    • C.

      720

    • D.

      1080

    Correct Answer
    C. 720
    Explanation
    A hexagon has 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, (6-2) * 180 = 4 * 180 = 720. Therefore, the sum of the interior angles of a hexagon is 720.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

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

    • A.

      51.43°

    • B.

      360°

    • C.

      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 360° (the sum of all exterior angles in any polygon) by the number of sides, which in this case is 7. Therefore, each exterior angle of a regular heptagon measures 51.43°.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    How many sides does a regular polygon have if each exterior angle is 22.5°?

    • A.

      15

    • B.

      12

    • C.

      17

    • D.

      16

    Correct Answer
    D. 16
    Explanation
    A regular polygon has equal angles and equal sides. In this case, each exterior angle is given as 22.5°. To find the number of sides, we can use the formula for the exterior angle of a regular polygon: 360° divided by the number of sides. By setting up the equation 360°/x = 22.5°, we can solve for x. Dividing 360° by 22.5° gives us 16, so the regular polygon has 16 sides.

    The diagonals in all parallelograms bisect each other.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a parallelogram, the diagonals are line segments that connect opposite vertices. Since a parallelogram has two pairs of opposite sides that are parallel, the diagonals will intersect at their midpoints. This means that the diagonals bisect each other, dividing each other into two equal parts. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    In a rhombus, the diagonals bisect the angles.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a rhombus, the diagonals bisect the angles because a rhombus is a special type of parallelogram where all sides are equal in length. The diagonals of a rhombus intersect at right angles, dividing the rhombus into four congruent right triangles. Since the opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel, the diagonals bisect the angles formed by the sides, creating two congruent angles at each vertex. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The diagonals in all parallelograms are congruent.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The diagonals in all parallelograms are not congruent. In a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other, meaning they divide each other into two congruent segments. However, the diagonals themselves are not necessarily congruent.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The legs in a trapezoid are always congurent.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the legs in a trapezoid are not always congruent. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides, and the legs refer to the non-parallel sides. In most cases, the legs of a trapezoid have different lengths, making them non-congruent. However, there are special cases where the legs can be congruent, such as when the trapezoid is an isosceles trapezoid with congruent base angles.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    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 equation is derived from the fact that the sum of the interior angles of any polygon can be found by subtracting 2 from the number of sides (n) and then multiplying the result by 180. This formula holds true for all polygons, regardless of the number of sides.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Consecutive angels in a parallelogram are ___.

    • A.

      Congruent

    • B.

      Complimentary

    • C.

      Supplementary

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Supplementary
    Explanation
    Consecutive angles in a parallelogram are supplementary. This means that the sum of the measures of two consecutive angles in a parallelogram is always 180 degrees. This property holds true for all parallelograms, regardless of their size or shape. Therefore, the correct answer is "supplementary".

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What is the measure of angle 2 in the isosceles trapezoid below?

    • A.

      123°

    • B.

      57°

    • C.

      33°

    • D.

      180°

    Correct Answer
    A. 123°
    Explanation
    In an isosceles trapezoid, the base angles (angles opposite the parallel sides) are congruent. Since angle 2 is opposite the longer base, it must be congruent to the other base angle, which measures 123°. Therefore, the measure of angle 2 in the isosceles trapezoid is 123°.

The diagonals of a kite are also perpendicular to each other. This definition fits the given description, as a kite has exactly two pairs of adjacent congruent sides. Therefore, the correct answer is kite.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    A____________________ is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.

    Correct Answer
    trapezoid
    Explanation
    A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. In a trapezoid, the parallel sides are called the bases, and the non-parallel sides are called the legs. The parallel sides can be of any length or orientation, as long as they are parallel to each other. The other two sides of the trapezoid may or may not be equal in length. The angles formed by the legs and the bases can vary, but the sum of the interior angles of a trapezoid is always 360 degrees.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Base angles of an isosceles trapezoid are:

    Correct Answer
    congruent
    Explanation
    In an isosceles trapezoid, the base angles are congruent. This means that the angles formed by the non-parallel sides and the bases are equal in measure. Since the trapezoid has two parallel sides and two non-parallel sides, the base angles on each side are equal. This property is a characteristic of an isosceles trapezoid and helps to identify and distinguish it from other types of trapezoids.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, the the quadrilateral is a ____________________________

    Correct Answer
    parallelogram
    Explanation
    If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, it means that the lengths of the opposite sides are equal. This is a property of parallelograms, where opposite sides are parallel and congruent. Therefore, if a quadrilateral has congruent opposite sides, it must be a parallelogram.
