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 ( < 900
) is called an Acute-Angled Triangle or Acute Triangle.
Right Triangle :
A triangle whose one angle is a right angle ( = 900
), is called a Right-angled Triangle or Right Triangle.
A triangle can not have more than 1 right angle.
In ΔPQR, ∠P = 900
The remaining two angles in a triangle are acute angles.
Obtuse Triangle :
A triangle whose one angle is obtuse (≥900
) 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.
