**CBSE Class 9 Maths Lab Manual – Property of Cyclic Quadrilateral**

**Objective**

To verify that the opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary by paper folding activity.

**Prerequisite Knowledge**

- A quadrilateral whose all four vertices lies on the circle is known as cyclic quadrilateral.
- Concept of opposite angles of a quadrilateral.
- Concept of Supplementary angles.

**Materials Required**

White paper sheet, compass, glazed papers, pencil, a pair of scissors, gluestick.

**Procedure**

- Draw a circle of radius 2 cm on a white glazed paper with centre O.
- Cut this circle with centre O and draw one more circle of same radius.
- Take any four points A, B, C, D on the circumference of both the circles.
- Join AB, BC, CD, DA by paper folding on the both the circles.
- We get a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD on both the circles [fig.(i) and fig.(ii)]. Take ∠A and ∠C of blue colour and ∠B and ∠D of pink colour in both circles.

- From the second circle, using transparent sheets make cut outs of ∠A, ∠B, ∠C, ∠D. [fig. (iii)]. Take ∠A and ∠C of blue colour and ∠B and ∠D of pink colour.

- Make a straight line on white paper sheet. Place cut outs of ∠A and ∠C adjacent to each other on a straight line and paste them [fig.(iv)].
- Take cut outs of ∠B and ∠D and place them adjacent to each other on another straight line and paste them [fig.(iv)].

**Observation**

As ∠A and ∠C forms a linear pair.

∴ ∠A + ∠C = 180°

Similarly, ∠B + ∠D = 180°

**Result**

Hence, it is verified that in a cyclic quadrilateral, sum of opposite angles is 180°.

**Learning Outcome**

If a cyclic quadrilateral is a parallelogram then it become a rectangle, this can be proyed by paper folding and cutting method.

**Activity Time**

By same paper cutting activity students can verify that in a cyclic quadrilateral, the exterior angle is equal to the opposite interior angle.
