I can … reason about line segments and angles to classify triangles.

Look Back! Generalize What is true about all 7 triangles you sorted?

Answer :

**Essential Question**

How Can You Classify Triangles?

Visual Learning Bridge

Triangles can be classified by the line segments that make their sides.

Triangles can be classified by their angle measures.

**Convince Me!**

Be Precise Can a triangle have more than one obtuse angle? Explain.

Answer :

No

Explanation :

Because sum of angles in the triangle = 180 degree .

if one angle is obtuse angle that is 120 degrees .

then , other two angles will be 180 – 120 = 60 degrees .

that means a triangle can have only one obtuse angle .

**Another Example!**

The pattern follows the rule: right triangle, acute triangle, right triangle, acute triangle…. It also follows the rule: isosceles, scalene, scalene, isosceles, scalene…. Draw a triangle that could be next in the pattern and explain.

For the first rule, the next triangle is acute. For the second rule, it is scalene. So, the next triangle is an acute, scalene triangle. It can be the same as the second triangle in the pattern or it can be a different acute, scalene triangle.

**Guided Practice**

**Do You Understand?**

Question 1.

Is it possible to have an obtuse acute triangle? Explain.

Answer:

No, it is not possible

Explanation :

Because sum of angles in the triangle = 180 degree .

if one angle is obtuse angle that is 120 degrees .

then , other two angles will be 180 – 120 = 60 degrees .

that means a triangle can have only one obtuse angle .

Question 2.

Can a triangle have more than one right angle? If so, draw an example.

Answer:

No a triangle cannot have more than one right angle

Explanation :

As if there are 2 right angles the their sum will be 180° and the third angle will exceed the sum. … As the sum of all three angles is , the third angle would have to be zero resulting in a degenerate shape which is a line rather than a triangle.

Draw quadrilaterals that could be the next three in the pattern.

Answer:

Question 13.

**Critique Reasoning** Tia says every square is a rectangle, and every square is a rhombus, so every rectangle must be a rhombus. Do you agree? Explain.

Answer:

No, Every Rectangle is not a Rhombus .

Explanation :

A square is a quadrilateral with all 4 angles right angles and all 4 sides of same length.

So a square is a special kind of rectangle, it is one where all the sides have the same length. Thus every square is a rectangle because it is a quadrilateral with all 4 angles right angles.

- Can I improve other people’s thinking?

Look Back! Critique Reasoning Nathan answered another question. True or false: A triangle can have two right angles. Nathan says this is not possible. Do you agree or disagree? Explain.

Answer :

Because of the fact that the sum of the three interior angles of a triangle must be 180 degrees, a triangle could not have two right angles

**Essential Question**

How Can You Critique the Reasoning of Others?

Visual Learning Bridge

Abby gave the answer shown to the following question.

True or False? Every quadrilateral has at least one right angle.

Abby

True. Here are different quadrilaterals. They all have four sides and four right angles.

What is Abby’s reasoning to support her statement?

Abby drew quadrilaterals that have right angles.

How can I critique the reasoning of others?

I can

- ask questions about Abby’s reasoning
- look for flaws in her reasoning.
- decide whether all cases have been considered.

Here’s my thinking.

Abby’s reasoning has flaws.

She used only special kinds of quadrilaterals in her argument. For these special cases, the statement is true.

Here is a quadrilateral that has no right angles. It shows the statement is not true about every quadrilateral.

The statement is false.

Convince Me! Be Precise Would Abby’s reasoning be correct if the question was changed to: True or False? Some quadrilaterals have at least one right angle. Explain.

**Performance Task**

Dog Pen

Caleb is designing a dog pen for the animal shelter. He has 16 feet of fence, including the gate. His designs and explanation are shown. Critique Caleb’s reasoning.

Dog pens usually have right angles, so I just used rectangles.

Both my pens used 16 feet of fence. I think the square one is better, because it has more area.

Question 7.

**Reasoning** What quantities are given in the problem and what do the numbers mean?

Answer:

The Quantities given are the length and Breadth of the Rectangle pen and the side of the square .

the numbers help in calculating the Area .

Question 8.

**Critique Reasoning** What can you do to critique Caleb’s thinking?

Answer:

The two shapes are given Rectangle and Square with their respective Quantities .

The Area of Rectangle is smaller than the Rectangle of the Square .

The area of the Square is preferred because it has more area than Rectangle .

Question 9.

Be Precise Did Caleb correctly calculate the perimeter of each fence? Explain.

Answer:

No,

Explanation :

Length of Rectangle = 5 feet

Breadth of Rectangle = 2 feet

Perimeter of Rectangle = 2 ( Length + Breadth ) = 2 ( 5 + 2 ) = 2 ( 7 ) = 14 feets .

Side of Square = 4 feet .

Perimeter of Square = 4 ( Side ) = 4 ( 4 ) = 16 feets .

Question 10.

**Critique Reasoning** Does Caleb’s reasoning make sense? Explain.

Answer:

No,

Explanation :

As, perimeter and area are not calculated correctly .

Length of Rectangle = 5 feet

Breadth of Rectangle = 2 feet

Perimeter of Rectangle = 2 ( Length + Breadth ) = 2 ( 5 + 2 ) = 2 ( 7 ) = 14 feet .

Side of Square = 4 feet .

Perimeter of Square = 4 ( Side ) = 4 ( 4 ) = 16 feet .

Question 11.

Use the figures above to critique Derek’s statement.

Answer:

The First two triangles ( from left to Right )in the figure are Right triangle but the third triangle is a Equilateral Triangle .

Question 2.

What kinds of triangles NEVER have right angles?

Answer:

Since a right-angled triangle has one right angle, the other two angles are acute. Therefore, an obtuse-angled triangle can never have a right angle; and vice versa. The side opposite the obtuse angle in the triangle is the longest.

Any triangle that is not a right triangle is an oblique triangle. Solving an oblique triangle means finding the measurements of all three angles and all three sides.

### Topic 16 Assessment Practice

Question 1.

Of a parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, and trapezoid, which cannot describe a square? Explain.

Answer:

A square can be a rhombus, parallelogram, a rectangle do not have to be a Trapezoid .

Explanation:

A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all four sides being of equal length.

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides.

A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles and 2 parallel sides .

A square is a quadrilateral with four right angles and equal side lengths.

Where as a A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides.

it sides are not of different lengths .

Looking at the definitions, a square is already guaranteed to be a rhombus. Here are examples of each of the other shapes which are not rhombuses.

Question 6.

Are all intersecting lines perpendicular? Draw a picture to help explain your answer.

Answer:

Perpendicular lines are a particular case of intersecting lines when an angle between them is 90o.

Explanation:

Perpendicular lines always intersect each other, however, all intersecting lines are not always perpendicular to each other. The two main properties of perpendicular lines are: Perpendicular lines always meet or intersect each other. The angle between any two perpendicular lines is always equal to 90.

Question 7.

A four-sided figure with two pairs of parallel sides cannot be what type of quadrilateral? Explain.

Answer:

Trapezoids have only one pair of parallel sides; parallelograms have two pairs of parallel sides. A trapezoid can never be a parallelogram.

The correct answer is that all trapezoids are quadrilaterals. . Trapezoids are four-sided polygons, so they are all quadrilaterals.
