Re: Geometry review
Whoops! Where did 'y' spring from ? I hope you mean x + x  35 = 90.

Re: Geometry review
yup I mean x So x is the large than the small angle is x35
So x+x35=90
x+x= 2x
35+2x=90 (35) (35)
2x=125
x = 62.5
So the measure of the larger angle is 62.5

Re: Geometry review
Yes. In the question post (#23) you had 62.2 I assume a typo.

Re: Geometry review
I choose D because I didn't read the question correctly ammm but can I use the distance formula to get the answer ?
3. In the figure shown, line segment AC = CE , D is the midpoint of CE , DE=5, and BC=2 . What is the measure of AB ?
A 5 B7 C8 D10

Re: Geometry review
hi zeef
I've remade the diagram with two extras: (i) I've put on the given distances; (ii) I've put a pointer to the midpoints.
You see, if AC = CE, then C is the midpoint of AE, and D is the midpoint of CE.
So start with DE = 5, and work out CE. From that answer work out AC.
Then use BC = 2 to finish the problem.

Re: Geometry review
DE = 5 and I know that DE is half of CE So CE would equal CD*2 So CE=10
DE=5 CD=5 CE= 10 AC= 10 So AE= 20

Re: Geometry review
If I say the distance from B to c is 2 then AB would be 102=8

Re: Geometry review
Correct. Well done.
Did you find my diagram helpful?
When I get one of your questions, the first thing I do is to make a diagram to show the problem.
Give it a try.

Re: Geometry review
Yeah I sure did I drew it on my note book then found out how easy the question was I sure will try it next time
I corrected the following : I choose D and it was incorrect now I choose C
because adjacent angles are supplementary AD = EH FG=BC
So A= x b = 180  x
So D is X F= 180x
So the angles are supplementary because they add up to 180 4. Which statement about angle 1 and 2 must be true?
A angle 1 is congruent to angle 2 B 1 is the complement of angle 2 C angle 1 is the supplement of angle 2 D Angle 1 and 2 are vertical angles

Re: Geometry review
I choose A and it was incorrect still confused
Ok so Obtuse Triangle has an angle that is more than 90° So that means only one angle is more than 90° and an isosceles triangle has two equal sides and two equal angles. So am thinking the last picture
5. Which triangle is an obtuse isosceles triangle?

Re: Geometry review
Ok first I choose B
My correction is : area = (½)(apothem)(perimeter)
1/2 * 3.8 * 48 = 91.2
6. Calculate the area of the regular octagon shown.
A 21.9 square meters B48.0 square meters C91.2 square meters D350.4 square meters

11. Which is the contrapositive of the following statement? If quadrilateral ABCD is a rectangle, then quadrilateral ABCD is a square.
A If quadrilateral ABCD is a square, then quadrilateral ABCD is a rectangle. B If quadrilateral ABCD is not a square, then quadrilateral ABCD is not a rectangle. C If quadrilateral ABCD is not a rectangle, then quadrilateral ABCD is not a square. D If quadrilateral ABCD is not a square, then quadrilateral ABCD is a rectangle.

Re: Geometry review
hi zeef
Q6. 91.2 That's what I get too.
Q11. Structure for a contrapositive:
If <statement A>, then <statement B> becomes if <NOT statement B>, then <NOT statement A>.
So both statements collect a NOT, and the order of statements is reversed.
The two versions are logically the same; because if B is NOT true, then A cannot be either (as A true implies B true).

Re: Geometry review
I thought you meant reverse the statements
So B is the answer

Re: Geometry review
8. Select which statement is true about the relationship between the measures of angle A and angle B in the diagram shown.
A The measure of angle A is greater than the measure of angle B . B The measure of angle B is greater than the measure of angle A. C The measure of angle A is equal to the measure of angle B . D Cannot be determined without any other calculations.
#8 Ok so I first choose B but I still see that my answer is correct
because the measure of the missing angle would 2.38 Then I use cosine= A/H 9/11 = 0.82 cos¹ = 34.92
So that is angle A 90+34.92=124.92 So angle B = 180  124.92 = 55.08
A= 34.92 B= 55.08 C= 90

Re: Geometry review
Q8. Sorry. B is correct. What I was trying to say is you could have got to the answer more quickly. But it doesn't matter. Correct is correct however you get there.
Q16. Not B.
You need to imagine the curved surface 'unwrapped' so that you have a rectangle.
height = 16 length = circumference of the circle = pi times D area = height x circumference.
