Types of Triangles on the basis of Angles




There are different types of triangles on the basis of angles, they are as follows :

Acute Triangle : A triangle whose all the angles are acute ( < 90 0 ) is called an Acute-Angled Triangle or Acute Triangle.

Right Triangle : A triangle whose one angle is a right angle ( = 90 0 ), is called a Right-angled Triangle or Right Triangle.
A triangle can not have more than 1 right angle.

In ΔPQR, ∠P = 90
0
Note : The remaining two angles in a triangle are acute angles.

Obtuse Triangle : A triangle whose one angle is obtuse (≥90 0 ) is called an Obtuse-Angled triangle or Obtuse Triangle.
A triangle can not have more than one obtuse angle .

In ΔDEF, ∠E is an obtuse angle and other two angles are acute angles.

1) If the measure of two angles is same then it is Isosceles Triangle.

2) If the measures of all the three angles are same then it is an Equilateral Triangle.
