3rd grade math hw help!

posted by on .

hello all,
my daughter come home with a math homework "Alphabet Polygons" I have no idea how to use the letters in the alphabet to answer the questions. Please HELP! The questions are as follow:

1) You can make polygons of some of the letters by drawing just one more line segment. Which letters are they?

2) With which letters can you make exactly 2 polygons by drawing 2 more line segments?

3) by drawing 3 more line segments, with what letters can you make 3 polygons?

4) Can you make 4 polygons by drawing 4 line segments with a letter? If yes, which letter?

I try to learn and understood of a polygons definition but I still do not know how to apply them using the alphabet. I am sorry, I just don't get it. Please help!

Thanks! :-(

    1. L can make a triangle out of L
    2. K can add two lines and make two triangles.
    Not sure on the rest

    Well I suppose if you draw a horizontal line under the upper case A you get two triangles, an upper one that is already there and a big one that includes the little one.
    If you draw a diagonal line from upper left to lower right of Z you get two triangles.
    If you surround X with horizontal and vertical lines connecting the corners, you get four triangles and the outer rectangle.
    You can do this with all the letters that are composed of straight lines I think, W E T etc

    A polygon is a closed figure made by connecting line segments, where each line segment end connects to only one end of two other line segments.

    A polygon is a plane figure with at least three straight sides and angles, and typically five or more.

    1. A,E,L,V
    2. F,H,L,M,N,W,Z
    3. I,K,T
    4. I,X,Y
    5. Polygons are 2-Dimensional shapes. They are made up of straight lines, and the shape is "closed". So, as per the polygon definition curved letters can not be polygons.

    1.) A E L V
    2.) F H T Z I N Y
    3.) K M W
    4.) X
    5.) Because the remaining letters has curves or are round. Polygons are made out of straight lines and not round
