Yes!!!! You can. If you know the side lengths, say 7,9 & 11. You need a ruler and a pair of compasses. Draw you base line of '11' . Open the compasses to '9' using the ruler. Put one point of the compass on the end of the base line and draw an arc. Again open the compasses to '7' . Put one point of the compass on the other end of the base line and draw an arc. Where the two arcs intersect is the apex of the triangle. So taking your ruler drawe a line from one end of the base line to the apex. ,and then again draw a line from the other end of the base line to the apex. You now have a 7,9, & 11. triangle(trigon). Proving you know the side lengths, this method is hood for any shaped triangle.

The base of a pentagon is a straight line. In a regular pentagon, the two adjacent sides include obtuse angles of 108 degrees.

Yes. Draw a triangle without its base line. From both the base vertices draw a line to the opposite side(somewhere in the middle). The four lines so created will meet in 6 points.

On our court there are additional lines, one between the baseline and freethrow line "we'll call this line A" and one between the freethrow line and halfcourt "we'll call this line B" that I use. I believe the extra lines are for volleyball. So I line A, freethrow line, B and halfcourt for our suicides.

No im sorry but you can not have your foot on the line when you are shooting a freethrow. If you do put your foot on the line and you make it the shot will not count.

freethrow:)

No, it's not illegal. Rick Barry shot like that, and no ref said it was illegal.Plus, he had an 81% shooting average.

You can get up to 4 points. You can get 1 point for every freethrow you make when you are fouled. Two points for every basket you make inside the 3-point line. 3 points for every basket you make outside the 3-point line and 4 points if you were to get fouled while shooting the 3, therefore if you make your freethrow making it four points all together.

One point.

Describing someone as a "distant cousin" is a very imprecise way of saying that they are related to you, but the speaker either does not know exactly how or they are not a first cousin, but are "more distant."

The base line is the end line on both sides of the court.
