Question Answer
parallel lines Parallel lines are always the same distance apart, and will never touch. 90b8479c-8d2b-4f7a-b3ab-8a65f4cfeb0e.jpg (image/jpg)
perpendicular lines Perpendicular lines meet or cross to form right (90 degree) angles. 8171267d-d884-46ce-be4c-9724901f5c95.jpg (image/jpg)
straight angle Straight angles are also known as straight lines, and measure 180 degrees. bd9ad627-1255-4f92-ad16-94474e2a0009.png (image/png)
acute angle An acute angle measures more than 0 degrees, but less than 90 degrees. ff5c6688-fa37-4d14-8039-3efadefba9f7.png (image/png)
obtuse angle An obtuse angles measures more than 90 degrees, but less than 180 degrees.
right angle A right angle measures exactly 90 degrees. Right angles are sometimes called "square corners", because they look like the corners of a square or a rectangle.
triangle A triangle is a polygon with exactly three sides and three angles.
acute triangle An acute triangle is a triangle whose three angles are ALL acute angles (less than 90 degrees).
obtuse triangle A triangle with exactly ONE obtuse angle. (More than one obtuse angle would mean the three angles could not add up to 180 degrees.)
right triangle A triangle with exactly ONE right angle. (More than one right angle would mean the three angles could not add up to 180 degrees.)
equilateral triangle A triangle whose three sides are ALL the same length. (Also called an equiangular triangle, because the three angles would also have equal measures.)
isosceles triangle A triangle with two (or three) sides being equal in length.
scalene triangle A triangle whose three sides all have different lengths.
quadrilateral A polygon having exactly four sides and four angles.
parallelogram A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are both congruent (equal in length) and parallel. Rectangles, squares, and rhombuses (rhombi) are all special types of parallelograms.
rectangle A parallelogram whose four angles are all right angles.
rhombus A parallelogram whose four sides are all congruent.
square A parallelogram whose four sides are all congruent (making it also a rhombus) and whose four angles are all right angles (making it a rectangle).
trapezoid A quadrilateral with EXACTLY ONE pair of parallel sides - the other pair is NOT parallel, so a trapezoid is not a parallelogram.
pentagon A polygon with 5 sides and 5 angles.
hexagon A polygon with 6 sides and 6 angles.
