Section B: understanding the properties of triangles: 

● The properties of triangles 
○ the longest side cannot be longer than sum of other two sides 
○ degenerate triangles - triangles with no area, a straight line 
○ triangle inequality theorem 
■ what is the largest/smallest possible length of a missing side?  
■ length of the missing side must be less than the sum of the other sides 
■ length of the missing side must be more than the di erence of the other 
○ Triangle sides  
■ line opposite the smallest angle is the smallest  
■ angle opposite smallest line is smallest angle

Section A: the properties of angles: 
Intersecting Lines  Vertical Angles  Adjacent Angles 
Lines that cross each other   
Angles that are next to each 
Angles opposite to each 
other, and share a common 
other are equal 

Perpendicular  Complementary Angles  Supplementary Angles 


Lines that intersect at 90°    Sum of the angles = 180° 
Sum of the angles = 90°   

Types of Angles  Vertex

Triangle Inequality Theorem  Smallest angle shows the shortest side 
In this case 51° is the smallest angle, 
therefore the line segment opposite 
AB will be the shortest. 
  75° is the largest angle, therefore 
  the line segment opposite AC will be 
The sum of the length of two  the longest. 
sides cannot be bigger than   
the other side.  This works the same the other way.
