Math Video Transcript

In this lesson, we will learn about acu. triangles.

For a triangle to be an acu. triangle, all the internal angles, must be less than 90 degrees.

Now, let's move this vertex, and see what happens..

Notice that, when this angle becomes 90 degrees, this triangle, is not an acu. triangle.

Next, as we continue to move this vertex, this angle is now greater than 90 degrees.

Hence, this triangle is not an acu. triangle.

Let's see some examples.

Is this an acu. triangle?

Since all the internal angles are less than 90 degrees, this is an acu. triangle.

How about this triangle?

Now, observe that, this angle is 90 degrees.

Since this angle is not less than 90 degrees, it is not an acu. triangle.

Last example, is this an acu. triangle?

Notice that, this angle is 110 degrees, which is greater than 90 degrees.

Therefore, this is not an acu. triangle.

That is all for this lesson.
