Right Triangle

Triangle with one 90 degree angle


Obtuse triangle

Triangle with one obtuse angle


Equiangular Triangle

A triangle with 3 angles congruent (each meases 60 degrees)


Type of angles formed when lines intersect.

Vertical angles


What the congruent sides of an isosceles triangle are called.

legs

What makes a trapezoid a trapezoid?

a. exactly one pair of parallel sides
b. Parallel sides ARE NOT congruent. c. 2 sets of consecutive angles are supplementary d. non parallel sides called legs e. parallel sides called bases 

What makes an isosceles trapezoid?

a. everything that makes a trapezoid a trapezoid.
b. diagonals are congruent. c. Base angles are congruent d. legs are congruent. 

What are the three undefined terms in geometry?

point line and plane


Why are the 3 undefined terms considered undefined?

Because the definitions are circular, it really isn't possilbe to define them without using the words in the definitions.


point

has no size, but can be represented by a dot
