Definition: The perimeter (P) of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of its sides. 1) You are playing baseball and the field is shown on the right. You hit a home run. What is the total distance that you have to run? __________

2) Alice and Bob want to jog around 2 different parks, PARK A, and PARK B, in the anticlockwise direction as shown. Assuming that the speed of Alice and Bob remains the same all throughout, who will come back first to his/her starting point? __________ 3) ABC, ADE, and EFG are equilateral triangles, and D is the midpt. of , and G is the midpt. of . If AB = 4, what is the perimeter of ABCDEFG? __________ Definition: The area (A) of a polygon is the number of square units you can fit in inside the polygons interior. 4) State the Area Postulate: _____________________________________________________ Area Addition Postulate: If two polygonal regions do not overlap, then the area of their union is equal to the sum of their individual areas. Definition: In any triangle, let V be one of its vertices and let l be the line containing the side b of the triangle which does not contain V. If pt. X is on l such that , then we call an altitude of the triangle, with base b. 5.1) Find the area of each of the polygons: A - ___, B - ___, C - ___, D - ___, E - ___, F - ___ 5.2) What is the formula for the area of a square with side length s?

6) Alice has a square piece of cardboard with dimensions 8 in. x 8 in. Alice then decided to cut the cardboard into 4 pieces; 2 trapezoids, and 2 triangles. She then found out that she can re-arrange the pieces to form a rectangle with length 13 in. and width 5 in. Since the original square has area 64 sq. inches and the new rectangle has area 65 sq. inches, Alice concluded that 64 = 65. Is Alice correct? If Alice is wrong, how can you explain to her that she is wrong? 7) The Mona Lisa is a famous work of art by the Italian painter Leonardo Da Vinci. It is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506. It is a halflength portrait of a woman, who is believed to be Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo. It has dimensions of 30 in. x 21 in. and can be found on display at the Muse du Louvre, Paris, France. It is in the ownership of the French Republic. Suppose that this year, the government of France wants to purchase a new golden frame for the Mona Lisa, as shown on the right, with the Mona Lisa equidistant from all the sides of the frame. It was determined that the price per 1 sq. inch of gold that will be put on the frame is \$ 1,500. If the French government will spend \$ 1,734,000 for this new frame, what will be the new dimensions of the Mona Lisa with the frame included?
