1.
Identify a pair of polygons that is used for the tessellation.

 a. octagons and rectangles b. squares and rectangles c. octagons and squares d. pentagons and hexagons

#### Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by octagons and squares.

2.
Which figure is used for the tessellation?

 a. Figure 2 b. Figure 3 c. Figure 4 d. Figure 1

#### Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by joining the scalene triangles.

So, Figure 3 which is a scalene triangle is used for the tessellation.

3.
Which polygon would complete the tessellation?

 a. hexagon b. parallelogram c. rectangle d. square

#### Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by joining the parallelograms.

So, a parallelogram completes the tessellation.

4.
Which polygon would complete the tessellation?

 a. rectangle b. square c. pentagon d. hexagon

#### Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by joining the rectangles.

So, a rectangle completes the tessellation.

5.
Which polygon would complete the tessellation?

 a. rectangle b. square c. parallelogram d. hexagon

#### Solution:

The given tessellation is formed by joining the squares.

So, a square completes the tessellation.

6.
Which figure is obtained when Figure A is rotated by 90°?

 a. Figure 3 b. Figure 1 c. Figure 2 d. Figure 4

#### Solution:

Rotation is the transformation in which a figure is turned by an angle.

When Figure A is rotated by 90°, Figure 3 is obtained.

7.
Which figure shows a 180° rotation of Figure A?

 a. Figure 1 b. Figure 2 c. Figure 4 d. Figure 3

#### Solution:

Rotation is the transformation in which a figure is turned by an angle.

When Figure A is rotated by 180°, Figure 4 is obtained.

8.
Which figure shows a 270° clockwise rotation of the rectangle given?

 a. Figure 1 b. Figure 2 c. Figure 3 d. Figure 4

#### Solution:

Rotation is the transformation in which a figure is turned by an angle.

When the given figure is rotated 270° clockwise, Figure 2 is obtained.

9.
Which figure shows a 360° counterclockwise rotation of the triangle shown?

 a. Figure 2 b. Figure 4 c. Figure 1 d. Figure 3

#### Solution:

Rotation is the transformation in which a figure is turned by an angle.

When the given figure is rotated 360° counterclockwise, Figure 4 is obtained.

10.
Which figure shows a 270° clockwise rotation of the flag shown?

 a. Figure 2 b. Figure 4 c. Figure 3 d. Figure 1

#### Solution:

Rotation is the transformation in which a figure is turned by an angle.

When the given figure is rotated 270° clockwise, Figure 4 is obtained.
