## Wonders of the World Math Problems

Here, you will solve geometry problems that are based on the Wonders of the World. You can use these problems to study for future references. I hope you enjoy the following questions!

1. Solve for "x" and tell what type of triangle it is.

2. Are the two lines parallel, skew or oblique?

3. What is the relationship between angles 1 and 5, 2 and 3, and 2 and 7?

4. What is the measure of "x"?

5. What are the measures of angles "x, y and z"?

6. Are these two lines parallel, skew, or oblique

7. Solve for "x".

8. What are the name of the triangles?

9. What is the distance between the two points?

10. What is the midpoint of the the line?

Answers:

1. x= 65 degrees

2. skew

3. 1 and 5 = corresponding angles, 2 and 3 = vertical angles, and 2 and 7 = alternate exterior angles

4. x= 90 degrees

5. x= 45 degrees, y= 135 degrees, and z= 45 degrees

6. parallel

7. 30 degrees

8. obtuse isosceles

9. 6 units

10. midpoint = (3/2,-3)
