  # Geometry: Name the Triangle

In this worksheet, students work out the missing angle in a triangle in order to identify the type of triangle. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Geometry: Properties of Shapes

Curriculum subtopic:   Compare Geometric Shapes

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

Remember that the interior angles of a triangle add up to 180º.

right-angled triangle has one 90º angle.

An isosceles triangle has two equal angles.

An equilateral triangle has three equal angles, each of size 60º

Example

Two of the angles in a triangle are 35º and 110º.  Which type of triangle is it?

We must first work out the third angle which will be:

180º - (35º + 110º) = 180º - 145º = 35º

So the triangle has angles 35º , 110º, 35º

Two angles are equal so it is isosceles.
