 # Types of Triangles

As all of you know, there are different types of triangles, each with their own unique properties. So how do we actually differentiate them from one another? In today’s primary math tuition lesson with Miracle Learning Centre, we will be discussing the properties of three types of triangle, so stay focus!

First of all, we have Scalene. Scalene is a type of triangle that has unequal sides and angles. There is no special property or rule for the length of the sides of the angles. Secondly, we will discuss about the Isosceles triangle. Isosceles has two sides that are of equal length, and two angles that are of the same value. The equal angles are on the opposite of the two equal sides. Therefore, finding the value of the last remaining angle would be easy for an isosceles triangle! Lastly, we have the Equilateral triangle. Equilateral, special as it is, has all equal sides and each angle is equal to 60 degree by the angle sum property. The equilateral triangle is the easiest to solve so keep your eyes out for it during questions! Now let us discuss triangles with respect to angles. A right triangle is a triangle which consists of one right angle and two acute angles. So one angle is of 90 degree and the other two angles will measure less than 90 degrees.

Let us now talk about the Obtuse Triangle. This is a triangle with two acute angles and one obtuse angle. The acute angle is those angles which measure less than 90 degrees whereas the obtuse angle is the angle which measures above 90 degrees so it can be said that it is a combination of two acute angles and one obtuse angle.

An acute triangle is a triangle which consists of three acute angles. This is the triangle which consists of three angles all of below 90 degrees.

Now, after explaining the properties of the 3 types of triangle, we have come to the end of our primary math tuition lesson at Miracle Learning Centre.
