## Karnataka Board Class 9 Maths Chapter 6 Constructions Ex 6.1

Question 1.
Construct an angle of 90° at the initial point of a given ray and justify the construction.
Solution:
Data: Constructing an angle of 90° at the initial point of a given ray. Steps of Construction:

1. Draw AB straight line.
2. Taking A as centre and any radius draw an arc and intersect AB at C.
3. Taking C as centre with the same radius draw an arc which intersects at D.
4. With the same radius taking D as centre, it intersects at E.
5. With centres E and D with the same radius draw two arcs which meet both at F.
6. If AF is joined, AB straight line is the line in point A with 90°, i.e., AF.
In the above construction ∠DAB = 60° and ∠DAE = 60°.
Angular bisector of ∠DAE is AF.
∴ ∠DAF = ∠EAF = 30°
∴∠BAF = ∠DAB + ∠DAE = 60°+ 30°
∴∠BAF = 90°.

Question 2.
Construct an angle of 45° at the initial point of a given ray and justify the construction.
Solution:
Data: To construct an angle of 45° at the initial point of a given ray. Steps of Construction :

1. Draw a straight line with any measurement.
2. Taking A as centre with any radius draw an arc, which meets AB at C.
3. With C centre, with the same radius draw an arc which meets at D.
4. With D centre, with the same radius, draw an arc which meets at D.
5. With centres E and D, with the previous radius draw two arcs which meet at F.
6. Now AF is joined. Now AP1AF at A. Hence ∠BAF = 90°.
7. Now, AG which is the angular bisector of ∠BAF is drawn.
8. ∠BAG = 45° is constructed.
∠FAB = 90°
AG is the angular bisector of ∠FAB
∴ ∠FAG = ∠GAB = 45°
∴ ∠GAB = 45°.

Question 3.

(i) 30°
(ii) $$22 \frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$$
(iii) 15°.
Solution:
(i) To construct 30° angle : Steps of Construction :

1. Draw PQ straight line.
2. With P as centre with any radius draw $$\frac{1}{2}$$ arc- intersects PQ at A.
3. With A as centre with the same radius draw an arc which intersects at B. Join PB and produced.
4. With A and B centres, with radius more than half of AB draw two arcs which intersect at C. Join PC.
5. ∠BPC = ∠CPQ = 30°.

(ii) To draw an angle of $$22 \frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$$
Solution: Steps of Construction:

1. Draw a straight line AB.
2. With centre ‘A’, taking a convenient radius to draw an arc which intersect AB at P.
3. With P as centre with the same radius draw an arc at Q, with Q as centre with the same radius draw an arc which intersects at R.
4. With R and Q centres with the same radius draw two arcs which intersect at S. Join AS, ∠BAS = 90°.
5. Now construct AT which is the angular bisector of ∠BAS, and joined, ∠TAB= 45°.
6. Now AU which is the angular bisector of ∠TAB, AU is joined. Now, ∠UAB = $$22 \frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$$

(iii) To construct an angle of 15° :
Solution: Steps of Construction :

1. Draw a straight line AB.
2. With A as centre with a convenient radius draw an arc which intersect AB at C.
3. With C as centre, with the same radius, draw an arc which intersects at D.
Now. ∠DAB = 60°
4. Construct AE, the bisector of ∠DAB. Join then, ∠EAB = 30°.
5. Construct AF, the bisector of ∠EAB. Join then, ∠FAB = 15°.

Question 4.
Construct the following angles and verify by measuring them by a protractor :
(i) 75°
(ii) 105°
(iii) 135°.
Solution:
(i) To construct angle 75° : Steps of Construction :

1. Draw AB with any measurement.
2. With A as centre, with convenient scale draw an arc AB which intersects at C.
3. With C as centre with the same radius draw an arc which intersects at D. ∠DAB = 60°.
4. With D as centre with the same radius draw an arc which intersects at E.
5. With Centres E and D, by taking more than half of ED draw two arcs which meet at E. AF is joined.
Now, ∠FAB = 90°.
7. ∠GAD + ∠DAB = 15 + 60 = 75°
∴ ∠GAB = 75°.

(ii) To construct angle 105° :
Solution: Steps of Construction :

1. Draw PQ with any measurement.
2. With P as centre and with any radius, draw an arc which intersects PQ at A.
3. With A as centre, with the same radius draw an arc which intersect at B.
4. With B as centre with same radius draw another arc, it intersects at C.
5. With centres C and B if two arcs are drawn these two meet at D. Join PD. ∠DPQ = 90°. Straight-line PD intersects the arc CB at E.
6. Now taking radius half of CE, if the line is drawn from C to E it intersects at F. FP is joined. Now ∠FPD = 15°.
7. ∠FPD + ∠DPQ = 15 + 90 = 105°.
∴ ∠FPQ = 105° is constructed.

(iii) To construct an angle of 135°
Solution: Steps of Construction :

1. Draw a straight line AB.
2. With A as centre, a semicircle is drawn which meets AB at C and it intersects the produced BA line at G.
3. With C as centre with the same radius and centre CD, draw a radius of arc DE.
4. With centres E and D by taking a radius more than half draw two arcs which meet at F. Join AF. ∠FAB = 90°. AF intersects ED at H.
5. With G and H centres by taking radius more than $$\frac{1}{2}$$ of the radius GH draw arcs which meet at I. AI is joined. Now, ∠IAF = 45°.
6. ∠IAF + ∠FAB = 45° + 90° = 135°
∴ ∠IAB = 135° is constructed.

Question 5.
Construct an equilateral triangle, given its side, and justify the construction.
Solution:
Data: Construct an equilateral triangle, given its side. Steps of Construction :

1. Construct AB = 6 cm.
2. With A as centre and convenient scale draw an arc, it meets AB at P.
3. With P as centre, with same radius draw an arc, it intersects the first arc at Q, AQ is joined and produced. ∠QAB = 60°.
4. With A as centre and taking 6 cm radius draw an arc. It intersects at C which is the produced line of AQ.
5. Next, BC is joined, ABC is an equilateral triangle.

In ∆ABC, ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°
AB = BC = CA = 6 cm.
In ∆ABC, AB = AC = 6 cm. ∠A = 60°
∠B = 60°
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
60 + ∠B + ∠B =180 (∵ ∠B = ∠C)
60 + 2∠B = 180
2∠B = 180 – 60
2∠B = 120°
∴ ∠B = $$\frac{120}{2}$$
∴ ∠B = 60°
∴∠B = ∠C = 60°
∴∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°
AC = BC (Opposite sides of equal angles)
But, AB = AC (known)
∴ AB = BC = CA = 6 cm.
