Transformations

Hi, I need help with this transformation lesson. I'll post 5 at a time.

1. An angle changes in size as it undergoes a dilation.
A False
B True


2. A line segment usually decreases in size under contraction.
A False
B True


3. There can only be one obtuse angle in a triangle.
A False
B True


4. If a figure is reflected across the x-axis it is congruent to the original figure.
A False
B True


5. A figure derived from a previous figure by rotation, translation or dilation will be congruent to the original figure.
A False
B True


I think there are things in my story that have helped my creativity. Your father being killed, for instance, is one of the best things that could happen to a kid if he's going to write poetry or songs.

Re: Transformations

Hi;

1) A

2) I would say B.

3) B

4) B

5) A


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
