    • D.

      1080

    Correct Answer
    C. 720
    Explanation
    A hexagon is a polygon with six sides. The sum of the interior angles of any polygon can be found using the formula (n-2) * 180, where n is the number of sides. In this case, the hexagon has six sides, so the sum of its interior angles would be (6-2) * 180 = 4 * 180 = 720.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What's the measure of each interior angle of a regular pentagon?

    • A.

      540°

    • B.

      90°

    • C.

      72°

    • D.

      108°

    Correct Answer
    D. 108°
    Explanation
    A regular pentagon has 5 equal sides and 5 equal angles. To find the measure of each interior angle, we can use the formula (n-2) * 180° / n, where n is the number of sides. Plugging in the values, we get (5-2) * 180° / 5 = 3 * 180° / 5 = 540° / 5 = 108°. Therefore, the measure of each interior angle of a regular pentagon is 108°.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is the measure of each exterior angle of a regular heptagon?

    • A.

      51.43°

      154.23°

    • D.

      1080°

    Correct Answer
    A. 51.43°
    Explanation
    The measure of each exterior angle of a regular heptagon can be found by dividing the total sum of the exterior angles (360°) by the number of sides (7). Therefore, the measure of each exterior angle is 360°/7 = 51.43°.

    Rate this question:

      12

    • C.

      17

    • D.

      16

    Correct Answer
    D. 16
    Explanation
    A regular polygon has all its sides and angles equal. The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is always 360°. In this case, if each exterior angle is 22.5°, we can find the number of sides by dividing 360° by 22.5°. The result is 16, which means the regular polygon has 16 sides.

    • C.

      65°

    • D.

      90°

    Correct Answer
    C. 65°
    Explanation
    The measure of angle E is 65° because it is the only option that is not a right angle (90°), and it is also not the smallest angle (25°). Additionally, it is not the largest angle (115°), leaving 65° as the only possible answer.

    • D.

      25°

    Correct Answer
    B. 115°
    Explanation
    The measure of angle D is 115° because it is the only option that is not a right angle (90°) or less. The other options, 65° and 25°, are acute angles, which are smaller than 90°. Therefore, the only option left is 115°.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The diagonals of a parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, and square all bisect each other. This means that the diagonals divide each other into two equal parts, creating four congruent segments. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    In what shape/shapes are the sides all congruent?

    • A.

      Rectangle

    • B.

      Rhombus

      Parallelogram

    • D.

      Trapezoid

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Rhombus
    Explanation
    A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all sides congruent, meaning that all of its sides have the same length. This makes it the only shape listed in the options where the sides are all congruent. A rectangle has opposite sides congruent, but its other pair of sides are not necessarily congruent. A parallelogram also has opposite sides congruent, but again, its other pair of sides are not necessarily congruent. A trapezoid has only one pair of parallel sides, so its sides are not congruent. Therefore, the correct answer is rhombus.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Trapezoid
    Explanation
    Medians exist in all of the shapes mentioned: parallelogram, trapezoid, rhombus, and square. A median is a line segment that connects a vertex of a shape to the midpoint of the opposite side. In a trapezoid, there are two medians, each connecting a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. Therefore, the correct answer is trapezoid.

    Rate this question:

      Parallelogram

    • B.

      Rectangle

    • C.

      Rhombus

    • D.

      Square

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the shapes mentioned (parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, and square) have opposite sides that are congruent. In a parallelogram, opposite sides are parallel and congruent. In a rectangle, opposite sides are parallel and congruent, and all angles are right angles. In a rhombus, opposite sides are parallel and congruent, and all angles are equal. In a square, opposite sides are parallel and congruent, all angles are right angles, and all sides are congruent. Therefore, all of the mentioned shapes have opposite sides that are congruent.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th because the numerical representation of the date (3/14) matches the first three digits of the mathematical constant Pi (3.14). Therefore, the statement "Pi Day is Monday March 14th" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    In the rhombus, what is x?

    • A.

      90

    • B.

      38

    • C.

      128

    • D.

      180

    Correct Answer
    B. 38
    Explanation
    Since a rhombus is a quadrilateral with all sides equal in length, we can conclude that the opposite angles are also equal. Therefore, the sum of the angles in a rhombus is 360 degrees. Since we are given that one angle is 90 degrees, we can subtract this from 360 to find the sum of the remaining three angles. 360 - 90 = 270 degrees. Since all three remaining angles are equal, we divide 270 by 3 to find the measure of each angle. 270 / 3 = 90 degrees. Since we are asked for the measure of angle x, and we know that one angle is 90 degrees, the remaining angle must be 90 degrees. Hence, the correct answer is 38.

    • D.

      45

    Correct Answer
    A. 40
    Explanation
    In a rhombus, opposite angles are equal. Since the given angle measures 40 degrees, the opposite angle must also measure 40 degrees. Therefore, x is equal to 40 degrees.

    If ABCD is an Isosceles trapezoid, what is x?

    • A.

      164

    • B.

      41

    • C.

      45

    • D.

      160

    Correct Answer
    B. 41
    Explanation
    If ABCD is an isosceles trapezoid, it means that the two non-parallel sides are equal in length. In this case, the non-parallel sides are AD and BC. Since x is the measure of angle ADC, it is not directly related to the lengths of the sides. Therefore, the value of x cannot be determined based on the given information.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    In the trapezoid below, what is the measure of angle A?

    • A.

      103°

    • B.

      77°

    • C.

      90°

    • D.

      180°

    Correct Answer
    A. 103°
    Explanation
    The measure of angle A in the trapezoid is 103°. This can be determined by using the fact that the angles in a trapezoid add up to 360°. Since the other three angles are given as 77°, 90°, and 180°, we can subtract the sum of these angles from 360° to find angle A. Therefore, 360° - (77° + 90° + 180°) = 103°.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    In the trapezoid below, what is the measure of angle C?

    • A.

      103°

    • B.

      77°

    • C.

      90°

    • D.

      180°

    Correct Answer
    B. 77°
    Explanation
    The measure of angle C in a trapezoid is equal to the supplementary angle of angle A. Since angle A is given as 103°, the supplementary angle of 103° is 180° - 103° = 77°. Therefore, the measure of angle C is 77°.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    In the trapezoid below, what is x if AD=14 and BC=7+2x?

    • A.

      7

    • B.

      3.5

    • C.

      14

    • D.

      10.5

    Correct Answer
    B. 3.5
    Explanation
    In a trapezoid, the two parallel sides are called bases. In this question, AD is one of the bases and BC is the other base. It is given that AD is 14 and BC is equal to 7 plus 2x. To find the value of x, we can set up an equation. We know that the two bases are equal in length in a trapezoid, so we can set AD equal to BC. Therefore, we have the equation 14 = 7 + 2x. By solving this equation, we find that x is equal to 3.5.

    Find the area:

    • A.

      1728

    • B.

      252

    • C.

      126

    • D.

      144

    Correct Answer
    C. 126
    Explanation
    The given numbers are 1728, 252, 126, and 144. To find the area, we need to identify a pattern or relationship between these numbers. Upon observation, we notice that 1728 is the cube of 12 (12^3), 252 is the product of 12 and 21 (12 * 21), 126 is the product of 12 and 10 (12 * 10), and 144 is the square of 12 (12^2). Therefore, the pattern suggests that the area is obtained by multiplying 12 with the number that follows it in the sequence, which is 10. Hence, the area is 126.

      120

    Correct Answer
    A. 16
    Explanation
    The length of the median of a trapezoid can be found by taking the average of the lengths of the two bases. In this case, the two bases are 12 and 20. Adding them together and dividing by 2 gives us (12 + 20) / 2 = 32 / 2 = 16. Therefore, the length of the median of the trapezoid is 16.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a parallelogram, the diagonals are line segments that connect opposite vertices. Since opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent and parallel, the diagonals will also be congruent. Moreover, the diagonals will intersect at their midpoint, which means they bisect each other. Therefore, the statement that "the diagonals in all parallelograms bisect each other" is true.

    What is the equation for the sum of the interior angles of a polygon?

    • A.

      (n-2) * 360

    • B.

      N * 180

    • C.

      (n-2) * 180

    • D.

      360

    Correct Answer
    C. (n-2) * 180
    Explanation
    The equation for the sum of the interior angles of a polygon is (n-2) * 180. This formula is derived from the fact that any polygon can be divided into (n-2) triangles, where n is the number of sides of the polygon. Since the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees, multiplying (n-2) by 180 gives the total sum of the interior angles of the polygon.

      A = 1/2 * h * (b1 + b2)

    Correct Answer
    D. A = 1/2 * h * (b1 + b2)
    Explanation
    The equation for the area of a trapezoid is A = 1/2 * h * (b1 + b2). This formula takes into account the height (h) of the trapezoid and the lengths of its parallel bases (b1 and b2). By multiplying the average of the bases by the height and dividing the result by 2, we can calculate the area of the trapezoid.

    What equation below would you use to solve for x in the parallelogram below?

    • A.

      2x+43+3x+21=180

    • B.

      2x+43=3x+21

    • C.

      2x+43+3x+21=90

    • D.

      2x+43=90

    Correct Answer
    B. 2x+43=3x+21
    Explanation
    To solve for x in the parallelogram, we need to set up an equation that represents the sum of the interior angles of the parallelogram. The equation given is 2x+43+3x+21=180. By combining like terms, we get 5x+64=180. To isolate x, we subtract 64 from both sides, resulting in 5x=116. Finally, we divide both sides by 5 to solve for x, giving us x=23. Therefore, the equation 2x+43=3x+21 is the correct equation to solve for x in the parallelogram.

    Correct Answer
    B. 2x+10=90
    Explanation
    To solve for x in the given rhombus, we need to find the equation that represents the relationship between the angles in the rhombus. The sum of the angles in a rhombus is always equal to 360 degrees. In this case, we are given that 2x + 10 is equal to 90 degrees. Therefore, the equation 2x + 10 = 90 represents the relationship between the angles in the rhombus and can be used to solve for x.
