**Ch – 5 ****Understanding Elementary Shapes**

**Answer**

- 1

Explanation: The four main direction north, east, south, west. Each of them are at 90^{o}clockwise, i.e. we have to move 90^{o}to move north to east, another 90^{o}from east to south like that.

So South to west we have to move only one 90^{o}. so answer is 1

- 1

Explanation: Hour hand move 360^{o}from 12 to 12 . So it moves 3 hr from 3 to 6 . The factor of 3 to 12 {tex}= 3/12 = 1/4{/tex}

Right angle = 90^{o}, factor of 90^{o}with 360^{o }{tex}= 90 /360 =1/4 .{/tex}

So Hour hand will turn one right angle to cross 3 to 6

- 1
- (d) {tex}\frac{1}{4}{/tex} Explanation: In clock hour hand moves 12 hr from 12 o’ clock to 12 o’ clock. Fro12 to it 3 it is 3 hr , so fraction of 3 hr from 12 hr {tex}= 3/ 12 = 1/ 4 {/tex}. Or, the hour hand moves360
^{o}form 12 to 12, from 12 to 3 it moves 90^{o}, so fraction of 90^{o}from 360^{o}{tex} = 90/360=1/4{/tex}

- (d) {tex}\frac{1}{4}{/tex} Explanation: In clock hour hand moves 12 hr from 12 o’ clock to 12 o’ clock. Fro12 to it 3 it is 3 hr , so fraction of 3 hr from 12 hr {tex}= 3/ 12 = 1/ 4 {/tex}. Or, the hour hand moves360
- Straight angle

Explanation: One revolution = 360^{o }

Half revolution {tex}x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}{/tex} 180^{o}

180^{o}is called straight angle

- Straight angle
- {tex}\overleftrightarrow {PQ} \bot \overleftrightarrow {RS}{/tex} Explanation: {tex}\overleftrightarrow {PQ} \bot \overleftrightarrow {RS}{/tex}

- – b
- – c
- – d
- – a

- 360
- two
- 90
- 8

- True
- False; in isosceles triangle only two sides are equal.
- False; For a polygon to be regular, all sides as well as all angles have to be equal.
- True

- In geometry, a tetrahedron is a polyhedron composed of four triangular faces, three of which meet at each corner or vertex.
- Straight Angle (180°)
- Hexagon

Sides of hexagon: AB, BC, CD, DE, EF and FA.

Diagonals of hexagon: AC, AD, AE, BD, BE, BF, CE, CF, and DF

{tex}\because{/tex} B is the mid-point of {tex}\overline{A C}{/tex}

∴ AB = BC …(1)

{tex}\because{/tex}C is the mid-point of {tex}\overline{B D}{/tex}

∴ BC = CD …(2)

In view of (1) and (2), we get

AB = CD.- 45°
- 125°
- 90°
- ∠1 = 40°, ∠2 = 125° and ∠3 = 95°.

- An isosceles triangle is any triangle with 2 sides that are equal in length. So every equilateral triangle is a special case of an isosceles triangle since not just 2 sides are equal, but all 3 are. But every isosceles triangle is not equilateral, because you can have 2 sides of equal length and a third side that is either longer or shorter than those 2 sides. For example, if the triangle is a right-angle triangle and the two sides that meet to make the right angle are the same length, then the 3rd side would be longer than those two.
