You make a **hexagon**.

**Ans 2.**

With careful design of the size, shape and placement of the 6 triangles, you can produce : -

- any triangle, acute obtuse or scalene
- any quadrilateral, regular or irregular
- a regular hexagon
- an irregular hexagon
- an irregular octagon
- an irregular decagon
- an irregular dodecagon
- a huge variety of non-polygonal shapes.

### Given n points in the plane you draw all possible triangles whose vertices are any three of the given points Atleast how many of them are obtuse-angled triangles?

The least number of obtuse triangles, if all possible triangles
are drawn for n points in a plane, is zero.
If all the n points lie in a straight line, no triangles are
possible and so no obtuse triangles are able to be drawn; thus for
any number n, there is a possibility that no obtuse triangles can
be drawn, so the least possible number of obtuse triangles drawn is
zero.

### How many triangles can be made from five points?

The geometric shape formed by connecting the perimeter of five
points is a pentagon. Its basic construction is that of three
triangles with one triangle in the middle sharing two of its sides
with a base line of the other two triangles.
The maximum number of triangles that can be created, if you
count only those triangles that are formed by line segments between
each of the five points, are ten (10).

### How many triangles are there within a nonagon?

to calculate the number of possible triangles within a nonagon,
one must use combinatorics. Understand that at first you have to
pick the first vertex from 9 points, then the second from eight
other possible points, and the third from 7 possible points. And
finally that by this process any three vertices could be picked in
6 different orders. triangles possible are: 9*8*7/6 = 84 possible
