## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Describe The Two Dimensional Figures That Result From Slicing Three Dimensional Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.7.G.A.3

What is the two dimensional shape that is created when the shape provided is sliced vertically?

Triangle

Trapezoid

Rectangle

Square

Triangle

Explanation:

A vertical cut is an up and down cut.

This shape is a right rectangular pyramid, which has a base of a rectangle and sides in the shape of triangles; thus,  a vertical cut would make a triangle.
