Only equilateral triangles have all equal sides, also all the angles are 60 degrees. If two separate triangles have equal side lengths they are said to be congruent. They cannot be a different type of triangle except, possibly, in their orientation.

27, if they are all separate. Far fewer otherwise.

Basically when you have a 24 sided polygon you can split it up into 22 separate, non-overlapping triangles by drawing diagonals. Each triangle has 180 degrees, so the product, 22 times 180, gives you the sum of the interior angles of the 24 sided polygon.

Triangles, in many aspects, is our gods greatest invention. The way the triangle holds itself together, uniforms it as one whole instead of three separate pieces of objects. This is simply, how triangles have truly "formed" the earth. I LOVE MALLORY KIRSTEN FISCHER!

A single slash perpendicular to the line is used to show it is congruent. In other words, if two segments are congruent they would both have a single slash through them, but if you have multiple pairs, each separate pair would have its own unique number of slashes (1,2,3...).

If those are four sides of a quadrilateral, you would also need some additional information, for example some angle, or a diagonal. If you have a diagonal, you can separate your quadrilateral into two triangles, and use Heron's formula.

No, its a separate branch in the The QUadrilateral Hierarchy... its just trapezoid

A Triforce is one large triangle that is made of of 3 separate triangles. Each of the 3 triangles have a separate meaning with the top one being the Triforce of Power, the left one is the Triforce of wisdom and the right triangle is the Triforce of courage.

You tell me! It that supposed to be a homework question?

I get 9 triangle with fewer than 9 lines. Draw a square: ABCD (4 lines) Draw the diagonals AC, BD (2 lines) which meet at X in the centre. On a separate part of the page, draw triangle PQR (3 lines). That is 4 + 2 + 3 = 9 lines. The triangles are: ABC, BCD, CDA, DAB, AXB, BXC, CXD, DXA, and PQR 9 triangles with 9 lines. Could have done 13 triangles with 7 lines by drawing a line from A to BC.

A kite is different from a rhombus in a few ways: * Kites have two pairs of adjacent legs that are congruent, and each pair is a separate length; a rhombus has four congruent sides. * A kite and rhombus both have perpendicular diagonals, but in a kite, only the diagonal between the pairs of sides (the diagonal between two sides of different length) is bisected; the other is not. Also, the diagonals bisect all of the angles of a rhombus; only the angles in the middle of the pairs of sides (angles with two legs of equal length) are bisected. * Only the angles between the pairs of sides are congruent in a kite; a rhombus has 2 pairs of congruent opposite angles. You can also think of a rhombus as a combination between a kite and a parallelogram, the same way you can think of a square as a combination of a rectangle and a rhombus. Hope this helps!
