Triangles:

                   

  • A triangle is a three-sided polygon. In fact, it is the polygon with the least number of sides.

  • A triangle is a closed figure made by joining three non-collinear points by line segments. 
  • It has three sides, three angles, and three vertices.

  • The vertices, sides and angles of a triangle are called the parts of the triangle.

  • We write ∆ABC instead of writing "Triangle ABC".

  • ‘Length of line segment AB’ is written as l(AB).

  • The three sides of the triangle are `bar"AB", bar"BC", and bar"CA"`.
    The three angles are ∠BAC, ∠BCA, and ∠ABC.
    The points A, B, and C are called the vertices of the triangle.
  • Being a polygon, a triangle has an exterior and an interior.

  • P is in the interior of the triangle, R is in the exterior and Q on the triangle.
