Base Angles in Isosceles Trapezoids The two angles along the same base in an isosceles triangle will be congruent. Thus, this creates two pairs of congruent angles—one pair along each base. The base angles of an isosceles trapezoid are congruent.

In an isosceles triangle that has exactly two equal sides, 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.

The Isosceles Triangle Theorem states: If two sides of a triangle are congruent, then angles opposite those sides are congruent.

In an isosceles triangle, the two equal sides are called legs, and the remaining side is called the base. The angle opposite the base is called the vertex angle, and the point associated with that angle is called the apex. The two equal angles are called the isosceles angles.

Properties of Isosceles Triangles Of course, the main property of isosceles triangles is their two congruent sides. In addition, all isosceles triangles also have congruent base angles. This property holds true for all isosceles triangles, no matter which direction their apexes point.

An Isosceles Right Triangle is a right triangle that consists of two equal length legs. Since the two legs of the right triangle are equal in length, the corresponding angles would also be congruent. Thus, in an isosceles right triangle, two legs and the two acute angles are congruent.

An isosceles right triangle is an isosceles triangle and a right triangle. This means that it has two congruent sides and one right angle. Therefore, the two congruent sides must be the legs. Therefore, we only need one of the three lengths to determine the other two lengths of the sides of an isosceles right triangle.

Given that 10 cm is the length of the equal sides. Therefore area of the triangle = ½×a² = ½×10² = ½×10×10 = ½×100 = 50 cm.

Note that since the right triangle is isosceles, then the angles at the base are equal. (Theorem 3.) Therefore each of those acute angles is 45°. (For the definition of measuring angles by “degrees,” see Topic 12.)

An isosceles triangle is a special triangle due to the values of its angles. These triangles are referred to as triangles and their side lengths follow a specific pattern that states that one can calculate the length of the legs of an isoceles triangle by dividing the length of the hypotenuse by the square root of 2.

where c is the hypotenuse and a is the leg. So for an isosceles right triangle with side length a , the hypotenuse has a length of a√2 . Similarly, if the hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle has length of a , the legs have a length of a√2ora√22 each.

Interior angles So the two base angles must add up to 180-40, or 140°. Since the two base angles are congruent (same measure), they are each 70°.

An acute triangle has all angles measuring less than 90º. Note: It is possible for an acute triangle to also be scalene, isosceles, or equilateral.

The right triangle has one 90 degree angle and two acute (< 90 degree) angles. Since the sum of the angles of a triangle is always 180 degrees… The two sides of the triangle that are by the right angle are called the legs… and the side opposite of the right angle is called the hypotenuse.

Triangles can also be classified by their angles. In an acute triangle all three angles are acute (less than 90 degrees). A right triangle contains one right angle and two acute angles. And an obtuse triangle contains one obtuse angle (greater than 90 degrees) and two acute angles.

Right angle triangle. One of the way by which we can form a triangle, is by forming it with 2 acute angles and 1 right angle.

A triangle cannot be formed with one right angle, one acute angle, one obtuse angle.
