Explanation:

Step 6.
Were there any triangles you could not construct? Were there any triangles that you could construct in more than one way? Explain.
Yes, at step 3 we could not construct any triangle. At step 1 we can construct more than one triangle because the measurements of the triangle ABC are  AB = 7 cm, BC = 8 cm, and DE = 4.6 cm, EF = 6 cm, and AC = 11 cm.

Question 3.
In an equilateral triangle, each side length is 6.5 centimeters long.
The measurements of the equilateral triangle , each side length is 6.5 cm.

Explanation:

Question 4.
In triangle ABC, AB = 4 cm, AC = 5 cm, and m∠ABC = 40°.
The measurements of the triangle ABC, AB = 4 cm, AC = 5 cm, and m∠ABC = 40°.

Explanation:

Question 7.
Triangle POR has the dimensions shown in the diagram.

a) Construct triangle POR.

b) Using a ruler, from your construction, measure the length of $$\overline{P R}$$.
Using a ruler we measure the length of $$\overline{P R}$$.
PR ≈ 6.1 cm

c) Find the measures of ∠P and ∠R without using a protractor. Justify your answer.
△PQR is Isosceles because PQ = QR Therefore the angles P and R we congruent:
m∠P = m∠R
Find m∠P and m∠R:
m∠P + m∠R – m∠Q = 180°
2m∠P + 100° = 180°
2m∠P = 180° – 100°
2m∠P = 80°
m∠P = m∠R = $$\frac{80^{\circ}}{2}$$ = 40°
