 Look at quadrilateral KLMN. Step A What is the measure of ∠M? ______________degrees Step B Use what you know about the angle measures of a quadrilateral to justify why the measure you determined for M is correct. Use words, numbers, and/or symbols in your justification. A new quadrilateral KLMN is drawn so that the measures of ∠K and ∠L do not change, but M and ∠N are now congruent. Use what you know about the angles of a quadrilateral to explain how this change affects the measure of ∠M. Use words, numbers, and/or symbols in your explanation. /toolkit/vsc/assessment_items/msa_math_7_032.xml View scoring information
