Special right triangle
A special right triangle is a right triangle with some regular feature that makes calculations on the triangle easier, or for which simple formulas exist. For example, a right triangle may have angles

Right triangle
A right triangle (American English) or right-angled triangle (British), or more formally an orthogonal triangle, formerly called a rectangled triangle (Ancient Greek: ὀρθόσγωνία, lit. 'upright angle')
Heronian triangle
In geometry, a Heronian triangle (or Heron triangle) is a triangle whose side lengths a, b, and c and area A are all integers. Heronian triangles are named after Heron of Alexandria, based on their re
Automedian triangle
In plane geometry, an automedian triangle is a triangle in which the lengths of the three medians (the line segments connecting each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side) are proportional to th
Acute and obtuse triangles
An acute triangle (or acute-angled triangle) is a triangle with three acute angles (less than 90°). An obtuse triangle (or obtuse-angled triangle) is a triangle with one obtuse angle (greater than 90°
Sierpiński triangle
The Sierpiński triangle (sometimes spelled Sierpinski), also called the Sierpiński gasket or Sierpiński sieve, is a fractal attractive fixed set with the overall shape of an equilateral triangle, subd
Skinny triangle
In trigonometry, a skinny triangle is a triangle whose height is much greater than its base. The solution of such triangles can be greatly simplified by using the approximation that the sine of a smal
Integer triangle
An integer triangle or integral triangle is a triangle all of whose sides have lengths that are integers. A rational triangle can be defined as one having all sides with rational length; any such rati
Equilateral triangle
In geometry, an equilateral triangle is a triangle in which all three sides have the same length. In the familiar Euclidean geometry, an equilateral triangle is also equiangular; that is, all three in
Isosceles triangle
In geometry, an isosceles triangle (/aɪˈsɒsəliːz/) is a triangle that has two sides of equal length. Sometimes it is specified as having exactly two sides of equal length, and sometimes as having at l
Golden triangle (mathematics)
A golden triangle, also called a sublime triangle, is an isosceles triangle in which the duplicated side is in the golden ratio to the base side:
Hyperbolic triangle
In hyperbolic geometry, a hyperbolic triangle is a triangle in the hyperbolic plane. It consists of three line segments called sides or edges and three points called angles or vertices. Just as in the
Circular triangle
In geometry, a circular triangle is a triangle with circular arc edges.
Calabi triangle
The Calabi triangle is a special triangle found by Eugenio Calabi and defined by its property of having three different placements for the largest square that it contains. It is an obtuse isosceles tr
Kepler triangle
A Kepler triangle is a special right triangle with edge lengths in geometric progression. The ratio of the progression is where is the golden ratio, and the progression can be written: , or approximat
Reuleaux triangle
A Reuleaux triangle [ʁœlo] is a curved triangle with constant width, the simplest and best known curve of constant width other than the circle. It is formed from the intersection of three circular dis
Heptagonal triangle
A heptagonal triangle is an obtuse scalene triangle whose vertices coincide with the first, second, and fourth vertices of a regular heptagon (from an arbitrary starting vertex). Thus its sides coinci
Ideal triangle
In hyperbolic geometry an ideal triangle is a hyperbolic triangle whose three vertices all are ideal points. Ideal triangles are also sometimes called triply asymptotic triangles or trebly asymptotic
