No you cannot.

A regular pentagon has no parallel lines, but you can create an irregular pentagon with one pair of parallel lines if you make a traditional 'house' shape with parallel 'walls'.

A pentagon is a 5 sided polygon.

A polygon is a closed plane figure consisting of straight lines. So a square is a polygon, a pentagon is a polygon. Just draw any closed figure with straight lines and you have a polygon.

yes because you can draw a pentagon and devide it

The Pentagon has 5 lines of symmetry quite simply, actually. See, say you made one line straight through the pentagon at every vertex, right? Well, once you do that, you have 3 lines of symmetry in total, right? Now, say you make another 2 lines of symmetry, this time right through the center of each side. In total, this would make 5.

Some people make the mistake of thinking a square has 8 lines of symmetry, however it actually has 4 lines of symmetry. An equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry.

Yes. Just make the sides each different lengths to make it irregular.

To create an equilateral pentagon with exaclty 1 right angle, you must # Create a dotted line of symmetry down the page. # Then create two lines that are exactly 3cm in length so that they form a right angle. This right angle must have exaclty 45o of it on each side of the dotted line. # Off these newly created lines extend another two lines of exactly 3cm so that the angles created are exaclty 120o each # Now draw a straight line through the dotted line of symmetry to connect the second set of 3cm lines together # The newly created pentagon should look like a house, that widens as it comes up to the roof and then comes into a point at the top. To insure that the pentagon is correct - Add all angles together and make sure that they equal 540o - Measure each line so that they are all exaclty 3cm - Make sure that the angles are as follows, 105-120-90-120-105 - You have now created a SERP - an equilateral pentagon that has a line of symmetry and in this case one right angle.

you can't

It would be infinite.

No.

yes but make sure you look and make sure

draw four lines the make 3 right angles but don't connect at the end continue to finish the pentagon with whatever lines you want
