    A geometric figure is any proper shape, such as circle, triangle, or square. A gemotric figure can be 2d duch as a square or 3d such as a cube.

    Any point, line, segment, ray, angle, polygon, curve, region, plane, surface, solid, etc. Formally, a geometric figure is any set of points on a plane or in space.

    Any shape which seems like it is defined by a rule or looks like a regular figure is a geometric shape. Here are a couple of examples -

    1. Square - All sides are equal and they are all perpendicular to each other.

    2. Circle - Any two points on the circle are equidistant from each other

    3. Cube - A box like figure which has 6 faces and each face is an equally sized square.

    In Geometry, there are specific names for different types of shapes that share the same Mathematical qualities. As with other types or areas of Math, having specific names (vocabulary) for these shapes helps Mathematicians communicate to one another.

    There are a variety of unique shapes that are commonly found in Geometrical problems. A different number of sides, or whether a shape has straight or curved lines, are just a couple of ways that shapes can differ from one another. How many dimensions a figure has is another example. In basic Geometry, you will usually be just dealing with simple 2D shapes that do not have "Depth" as a calculating factor.

    Some examples of Geometrical shapes are:

Find the upper and lower bounds of calculations

If we round 20.8cm to the nearest centimetre, it becomes 21cm.

If we are given the number 21cm and told it has been previously rounded to the nearest centimetre, we do not know what number it was originally.  For example it could have been 21.2cm, or 20.9cm, or 20.756cm.  What we do know, is the biggest (maximum) or smallest (minimum) number it could possibly have been.

The minimum value it could have been, is 20.5cm.  Any smaller, even a tiny bit, and it would have rounded down to 20cm, not up to 21cm.

The maximum value it could have been, is 21.499999999…cm.  Because this looks messy, we tend to just say the maximum value it could have been before rounding is 21.5cm.  Yes, this would have been rounded up to 22cm, but since the difference between 21.5cm and 21.499…cm is infinitely small anyway, and it looks so much neater, we say the maximum is 21.5cm.

If all the numbers in a calculation have been rounded, then there is a maximum and minimum value for the answer to the calculation.

e.g. 5m x 10m, where both measurements have been rounded to the nearest metre.

Maximum:  5.5m x 10.5m = 57.75m

Minimum: 4.5m x 9.5m = 42.75m
