Area of a Trapezoid
In order to find the area of a trapezoid when only knowing the lengths of the bases and
the height, the first step is to split the trapezoid up into rectangles and triangles, with at least one
of the known lengths as a part of each sec

Writing Assignment #3
To find possible quadrilaterals with two sides each of length 6 and the other two sides with a sum

Sharing Pizza
1.
One way to solve this problem is by turning each tables pizza distribution into a
percentage or a fraction. At the large table, there are 10 people and 4 pizzas so we have to
divide 4 (pizzas) by 10 (people), and the fraction becomes 4/10

Extended Problem #2
Between two diagonals, there exists a number of possible relationships that involve both
the angle and the length of the two line segments. There are two possible lengths that two
diagonals can have in relation to each other: equal len

Seventeen Factors
1. The numbers 64 and 729 both have exactly seven factors. Both of these numbers are
square numbers (the results of 82 and 272, respectively). To find numbers with seven
factors, I first listed concluded that any number that has an odd n
