What was flax used for in Maori villages?

Twisted, plaited and woven, it was used to create a wide range of items, such as fishing nets and traps, footwear, cords and ropes.

What did the British use flax for?

Flax fibre had long been used by Māori for many purposes. But British traders wanted it for one thing – to make rope for ships’ rigging. In the 1820s Māori sold flax in return for goods such as muskets and blankets.

Why is flax so important to Maori?

Flax was the most important fibre plant to Māori in New Zealand. Flax also had many medicinal uses. The sticky sap or gum that flax produces was applied to boils and wounds and used for toothache. Flax leaves were used in binding broken bones and matted leaves were used as dressings.

What are the diagonals of a kite?

The diagonals of a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent congruent sides – a kite – are perpendicular; also, bisects the and angles of the kite. Consequently, is a 30-60-90 triangle and is a 45-45-90 triangle.

Are diagonals congruent in a kite?

Diagonals in Kites The diagonals are not congruent, but they are always perpendicular. In other words, the diagonals of a kite will always intersect at right angles.

Can a kite have congruent diagonals True or false?

In a kite, opposite sides are congruent. In a kite, diagonals bisect each other. False. A kite’s diagonals are congruent.

Is it true that all squares are Rhombuses?

A rhombus is a quadrilateral (plane figure, closed shape, four sides) with four equal-length sides and opposite sides parallel to each other. All squares are rhombuses, but not all rhombuses are squares. The opposite interior angles of rhombuses are congruent.

How are the diagonals of a kite compared to each other?

The intersection of the diagonals of a kite form 90 degree (right) angles. This means that they are perpendicular. The longer diagonal of a kite bisects the shorter one. This means that the longer diagonal cuts the shorter one in half.

Do all parallelograms have 4 right angles?

In a parallelogram, if one of the angles is a right angle, all four angles must be right angles. If a four-sided figure has one right angle and at least one angle of a different measure, it is not a parallelogram; it is a trapezoid.

Can a rhombus have 4 right angles?

A square has two pairs of parallel sides, four right angles, and all four sides are equal. It is also a rectangle and a parallelogram. A rhombus is defined as a parallelogram with four equal sides. No, because a rhombus does not have to have 4 right angles.

Can a parallelogram have all right angles?

A parallelogram where all angles are right angles is a rectangle!

Can a parallelogram have exactly two right angles?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with 2 pair of opposite sides parallel. A square is a special rectangle that has all four sides congruent. A kite has two consecutive sides congruent. The angle between these two sides could be a right angle, but there would only be one right angle in the kite.

Can a kite have exactly two right angles?

Thus the right kite is a convex quadrilateral and has two opposite right angles. If there are exactly two right angles, each must be between sides of different lengths. One of the diagonals (the one that is a line of symmetry) divides the right kite into two right triangles and is also a diameter of the circumcircle.

Are all quadrilaterals with two right angles a right trapezoid?

The quadrilateral that can have only two right angles is a trapezoid. Not all trapezoids have right angles, but we can construct one that does.

Can a trapezoid have 4 right angles?

Trapezoids. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral, which means it has four sides. Two sides must be parallel to each other for it to be a trapezoid. A trapezoid also has four angles.

Can a trapezium have 4 right angles?

A trapezium cannot have four right angles.

Which shape has most right angles?
