Question 1

The shape below can be made up of which three shapes?

  1. A

    B

    C

    A

    B

    C

 

Learn

Let's go the other way and put shapes together to build other shapes. It's kind of like a puzzle.

Question 2

The five shapes below can be combined to make which of the following composite shapes? 

  1. A

    B

    A

    B

 

Remember!

If we start with a two dimensional (2D) shape, we can break it into other 2D shapes. Likewise, we can join, or combine, shapes together to make new shapes.
