A quadrilateral is a plane figure that has four sides or edges, so having four corners or vertices. Quadrilaterals will typically be of standard shapes with four sides like rectangle, square, trapezoid, and kite or irregular and uncharacterized

### Types of Quadrilaterals

There are many types of quadrilaterals. As the word ‘Quad’ means four, all these types of a quadrilateral have four sides and the sum of angles of these shapes is 360 degrees.

- Trapezium
- Parallelogram
- Squares
- Rectangle
- Rhombus
- Kite

Another way to classify the types of quadrilaterals are:

- Convex Quadrilaterals: Both the diagonals of a quadrilateral are completely contained within a figure.
- Concave Quadrilaterals: At least one of the diagonals lies partly are entirely outside of the figure.
- Intersecting Quadrilaterals: Intersecting quadrilaterals are not simple quadrilaterals in which the pair of non-adjacent sides intersect. This kind of quadrilaterals are known as self-intersecting or crossed quadrilaterals

**Quadrilateral Properties**

A quadrilateral is a 4-sided plane figure. Below are some important properties of quadrilaterals :

- Every quadrilateral has 4 vertices, 4 angles, and 4 sides
- The total of its interior angles = 360 degrees
- A quadrilateral with four equal sides and four right angles is a square
- A quadrilateral that has opposite sides equal and measure of every angle is 90 degrees is a rectangle
- Parallelogram, trapezium, rhombus, and kite are other examples of quadrilaterals

### Notes on Quadrilateral

A quadrilateral is a** trapezoid or a trapezium** if 2 of its sides parallel to each other.

A quadrilateral is a **parallelogram** if 2 pairs of sides parallel to each other.

**Squares and Rectangles** are special types of parallelograms. Below are some special properties.– All internal angles are of “right angle” (90 degrees).– Each figure contains 4 right angles.– Sides of a square are of the same length (all sides are congruent) – Opposite sides of a rectangle are same.– Opposite sides of a rectangle and square are parallel.

A quadrilateral is a **rhombus**, if All the sides are of equal length-Specified 2 pairs of sides are parallel to each other.

A **kite** is a special sort of quadrilateral, wherever 2 pairs of adjacent sides are equal to each other.

### Exercise – 27 A **Quadrilateral ICSE Class-6th Concise** Mathematics Selina Solutions

**Question -1.**

Two angles of a quadrilateral are 89° and 113°. If the other two angles are equal; find the equal angles.

**Answer-1**

Let the other angle = x°

According to given,

89° + 113° + x° + x° = 360°

2x° = 360° – 202°

2x° = 158°

x° = ^{158}⁄_{2} =79°

∴other two angles = 79° each

**Question- 2.**

Two angles of a quadrilateral are 68° and 76°. If the other two angles are in the ratio 5 : 7; find the measure of each of them.

**Answer-2**

Two angles are 68° and 76°

Let other two angles be 5x and 7x

∴ 68°+76°+5x + 7x = 360°

12x + 144° = 360°

12x = 360° – 144°

12x= 216°

x = 18°

angles are 5x and 7x

i.e. 5×18° and 7×18° i.e. 90° and 126°

**Question -3.**

(i) the value of x.

(ii) each angle of the quadrilateral.

**Answer-3**

**(i) the value of x.**

Angles of quadrilateral are,

(4x)°, 5(x+2)°, (7x-20)° and 6(x+3)°.

4x+5(x+2)+(7x-20)+6(x+3) = 360°

4x+5x+10+7x-20+6x+18 = 360° 22x+8 = 360°

22x = 360°-8°

22x = 352°

x = 16°

**(ii) each angle of the quadrilateral.**

Hence angles are,

(4x)° = (4×16)° = 64°,

5(x+2)° = 5(16+2)° = 90°,

(7x-20)° = (7×16-20)° = 92°

6(x+3)° = 6(16+3) = 114°

**Question- 4.**

(i) x

(ii) ∠B and ∠C

**Answer-4**

**(i) x**

∵ ∠A = 90° (Given)

∠B = (2x+4°)

∠C = (3x-5°)

∠D = (8x – 15°)

∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

90° + (2x + 4°) + (3x – 5°) + (8x – 15°) = 360°

90° + 2x + 4° + 3x – 5° + 8x – 15° = 360°

⇒ 74° + 13x = 360°

⇒13x = 360° – 74°

⇒ 13x = 286°

⇒ x = 22°

**(ii) ∠B and ∠C**

∵ ∠B = 2x + 4 = 2. x 22° + 4 – 48°

∠C = 3x – 5 = 3×22° -5 = 61°

Hence (i) 22° (ii) ∠B = 48°, ∠C = 61°

**Question -5.**

(i) Calculate each angle of the quadrilateral.

(ii) Assign a special name to quadrilateral ABCD.

**Answer-5**

**(i) Calculate each angle of the quadrilateral.**

∵∠A : ∠D = 1:2

Let ∠A = x and ∠B = 2x

∵∠C : ∠B = 4 : 5 Let ∠C = 4y and ∠B = 5y

∵AB || DC

∠A + ∠D = 180° x + 2x = 180°

3x = 180° x = 60°

∴A = 60°

∠D = 2x = 2 x 60 = 120° Again ∠B + ∠C = 180°

5y + 4y= 180°

9y = 180°

y = 20°

∴∠B = 5y- = 5 x 20 = 100°

∠C = 4y = 4 x 20 = 80°

Hence ∠A = 60° ; ∠B = 100° ; ∠C = 80° and ∠D = 120°

**(ii) Assign a special name to quadrilateral ABCD.**

Trapezium

**Question- 6.**

(i) x,

(ii) ∠ABC,

(iii) ∠ACD.

**Answer-6**

**(i) In Quadrilateral ABCD,**

x + 4x + 3x + 4x + 48° = 360°

12x = 360° – 48°

12x =312

**(ii) ∠ABC = 4x**

4 x 26 = 104°

**(iii) ∠ACD = 180°-4x-48°**

= 180°-4×26°-48°

= 180°-104°-48°

= 180°-152° = 28°

**Question- 7.**

Given : In quadrilateral ABCD ; ∠C = 64°, ∠D = ∠C – 8° ;

∠A = 5(a+2)° and ∠B = 2(2a+7)°.

Calculate ∠A.

**Answer-7**

∵∠C = 64° (Given)

∴∠D = ∠C- 8°

= 64°- 8°

= 56°

∠A = 5 (a + 2)°

∠B = 2(2a + 7)°

Now ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

5(a + 2)° + 2(2a + 7)° + 64°+ 56° = 360°

5a + 10 + 4a + 14° + 64° + 56° = 360°

9a + 144° = 360°

9a = 360°-144°

9a = 216°

a = 24°

∴∠A = 5(a + 2)

= 5(24 + 2)

= 130°

**Question -8.**

In the given figure :

∠b = 2a + 15

and ∠c = 3a+5; find the values of b and c.

**Answer-8**

∠b = 2a + 15

& ∠c = 3a + 5

∵Sum of angles of quadrilateral = 360°

70° + a + 2a + 15 + 3a + 5 – 360°

6a+90° = 360°

6a = 270°

a = 45°

∴ b = 2a+15= 2×45+15 = 105°

c = 3a+5 = 3×45+5 = 140°

105° and 140

**Question- 9.**

Three angles of a quadrilateral are equal. If the fourth angle is 69°; find the measure of equal angles.

**Answer-9**

Let each equal angle be

x° x + x + x + 69° = 360°

3x = 360°-69 3x =291 x = 97°

Each equal angle = 97°

**Question -10.**

In quadrilateral PQRS, ∠P : ∠Q : ∠R : ∠S = 3 : 4 : 6 : 7.

Calculate each angle of the quadrilateral and then prove that PQ and SR are parallel to each other. Is PS also parallel to QR ?

**Answer-10**

∵∠P : ∠Q : ∠R : ∠S = 3 : 4 : 6 : 7

Let ∠P = 3x

∠Q = 4x

∠R = 6x & ∠S = 7x

∴∠P+∠Q+∠R+∠S = 360°

3x + 4x + 6x + lx = 360°

20x = 360°

x = 18°

∴ ∠P = 3x = 3×18 = 54°

∠Q = 4x = 4×18 = 72°

∠R = 6x = 6×18 = 108°

∠S = 7x = 7×18 = 126°

∠Q + ∠R = 72°+108° = 180° or ∠P +∠S = 54°+126° = 180°

Hence PQ || RS

As ∠P + ∠Q = 72° +54° = 126°

Which is * 180°.

∴PS and QR are not parallel.

**Question -11.**

Use the information given in the following figure to find the value of x.

**Answer-11**

Take A, B, C, D as the vertices of quadrilateral and BA is produced to E

Since ∠EAD = 70°

∴∠DAB = 180° – 70° = 110° [∵ EAB is a straight line and AD stands on it]

∴∠EAD + ∠DAB = 180°

∴110° + 80° + 56° + 3x = 360°

[∵ sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral = 360°]

∴3x = 360° – 110° – 80° – 56° + 6°

3x = 360° – 240° = 120°

∴x = 40°

**Question -12.**

The following figure shows a quadrilateral in which sides AB and DC are parallel.

If ∠A : ∠D = 4 : 5, ∠B = (3x – 15)° and ∠C = (4x + 20)°, find each angle of the quadrilateral ABCD.

**Answer-12**

Let ∠A = 4x

∠D = 5x

Since ∠A + ∠D = 180° [∵ AB || DC]

∴4x + 5x = 180°

⇒ 9x = 180° ⇒x = 20°

∴∠A = 4 (20) = 80°, ∠D = 5 (20) = 100° Again ∠B + ∠C = 180° [ ∵ AB || DC]

∴ 3x – 15° + 4x + 20° = 180°

7x = 180°-5°

⇒ 7x = 175° ⇒ x = 25°

∴∠B = 75°-15° = 60° and ∠C = 4(25) + 20 = 100° + 20° = 120°

**Question -1.**

In a trapezium ABCD, side AB is parallel to side DC. If ∠A = 78° and ∠C = 120°, find angles B and D.

**Answer-1**

∵ AB || DC and BC is transversal

∴∠B and ∠C, ∠A and ∠D are Co-interior angles with their sum = 180°

i.e. ∠B + ∠C = 180°

⇒ ∠B + 120° = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180° – 120°

⇒ ∠B = 60°

Also ∠A + ∠D = 180°

⇒ 78° + ∠D = 180°

⇒ ∠D = 180° – 78°

∠D = 102°

**Question -2.**

In a trapezium ABCD, side AB is parallel to side DC. If ∠A = x° and ∠D = (3x – 20)°; find the value of x.

**Answer-2**

∵AB || DC and BC is transversal

∴∠A and ∠B are Co-interior angles with their sum = 180°

i.e. ∠A + ∠D = 180°

⇒ x° + (3x – 20)° = 180°

⇒ x° + 3x° – 20° = 180°

⇒ 4x° = 180° + 20°

x° = ^{200}⁄_{4} = 50°

∴Value of x = 50°

**Question -3.**

The angles A, B, C and D of a trapezium ABCD are in the ratio 3 : 4 : 5 : 6.

Le. ∠A : ∠B : ∠C : ∠D = 3:4: 5 : 6. Find all the angles of the trapezium. Also, name the two sides of this trapezium which are parallel to each other. Give reason for your answer

**Answer-3**

As the trapezium ABCD is a quadrilateral,

∴ Sum of its interior angles = 360°

⇒ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

⇒ 3x + 4x + 5x + 6x = 360°

⇒ 18x = 360°

⇒ x = ** ^{360}⁄_{18 }**=20°

∴ ∠A = 3x = 3 × 20° = 60°

and ∠B = 4x = 4 × 20° = 80°

and ∠C = 5x = 5 × 20° = 100°

and ∠D = 6x = 6 × 20° = 120°

AB is parallel to DC.

∵ ∠A + ∠D = 180°

∠A and ∠D are co-interior angles whose sum = 180°

**Question -4.**

In an isosceles trapezium one pair of opposite sides are ….. to each Other and the other pair of opposite sides are ….. to each other.

**Answer-4**

In an isosceles trapezium one pair of opposite sides are **parallel** to each other and the other pair of opposite sides are **equal** to each other.

**Question -5.**

Two diagonals of an isosceles trapezium are x cm and (3x – 8) cm. Find the value of x.

**Answer-5**

∵The diagonals of an isosceles trapezium are of equal length

∴3x – 8 = x

⇒ 3x – x = 8 cm

⇒ 2x = 8 cm

⇒ x = 4 cm

∴ The value of x is 4 cm

**Question- 6.**

Angle A of an isosceles trapezium is 115° ; find the angles B, C and D.

**Answer-6**

Since, the base angles of an isosceles trapezium are equal,

∴ ∠A = ∠B = 115°

Also, ∠A and ∠D are co-interior angles and their sum = 180°

∴ ∠A + ∠D = 180°

⇒115° + ∠D = 180°

⇒ ∠D = 180° – 115°

⇒ ∠D = 650°

Also, ∠D = ∠C = 65°

∴ ∠B = 115°, ∠C = 65°, ∠D = 65°

**Question -7.**

Two opposite angles of a parallelogram are 100° each. Find each of the other two opposite angles.

**Answer-7**

**Given :** Two opposite angles of a parallelogram are 100° each

∵ Adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary,

∴∠A + ∠B = 180°

⇒ 100° + ∠B = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180° – 100°

⇒ ∠B = 80°

Also, opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal

∴∠D = ∠B = 80°

∴∠B = ∠D = 80°

**Question- 8.**

Two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are 70° and 110° respectively. Find the other two angles of it.

**Answer-8**

Given two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are 70° and 110° respectively.

**Question -9.**

The angles A, B, C and D of a quadrilateral are in the ratio 2:3: 2 : 3. Show this quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

**Answer-9**

Given, Angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio 2: 3: 2: 3

i.e. A : B : C : D are in the ratio

2: 3: 2: 3

**To prove: **Quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram

**Proof: **Let us take ∠A = 2x, ∠B = 3x, ∠C = 2x and ∠D = 3x

We know, that the sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

⇒ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

⇒ 2x + 3x + 2x + 3x = 360°

⇒ 10x = 360°

⇒ x = ** ^{360}⁄_{10}** =36∘

∴ ∠A = ∠C = 2x = 2 × 360° = 72°

∠B = ∠D = 3x = 3 × 36° = 360°

Now, A quadrilateral ABCD is considered as a parallelogram.

(i) When opposite angles are equal,

i.e. ∠A = ∠C = 72° and ∠B = ∠D = 108°

(ii) When adjacent angles are supplementary

i.e. ∠A + ∠B = 180°

and ∠C = ∠D = 180°

⇒ 72° + 108° and 72° + 108° = 180°

⇒ 180° = 180° and 180° = 180°

Since quadrilateral ABCD fulfills the conditions.

∴ Quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram.

then OA = OC = ** ^{1}⁄_{2}** AC

and OB = OD = ** ^{1}⁄_{2}** BD

∴ OA = ** ^{1}⁄_{2}**× AC ⇒ AC = 2 × OA

⇒ AC = 2 × 6 cm = 12 cm,

and OB = ** ^{1}⁄_{2}**×BD ⇒ BD = 2 × OB

⇒ BD = 2 × 7.5 cm ⇒ BD = 15 cm

In parallelogram ABCD, ∠A = 90°

(i) What is the measure of angle B.

(ii) Write the special name of the parallelogram.

**Answer-12**

In parallelogram ABCD, ∠A = 90°

(i) ∵ In a parallelogram, adjacent angles are supplementary

∴ ∠A + ∠B = 180°

⇒ 90° + ∠B = 180°

⇒ ∠B = 180° – 90°

⇒ ∠B = 90°

(ii) The name of the given parallelogram is a rectangle.

**Question- 13.**

**Question- 14.**

Each angle of a quadrilateral is x + 5°. Find :

(i) the value of x

(ii) each angle of the quadrilateral.

Give the special name of the quadrilateral taken.

**Answer-14**

(i) We have,

∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

∵ We know that the sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°

∴ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

⇒ x + 5° + x + 5° + x + 5° + x + 5° = 360°

⇒ 4x + 20° = 360°

⇒ 4x = 360° – 20°

⇒ x=^{340}⁄_{4 }=85°

(ii) Each angle of the quadrilateral ABCD = x + 5°

= 85° + 5°

= 90°

The name of the given quadrilateral is a rectangle.

**Question- 15.**

If three angles of a quadrilateral are 90° each, show that the given quadrilateral is a rectangle.

**Answer-15**

The given quadrilateral ABCD will be a rectangle, if its each angle is 90°

Since, the sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.

∴∠A +∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°

⇒ 90° + 90° + 90° + ∠D = 360°

⇒ 270° + ∠D = 360°

⇒ ∠D = 360° – 270°

⇒ ∠D = 90°

Since, each angle of the quadrilateral is 90°. ∴The given quadrilateral is a rectangle.
