Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many sides does a nonagon have? Only write the number.

    Explanation
    A nonagon is a polygon with nine sides.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many sides does an icosahedron have?     Only write the number.

    Explanation
    An icosahedron is a three-dimensional geometric shape that consists of 20 equilateral triangular faces. Therefore, the correct answer is 20.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    How many sides does a dodecagon have?

    Explanation
    A dodecagon is a polygon with twelve sides. The prefix "dodeca-" in Greek means twelve, so a dodecagon has twelve sides. Each side of a dodecagon is equal in length, and the interior angles add up to 1800 degrees.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How many angles of this shape are smaller than a right angle? Only write the number.

    Explanation
    There are 4 angles in the shape that are smaller than a right angle.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    How many angles of this shape are larger than a right angle? Only write the number.

    Explanation
    The shape in question has two angles that are larger than a right angle.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which shape am I? Circle the correct answer. I have 4 sides but I am not a square. My opposite angles are equal and not all sides are the same length. I have 2 pairs of parallel lines.

    • A.

      I am a rectangle.

    • B.

      I am a parallelogram.

    • C.

      I am a rhombus.

    Correct Answer
    B. I am a parallelogram.
    Explanation
    The shape described in the question has 4 sides, opposite angles that are equal, and not all sides are the same length. These characteristics match the definition of a parallelogram, which is a quadrilateral with opposite sides that are parallel and equal in length. Therefore, the correct answer is "I am a parallelogram."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The cross section of this shape is a

    • A.

      Rectangle

    • B.

      Square

    • C.

      An irregular shape

    • D.

      Triangle

    Correct Answer
    D. Triangle
    Explanation
    The given question asks for the cross section of a shape. A cross section is the shape formed when a solid object is cut by a plane. Since a triangle is a three-sided polygon, it is a possible shape for a cross section. Therefore, the correct answer is triangle.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Fill in the blank space. A polygon is a 2D (flat) shape with _______ or more straight sides. (Use a number.)

    Correct Answer
    3
    Explanation
    A polygon is a 2D shape with 3 or more straight sides. A polygon is defined as a closed figure with straight sides, and the minimum requirement for a shape to be considered a polygon is to have at least 3 sides. Therefore, the correct answer is 3.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    • opposite sides are parallel • all sides are of equal length • all 4 interior angles are right angles • if you draw in the diagonals, right angles are formed where they intersect I am a _____________________________

    Correct Answer
    square
    Explanation
    A square is a shape that has opposite sides that are parallel, meaning they never intersect. Additionally, all sides of a square are of equal length, which makes it a regular quadrilateral. Another defining characteristic of a square is that all four interior angles are right angles, meaning they measure 90 degrees. Lastly, if you draw in the diagonals of a square, they intersect at right angles, further confirming its shape. Therefore, based on the given characteristics, the shape described is a square.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    • all 4 sides are equal in length • opposite sides are parallel • 4 interior angles • opposite angles are equal • if you draw in the diagonals, right angles are formed where they intersect

    Correct Answer
    rhombus
    Explanation
    A rhombus is a quadrilateral with several defining characteristics. Firstly, all four sides of a rhombus are equal in length. Additionally, opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel to each other. A rhombus also has four interior angles. Furthermore, the opposite angles in a rhombus are equal. Lastly, if you draw in the diagonals of a rhombus, right angles are formed where they intersect. Therefore, based on these characteristics, the given shape can be identified as a rhombus.

    Correct Answer
    20
    Explanation
    A dodecahedron is a three-dimensional geometric shape that consists of 12 regular pentagonal faces. Each vertex of the dodecahedron is where three of these faces meet. Since each face has 5 vertices, there are a total of 20 vertices in a dodecahedron.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    This 3D  shape is a

    • A.

      Semi-circle

    • B.

      Half sphere

    • C.

      Hemisphere

    • D.

      Semisphere

    Correct Answer
    C. Hemisphere
    Explanation
    A hemisphere is a 3D shape that is formed by half of a sphere. It has a curved surface and a flat circular base. In this case, the shape described in the question is a hemisphere because it is stated that it is a "semi-circle" and "half sphere," both of which are terms commonly used to refer to a hemisphere. The other options, such as semicircle and semisphere, do not accurately describe a 3D shape and are not commonly used terms.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    How many more blocks would you need to add to make these blocks into a cube. The smallest number that would create a cube without moving any of the original blocks.

    • A.

      27

    • B.

      36

    • C.

      19

    • D.

      15

    Correct Answer
    C. 19
    Explanation
    To make these blocks into a cube without moving any of the original blocks, we need to find the difference between the number of blocks we have and the number of blocks needed to form a cube. In this case, we have 27 blocks, and a cube requires 3x3x3=27 blocks. Therefore, we need to add 19 more blocks to make these blocks into a cube.
