Pyramid whose lateral edges are congruent
Correct Answer Regular Pyramid
Explanation A regular pyramid is a pyramid whose lateral edges are congruent. This means that all the slanting edges of the pyramid have the same length. In a regular pyramid, the base is a regular polygon, and the height is the perpendicular distance from the apex (top point) to the base. Since the lateral edges are congruent, it implies that all the triangular faces of the pyramid are congruent as well. Therefore, the correct answer is a regular pyramid.
Rate this question:
14.
Prism whose lateral edges meet at a right angle to the base
Correct Answer Right Prism
Explanation A right prism is a type of prism where the lateral edges meet at a right angle to the base. This means that the edges forming the sides of the prism are perpendicular to the base. The term "right" in right prism refers to the right angle formed between the lateral edges and the base. Therefore, the given answer "Right Prism" correctly describes a prism whose lateral edges meet at a right angle to the base.

What does it mean to be congruent?
A.
Corresponding sides are congruent
B.
Corresponding angles are congruent
C.
No two sides have same length
D.
At least two sides are same length
Correct Answer(s) A. Corresponding sides are congruent B. Corresponding angles are congruent
Explanation To be congruent means that corresponding sides and corresponding angles of two objects or shapes are equal in measure or length. This means that if two shapes are congruent, their corresponding sides will have the same length and their corresponding angles will have the same measure. The other options, "No two sides have the same length" and "At least two sides are the same length," do not fully capture the concept of congruence as they do not encompass both sides and angles being equal.

Correct Answer(s) B. ASA D. AAS E. SSS F. SAS
Explanation The given answer consists of four different types of congruence shortcuts: ASA (Angle-Side-Angle), AAS (Angle-Angle-Side), SSS (Side-Side-Side), and SAS (Side-Angle-Side). These shortcuts are used to prove that two triangles are congruent based on the given information about their angles and sides. ASA states that if two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. AAS states that if two angles and a non-included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the corresponding non-included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. SSS states that if the three sides of one triangle are congruent to the three sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. SAS states that if two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

What is the formula for the sum of interior angles of any polygon?
A.
2-nx180
B.
180-n+2
C.
N-2x180
D.
Nx180-2
Correct Answer C. N-2x180
Explanation The formula for the sum of interior angles of any polygon is n-2x180. This formula can be derived by dividing the polygon into (n-2) triangles, where n is the number of sides of the polygon. Each triangle has interior angles that sum up to 180 degrees. Therefore, the sum of interior angles of the polygon is equal to (n-2) multiplied by 180.

Correct Answer A. True
Explanation The statement is true because in any polygon, the number of sides is equal to the number of vertices, which is also equal to the number of interior angles. This is a fundamental property of polygons and is true for all polygons regardless of their shape or size. Therefore, the amount of sides, vertices, and interior angles in a polygon will always be the same.

Find the sum of the interior angles in a dodecagon.
Correct Answer 1800
Explanation A dodecagon is a polygon with 12 sides. To find the sum of the interior angles in a dodecagon, we can use the formula (n-2) * 180 degrees, where n is the number of sides. Plugging in the value of n as 12, we get (12-2) * 180 = 10 * 180 = 1800 degrees. Therefore, the sum of the interior angles in a dodecagon is 1800.

All quadrilaterals are parallelograms.
A.
True
B.
False
Correct Answer B. False
Explanation The statement "All quadrilaterals are parallelograms" is false because not all quadrilaterals have their opposite sides parallel. A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides, and a parallelogram is a special type of quadrilateral where opposite sides are parallel. However, there are other types of quadrilaterals, such as trapezoids or kites, where the opposite sides are not parallel. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that all quadrilaterals are parallelograms.

C.
Mess
D.
Concave hexagon
E.
Hectare
Correct Answer D. Concave hexagon
Explanation A concave hexagon is a shape that has six sides and at least one interior angle greater than 180 degrees. This means that the shape has a "caved-in" or indented portion, which is why it is called concave. In contrast, a convex hexagon would have all interior angles less than 180 degrees and no indented portions. Since the given shape is described as concave, it implies that it has at least one angle greater than 180 degrees, making it a concave hexagon.
