A triangle is a three-sided figure whose sides are straight lines. A point where two sides intersect is called a vertex of the triangle.

The sum of the angles of a triangle is $180\unit{\U{b0}}$. A triangle is acute if all its angles are less than $90\unit{\U{b0}}$, obtuse if one angle is greater than $90\unit{\U{b0}}$, and a right triangle if one angle is equal to $90\unit{\U{b0}}$.
