Vocabulary Connections

To become familiar with some of the vocabulary terms in the chapter, consider the following. You may refer to the chapter, the glossary, or a dictionary if you like.

1. How can you use the everyday meaning of the word center to understand the term center of a circle ?

2. The word composite means of separate parts. What do you think the term composite figure means?

3. What does the word probability mean? How do you think geometric probability differs from theoretical probability?

4. The word apothem begins with the root apo-, which means away from. The apothem of a regular polygon is measured away from the center to the midpoint of a side. What do you think is true about the apothem and the side of the polygon?

Study Strategy: Memorize FormulasThroughout a geometry course, you will learn many formulas, theorems, postulates, and corollaries. You may be required to memorize some of these. In order not to become overwhelmed by the amount of information, it helps to use flash cards.

Try This

1. Choose a lesson from this book that you have already studied, and make flash cards of the formulas or theorems from the lesson.

2. Review your flash cards by looking at the front of each card and trying to recall the information on the back of the card.

To create a flash card, write the name of the formula or theorem on the front of the card. Then clearly write the appropriate information on the back of the card. Be sure to include a labeled diagram.

Front Back

In a right triangle, the two sides that form the right angle are the legs . The side across from the right angle that stretches from one leg to the other is the hypotenuse . In the diagram, a and b are the lengths of the shorter sides, or legs, of the right triangle. The longest side is called the hypotenuse and has length c.

In a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the

lengths of the legs is equal to the square of the length of the hypotenuse.

a 2 + b 2 = c 2

Literal Equations

A literal equation contains two or more variables. Formulas you have used to find perimeter, circumference, area, and side relationships of right triangles are examples of literal equations.

If you want to evaluate a formula for several different values of a given variable, it is helpful to solve for the variable first.

Example

Danielle plans to use 50 feet of fencing to build a dog run.

Use the formula P = 2 + 2w to find the length when the width w is 4, 5, 6, and 10 feet.

Solve the equation for .

First solve the formula for the variable.

P = 2 + 2w Write the original equation.

Subtract 2w from both sides.

Divide both sides by 2.

P - 2w = 2

P - 2w _ 2

=

Use your result to find for each value of w.

= P - 2w _ 2

= 50 - 2 (4)

_ 2

= 21 ft Substitute 50 for P and 4 for w.

Substitute 50 for P and 5 for w.

Substitute 50 for P and 6 for w.

Substitute 50 for P and 10 for w.

= P - 2w _ 2

= 50 - 2 (5)

_ 2

= 20 ft

= P - 2w _ 2

= 50 - 2 (6)

_ 2

= 19 ft

= P - 2w _ 2

= 50 - 2 (10)

_ 2

= 15 ft

Try This

1. A rectangle has a perimeter of 24 cm. Use the formula P = 2 + 2w to find the width when the length is 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 cm.

2. A right triangle has a hypotenuse of length c = 65 ft. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of leg a when the length of leg b is 16, 25, 33, and 39 feet.

3. The perimeter of ABC is 112 in. Write an expression for a

in terms of b and c, and use it to complete the following table.

Algebra

Why learn this?You can use formulas for area to help solve puzzles such as the tangram.

A tangram is an ancient Chinese puzzle made from a square. The pieces can be rearranged to form many different shapes. The area of a figure made with all the pieces is the sum of the areas of the pieces.

The area of a region is equal to the sum of the areas of its nonoverlapping parts.

Recall that a rectangle with base b and height h has an area of A = bh. You can use the Area Addition Postulate to see that a parallelogram has the same area as a rectangle with the same base and height.

A triangle is cut off one side and translated to the other side.

The area of a parallelogram with base b and height h

is A = bh.

Area Parallelogram

Remember that rectangles and squares are also parallelograms. The area of a square with side s is A = s 2 , and the perimeter is P = 4s.

1E X A M P L E Finding Measurements of ParallelogramsFind each measurement.

A the area of the parallelogramStep 1 Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the height h. 3 2 + h 2 = 5 2

h = 4

Step 2 Use h to find the area of the parallelogram. A = bh Area of a parallelogram

Substitute 6 for b and 4 for h.

Simplify.

A = 6 (4) A = 24 in 2

ObjectivesDevelop and apply the formulas for the areas of triangles and special quadrilaterals.

Solve problems involving perimeters and areas of triangles and special quadrilaterals.

9-1 Developing Formulas for Triangles and Quadrilaterals

The height of a parallelogram is measured along a segment perpendicular to a line containing the base.

• 590 Chapter 9 Extending Perimeter, Circumference, and Area

Find each measurement.

B the height of a rectangle in which b = 5 cm and A = (5 x 2 - 5x) cm 2 A = bh Area of a rectangle

Substitute 5 x 2 - 5x for A and 5 for b.

Factor 5 out of the expression for A.

Divide both sides by 5.

Sym. Prop. of =

5 x 2 - 5x = 5h5 ( x 2 - x) = 5h x 2 - x = h h = ( x 2 - x) cm

C the perimeter of the rectangle, in which A = 12 x ft 2

Step 1 Use the area and the height to find the base. A = bh Area of a rectangle
