Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Two triangles with equal sides are considered _____________.

    • A.

      Similar

    • B.

      Congruent

    • C.

      Isosceles

    Correct Answer
    B. Congruent
    Explanation
    Two triangles with equal sides are considered congruent. Congruent triangles have the same shape and size, meaning that all corresponding sides and angles are equal. If two triangles have equal sides, it implies that they have the same shape and size, making them congruent to each other. Similar triangles, on the other hand, have the same shape but different sizes, while isosceles triangles have two equal sides but may have different angles.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A triangle with two equal sides and one non-equal side is called ____________.

    • A.

      Isoscelese

    • B.

      Scalene

    • C.

      Equilateral

    • D.

      Right

    Correct Answer
    A. Isoscelese
    Explanation
    An isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two sides of equal length and one side of different length. It is not equilateral because in an equilateral triangle all sides are equal in length. It is not scalene because in a scalene triangle all sides are of different lengths. It is not right because the term "right" refers to a right angle, not the lengths of the sides. Therefore, the correct term for a triangle with two equal sides and one non-equal side is isosceles.

  • 3. 

    A polygon with five sides is called a ____________.

    • A.

      Hexagon

    • B.

      Octogon

    • C.

      Pentagon

    • D.

      Trapezoid

    Correct Answer
    C. Pentagon
    Explanation
    A polygon with five sides is called a pentagon.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Two angles whose measures have a sum of 180 degrees are called ___________.

    • A.

      Supplimentary

    • B.

      Acute

    • C.

      Right

    • D.

      Complimentary

    Correct Answer
    A. Supplimentary
    Explanation
    Two angles whose measures have a sum of 180 degrees are called supplementary angles. Supplementary angles are pairs of angles that when added together, result in a total of 180 degrees. In other words, they are angles that form a straight line.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A circle has a total of how many degrees?

    • A.

      90

    • B.

      180

    • C.

      360

    • D.

      540

    Correct Answer
    C. 360
    Explanation
    A circle has a total of 360 degrees because a circle is made up of 360 equal parts called degrees. Each degree represents one part out of the 360 parts that make up a complete circle. Therefore, the correct answer is 360.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A triangle has a total of how many degrees?

    • A.

      90

    • B.

      180

    • C.

      360

    • D.

      540

    Correct Answer
    B. 180
    Explanation
    A triangle has a total of 180 degrees because the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is always 180 degrees. This is a fundamental property of triangles in Euclidean geometry. Each angle in a triangle can vary in size, but the sum of all three angles will always add up to 180 degrees.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Two angles whose sum is 90 degrees are called _________.

    • A.

      Supplimentary

    • B.

      Right

    • C.

      Acute

    • D.

      Complimentary

    Correct Answer
    D. Complimentary
    Explanation
    Two angles whose sum is 90 degrees are called complementary angles. Complementary angles are a pair of angles that add up to form a right angle. In this case, the correct answer is "Complimentary" which is a misspelling of "Complementary".

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A regular polygon has ___________.

    • A.

      All equal sides

    • B.

      All equal angles

    • C.

      A and B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. A and B
    Explanation
    A regular polygon has all equal sides and all equal angles. This means that all of its sides have the same length and all of its angles have the same measure. Therefore, both options A and B are correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Two lines with a common endpoint and vertex for a/an ____________.

    • A.

      Ray

    • B.

      Angle

    • C.

      Polygon

    • D.

      Line Segment

    Correct Answer
    B. Angle
    Explanation
    Two lines with a common endpoint and vertex form an angle. An angle is formed when two rays share a common endpoint, called the vertex. The two rays are known as the sides of the angle.
