4.1 Triangles and Angles

Recall that a triangle ( ) is a polygon with three sides. Triangles can be classified in two ways: by their angle measures or by their side lengths.

4.1 Triangles and Angles

C

A

AB, BC, and AC are the sides of ABC.

B

A, B, C are the triangle's vertices.

4.1 Triangles and Angles

In a triangle, two sides sharing a common

4.1 Triangles and Angles

In a right triangle, the two sides making the right angle are called Legs.

The side opposite of the right angle is called the Hypothenuse.

4.1 Triangles and Angles

In an isosceles triangle, the two sides that are congruent are called the Legs.

The third side is the called the base.

Isosceles Triangle

At least two congruent sides

4.1 Triangles and Angles

4.1 Triangles and Angles

Remember!

When you look at a figure, you cannot assume segments are congruent based on appearance. They must be marked as congruent.

4.1 Triangles and Angles

When the sides of the triangle are extended, the original angles are the interior angles.

The angles that are adjacent (next to) the interior angles are the exterior angles.

Example 2: Finding Angle Measures in Right Triangles

One of the acute angles in a right triangle measures 2x°. What is the measure of the other acute angle?

Let the acute angles be A and B, with mA = 2x°.

mA + mB = 90°

2x+ mB = 90

Substitute 2x for mA.

mB = (90 – 2x)°

Subtract 2x from both sides.

Example 3: Applying the Exterior Angle Theorem

Find mB.

mA + mB = mBCD

Ext.  Thm.

Substitute 15 for mA, 2x + 3 for mB, and 5x – 60 for mBCD.

15 + 2x + 3= 5x – 60

2x + 18= 5x – 60

Simplify.

Subtract 2x and add 60 to both sides.

78 = 3x

26 = x

Divide by 3.

mB = 2x + 3 = 2(26) + 3 = 55°

mACD = mA + mB

Ext.  Thm.

Substitute 6z – 9 for mACD, 2z + 1 for mA, and 90 for mB.

6z – 9= 2z + 91

Simplify.

Subtract 2z and add 9 to both sides.

4z = 100

z = 25

Divide by 4.

mACD = 6z – 9 = 6(25) – 9 = 141°

Substitute (4x – 10.7) for JK and (2x + 6.3) for KL.

4x – 10.7 = 2x + 6.3

Add 10.7 and subtract 2x from both sides.

2x = 17.0

x = 8.5

Divide both sides by 2.

4.1 Triangles and Angles

Example 3 Continued

Find the side lengths of JKL.

Step 2 Substitute 8.5 into the expressions to find the side lengths.

JK = 4x – 10.7

KL = 2x + 6.3

= 2(8.5) + 6.3 = 23.3

JL = 5x + 2
