I think that question contains a typo. I'm not an expert, but I can't picture any way to have 4 sides and only 3 angles - unless there's some funky new definition of "side" or "angle" from when I was a kid.

Good luck!

Yes, but Trish knew you were a thousand words ahead of her so she worked through the night. Jenna, I told you this was a bad idea!

Just tell her you're taking time to make sure you get the right words!!!!!!!! vbg

Huh. 9 says there is no such shape. You need to tell that teacher to stop teaching existential math! Sheesh, what is the school system coming to these days?

Type, Jenna, type. Even though she's ahead, you're still making progress, right?

9 just asked why your school is trying to trick first graders.

Will you tell us what the answer is today?

I don't know the answer! I told him it was OK to put a question mark.
