Naming Triangles

Triangles are named by using its vertices.

For example, we can call the following triangle:

Classifying Triangles by Sides

Scalene:

A triangle in which all 3 sides are different lengths.

AC = 3.47 cm

AB = 3.47 cm

AB = 3.02 cm

AC = 3.15 cm

Isosceles:

A triangle in which at least 2 sides are equal.

• A triangle in which all 3 sides are equal.

GI = 3.70 cm

GH = 3.70 cm

Classifying Triangles by Angles

Acute:

Obtuse:

• A triangle in which one and only one angle is greater than 90˚& less than 180˚

Right:

• A triangle in which one and only one angle is 90˚

Equiangular:

• A triangle in which all 3 angles are the same measure.

Triangle Sum:

The sum of the interior angles in a triangle is 180˚.

Third Angle of a Triangle:

If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of a second triangle, then the third angles of the triangles are congruent.

Fact # 1:

Each angle in an equiangular triangle is 60˚.

Fact # 2:

Acute angles in a right triangle are complementary.

There can be at most one right or obtuse angle in a triangle.

Fact # 3:

Exterior Angle -

An angle formed by one side of a triangle and the extension of another side of the triangle.

Remote Interior Angles –

Interior angles that are not adjacent to the exterior angle of the triangle.

The measure of the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the remote interior angles.

Example:

Find the mA.

C

3x - 22 = x + 80

3x – x = 80 + 22

2x = 102

mA = x = 51°
