# Basics of Geometry

### Geometry unit 1 (fairhope)

Question | Answer |
---|---|

Acute Angle | An angle with measure between 0 degrees and 90 degrees. |

Adjacent Angles | Two angles with a common vertex and side but no common interior points. |

Angle | Consists of two different rays that have the same initial point. |

Angle Bisector | A ray that divides an angle into two adjacent angles that are congruent. |

Bisect | To divide into two congruent parts. |

Collinear | Points that lie on the same line. |

Compass | A construction tool used to draw arcs. |

Complementary Angles | Two angles whose measures have the sum of 90 degrees. |

Congruent Segments | Segments with the same length. |

Coplanar | Points, lines, rays, or segments that lie in the same plane. |

intersect | To have one or more points in common. |

line | Exists in one dimension and extends without end in opposite directions. |

linear pair | Two adjacent angles whose non common sides are opposite rays. |

midpoint | A point that bisects a segment into two congruent parts. |

obtuse angle | An angle with measure between 90 degrees and 180 degrees. |

plane | Exists in two dimension and extends in all directions without end. |

point | A location that has no dimension. |

ray | Part of a line that consists of an initial point and all points extending from that point. |

segment | Part of a line that consists of two endpoints and all the points between. |

supplementary angles | Two angles whose measures have the sum of 180 degrees. |

vertical angles | Two angles whose sides form two pair of opposite rays. |

Linear Pair Postulate | If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary. |

Vertical Angles Theorem | Vertical Angles are Congruent. |

theorem | A true statement that follows as a result of other true statements. |

Geometry | The mathematics of the properties, measurement, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids. |

opposite rays | Two rays that have a common endpoint and form a straight line. |

pi | The ratio of Circumference to diameter. |

postulate | A geometry rule that is excepted as true without proof. |

reflection | A transformation across a line in which the image is the same distance from the line as the preimage. |

transformation | A change in the position, size or shape of a figure. |
