3.3 Classifying Triangles by Angles

Classification of triangles based on angles

  1. Acute angled triangle:

    • If all the angles of a triangle are acute angles, then it is called an acute angled triangle.

  2. Right angled triangle:
    • A triangle in which one of the angles is a right angle is called a right angled triangle.

    • In a right angled triangle, the side opposite to the right angle is called its hypotenuse.

  3. Obtuse angled triangle:
    • A triangle containing an obtuse angle is called an obtuse angled triangle.



Directions: Read the above properties of triangles and answer the following questions:
  1. Illustrate each of the above properties by drawing a triangle.
  2. Write in your own words, how to classify triangles according to their angles.
