Definition Of Triangle In Geometry
Parts Of A Triangle
Below are the components of a triangle.
1. Basis: It is the horizontal part of the triangular.
3. Vertical AngleThis is the 3rd angle, opposite the base angle.
4. Vertex It is this point where the vertical angle is created.
5. attitude or height: This is the perpendicular distance that extends from an equilateral triangle to the vertex.
Types Of Triangles
Here are all the types of triangle you need to know.
This is a triangle that is characterized by one of its angles of 90deg
- Draw an imaginary line of length.
- Draw another line PQ parallel to PR.
- Draw a line from point Q to point P. Thus QPR = 90deg
- Join Q and R to form the hypotenuse.
Right Angled Triangle.
It is a triangle that is composed of three sides with three angles.
- Draw an horizontal line PR = 100mm/10cm using an Tee-square.
- Slide the tee below the line, then place the set square of 30deg/60deg onto it.
- Draw lines of 60deg at each of the ends at the meeting baseline Q.
- Join lines PQ and QR.
- Create a horizontal baseline CD equal to 50mm.
- With the points with C as your center, make use of your compass and draw two arcs having a radius of 70mm.
- Join the ends of the triangle to make a triangle.
This triangular shape has three angles, and the three sides aren’t equal.
Make a vertical line of PQ = 100mm
By using two different radii, PR = 30mm and QR = 70mm, draw two arcs so that they join at R
