Q: The wires are parallel to each other, and the pole is a transversal. Find the value of X. How you know?
A: X= 32 degrees because corresponding angles are congruent.
Q: Are the pink lines parallel, perpendicular, skew, or oblique?
A: Perpendicular because when the lines meet, they form two right angles.
If a girl jumps off a diving board, then she will land in the pool.
Q: State the inverse of the above statement.
A: If a girl does not jump off a diving board, then she will not land in the pool.
Because an inverse statements in when you negate the hypothesis and conclusion.
Q: What is this above building demonstrating?
A: A tessellation because a tessellation is when you have a bunch of the same shape put together, it makes a bigger form of that shape.
Q: Is this an example of an included angle, or included side?
A: Included side because and included side is the side between two angles.
Q: Can the pink side of the house tessellate?
A: No because a pentagon can not tessellate. No matter how many pentagons you put together, it will never make a larger pentagon.
Q: Which type of triangle is this?
A: This is an acute equilateral triangle because all angles are acute and all sides are equal
Q: Solve for X
A: X= 23 becuase When you all all you the angle measurments together they will equal 180 degreese
Q: How do you know that the above lines are parallel?
A: They are parallel because corresponding angles are congruent.
Q: Given the above information, prove that triangle ABC is congruent to triangle ADC
