Hi,

I was wondering if my answers look correct

1- C

1. Draw a Cartesian Coordinate system for yourself, and then determine whether these sets of points form triangles

Set 1: (0,0), (1,1), (0,1)

Set 2: (-1, 0), (1,1), (3,2)

Set 3: (0,0), (5,0), (3,5)

A set 1 line segment, set 2 Triangle, set 3 line segment

Bset 1 Triangle, set 2 Triangle, set 3 line segment

Cset 1 Triangle, set 2 line segment, set 3 Triangle

Dset 1 line segment, set 2 line segment, set 3 line segment

E set 1 Triangle, set 2 line segment, set 3 line segment

F set 1 line segment, set 2 Triangle, set 3 Triangle

2-B

2. I have placed a square that is 2 units long on each side so that its sides are parallel to

the x- or y-axis, but it's center is right on the origin. What are the coordinates of the corners?

A (-1,-1), (1,-1), (-1,-1), (1,-1)

B(1,1), (1,-1), (-1,1), (-1,-1)

C(-1,-1), (-1,-1), (1,-1), (1,-1)

D(1,-1), (-1,1), (-1,-1), (-1,1)

E (-1,1), (-1,1), (-1,-1), (-1,-1)

F (1,1), (1,1), (1,1), (1,1)

3- E

3. What shape do these four points make? (Draw from one to the next in the order given,

and then draw from the last back to the first).

(0,-1), (1,1), (0,3), (-1,1)

A A pentagon

BAn octagon

C A triangle

DA square

E A rhombus

F A cube

4. D

4. Now do the same with this list, and describe the shape.

(0,-1), (0,3), (1,1), (-1,1)

A A square

BTwo acute angles that meet at the acute angles

CA triangle

DTwo right triangles that meet at the right angles

E A rhombus

F Two obtuse triangles that meet at the hypotenuse

What shape is created by the following points? (Do not connect these in order, just connect around the outside of the shape.)

5. C

5. (-1, 0), (2, 0), (2, 4), and (-1, 4)

A a rectangle

Ba square

Ca parallelogram

Da rhombus

E a triangle

F a line segment

E a triangle

F a parallelogram

8.F

8. (8, 5), (2, -3), (5, -3), and (5, 5)

A a parallelogram

Ba trapezoid

Ca square

Da rhombus

E a triangle

F a rectangle

9.A

9. (-5, 1), (2, 1), (2, -4), and (-13, -4)

A a trapezoid

B a line segment

C a square

D a rhombus

E a triangle

Hi;

1C is correct.

2 B is correct.

3 E is correct.

4 I get E. Those are the same points as in 3.
