If the 2 triangles are right triangles, which are congruent to slicing the rectangle on the diagonal, then arrange one on top of the rectangle, and the other to the side, so that the two hypotenuses are in line with each other. This will make a bigger right triangle, which is similar to the smaller right triangles - each side is double of the smaller triangles.
two right triangles = full rectangle That is - if you multiply height times base of a triangle, the area will be 1/2 of a rectangle having the same height, and a width the same as the triangle base.
there are 27 triangles in a triangle
By cutting off two of its corners which will leave you with 2 triangles and 1 pentagon.
2 small triangles 1 med. triangle 2 large triangles 1 parallelogram and a square
Picture a square. now make a line connecting the two diagonal points. If bh is the volume of the rectangle, then we only have half a rectangle for each right triangle giving 1/2 *bh or bh/2. For any other traingle put the base parallel to the ground. Make a perpendicular line to the ground then you have two parts of a triangle divided at a vertex. Each of the these parts has a right angle. Make a second triangle of the same size and if you turn it into the two triangle fromt he first triangle and cut it apart, you can manipulate it to make a rectangle. The two triangles are a rectangle which is bh. divide by two to get one triangle so 1/2*bh or bh/2
a BIG HUGE triangle i am in the 2ndgrade and i am 8 i am in glenarnden woods elem. in pgcps
You can make 6
1 triangle 1 pentagon and 2 trapezoids
there are 4 triangles and 1 rectangle in an rectangular pyramid
To make a triangle fold it diagonally vertex to vertex To make a rectangle fold it side to side To make an irregular pentagon fold over one corner without touching the opposite corner
There are 2 triangles in a square so the ratio to square and triangle is 2 to 1
