Practice Exam Test Questions

Choose the letter of the best answer in each questions.

1. Which of the following are complementary angles?

A. 90° and 90°

B. 18° and 18°

C. 71° and 19°

D. 15° and 30°


Option C


Complementary angles are two angles whose sum equals 90°. In option A, both angles are already 90°, so they cannot be complementary. In option B, both angles are the same, so their sum would be 36°, which is not equal to 90°.

In option C, their sum equals 90°, which means they are complementary angles. Therefore, the answer is option C, 71° and 19°.

2. If the angles of a triangle are in the ratio 4:6:5, then the triangle is _________.

A. isosceles

B. acute

C. right

D. obtuse


Option D


 The correct answer is D. Obtuse.

Let the angles of the triangle be 4x, 6x, and 5x, where x is a positive constant.

According to the triangle angle sum theorem, the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180°. Therefore, we can write:

4x + 6x + 5x = 180°

15x = 180°

x = 12°

Substituting x = 12° in the expressions for the angles, we get:

4x = 48°

6x = 72°

5x = 60°

So, the angles of the triangle are 48°, 72°, and 60°.

To determine whether the triangle is acute, right, or obtuse, we can use the Pythagorean theorem or the cosine rule.

Using the cosine rule, we have:

c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2ab cos(C)

c = 72

Since 72 is the largest side of the triangle, it is opposite the largest angle, which is 72°. Therefore, the triangle is obtuse.

Hence, the correct answer is option D, obtuse.

3. The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 10 and one leg is 6. What is the length of the other leg of the triangle?

A. 8

B. 10

C. 12

D. 16


Option A

4. Nine unique diagonals are drawn in a regular polygon. How many sides dies it have?

Option D

5. Lola Tetchi wishes to fence her agricultural land using only a 600-meter long material. If the land is quadrilateral in shape, what should be its dimensions in order to enclose the maximum area?

A. 270m x 30m

B. 250m x 50m

C. 200m x 100m

D. 150m x 150m


Option D


The correct answer is D. 150m x 150m.

Let the dimensions of the quadrilateral be x and y. Since the total length of the material is 600 meters, we have:

2x + 2y = 600

x + y = 300

y = 300 - x

The area of the quadrilateral is given by:

A = xy

Substituting y = 300 - x, we get:

A = x(300 - x)

A = 300x - x^2

This is a quadratic equation, which represents a parabola that opens downwards. Therefore, the maximum area occurs at the vertex of the parabola. The x-coordinate of the vertex is given by:

x = -b/2a

where a = -1 and b = 300.

Substituting the values, we get:

x = -300/(2*(-1))

x = 150

Therefore, the dimensions of the quadrilateral that encloses the maximum area are x = 150m and y = 300 - x = 150m. This means that the quadrilateral is a square with sides of 150 meters, and the maximum area that can be enclosed is 150m x 150m = 22,500 square meters.

Hence, the correct answer is option D, 150m x 150m.
