What is Acute Triangle?
Here are some examples of acute triangles.
Types of Acute Triangles
There are broadly three types of acute triangles:
|Equilateral Acute Triangle:||Isosceles Acute Triangle:||Scalene Acute Triangle:|
|All the interior angles of an equilateral acute triangle measure 60°. It is also known as an equiangular triangle.||Two angles of an isosceles acute triangle measure the same, just like its two sides.||All three sides and internal angles of a scalene acute triangle are unequal, that is, all angles measure less than 90 degrees.|
Area of an Acute Triangle
Area of a triangle = 1⁄2 Base X Height
Here AD is the height, and BC is the base. So, the area can be calculated by simply putting in the values in the above formula.
|Fun Facts about Acute Triangles:|
– The angles of an acute triangle add up to 180°, because of the Angle Sum Property.
– A triangle cannot be acute-angled and right-angled at the same time.
– A triangle cannot be obtuse-angled and acute-angled simultaneously.
Acute Triangles in Nature:
Acute triangles can be seen in a variety of forms. Here are some real-life examples of acute triangles:
