Questions 1 and 2: Triangle ABC in the figure below is inscribed in circle C of center O. Suppose D is the midpoint of segment AC and E is the midpoint of segment BC. What is the circumference of the circle if the segment OD measures 2 cm?

The quadrilateral with vertices D, O, E and C in the figure above is a:

Question 3: Triangles ABD and BAC are inscribed in the same semicircle of a circle with center O, as shown in the figure below. Triangles ABD and BAC are congruent if:

Question 4: The center O of the circle inscribed in any triangle is the point of intersection of the:

Question 5: A circle of radius r and center O is inscribed in a right isosceles triangle ABC. Calculate the ratio between the area of the triangle and the area of the circle:

Question 6: The 3-point line distance from the basket of a NBA basketball court is r = OC = 23.75 ft. and d = OE = 22 ft. in the corner. The distance h between the baseline AB and the basket represented by point O is h = 5 ft.
Select the best approximation of the area between the 3-point line and the baseline of this basketball half court.

Questions 7 and 8: Two congruent circles with the centers in A and C intersect each other in points B and D. Calculate the area of the quadrilateral ABCD if the radius of the circles is r = 4 cm and the distance between the centers of the circles is AC = 1.8×r.

ABCDC in the figure above is a:

Question 9: Three identical cylinders are held next to each other with a rubber band. What is the approximate length of the rubber band in its extended position over the three cylinders? The radius of the bases of the cylinders is r = 5 cm.
