In a trapezium PQRS, PQ ║ RS; and ∠P = 70° and ∠Q = 80°. Calculate the measure of ∠S and ∠R.
Let us consider trapezium PQRS with PQ||RS.
According to the problem, it is given that ∠P = 700and ∠Q = 800.
We know that the sum of adjacent angles between two parallel lines is 1800.
i.e, ∠P + ∠S = 1800 ...... - - (1)
∠Q + ∠R = 1800. ...... - (2)
Substituting the value of ∠P in eq(1) we get,
⇒ 700 + ∠S = 1800
⇒ ∠S = 1800 - 700
⇒ ∠S = 1100.
Substituting the value of ∠Q in eq(2) we get,
⇒ 800 + ∠R = 1800
⇒ ∠R = 1800 - 800
⇒ ∠R = 1000.
The values of ∠S and ∠R is1100 and 1000.
