First, I measured the lengths of the long and short side of the triangle and then I measured its obtuse and acute angle with a protractor. After measuring I did the calculations for exercise 1 and made sure that I followed the specific instructions provided for doing the calculations. I then started Exercise 2 by gathering 12 round or cylindrical objects from all around my house. And then I started to measure every objects diameter, circumference and also calculated the ratio for every object one by one. To calculate
