Although, in general, triangles do not have special names for their sides, in right triangles, the sides are called the hypotenuse, the opposite side and the adjacent side. The names change depending on which angle is th...

A triangle with two equal sides is called an isosceles triangle. The angles opposite the equal sides in an isosceles triangle are also equal. The third, unequal side of an isosceles triangle is called the base of the tri...

When the lengths of all sides of a triangle are added, the result is called the perimeter of the triangle. In general, a perimeter is the distance of the curve that borders a lamina or a two-dimensional closed planar sur...
