    What do we call a triangle with exactly two equal sides?

    • A.

      Equilateral Triangle

    • B.

      Scalene Triangle

    • C.

      Isosceles Triangle

    • D.

      Equilateral Triangle

    Correct Answer
    C. Isosceles Triangle
    Explanation
    An isosceles triangle is a triangle with exactly two equal sides. The other option, equilateral triangle, has all three sides equal. The option scalene triangle has no equal sides. Therefore, the correct answer is isosceles triangle.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What do we call a triangle that has all three sides of equal length?

    • A.

      Equilateral Triangle

    • B.

      Isosceles Triangle

    • C.

      Scalene Triangle

    • D.

      Right Triangle

    Correct Answer
    A. Equilateral Triangle
    Explanation
    An equilateral triangle is a triangle that has all three sides of equal length. This means that each side of the triangle is the same length, and all three angles are also equal, measuring 60 degrees. The other options, isosceles triangle, scalene triangle, and right triangle, do not meet the criteria of having all three sides of equal length.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    How many inches are in 4 feet?

    • A.

      12

    • B.

      16

    • D.

      48

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    There are 12 inches in 1 foot. Therefore, to find the number of inches in 4 feet, we multiply 12 by 4. This gives us 48 inches.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What do we call a triangle with no equal sides?

    • A.

      Right Triangle

    • B.

      Isosceles Triangle

    • C.

      Equilateral Triangle

    • D.

      Scalene Triangle

    Correct Answer
    D. Scalene Triangle
    Explanation
    A triangle with no equal sides is called a scalene triangle. In a scalene triangle, all three sides have different lengths. This is in contrast to an isosceles triangle, where two sides are equal, and an equilateral triangle, where all three sides are equal. A right triangle refers to a triangle that has one angle measuring 90 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is scalene triangle.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following numbers is a factor of 14?

    • A.

      3

    • B.

      7

  • 14. 

    What is 387,796 rounded to the nearest thousand?

    • A.

      390,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 50
    Explanation
    The least common multiple (LCM) is the smallest number that is a multiple of both 10 and 25. To find the LCM, we can list the multiples of both numbers and find the smallest common multiple. The multiples of 10 are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, ... and the multiples of 25 are 25, 50, 75, 100, ... The smallest common multiple of 10 and 25 is 50, so it is the least common multiple.
