## What are the sides of a triangle?

In a right triangle, the hypotenuse is the longest side, an “opposite” side is the one across from a given angle, and an “adjacent” side is next to a given angle. We use special words to describe the sides of right triangles.

## What 2 shapes can make a hexagon?

I put together 2 trapezoids to make a hexagon. It has 6 sides and 6 vertices. It has 2 equal parts.

## What shape can you make with two triangles?

Kite. A kite is made up of two isosceles triangles joined base to base.

## What 2 shapes make a square?

A convex quadrilateral is a square if and only if it is any one of the following:

• A rectangle with two adjacent equal sides.
• A rhombus with a right vertex angle.
• A rhombus with all angles equal.
• A parallelogram with one right vertex angle and two adjacent equal sides.

## What is the properties of a square?

Equilateral polygon

three angles

## How many shapes can you make from a square?

(There are actually nine different shapes, if you count the original square; see the diagram below, figure 4.)

35 different

## How many shapes can you make with 7 squares?

For seven squares you draw fourteen “alongs” and eight “downs.” The total number of matchsticks is 22. When drawing 25 squares, you draw 50 “alongs” and 26 “downs,” making the total number of matchsticks 76.

## Do two rectangles make a square?

In order for the five rectangles to form a square, their length to width ratio must be 3:2. Other than that, the rectangles can never make a square if they are facing different ways.

## How many squares do you need to make a rectangle?

Rectangles have 4 sides and 4 square corners.

## How do you turn a square into a rectangle?

Let the side of the square be L. Then the area of the resulting rectangle is given by (L + 0.1L)(L– 0.1L) = L2 – (0.1)2L2 = L2 – 0.01L2 = 99L2. Hence the change in area is a decrease of 1%.

## What shapes can make a rectangle?

You can put shapes together to make new shapes. 2 squares make a rectangle.
