### triangle

a polygon with three sides

### scalene

no sides are congruent

### isoscles

two sides are congruent

### equilateral

all sides are congruent

### acute triangle

three acute angles

one right angle

### obtuse triangle

one obtuse angles

### equilangular triangle

three congruent angles

### triangle sum theorm

the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees

### exterior angles theorm

the measure of an exterior angles of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the two nonadjacent interior angles

### collary to a theorm

a statement that can be proved easily using a theorm

### collary to the triangle sum theorm

the acute angles of a right angle are complementary

### third angles congruence theorm

if two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the third angles are congruent

### SSS congruence postulate

if three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent

### SAS congruence postulate

If two sides of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of a second triange, then the triangles are congruent

### HL congruence postulate

if the hypotenuse and leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and leg of a second right triangle, then the two triangles are congruent

### ASA congruence postulate

if two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of a second triangle, then the triangles are congruent

### AAS congruence theorm

if two angles and the non included side f only riangle are congruent to two angles and the corresponding non included side of a second triange, the the triangles are congruent
