Question

Choose the correct alternative. 

In the adjoining figure, if line a || line b and line l is a transversal then find x. 

  • 90°

  • 60°

  • 45°

  • 30°

Solution

Let us mark the points P and Q on a; R and S on b; A and B on l.
Suppose PQ and AB intersect at M; RS and AB intersect at N.
Since a||b and l is a transversal, then
m∠RNM = m∠SNB    (Vertically opposite angles)
 ⇒ ∠RNM  = 2x  
Now, m∠RNM + m∠PMN  = 180°    (Interior angles on the same side of transversal are supplementary)
 ⇒ 2x + 4x = 180°
 ⇒ 6x = 180°

 ⇒ x = `(180°)/6`
⇒ x = 30°

So, the correct answer is option (D).

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
