Pyramids, warning signs, shelf support structures, ice cream cones, tripod stands are some examples of triangle shapes in real life. Another important use of triangles is in the study of trigonometry which in turn has many diverse applications covering all fields from art to engineering and astronomy.
What about parallelograms? You see parallelograms everywhere!! Squares and rectangles are also special kind of parallelograms. They have all the properties of a parallelogram plus some additional properties!
Do you find math boring and want to make it more interesting? Or maybe you don’t seem to understand this topic at all or wished there was an easy and fun way to learn it! Then you are at the right place!
Today we all know about scalene, isosceles and equilateral triangles or we can differentiate between an obtuse, acute and right angled triangle. But mathematicians found it nearly impossible to categorise triangles for decades due to its innumerable properties. Though it looks like the simplest of all the polygons, it turn out that it is the most complex of all!
