## NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 5 Understanding Elementary Shapes Ex 5.4

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 1.
What is the measure of
(i) a right angle?
(ii) a straight angle?
Solution:
(i) 1 right angle = 90°
(ii) 1 straight angle = 2 right angles = 2 x 90°=180°

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 2.
Say True or False:
(a) The measure of an acute angle < 90°.
(b) The measure of an obtuse angle < 90°.
(c) The measure of a reflex angle > 180°.
(d) The measure of one complete revolution = 360°.
(e) If m∠A = 53° and m∠B = 35°, then m∠A > m∠B.
Solution:
(a) True
(b) False
(c) True
(d) True
(e) True

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 3.
Write down the measures of
(a) some acute angles.
(b) some obtuse angles.
(give at least two examples of each).
Solution:
(a) Since the measure of an acute angle < 90°. So, two acute angles may be of 60° and 30°.
(b) Since the measure of an obtuse angle > 90°. So, two obtuse angles may be of 110° and 120°.

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 4.
Measure the angles given below using the Protractor and write down the measure. Solution:
On measuring the given angles using protractor, we find that
(a) 45°
(b) 125°
(c) 90°
(d) ∠1 = 40°, ∠2 = 125° and ∠3 = 95°.

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 5.
Which angle has a large measure ? First estimate and then measure.
Measure of Angle A =
Measure of Angle B = Solution:
Observing the given angles, we find that
∠B > ∠A
On measuring, we find that
Measure of Angle A =40°
Measure of Angle B = 65°
∴ ∠B > ∠A.

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 6.
From these two angles which has larger measure? Estimate and then confirm by measuring them. Solution:
On observing, we find that
∠B > ∠A
On measuring, we find that
∠A = 45° and ∠B =60°
Thus, ∠B > ∠A.

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 7.
Fill in the blanks with acute, obtuse, right or straight:
(a) An angle whose measure is less than that of a right angle is ……. .
(b) An angle whose measure is greater than that of a right angle is ……… .
(c) An angle whose measure is the sum of the measures of two right angles is ……. .
(d) When the sum of the measures of two angles is that of a right angle, then each one of them is …… .
(e) When the sum of the measures of two angles is that of a straight angle and if one of them is acute then the other should be …… .
Solution:
(a) acute
(b) obtuse
(c) straight
(d) acute
(e) obtuse

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 8.
Find the measure of the angle shown in each figure. (First estimate with your eyes and then find the actual measure with a protractor). Solution:
On estimating without measuring, the measure of the angle shown in each figure is
(a) 45°
(b) 60°
(c) 125°
(d) 135°

On measuring with the protractor, we find their measures as under:
(a) 40°
(b) 65°
(c) 130°
(d) 135°

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 9.
Find the angle measure between the hands of the clock in each figure: Solution:
The angle measure between the hands of the clock in the time shown is as under:
At 9.00 a.m. : 90°
At 1.00 p.m. : 30°
At 6.00 p.m. : 180°

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 10.
Investigate
In the given figure, the angle measures 30°. Look at the same figure through a magnifying glass. Does the angle becomes larger? Does the size of the angle change? Solution:
Looking through a magnifying glass does not make the angle larger and so the size of the angle does not change.

Ex 5.4 Class 6 Maths Question 11.
Measure and classify each angle: Solution:
The measure of angle and its classification is recorded in the given table as under: We hope the NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 5 Understanding Elementary Shapes Ex 5.4 help you.
