Hello, Pit. My Pre-calc teacher asked us to find out what an example of a triangle with 2 right angles is. Any ideas? Thanks

Edit: Answer=

The Pit needs a Math thread this is like the 5th math question thread.

I thought the same thing to be honest

I don't think there can be two right angles in a triangle unless you divide by zero!!

edit; beaten to it.

2 right angles = 180 degrees.

A triangle has 3 sides and equals 180 degrees.

It doesn't work.

draw an equlateral or any non right triangle and drop a perpendicular line to the bottom side from the top angle. giving you "2" right triangles put back to back, making one triangle.

if thats not the answer then there is none. triangles add up to 180 degrees, so do 2 right triangles.
#15
90 + 90 = 180.

How many degrees are there in a triangle? 180.

How many angles are there in a triangle? 3.

Right angle = 90.

180/3 = 60.

Impossible.

its impossible. tell ur teacher to get ****ed. a triangle is made of 3 sides, the internal angles total up to 180. if two sides are 90 each...

honestly


tell him to get ****ed for his **** teaching.

Well, it's sorta like this.

that is not a triangle dip****. a triangle is a complete shape consisiting of 3 sides.

2 right angles inside a triangle. It could be a trick question like that!
#24
Uh, just set one triangle within the other? Don't contort them at all, except for making them smaller.

It does work. It's called non-euclidean geometry.

Join two points on the earths equator and the north pole as a triangle and it's angles will be greater than 180 degrees.

My mind is going. I can feel it.

if the triangle is on a sphere it can have all 3 right angles, you teacher wasnt pulling your leg

Perhaps put it on a concave surface? I hear that changes the degrees of the angles...Otherwise I have no slight clue.

You're doing it wrong.

It's impossible.

EDIT: To all you people who say you can do it if it was on a circle... you're still doing it wrong; if it has depth, its not a triangle, its a pyramid...

But that's 2 triangles.

Think of the line in the middle only extending to half way up the middle or something. I should've made it dotted so the nitpickers couldn't complain. The real intent is rather obvious but people still feel the need to point out possible errors
If you were honestly thinking the I just drew 2 right triangles back to back to form a big triangle then I am sorry and the above statement does not apply to you.

Quote by MTVget0FFtheAIR
that is interesting, but it's not really a triangle is it?


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Euclidean_geometry

It is a triangle though.

Hint, spacetime is curved like that, and all triangles are like that to some degree.

Hyperbolic and ecliptic geometry is more important on the grand scheme of things than Euclidean geometry.

project a triangle onto a sphere?

/this

its called spherical geometry. most angles and shapes are skewed and then the triangle can have 180 degrees
