#### Question 1:

These are two slides in a park.

• Which slide has a larger angle?

• Which slide do you think is safer for the little boy? Why?

#### Answer:

- Slide 1 has a larger angle.
- As slide 1 has a larger angle and steeper than slide 2, there will be more chances for the boy to get hurt while sliding on slide 1. Thus, slide 2 would be safer for the little boy than slide 1.

#### Question 1:

**Shapes and Towers** Look for triangles in the pictures below.

• From the activity ‘Changing Shapes’ can you guess why triangles are used in these towers, bridges etc?

• Look around and find out more places where triangles are used.

#### Answer:

- The triangles are used in the towers and bridges so as to make them strong. We know that a triangle is the strongest polygon out of all the other polygons. The angles can get changed in other polygons. However, in a triangle, the angles can not change once the triangle is built.

#### Question 1:

Can you guess how many degrees is the angle which is â€•

•

12of a right angle __________

•

13of a right angle __________

• 2 times of a right angle __________

#### Answer:

We know

1 right angle = 90°

- 12of a right angle =12× 90°

= 45°

- 13of a right angle =13× 90°

= 30°

- 2 times a right angle = 2 × 90°

= 180°
