# Geometrical Constructions Solution of TS & AP Board Class 9 Mathematics

###### Exercise 13.1

**Question 1.**

Construct the following angles at the initial point of a given ray and justify the construction.

90^{o}

**Answer:**

Construction of angle of 90°

__Steps of construction:__

Step 2: With its initial point O as center and any radius, draw an arc, cutting OA at C.

Step 3: With center c and same radius (as in step 2) draw an arc cutting arc at D.

Step 4: With D as center and the same radius, draw an arc cutting the arc cutting at E.

Step 5: With D and E as centers and any convenient radius (more than DE). Draw to two arcs intersecting at P.

Step 6: Join OP. Then ∠AOP = 90°

__Justification: -__

By construction, OC = CD = OD

Therefore, Î”OCD is an equilateral triangle. So, ∠COD = 60°

Again OD = DE = OE

Therefore, Î”ODE is also an equilateral triangle. So, ∠DOE = 60°

Since, OP bisects ∠DOE, so ∠POD = 30°.

Now,

∠AOP = ∠COD + ∠DOP

= 60° + 30°

= 90°

Construction of angle of 45°

__Steps of construction:__

Step 1: Draw a ray OA.

Step 2: With its initial point O as center and any radius, draw an arc, cutting OA at B.

Step 3: With center B and same radius (as in step 2), cut the previous drawn arc at C.

Step 4: With C as center and the same radius, draw an arc cutting the arc drawn in step 2 cutting at D.

Step 5: With D and E as centers and any convenient radius (more than DE). Draw to two arcs intersecting at E.

Step 6: Join OE. Then ∠AOE = 90°

Step 7: Draw the bisector ‘OF’ of ∠AOE. Then, ∠AOF = 45°

__Justification: -__

By construction, ∠AOE = 90° and OF is the bisector of ∠AOE.

Therefore,

∠AOF = ∠AOE

=

= 45°

On measuring ∠AOB, with the protractor,

we find ∠ AOB = 15°.

Thus ∠AOD = 15°
