6 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm**

**(v)
3.5 cm, 3.5 cm, 3.5 cm**

** (vi) 9 cm,
4 cm, 5 cm**

**(i) 8 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm**

The sum of two smaller sides = 6 + 4 = 10 cm > 8 cm, the
third side.

The sum of two smaller sides is greater than the third side.

So, a triangle can be formed with the given sides.

It is scalene triangle.

**(ii) 10 cm, 8 cm, 5 cm**

The sum of two smaller sides = 8 + 5 = 13 cm > 10 cm, the
third side.

The sum of two smaller sides is greater than the third side.

So, a triangle can be formed with the given sides.

It is scalene triangle.

**(iii) 6.2 cm, 1.3 cm, 3.5 cm**

The sum of two smaller sides = 1.3 + 3.5 = 4.8 cm < 6.2 cm the
third side.

The sum of two smaller sides is lesser than the third side.

So, a triangle can not be formed with the given sides.

**(iv) 6 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm**

The sum of two smaller sides = 6 + 4=10 cm > 6 cm, the third
side

The sum of two smaller sides is greater than the third side.

So, a triangle can be formed with the given sides.

It is Isosceles triangle.

**(v) 3.5 cm, 3.5 cm, 3.5 cm**

The three sides are equal, so definitely a triangle can be
formed, as the triangle in equality is satisfied. It is equilateral triangle.

**(vi) 9 cm, 4 cm, 5 cm**

The sum of two smaller sides = 4 + 5 = 9 cm, the third side.

The sum of two smaller sides is not greater than the third side.

So, a triangle can not be formed with the given sides.

**8.
Can a triangle be formed with the following angles? If yes, name the type of triangle.**

**(i)
60° , 60° , 60° **

**(ii)
90° , 55° , 35° **

**(iii)
60° , 40° , 42° **

**(iv)
60° , 90° , 90° **

**(v)
70° , 60° , 50°**

**(vi)
100° , 50° , 30°**

**(i) 60°, 60°, 60°**

The sum of three angles = 60° + 60° + 60° = 180°

So, a triangle can be formed with the given angles.

It is acute angled triangle.

**(ii) 90°, 55°, 35°**

The sum of three angles = 90° + 55° + 35° = 180°

So, a triangle can be formed with the given angles.

It is right angled triangle.

**(iii) 60°, 40°, 42°**

The sum of three angles = 60° + 40° + 42° = 142° ≠ 180°

So, a triangle can not be formed with the given angles.

**(iv) 60°, 90°, 90°**

The sum of three angles = 60° + 90° + 92° = 240° ≠ 180°

So, a triangle can not be formed with the given angles.

**(v) 70°, 60°, 50°**

The sum of three angles = 70° + 60° + 50° = 180°

So, a triangle can be formed with the given angles.

It is acute angled triangle.

**(vi) 100°, 50°, 30°**

The sum of three angles = 100° + 50° + 30° = 180°

So, a triangle can be formed with the given angles.

It is obtuse angled triangle.

**9.
Two angles of the triangles are given. Find the third angle.**

**(i)
80° , 60° **

**(ii)
75° , 35° **

**(iii)

**(iv)
50° , 90° **

**(v)
120° , 30°**

**(vi)
55° , 85°**

**(i) 80°, 60°**

**The two angles 80°, 60°**

The sum of three angles = 180°

The sum of two angles = 80° + 60° = 140°

The third angle = The sum of three angles − The sum of two
angles

= 180°− 140° = 40°

**(ii) 75°, 35°**

**The two angles 75°, 35°**

The sum of three angles = 180°

The sum of two angles = 75° + 35° = 110°

The third angle = The sum of three angles − The sum of two
angles

= 180°− 110° = 70°

**(iii) 52°, 68°**

**The two angles 52°, 68°**

The sum of three angles = 180°

The sum of two angles = 52° + 68° = 120°

The third angle = The sum of three angles − The sum of two
angles

= 180°− 120° = 60°

**(iv) 50°, 90°**

**The two angles 50°, 90°**

The sum of three angles = 180°

The sum of two angles = 50° + 90° = 140°

The third angle = The sum of three angles − The sum of two
angles

= 180°− 140° = 40°

**(v) 120°, 30°**

**The two angles 120°, 30°**

The sum of three angles = 180°

The sum of two angles = 120° + 30° = 150°

The third angle = The sum of three angles − The sum of two
angles

= 180° − 150° = 30°

**(vi) 55°, 85°**

**The two angles 55°, 85°**

The sum of three angles = 180°

The sum of two angles = 55° + 85° = 140°

The third angle = The sum of three angles − The sum of two
angles

= 180° − 140° = 40°
