### MEAP Preparation - Grade 5 Mathematics3.3 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.

 Q 1: A triangle whose angles are given by 75 degrees, 45 degrees and 60 degrees is a (an) ________ angled triangle.Answer: Q 2: A (an) ________ angled triangle has its angle measures as 100 degrees, 60 degrees and 20 degrees.Answer: Q 3: The angles 30 degrees, 60 degrees and 90 degrees represents a (an) ________ angled triangle.Answer: Q 4: The side opposite to the right angle in a right angled triangle is called the ________ of the triangle.Answer: Q 5: The angles 90 degrees, 45 degrees and 45 degrees represents a (an) ________ triangle.Acute angled isoscelesRight angled isoscelesObtuse angled scalene Q 6: In a triangle the angles are given by 55 degrees, 25 degrees and 100 degrees.
