Q. 4

The angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio 1:2:3:4. What are the measures of the four angles?

Answer :

Given the ratio of the angles of a quadrilateral = 1:2:3:4
Therefore, let the angles of the quadrilateral be x, 2x, 3x and 4x.
The sum of the angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.
⇒ x+2x+3x+4x = 360°
⇒ 10x = 360°
⇒ x = 36°
⇒ 2x = 2 × 36° = 72°
⇒ 3x = 3 × 36° = 108°
⇒ 4x = 4 × 36° = 144°
∴ The measures of the four angles are 36°, 72°, 108° and 144°.
