**Exercise 14(A)**

**Solution 1:**

**Solution 2:**

**Solution 3:**

**Solution 4:**

In this linear equation n and k must be integer. Therefore to satisfy this equation the minimum value of k must be 6 to get n as integer.

Hence the number of sides are: 5 + 6 = 11.

**Exercise 14(B)**

**Solution 1:**

(i)True.

This is true, because we know that a rectangle is a parallelogram. So, all the properties of a parallelogram are true for a rectangle. Since the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, the same holds true for a rectangle.

(ii)False

This is not true for any random quadrilateral. Observe the quadrilateral shown below.

Clearly the diagonals of the given quadrilateral do not bisect each other. However, if the quadrilateral was a special quadrilateral like a parallelogram, this would hold true.

(iii)False

Consider a rectangle as shown below.

It is a parallelogram. However, the diagonals of a rectangle do not intersect at right angles, even though they bisect each other.

(iv)True

Since a rhombus is a parallelogram, and we know that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, hence the diagonals of a rhombus too, bisect other.

(v)False

This need not be true, since if the angles of the quadrilateral are not right angles, the quadrilateral would be a rhombus rather than a square.

(vi)True

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and equal.

Since opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel, and all the sides of the rhombus are equal, a rhombus is a parallelogram.

(vii)False

This is false, since a parallelogram in general does not have all its sides equal. Only opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal. However, a rhombus has all its sides equal. So, every parallelogram cannot be a rhombus, except those parallelograms that have all equal sides.

(viii)False

This is a property of a rhombus. The diagonals of a rhombus need not be equal.

(ix)True

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and equal.

A rhombus is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel, and all sides equal.

If in a parallelogram the adjacent sides are equal, it means all the sides of the parallelogram are equal, thus forming a rhombus.

(x)False

Observe the above figure. The diagonals of the quadrilateral shown above bisect each other at right angles, however the quadrilateral need not be a square, since the angles of the quadrilateral are clearly not right angles.

**Solution 2:**

**Solution 3:**

**Solution 4:**

**Solution 5:**

**Solution 6:**

**Solution 7:**

**Solution 8:**

**Solution 9:**

**Solution 10:**

We know that AQCP is a quadrilateral. So sum of all angles must be 360.

∴ x + y + 90 + 90 = 360

x + y = 180

Given x:y = 2:1

So substitute x = 2y

3y = 180

y = 60

x = 120

We know that angle C = angle A = x = 120

Angle D = Angle B = 180 – x = 180 – 120 = 60

Hence, angles of parallelogram are 120, 60, 120 and 60.
