Triangle Resources

Here are some things you need to know about triangles:

Three Triangle Sides:  #1. The sum of the 2 shorter sides of a triangle must be more than                                                      the longest  side.

#2. If you know 2 side lengths of a triangle, the third side must be                                                      between  the difference (subtract) and sum (add) of those 2 sides.

The three angles of a triangles ALWAYS add up to 180 degrees.

Know the 6 types of triangles and how to find the measure of a missing angle.
