### How can a triangle be classified in two ways?

You can classify a triangle by its sides, or by its
angles.
To classify a triangle by its sides:
1- A triangle with three sides that are equal in length is
called an equilateral triangle.
2- A triangle with two sides of the same length and one
different is called an isosceles triangle. 3- A triangle
with no sides of equal length is called a scalene triangle.
To classify a triangle by its angles: 1- A triangle with
three angles that are greater than 0 and less than 90 degrees is
called an acute triangle.
2- A triangle with one angle that is 90 degrees exactly is
called a right angle triangle.
3- A triangle with one angle that is greater than 90 degrees is
called an obtuse triangle.
