## What defines an isosceles triangle?

Definition of isosceles triangle

mathematics. : **a triangle in which two sides have the same length**.

## What is the answer to isosceles triangle?

Correct answer:

An isosceles triangle has **one vertex angle and two congruent base angles**.

## Do isosceles triangles have equal angles?

**An isosceles triangle therefore has both two equal sides and two equal angles**. The name derives from the Greek iso (same) and skelos (leg). A triangle with all sides equal is called an equilateral triangle, and a triangle with no sides equal is called a scalene triangle.

## What do you call a triangle with 3 equal sides?

**An equilateral triangle**has three equal sides and angles. It will always have angles of 60° in each corner.

## Which two angles are equal in an isosceles triangle?

Two equal sides and two equal angles. The two equal sides of an isosceles triangle are called the legs and the angle between them is called the vertex angle or apex angle. **The side opposite the vertex angle is called the base and base angles** are equal.

## How many sides does an isosceles triangle?

**Only two sides are equal**) Equilateral triangle (All three sides are equal)

## How do you find the sides of an isosceles triangle?

**sqrt(A^2 – (B / 2)^2)**, where A is the altitude and B is the length of the base. For example, given an isosceles triangle with base length 6 and altitude 7, the leg lengths are: sqrt(7^2 + (6 / 2)^2) = sqrt(58) = 7.6.

## How do I find the angles of an isosceles triangle?

## Which two sides of isosceles are equal?

**the equal sides are called legs and the third side is called the base**. The angle included by the legs is called the vertex angle and the angles that have the base as one of their sides are called the base angles.

## What are the two features of an isosceles triangle?

**Two sides are congruent to each other**. The third side of an isosceles triangle which is unequal to the other two sides is called the base of the isosceles triangle. The two angles opposite to the equal sides are congruent to each other.

## What are the 3 main types of triangles?

**acute, right, and obtuse-angled triangle**. According to the length of sides, triangles can be classified into 3 categories i.e., Scalene, Isosceles, and Equilateral triangle.

## What are the 7 types of triangles?

**equilateral, right isosceles, obtuse isosceles, acute isosceles, right scalene, obtuse scalene, and acute scalene**.

## What do you call a triangle with no?

**scalene triangle**. A triangle with a right angle is called a right triangle. A triangle with three equal sides is called an equilateral triangle.

## How do you prove two isosceles triangles are congruent?

## How do you find two missing angles in an isosceles triangle?

## How do you find the base of an isosceles triangle with two sides?

## What is the shape of an isosceles?

## How do you tell if a triangle is isosceles by points?

**Steps to Coordinate Proof**

- plot the 3 points(optional)
- use the distance formula to calculate the side length of each side of the triangle.
- If any 2 sides have equal side lengths, then the triangle is isosceles.

## How do you find the third side of a triangle if two sides are given?

## How do you find the area of a isosceles triangle?

**Multiplying the height with the base and dividing it by 2**, results in the area of the isosceles triangle.
