points: A, B and C


Triangle classification by angle measurements

Triangle Classification—By Angle Measurements

Acute triangle—3 acute angles

Equiangular triangle—3 congruent acute angles

Right Triangle—one right angle

Obtuse Triangle—one obtuse angle


Classify the triangles angles

Classify the triangles--Angles

Classify each triangle by its angle measures

D C

BDC

obtuse triangle

BDA

Acute triangle


Triangle classification by side lengths

Triangle Classification—By Side Lengths

Equilateral Triangle: 3 congruent sides

Isosceles Triangle: at least 2 congruent sides

Scalene Triangle: no congruent sides


Classify the triangle sides

Classify the triangle--sides

Finding side lengths

Finding side lengths

F

Find the side lengths of the triangle.

3y – 4 5y - 10

G 2y + 3 H

GF = GH

3y – 4 = 2y + 3

y – 4 = 3

y = 7

GF = 3y – 4 GH = 2y + 3FH = 5y – 10

GF = 3(7) – 4GH = 2(7) + 3FH = 5(7) -10

GF = 17GH = 17FH = 25
