1-33. Yes, his plants will be dead. If his plants are indoors, they will be dead because he will
be gone for 2 weeks and so he did not water them at least once a week. If he left them
outdoors, they will still be dead because it has not rained for 2 weeks, so he needed to
water them once a week as well.

on the facts. As stated in Fact #2, a square is a rectangle because it has four right angles.
However, a rhombus does not have to have four right angles, so therefore there is not
enough evidence that a rhombus is a rectangle.

b: No, only trees must be green according to the statement.
c: No, the second statement reverses the first.
3-54. a: Yes, AA ~. Dilate from right vertex.
b: Yes, AA ~ since all angles are 60°.
c: Yes, zoom factor of 2.5; translate so that one pair of corresponding vertices coincide,
rotate so that rays coincide, and dilate.
d: No, since corresponding angles are not equal. Note that you cannot apply zoom factor
to angles.
3-55. a: One strategy: Translate one so that the centers coincide. Then dilate so that the radius
is the same as the other circle.
b: Equilateral triangles, which from part (b) of 3-54 were similar because they have equal
angle measures. Squares or other regular polygons are also always similar.
3-56. a: There are 12 combinations. One way to systematically list them all is to list a bus

side length of second rectangle must be 9" because the area is 36 sq. in. Since angles are
equal and ratios of corresponding side lengths are equal, therefore, the rectangles are
similar. In fact, they are congruent because r = 1.

3-88. a: Scalene triangle
c: Not possible
b: Isosceles triangle
d: Equilateral triangle
3-89. a: The two equations should have the same slope but a different y-intercept. This forces
the lines to be parallel and not intersect.
b: When solving a system of equations that has no solution, the equations combine to
create an impossible equality, such as 3 = 0. Another special case occurs when the
resulting equality is always true, such as 2 = 2. This is the result when the two lines
coincide, creating infinite points of intersection.

angles is 180°. Then add the 40° and 35° of ∠QPS and ∠QRS, respectively, and the sum
of the base angles of ΔPQR must be 115°. Thus, m∠Q must be 180° – 115° = 65°.
