In this article, we are going to learn about the simplest form of a polygon, a triangle. All polygons can be divided into triangles, or in other words, they are formed by combining two or more triangles. Thus, understanding the basic properties of a triangle and its types is essential.

Ancient mathematicians introduced the concept of lines to represent straight objects which had negligible width and depth. Considered as a breadth less length by Euclid, lines form the basis of Euclidean geometry. When two rays (part of a straight line) intersect each other in the same plane, they form an angle. The point of intersection

In Euclidean geometry, a quadrilateral is a four-sided 2D figure whose sum of internal angles is 360°. The word quadrilateral is derived from two Latin words ‘quadri’ and ‘latus’ meaning four and side respectively. Therefore, identifying the properties of quadrilaterals is important when trying to distinguish them from other polygons. So, what are the properties
