    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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:

Solve vector geometry problems

Vectors are arrows. They point in a certain direction, and they have a certain size. We have three different sets of mathematical notation to describe their size and their direction.

Solving vector geometry problems requries knowledge of how to add, subtract and multiply vectors. Once you know how, vectors are very easy.

You may be asked to find or calculate the correct notation to describe a given vector.

E.g.
