# Geometry Problems

## Understanding Problem Statements

• Develop the ability to read and interpret given problem descriptions.
• Visualise the problem and try to understand what is the relationships between the different elements described.
• Identify the geometric shapes involved in the problem and their dimensions.
• If necessary, draw a diagram to help you better understand the problem.

## Applying Geometric Principles

• Once you have a good understanding of the problem, think about which geometric principles or concepts are relevant.
• Remember to consider the properties of shapes and solids as you work out the problem.

## Using Formulas

• Accurately apply geometry formulas to calculate lengths, areas, volumes and other geometric properties.
• Practise using the Pythagoras’ theorem and trigonometric ratios to solve problems involving right-angled triangles.
• Remember to use the distance and midpoint formulas when needed in a problem.

## Utilizing Position and Movement

• Be able to integrate ideas about position and movement in your solutions, including rotation, reflexion, translation and enlargement.
• Understand how to apply scale factors and scale drawings in geometry problems.
