Triangle review

A scalene triangle has no sides and no angles equal.

An isosceles triangle has two sides and two angles equal.

An equilateral triangle has three sides and three angles equal.

Triangle Review


Triangle review

A right triangle has one right angle.

Identify the triangle below;

right isosceles

How are the three sides of a right triangle related to each other?


Triangle review

The Pythagorean Theorem

a2 + b2 = c2

c

Hypotenuse, the longest side of a right triangle

a

b


Triangle review

c

6

Example 1: Calculate side c.

c2 = a2 + b2

c2 = 82 + 62

c2 = 64+ 36

c2 = 100

c = 10


Triangle review

hypotenuse

Example 2: Calculate side x.

a2 + b2 = c2

x

x2 + 72 = 122

x2 + 49 = 144

12

x2 = 144 – 49

x2 = 95

x = 9.7


Triangle review

Similar Triangles

Two triangles are considered to be similar if and only if:

  • they have the same shape

  • corresponding angles are equal

  • the ratio of the corresponding side lengths are equal
