1: Draw your hexagon, so you can see what is going on.
2: Construct lines from the center point to each of the vertices, you now have 6 isosceles triangles.
3: Divide 360' by 6 to get the angle at the top vertex of one of the triangles = 60'
4: Since these are isosceles … Read more
First, I am assuming the question should read, "how many MORE vertices ...".
Step one, should always be to draw a diagram, so you can see what is going on.
A rectangular prism, is a 3 dimensional shape created with two identical rectangles, joined together with straight lines - another name for … Read more
In the equation Y = MX + C, M is the slope, so you can rearrange your equation to read the same way.
3X + 4Y = 1
4Y = -3X + 1
Y = (-3X)/4 + 1/4
Now this is in the form Y = MX + C, where M = -3
So your … Read more
I assume you mean, what does circumference mean?
Circumference is the special name given to the perimeter of a circle. It's like saying square versus rectangle. A square is a rectangle, but by saying square you are also saying four sides of equal length, four 90 degree angles.
By saying circumference rather than perimeter, you are saying … Read more
Statistics themselves don't lie, however, an individual can 'tailor' questions to lean towards a specific trend or answer. Also, depending on how the results are presented visually will also affect how people absorb the information. This is particularly the case when representing information by for example bar charts. By increasing the 'length of units' on the access for … Read more
There are two things here you need to understand.
1: What is a mixed number - it is a mixture of a whole number and a fraction.
2: Understand which part is which in 2.7
2 is the whole number 0.7 is the fraction.
What is 0.7 as a fraction? It is 7/10
So 2.7 as … Read more
It is used a lot in art, the first thing that comes to mind is drawing the roof of a building.
It is used quite a bit in tilling, especially mosaics
Scrapbooking comes to mind also.
And also in many games and puzzles such as Tangrams
I hope this helps
Well since your width is fixed at 20 cm (and there are two of these in a rectangle) this will account for 40cm of your perimeter.
Take 40 cm away from 88 cm and you get 44 cm (this accounts for both your lengths, so divide this by two) 44/2 = 22cm. This tells you that … Read more
First understand that every circle is 360 degrees no matter it's size.
So if you want to divide it into 10 equal parts, you need to know the number of degrees for each part.
That would be 360/10 or 36.
So, draw a radius anywhere in your circle, measure 36 degrees to get your next … Read more
What this question tells you is that 63 employees represent 90%. Since you want to know the total number of employees you want to establish what 100% is.
63 = 90%
63/90 = 1%
(63/90) x 100 = 100%
0.7 x 100 = 100%
70 = 100%
This tells you that there is a total of … Read more
First find the factors of each number
Factors of 28: 1,2,4,7, 14, 28
Factors of 77: 1, 7, 11, (you can go further, but there is no point as you have reached the highest COMMON factor)
What is the highest factor COMMON to both - answer - 7

This is definitely a skill that is learned through practice and use, however, there are a few things you can do.
Step 1. Read the question first to get 'an idea' of what is being asked.
Step 2. Where relevant (or whenever possible) draw a diagram to represent the question.
Step 3. Read the question again, underlining … Read more
2(x-y) = 8 when x = 6
Step 1 substitute 6 for the value of x in the equation
2(6-y) = 8
Step 2 Tidy this equation up now
(2 x 6)+ (2 x -y) = 8
12 -2y = 8
Step 3 Solve for y
12 -2y + 2y = 8 + 2y ..... Add 2y … Read more
