Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

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 34º and 112º.  Which type of triangle is it?

 

Answer

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

180º - (34º + 112º) = 180º - 146º = 34º

 

So the triangle has angles 34º , 112º, 34º 

 

Two angles are equal so it is isosceles.
