The sum of two acute angles is an acute angle. always true, never or sometimes. Explain.

## Answers (1) 2021-01-03
Sometimes true
Recall that an acute angle measures greater than 0°0° and less than 90°.
An example where the statement is true is when the two angles are 10° and 20° which sums to 30°, an acute angle.
An example where the statement is false is when the two angles are 60°60° and 70°70° which sums to 130°, an obtuse angle.

Use function notation to describe the way the second variable (DV) depends upon the first variable (IV). Determine the domain and range for each, determine if there is a positive, negative, or no relationship, and explain your answers.
A)IV: an acute angle V in a right triangle: DV: the area B of the triangle if the hypotenuse is a fixed length G.
B)IV: one leg P of a right triangle: DV: the hypotenuse G of the right triangle if the other leg is 2
C)IV: the hypotenuse G of a right triangle: DV: the other leg P of the right triangle is one leg is 5. asked 2021-02-08

S1 and S2, shown above, are thin parallel slits in an opaqueplate. A plane wave of wavelength λ is incident from the leftmoving in a direction perpendicular to the plate. On a screenfar from the slits there are maximums and minimums in intensity atvarious angles measured from the center line. As the angle isincreased from zero, the first minimum occurs at 3 degrees. Thenext minimum occurs at an angle of-

The converse of the Pythagorean theorem is also a true statement: If the sum of the squares of the lengths of two sides of a triangle is equal to the square of the length of the third side, then the triangle is a right triangle. Use the distance formula and the Pythagorean theorem to determine whether the set of points could be vertices of a right triangle.
