45-45-90 Right isosceles = 1, 1, 1.4

~ A line is 180 degrees angle ~ Every triangle contains 180 degrees ~ The longest side of a triangle is opposite the largest (visa versa)

~ A Prime Number can be divided evenly only by 1, or itself. Neither 0 nor 1 is prime ~ Prime factorization of 12 is 2*2*3 | 15 is 3*5
