#1~ One VERTICAL line straight in the middle of the Equilateral Triangle.

The geometric shape formed by connecting the perimeter of five points is a pentagon. Its basic construction is that of three triangles with one triangle in the middle sharing two of its sides with a base line of the other two triangles. The maximum number of triangles that can be created, if you count only those triangles that are formed by line segments between each of the five points, are ten (10).

Since the "slices" of an equilateral hexagon are equilateral triangles, the Pythagorean theorem will solve this problem: A squared plus B squared equals C squared, where A and B are the sides at right angle to each other and C is the hypoteneuse (long side). Slice a 10 inch tall equilateral triangle down the middle. The height A is 10 inches; the base B (1/2 of A) is 5 inches. 10 squared equals 100; 5 squared equals 25. Therefore, the length of each side of the equilateral triangle is the square root of 125, or approximately 11.18 inches. This is also the length of the sides of the hexagon in question.

yes,take 2 big triangles.then,take 2 small triangles and a square. first on the right put a triangle facing like a hill.on the left do it the opposite way then put the square in the middle of the 2 triangles and take the 2 small triangles and put them in the middle 2

cut it down the middle

technically, triangle classes have a bulls-eye type name graph, with equilateral triangles in the middle, then isosceles, then scalene, so technically, some scalene triangles are isosceles and some are equilateral, but not all are.

Make a Triangular Pyramid. Place three flat to form the first triangle, then make it into a pyramid with the remaining three. (It's a tetrahedron - a four-sided figure, and all sides are equilateral triangles.)

Make an equilateral triangle(all same sides) with 3 lines and put the 4th on right through the middle and you have 2 right angle triangles.

Yes. An equilateral triangle can be symmetrical because cut it straight down the middle and it will be symmertrical.

All you have to use is the five triangles. The two large triangles make a square in the middle, the two small triangles make a large triangle on one side and the middle triangle on the other side.

octagon is 8 triangles points in the middle

The geometric shape formed by connecting the perimeter of five points is a pentagon. Its basic construction is that of three triangles with one triangle in the middle sharing two of its sides with a base line of the other two triangles.

Cut it exactly down the middle, along its height, and put one piece aside. The remaining side is a right triangle. The slanting side of the right triangle is a whole side of the original equilateral triangle, the bottom is half of an original side, and the vertical line is the height of the original triangle. Now you have a right triangle and you know the lengths of two of its sides, so you use what you know about right triangles to find the length of the third side, which is the height of the original equilateral triangle. It turns out to be 0.866 times the side of the equilateral triangle. (rounded) Technically, that's (1/2) x (side) x sqrt(3)

Three. One cutting across from every corner of the triangle through the middle oftheside of the triangle opposing that corner.

This is known as the Sierpinski triangle.

An octahedron is a polyhedron with eight faces. A regular octahedron can be composed of eight equilateral triangles, four forming each half, and meeting in the middle at a square. Imagine a pyramid, with a square base. Rising up from each edge is an equilateral triangle that meets the other four triangles at the apex. Now, turn the pyramid over and add four more triangles to the other side the same way. You now have an octahedron. For more information, and a rotating picture, please see the related link below.
