The following is a simple way to divided any triangle into n^2 congruent triangles (n > 1):

  1. Divide each side of the triangle into n equal parts,
  2. Select a pair of lines and join pairs of the above division marks with lines which will be parallel to the third side.
  3. Repeat step 2 with the other two pair of lines.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Divide a triangle into four congruent triangles?

Any plane triangle can be divided into four congruent triangles. Find the midpoint of each side, and draw a line from each midpoint to the other two midpoints. Forgive the crude ASCII graphics: <pre> + |\ + + | \ +-+-+ original triangle + |\ +-+ |\ |\ +-+-+ divided triangle + |\ +-+ each congruent triangle </ref>


How can you say that triangles are congruent?

If the hypotenuse and leg of a triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of another triangle are the triangles congruent?

yes


What are right triangle congruence theorems?

1.HyL Theorem (Hypotenuse-Leg) - if the hypotenuse and leg of one triangle is congruent to another triangle's hypotenuse and leg, then the triangles are congruent. 2.HyA (Hypotenuse-Angle) - if the hypotenuse and angle of one triangle is congruent to another triangle's hypotenuse and angle, then the triangles are congruent. 3.LL (Leg-Leg) if the 2 legs of one triangle is congruent to another triangle's 2 legs, then the triangles are congruent. 4.LA (Leg-Angle) if the angle and leg of one triangle is congruent to another triangle's angle and leg, then the triangles are congruent.

How do you describe triangles by the sides?

Scalene Triangle- a triangle with no congruent sides Isosceles Triangle- a triangle with two congruent sides Equilateral Triangle- a triangle with three congruent sides


What triangle has at least two congruent sides?

Isosceles Triangle Isosceles TriangleIsosceles triangles have at least 2 congruent sides, and equilateral triangles have all 3 sides equal. A scalene triangle has no congruent sides or angles. All triangles have 180 degrees total.An equilateral triangle has three congruent sides and an isosceles triangle has two congruent sides.


Does a triangle have 2 congruent sides?

Some, but not all. Triangles with 2 congruent sides are called isoceles triangles. Triangles with 3 congruent sides are called equilateral triangles.


What is the name of a triangle with atleast two sides congruent?

An Isosceles triangle has 2 equal sides. Scalene triangles have no congruent sides, and equilateral triangles have every side congruent.


What are congruent triangle?

Two triangles are congruent if their corresponding sides are equal in length, and their corresponding angles are equal in measure.


What are the four congruence theorems for a right triangle?

The four congruence theorem for right triangles are:- LL Congruence Theorem --> If the two legs of a right triangle is congruent to the corresponding two legs of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.- LA Congruence Theorem --> If a leg and an acute angle of a right triangles is congruent to the corresponding leg and acute angle of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.- HA Congruence Theorem --> If the hypotenuse and an acute angle of a right triangle is congruent to the corresponding hypotenuse and acute angle of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.- HL Congruence Theorem --> If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle is congruent to the corresponding hypotenuse and leg of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
