# Acute Angle- angle that measures between 0 and 90 degrees

## Acute triangle- All angles are less than 90 degrees

Adjacent angles- Two angles that share both a side and a vertex.

Alternate interior angle- congruent angles on the interior and are on opposite sides

Altitude- line segment drawn from an angle to the opposite side, creating a right angle

Angle-The union of two rays with a common endpoint, called the vertex.

Angle addition postulate- If angle ABD and angle DBC are adjacent angles, then angle ABC= angle
ABD =+ angle DBC

## Complementary angles- two angles whose sum is 90 degrees

Conjecture- a statement that appears true but has not been proven

Congruent- equal/same

## Coplanar- points that lie on the same plane

Corresponding angles-When two lines are crossed by another line (which is called the Transversal), the
angles in matching corners

## Equilateral triangle- All 3 sides of the triangle are congruent

Exterior angle- the angle between any side of a shape, and a line extended from the next side

Exterior angle theorem- A measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures
of the two non=adjacent interior angles
Hexagon- a polygon with 6 sides and 6 angles

## Isosceles triangle- 2 legs of the triangle are congruent

Legs of a right triangle- either of the sides in a triangle across from the hypotenuse

N-gon-

## Polygon- man sided figure

Postulate- a statement assumed to be true without proof

## Quadrilateral- a polgon with 4 sides and 4 angles

Ray-part of a line, with one endpoint, and extending to infinity in one direction.

## Right angle- angle that measures 90 degrees

Right triangle- Has one right triangle, and the other two angles are complementary

Scalene triangle- A triangle that has 3 sides with all different lengths

Skew lines- lines that are not parallel but do not intersect

## Triangle- a polygon with 3 sides and 3 angles

Triangle inequality theorem- the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the
length of the third side

## Vertex/vertices- corners of where sides meet

Vertical angles- formed by two intersecting lines, opposite each other and also congruent
