" I AM A RIGHT ANGLE TRIANGLE "

>> Today in Math class we learned all about Right angle triangles. We learned how to find the area of a triangle and we also learned all about the names of each side. There was a lot of information we took in. For example One whole circle is 360 °. You can split that up into four quandrants and get four 90° angles. The hypotenuse is always the line opposite of the right angle. The two legs are the lines that meet up to form the 90° angle. We also learned that to find the area of a triangle you go A X B /2. The reason for that is because to find out the area fo a rectangle would be A X B ( width multiplied by length) But a right triangle is only half of a rectangle. So A x B = the area of a rectangle A x B / 2 equals the area of a triangle simple as that :)
