# MAP 5th Grade Math : Geometry

## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Geometry

What coordinate point is the green triangle on?

Explanation:

To find the location on a coordinate plane we first look at the -axis, which runs horizontal and then the -axis, which runs vertical. We write the point on the -axis first, followed by the point on the -axis.

The green triangle is over  on the -axis and up  on the -axis.

### Example Question #1 : Geometry

Starting at the coordinate point shown below, if you move up  and to the right , what is your new point?

Explanation:

The starting point is at . When we move up or down we are moving along the -axis. When we move to the right or left we are moving along the -axis.

Moving up the -axis and moving right on the -axis means addition.

Moving down the -axis and moving left on the axis means subtraction.

Because we are moving up , we can add  to our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the right  we can add  to our coordinate point.

### Example Question #2 : Geometry

What other shape can a parallelogram be classified as?

Square

Rectangle

Triangle
