Re: identification help
Omgee lol =)) Did you even bother to read your Geometry book? I guess not. cause' you'll find all of your answers there :D
But I'll give it a try
1. Geometry (if you still don't know this.. oh well)
2. Plane geometry
3. father of Geometry is Thales. Most of the people on the internet says it's Euclid. But the truth is, Euclid is only a student of Thales and Thales if the real father of Geometry :D
4. Points??
5. Lines
6. I think it's plane
7. Collinear Points
8. Coplanar
9. Ray
10. ANGLE.
11. Revolution (because revolution is exactly 360)
13. Theorem if I'm not mistaken
14. Not sure with this one too. But is this postulate?
15.-.- protractor.
16. Complementary angles
17. Supplementary angles
18. I don't know with this one XD sorry
19. Parallel
20. Uhm, I am not sure with my answer here too. Perpendicular?
21. Polygon
22. Triangle
23. Scalene Triangle
24. Parallelogram
25. Altitude

Re: identification help
The whole point of problems like this is to force you to read the book carefully, paying attention to each word, not just skimming. I am a little sorry that elmothemonkey answered these questions as it might prevent you from doing that. On the other hand, I hope you will have the intelligence to at least check whether his answer are correct or not. For example, his answer to the very first question, the only one I checked is incorrect.
