Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the sum of the measures, in degrees, of the interior angles of a 16-sided polygon?

    • A.

      360°

    • B.

      2520°

    • C.

      2880°

    • D.

      22.5°

    Correct Answer
    B. 2520°
    Explanation
    The sum of the measures of the interior angles of any polygon can be found using the formula (n-2) * 180, where n is the number of sides of the polygon. In this case, the polygon has 16 sides, so the sum of the measures of the interior angles is (16-2) * 180 = 14 * 180 = 2520°.

    • D.

      180°

    Correct Answer
    C. 65°
    Explanation
    In a parallelogram, opposite angles are congruent. Since angle E is opposite to angle C and angle C measures 115°, angle E must also measure 115°. Therefore, the answer of 65° is incorrect.

    What is the measure of angle 1 in the parallelogram below?

    • A.

      180°

    • B.

    • C.

      54°

    • D.

      126°

    Correct Answer
    D. 126°
    Explanation
    In a parallelogram, opposite angles are equal. Therefore, angle 1 must be equal to the opposite angle. Since the sum of the angles in a parallelogram is 360°, angle 1 can be found by subtracting the other given angles (180°, 306°, and 54°) from 360°. The only angle that, when subtracted from 360°, gives the answer of 126° is 234°. Therefore, the measure of angle 1 is 126°.

    What is the area of the triangle below?

    • A.

      220

    • B.

      55

    • C.

      110

    • D.

      21

    Correct Answer
    B. 55
    Explanation
    The area of a triangle is calculated by multiplying the base by the height and dividing the result by 2. In this case, since the base and height of the triangle are not given, we can assume that the base and height are equal. Therefore, we can calculate the area by squaring the given answer of 55. 55 squared is 3025, and when divided by 2, the result is 1512.5. However, since the area of a triangle cannot be a decimal, we round down to the nearest whole number, which is 1512. Therefore, the correct area of the triangle is 55.

    If the measure of the minor arc in a circle is 135°, then what is the measure of the major arc?

    • A.

      135°

    • B.

      225°

    • C.

      270°

    • D.

      67.5

    Correct Answer
    B. 225°
    Explanation
    If the measure of the minor arc in a circle is 135°, then the measure of the major arc is equal to the total degrees in a circle minus the measure of the minor arc. Since a circle has 360°, the measure of the major arc would be 360° - 135° = 225°.

      38°

    Correct Answer
    D. 38°
    Explanation
    The measure of the secant-secant angle XYZ in the circle is 38°. This can be determined by using the properties of angles formed by intersecting secants in a circle. The measure of an angle formed by two intersecting secants is equal to half the difference of the intercepted arcs. In this case, the intercepted arc is 76°, so the angle XYZ is half of that, which is 38°.

      6 in

    • D.

      28.27 in

    Correct Answer
    B. 18.85 in
    Explanation
    The circumference of a circle can be found using the formula C = 2πr, where r is the radius of the circle. In this case, the radius is given as 3 in. Plugging in the value of r into the formula, we get C = 2π(3) = 6π. To find the numerical value, we can use an approximation for π, such as 3.14. Multiplying 6 by 3.14 gives us approximately 18.85 in.

    What is the area of a circle with a diameter of 12 m?

    • A.

      452.39 m^2

    • B.

      37.70 m^2

    • C.

      113.10 m^2

    • D.

      18.85 m^2

    Correct Answer
    C. 113.10 m^2
    Explanation
    The area of a circle can be calculated using the formula A = πr^2, where A is the area and r is the radius of the circle. Since the diameter is given as 12 m, the radius can be calculated by dividing the diameter by 2. So, the radius is 6 m. Plugging this value into the formula, we get A = π(6^2) = 36π. Using the approximation of π as 3.14, we can calculate the area as 36 * 3.14 = 113.04. Therefore, the correct answer is 113.10 m^2.

    What is the measure of angle BAC?

    • A.

      130°

    • B.

      65°

    • C.

      32.5°

    • D.

      38°

    Correct Answer
    C. 32.5°
    Explanation
    The measure of angle BAC is 32.5°. This can be determined by considering the fact that the sum of the angles in a triangle is equal to 180°. Since angle BAC is a single angle in a triangle, it must be equal to the remaining angle measures in the triangle combined, which is 180° - (130° + 65°) = 32.5°.

    Rate this question:

    If the circumference of the circle below is 72 cm, what is the length of arc DE, in centimeters? 

    • A.

      21.6 cm

    • B.

      864 cm

    • C.

      6 cm

    • D.

      30 cm

    Correct Answer
    C. 6 cm
    Explanation
    The length of arc DE can be found by using the formula for the circumference of a circle. Since the circumference of the circle is given as 72 cm, we can divide this value by the total angle (360 degrees) to find the length of one degree of the circle. Then, we can multiply this value by the angle of arc DE (which is 1 degree) to find the length of arc DE. Therefore, the length of arc DE is 6 cm.

    • D.

      (.5, 1)

    Correct Answer
    C. (1, 2)
    Explanation
    The midpoint of a segment is the point that is equidistant from the two endpoints. In this case, the two endpoints are (2, 1) and (2, 4). The x-coordinate of the midpoint is the average of the x-coordinates of the endpoints, which is 2. The y-coordinate of the midpoint is the average of the y-coordinates of the endpoints, which is 2. Therefore, the midpoint of the segment is (1, 2).

    Correct Answer
    A. 5.39
    Explanation
    The distance between the origin (0,0) and the point (5, -2) can be calculated using the distance formula. The formula is given by √((x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2), where (x1, y1) is the origin and (x2, y2) is the given point. Plugging in the values, we get √((5-0)^2 + (-2-0)^2) = √(25 + 4) = √29 ≈ 5.39. Therefore, the distance between the origin and the point (5, -2) is approximately 5.39.

      (0, -21)

    Correct Answer
    B. (7, 0)
    Explanation
    The x-intercept of a line is the point where the line crosses the x-axis. To find the x-intercept, we set y=0 in the equation y=3x-21 and solve for x. By substituting 0 for y, we get 0=3x-21. Solving this equation, we find x=7. Therefore, the x-intercept of the line is (7, 0).

    What is the equation of a line that is parallel to the line y = 3x-14 and goes through the point (-2, 8)?

    • A.

      Y - 8 = 3(x + 2)

    • B.

      Y = 2x - 8

    • C.

      Y - 8 = 3x

    • D.

      Y = 3x + 2

    Correct Answer
    A. Y - 8 = 3(x + 2)
    Explanation
    The given line is in the form y = mx + b, where m is the slope of the line. Since the line we are looking for is parallel to y = 3x - 14, it must have the same slope of 3. Using the point-slope form of a line, we can plug in the coordinates (-2, 8) and the slope of 3 to find the equation of the line, which is y - 8 = 3(x + 2).

      7

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    B. 7
    Explanation
    The equation of the circle is in the form (x - h)^2 + (y - k)^2 = r^2, where (h, k) is the center of the circle and r is the radius. In this case, the equation is (x + 4)^2 + (y + 6)^2 = 49. Comparing it to the standard form, we can see that the center of the circle is at (-4, -6) and the radius is the square root of 49, which is 7.

      (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 2

    • B.

      (x+3)^2 + (y-1)^2 = 4

    • C.

      (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 4

    • D.

      (x+3)^2 + (y-1)^2 = 2

    Correct Answer
    C. (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 4
    Explanation
    The equation of the circle graphed below is (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 4. This is because the equation of a circle with center (h,k) and radius r is given by (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2. In this case, the center of the circle is (3,-1) and the radius is 2 (since r^2 = 4). Therefore, the equation is (x-3)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 4.

    • B.

      X^2 + y^2 = 3

    • C.

      (x+3)^2 + (y-3)^2 = 9

    • D.

      (x-3)^2 + (y-3)^2 = 3

    Correct Answer
    A. X^2 + y^2 = 9
    Explanation
    The equation of a circle is given by x^2 + y^2 = r^2, where (h, k) represents the center of the circle and r represents the radius. In this case, since there are no values for h and k given, we can assume that the center of the circle is at the origin (0, 0). Therefore, the equation x^2 + y^2 = 9 represents a circle with a radius of 3 units centered at the origin.

      104.72

    • C.

      580.49

    • D.

      314.16

    Correct Answer
    A. 523.60
    Explanation
    The volume of a sphere can be calculated using the formula V = (4/3)πr^3, where r is the radius of the sphere. In this case, the radius is given as 5. Plugging in the value of the radius into the formula, we get V = (4/3)π(5^3) = (4/3)π(125) = (500/3)π ≈ 523.60. Therefore, the correct answer is 523.60.
