In what shape/shapes are the sides all congruent?
Correct Answer
B. Rhombus
Explanation
A rhombus is the only shape among the options where all sides are congruent. In a rhombus, all four sides are equal in length, which means they are congruent. A rectangle also has congruent sides, but it is not the correct answer because not all rectangles have congruent sides. A parallelogram can have congruent opposite sides, but not necessarily all sides. A trapezoid does not have congruent sides, as it has at least one pair of parallel sides that are not congruent. Therefore, the correct answer is Rhombus.
15.
Medians exist in which of the following shape/shapes?
Correct Answer
B. Trapezoid
Explanation
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, medians exist in a trapezoid. However, medians do not exist in a parallelogram, rhombus, or square, as these shapes do not have sides that are divided into equal halves.
16.

In the parallelogram below, what is x?
Correct Answer
C. 34.75
Explanation
The given parallelogram has opposite sides that are equal in length. The longer side measures 139 units, and since the opposite side is also equal in length, it must also measure 139 units. The shorter side measures 119 units, and since the opposite side is also equal in length, it must also measure 119 units. The diagonal of the parallelogram divides it into two congruent triangles. Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can find the length of the diagonal. The diagonal squared is equal to the sum of the squares of the two sides. So, 139 squared plus 119 squared equals the diagonal squared. Solving for the diagonal, we find that it is approximately 175.74 units. Since the diagonal is divided into two equal parts by the x value, each part is half of the diagonal. Therefore, x is equal to half of the diagonal, which is approximately 87.87 units.

B. 77°
Explanation
The measure of angle C in a trapezoid is always equal to the measure of angle A, which is the angle opposite to angle C. Since angle A is given as 77°, it can be concluded that angle C is also 77°.
25.
In the trapezoid below, what is x if AD=14 and BC=7+2x?
Correct Answer
B. 3.5
Explanation
In a trapezoid, the parallel sides are called bases. In this case, AD and BC are the bases. Given that AD=14 and BC=7+2x, we can set up an equation to solve for x. We know that the bases of a trapezoid are parallel, so they must be equal in length. Therefore, we can set AD equal to BC and solve for x. 14=7+2x. Subtracting 7 from both sides gives us 7=2x. Dividing both sides by 2 gives us x=3.5. Therefore, the value of x is 3.5.

What is the equation for the area of a trapezoid?
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 calculates the area by taking the average of the lengths of the two parallel bases (b1 and b2) and multiplying it by the height (h) of the trapezoid. Since a trapezoid has two parallel sides and two non-parallel sides, this formula takes into account the difference in lengths of the bases and the height to accurately calculate the area.

The
rectangle shown below is 21 m long and 11 m wide. If four congruent triangles
are removed from the rectangle with x = 4 m, then what will be
the area of the remaining figure?
Correct Answer
199
Explanation
After removing the four congruent triangles, the remaining figure will be a rectangle with dimensions of 21 m and 11 m. The area of a rectangle is calculated by multiplying its length by its width. Therefore, the area of the remaining figure is 21 m * 11 m = 231 m². However, since the question asks for the area of the remaining figure after removing the triangles with a width of x = 4 m, we need to subtract the area of these triangles from the total area. Each triangle has a base of 4 m and a height of 11 m, so the area of each triangle is (1/2) * 4 m * 11 m = 22 m². Since there are four triangles, the total area of the triangles is 4 * 22 m² = 88 m². Therefore, the area of the remaining figure is 231 m² - 88 m² = 143 m².

What is measure of angle 1
if α =
36° and β = 84°?
Correct Answer
30
Explanation
Given that α = 36° and β = 84°, we need to find the measure of angle 1. To do this, we can use the fact that the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180°. Since angle α and angle β are already given, we can subtract their measures from 180° to find the measure of angle 1. Therefore, angle 1 = 180° - 36° - 84° = 60°. Hence, the measure of angle 1 is 60°.
