What is an acute angle?
Correct Answer
C. An angle that is less than 90 degrees
Explanation
An acute angle is defined as an angle that measures less than 90 degrees. This means that the angle is smaller than a right angle, which measures exactly 90 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is "An angle that is less than 90 degrees."
10.
What is an obtuse angle?
Correct Answer
A. An angle that is more than 90 degrees
Explanation
An obtuse angle is defined as an angle that is greater than 90 degrees. In other words, it is an angle that is wider or "more open" than a right angle, which measures exactly 90 degrees. An obtuse angle can range from slightly greater than 90 degrees to almost 180 degrees, but it cannot be equal to or less than 90 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is "An angle that is more than 90 degrees."
11.
What is another name for a 90 degree angle?
Correct Answer
D. A right angle
Explanation
A right angle is another name for a 90 degree angle. In geometry, a right angle is formed when two lines or line segments intersect at a 90 degree angle, creating a square corner. It is called a right angle because it is the "correct" or "right" angle in terms of its measure.
12.
What is the measure of the angle labeled x?
Correct Answer
D. 75 degrees
Explanation
The measure of the angle labeled x is 75 degrees. This can be determined by observing that the angle is not a right angle (90 degrees) or a straight angle (180 degrees). It is also not stated that the angle is supplementary to any other angle, so it cannot be determined to be 180 degrees. Therefore, the only remaining option is 75 degrees.
13.
Polygon A is a square. Polygon B has four more sides than Polygon A. What type of polygon is Polygon B?
Correct Answer
A. Octagon
Explanation
Polygon A is a square, which means it has four sides. The question states that Polygon B has four more sides than Polygon A. Since Polygon A has four sides, Polygon B must have four more sides than that, making it an octagon.
14.
If a and b are parallel lines and angle 4 = 45 degrees, what is the measure of angle 7?
Correct Answer
A. 135 degrees
Explanation
Since a and b are parallel lines, angle 4 and angle 7 are corresponding angles. Corresponding angles are congruent when the lines are parallel. Therefore, if angle 4 is 45 degrees, angle 7 must also be 45 degrees.
15.

regular
Explanation
A regular polygon is a polygon in which all sides are the same length and all angles are the same measure. This means that all the sides of the polygon have equal lengths and all the angles of the polygon have equal measures. In other words, a regular polygon is a symmetrical shape with uniform sides and angles.
19.
Lines that are on the same plane and never meet or intersect are called perpendicular lines.
Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
Perpendicular lines are not lines that are on the same plane and never meet or intersect. Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a 90-degree angle. Therefore, the statement is false.
20.
In which figure is angle DEF equal to 90 degrees?
Correct Answer
C. Figure 3
Explanation
In Figure 3, angle DEF is equal to 90 degrees because it forms a right angle. A right angle is a 90-degree angle, formed when two lines or line segments intersect. The other figures do not show a right angle at angle DEF, making Figure 3 the correct answer.
21.
In which figure is angle DEF equal to 180 degrees?
Correct Answer
B. Figure 2
Explanation
In Figure 2, angle DEF is equal to 180 degrees because it is a straight line. In geometry, a straight line forms an angle of 180 degrees, which means that the angle spans the entire length of the line. Therefore, Figure 2 is the correct answer as it shows angle DEF as a straight line.

A shapre that looks the same when it is rotated less than a full turn has ___________________________________.
Correct Answer
A. Rotation symmetry
Explanation
A shape that looks the same when it is rotated less than a full turn has rotation symmetry. This means that the shape can be rotated by a certain angle (less than 360 degrees) and still maintain its original appearance. The presence of rotation symmetry indicates that the shape has a balanced and harmonious design, allowing it to be visually appealing from different angles of rotation.

The angle sum of any triangle is _______________ degrees.
Correct Answer
180
Explanation
The angle sum of any triangle is always 180 degrees. This is a fundamental property of triangles in Euclidean geometry. The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is always equal to 180 degrees, regardless of the size or shape of the triangle. This property can be proven using various geometric theorems and principles.
27.
The angle sum of any quadrilateral is _______________ degrees.
Correct Answer
360
Explanation
The angle sum of any quadrilateral is always 360 degrees. This is because a quadrilateral has four sides, and the sum of the interior angles of any polygon is given by the formula (n-2) * 180 degrees, where n is the number of sides. Therefore, for a quadrilateral with four sides, the sum of the interior angles is (4-2) * 180 = 360 degrees.
28.
Which is the correct formula for finding the angle sum of any polygon?
Correct Answer
C. (# of sides - 2) x 180 = angle sum
Explanation
The correct formula for finding the angle sum of any polygon is (# of sides - 2) x 180 = angle sum. This formula is derived from the fact that the sum of the interior angles of a polygon is equal to (n-2) times 180 degrees, where n is the number of sides of the polygon. By subtracting 2 from the number of sides and multiplying by 180, we can find the total angle sum of the polygon.
