Math please help !!!!!!!!

1. similar polygons are .... different shapes.

1.always
2.sometimes
3.never

2. how many lines of symmetry could an isosceles trapezoid have?

1. 0
2. 1
3. 2
4. 3

I'm from connexus and I'm taking the tools of geometry math test .

  1. #1 if the polygons are similar, they have equal angles. So, they must have the same number of sides as well...

    #2 Did you draw such a shape?
    It has no horizontal lines of symmetry, since the bases are of different lengths.

    How many ways can you fold it so it folds just in half?

  2. so that means sometimes?

    and no I didn't think if that but ill try it

  3. #1 means always. A triangle cannot be similar to a rectangle. A pentagon cannot be similar to a kite.

    Looks like you need to review what "similar" means, geometrically.

    #2 By this time you have probably figured out that there is only one line of symmetry, just as with an isosceles triangle. In fact, a triangle is just a trapezoid with a top base of length zero.

  5. Ouch! Similar polygons are never different shapes.

    They are always the same shape.

    As usual, read the question carefully before choosing an answer.
