There are different types of triangles on the basis of sides and measures of their angles.

Type of Triangles on the basis of Sides

Scalene Triangle : A triangle whose all sides of different lengths is called Scalene Triangle. In the above figure we can see that AB ≠ BC ≠ AC.

Isosceles Triangle : A triangle whose any two sides are equal is called an Isosceles Triangle. Here, in the ΔABC, two sides are equal, AB = AC.

Equilateral Triangle : A triangle whose all sides are equal to one another, is called an Equilateral Triangle. In the ΔABC, all the three sides are equal, AB = BC = AC
Practice
