### Grade 6 - Mathematics9.19 Classifying Triangles by Angles

#### Classification of triangles based on angles

1. Acute angled triangle:

• If all the angles of a triangle are acute angles, then it is called an acute angled triangle.

2. Right angled triangle:
• A triangle in which one of the angles is a right angle is called a right angled triangle.

• In a right angled triangle, the side opposite to the right angle is called its hypotenuse.

3. Obtuse angled triangle:
• A triangle containing an obtuse angle is called an obtuse angled triangle.

Directions: Read the above properties of triangles and answer the following questions:
1. Illustrate each of the above properties by drawing a triangle.
2. Write in your own words, how to classify triangles according to their angles.
