(vii) \(\rightarrow \) Isosceles right angled triangle

- Q.1 Name the types of following triangles: (a) Triangle with lengths of sides 7 cm, 8 cm and 9 cm. (b) \(\triangle \) ABC with AB = 8.7 cm, AC = 7 cm and BC = 6 cm. (c) \(\triangle \)PQR such that PQ = QR = PR = 5 cm. (d) \(\triangle \)DEF with \(\angle \)D = 90° (e) \(\triangle \)XYZ with \(\angle \)Y = 90° and XY = YZ. (f) \(\triangle \)LMN with \(\angle \)L = 30°, ?M = 70° and ?N = 80°.
- Q.3 Name each of the following triangles in two different ways: (you may judge the nature of the angle by observation)
- Q.4 Try to construct triangles using match sticks. Some are shown here. Can you make a triangle with (a) 3 matchsticks? (b) 4 matchsticks? (c) 5 matchsticks? (d) 6 matchsticks? (Remember you have to use all the available matchsticks in each case) Name the type of triangle in each case. If you cannot make a triangle, think of reasons for it
