Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it is a huge source of confusion the side of a triangle is the side of a triangle, not the length of the side of a triangle you can divide a diameter in two pieces if you like and each will have length half of the original length but another question is, what does "divide in half" mean? it means the math teacher doesn't know math imho

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it shows a massive confusion between the object and the measure of the object like saying "i am 6" vs "i am six feet tall"
