 48√2 cm
In ∆ABC,
AC2 = AB2 + BC2 ∴ (122 √2 )2 = AB2 + AB2
∴ $$A B^{2}=\frac{12^{2} \times 2}{2}=12^{2}$$
∴ AB = 12 cm
∴ Perimeter of □ABCD = 4 x 12 = 48 cm
(C) 48 cm

iii. If opposite angles of a rhombus are (2x)° and (3x – 40)°, then the value of x is ____.
(A) 100°
(B) 80°
(C) 160°
(D) 40°
2x = 3x – 40 … [Pythagoras theorem]
∴ x = 40°
(D) 40°

Question 2.
Adjacent sides of a rectangle are 7 cm and 24 cm. Find the length of its diagonal.
Solution: Let □ABCD be the rectangle.
AB = 7 cm, BC = 24 cm
In ∆ABC, ∠B = 90° [Angle of a rectangle]
AC2 = AB2 + BC2 [Pythagoras theorem]
= 72 + 242
= 49 + 576
= 625
AC = √625 [Taking square root of both sides]
= 25 cm
∴ The length of the diagonal of the rectangle is 25 cm.

Question 3.
If diagonal of a square is 13 cm, then find its side.
Solution: Let □PQRS be the square of side x cm.
∴ PQ = QR = x cm …..(i) [Sides of a square]
∴ In ∆PQR, ∠Q = 90° [Angle of a square]
∴ PR2 = PQ2 + QR2 [Pythagoras theorem]
∴ 13 = x + x [From (i)]
∴ 169 = 2x2 The length of the side of the square is 6.5√2 cm.

Question 4.
Ratio of two adjacent sides of a parallelogram is 3 : 4, and its perimeter is 112 cm. Find the length of its each side.
Solution: Let □STUV be the parallelogram.
Ratio of two adjacent sides of a parallelogram is 3 : 4.
Let the common multiple be x.
ST = 3x cm and TU = 4x cm
∴ ST = UV = 3x cm
TU = SV = 4x cm …..(i) [Opposite sides of a parallelogram]
Perimeter of □STUV = 112 [Given]
∴ ST + TU + UV + SV = 112
∴ 3x + 4x + 3x + 4x = 112 [From (i)]
∴ 14x = 112
∴ x = $$\frac { 112 }{ 14 }$$
∴ x = 8
∴ ST = UV = 3x = 3 x 8 = 24 cm
∴ TU = SV = 4x = 4 x 8 = 32 cm [From (i)]
∴ The lengths of the sides of the parallelogram are 24 cm, 32 cm, 24 cm and 32 cm.

Question 5.
Diagonals PR and QS of a rhombus PQRS are 20 cm and 48 cm respectively. Find the length of side PQ.
Solution: □PQRS is a rhombus. [Given]
PR = 20 cm and QS = 48 cm [Given]
∴ PT = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ PR [Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other]
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x 20 = 10 cm
Also, QT = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ QS [Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other]
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x 48 = 24 cm

ii. In ∆PQT, ∠PTQ = 90° [Diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular to each other]
∴ PQ2 = PT2 + QT2 [Pythagoras- theorem]
= 102 + 242
= 100 + 576
∴ PQ2 = 676
∴ PQ = $$\sqrt {676 }$$ [Taking square root of both sides]
= 26 cm
∴ The length of side PQ is 26 cm.

Question 6.
Diagonals of a rectangle PQRS are intersecting in point M. If ∠QMR = 50°, then find the measure of ∠MPS.
Solution: □PQRS is a rectangle.
∴ PM = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ PR …(i)
MS = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ QS …(ii) [Diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other]
Also, PR = QS …..(iii) [Diagonals of a rectangle are congruent]
∴ PM = MS ….(iv) [From (i), (ii) and (iii)]
In ∆PMS,
PM = MS [From (iv)]
∴ ∠MSP = ∠MPS = x° …..(v) [Isosceles triangle theorem]
∠PMS = ∠QMR = 50° ……(vi) [Vertically opposite angles]
In ∆MPS,
∠PMS + ∠MPS + ∠MSP = 180° [Sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle is 180°]
∴ 50° +x + x = 180° [From (v) and (vi)]
∴ 50° + 2x= 180
∴ 2x= 180-50
∴ 2x= 130
∴ x = $$\frac { 130 }{ 2 }$$ = 65°
∴ ∠MPS = 65° [From (v)]
