## Triangle

### Equilateral

An equilateral triangle has the same degree of angles and all sides are the same length

### ISOSCLES

An isoscles triangle has 2 and only 2 sides of equal length

### Right Trianlge

A right triangle has one 90 degree angle. The relation between the sides and angles of a right triangle is the basis for trigonometry

### Angle measures

Angles can be either straight, right, acute or obtuse. An angle is a fraction of a circle where the whole circle is 360°. A straight angle is the same as half the circle and is 180° whereas a right angle is a quarter of a circle and is 90°. You measure the size of an angle with a protractor.

### Congruence

Two shapes are congruent if its the same size and shape and in other words the shapes have the same degree angles and same length of sides.

### Orthocenter

Orthocenter: Where the triangle's three altitudes intersect. The altitude of a triangle is a segment from a vertex of the triangle to the opposite side. The opposite side is the base

### Circumcenter

The circumcenter is the center of a triangle's circumcircle. It can be found as the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors.

### Centroid

A centroid of a triangle is the point where the three medians of the triangle meet. A median of a triangle is a line segment from one vertex to the mid point on the opposite side of the triangle.

### INCENTER

The incenter is always inside the triangle. It is constructed by taking the intersection of the angle bisectors of the three vertices of the triangle.
