Geometry

Hi, I'm in Honors Geometry and I need a little help on this portfolio project. I know how to make the triangles but I'm not sure how to answer the questions.

SSS: Cut three pieces of string. Make each piece of string the length of one of the sides of the original triangle. Put the string together to form a triangle and trace the triangle on a separate piece of paper. Measure the angles of the triangle with your protractor.

Answer the following questions in your math journal:

Are the lengths of the sides and the measures of the angles of the triangle you created the same as the original triangle?
Rearrange the string to make a different triangle. Is there any way to create a triangle that has different angle measures?
SAS: Choose two sides of the original triangle. Cut two pieces of string and make each piece of string the length of one of those sides. Measure out the angles at both endpoints of the side that you chose. Draw the angles with the given measurements. Put the string together to form the sides of that angle and trace them. Draw in the third side of the triangle. Measure the third side that you drew and the two angles adjacent to that side.

Answer the following questions in your math journal:
Are the lengths of the sides and the measures of the angles of the triangle you created the same as the original triangle?
Draw the starting angle elsewhere on your paper and rearrange the string to make a different triangle. Is there any way to create a triangle whose third side has a different length?
ASA: Choose one side of the original triangle. Cut one piece of string and make the piece of string the length of that side. Trace the string on a separate sheet of paper. Measure out the angles at both endpoints of the side that you chose. Draw the angles with the given measurements. Extend the sides of the angles until they intersect and form a triangle. Measure the two sides that you drew and the angle between them.

Answer the following questions in your math journal:

Are the lengths of the sides and the measures of the angles of the triangle you created the same as the original triangle?
Rearrange the string and re-draw the two starting angles to make a different triangle. Is there any way to create a triangle that has different side lengths?

Thanks to anyone who can answer this!

  1. I'm sorry, I don't usually have to do this but I have a lot of issues right now and I'm struggling a bit.

    Okay, I think that the SSS triangle will always have the same angle measures because we know all three sides already.
    I'm not sure about the other two, I'm going to try figuring them out now.

  4. The points N(1,-6), O(3,0)N(1,−6),O(3,0), and P(9,-2)P(9,−2) form a triangle. Find the desired slopes and lengths, then fill in the words that characterize the triangle.
