Dear Mr. Erickson,
We are from Mrs. Truss' Sixth Grade Class from McKinley
Accelerated Elementary in Middletown, Ohio. Here is our solution to
Polygon #3. We believe it is a parallelogram with a base of 5 cm., a height
of 4 cm., and the length of the other opposite sides are 7 cm.
We got this answer by working together. We read the clues to
each other. Second, we drew different figures to see what ones would work.
Next, wedecided that it had to be a parallelogram. Finally, we decided
on the dimensions. We are confident that our answer is correct! So is
Mr. Harris, our math teacher.
M. G., A. Y., B. O., & S. K.
eeps comments: Thank you for your solution!
I leave it to our readers to decide if it's correct. Now, the clues
ask for an accurate drawing of the polygon, which is hard to send via
computer. But maybe someone out there can figure out a way to send me
such a drawing. I can read a lot of file formats, but a .GIF file is
one easy choice, since it's one that works well here on the Web.
Send me one and I'll put it here!
