Types Of Triangles Quiz Questions - Quiz

Quiz on the types of triangles.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    This type of triangle has one 90 degree angle.

    • A.

      Acute

    • B.

      Right

    • C.

      Obtuse

    Correct Answer
    B. Right
    Explanation
    A triangle with one 90 degree angle is called a right triangle. In a right triangle, one of the angles measures exactly 90 degrees, making it the largest angle in the triangle. The other two angles in a right triangle are acute angles, meaning they are less than 90 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is right.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A ________ triangle is one where all 3 angles measure less than 90 degrees.

    • A.

      Acute

    • B.

      Right

    • C.

      Obtuse

    Correct Answer
    A. Acute
    Explanation
    An acute triangle is a triangle where all three angles measure less than 90 degrees. This means that none of the angles in the triangle are right angles (90 degrees) or obtuse angles (greater than 90 degrees).

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A triangle where all sides are congruent is called

    • A.

      Scalene

    • B.

      Isosceles

    • C.

      Equilateral

    Correct Answer
    C. Equilateral
    Explanation
    An equilateral triangle is a triangle where all sides are congruent. This means that all three sides of the triangle have the same length. In contrast, a scalene triangle has no congruent sides, and an isosceles triangle has two congruent sides. Therefore, the correct answer is equilateral.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    An isosceles triangle has

    • A.

      No congruent sides

    • B.

      2 congruent sides

    • C.

      3 congruent sides

    Correct Answer
    B. 2 congruent sides
    Explanation
    An isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two congruent sides. This means that two sides of the triangle are of equal length, while the third side may be a different length. The two congruent sides are typically referred to as the legs of the triangle, while the third side is known as the base. This property of isosceles triangles allows for certain geometric properties and relationships to be derived and used in various mathematical calculations and proofs.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    All 3 interior angles of a triangle add up to

    • A.

      90 degrees

    • B.

      180 degrees

    • C.

      360 degrees

    Correct Answer
    B. 180 degrees
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 180 degrees because the sum of the interior angles of any triangle is always equal to 180 degrees. This is a fundamental property of triangles in Euclidean geometry. No matter the size or shape of the triangle, the sum of its three interior angles will always be 180 degrees.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A triangle with no congruent sides and 1 angle greater than 90 degrees would be called __________ _________

    • A.

      Obtuse scalene

    Correct Answer
    A. Obtuse scalene
    Explanation
    An obtuse scalene triangle is a triangle that has one angle greater than 90 degrees and no congruent sides.
