C. Comes from the Latin word meaning "to tax" or "to appraise"
Explanation
The correct answer is "comes from the Latin word meaning 'to tax' or 'to appraise'." The word "census" is derived from the Latin word "censere," which means "to assess" or "to estimate." In ancient Rome, a census was conducted to assess the population and property of the citizens for taxation and other purposes. This meaning has carried over to the present day, where a census is still conducted to gather information about a population for various social, economic, and political reasons.

### Match correct meaning of RIGHT ANGLE

• A.

Measures 90 degrees

Measures between 180 degrees and 360 degrees

• E.

Measures between 360 degrees and 720 degrees

A. Measures 90 degrees
Explanation
A right angle is a type of angle that measures exactly 90 degrees. It is formed when two lines intersect each other and create a square corner. In a right angle, one side of the angle is vertical and the other side is horizontal, forming a perfect L shape. This measurement of 90 degrees is a defining characteristic of a right angle, making it the correct answer.

Measures between 180 degrees and 360 degrees

• E.

Measures between 360 degrees and 720 degrees

D. Measures between 180 degrees and 360 degrees
Explanation
A reflex angle is an angle that measures between 180 degrees and 360 degrees. This means that it is greater than a straight angle (180 degrees) but less than a full rotation (360 degrees).

### Match correct meaning of GEOMETRY TEMPLATE

• A.

Comes from the Latin word meaning "to tax" or "to appraise"

• B.

Has 2 rulers - inch and centimeter scale

• C.

• D.

A flat, 2-dimensional figure made up of line segments

• E.

Has 17 different figures on it

B. Has 2 rulers - inch and centimeter scale
Explanation
A geometry template is a tool used to measure angles and has 2 rulers - inch and centimeter scale. It is not related to the Latin word meaning "to tax" or "to appraise". It is also not specifically a flat, 2-dimensional figure made up of line segments, although it can be used to draw such figures. Additionally, it does not have 17 different figures on it.
