Geometry Midterm Exam 2 Name four rays shown.

ray xz, ray yz, ray xy and ray vz. 3 You live in Carson City, Nevada, which has approximate (latitude, longitude) coordinates of (39N, 120W). Your friend lives in Ottawa, Ohio, with coordinates of (41N, 84W). You plan to meet halfway between the two cities. Find the coordinates of the halfway point.

39+41 = 80 and 80/2 = 40 (-84 + -120)/2 = -204/2 = -102

so it would be 40n and -102w

4 Write the conditional statement that the Venn diagram illustrates.

if closed figures is squares then closed figures is quadrilaterals.

5 Is the following conditional true or false? If it is true, explain why. If it is false, give a counterexample. If it is snowing in Dallas, Texas, then it is snowing in the United States.

This is false becuase if it is snowing in one state does not mean it is snowing in the rest of the states now if u said, if it is snowing in san antonio texas than it is snowing at seaworld. This would be an accrate statment.

Geometry Midterm Exam 15 Li went for a mountain-bike ride in a relatively flat wooded area. She rode for 6 km in one direction and then turned and pedaled 16 km in another. Finally she turned in the direction of her starting point and rode 8 km. When she stopped, was it possible that Li was back at her starting point? Explain.

she went forward 6 then went 16 backwards witch would be -10 then she went 8 forward witch will put her at -2.so she will not be at the same place she started at.

16 Mei has a large triangular stone that she wants to divide into four smaller triangular stepping stones in a pathway. Explain why cutting along each midsegment creates four congruent stepping stones.

Each triangle has three midsegments and each is parallel to the third side. So by joining the midpoints you are cutting the triangle in equal parts.

17 Judging by appearance, classify the figure in as many ways as possible using rectangle, square, quadrilateral, parallelogram, rhombus.

parrallelogram, rhombus

Becuase the both are in a straight line.

Geometry Midterm Exam 19 Find the midpoint of each side of the trapezoid. Connect the midpoints. What is the most precise classification of the quadrilateral formed by connecting the midpoints of the sides of the trapezoid?

isosceles trapezoid.

20 Prove using coordinate geometry: If a point is on the perpendicular bisector of a segment, then it is equidistant from the endpoints of the segment.

Given: Line l is the perpendicular bisector of . Prove: Point R(a, b) is equidistant from points C and D.

the point C will be on the x-axis at say (-x1,0). point D will be an equal distance from the origin, but at (+x1,0) The perpendicular bisector of segment CD will go through the mid-point (0,0), and be 90ΒΊ to the x-axis.
