Triangles Warm Up Lesson Presentation Lesson Quiz Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Do Now Classify each angle as acute, obtuse, or right acute 1. 2. obtuse 3. 4. If the perimeter is 47, find x and the lengths of the three sides. x = 5; 8; 16; 23 Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Objectives Classify triangles by their angle measures and side lengths. Use triangle classification to find angle measures and side lengths. Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Vocabulary acute triangle equiangular triangle right triangle obtuse triangle equilateral triangle isosceles triangle scalene triangle Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Recall that a triangle ( ) is a polygon with three sides. Triangles can be classified in two ways: by their angle measures or by their side lengths. Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles C A B AB, BC, and AC are the sides of A, B, C are the triangle's vertices.

When you look at a figure, you cannot assume segments are congruent based on appearance. They must be marked as congruent.

Each side of the triangle is 18 feet long. How many triangles can be formed from 420 feet of 7 steel beam? Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Activity #1 1 2 3 Triangle Angle-Sum Theorem: The sum of the measures of the interior angles of a triangle is 180˚. 21 3 Holt Geometry 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Activity #2 (alternative) 1 2 3 Holt Geometry 2 1 3 4 -1 Classifying Triangles Triangle Inequality Theorem The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side. The smallest angle is opposite the shortest side while the largest angle is opposite the longest side.
