**Geometry In Cooking**

**By: Kayla Goerges**

Right Angle- An angle whose measurement is 90 degrees. This cake has four right angles because it is a rectangular cake.

Parallel Lines- Two lines, on the same plane, that will never intersect. Here it shows a cake that has been iced with two parallel lines.

Rectangle- A polygon that has four right angles, and two pairs of parallel, congruent lines. This cake is a rectangle.

Circumference- the distance on the outside of a circle. Can be found by using the formula 2πr.( 2 times pi times radius.)

Radius- A line segment in in the center of a circle whose measurement is half of the diameter.

Diameter- A line segment that passes through the center of a circle, and starts and ends at each side.

Concentric circles- Two circles that share a plane, and have the same center. Here you can see that the circles are concentric because the all share a center, and plane.

Congruent circles- Two circles

can only be congruent if their radius's have the same measurement.

Isosceles Triangle- A triangle with at least two congruent sides. The congruent sides are called legs.

Vertex Angle- An angle formed by the legs of an isosceles triangle.

Base Angles- Angles opposite the legs.

Circle- A figure that's circumference is equal distance from the center at all times. The pans are all circles, like many items in the kitchen.

Complementary angles- Two angles who's sum adds to be 90 degrees.

Supplementary angles-Two angles who's sum is 180 degrees.

Secant- a straight line that cuts a curve in two or more parts.

Cord- A segment with endpoints on a circle.

Geometry is a large part in our everyday lives, but it it especially useful when cooking because of all of the different things that you can create.
