Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You have determined after using a protractor that one of the angles of the following triangle is 90 degrees, and one angle is 45 degrees. What is the measurement of the missing angle?

    • A.

      90

    • B.

      225

    • C.

      15

    • D.

      45

    Correct Answer
    D. 45
    Explanation
    Using the formula for triangles, Subtract the known angles from 180
    180-90-45= 45

    Approximately how many degrees is the angle XYZ being measured by the protractor?

    • A.

      60

    • B.

      120

    • C.

      85

    • D.

      90

    Correct Answer
    A. 60
    Explanation
    This is an acute angle, therefore you use the smaller scale on the protractor. The Angle is approximately 60 degrees.

    If three of the angles in a quadrilateral are 50, 100, 110 degrees what is the measure of the fourth angle?

    • A.

      40 degrees

    • B.

      100 degrees

    • C.

      130 degrees

    • D.

      160 degrees

    Correct Answer
    B. 100 degrees
    Explanation
    The sum of the angles in a quadrilateral is always 360 degrees. Therefore, to find the measure of the fourth angle, we subtract the sum of the three given angles (50 + 100 + 110 = 260) from 360. 360 - 260 = 100 degrees.

    Two sides of a triangle measure 8 centimeters and 13 centimeters. Which of the following could be the length of the third side in order for it to be an isosceles triangle?

    • A.

      4 cm

    • B.

      8 cm

    • C.

      14 cm

    • D.

      18 cm

    Correct Answer
    B. 8 cm
    Explanation
    An isosceles triangle has two sides that are equal in length. In this case, the given sides of the triangle measure 8 cm and 13 cm. To form an isosceles triangle, the third side must also be equal to one of the given sides. Therefore, the length of the third side could be 8 cm.

    • C.

      55 degrees

    • D.

      75 degrees

    Correct Answer
    C. 55 degrees
    Explanation
    The measure of angle WZX is 55 degrees.
