Questions and Answers
1.
A Circle and Pentagon are both considered POLYGONS
A.
True
B.
False
Correct Answer B. False
Explanation A circle is not considered a polygon because it does not have straight sides. A polygon is defined as a closed figure with straight sides. A circle, on the other hand, is a curved shape with no straight sides. Therefore, the statement that a circle is considered a polygon is false.

WHAT AM I ???
What am I?
A.
TRAPEZOID
B.
RHOMBUS
C.
RECTANGLE
D.
PARALLELOGRAM
Correct Answer D. PARALLELOGRAM
Explanation A parallelogram fits the given description because it has 4 corners and 2 sets of sides that are equal in size. It also has two sets of parallel sides, which means that opposite sides are parallel to each other. Additionally, a parallelogram has a set of acute and obtuse angles, as its opposite angles are congruent. Therefore, a parallelogram is the correct answer.

USING MATHEMATICAL LANGUAGE AND TERMINOLOGY, Explain a difference between A SEPTAGON and A DODECAGON? Refer to the number of sides or angles within each shape.
Correct Answer(s) a septagon has 7 sides and a dodecagon has 12 sides a septagon has 7 sides, a dodecagon has 12 sides a septagon has 7 sides,dodecagon has 12 sides a dodecagon has 12 sides, a septagon has 7 sides a dodecagon has 12 sides and a septagon has 7 sides a septagon has seven sides and a dodecagon has twelve sides a septagon has seven sides, a dodecagon has twelve sides septagon has 7 sides, dodecagon has 12 sides dodecagon has 12 sides and a septagon has 7 sides a septagon includes 7 sides and a dodecagon includes 12 sides a septagon has 7 angles and a dodecagon has 12 angles a septagon has 7 angles, a dodecagon has 12 angles dodecagon has 12 angles, and a septagon has 7 angles
Explanation A septagon has 7 sides and a dodecagon has 12 sides. This means that a septagon is a polygon with 7 straight sides, while a dodecagon is a polygon with 12 straight sides. The number of sides in a polygon determines its shape and distinguishes it from other polygons.

Of the choices below, which shapes are considered Three dimensional?
A.
Cylinder
B.
Trapezoid
C.
Decagon
D.
Rectangular Prism
E.
Square
F.
Cube
G.
Isosceles Triangle
H.
Pentagonal Prism
I.
Cone
Correct Answer(s) A. Cylinder D. Rectangular Prism F. Cube H. Pentagonal Prism I. Cone
Explanation The shapes that are considered three-dimensional are objects that have length, width, and height. These objects occupy space and have volume. In this case, the shapes that fit this description are the cylinder, rectangular prism, cube, pentagonal prism, and cone. These shapes have three dimensions and can be seen from different angles, unlike two-dimensional shapes like the trapezoid, decagon, square, and isosceles triangle.
