Solution :

 Measures of triangle Type triangle (i) 3 sides of equal length (e) Equilateral (ii) 2 sides of equal length (g) Isosceles (iii) All sides are of different length (a) Scalene (iv) 3 acute angles (f) Acute-angled (v) 1 right angle (d) Right angled (vi) 1 obtuse angle (c) Obtuse angled (vii) 1 right angle with two sides of equal length (b) Isosceles right angled

Question 3.
Name each of the following triangles in two different ways : (you may judge the nature of the angle by observation).

Solution :
(a) Acute-angled and isosceles.
(b) Right-angled and scalene.
(c) Obtuse-angled and isosceles.
(d) Right-angled and isosceles.
(e) Equilateral and acute-angled.
(f) Obtuse-angled and scalene.

Question 4.
Try to construct triangles using matchsticks. Some are shown here. Can you make a triangle with

(a) 3 matchsticks?
(b) 4 matchsticks?
(c) 5 matchsticks?
(d) 6 matchsticks?
(Remember you have to use all the available matchsticks in each case). Name the type of triangle in each case. If you cannot make a triangle, think of reasons for it.
Solution :
(a) Yes, an equilateral triangle.
(b) No, since the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is always greater than the length of the third side.
(c) Yes, an isosceles triangle.
(d) Yes, an equilateral triangle.
