Tackling False Maps
Our poor house! Even though the slash marks are still in the two lines making up the roof, they don’t look even.
To combat the False Map, change the first step of our approach:
Step 1: Redraw the figure as accurately as possible.
On your new figure, combine all the information from the diagram and the stem into the single picture. You need to stop looking at a figure that is deliberately false, since this false image can impede your ability to answer the item.
On the distorted diagram, the length of CD (7) is shorter than AB (5). Your new diagram should correct that, and it should also make AB and BC equal in length.
After redrawing the picture, proceed with the item using the usual Treasure Map steps 2, 3, and 4.
