answer : No it is not parallel
3.  Refer to the image at right. If angle 2 and angle 6 are both 70 degrees, are the lines parallel?
answer : No it is not parallel

#1, 2, 3    you need to state the angle relationship.... corresponding, alternate interior, same side interior.. etc.

scale factors here?
answer : 4 / 8 = 1/2

3 / 6 = 1/2 <-- this is my answer and its correct but I am suppose to find the other scale factor. what is it?

10.  A right triangle has a 90 degree angle, and an angle x. What will the measure of the third angle be?

#1    Correct, but how can you tell?

#2     Right, but again, how do you know?

#3     These ARE parallel... how do we know?

#7    Incorrect... show me how you would set these up to find the scale factors

#10    What is the sum of all angles?   How many do you know?  Subtract EVERYTHING you are given from the SUM of all... then simplify by combining like terms

I am going to list my answers to my geometry homework. The ones I have already answered I need to take the sqrt if there are any perfect squares. The three i left blank I did not know how to answer. I will put the teachers comment down below. Help please I've been stuck for awhile and it needs to be done fast.
11. √108

12. √576

13. question : a=7 and c=SQRT 85

14. √24

15. question :  a=1 and c=SQRT 2

16. √44

17. √784

18. √306

19. question :  a=6 and c=6(SQRT 2)

20. √23

The ones you have completed look good... just make sure that if the numbers you get are PERFECT SQUARES... go ahead and take the SQRT.

For #13, 15 and 19... see my previous feedback!!!

previous feedback :

Make sure that you always STATE the final answer... if you end up wth c2 = 4... then c=2  which is the SQRT of 4.  Since 4 is a perfect square, you can give it's actual sqrt.  IF you were to get something like c2 = 5... your answer would just be c=√5.  Since 5 is NOT a perfect square, just leave the answer as a sqrt

Also... make sure that you understand when you SQUARE a SQRT... the operations CANCEL each other out and leave ONLY the number from under the radical!

Ex... √5 2 = √5 * √5 = 5

ex 2.... (2√5)2 = 2*2*√5*√5 = 4*5 = 20

1. Refer to the image at the right. If angle 1 is 30 degrees, and angle 5 is 70 degrees, are the two lines
parallel? Explain.

1 should = 5 if they are parallel and had a transversel through them.

2. Refer to the image at right. If angle 2 is 30 degrees and angle 4 is 60 degrees, are the lines parallel?
Explain.

co-interior angles are supplementary and thus 6+4 should = 180. 30 and 60 obviously are
complementary, not supplementary.

3. Refer to the image at right. If angle 2 and angle 6 are both 70 degrees, are the lines parallel? Explain.
I have no clue what the answer is for this one.

5. What is the measure of the inner angle of a regular hexagon? Show your work (and be sure to explain
anything you deem necessary to make sure your work is clear.)

A. A hexagon has 6 sides.
180 x 6 = 1080
The sum of the angles of deviation is 360
SO
1080 360 = 720

6. What is the measure of the inner angle of a regular decagon? Show your work (and be sure to explain
anything you deem necessary to make sure your work is clear.)

A. A decagon has 10 sides.
180 x 10 = 1800
The sum of the angles of deviation is 360
SO
1800 360 = 1440

7. Polygon A has sides of 4, 3, 5, and 3. Polygon B has sides of 8, 6, 10, and 6. What are the two possible
scale factors here? Explain.

To get my scale factor, I will need to divide the two polygons. This is how I
will do it along with the answers for each number:
4 / 8 = 1/2
3 / 6 = 1/2
5 / 10 = 1/2
3 / 6 = 1/2
So now we know the scale factor is 1:2.

10. A right triangle has a 90 degree angle, and an angle x. What will the measure of the third angle be?
I believe the answer for this would be 90 x.

Teachers comments on my work :
#1-3    Now state whether or not the lines are parallel
#5-6    What is the measure of ONE angle?
#7    and what is the OTHER possible scale factor for these measurements?
#10    90x means 90*x...  that is incorrect... is there another relationship between 90 and x?

wait I times it by the same amount. would number 11 be 180?

So number 9 would be D.
7 + 10 > 16
10 + 16 > 7
16 + 7 > 10
