CLASSIFYING TRIANGLES BY ANGLES

Classifying Triangles by Angles• ACUTE

• OBTUSE

• RIGHT

• EQUIANGULAR

ACUTE TRIANGLE

•All interior angles are acute (or have a measure less than 90°)

Interior Angle

Example of Acute Triangle

• Phineas’s head is an acute triangle because all interior angles measure less than 90°. This is easy to remember because Phineas is a ‘cute’ character!

EQUIANGULAR TRIANGLE

•All interior angles are congruent (exactly the same measure)

Interior Angle

•All interior angles ALWAYS measure 60° for an equiangular triangle

Examples of Equiangular Triangles

OBTUSE TRIANGLE

•ONE interior angle is obtuse (or has a measure greater than 90°)

Obtuse Angle

•The other two interior angles of an obtuse triangle ALWAYS are acute (or have a measure less than 90°)

Example of Obtuse Triangle

•Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s head is shaped like an obtuse triangle. This is easy to remember because he is an obtuse character. An obtuse character is one that is slow to learn or lacking insight.

RIGHT TRIANGLE

•ONE interior angle is a right angle (or has a measure equal to 90°)

Right Angle

•The other two angles of a right triangle are ALWAYS acute (have a measure less than 90°)

YOU TRY

CLASSIFYING TRIANGLES BY SIDES

Classifying Triangles by Sides

• EQUALATERAL

• ISOSCELES

• SCALENE

EQUILATERAL TRIANGLE

•All sides are congruent (exactly the same length)

•EQUILATERAL TRIANGLES ARE ALWAYS ALSO EQUIANGULAR

Examples of Equilateral Triangles

ISOSCELES TRIANGLE

•Two sides are congruent (exactly the same length)•The angle between the congruent sides is called

the VERTEX ANGLE

VERTEX

SCALENE TRIANGLE

•NO sides are congruent

YOU TRYGiven: Triangle ABC is equiangular triangle with side AB=3x-5 and side BC=2x-2. What are the lengths of the 3 sides?

A

B C

Step 1Realize that an equiangular triangle is ALWAYS an equilateral triangle an therefore ALL sides are CONGRUENT.

Step 2AB=BC3x-5=2x-2

Step 3Combine ‘x’ term3x-5=2x-23x-5-2x=2x-2x-21x-5=-2

Step 4Solve for x1x-5+5=-2+51x=3

Step 5Plug x into original equation to find length3x-53(3)-5=4
