Geometry problems

Geometric problems often have diagrams provided that involve triangles, quadrilaterals and other polygons.

It is important to know properties of these shapes as questions will often involve knowing angle and length properties. For example, remember that each angle in an equilateral triangle is 60°.

When a problem involves lengths and angles, it may be easier to show any working out on the diagram. For example, you should label any angles calculated.

A problem solving framework can be used to tackle geometry problems.
