are points that sit on the same line △Lines A line is represented by a straight line and arrowheads signify that it extends indefinitely in both directions. It can be named by any two points that it passes through – this line is AB. △ Line segments A line segment has fixed length, so it will have endpoints rather than arrowheads. A line segment is named by its endpoints – this is line segment CD. △ Planes A plane is usually represented by a twodimensional figure and labelled with a capital

the triangle determine the vector’s length and direction. In the example on the left, a swimmer’s path is a vector. The other two sides of the triangle are the distance across to the opposite shore from the starting point, and the distance down from the end point that the swimmer was aiming for to the actual end point where the swimmer reaches the shore. ◁ Vector of a swimmer A man sets out to swim to the opposite shore of a river that is 30m wide. A current pushes him as he swims, and he ends up

length. A kite has two pairs of adjacent sides that are equal in length. Opposite sides are not of equal length. It has one pair of opposite angles that are equal and another pair of angles of diﬀerent adjacent values. side is of one pair of parallel sides opposite side is of equal length equal length adjacent side is of equal length opposite angle is equal 132 GEOMETRY FINDING THE AREA OF QUADRILATERALS Area is the space inside the frame of a two-dimensional shape. Area is measured in

multiplication, and the two are always connected. If you know the answer to a particular division, you can form a multiplication from it and vice versa. 10÷ 2=5 5 × 2=10 ◁ Back to the beginning If 10 (the dividend) is divided by 2 (the divisor), the answer (the quotient) is 5. Multiplying the quotient (5) by the divisor of the original division sum (2) results in the original dividend (10).
