**Geometry**is a kind of mathematics that deals with shapes and figures.

**Geometry**explains how to build or draw shapes, measure them, and compare them. People use

**geometry**in many kinds of work, from building houses and bridges to planning space travel.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is geometry in simple words?

**Geometry** is the part of mathematics that studies the size, shapes, positions and dimensions of things. Squares, circles and triangles are some of the **simplest** shapes in flat **geometry**. Cubes, cylinders, cones and spheres are **simple** shapes in solid **geometry**.

Furthermore, what are the basics of geometry? Before diving into two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes, consider the basic geometric **objects** that create these shapes: points, lines, line segments, rays, and planes. A point is represented by a dot and shows a location in space.

Hereof, what is a good definition in geometry?

An excellent **geometry definition** will classify, quantify, and not have a counterexample. Once a term is **defined**, it can be used in subsequent **definitions**; for example, once parallel lines are **defined**, they can be used in the **definition** of a parallelogram. The three key components of a **good definition**.

What is an example of geometry?

**Geometric** shapes are practically everywhere. No matter where you look, almost everything is made up of simpler **geometry**. A truss bridge is made primarily of rectangles, squares and triangles, for **example**. A snowman is made up of circles, with a cone-shaped carrot nose.
