### Angles, Triangles

TermDefinition
intersecting lines lines that cross at a point
vertical angles angles which are formed by intersecting lines and have equal measures
adjacent angles angles that are next to each other
supplementary angles angles whose measures have a sum of 180 degrees
complementary angles angles whose measures have a sum of 90 degrees
acute angle has a measure less than 90 degrees
obtuse angle has a measure more than 90 degrees, but less than 180 degrees
right angle has a measure of exactly 90 degrees
acute triangle a three sided shape with all angles measuring less than 90 degrees
right triangle a three sided shape with one angle measuring exactly 90 degrees
obtuse triangle a three sided shape with one angle measuring greater than 90 degrees
isosceles triangle a three sided shape with two congruent sides
equilateral triangle a three sided shape with all congruent sides
scalene triangle a three sided shape with all sides measuring different lengths
triangle inequality theorem Helps us to know if three sides will form a triangle. The sum of the two smaller sides, must be greater than the largest side.
No, 2 + 5 needs to be greater than the third side. Will sides of 2, 5, and 7 form a triangle?
No, 4 + 10 needs to be greater than the third side. Will sides of 4, 15, and 10 form a triangle?
Yes, 4 + 5 is greater than the third side. Will sides of 4, 5, and 6 form a triangle?
2<x<10 If two sides of a triangle are 6 and 4, give the range of values for the third side.
180 degrees What is the sum of all the measures of the angles of a triangle?
congruent having exactly the same shape, size or measure
5<x<11 If two sides of a triangle are 8 and 3, give the range of values for the third side.
15<x<55 If two sides of a triangle are 20 and 35, give the range of values for the third side.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
