# Triangles

In geometry, an angle is formed by two rays or line segments that share a common endpoint, known as the vertex. Angles are measured in degrees and are fundamental to understanding geometric shapes, relationships, and transformations.

Key Concepts:

Vertex:

The common endpoint of the two rays or line segments forming the angle.

Arms:

The two rays or line segments that form the angle. These extend from the vertex.

Degree Measure:

Angles are measured in degrees, with a full circle being 360 degrees.

Types of Angles with Examples and Drawings:

Acute Angle:

An angle that measures less than 90 degrees.

Example: Angle ABC in the triangle is an acute angle.

Right Angle:

An angle that measures exactly 90 degrees.

Example: Angle XYZ in the square is a right angle.

Obtuse Angle:

An angle that measures more than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.

Example: Angle PQR in the triangle is an obtuse angle.

Straight Angle:

An angle that measures exactly 180 degrees, forming a straight line.

Example: Angle MNO forms a straight angle.

Reflex Angle:

An angle that measures more than 180 degrees but less than 360 degrees.

Example: Angle STU in the circle is a reflex angle.

Full Angle (Complete Angle):

An angle that measures 360 degrees, forming a complete circle.

Example: A full angle is formed around the center of a circle.

Adjacent Angles:

Two angles are adjacent if they share a common arm and vertex but have no common interior points.

Example: Angles PQR and RQS are adjacent.

These examples and drawings illustrate various types of angles, their measurements, and relationships. Understanding angles is essential for solving geometric problems, describing shapes, and analyzing spatial configurations.

Triangles in Geometry:

A triangle is a polygon with three sides, three vertices, and three angles. Triangles are fundamental geometric shapes and play a crucial role in geometry. They are classified based on side lengths and angle measures.

Classification of Triangles:

By Side Lengths:

Equilateral Triangle:

All three sides of an equilateral triangle are of equal length.

Example: In triangle ABC, AB = BC = AC.

Isosceles Triangle:

In an isosceles triangle, at least two sides are of equal length.

Example: In triangle DEF, DE = EF.

Scalene Triangle:

In a scalene triangle, all three sides have different lengths.

Example: Triangle GHI is scalene.

By Angle Measures:

Acute Triangle:

All three angles of an acute triangle are less than 90 degrees.

Example: Triangle JKL is acute-angled.

Right Triangle:

A right triangle has one angle measuring exactly 90 degrees.

Example: Triangle MNO is a right-angled triangle.

Obtuse Triangle:

In an obtuse triangle, one angle is greater than 90 degrees.

Example: Triangle PQR is an obtuse-angled triangle.

Special Cases:

Equiangular Triangle:

An equiangular triangle has all three angles equal.

Example: Triangle STU is equiangular.

Degenerate Triangle:

A degenerate triangle has collinear vertices, meaning the three vertices lie on the same straight line.

Example: In triangle VWX, the vertices are collinear.

Triangles are versatile geometric shapes with properties and classifications that are fundamental to understanding geometry. They are extensively used in various mathematical and scientific applications.
