Q:

Determine if the statement was gathered from the hypothesis, conclusion, or the diagram. A. This information was gathered from the hypothesis. B. This information was gathered from the conclusion. C. This information was gathered from the diagram. D. This information cannot be gathered from the hypothesis, conclusion, or the diagram.

Accepted Solution

A:
D) This information cannot be gathered from the hypothesis, conclusion, or the diagram.

We know ∠1 + ∠2 measures to 180 degrees. This means they are supplementary, because supplementary angles add up to 180°.

But we know this because of the statement, which states the sum of ∠1 and ∠2 is 180 degrees.

So the information was from the statement, not the hypothesis, conclusion, or diagram.

You can't look at a diagram to find exact measurements, because most of them are not to scale or not an accurate representation of the measurements.

There was no hypothesis, which is a proposition that hasn't been verified or proven to be false.

There was no conclusion, which is something that was proven or found out during an experiment or test.
