A circle and a triangle are both shapes. Did you know it is said that only a genius can draw a perfect circle? Have a go and see if you are a genius! There are various types of triangles, like Isosceles, scalene or equilateral, depending on the size of their angles.

Do you know the difference between an oblong and a rectangle? Can you tell an isosceles from a scalene triangle? See how much you remember about shapes by playing this quiz.

A regular octahedron would have equilateral triangles as each of its 8 faces
3.

Remember that 'octa' means 8 and that 'hedron' means a 3D shape
4.
What is the name given to the distance from one edge of a circle to the other through the center?

If they both have the same three sides
If they both have a right angle
If they both have the same size angles
If they both have two sides the same
If one shape can become identical to another by using turns, flips or slides but without changing the size, then the two shapes are congruent
