Reasoning: A vertex of a quadrilateral has coordinates (a, b). The x-coordinates of the other three vertices are a or -a and the y-coordinates are b or -b. What kind of quadrilateral is the figure? Be as specific as possible.

The quadrilateral is a rectangle.

The quadrilateral is a rhombus.

The quadrilateral is a square.

Review Lesson 2-2: Write the converse of the statement.

If x = 51, then 2x = 102.

Review Lesson 2-2: Write the contrapositive of the statement.

If x = 51, then 2x = 102.

Review Lesson 3-7: Find the equation of the line that contains (p, q) and has slope a/b.

y - p = (a/b)(x - q)

y - q = (a/b)(x - p)

y - a = (p/q)(x - b)

y - b = (p/q)(x - a)

- True
- False

- The vertex of an angle is the endpoint of two rays.
- When you name angles using three points, the vertex gets named first.
- A polygon has the same number of sides and vertices.
