# Are you able to classify polygons by their sides and angles?

Yes because polygons have 3 or more sides.

### What regular polygons can be used to make a regular tesselations?

A regular polygon's angles are measured by the formula 180 * (n - 2) / n. Regular polygons will only tesselate if m * ( 180 * (n - 2) / n ) = 360, where m is an integer. Let's go through all the possible regular polygons. 3 sided polygon: m * ( 180 * 1 / 3 ) = 360 -> 60m=360 -> m=6, Able to tesselate 4 sided polygon: m * (…

### Can a acute triangle also be scalene?

Scalene means the triangle has 3 sides unequal length. Acute means the triangle has 3 acute angles (less than 90o). So you should be able to draw a scalene acute triangle pretty easily. An equilateral triangle has all sides the same length and all angles are 60o. If you stretch one side a little, and shrink another side a little you will have a scalene triangle. And as long as you haven't stretched or shrunk…

### What do you call a pentagon which has no reflective symmetery?

If all the sides and angles of a pentagon were equal, you would be able to put a mirror through the centre, and have the reflection be equal to the original image. This means that it would have reflective symmetry. If a pentagon does not have reflective symmetry, then it's angles and side lengths cannot all be the same. Thus, it is an irregular pentagon.

### What information do you need in order to prove the triangles congruent using congruence postulate?

You need enough information about both triangles to be able to compare any one of the following packages of parts of both of them: -- the length of any two sides and the size of the angle between them -- the size of any two angles and the length of the side between them -- the lengths of all three sides.

### When using a protractor a student measure the sum of the interior angles in a triangle and obtain 176 degrees what is the percent error of this measurement?

3 The student can measure the given angles to within 2 degrees of the actual measurement and identify each angle, with 95% accuracy 2 The student is able to measure the given angles to within 10 degrees, and is able to identify the angles with 95% accuracy 1 Student is unable to correctly measure the given angles and/or identify the angles correctly

### What is the picture of hecatommyriagon?

Although it is theoretically possible to draw one, the polygon might have to be close to planetary scale in order to distinguish it from a circle. Aside from needing almost perfectly smooth terrain on this imaginary planet, you would need to be able to construct sides whose angles were only 36 hundred- thousandths of a degree. You might need something on the order of the Hubble Space telescope to resolve those angles..

### What does a power polygon look like?

From what I have been able to find out (using my daughter's homework) is that "Power Polygons" are any "normal" polygon that can be combined with another "normal" polygon to form another, different looking polygon (a mega-polygon, I guess?)that you can then divide up so you can see the individual "Power Polygon" pieces. Perhaps the name "Power Polygons" is derived from the fact that these polygons have the power to create other polygons. Logically then…

### How do you find the angle measures of a trapezoid?

A trapezoid is a 4-sided shape, therefore the sum of the angles adds to 360 degrees. if you continue the lines until they touch you have a triangle, whose angles sum to 180 degrees. using the law of sines, the ratio of length of a side to the sine of the angle opposite of a triangle is consistent for all three sides. using the law of cosines you are able to find the angle between…

### Can a triangle have one acute angles?

nope. if it did, the two other ends wouldn't be able to meet with obtuse angles. A triangle must have two or three acute angles. A triangle always has interior angles that sum to 180 degrees. If a triangle had only one acute angle, the sum of its angles would be more than 180 degrees, which is not possible.

### What shapes are able to be tiled?

Squares or rectangles. Answer: Shapes which can be tiled (fit together without spaces or overlaps) are said to exhibit tessellation. These can be as simple as two dimensional shapes (squares and triangles) or as complex as the drawings by M.C. Escher who made tiles of birds and fishes. In general tiling shapes can be regular polygons (all the same) or mixtures of different shapes of regular polygons. More exotic shapes are developed by mathematicians. These…

### Why do scientist classify living things?

To be able to study all the living things in our universe, we need a way to group or classify them together. Scientists divided all things into living and non-living. Then they divided those (e.g. animal kindom and plant kingdom, then continued dividing them on how the items were seimilar or dissimilar).

### What is the taxonomy of thermophiles?

Thermophiles are a genus in the archaebacteria kingdom. To biologically classify them you must first find a specific species of thermopihile. Google "examples of thermophiles". Thermophile is usually the dubbed name for a bacteria the can thrive in extremely hot environments. Once you find a particular type you will be able to classify it. Hope this helps,

### Why some rhombuses are squares?

A rhombus is defined as being any parallelogram with four equal sides. A square is one such figure and has four 90ยบ angles. Every other rhombus will have two equal obtuse and two equal acute angles, until the figure becomes a straight line. You can envision this by making a rhombus out of four attached popsicle sticks in a square configuration and adjusting them until they become a straight line (or nearly so, since they…
