to the effect of the limit of precision in the
measurements.

12. It is impossible to increase its area, because a
regular pentagon maximizes the area. Any
dragging of the vertices decreases the area.

divide the triangle into six triangles of equal area.
Argument: Triangles 1 and 2 have equal area
because they have equal bases and the same
height. Because the centroid divides each median
into thirds, you can show that the height of
triangles 1 and 2 is ᎏ
1
3
ᎏ the height of the whole
triangle. Each has an area ᎏ

explanation: The angle with measure d corresponds
to the angle forming a linear pair with g. Because
d ϭ100°, by the Parallel Lines Conjecture, the
angle adjacent to g measures 100°, and by the
Linear Pair Conjecture, g ϭ80°. The angle with
measure f corresponds to the angle measuring
100°, so f ϭ100°. The angles measuring g and k
are the base angles of an isosceles triangle, so by
the Isosceles Triangle Conjecture, k ϭ80°.

14. Sample answer: Construct an altitude from
the vertex of an obtuse angle to the base. Cut off
the right triangle and move it to the opposite side,
forming a rectangle. Because the parallelogram’s
area hasn’t changed, its area equals the area of the
rectangle. Because the area of the rectangle is
given by the formula A ϭbh, the area of the
parallelogram is also given by A ϭbh.
