2. trapezoid
3. square
4. rhombus
##### 10. Choose the correct pair of words to complete the following statement.All _____________ triangles must be _______________ triangles.
1. equilateral, acute
2. acute, scalene
3. obtuse, isosceles
4. scalene, right

1. C: When subtraction comes before division, it must be placed in parentheses. The phrase “subtract 4 from 18” means the same as “18 minus 4.”

2. B: All the other numbers are smaller than 21,561.72, but 21,571.72 is 10 more than 21,561.72.

3. D: Find the number of times 28 goes into 35; record this result (1) above the 5. Subtract 28(28 X 1) from 35 and bring down the 8. Find the number of times 28 goes into 78; record this result (2) above the 8. Subtract 56(28 X 2) from 78 and bring down the 4. Find the number of times 28 goes into 224; record this result (8) above the 4. Subtract 224(28 X 8) from 224. 4. D: The answer is found by dividing the number of cans by the number of dogs: 5 cans / 4 dogs. The fraction is improper, so rewrite it as a mixed number: 4 goes into 5 once (so the whole number is 1) and the remainder is 5 – 4 = 1 (so the numerator of the fraction is 1).

5. D: The area is found by multiplying 6. D: To convert from feet to inches, multiply by the factor: 7. D: There are 18 unit cubes on the front of the box, so the middle and the back will also have 18 unit cubes each. 18 X 3 = 54 unit cubes.

8. A: Point A is located at (4,2), the point four units to the right of the origin and two units above the origin.

9. B: A trapezoid has only one pair of parallel sides. A square, a rectangle, and a rhombus all have two pairs of parallel sides.

10. A: All equilateral triangles have three equal sides and three equal angles. The measure of those angles is 60°, so those angles can only be acute.
