**Line Segment**

A line segment is a fixed portion of a line. This makes it possible to measure a line segment. This measure of each line segment is a unique number called its “length”. We use this idea to compare line segments.

To compare any two line segments, we find a relation between their lengths.

This can be done in several ways.

**(i) Comparison by observation: **The method of comparing two segements by observations is not always correct. Therefore, we need a better method.

**(ii) Comparison using Ruler and a Divider : **

**(a) Using a Ruler : **Suppose we have to measure the length of a given segment AB. Take a ruler with centimeter marks and place it along the segment AB such that the

zero mark on the ruler is just at A as shown in the figure. Now read the mark on the ruler which corresponds to B. In this figure we see that the mark corresponding to B is the eighth small division after 5, i.e. AB contains 5 full centimeters and 8 millimeters. We say that the length of AB is 5.8 cm and write it as AB = 5.8 cm.

**(b) Using a Divider :** We open the divider such that the point of one arm is at A and the second exactly at B, i.e. the segment AB is contained in the divider. Now lift the divider carefully without disturbing its opening and place it on the ruler so that one point of the divider is at zero (0) mark. We then read the mark which corresponds to the second point of the divider.

In the adjoining figure the second point of the divider is at the seventh mark after 3,

i.e. AB contains 3 complete centimetres and seven-tenths of a centimetre. We say that AB is 3 cm and 7 mm and write it as AB = 3.7 cm.

**Units for measurment of line segments :**The unit of measurment of length is metre.

A metre is divided into 100 equal parts, each called a centimetre. A centimetre is further subdivided into 10 equal parts, each called a millimetre.

Thus we have the following table :

10 Millimetres (mm) = 1 Centimetre (cm)

10 Centimetres(cm) = 1 Decimetre (dm)

10 Decimetres (dm) = 1 Metre (m)

or , 1 metre = 10 decimetres

= 100 centimetres

= 1000 millimetres

**Ex.** If B is the mid point of AC and C is the mid-point of BD where A, B, C and D are collinear, show that AB = CD ?

**Sol. ** B is the mid-point of AC

*∴* AB = BC .....(i)

Again C is the mid-point of BD

CD = BC .....(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we get

AB = CD

**Quadrilaterals, Polygons and Three Dimensional Shapes**

**QUADRILATERALS**

A closed figure surrounded by four line segments is called a quadrilateral.

A quadrilateral ABCD has:

Four vertices, named as A, B, C and D

Four sides, named as AB, BC, CD and DA

Four angles, named as angle A, angle B, angle C and angle D

Two diagonals, named as angle AC and angle BD

**Adjacent Sides**

Two sides of a quadrilateral triangle are having a common close (end) point are known as triangle’s adjacent or consecutive sides. In the quadrilateral given below, There are four pairs of its adjacent sides. (AB, BC), (BC, CD), (CD, DA) and Opposite Sides are (BA, AD)

opposite sides of the triangle are defined as the Two sides of the quadrilateral are having no common end point.

In the quadrilateral (AB, CD) and (BC, AD) are opposite sides of its two pairs.

**Adjacent Angles**

Two angles of a quadrilateral that are having a common section are called its adjacent or consecutive angles. In the quadrilateral (angle A, angle B), (angle B, angle C), (angle C, angle D) and (angle D, angle A) are four pairs of adjacent angles of triangle

**Opposite Angles**

Two angles of a quadrilateral triangle are not having a common section are called its opposite angles of triangle.

In the quadrilateral (angle A, angle C) and (angle B, angle D) are two pairs of its opposite angles of triangle.

The sum of all the angles of a quadrilateral triangle is 360°.

The sum of exterior angles of a quadrilateral triangle is 360°.

**Parallelogram**

A quadrilateral triangle in which two pairs of opposite sides are parallel is called a parallelogram.

**In a Parallelogram:**

Opposite sides are equal

Opposite angles are equal

each diagonal bisects the parallelogram

when pair of opposite sides of a Quadrilateral triangle are equal and parallel, it is a parallelogram

**Rectangle: **A parallelogram each of their angle having size of 90° is called a Rectangle.

**In a Rectangle:**

Opposite sides are equal

each angle measure is 90°

Diagonals are equal

Diagonals bisect each other

**Square: **A Rectangle that has all sides equal is known as a square. When two adjoining sides of a Rectangle are equal, then it is known as a Square

**In a Square:**

All sides are equal

Each angle measures 90°

Diagonals are equal

Diagonals bisect each other

Diagonals intersect at right angles

**Rhombus: **A parallelogram that have all sides equal is known as a Rhombus

**In a Rhombus:**

Opposite sides are parallel

All sides are equal

All Diagonals cut across each other at right angles of triangle

**Trapezium: **A Quadrilateral in which two opposite facing sides are parallel is known as a trapezium. In diagonal divides proportionally

when the (unequal) non parallel sides of a trapezium are equal. It is called as isosceles-trapezium

**Kite: **The Quadrilateral in which two pairs of the adjacent sides are equal is called as a kite. The longer diagonal intersects the shorter diagonal.

**Relation between Quadrilaterals**

**POLYGONS**

A closed plane image enclosed by three or more line segments is known as a polygon. The line sections that form a polygon are called its sides. The point of intersection of two following sides of a polygon is known as a vertex.

The total number of vertices of a polygon is always equal to the number of its sides.

A polygon of n-sides is called n-gon. Thus, a polygon of 20 sides is a 20-gon

**Diagonal of a Polygon**

A line segment that join with any two non-consecutive vertices of a polygon is called diagonal of polygon. Therefore, in the figure ABCDE is a polygon image and each of the line segments AC, AD, BD, BE and CE is the diagonal of the polygon.

**Interior and Exterior Angle of a Polygon:**

An angle made by the two consecutive (following) sides of the polygon is known as an interior angle or we can say that an angle of the polygon.

From this s table, we can see that the number of triangles formed in a polygon is two smaller than the number of sides. So for a polygon with n sides, the number of triangles formed is n – 2.

A polygon with n sides has the angle sum :( n – 2) × 180°.

Hence, S = (n – 2) 180°.

In a regular polygon with n sides each inside angle is equal to (n–2) ×180n (n–2) ×180n

When each side of a polygon is produced (extended) in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction, surface (outer part of the angel) angles are formed as shown.

The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is 360°.

**THREE DIMENSIONAL Figures
