A parallelogram has sides of lengths 4 and 6 and an angle of 120 degrees. What is the area of the parallelogram? a) 8 √3 b) 12 √3 c) 18 √3 d) 24 √3 The area of a parallelogram can be found using the formula: Area = base × height Given the side lengths 4 and 6 and the angle of 120 degrees, we can find the height by using trigonometry: height = shorter_side × sin(angle) In this case, the shorter side is 4 and the angle is 120 degrees: height = 4 × sin(120) height = 4 × (√3 / 2) height = 2 √3 Now, we can find the area: Area = 6 × 2 √3 Area = 12 √3 The area of the parallelogram is 12 √3. The correct answer is B) 12 √3. 2 / 5 2. A right-angled triangle has legs of lengths 15 cm and 20 cm. What is the length of its hypotenuse? a) 20 b) 25 c) 30 d) 35 To find the length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle, we can use the Pythagorean theorem: a² + b² = c² where a and b are the lengths of the legs of the triangle, and c is the length of the hypotenuse. Given the lengths of the legs a = 15 cm and b = 20 cm, we have: 15² + 20² = c² 225 + 400 = c² 625 = c² Taking the square root of both sides: c = 25 So, the length of the hypotenuse is 25 cm. The correct answer is B) 25. 3 / 5 3. If the endpoints of the diameter of a circle are (-5, 2) and (3, -4), what is the radius of the circle? a) 2 b) 5 c) 10 d) 20 To find the radius of the circle, we first have to find the distance between the endpoints of the diameter. We can use the distance formula: d = √((x₂ - x₁)² + (y₂ - y₁)²) Given the endpoints of the diameter are (-5, 2) and (3, -4), we have: d = √((3 - (-5))² + (-4 - 2)²) d = √((8)² + (-6)²) d = √(64 + 36) d = √100 = 10 Since the distance between the endpoints of the diameter is the diameter, the radius is half of the distance: r = d / 2 r = 10 / 2 r = 5 So, the radius of the circle is 5. The correct answer is C) 5. 4 / 5 4. Two concentric circles share the same center, and the radius of the smaller circle is 6. If the area of the annulus (the region between the two circles) is 42π, what is the radius of the larger circle? a) √42 b) √78 c) √114 d) 12 Let r be the radius of the larger circle. The area of the annulus is the difference between the areas of the larger and the smaller circles. area_annulus = π(r²) - π(6²) 42π = π(r²) - 36π Adding 36π to both sides and factoring out π, we get: 78π = π(r²) Dividing both sides by π: 78 = r² Taking the square root of both sides: r = √78 So, the radius of the larger circle is √78. The correct answer is B) √78. 5 / 5 5. What are the coordinates of the midpoint of the line segment joining the points (8, 10) and (4, 2)? a) (4, 6) b) (10, 2) c) (6, 6) d) (8, 4) To find the coordinates of the midpoint (M) of a line segment with endpoints A(x₁, y₁) and B(x₂, y₂), use the midpoint formula: M = ((x₁ + x₂) / 2, (y₁ + y₂) / 2) Given the points (8, 10) and (4, 2), substitute the coordinates into the formula: M = ((8 + 4) / 2, (10 + 2) / 2) M = (12 / 2, 12 / 2) M = (6, 6) So, the coordinates of the midpoint are (6, 6). The correct answer is C) (6, 6). Your score is 0% Restart Quiz
