Classification of triangles

Triangle classification according to their sides

Equilateral triangle

Equilateral triangles are those that have the same three sides, and because they have the same three sides, they also have the same three angles.

equilateral-triangle
Equilateral triangle

The \Delta ABC is equilateral.

\overline{AB} = \overline{BC} = \overline{AC}

Isosceles triangle

Isosceles triangles are those that have two of their sides equal.

isosceles-triangle
Isosceles triangle

The \Delta DEF is isosceles.

\overline{ED} = \overline{DF}

Because it has two of its sides equal, it has two of its angles equally. The opposite angle of the side DF is equal to the opposite angle of the side DE:

\measuredangle E = \measuredangle F

Scalene triangle

Scale triangles are those that have their three sides unequal.

scalene-triangle

The \Delta GHI is scalene.

\overline{GH} \neq \overline{HI} \neq \overline{IG}

Classification of triangles according to their angles

Right triangle

Right triangles are those that have a right angle. The hypotenuse is the opposite side to the right angle and they are legs on the sides that form the right angle.

right-triangle
Right triangle

The \Delta ABC is rectangle.

\measuredangle C  = 90^{\text{o}}

Acute angle triangle

The acute-angled triangles are those that have acute their three angles.

acute-triangle-1
Acute-angle triangle

The \Delta DEF is acute-angle.

The \measuredangle D, the \measuredangle E and the \measuredangle F are acute.

Equiangular triangle

It is called equiangular triangle to those that have equal their angles, and yes, it is the equilateral triangle.

equiangular-triangle
Equiangular triangle

The \Delta GHI is equiangular.

\measuredangle G = \measuredangle H = \measuredangle I

Obtuse triangle

The obtuse triangles are those that have an obtuse angle. The obtuse angle is that angle that measures more than 90 ° and less than 180 °.

obtuse-triangle
Obtuse triangle

The \Delta JKL is an obtuse triangle.

90^{\text{o}} < \measuredangle K < 180^{\text{o}}

Oblique angle triangle

They are all triangle that are not rectangles. Oblique angle means all that angle that is not right.
