Mensurationnoun

The act or process of measuring; measurement.

Geometrynoun

The branch of mathematics dealing with spatial relationships.

Mensurationnoun

(mathematics) The study of measurement, especially the derivation and use of algebraic formulae to measure the areas, volumes and different parameters of geometric figures.

Geometrynoun

A mathematical system that deals with spatial relationships and that is built on a particular set of axioms; a subbranch of geometry which deals with such a system or systems.

Mensurationnoun

(music) A 13th century system for governing rhythmic relationships in music that was a precursor to the modern use of time signatures; The use of mensural notation.

Geometrynoun

Geometrynoun

That branch of mathematics which investigates the relations, properties, and measurement of solids, surfaces, lines, and angles; the science which treats of the properties and relations of magnitudes; the science of the relations of space.

Mensurationnoun

The act, process, or art, of measuring.

Geometrynoun

Mensurationnoun

That branch of applied geometry which gives rules for finding the length of lines, the areas of surfaces, or the volumes of solids, from certain simple data of lines and angles.

Geometrynoun

the pure mathematics of points and lines and curves and surfaces

Mensurationnoun

the act or process of measuring;

āthe measurements were carefully doneā; āhis mental measurings proved remarkably accurateā;

Geometry

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: Ī³ĪµĻĪ¼ĪµĻĻĪÆĪ±; geo- , -metron ) is, with arithmetic, one of the oldest branches of mathematics. It is concerned with properties of space that are related with distance, shape, size, and relative position of figures.
