Isosceles triangle Two sides equal

Scalene triangle All sides different

Classifying triangles by angles

Acute-angled triangle All angles acute

Obtuse-angled triangle One angle obtuse

Right-angled triangle One right angle

The angle sum of any triangle is 180°. The exterior angle of a triangle is the sum of the two interior opposite angles.

SOLUTION

a 68 + 41 + x = 180 (angle sum of a triangle) x = 180 – 68 – 41 x = 71

b 44 + 44 + n = 180 (angle sum of an isosceles triangle) n = 180 – 44 – 44 n = 92

c m = 52 + 46 (exterior angle of a triangle) m = 98

a x + 64 = 180 (co-interior angles on parallel lines) x = 180 – 64 x = 116

b v = 114 (opposite angles of a parallelogram)

c • = 121 (opposite angles of a kite) 121 + 121 + 34 + n = 360 (angle sum of a quadrilateral) n = 360 – 121 – 121 – 34 n = 84

Transformations8–03

WORDBANK transformation The process of moving or changing a shape, by translation, reflection or rotation.

translation The process of ‘sliding’ a shape, moving it up, down, left or right.

reflection The process of ‘flipping’ a shape, making it back-to-front like in a mirror.

rotation The process of ‘spinning’ a shape, around a point, tilting it sideways or upside-down

EXAMPLE 3 a This L-shape has been translated 3 units to the right.

b This L-shape has been reflected across the line AB.

A

B

c This L-shape has been rotated 90° clockwise about point O.

These two triangles are congruent. A

B C

Y Z

X

∠A matches ∠BX, ∠B matches ∠Z , ∠C matches ∠Y . We can write ‘ ≡ABC XZY ’ in matching order of the vertices, where ‘≡’ stands for ‘is congruent to’. Congruent figures can be formed by translation, reflection, rotation or a combination of them.

a Which transformation turns the first triangle into the second triangle?

b List the three pairs of matching angles.

c Copy and complete this congruence statement:  ≡ABC ___

SOLUTION

a Reflection

b ∠A = ∠X, ∠B = ∠Z, ∠C = ∠Y
