**Question 2.**

**Construct ΔPQR if PQ = 5 cm, m∠PQR = 105o and m∠QRP = 40o.**

**(Hint: Recall angle-sum property of a triangle).**

**Solution**:-

From the previous lessons we know that the sum all of the angles inside of a triangle is 180o.

∴ ∠PQR + ∠QRP + ∠RPQ = 180o

= 105o+ 40o+ ∠RPQ = 180o

= 145o + ∠RPQ = 180o

= ∠RPQ = 180o

– 1450

= ∠RPQ = 35o

Therefore, the measures of ∠RPQ comes out to be = 35o.

Steps for construction of the figure,

1. Draw a straight line segment PQ of 5 cm.

2. At the point P, draw a straight ray L that makes an angle of 35o

i.e. ∠LPQ = 35o.

3. At the point Q, draw a straight ray M that makes an angle of 105o

i.e. ∠PQM = 105o.

4. Now mark the intersecting point of the two rays PL and QM as point R.

Then, ΔPQR is formed and is the required triangle.

**Question 3.**

**Examine whether you can construct ΔDEF such that EF = 7.2 cm, m∠E =**

**110° and m∠F = 80°. Justify your answer.**

**Solution**:-

According to the question,

EF = 7.2 cm

∠E = 110o

∠F = 80o

Verifying if it is possible to construct ΔDEF from the given values.

Then,

∠D + ∠E + ∠F = 180o

∠D + 110o+ 80o= 180o

∠D + 190o = 180o

∠D = 180o– 1900

∠D = -10o

It can be seen that the sum of two angles is 190o

and is greater than 180o . So, the triangle is not possible.
