4.12 Triangles

  • A triangle is a 3 sided polygon.
  • Triangles are two-dimensional figures.
  • Triangles can be classified according to the relative lengths of their sides as:
    • Equilateral triangle (3 sides of equal length)
    • Isosceles triangle (two sides are of equal length)
    • Scalene triangle (all sides have different lengths)
  • Triangles can also be classified according to the their internal angles as:
    • Right triangle (or right-angled triangle) has one 90 internal angle (a right angle). The side opposite to the right angle is the hypotenuse; it is the longest side in the right triangle. The other two sides are the legs of the triangle.
    • An obtuse triangle has one internal angle larger than 90 (an obtuse angle).
    • An acute triangle has internal angles that are all smaller than 90 (three acute angles).
    • An equilateral triangle is an acute triangle, but not all acute triangles are equilateral triangles.
    • An oblique triangle has only angles that are smaller or larger than 90. It is therefore any triangle that is not a right triangle.
  • The angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees.
  • The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle always exceeds the length of the third side. That is called the triangle inequality.
Example: A triangle with one obtuse angle and two sides equal.
Answer: Acute Isosceles triangle
