## Answers & Explanations

1. **E:** The vertex is the point, formed by the two rays of an angle. Thus, H is the vertex of the angle.

2. **C:** C=*πd*. Substituting 8 for *d* gives C=8π, where C is approximately 25.13.

3. **B:** The area of a triangle may be found by using the formula, A=1/2*bh*, where *b* represents the base and *h* represents the height. Thus, the area may be written as *A*=1/2(11)(6), or A = 33. The area of the triangle is 33 cm'.

4. **D:** The sum of the angles, formed by the perpendicular rays is 360°, thus the curved arrow represents an angle measure that is equal to the difference of 360° and 90°, or 270°.

5. **B:** Since angles A and B are supplementary, the measure of angle B is equal to the difference of 180° and 135°, or 45°.
