Triangles

3 sided polygon: a, b, c Has three angles: A, B, C Angles added together will always equal 180r.

Acute Triangles

A triangle in which all three angles are less than 90r.

Isosceles Triangles

An isosceles triangle is a triangle with (at least) two equal sides.

Obtuse Triangles

An obtuse triangle is a triangle in which one of the angles is greater than 90r.

Right Triangles

A right triangle is triangle with an angle of 90r. Will have a marked angle as seen.

Scalene Triangles

A triangle with three unequal sides.

Equilateral Triangles

An equilateral triangle is a triangle with all three sides of equal length. Also as three equal angles.

Congruent Triangles
