1 How Do You Measure a Triangle? Examples 1. A triangle is a three-sided polygon. A polygon is a closed figure in a plane that is made up of segments called sides that intersect only at their endpoints, called vertices.. Triangle ABC, written ABC, has the following parts. Sides: AB, BC, CA Vertices: A, B, C Angles: BAC or A, ABC or B, BCA or C 3. The side opposite A is BC. The angle opposite AB is C, What side is opposite B? AC. 4. One way of classifying triangles is by their angles. All triangles have at least two acute angles, but the third angle may be acute, right, or obtuse. A triangle can be classified using the third angle. In an acute triangle, all the angles are acute. In an obtuse triangle, one angle is obtuse. In a right triangle, one angle is a right angle. 5. When all of the angles of a triangle are congruent, the triangle is equiangular.

2 6. Provide students with strips of heavy paper and paper fasteners. Ask them to use these to investigate the following: a. Can a triangle include a right angle and an obtuse angle? No b. Can a triangle include two obtuse angles? No c. If a triangle includes a right angle, what must be true of the other angles? Both acute 7. Some parts of a right triangle have special names. In right triangle RST, RT, the side opposite the right angle, is called the hypotenuse. The other two sides, RS and ST, are called the legs. 8. Example The incline shown at the right is a right triangle. If the vertices B, L, and T are labeled as shown, name the angles, the right angle, the hypotenuse, the legs, the side opposite B, and the angle opposite BL. The angles are B, T, and L. The right angle is L. The hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle, BT. The legs are LB and LT. The side opposite B is LT. The angle opposite BL is T. 9. Triangles can also be classified according to the number of congruent sides. The slashes on the sides of a triangle mean those sides are congruent. No two sides of a scalene triangle are congruent. At least two sides of an isosceles triangle are congruent. All the sides of an equilateral triangle are congruent. 10. Like the right triangle, the parts of an isosceles triangle have special names. The congruent sides are called legs. The angle formed by the legs is the vertex angle, and the other two angles are base angles. The base is the side opposite the vertex angle.

3 11. Example Triangle ABC is an isosceles triangle. A is the vertex angle, AB = 4x 14 and AC = x Find the length of the legs. If A is the vertex angle, then BC is the base angle and AB and AC are the legs. So, AB = AC. Solve the following equation. AB = AC 4x 14 = x + 10 Substitution property of equality 3x = 4 Addition property of equality x = 8 If x = 8, then AB = 4(8) 14 or 18, and AC = (8) + 10 or 18. The legs of isosceles ABC are 18 units long. Division property of equality 1. Example Triangle PQR is an equilateral triangle. One side measures x + 5 and another side measures x Find the length of each side. If PQR is equilateral, then each side is congruent. Solve the following equation. x + 5 = x + 35 x + 5 = 35 x = 30 Substitution property of equality Subtraction property of equality If x = 30, then (30) + 5 is 65. The length of each side is 65. Subtraction property of equality 13. Example Given MNP with vertices M(, 4), N ( 3, 1), and P(1, 6), use the distance formula to prove MNP is scalene. According to the distance formula, the distance between (x 1, y 1 ) and (x, y ) is ( x x ) + ( y y units. MN = ( ( 3)) + ( 4 1) MN = or 5 1 1) NP = ( 3 1) + (1 6) NP = Since no two sides have the same length, the triangle is scalene. MP = ( 1) + ( 4 6) MP =

4 14. Angle Sum Theorem The sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle is 180. In order to prove the angle sum theorem, you need to draw an auxiliary line. An auxiliary line is a line or line segment added to a diagram to help in a proof. These are shown as dashed lines in the diagram. Be sure that it is possible to draw any auxiliary lines that you use. Given: PQR Prove: m 1 + m + m 3 = 180 Statements PQR Draw AB through R parallel to PQ 4 and PRB form a linear pair 4 and PRB are supplementary 4 and PRB = and 3 = m PRB m 4 + m 5 + m 3 = 180 m 1 = m 4 m = m 5 m 1 + m + m 3 = 180 Reasons Given Parallel Postulate Definition of linear pair If s form a linear pair, they are supplementary Definition of supplementary angles Angle addition postulate Substitution property of equality If lines are cut by a transversal, alternate interior s are Substitution property of equality 15. Example The roof support of a building is shaped like a triangle. Two angles each have a measure of 5. Find the measure of the third angle. Label the vertices of the triangle P, Q, and R. Then, m P = 5 and m Q = 5. Since the sum of the angles measure is 180, we can write the equation below. Angle sum theorem m p + m Q + m R = m R = 180 Substitution property of equality m R = 130 Subtraction property of equality The measure of the third angle is Example A surveyor has drawn a triangle on a map. One angle measures 4 and the other measures 53. Find the measure of the third angle x = x = 180 x = 85

5 17. Given: A D and B E Prove: C F Statements A D and B E m A = m D and m B = m E m A + m B + m C = 180 m D + m E + m F = 180 m A + m B + m C = m D + m E + m F m C = F C F Reasons Given Definition of congruent angles The sum of the s in a is 180 o Substitution property of equality Subtraction property of equality Definition of congruent angles 18. Suppose you are picking vegetables from a garden and started walking from a certain point on a north-south path. You walked at an angle of 60 o northeast for 800 feet, turned directly south and walked 400 feet, and then turned 90 o clockwise and walked back to the same place where you started. A diagram of your path is shown at the right. The north/south lines are parallel, forming congruent alternate interior angles. By the supplement theorem, the angle formed when you turned measures 10 o. The 10 o and 90 o angles formed when you turned are called exterior angles of the triangle. An exterior angle is formed by one side of a triangle and another side extended. The interior angles of the triangle not adjacent to a given exterior angle are called remote interior angles of the triangle. In the figure at the fight, BCD is an exterior angle with A and B as its remote interior angles. 19. How are the measure of an exterior angle and its remote interior angles are related? m 1 + m + m 3 = 180 m 1 + m 4 = 180 m 1 + m + m 3 = m 1 + m 4 m + m 3 = m 4 Angle sum theorem Supplement theorem Have students make a conjecture about the relationship. Substitution property of equality Subtraction property of equality

6 0. Exterior Angle Theorem The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the two remote interior angles. 1. Example Find the measure of each number angle in the figure if RK SL and RS SL. By the exterior angle theorem, m JRK + m 4 = m MKR. m KRL + m 4 = m MKR 40 + m 4 = 115 m 4 = 75 By the Angle sum theorem, m KRL + m 3 + m 4 = 180 m KRL + m 3 + m 4 = m = 180 m 3 = 65 Since RK SL, and 5 and KRL are alternate interior angles, m 5 = m KRL m 5 = 40 RS SL and perpendicular lines form right angles. Therefore, m 1 = 90. m 1 + m 5 + m = m = 180 m = 50 Therefore, m 1 = 90, m = 50, m 3 = 65, m 4 = 75, and m 5 = 40.. A statement that can easily be proven using a theorem is called a corollary of that theorem. A corollary, just like a theorem, can be used as a reason of that proof.

7 3. Corollary The acute angles of a right triangle are complementary. Given: RST, R is a right angle. Prove: S and T are complementary Statements Reasons R is a right angle. Given m R + m S + m T = 180 Angle sum theorem m R = 90 Definition of right angle 90 + m S + m T = 180 Substitution property of equality m S + m T = 90 Subtraction property of equality S and T are complementary Definition of complementary angles 4. Corollary There can be a most one right or obtuse angle in a triangle In MNO, M is a right angle. m M is a right angle. m M + m N + m O = 180 m M = 90, so m N + m O = 90 If N were a right angle, then m O = 0. But that is impossible, so there cannot be two right angles in a triangle. In PQR, P is obtuse. So m P > 90. m P + m Q + m R = 180 It must be that m Q + m R < 90. So Q and R must be acute.
