Classifying Triangles & Angles of Triangles

Sections 4-1 & 4-2

A triangle is the figure formed by 3 segments joining 3 noncollinear points. Each of the 3 points is a vertex. The segments are the sides.

Classifying Triangles by Sides

Scalene Triangle – no sides congruent

Isosceles Triangle – At least 2 sides congruent

Equilateral Triangle – All sides congruent

Classifying Triangles by Angles

Right – 1 right angle

Equiangular – all angles congruent

Acute – 3 acute angles

Obtuse – one obtuse angle

Angle Sum Theorem

The sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle is 180.

Third Angle Theorem

If 2 angles of one triangle are congruent to 2 angles of another triangle, then the third angles are congruent.

Corollariesstatements that can be easily proved using a theorem

Each angle of an equiangular triangle has measure 60.

In a triangle, there an be at most one right angle or obtuse angle.

The acute angles of a right triangle are complementary.

Exterior Angle TheoremThe measure of an exterior angle of a

triangle equals the sum of the measures of the 2 remote interior angles.
