Example Question #511 : Plane Geometry

On a number line, what is the length of a line that stretches from \dpi{100} -3 to \dpi{100} 13?

Possible Answers:

\dpi{100} 10

\dpi{100} 13

\dpi{100} 16

\dpi{100} 3

Correct answer:

\dpi{100} 16

Explanation:

\dpi{100} -3 is \dpi{100} 3 units to the left of zero on the number line.  \dpi{100} 13 is \dpi{100} 13 units to the right of zero on the number line.

The length of the line would then be \dpi{100} 13+ 3=16.

Example Question #1 : How To Find Symmetry Of A Line

Number_line_midpoint

 is the midpoint of the number line that extends from  to . What is the value of ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Find the average of the two endpoints to find their midpoint. To find the average of two numbers, add them together and divide by two.

Example Question #2 : How To Find Symmetry Of A Line

How many lines of symmetry does a square have?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A line of symmetry is the imaginary line that you draw through a shape so that you can fold the image over the line and have both halves match exactly. Any regular shape has as many lines of symmetry as it does sides. Since a square has four sides, the correct answer is 4!

Example Question #754 : Geometry

How many lines of symmetry does an octagon have?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A line of symmetry divides a shape into two equal and identical halves. Any regular shape has as many lines of symmetry as it does sides. Since octagons have eight sides, the correct answer is 8.

Example Question #1 : How To Find Symmetry Of A Line

How many lines of symmetry does a rectangle have?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

A line of symmetry is the imaginary line that you draw through a shape so that you can fold the image over the line and have both halves match exactly. Any regular shape has as many lines of symmetry as it does total sides. Since a rectangle has four sides, the correct answer is 4!
