Congruency and lines of symmetry are topics in Mathematics that need a lot of practice. How well have you mastered these two major concepts? The quiz below will help you in gauging how good you are. All the best.

### What is this shape?

• A.

Cone

• B.

Square

• C.

Rectangle

• D.

Circle

• E.

Triangle

E. Triangle
Explanation
The shape described in the question is a triangle. A triangle is a polygon with three sides and three angles. It is a closed figure with straight sides. The other options, such as cone, square, rectangle, and circle, do not match the description of a triangle. A cone is a three-dimensional shape, while square, rectangle, and circle are all two-dimensional shapes with different numbers of sides and angles. Therefore, the correct answer is triangle.

### What two words complete this definition:  Congruent figures are the same _________ and _________.  (Pick two answers)

• A.

Shape

• B.

Size

• C.

Color

• D.

Direction

A. Shape
B. Size
Explanation
Congruent figures are the same shape and size. This means that they have the same form or outline, and their dimensions, such as length, width, and height, are equal. The concept of congruence in geometry refers to the idea that two figures are identical in shape and size, even if they may be positioned differently or oriented in different directions. Therefore, the correct answers to complete the definition are "shape" and "size".

### Two figures that are the same size and shape are ________________.

• A.

Similar

• B.

Opposite

• C.

Congruent

• D.

Different

C. Congruent
Explanation
Congruent figures are identical in both size and shape. Therefore, when two figures are said to be congruent, it means that they have the same dimensions and angles, making them an exact match.

### Does the red line show a line of symmetry?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

A. Yes
Explanation
The red line shows a line of symmetry because if you fold the figure along that line, the two halves will perfectly match each other. This means that any point on one side of the line will have a corresponding point on the other side that is equidistant from the line. Thus, the figure exhibits symmetry.

### Does the dotted line show line of symmetry?

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

B. No
Explanation
The correct answer is "No" because a dotted line does not typically indicate a line of symmetry. A line of symmetry is a line that divides a shape into two identical halves, and it is usually represented by a solid line. Dotted lines are commonly used for other purposes, such as indicating a boundary or a path. Therefore, the presence of a dotted line does not imply the presence of a line of symmetry.
