The three interior angles in a triangle must add up to 180o, and a reflex angle is one that is bigger than 180o. This makes it impossible for a triangle to have any interior reflex angles.

A heptagon. It can have a reflex interior angle, a triangle cannot.

Why can't triangles have a reflex angle?

A reflex angle is between 180° and 360°. The sum of the 3 angles in a triangle is 180°, so the largest possible angle in a triangle is slightly less than 180°

Would a upside down right angle be called a reflex angle?

No. A triangle is never an angle, no matter what position it's in.If you remove one of the sides of a triangle, then you have an angle.If you have a right angle (a corner), then the other side of it is certainlya reflex angle.

Is it possible to draw a triange with a reflex angle?

If you mean the reflex angle is an interior angle of the triangle then no. The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180o, which mean all the angles must be less than 180o, but a reflex angle is greater than 180o and so cannot be one of these angles.

Answer Reflex Angle

How do you make a triangle with a reflex angle?

You can't. It is physically impossible as a triangle has 180 degrees, so all it's angles must add up to 180, and a reflex angle is an angle more than 180 degrees, therefore, cannot be done.
